Martinson commented on Dr. Terence Meaden's group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Yeah it's silly to say that all christians believe in transubstantiation (I can't believe spell check knows that word and insists that christians is capitalized) It's especially ridiculous to say that specific people must believe in…"

Martinson replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"But even if Jo had been referring to Matt as "guy on the internet", it wouldn't matter. It's a valid description and a valid point. He defends Jesus with the zeal of a born again christian, but when cornered whittles that…"

Martinson commented on Earther's blog post 911 Mosque
"Considering that the building in question isn't in fact next to the Ground Zero site, I really don't mind. Ordinarily I have a slight aversion to new construction of religious buildings but I can support this one because it pisses off the…"

Atheist Morality

A place for atheists to discuss morality issues. What shapes your morality? What new perspectives have you found since abandoning faith (if you ever had any)? Is there any merit to religious moral authority?

Martinson replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Solar System Now Thought to be 4.57 Billion Years Old in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Indeed, Fred claims that blue eyes will be gone in a few generations but I'd be willing to make a very large wager that this will not happen. Recessive genes don't just die out; two brown eyed parents can have blue eyed children, but two…"

Martinson replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Solar System Now Thought to be 4.57 Billion Years Old in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"4 seconds out of 3 hours, yes. 4 seconds out of a lifetime, no. I agree with your view but don't promate bad math please. You're wrong by several orders of magnitude."

"As I said, the discovery is significant, not the age difference."

Martinson replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Solar System Now Thought to be 4.57 Billion Years Old in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Nice link. The title is misleading though; 1.9 million years less than 4.57 billion is still 4.57 billion. This is a significant but not groundbreaking discovery. It's like me discovering that I am 4 days older than previous estimates."

Martinson replied to Marc Draco's discussion Or are we Dancer? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"That's often true, but what then does deficiency imply? It's not a judgment of value, only that something is missing which is present in most cases. Lack of character, intelligence, and money all seem bad because those are qualities that…"

Martinson replied to Marc Draco's discussion Or are we Dancer? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Belief in the absence of gods is the position that might require proving a negative, but that isn't a good description of atheism. My point is that it's a false dichotomy to say that one must either believe that gods exist or believe that…"
Aug 17, 2010
Martinson replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"If 900 prior posts haven't convinced you that every element of christianity is recycled from other religions, I don't expect that anything will. Do you believe that his miracles and divinity are literally true? What about his parables and…"
Aug 17, 2010
Martinson replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"I'm not asking questions or defending any position, and the assertion that I need to read 85 pages of comments to understand the question is ridiculous. I simply don't accept the Bible as a historically accurate source."

Martinson replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Most likely "he" was several people amalgamated into one convenient archetypal hero, with the stories strongly exaggerated and manipulated to match prophecies and claims of divinity. Yeshua means salvation in Hebrew."
