I don’t think you’d be saying that if you say his joke of a movie on Creationism, “Expelled”… He’s either a complete idiot or a liar who makes money pandering to idiots.

So typical of the right- Zimmerman kills a black kid- it was the black kids fault… Zimmerman abuses his wife, it was the woman’s fault… Zimmerman beats up an old man, it was the old man’s fault… Zimmerman beats up a cop, it was the cops fau… Wait a tic! I thought conservatives were victim rights advocates and friends of law enforcement? This guy has a track record of violence and lying… He is a threat to society as a whole, yet he walks free to continue this behavior because of people like you… The so called “tough on crime” crowd… Why do you defend this guy and what is it going to take for you to realize that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS THE THUG??? Or is everyone else around him a liar and he’s the only noble man left ? Yea I don’t think so

@binge_thinker I decided to reply to a 10 month old thread just to come on and laugh you off the Internet… Gee, I didn’t realize that Darwinian evolution had been disproven by all those fields of science! You better publish your findings! You are going to win the Nobel Peace Prize for overturning a century’s worth of established science that is accepted by over 99% of the scientific community!!! To claim your Nobel Prize! You’ve earned it! Please enlighten us as to how organisms can not evolve outside of their species despite hundreds of observed examples of speciation both in the lab and in the field ! Seriously ! Enlighten us and claim your prize ! You must be on the level of Galileo! …. Moron

Yes- you can be the Party of Reagan, he’s the best your party has to offer… We Dems can be the Party of Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln – that’s right, I said Lincoln – the 1860′s Republicans have essentially become today’s democrats, and the racist Southern Dems have become the core of the GOP thanks to Nixon

@CapnCrumbles32 – nobody is disputing that you can see Russia from Alaska… From a tiny area near the Bering Strait anyway… Palin is mocked because she was claimed to have foreign policy experience … When asked what, she cited Russia’s physical proximity to Alaska as if Putin is always “rearing his head” up in desolate Siberia…
And I’m sorry but, if you are a young earth creationist, you should be disqualified from virtually every position of power and influence… Because if you’re stupid and uneducated enough to believe the earth is 6,000 years old, you really can’t be trusted to do anything… I actually wonder how someone that ignorant can even manage their own lives, much less the affairs of others. You spit on the scientific and technological advancements that enable you to live… You call the intelligent men and women who have given you your way of life liars and charlatans. You should be disqualified from receiving modem medical care and you should throw away the computer you’re typing on right now considering you don’t trust how it was made-
Thanks to the discovery of evolution, your life and the life of billions of others have been saved, over and over from bacteria that used to kill millions…
And the false dichotomy you present is laughable… We either must believe we came from nothing or believe the world is 6k years old? Most educated people believe in both the proper 4.6 billion year old age of the earth AND God- as well as evoluti
Oh but Snopes must be fake too right? Because they debunk conspiracy nonsense espoused by nutcases like you … You take all credibility away from those of us that have actual problems with the President

@johnpaulkutchtajr what the hell does ANY of your rant have to do with this story ? Can’t you give your insane beliefs a rest for 5 minutes ? You open your comment with a straw man- where you say border patrol is not allowed to arrest illegal aliens under current policy – that is demonstrably false and so is the rest of your argument …
And the dollar collapsing? Where the HELL do you get that ? The dollar is incredibly strong right now and it’s not going anywhere in our lifetime… Do you understand the monetary system at all?

@4xeverything – wow … Your ability to blame everything that happens in the news on Obama is truly impressive … You are so insightful … Just one thing – you realize that an over active Police State is the wish of Republicans and Law & Order conservatives… not liberals, right? Or are you too ignorant to know what your own belief system stands for?
And why didn’t these cops go after the people who SOLD this girl the “alcohol”- I believe they would have been more at fault than the person who buys the “alcohol”

