"I like to take these poll results with a grain of salt. I've met a number of people who identify as Christian & yet have never read the Bible. They have only the most nebulous idea of what it's all about. The same goes for science. I…"
"When the guy went full crazy on you, you'd already won. Anyone, except another crazy, seeing that post will think "that guy's crazy/a fanatic/ignorant/rude etc.". Sounds harsh but it's true. Take the case of the Ken Ham vs.…"
"I've heard Ken Ham use this same liturgy on several occasions. Very similar to some of the poetic books of the bible. Essentially rhetorical questions in poetic form.

"I usually say to the religious "I just don't share your beliefs." & leave at that. There's very little point in arguing unless you really enjoy that sort of thing. It's really none of their business anyway.
"To be honest, "left brained" thinking is not my forte. I see a big picture of interconnected things & events which I have to deconstruct into a sequential order for others to understand. My picture makes sense to me but it is woven…"
"I've read through your arguments and they all pre-suppose that a supernatural agent is guiding evolution to produce a particular result. Doesn't fly. Evolution is the process by which self organizing systems adapt to their changing…"
"Yeah, I found entropy a bit of a mind bender. Coffee helps.
The general public doesn't have a clue about thermodynamics so it is easy for preachers, who are trained speakers, to redefine terms & cloud the issue. Also, creationists…"
