Botanical Society of America "The proponents of creationism/intelligent design promote scientific ignorance in the guise of learning. As professional scientists and educators, we strongly assert that such efforts are both misguided and flawed, presenting an incorrect view of science, its understandings, and its processes."

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology The Federation represents 22 professional societies and 84,000 scientists, and its statement FASEB Opposes Using Science Classes to Teach Intelligent Design, Creationism, and other Non-Scientific Beliefs was adopted by the FASEB Board of Directors.

National Association of Biology Teachers "Scientists have firmly established evolution as an important natural process.... Explanations or ways of knowing that invoke metaphysical, non-naturalistic or supernatural mechanisms, whether called “creation science,”“scientific creationism,”“intelligent design theory,”“young earth theory,” or similar designations, are outside the scope of science and therefore are not part of a valid science curriculum."

The National Center for Science Education itself opposes the teaching of intelligent design, acting as a clearinghouse for information regarding efforts to force creationism (including intelligent design) into the classroom.

The NCSE also maintains lists of organizations from around the world that oppose the teaching of creationism, including intelligent design, listing 71 scientific organizations, 23 religious organizations, 43 educational organizations, and 10 civil liberties organizations.

The National Science Teachers Association NSTA is a professional association of 55,000 science teachers and administrators. "We stand with the nation's leading scientific organizations and scientists, including Dr. John Marburger, the president's top science advisor, in stating that intelligent design is not science.…It is simply not fair to present pseudoscience to students in the science classroom."

United States National Academy of Sciences That academy wrote a statement entitled "Science and Creationism: A View from the National Academy of Sciences, Second Edition National Academy of Sciences" which said that "Creationism, Intelligent Design, and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life or of species are not science"

No religious beliefs here. But no reason to make debunking the god hypothesis my goal either. Not sure why the non religious would feel the need to do so.
I would say there is no god hypothesis. even a hypothesis needs to start from some grain of truth, doesn't it? How is a known lie worth even talking about?

One of the biggest fallacy ever propagated by atheists, is that to be a Christian one must know the letter of biblical law, which was directly addressed by the Christ.(Faith)
The rest of the forum is at standstill and here it's on fullspeed...2 pages behind.
I was looking for the reaction by yankee yahoo.

Around 1000 CE thereabouts everybody was even banned from reading it by the church.
And Augustine, said that people did not need to read or even know to read for the real believer would know the content by holy spirit transmission.
And than Paul: just believe and you are saved.
CHEAP...

It's not atheist that have the misconceptions, you could be forgiven for thinking that, but rather all those christians that just stab their fat dirty finger in a book that says BIBLE on the cover, quote at random and out of context and then claim the most stupid prejudice to be true. THE TRUTH as they say usually.

Science does not explore religious theology. Faith is a completely different concept.
Scientific inquiry is about things which can be studied rationally.
See that whats so funny...your really only using half your brain, because the right side deals with intuitional knowledge(right hemisphere of the brain)...in which theology uses both the rational(left hemisphere of the brain) and intuitional to come to rational conclusions.

pretty classic moves by cults. look at the first rule set out in the christian cult: "don't seek knowledge. Just do as you ae told and all will be perfect." ("oh, and give us your money.." "oh, and get otheres incdoctrinate..er saved and get them to gives us their money..")

yeah, cults hate it when their members learn about the religion behind the cult. best way to get them to leave...

hole in teh CMBR...yeah, maybe we bounced off another brane...maybe we didn't. it provides a different cause of the big bang, not a destruction of the theory.
