Lo and behold, this is one of the primary reasons I don’t read the The Blaze much anymore. These childish, wholly unscientific stories do nothing but alienate intelligent, critically thinking people. Being Libertarian/Conservative doesn’t mean believing in childish fairy tales. Noah’s Ark? REALLY? Who actually believes this childish nonsense? Get a grip. Embarrassing.
Well you got your “Black” president. How did it work out for you? Yeah, didn’t think so…

Completely classless, Palin. Keep doing your part to make the Right look exactly how the Left portrays them.

If your god really existed and even cared about people he would never have allowed this accident to happen in the first place.

Yeah right, and the SUV was guided by Satan? You aren’t prone to using logic are you?

Drop dead, Piglosi.

As an Atheist Libertarian Conservative I endorse these shoes.

This sort of repeated childishness of posting these absurd stories on The Blaze convinces me I should no longer bother with this site. You god idiots are nothing but fodder for the Left to ridicule the Right. I still cannot believe The Blaze posts this silly,anti-scientific, superstitious nonsense. Shame.
Again, we believe in the scientific method and scientific facts. Evolution cannot be tested with the scientific method and evolution does not have one fact that supports the change of one species into the next.
Another example of how Darwinist deal with those confronting their faith - call the opposition a "moron" and a knuckle-dragger.
You make absolutely zero sense and do not know what you are talking about.
"I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily."-- Issac Newton
"God existed before there were human beings on Earth, that He holds the entire world, believers and non-believers, in His omnipotent hand for eternity" -- Max Planck (founder of quantum mechanics).
Alexander Polyakov (Soviet mathematician): "We know that nature is described by the best of all possible mathematics because God created it."

Idiot. You give rational conservatives a bad name.
If it's science why can't you prove it? Why aren't there any transitional fossils? I get so sick of hearing that it's science. It's a theory because nobody was there to watch it happen. If it's been millions of years how is it that they find dinosaur bones with soft tissue still intact? How is that bone DNA decays too fast for evolution to be true? There are so many issues with evolution that point to a younger world. My only point is that it's not science (evolution) it's a theory based on a presupposition.
I would say it is a form of religion, because it takes more faith to believe that organized systems can happen from chaotic unorganized randomizations than to see incredibly avanced designs and believe in there is a designer.
No, it is a philosophy. Science has already disproved it.
Personally, I hold that G-d created science. If evolution is science, then G-d created evolution. Evolution cannot disprove G-d because it couldn't exist without creation. Besides, is it unreasonable to believe that G-d endowed his creations with the ability to adapt to changing environments?
It is wrong. You can not naturally select from nothing to produce genetic information. Information always comes from intelligent sources.
"Besides, is it unreasonable to believe that G-d endowed his creations with the ability to adapt to changing environments?"
Not unreasonable at all. As a Christian, I think the same as you do. Evolution is the accepted theory in science for a reason: all the evidence uup to this time has supported it, and not a single piece has contradicted it. Evolution is not abiogenesis (the hypothesis that life can come from nothing), as many seem to think it is. It simply says that organisms will change and mutate over time (and by over time, I mean over many generations). Even the Bible supports this idea. We don't live for hundreds of years like some Old Testament figures. We don't all have the same skin color, or eye color, or height.
My only issue with evolution is when people take it and try to apply a natural experience to social issues; ie, "social Darwinism," "survival of the fittest in business," etc.
If I had another issue it would be some Christians having no idea what evolution is (see some of the other comments here), and railing against it because their pastor told them it's evil and wrong. They don't bother to find out why scientists accept the theory, and instead feel they need to disprove it... which is complicated by the fact that they don't know what the theory is in the first place!
God gave me a brain to think and a world of wonders for me to discover. To me, denying evolution is denying God's gifts to us.
its poor science at that; violating the second law of thermodynamics.
You are saying something came from nothing. You are saying random events created information. You are saying information increased in an organized way against all probability. Here is the scientific principle you are missing: Random events create noise, not information. Mutations are statistically destructive. The error tolerance is less than any reasonable expected mutation would cause especially if you have a long time frame. Time would reduce the organization, not increase it. It is impossible.
@Locked you're a good egg for trying to explain this to folks here. I was going to write something similar to that, but your comment beat me to it. I'm a devout church-goer--every Sunday for liturgy and most Saturdays for Vespers, too. The Eastern Orthodox Church is not for the faint at heart. It's much more challenging than I think most Protestants would probably go along with. It is Christianity as the apostles practiced it and sometimes I think those guys were gluttons for punishment!
I was raised as a protestant and I think that part of my reason for becoming an Orthodox Christian is that it doesn't reject critical thinking or modern science. There is nothing about being a Christian that means one has to reject evolution. Many of the church fathers and mothers were well-educated people. The Bible never says that we have to reject facts in order to be acceptable to God. I really wish that more Christians would just take the time to study what the theory of evolution actually posits instead of just trusting their pastor's cliff notes version of it.
See how the scientifically-illiterate like Revron and -unqualified like Tomsawyer try to make statements about/against evolution when he understands nothing of it. Review Gibbs free energy, weather, the solar system, memetic and genetic algorithms, The Game of Life, emergence, heat engines, supramolecular chemistry, self-assembly, micelles, RNA world.
Bintalshamsa, if you accept evolution, then you cannot take the creation story literally, and cannot apply it to original sin today or to the need for mankind's redeemer. Not that it matters; one of the 12 (yes, 12) commandments was the expiry of sin in a household to be four generations, so nobody can be at fault for those fruit-eating fairies.
If you think you can befit the story to evolution, then you do not know both.
Quite a few posts here utilizing apologetic misunderstandings, already answered by actual science. "Second law of thermodynamics", "no transitional fossils", "dinosaur soft tissue", etc.

Totally fake. Not even a newborn.

No legitimate, sane scientist would “switch” over to Creationism. Creationism has absolutely NO scientific basis whatsoever. Its religion and nothing else.
October 20, 2012 at 9:38pm
Trying to reason with Creationists is like trying to talk sense into a cat. Impossible. I’m frankly embarrassed that so many of the people I share a common political opinion with are so astoundingly ignorant and devoid of scientific understanding.
October 15, 2012 at 1:33pm
AZITDAD, you’re a complete friggin’ MORON. Evolution is not a theory, its fact and the entire scientific establishment supports it. And even 1% of the fossil record is enough to establish it as fact, which goes to show you how firmly grounded in FACT it really is. You, on the other hand, get your “facts” from an ancient text written by ignorant goat herders who has ZERO science. You’re about the last person qualified to even have an opinion on the matter.
October 15, 2012 at 1:27pm
Moron, Nye has a thousand times more intellect than you’ll ever have. Go back to your bible.
October 15, 2012 at 1:26pm
Being an Atheist Conservative makes me somewhat of a loner around here. And I am just appalled at the level of stupidity, immaturity and total scientific ignorance of so many others in here. If you deny evolution that’s fine but keep in mind that you do so out of TOTAL IGNORANCE of the FACTS. All your bible quotes are meaningless superstitious nonsense and have no credibility in trying to refute established fact. No Creationist has any business on any scientific committee whatsoever because Creationism is based in 100% religious superstition.
Watch the video:
Again there is a difference between real evolution and the theory of evolution that claims all life evolved from a single cell. You're falling into the trap of trying to use proven science to validate a theory that it doesn't support. Yes selective breeding will evolve a species to some degree over time. What isn't fact is that species can selectively breed to the point that the species is significantly altered in some major way, or to the point where it actually becomes an entirely differnt animal.
