Not when I respond to you. Actually to the contrary. It's actually kind of fun for me to expose your ignorance and bigotry. And all the while you don't even realize it, as this post demonstrates.
My speech with most is with respect, but for me, that respect should be mutual, or respect from me is not earned. So my responses to you will be very different. It will be mostly for fun.

Where did that number come from? With that mentality, over half of everyone we know, including family would have been incarcerated. Uhhhh I don't think so. Source please.

<quoted text>When Darwin came up with his theory it was so sound, the Church feared it would debunk their myths. Most people at that time got their news from their church. The Church of England propagated the myth that Darwin claimed we came from apes to discourage the flock from reading it. It worked so well, it is still used as an excuse today. He didn't say it rained apes one day. Again read the book. Darwin claims apes and humans evolved from the same subspecies. DNA tests have shown this to be the case. This theory is much easier for one to believe than the idea we all came from two people. If that were the case we would all be committing incest, which is against your religion.
Listen proganda hatred spewer Fido number whatever you are-

I have my own theory, based upon OTHER theories-and it's much more quantum and cambrian like.

So spare me the little grade school/junior high levels of "neeneener projectionism", because that kind of stupid just automatically dumps you into my DUHbin..do not recycle, just toss to the trashcans of ignorance.

But I will give you two points for at least finally removing your fingers out of one ear of denial for a moment long enough to to ADMIT-the CHURCHES and clergies of this world have LONG time been, institutions of education!

Then let the realization sink in that by definition, fully half of those religie types must be even dumber than that.

First, Arkansas has a law against Atheist holding office, second there are many republicans that have stated in the past that blacks are not human and most wealthy christians look down on blacks and Spanish people (and you know it!) as for gay marriage being a stepping stone, is that the same argument against mixed race marriage? Personally I do not understand why any one would care one way or another about gay marriage as it has no effect on them. Of course some people do get off on fantasizing about what others do in private..........
I am shocked, I expect more intelligent post from you but lately you seam to have dumbed down and only reply negatively to others. What happened?
Let me guess, Foxnews or Gretchen Carlson's nice legs.

Yes, magical thinking. If you believe in an invisible sky entity that grants everlasting life then you are engaging in magical thinking. Theism = magic. The opposite of natural is supernatural. Magic.

You already said that evidence is not an important factor. Without evidence, there is only faith. Faith, by nature, is based on nothing. That's why it has never been a fruitful way of thinking. You can have faith all day long but when you want to plow a field you need a real thing.

So, regarding the witnesses to the golden plates, did any of them literally see the plates? Up close? Touch them? Where are the plates now?

Ok, so the internet is literally LOADED with LDS apologists desperately trying to argue the validity of these witnesses. You can't Google this stuff without getting dozens and dozens of Mormon websites. Very few people outside the LDS even cares about the topic. Most don't even know about it. The only reason I know about it is because a lot of my favorite podcasts are from former LDS members and this is something they know a lot about.

For my money this is really the crux of it:

1) Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. That's sort of the essence of Occam's Razor, and I think it is a very good standard. So if I said "I ate Fruit Loops for breakfast" you could assume I'm telling the truth. It's not a very weird claim to make. But if I said "Aliens fed me Fruit Loops for breakfast" suddenly you're going to need a LOT of evidence to believe me.

2) The claims of Joseph Smith and many of the early LDS church members are extraordinary. Hell, having an angel visit you and lead you to some treasure is by itself a claim that is going to require a metric f*ckton of evidence for me to buy it. Let alone all the other sorcery and magic junk that goes along with it. So for me to buy that Smith had these golden plates he got from an Angel is going to take a lot more than the testimony of a few witnesses.

3) Eyewitness testimony is among the worst evidence you can have. Human memory and perception is notoriously fallible. People do not remember things very accurately. Consider this article on how we twist and mangle memory due to social pressures:

http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/10/how...

There are many other reasons to reject the witnesses as reliable sources. When you look at the history of the LDS it is like the history of Bigfoot. Believers claim to have seen him or at least strongly believe in him, but he's always just out of reach. Never quite in focus.

Same with Smith's miracle church. There just isn't anything to go by except what they wrote down. And for pete's sake we can write anything we want.

You can believe it all you want. I don't care. But if we're going to debate it, then show me the evidence strong enough to support your extraordinary claims. Otherwise it's just something you believe and something I do not.

Sure, the Catholic Church was the leading institution of education during the Middle Ages in the Western world. If you wanted to learn, you could become a monk and spend most of your time learning. There were monks going into the East and introducing people to Western ideas and advances.

But that does not mean God did it. Nor does it mean religion makes you smart. It means the Catholic Church was the only power great enough to be able to offer that kind of space for learning. And at the time they had no reason to think that learning about reality via early quasi-science would damage faith. It wasn't until the 16 or 17th centuries when science started to really get going that the Church kinda figured out what was happening. Unrestricted critical thinking leads almost inevitably to the erosion of faith.

Because faith is antithetical to critical thinking. They do not go together very well. They can exist in the same mind, but they don't function simultaneously. To have faith, you cannot be critical. To be critical means to not have faith.

And by the way, the only people on the planet who denounce evolution are Creationists. And they are, to the man, stupid.

Yeah. I understand. After all people with faith in a creator aren't even human. They don't deserve respect, or even life. How dare anyone think differently than you. Wouldn't the world be better off if everyone believed and acted like you? Yeah, I can see that utopia right now. Religies are so intolerant of others beliefs. Not like you ... Or something like that.

No there's nothing special about it. You're talking about the wrong religion. About as wrong as me accusing you of believing in reincarnation.