And before you tell me to “go put on my Girl Scout uniform” – let me preface by saying that I served two tours in Iraq, was awarded two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star, and am currently on 70% disability … And whatever little heroism I displayed to earn my Bronze Star is nothing compared to what some of my brothers in my squad did – Those are some real heroes- I don’t consider myself a hero compared to them- I was just doing my job- Two of them have literally died for me
March 28, 2013 at 9:05pm
Devildog- you complain about people talking “smack about their government” in one breath, then you call the Commander and Chief “Obraindead” in another.. Thanks for your service, but you are a disgrace… Show some respect for the office of the Presidency… I guess you didn’t learn that in your 21 years of service… I’d rather have my children serve under Obama than Bush- at least Obama is trying to get them OUT of war not into unnecessary war …. Talk about disrespect of the vets – sending them to die in Iraq under false pretenses is the ULTIMATE disrespect… And the OP’s point is is that vets are human beings, just like any profession.. I would say that most are overall decent human beings, but of course there are going to be bad people who just happened to serve too… Major Hassan, Oswald, the vets who come home and shoot up a diner, John Kerry, etc etc… For anyone to say that being a vet makes you automatically a good person, has their head up their ass… It doesn’t – You can be a hero on the battlefield and a terrible person in every other aspect of your life- like I said – most are good people – but not even close to ALL… McClellan is a vet and I’ve heard a lot of you posters call him names like “Muslim” and “Commie” (your default insults even when they make no sense), so apparently, you don’t like ALL vets either
March 28, 2013 at 8:47pm
“THEIR sacrifice” ? McClellan IS a vet you freaking mope… Why don’t you show HIM some respect ? His father was also a vet… He didn’t want a tax payer funded military funeral for his father because his father was not a hero… And he doesn’t want one for himself because he admits he wasn’t a hero either… Many vets come from poor backgrounds, where they have no choice but to serve- and most of them never come close to seeing a theater of war- Many do not even leave the country- they may get an office job for a couple of years and then take their discharge and GI Bill… It is laudable, like he said, to serve your country in any fashion- but it’s not necessarily heroism… And they aren’t doing it for charity either – it’s a job just like anything else… Obviously, if you served in any theater of war, that changes things … To me, they are all heroes – the Afghan and Iraqi War Vets- But the guy who play in the Naval concert band for 4 years in San Diego, I’m sorry but that is not a hero.. Great person? Probably- but heroism shouldn’t have such a wide definition .. If they are all heroes and deserve military funerals than what about Major Hassan? How about Lee Harvey Oswald?

You dim fool, sacredhonor1776… I’m not sure you know what the definition of euthanasia is in the modern world as it applies to humans … Nazis were not euthanizing disabled people… They were murdering them … They did not consent to dying .. Nor were they terminally ill and suffering … Nazis killed people just because they didn’t fit their “master race”… Pretty big difference , don’t you think? If I’m 90 years old, in intense, untreatable pain from an incurable that’s going to cause my death in the very near future, and I’m so weak I can’t even muster the strength to kill myself… And I’m of sound mind and request to die on my own terms under the care of a physician … And I fill out all the proper forms and consent… It’s called euthanasia … Not NAZISM… Please tell me you can tell the difference … One is cold blooded killing (obviously without consent), the other is mercy… I really can’t believe I have to explain that to you …
On a side note, you guys are doing a great job defending psycho Mourduck … Keep it up and I’m sure you’ll win in a landslide with 100% of the women’s vote

Ok … So we can all agree that voluntary, individual prayer has always been allowed in schools (and still is)… If a teacher disciplines a student for partaking in a private prayer on their own time that is not disruptive to others … That teacher is wrong and the courts will rule against him or her… So what is it that you an Ryan want then? It seems you want to allow the states to decide whether they want to permit mandatory, school employee led school prayer … First off, WHY would you want unionized, government employees leading your children in prayer? No matter how non-sectarian they may or may not try to make the prayer … It is going to infringe on someone’s religious freedom.. You’re going to trust school (a government institution) to choose the “right prayer” ? It’s the government for crying out loud !! They can’t do anything right .. I thought we were conservatives here?? Those in favor sound like big gov libs… And secondly.. If you think this is a state’s issue, you are flat out wrong.. State government can not infringe on anybody’s 1st amendment rights thanks to the 14 amendment … Mandatory school prayer is government sponsored religion … And this argument was settled once and for all in the 1960′s … Voluntary, private prayer = ok.. School led, mandatory prayer = UNCONSTITUTIONAL !!!!
sorry but,you talk too much,
Christians Pray to GOD

