Some pearls of (un)wisdom from a creationist on facebook.

"You are checking theism with twisted, naturalistic logic. The two are completely incompatible, and thus one cannot define the other. That is the greatest fallacy of those who support Naturalism, thinking that they have an upper hand in defining the undefinable."

"If God wanted himself to be able to be tested by his own creation, then we could do so. We can't, and thus He doesn't."

"Since God works 100% through natural methods (meaning he rarely comes down to earth and "supernaturally" interacts with it), then everything [...] should have a natural, non-supernatural explanation to begin with, and all you need to do is find just a few examples that shift the credibility back to a naturalistic world view."

"I could show you, but it wouldn't make sense to you. The idea of placing faith above reason is irrational. I'll give you this much. Starting there (faith above reason) allows us to attribute the mechanisms of this world to something greater than us."

"This isn't that hard. It's simply a matter of taking the source of all matter, energy, and everything else, seeing that there is complexity, and saying - "I call that God."

"Any 'hard evidence' I have would be misinterpreted, because it would not fit within your belief system"

"Our belief system (theism) starts with God, with a source, and trickles down. If you don't have that, and you are trying understand it from the fundamentals of Naturalism, then you are wasting your time."

"You call our evidence weak because it is founded on a God that exists outside the walls of our reality. Fine by me."





Why do people laugh at Creationists? (Only Creationists don't understand why!!) :-P


To satisfy my 'naturalistic leanings' I'm taking the afternoon off to go and browse an exhibition of photos from Volcanoes.

Richard ∑wald - exactly.

My personal favourite was:

"If God wanted himself to be able to be tested by his own creation, then we could do so. We can't, and thus He doesn't."

According to him:


I am "obsessed with having God fit into your naturalistic logic. How can you attempt to demand he obey your logic, if the very definition of who we are discussing is beyond your reality and level of knowledge?"

- So how does he know anything about god's properties, such that he is beyond our ability to know anythign about it?

"Trickledown theology"? I love it. Thanks for the laugh. I can't wait to work that into conversations!

Every single one of those is question begging/circular reasoning.

…Some things never change.

Wait a minute! Trickle down theology? Isn't that the disastrous economic theory Ronald Reagan touted in the 1980's? Oh, I forgot. As far as theists and republicans are concerned, Reagan was god. My personal definition:

Trickle Down - What a dog does to a fire hydrant.

"Trickledown theology" is a hilarious concept!  Then there's the concept of "God intended for you to not see him.  So, the fact that you don't see him proves he exists".

This is the volcano that you can see from my window.  Not this view, which is much much better than mine.  I love volcanoes.

People who don't like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn't have such funny beliefs.
