Young Earth Creationism Is The Result Of Brain Damage

As PZ Myers mentions, Young Earth Creationists absolutely hate being reminded that their World-View is only Seventh Day Adventist propaganda, which originated from their leader's brain damage Hallucinations.

BeginningAndEnd.com, Creationist Haven, No Intelligence Exists In Advocates Of That Website!!

A friend of mine who enjoys trolling websites posted a comment back in 2012 on the Creationist Haven called BeginningAndEnd.com.

I allowed him to use my Account and Alias on this site, because I had stopped trolling it myself as I considered such site full of complete Idiots as a waste of time, since they either don't reply for weeks or they simply scrub the posts if they find them too alarming.

This site (Beginningandend.com) supports Creationism, Illuminati…

Wendy Wright - USA should be Ashamed of having any Such Idiots in Leadership Positions.

I still cannot get over the interview between Richard Dawkins and Wendy Wright, published around Xmas time 2012, such stupidity and Irrationality displayed by Wendy rings sadly in my ears, I felt totally dismayed that any person leading a lobby group could be that STUPID.

I've witnessed such arrogant stupidity from general, poorly educated citizens who held basic desk and clerical jobs, many never having met nor studied science in their lives.

Every time I hear…

Creationism's New label

I posted a discussion on Atheist News earlier today about the Oklahoma House Education Committee passing a Creationist bill, but it's not just evolution that the religious legislators want to eradicate from the science curriculum. It's also physical science, escpeically physical science as it pertains to things like climate change and stem cell research.



For this, Creationsts have developed a new strategy, marketing these bills as defending the "academic freedom" of students and…

Creationists say the funniest things....

Stolen from an actual conversation on Facebook between "J" an Intelligent Design proponent who thinkings evolutionary theory is not to be believed and some fellow believers in woo....



Irony abounds...





J: Why is it that young-earth creationist papers (published in creationist journals and peer-reviewed by other creationists) generally quite explicitly start off by assuming what they're trying to prove?



K: Confirmation bias.



J: Many of the… Continue

Millions Leaving the Church, While Legislators Waste Time and Money

In the past decade more than 100 million people have left the Christian Church, but that has not stopped conservative religionist from trying to force their point of view into public schools. Since Texas passed its “prayer bill” in 2006, numerous “Bible Belt”…

Chapter Three; THE RISE OF SCIENCE part seven

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.



1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

More of an alert than a blog.

I heard about this place being planned when I was coming back home from Skepticon III In Springfield, MO a few weeks ago and just got around to finding the link. I am not sure what stages they are at but it is clear on the radio that they are moving ahead with this perversion of science.

So here is the link for The Creation Museum of The Ozarks: http://www.creationmuseumoto.org/

Share and enjoy!

The Evil Forces of Misinformation

Cross-posted from my blog.



There are a lot of things in this world that annoy me. Fundamentalists, Fox News, Jenny McCarthy and the anti-vax nuts...they all make me a little crazy and prone to violent ranting. So does passive-aggressiveness, but that's neither here nor there. The thing that these… Continue

Pastors pray for the only Ghanaian Hydroelectric Dam (Akosombo Dam)

Akosombo Dam, The only Hydroelectric Dam in Ghana prayed for by group of pastors so rains come down or be restored to supply the country's energy. They believe its the devil stopping the rains. so wont look for any solutions or renewable sources of energy, they get an excuse like always its the devil and satan. Ignorance once again.



Why do we as a people sit down, watch for a Dam like this to run out of water without looking at…

Kirk Cameron, UnCensored

Added by Jeremy on October 26, 2009 at 1:53pm — 2 Comments

My Response And Thoughs On Kirk Camerons Video "Origin Into Schools"

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

Creationism, You Gotta Be Kiddin'

When I was teaching biology in the late ‘60s, I’m trying to picture what would have happened if a colleague came up to me and asked if I were teaching the biblical account of creation. It was after all a Catholic school.



I’m trying to think of what I would have replied if my job weren’t on the line. As tennis great John McEnroe liked to yell, “You can’t be serious. You want me to teach the story of Adam and Eve and the talking snake in a science class? How about Shadrach, Meshach,… Continue

How to respond to requests to debate creationists

Linked from Pharyngula



This is such a great response to a request from the Discovery Institute to debate a creationist that I had to post it here:



A professor at the University of Vermont, Nicholas Gotelli, got an invitation to debate one of the clowns at the Discovery Institute. Here's what they wrote.

Why do creationists reject evolution? A scienfitic study.

A Reason for Everything

Instinctively making sense of the world

by Hania Koever



Charles Darwin should be spinning in his grave: more than 40 percent of American adults still don't believe in evolution. Though Darwin's theory has been universally accepted by scientists, public resistance remains remarkably forceful. Meanwhile, creationism and intelligent design enjoy widespread public support.



UC Berkeley psychologist Tania Lombrozo is interested in why people… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt14

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”

By:Aron Ra



In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,



“100% absolutely –without the use of faith”.



Of course that didn’t happen. Religious beliefs –as everyone knows- are assumed on faith in lieu of proof and regardless of evidence. Cameron and… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt13

The 13th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Evolution is a fraud!”

By: Aron Ra



Ernst Haeckel was a pioneer zoologist and taxonomist whose numerous contributions to biology go largely unnoticed compared to a couple rather odd errors. First, he proposed that “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", suggesting that embryonic development reflects the organism’s evolutionary ancestry. To illustrate this, he produced about a hundred drawings of embryos at various stages.… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt11

The 11th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Macroevolution has never been observed.”

By: Aron Ra



You share more traits in common with your siblings than you do with your cousins due to the recent ancestors you share with them, your parents. Deeper down, you share more in common with those in your extended family than you do with neighbors and classmates, etc., people you don’t recognize as part of your biological family. But you must realize that on some level… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt10

The 10th falsehood of creationism; “The evolutionary ‘tree of life’ is nowhere implied neither in the fossil record, nor in any aspect of biology.”

By: Aron Ra



Creationists often complain that science supposedly says there was only one universal ancestor of all livings and that along the way, we evolved both into, and then from, bacteria. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. 21st century revelations in genomic research now imply that the origins of evolution come… Continue
