"David, I look forward to the next chapter review. I would much rather hear your opinion than have to slog through Ken's work in its entirety on my own. That would mean (shudder) paying for the book. To me his ideas are fascinating and repugnant…"

"Sorry Todd. I meant for Ken's stupidity to speak for itself. My summary of the next chapter I intend to be more in-depth."

"Uh, I'm confused by this critique. I guess you are trying to say it was more nonsense from the evangelical king of stupidity? now I get it! Science is a religion (like "off" is a TV channel!) Makes about as much sense as "The…"

Chapter 1 of 'The Lie' by Ken Ham

Being tolerant of anything means that you are intolerant of anything Christian. Christians no longer have the right to impose their views on society. To say that people shouldn't be dogmatic is actually dogmatic. Christian absolutes are no longer acceptable as absolutes, therefore Christianity will eventually be outlawed.It seems most scientists are biased, and most don't wear white lab coats. There are basically two types of scientists - those with penises and those without penises. Whether or…See More

Dave Godfrey commented on Randall Smith's blog post Onion's definition of Atheism
"If only people wouldn't insist that there is a god, we who are affirmative atheists would be able to stand down. As long as there are creatures who want kids to grow up stupid and ignorant, we are needed to defend knowledge and education."

Jerry Wesner commented on Dave Godfrey's blog post The Lie
"People who have a belief in god as a basis of their being cannot comprehend where we're coming from.  Whatever supports their belief they would see as proof; whatever conflicts with it must be falsehood.  And living without god would…"

Dave Godfrey commented on Dave Godfrey's blog post The Lie
"Thanks, Loren. I can only take so much of this stuff at any one time. However, I have read Lewis' book and found it woefully unconvincing. Like other pro-god books, it makes its claims from the assumption that God exists."

The Lie

I have managed to get hold of a free copy of Ken Ham's magnum Opus, The Lie. This is probably the original version, rather than the recently revised edition, but doubt that this affects the book's overall message.As I am currently reading three other books (including one which is about real science), I'll take Ham's piece by piece over the coming months, and will post my thoughts as I finish each chapter. I'll then post an overall critique on the Goodreads website.I'll be completely honest, and…See More

"Florida hurricanes, even when tornadoes accompanied them, failed to persuade me that I am a passenger on a poorly-built vehicle we call Earth. California's earthquakes succeeded. "

"Hadn't thought about this one.  Just another common sense reason among many that a god didn't create the earth."

http://chartsbin.com/view/wwuAccording to Genesis, God gave the world to Adam and Eve, to put it another way, to humanity. But look at the figures in the above link. Nearly 70% of the Earth is covered in salt water, so is generally uninhabitable to mankind. Of the land less than 10% is good, arable farmland. Man is essentially unable to survive on more than 90% of the Earth's surface. Gee, that's some gift. Thank you for your generosity, God.See More

Bodie Hodge - don't let this moron anywhere near your children

http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2013/02/15/deceiving-children-about-god



Once again Bodie Hodge, probably the most cowardly piece of shit Answers in Genesis has on its staff, has written what amounts to an attack on atheists. In fact, it is an attack on intelligent people. The problem is, he lobs these pathetic bombs around but is not prepared to hear an alternative… Continue

Welcome, Dave.  Someone on A/N said recently that we are all born atheist before we get brain washed.  You are very fortunate to have been able to remain that way.
