No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

Common Lies Spread By Atheists

When atheists speak they are almost incapable of not telling lies.

If atheists are not intentionally telling lies then this means that they are just so stupid, idiotic, gullible, and ignorant that they foolishly believe anything they hear in the low-life atheist media.

No one really knows why the atheist media intentionally spreads lies.

continued:

The only time you’ll hear positive things about religion is in actual historical documentations and journals, not in the low-life liberal atheist media.

It’s time for me expose many common lies that have been spread by atheists.

Lie: Historians believe that “The Dark Ages” was a terrible time of superstition that held back the growth of science

Truth: Modern historians don’t believe in the “Dark Ages” as portrayed in the liberal atheist media and the “Dark Ages” is what lead up to the scientific revolution.

Lie: During The “Dark Ages” people were killed for doing science

Truth: No one was killed specifically for doing science in the history of the scientific revolution. People were executed for being heretics and for political reasons, but not for doing science.

Lie: The Church prohibited autopsies and dissections

Truth: Church leaders ordered autopsies and they were carried out regularly from at least the 13th Century.

Lie: Most Science is due to the ancient Greeks

Truth: The Greeks never did science, they did pseudoscience and mathematics, the scientific revolution began when people stopped following Greek philosophers.

Lie: During the middle ages the Church taught that the Earth was flat

Truth: The vast majority of medieval Christian scholars believed that the Earth was spherical and round.

Lie: The Church and religion had prevented methodological naturalism and encouraged belief in magic and the “supernatural”

Truth: The Church was the main cause of methodological naturalism

Lie: Religion teaches people not to seek knowledge

Truth: The Church and religion had encouraged reason and to seek knowledge.

Lie: Giordano Bruno was executed for doing science
Lie: Giordano Bruno’s contributions were significant to the scientific revolution

Truth: Giordano Bruno was not executed for doing science and Bruno made no significant contributions that are relevant to the scientific revolution.

Lie: Galileo was the main person who solidified the heliocentric model

Truth: Newton was the one who solidified the heliocentric model, with Galileo’s contributions alone it would be difficult to distinguish geoheliocentric and heliocentric models.

[“My suggestion to atheists: Stop doing science, go home and focus on food, water, and shelter since everything that lead up to the scientific revolution would’ve been viewed as philosophical nonsense and a waste of time to you. Who can be as disgusting as an atheist? They’ve always threatened scientific and technological progress from the very beginning.”]

MISCONDUCT IN SCIENCE:
DO SCIENTISTS NEED A PROFESSIONAL CODE OF ETHICS?
by: Vincent N. Hamner

“Discussions of misconduct in science have become prevalent in the literature. Fundamental texts regarding this subject have been published in recent years. Many of these case studies are primarily of historical interest. Within the past few decades however, many more instances have come under scrutiny. The ease by which information is exchanged today has allowed for the general public to become increasingly aware of supposedly "isolated instances" of misconduct in science.

A literature search using the key words "SCIENCE & FRAUD" on an INFOTRAC CD-ROM-based data system yielded over two-hundred and thirty citations regarding these topics during the years from 1988 to 1991. Typical citations in the popular literature were available for news-magazines and newspapers such as Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and U.S. News & World Report. Commonly cited science related publications included Science, Nature, New Scientist, Science News, Omni, Discover, and The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Business related publications such as Forbes, Fortune Magazine, The Economist, and Business Week were cited as well. It would seem that discussions of "SCIENCE & FRAUD" in contemporary periodicals have become quite fashionable.

Polarimetry, as applied to chemical analysis, deals with the determination of the extent and direction that an optically active chemical species will rotate incident linearly polarized light. Although well developed for physical sensing, the technique of fiber optic polarimetry for chemical sensing remains in its infancy. This thesis is concerned with the design and development of an optical fiber polarimeter which measures the optical rotation of linearly polarized light that occurs in a sensing region between two multi-mode optical fibers. Over short distances, the polarization preserving capabilities of large-core multi-mode optical fibers were investigated. Polarimetric analyses were performed using sucrose and quinine hydrochloride. The instrument has a resolution of O.O8·, and is an excellent platform for an LC or FIA detector. Its more intriguing future lies in evanescent field sensor applications and studies of chiroptical surface interactions.

Ahhh.

Well, gee, we all have to put up with a few minor irritations. We have lots of spam in this forum - the red devil - for example, I skip all of his or her posts / spam.

And then, we have you for more spam....

But I have good news for you, Poly - I read ALL your posts.

Coming from me, that is a REAL compliment.

Which is why the spambot needs to be reported and removed. He actually posts spoof stories and goth chick costume jewelry ads which are trying to be funny but he takes them seriously!

He has to rely on copy and paste spam because he has nothing to say but he lacks the IQ to even properly comprehend his own spam!

It would be one thing if he posted one to three max of this nonsense but instead he gets obnoxious posting and reposting 20-30 spam posts at a time.

Come on gang time to flush this turd already.

<quoted text>I would have liked a clearer denunciation of stoning people to death, and perhaps an explanation of why it had been considered moral in the past, but OK - I'll accept that. I will have to update my argument to reflect only things that Jesus DIDN'T correct.

Have you seen Monty Python on stoning for blasphemy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =MIaORknS1DkXX
I think the point was made on stoning by how Jesus handled it. His answer had he simply said no more stoning would have left questions instead he answered with wisdom.

"Have you seen Monty Python on stoning for blasphemy? "

Yes and loved it.

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,“Avenge the people of Israel on the Midianites. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.” So Moses spoke to the people, saying,“Arm men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian to execute the Lord's vengeance on Midian. You shall send a thousand from each of the tribes of Israel to the war.” So there were provided, out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand from each tribe, twelve thousand armed for war....
Does this mean that you're not a moral relativist?
