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”…

Hubris and Certainty

“I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.”  ~Clarence S. Darrow

 

“Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance.”  ~Bertrand Russell

 

“The educated in [the critical habit of thought] . . . are slow to believe.  They can hold things as possible or probable in all degrees,…

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

God In Chaos; Chapter Nine; THE INTELEGENT DESIGN VIEW OF EVOLUTION part thirty-eight

When addressing some of the issues of the fundamentalist view of evolution

it is important to identify some key words that they use to try to

vilify reasonable scientists and educated people that understand the

concepts of evolution and natural selection. From the way the word

is used by the intelligent design side it seems that the word

“Darwinism” is meant to describe the “believers” in the

Theory of Evolution to make it seem more like a radical belief… Continue

I'm not usually for theist bashing but I can't help but secretly think that those who believe in god are stupid.

Christian friend (CF): How do you know god isn't real?

Me: A lack of supporting evidence.

CF: I have supporting evidence!

Me: Do tell?

CF: Creation

It is all I can do when someone provides such a crap argument not to ... I don't know .... Shake them really hard? I don't want to hurt or brainwash anyone but…

Renowned Skeptic Michael Shermer: Deist or Just Disingenuous?

Has the once-luminary champion of skepticism, and self-proclaimed atheist, recast his lot with religion and thereby reclaimed his erstwhile lost Ichthys?





As an independent scholar, skeptic and atheist, I have followed Dr. Michael Shermer for some years, read all but one of his books, and attended a number of his public lectures, such as TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design.) Shermer is a dynamic, engaging speaker, talented author, and is prolific in his… Continue

Teaching Creation and Intelligent Design as Science

I am so tired of hearing people argue that creation and intelligent design should be taught in science classes alongside evolution. This would be a devastating move. First off, America is already fallen so far behind the rest of the world in terms of science education. Now that we are starting to make some improvements in this sector the religious idiots want to teach creation and intelligent design as science. There is no evidence for the existence of god or creation. The same must be applied… Continue

Another physician displays crippling ignorance about evolution

Pharyngula posted a very good criticism of yet another newcomer to the ranks of the proudly ignorant in an article on OpenSalon's new beta. Hopefully the profound lack of knowledge displayed in the original anti-evolution post is not representative of the clientele in which OpenSalon intends to specialize. The original author of the OpenSalon post appears to be both complimented and annoyed to be… Continue

How Intelligent Is The Intelligent Designer?

If you have been following the developments of Christianity then you have to be aware of the new attempts made by the Christian world to push God down our throats. These Christians claims that evolution is not true, it's just a theory and as a result, they want a new scientific idea to be taught in the schools. This bold new idea was first proposed under the name of Creationism which was turned down as a alternative to Evolution because it was clearly seen as an attempt to put religion in the… Continue
