Jay Stride replied to John Jubinsky's discussion 4 Out of 10 Americans Say 'God' Created Earth 10,000 Years Ago in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"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…"

Jay Stride replied to Derek Bly's discussion What can you even say about this kind of thinking? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"They should be worshipping the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, whom , in addition to being a great warrior, was an excellent grammarian."

"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.…"

Jay Stride replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Second Law of Thermodynamics in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"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. In response I offer my own poem: What is Going Through Ken Ham's…"

Jay Stride replied to Sven Andersson's discussion Strange Science in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"The YEC people I've met were in deep denial. A woman I worked with claimed that the earth was created old & that fossils, sediment layering, radioactive elements etc. were just put there, by the Christian God, to test our faith. She…"

Jay Stride replied to Sven Andersson's discussion Strange Science in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"HI Sven. Not to worry. Anyone who counts up the generations etc. in Genesis comes up with the same answer: approx. 6000 years. When this was first done in 100 - 200 BCE the date of creation was 5800 BCE. In 1000 CE the date = 4800 BCE. Today YECers…"

Jay Stride replied to James M. Martin's discussion Get Ready To Puke: Religious Dispatches Discusses New Film, "Son of God," in Context of Previous Film Fables
"Rotten Tomatoes rates this "movie" at 22%. Richard Roeper gives it a D+ & states "that in all good conscience" he cannot recommend it. Not surprising as this film is just a recut version of the History Channel's The…"

Jay Stride commented on Suzanne Patterson's blog post Atheists - Are we doormats?
"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. That being…"

Jay Stride commented on Suzanne Patterson's blog post Atheists - Are we doormats?
"We're here to talk. On another note, if people flip out because you politely disagree with their belief just how secure are they in that belief?"

Jay Stride replied to Shaun Johnston's discussion Does the Modern Synthesis entail supernatural agents? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"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…"

Jay Stride replied to Shaun Johnston's discussion Does the Modern Synthesis entail supernatural agents? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"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…"

Jay Stride replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Second Law of Thermodynamics in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Thanks for posting this. It's a great article. Creationists just recycle the same old arguments. I've seen stuff taken verbatim out of the Book of Job. Talk about your old chestnuts."

Jay Stride replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Second Law of Thermodynamics in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"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…"
