Like Mot says, those who pretended to follow where science led rather than where their bias led, determined that Mendel’s strict adherence to the Scientific Method was a fault in his science, making his discovery irrelevant (Sarc. off).
Such pomposity and hubris (often shown by our “scientists” here on The Blaze) has put the science of Genetics forever 50 years behind.
When will they learn from such costly mistakes?

You guys are so good at debate and explaining complex things in simple terms like “flat out lie” and claiming “you don’t know what you are talking about but of course I do.”
Please don’t you guys go into teaching – you seem to lack the temperament, skills and talents to do that profession any justice.
May 18, 2015 at 1:04am
And Spanky and Huff are prepared to explain how the Cambrian Explosion violates their “long, long time” statements yet still they mouth that proven lie.
May 18, 2015 at 12:58am
Huff you say: “I happen to be a libertarian at heart and acknowledge the rights of an individual to believe what ever it is he wants. But that doesn’t mean I have to respect his beliefs or keep my mouth shut if I think he is wrong.”
Of course you don’t have to – but you should,
Since you don’t know for sure you are right about there being no God, how do you know his believers are “wrong”?
May 18, 2015 at 12:38am
Mot says: “The theory of evolution: It explains how living things changed over a long time, and how they have come to be the way they are.”
Well okay as long as you can totally disregard the Cambrian Explosion or else explain how those things changed in such a short time.

justangry, no one was speaking about altruism, why would you bring that up as though it was somehow equivalent to love?
Apparently you do not love your wife and child as much as any believer, if they can love theirs unconditionally while you do not even understand it.
May 17, 2015 at 11:23pm
Spanky, then there is your problem, you are unable to read and comprehend.
Why would the Jews wish to revise their Bible just to appease Christians, as you advise? Doesn’t make sense. That would be like asking them to revise “Let us create man in our image.” Although it enabled John to point to earlier scriptures to point out that Jesus was there, the Jews remain true to scripture, even when it causes some problems for those don’t understand.
Of course two of the portions I guided you to were New Testament scriptures, not OT verses, but apparently you missed that.
And not only that, but one has nothing to do with prophesies that have already come true – and you missed that also.
If you truly read them, please explain why you describe 1 Thessalonians as “too vague.”
And if you truly read them, where is the sense in your statement: “How about some predictions that didn’t occur until the 20th or 21st Centuries?” One of those prophesies has yet to come true. Do you know which one?
May 17, 2015 at 6:21pm
The original turn on words that I heard was “No God, no peace. Know God, know peace.” People without God would argue this as well, but both are based on scripture that is saying there is something extra about both His peace and His love.
Surely we’ve all heard about the peace from God that passes all understanding. See, it does.

USMC-E4, first and honestly, thanks for your service (Blinky is too afraid to defend our freedoms with actions, just uses them to spew hate).
Second, you say: “I’m with you, we’ll never convince the christer’s, unfortunately. To them, if you don’t talk to a cloud man, you can’t have love in your heart… Silly.
I’ll overlook your attempt to be insulting and point out that according to scripture, believers have the honor of being considered children of God, having been legally adopted into his family by their confession of belief in Jesus. Their belief also earns them the right to go into the Holy of Holies to speak directly to him, not to a “cloud man.”
I’m fairly certain you don’t know how close to the truth is your derogatory term, “cloud man,” but perhaps you could amaze me.
As to your thoughts on love; true it is a human emotion common to most (but not all). But the love Christ modeled transcends emotional love. It is an unconditional gift of his nature that cannot be earned nor taken away. He even loves his enemies, but at the same time is just, and there are still consequences to our actions or lack thereof.
 May 17, 2015 at 5:27pm
Justangry says: “I love my wife and child as much as any believer.”
Later in this same thread he proclaims “To love unconditionally makes your values meaningless.”
So, in actuality, his second statement nullifies his first. Apparently he does not understand “unconditional love” as a believer knows it.
Although he was innocent, illegally arrested, falsely charged, horribly, horribly beaten and near death from loss of blood as he was being murdered, the unconditional love believers learn to model was expressed by Christ on the cross as he breathed his last – “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.” And then he died for the sins of the world. We are healed by his stripes – by his unconditional love.
justangry calls this a sacrifice of meaningless values. I suppose it is just that bereft of values for most unbelievers.
So, justangry, if you love your wife as much as any believer, why is your love for her “conditional”? If she doesn’t fix dinner tonight, will you love her less? If your child does wrong, do you love your child less?
Maybe you are just angry.

