Dear Lord........Thank God....... Spoken from the lips of an Athiest to God's Ear!!! Your argument that you are a true Athiest is not very convincing!

The basis for my beliefs are important to me and you know what they are.
What continues to puzzle me is'Why are the Atheists so concerned about why and what I believe in.
You don't believe in God,you claim my beliefs are based on magic or delusions,yet you keep enquiring..
Some have stated that they do so because of Bible study rules and other excuses...That has nothing to do with the reasons for my faith...
Obviously,you/they are looking for something else,which you/they are unable to explain.
I think I understand why..
If you want an answer,then I have to understand the basis for your question?
Based on what I understand to be your need,I will answer accordingly as best I can
I'm not concerned with what you believe in. Granted, I think it's as ignorant as a burlap bag full of sheep urine, but as I've stated before, I'm concerned with idjits perpetuating mythology as fact and "educating" children with absurdities such as man is 6,000 years old and that 4,500 years ago the entirety of the Earth's land masses were submerged.
In a previous post you said that you'd given up self righteousness a long time ago.
Mind your 9th commandment.

How obliviously stupid does one have to be to harp on a time worn statement of sarcastic irony and simultaneously allege that they understand the Bible? Too dull to be embarrassed - your life must be blissful, indeed.

Why are you addressing that to me? I KNOW LOL in a Suit is STUPID and now I know you are blissfully STUPID too! If all you have in your "battle armour" of wits is to make an ironic statement; what exactly have you proven other then your ultimate stupidity in the dicussion!

Since I've never stated any of what you've mentioned as a basis for my faith,It is a poor excuse indeed,in order to keep inquiring.
But,I do not have a problem with that.
When you have a question,be sure to define the basis for your question,then,once I know thee basis,I will do my best to provide the answer to that which you are seeking.
Let us not be deceptive in our search,otherwise,you may not get the answer you are so diligently seeking...
Self deception,to my knowledge,never provides the right answer..

So you think this evolutionary biologist is claiming that science is wrong? Are you that insane?

QuoteEvolutionist Richard Lewontin in The New York Review,

January, 1997, page 31:
We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of the failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so-stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.

That is what he said,which has caused you to get very defensive and make some wild allegations,which are in fact,baseless.
What is your interpretation of what he meant and if I quoted him out of context as you erroneously charged,what did he mean?

I thought I already covered this. In fact, I did. The quote comes from a review of a Carl Sagan book (a favorite of mine). The original quote is longer, the Creationist version is always snipped and cropped just to get this juicy bit.

*sigh*

He is trying to make a subtle point about science. Sometimes it suggests things that are not easily acceptable to common sense. I gave you some examples in previous posts.

When he says that it won't let a "divine foot in the door" he is not trying to say that it SHOULD. He is pointing out a basic fact of science. That is, the supernatural is NOT PART OF IT. Yet at the same time some of its claims SEEM almost supernatural.

It is a subtle, powerful point.

Creationists take it out of context and never offer the full quote, which I previously linked to.

It is really common for Creationists to do that sort of thing. To be so Christian, they lie quite a bit. You might want to vet these quotes that you find at Answers In Genesis or wherever. Run them through Google and see where they really come from and what they really mean.
So true
