Oh yeah: you're also a proven sociopathological LIAR as I'm about to show.
I checked on Newton and Planck and of course Einstein and they were all theistic. Indeed Newton and Planck were considered eminent theologians of their times.
"Planck was very tolerant towards alternative views and religions.[21] In a lecture on 1937 entitled "Religion und Naturwissenschaft" he suggested the importance of these symbols and rituals related directly with a believer's ability to worship God, but that one must be mindful that the symbols provide an imperfect illustration of divinity. He criticized atheism for being focused on the derision of such symbols, while at the same time warned of the over-estimation of the importance of such symbols by believers.[22]
Max Planck said "All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter" in 1944, indicating that he believed in some kind of God"

Religious views
Occult studies
Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727)[1] was, as considered by others within his own lifetime, an insightful and erudite theologian.[2][3][4] He wrote many works that would now be classified as occult studies and religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible.[5]
Newton’s conception of the physical world provided a stable model of the natural world that would reinforce stability and harmony in the civic world. Newton saw a monotheistic God as the masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation."
KEPLER: again YOU'RE LYING. Kepler was a highly religious man.
"All of Kepler's writings and letters displayed deep religious convictions. He held that Scripture used the common expressions of mankind when it spoke about mundane things as opposed to spiritual mattes. Hence, he perceived the Bible to be a spiritual and not a scientific guide. He held reason to be above authority in matters of natural philosophy, while authority (that is, church and Scripture) ruled in matters of religion. Beneath it all, he saw himself as a priset of nature whose discoveries glorified the name of God.
Firmly believing that God created the universe, Kepler sought to discover how it was set in motion. "I wanted to become a theologian," he wrote. "For a long time I was restless. Now, however, behold how through my effort God is being celebrated in astronomy."
So which of those scientists proved that god was anything more than a silly story?

None of them? Oh, that's what I thought.
The fact that a very competent scientist has a personal belief in something he was indoctrinated into from birth, does nothing to prove that the god story is true or that a god exists. Sorry to break it to you, but if you think about it, the fact that these brilliant thinkers, some of the best of our time, couldn't do ANYTHING to prove that your little, weeny, god was real is a testament to the fact that god is simply a silly story with zero basis in reality. LOL!!! Sucks to be you!!

So you are saying that physicians such as Kepler, Galileo, Pascal, Boyle, Leibniz, Newton, Priestley, Faraday, Babbage, Planck and of course Einstein were useless at physics, Honey you live in a world that would be a very different place if not for those (and more) people. You really are pathetic and you deliberate ignorance is actually astounding. Just because you are clueless and want to see physics on the scrap heap because it f*cks with your wet dreams of god does not mean that real people think like you.
And I see you revel in that other christian pastime, kicking cripples and mocking disability. Well done, this is a perfect example of why I am no longer christian, driven out by godbothering morons like you who did not want to understand disability because it detracts from their “made in their perfect gods image” dillusion. You sick moron
What a load of bollocks. You were proposing to speak for all atheist’s and you know f*ck all about atheism other than atheist don’t think in the same goddidit terms as you and therefore you must bury them in hatred. But of course when a an atheist mansions ONE intelligent theists you go into waffle and lying mode. For your information according to the American academy of sciences about 8% of scientist are theist. There you go you could actually learn something here but don’t worry, I wont hold my breath what it sinks into that biblical quagmire you call a brain
How sweet, you missed the part where I let out that I have a BS (four-year degree in a Science), And you lept to the conclusion that I discount the opinions of scientists because some support the position of athiests. Thankfully, you capped it all off with more juvenile insults and childish name calling to verify that you have little else to bolster your less-than-valuable argument...I'm soooo impressed.

Wrong, I replied to the wording of your post, the post in which you stated,

“theist's area of expertise isn't physics any more than yours is spelling”

and the fact that you presumed to misinterpret my post with

“Actually, you're proposing to speak for ALL Christians or just the ones you've read about?”

You are of course perfectly entitled to lie about what I wrote on a public thread but then that’s just you worshipping your satan god of liars and no more than can be expected.

I of course didn’t mention your mocking of disability so think yourself lucky that your christianity was not dragged through the mud on that score.

Oh and most science degrees take 3 years or 7 years, which is your that takes 4 years? There is no such thing as a degree in science, degrees are much more selective in their content to be indicated as “a degree in science

Or can we assume you are again LYING?

Are your timelines the ones that claim the world was made in 6 days 5999 years ago (6000 next October)?. I have personally seen evidence of homo sapiens from 38,000 years ago and I know there is considerably more history and archaeological evidence to prove that your god timeline is utter BS.
What soul? Please show me none, or documented evidence of one. The soul is a human concept of faith born of the ability for some people to think a little but not to think to a conclusion based on actual facts.
The fact is that it is you belief that all abortion is bad, that does not make it bad, it just makes it your belief.
I am not arguing with your somewhat modified stance of saving life, that is also my view, however that does not give you (or me) the right to dictate what is right and wrong to a third person in spite of what the law says.
Well then perhaps you should not have offered the polls in Ell Passo as an example of you stance on the subject, you know it makes sense.
The babble itself does not explicitly condemn abortion, oh there plenty of interpretations but interpretations are not actually the word in the babble, it is simply interpretation. However even if the babble did explicitly ban abortion that would be no reason for it to come into law because it discriminates against non christians.
And so we get back to the law…
I heard a theologian a little while ago say that the world is as old as science needs it to be, I thought that to be humorous.

No- I'm noticing how ignorant you are not to know that a BS is short for "Bachelor of Science" and mine happened to take four years to accomplish(right in that 3-7 years window you mentioned). Stick to what you think you know...oh wait... you DID think you thought you knew. My post was correct as written, it just refuted YOUR post so well that my reasoning flew right over your head.

Best I can recall, last time i did so, you responded with a dictionary version of the definition- one that suited you. With all the name calling and juvenile insults piled onto Christians by you self-rightious athiests, it's humorous that you cannot abide one little word that aptly describes your obvious persona, yep, kinda funny...

Obviously you still haven't learned what that word means. LOL!!! Priceless. It's sad when you call someone a word that you don't know the meaning of. Not surprising, but sad. I wasn't expecting any more than what you posted.

I n-e-v-e-r said that, and i dare you to prove I did. My minor in college was geology- I know a litte about geological evidence and do not dispute it. Apparently you like to stereotype- does that make YOU a candidate,hmmmm?

Well, "BS" has more than one meaning, and we get a lot of people on these threads spouting plenty of BS.

I even think some of them have a B.S. in BS....maybe they got it from MSU?(That's Making Stuff Up.)