You just gotta love how Blinky uses the royal “we” (as in his claim about the “…abundance of evidence WE have for evolution…”), as though he has contributed in any way to said “abundance” other than cleaning out beakers as a Lab Assistant. Behe advanced science way more than Blinky ever will, because Behe was an actual scientist (Blinky is a wanna-be).
[-1] May 17, 2015 at 4:35pm
News Flash, Blinky believes censorship of ideas and indoctrination in government schools will prevent the possibility that critical thinkers might have rightful cause to question his “god.”
Welcome to communist Russia and communist China.
Even if Comrade Blinky had his way (which is totally un-American), smart people will still find the truth.
May 17, 2015 at 4:19pm
Blinky, your post, translated, is: “Demeaning CRAP.”
May 17, 2015 at 4:14pm
Hi Spanky, my daughter was home schooled. In her mid-teens, she always scored a grade above average on Iowa Tests, so we had her take the SAT at 16 and she scored very high. Based on that, we had her apply to colleges, and when accepted she skipped her Senior year to matriculate. Based on her initial grades, she was awarded a scholarship to a well respected private college. She graduated summa *** laude with two majors (the Blaze won’t allow c u m to be shown where those three asterisks appear).
Since you disparage home schooling, pray tell us your class ranking and honors awarded to you upon your culmination of public school and public college. Can you even spell “summa *** laude” without looking at it already spelled out for you?
Perhaps you call other people childish names like “idiot” because you aren’t as smart or mature as you think you are.
In frustration, Blinky claims “You cannot reason somebody out of a position they were never reasoned in to…” (He meant “into”.)
He does not understand because he can’t “reason.” He does not give anyone, but himself and like-thinkers, any credit for having not only intellect and education, but the RIGHT to their own opinions, likes, dislikes and beliefs. Why can he not learn to keep his fat yap shut when he comes to a gunfight armed with a knife?
He attempts to insult anyone that thinks differently than he, proclaiming all of them idiots, morons, or what ever infantile name he can vomit at the time.
He always thinks he is more intelligent, better educated, has a superior understanding of just about everything, is always “right,” and because of his superiority has the right to talk down to, insult and defame all who his extreme bigotry (especially towards Christ followers) FALSELY identifies as being beneath him (please see definition of “narcissism”).
One only has to read a few pages of his comments to feel the rage and hatred seething in this “man.” The pathetic thing is that one cannot reason with him to help him see who he really is. But that’s his “crap” to bear.

Spanky writes: “St. Peter: ” Sorry son, we cant’t let you in.”
At 11:21am on 5/15 (in a thread above), Spanked chides TheGrtdcptn: “Grt; What is an ” Evoluntionist”? It helps that you learn to spell properly when trying to make a point…or, as the Brits would say; ” a pint”.”
Then in another thread he says to THERAPTURCOMES: “Prof. Dawkins and you and I will be long gone before that ever happens ” Now is the time to only believe the truth that is backed up and confirmesd by real evidence, not myths”.” Creed of Spanky ( 1:!)
Yup, that’s his creed, and here he “confirmesd” it.
Now he spells “can’t” as “cant’t
Spanked, what was your point again?
[-1] May 17, 2015 at 2:04pm
Here’s why you should not trust Blinky. He poses as one well steeped in science, and as such he should be proficient in reading “scientific” papers. He makes a “truth” claim based on a paper that includes the following:
“If it were possible to obtain good data on unplanned teen pregnancy or pregnancy by “immature” teen parents, we would use it, but we did not find such data available.”
“At the level of states in the U.S., conservative religious beliefs predict teen birth rates highly and significantly; the correlation remains high and significant after controlling for income and ESTIMATED rates of abortion.”
“Our findings by themselves, of course, DO NOT permit causal inferences. There COULD BE unstudied confounding variables that account for the correlations we report. But if we may SPECULATE on the most probable explanation, drawing on the other research cited above: we CONJECTURE that conservative religious communities in the U.S. are more successful in discouraging use of contraception among their teen community members than in discouraging sexual intercourse itself.”
Truth Blinky? Truth is you are falsely presenting the methodology and conclusions of a study having many faults and speculations as one having positively concluded what you wanted it to say (so strong is your bigotry and so weak your scientific acumen).
Did this study in any way make the claim “Atheists have a lower teen pregnancy rate than Christians do”? No. There I’ve proven your lie!
[-1] May 17, 2015 at 2:02pm
Blinky speaks truth for once when he states his creed (as Spanky did in another thread above), when he writes of himself “I can’t actually debate him or prove anything, so I’ll just say he’s wrong because I’m arrogant enough to think my opinion is that of a gods and therefore cannot be wrong.”
When Blinky is wrong, he will argue stupidly and declare he won. He really believes it.
On May 1, 2015, at 2:36 PM (as usual while on his employer’s dime) Blinky the liar posted the ridiculous claim “Amusingly, atheists have a lower teen pregnancy rate than Christians do”.
Then he gave his usual cheeky, demeaning comments “Wow, that took what, 10 seconds to find on google,” and “Okay, proved it, now what?”
I checked out his “proof” claims and found no such “proof,” so I replied: (See the next post for the rest of my as-yet-unanswered-reply to Blinky:)
May 17, 2015 at 1:32pm
Spanky, please read Psalm+22.
Then read Isaiah 53.
Then read John 19:23-38.
And finally read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
The first two prophesies above came true when the third took place. The 4th foretells a future event, not to be confused with the “second coming” because in this prophesy Jesus does not set foot on earth (as was prophesied by Acts 1:9-10). For this reason, some see them as different events. Time will tell.
