The enemy of what? Ignorance? I have no problem with opposing that.

Or were you using the rather silly threat of Pascal's Wager again?

You have a point.

I'm not using the Pascal's Wager, that's just for amusement.

A great post that totally refutes the 'Creation science' authors.

“Do typical working scientists engage in the following activities when advancing new ideas?

Do they pitch them to naive audiences while complaining they can’t get a fair hearing in the science community? Do they form institutes that spend millions of dollars to crank out propaganda pushing their idea and criticizing the scientific community? Do they issue talking points to grass-roots organizations and political groups to be argued in churches and local newspapers around the country? Do they publish books on their ideas in the popular press and claim they are peer-reviewed?”

You should read it creationists.

lol...you're the one that stated... "..see it is AFTER the trauma that causes the 'death'.." The brain/body continues to suffer trauma while the person is 'unconscious' or as is also stated 'clinically dead' yet later come to or are revived. It's DURING the trauma that people have NDE.
No. The illogical thinking is that theism is the center point for why people having NDE see the dead who appear to be quite live. If theism was the center point for NDE, than people all over this world should be having specific visions of an afterlife that deals with the religion they were influenced by during their life. And logically visions of dead ancestors has nothing to do with actual Christian teachings. Dead ancestors should be the last thing to be seen in a NDE. One should actually be having visions of all the things one has read/heard of concerning that religion.
Back to my point, if we are from stellar matter and not the creation of some being, our DNA should, key word should have some sort of an imprint of our past beginnings in our memories that should be seen in parts and pieces in visions/dreams/NDEs, not some fanciful thought/hope of an after life.
yes, after the trauma that caused the death. not trauma after death...

your entire thesis is based on nonesense, just like your cult...

what you are confused with is that freethinkers actually make their own purpose and meaning in their lives. you religious cult members have your life's meaning and purpose handed to you like a drone worker bee...and it is based on proven lies...

i prefer my purposeful life to your lie filled life...

So why is it that Moses had to lay down the rules of what animals were OK to eat and which weren't to the Israelites, but everyone else gets to eat bacon? Why doesn't the laws of Leviticus 11 apply to Christians?

Interesting to note hat Politix is running a poll right now asking "Is evolutionary science a threat to Christianity?"

It's been almost 90% No.

Yes, but read the comments. An amazing number of the noes are from creatards that do not believe the theory of evolution.

As for the “energy” nothing much happens, it follows the law of the conservation of energy. Maybe an analogy will help. When your car is running, there's an interesting flow of energy of a variety of types through the engine, electrical system, and so forth. When the car is off, most of that flow ceases. The energy itself doesn't disappear or do anything surprising or hard to explain. The thermal energy in the hot engine gradually leaks into the environment, etc.

but lacking any evidence for a soul or any afterlife. that would be nothing for that dead person.
