DEBATING A DUMB CREATIONIST:

Some months ago, I witnessed a heated debate between a scientist and a Muslim creationist . They were debating the question of origins of the universe. The creationist thought he had a valid point when he said that causation ended with Allah since Allah constituted the final cause. On hearing this naive assertion, the scientist and I burst out laughing. The scientist told the creationist that where causation is concerned, there existed no divide between cause and effect with the cause itself translating into the effect. The creationist was under the impression that cause and effect are independent entities. LOL. I interjected and remarked that the effect is nothing else but the cause in partial or complete manifestation and that the effect should be at least as great as the cause in terms of information content. Besides, energy/matter can neither be created nor destroyed in both the unmanifest or manifest phases with the movement simply being from subtle to gross and vice-versa. The debate ended and what a laugh the scientist and I had after the dumb creationist left. On this thread there are many dumb Jewish, Muslims and Christian creationists.

Irony -- an enthusiastic supporter of New Age mysticism openly mocking the believers in religion.

If O Henry had a baby with Alanis Morisette, they would name it that very idea.

Only you could answer that.

I forgot a fourth criteria. There has to be a bit of hero worship going on as well.

Meet the Edward Snowden truthers

Some think he's a CIA plant, others say he's a useful idiot. But they all agree: Something stinks to high heaven!

http://www.salon.com/2013/06/19/here_come_the...

"...What’s surprising about the Snowden theories is that one might think he’d be a sympathetic figure to people deeply skeptical of government power. But instead of holding him up as hero (or even a traitor), some are intent on labeling him a co-conspirator...."

Like if an ordinary and adult person expresses his thoughts about politic, literature, science, math, religion etc, but in the other side there are 11-15 years kids acting like if they are adults. That person would find their thoughts to be childish, poor, pathetic and low in reasoning for the most parts.
The same feelings that person has talking with them kids are more or less the same of a Mensa talking with ordinary people.
Well, in that case, I'm all for them keeping to themselves.

Many would be considered socially awkward anyway so they would probably want to be among their own kind - the socially inept.

You could be their leader.

Would you like that?

I never said I don't trust Wikipedia. The issue was another thing.
The footnoted and sourced are needed just to know whether or not that particular sentence is genuine. But the source doesn't assure you the sentence is true.
And this is valid not just for Wikipedia but to all encyclopedias and books.
So what and whom do you trust?

Multiple sources is the way to go IMHO.

What say you?

HughBe--- No doubt in your world it is like you being WHITE. In my world there is a difference between you being white which is a function of GENES while your homosexual ways have nothing to do GENES. Instead it has to do with a CORRUPTED mind.
That sounds ugly and hateful. Is that they way you are?

I never said it had to do with genes but it might. Experts disagree but it is clearly not a choice, except maybe in prison but then it is not who they are but simply what they are doing at the time. As in "any old port in a storm."

These words were written by men you fool.

Former---I am speaking of the specific sins of gay people.
HughBe--- Every sin is a sin. The sin of homosexuality SHALL always be a sin. Your fellows can call it acts of righteousness if they want to but it shall always be a sin.
Judgmental, small-minded words from a 3rd world idiot.

All due respect of course.
HughBe wrote:
Former---Gay people do not make the choice to be gay.
HughBe--- Prove your LIE. Cite the scientific evidence that says that homosexuality is traced to a gene. Have you ever heard about diabetes? Can it be traced to genes?
Homosexuality is not a disease anymore than heterosexuality is.

Dummy.

Former---The same god who created you, correct?
HughBe--- No god created me.
Former--Again, do you not believe that god created man?
HughBe--- NO
You said above that he did.

If not, who did. Your mom?
