    Yes because clearly there is nothing at all wrong with our public education system. We have time and money to spend on this. I mean just look at all the countries ahead of us in education and look at how much time they give their students to learning about religious texts.

    In fact, the only countries that seem deeply concerned with getting impressionable children to read religious texts… Are the one’s run by Muslims.

    What an interesting coincidence.

    “he argument of Intelligent Design has all but crushed the theory of evolution.”

    Might want to look up the results of the Dover trial, it sort of went the other way for the creationists. ID was literally a laughing stock in that debate.

    “It’s not a science book, but everywhere it speaks of observable science, it’s accurate.”

    Really? You can cure diseases through animal sacrifice and throwing blood around? You can influence genetics of animals by having them stare at patterns why they mate?

    The people who wrote the Bible thought the earth was flat, that the sun went around the earth, and dozens upon dozens of other things that we know are wrong. Any modern human with even a high school level of education would know far more about the earth than the so called ‘divinely inspired’ authors of the Bible.

    Go look up what a theory is, because right now you just demonstrated that you don’t know what you’re talking about. A theory is not a guess, it’s not conjecture, it’s not ‘what we think’, the word ‘theory’ has a different meaning in science than it does in standard everyday language, the same way ‘proof’ has a different meaning in math than everyday language.

    A theory is an explanation of all observable evidence.

    Darwin wrote his book over 150 years ago. Do you have any idea how much that science has advanced since then? Modern evolutionary science does not pick up a copy of that book to learn, they merely acknowledge who came up with the initial theory while they learn the new information discovered since is publication.

    Which confirms everything Darwin thought.

    Actually the devils best lie would be convincing everyone that obviously evil acts in the Bible are the work of a good and loving being and that doing the unspeakably evil and cruel thing of condemning people to torture could ever be done by any being that was good or holy.

    If I have to explain it? Okay.

    It is illegal under the First Amendment.

    If you want to know specifically why your religion is repugnant, I’ll be glad to tell you, but what I find offensive doesn’t actually matter.

    One the labs at work uses nanotubes and bucky balls made of various things, including this stuff, in experiments. They are looking in to ways to make medicines that will remain within ‘containers’ and only target disease causing agents.

    Imagine a medicine that actively looked for cancer cells for example, then injected itself in to the cells and killed them.

    Cell reprogramming might also be possible but that’s not likely within the next 20 years.

    No, it is not now nor will it ever be ‘bigoted’ to call out homophobes for what they are and under no circumstance will you ever get a free pass to be a bigot just because you think your sky genie told you it was okay.

    So you’re going to be stoning people who work on Sunday?

    This is a sin punishable by death.

    @bonesii

    All you’ve done is demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of the scientific method.

    That ‘condescending’ thing you see? Yes, that would be because you sit there like so many creationists with NO IDEA what you’re talking about trying to tell people who live, work, and breath this stuff every day that they are all wrong based around non-scientific crap. If you’re going to say evolution is wrong, whatever, but at least understand what it says first.

    There are geocentrist websites too, if somebody linked to one what are you going to do, ignore all of the math, physics, and science you know that says ‘This is horse manure’? Of course you’re not.

    You didn’t have a single solitary clue what a falsification method was the first time I asked you. This was a massive demonstration of just how scientifically literate you actually are which is why all you can do is puke up creationist crap you pulled from the internet. You don’t pull actual peer reviewed research or any of that, you rely on the grossly misinformed creationists who must surely know more than people who dedicate their life to studying this without bias.

    You want to know why you didn’t get a response to your most recent failed attempt at a falsification method? Link to us a scientific resource that defines what the ‘Law of Information’. Go ahead. After you provide that source, tell us why it supports creationism but does not support evolution.

    I’ll be here to watch you fail.

    “You must have waited a long time for that opening!”

    I will always point out when a concept people think their religion came up with… actually predates it

    “No other group is moral. You are probably right.”

    The idea that nobody except Christians can be moral is laughable, the idea that they have any kind of moral superiority is even more laughable.

    “You always have such a cheery tone about you and the comments you write.”

    I am a reflection of what I deal with and I am tired, but then I did just wake up. Have to go to work now though.

    Oh we needed another racist around here. Really.

    You didn’t spell ‘stormfront’ right, it’s not spelled ‘theblaze’

  • April 22, 2014 at 7:46am

    Of course not. Theists would not have you believe anything else.

  • April 22, 2014 at 7:45am

    Yes, there is.

    @Sweep

    Nobody takes you to court to ‘silence you’. They take you to court to prevent you from using public places and spaces paid for by tax payer money to promote your religion. Nobody tells you that you can’t pray all you want to on private property. Nobody.

    “I don’t make it a habit to publicly insult atheists for their non-belief. “

    Oh but you do, you just don’t see it. First of all you just said that atheists are intent on silencing you, which implies something rather insulting about atheists reasons and motives. Second of all you move on to say this.

    “If God failed to punish the wicked, the atheist would shout that God was arbitrary in His dispensing of justice. “

    I am not wicked. I do not think most people are. You on the other hand seem to think I am wicked, and you don’t see that as insulting?

    You like stories do you?

    The dictatorial leader of a country is engaged in a war against another country. He announces that any soldier or citizen from the opposing country can join his side at anytime of their own free will but if they fail to do so they will be horrifically tortured if they are ever caught. His loyal soldiers constantly tell people that ‘Our leader is kind and just, it’s your own fault that didn’t follow him, you get what you deserve’.

    A man that does this is a monster, a god that does it ‘good’.

    You don’t insult people? You have no idea how insulting your belief system is to anyone outside it.

  • April 21, 2014 at 5:12pm

    Yeah, no other group does it besides Christians.

    Virgin brides is an older concept than your religion is.

    Don’t even think about it.

    I work in a lab associated with a school. I deal with grad students, undergrad students, and high school students (arranged in order of frequency). Start telling people they can “opt out” of comprehensive tests and it will generate a nightmare when these little snow flakes find out “Of course you can opt out… And fail the class” once they hit college.

    Chemistry in particular since it has a national standardized exam that I think most universities use.

    What are you going to do if we still say we don’t believe? Round us up and put us in a concentration camp?

    You do realize that ‘hell’ as a concept makes any being that sends people there more evil and sadistic than the worst Nazis and Communists in history right?

    “Why are atheists so full of hate?”

    You tell people ‘believe as I do or you will be tortured forever when you die’, and you think they deserve it. Who is hateful?

    ‘Do atheists also fight against the false belief in Santa Claus?’

    Find me a group of people over the age of 10 that insist without evidence that Santa exists and that we should all be required to venerate him at public meetings and with displays on public property, and I will also tell you where you can take Santa.

    ‘Come on atheists, grow a set and start targeting Muslims here in America and across the world and their false beliefs called Islam, and do it publicly.’

    The Muslim population in this country is small enough to be insignificant but do not think for one moment that they go without notice by people who really promote secularism.