Sorry Sleazy…. I misread what you said about primitive genomes.. You do indeed know there are one celled organisms that contain larger genomes than us.. I was just trying to show you that there can be a loss of genetic information as who from the simple to the complex and it has no bearing on how complex the organism is… It’s not the amount of information .. It’s how the information is used
September 6, 2012 at 8:06am
Sleazy.. Your assertion that simple forms of life have less genetic information than us is simply not true… The amoeba has one of the largest genomes known to science .. 200 times larger than ours .. As do many one celled organisms .. Is there genetic information necessarily useful? No.. But it’s there in abundance … Surely you knew this already ?
September 6, 2012 at 7:53am
Sleezy… Nice job “disproving” vistigiality by citing non scientific creationist arguments and quote mining people like Gould… You and your creationist buddies better go tell the vast majority of biologists about your “findings” because for some reason the scientific consensus does not agree with you … How about you start by publishing your research and getting it peer reviewed … You should have your Nobel Prize in no time for answering all these questions that seem to contradict all of modern biology … Well? What are you waiting for, genius ?
September 6, 2012 at 7:38am
JD… Are you really that ignorant or are you just trolling? Plate tectonics did not just magically throw oyster shells on top of mountains.. The mountains weren’t there to begin with … Converging plates FORMED the mountains … All you had to have was marine life near a tectonic boundary when it collided with another that went on to form a mountain range … The oyster shells could be at sea level one day and at a much higher elevation millions of years later If they were located near an orogeny … This is basic geology, kid… Did you not graduate middle school? Also.. There is not enough water available to submerge the highest mountains on earth.. And even if there was.. Where the hell did it go ? Especially if a global flood happened 4k years ago as you claim.. If there was that much water on earth only 4k years ago.. We would still be flooded .. Or did God just snap his fingers and it went away? And If he was gonna use magic in the first place .. Why not just snap his fingers and kill everyone except Noah and company, rather than go through the trouble of a scientifically impossible flood? The guy sounds really indecisive if you ask me.. Can’t choose between natural and supernatural means… Why even bother studying science if God can just change the rules to the natural world as he goes on a whim ? Do you see why your idiocy is holding back mankind?
September 6, 2012 at 6:49am
@QUINCYSMITH HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH you still don’t understand the difference between a scientific theory and the layman’s theory???? I believe i’ve explained it several times already on this thread… scientifically illiterate morons like you have never bothered to pick up a simple dictionary let alone a science textbook to learn what the word theory means as it pertains to science… I’ve tried to explain it using scientific terminology (like how a theory is the best explanation for how an aspect of the natural world works.. a hypothesis that has been supported by fact, observation, experiment, peer review, etc), but your uneducated brain can’t wrap around that… so i will use a colloquial definition… as far as you are concerned .. Hypothesis equals “theory”, Scientific theory equals FACT … Creationism is a poorly made hypothesis at best… Evolution is one of the most heavily supported scientific theories known to man.. DO YOU SERIOUSLY NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCIENTIFIC THEORY AND “THEORY” ???? YOU ARE A WASTE OF LIFE AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO CONSERVATIVES ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY ! ! ! YOU CAN NOT EVEN GRASP THE MOST BASIC TENETS OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD THAT WE ALL LEARNED IN 3RD FREAKING GRADE… Sorry to yell but that seems like the only way to get across to complete imbeciles these days… And the fact that you can act so self-righteous, arguing what is so demonstrably wrong makes you even more abhorrent… You contribute nothing to
Not to mention i’ve seen many more than 3 people on this thread alone claim we live on a young earth… next time do some research before you start opening your mouth and chastising people for not believing your scientifically illiterate worldview
September 6, 2012 at 6:01am
I’m sorry Freedom.Fighter… but enlighten me on what the difference between creationism and intelligence design are… From what has been demonstrated in a court of law… (see Kitzmller vs. Dover), the people behind intelligent design are the EXACT SAME PEOPLE as the people behind creationism (The Discovery Institute) … In their mission statement, they literally just replaced the word “creationism” with “intelligent design” and left everything else… Both philosophies teach the exact same thing… that species arrived magically on the earth in their current form and never evolved … the only difference is… creationism identifies the “designer” as the Christian God and intelligent design identifies the designer as a generic god with heavy implications that it is indeed the Christian God… No matter who the designer is.. both of these unscientific philosophies fly in the face of what over 99% of all scientists on earth believe. That’s not to say scientists can’t believe in God.. Many scientists (as well as the Catholic Church and many major Protestant denominations), believe in theistic evolution… meaning evolution obviously happened, but the process was guided by God in some way.. This is what i personally believe as well… But the concept of God has no place in the scientific world because science studies the NATURAL world.. God is outside of nature and therefore is immeasurable by science. God is an unknown and science can only deal with what is and can
