Don't dictate beliefs

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

Everybody wake up
If your living with your eyes closed
See the man with a bomb in his hand
Everybody wake up

Oh baby it's not easy sometimes
They build these walls ever higher and hide behind them
Seems an odd way to try and make things right
Oh I feel like I go crazy sometimes

Our finest hour arrives
See the pig dressed in his finest fine
The believers stand behind him and smile
As the day lights up with fire

Everybody wake up
If your living with your eyes closed
See the man with a bomb in his hand
Everybody wake up

I Remember the words of the misguided fool
Do unto others as you'd have them do
Not an eye for an eye is the golden rule
Just leaves a room full of blind men

And the finest hour arrives
See the pig dressed in his finest fine
Don't believe him leave and stand behind him and smile
As the day lights up with fire

Everybody wake up [etc]....

Everybody wake up
if your living with your eyes closed
see the man with a bomb in his hand
Everybody wake up

<quoted text>Dark matter? Did some one say Dark matter? Khatru you're clueless as to what's going on in dark matter.

"The Soudan Underground Laboratory.( In one of Minnesota's deepest Iron mines ) is a general-purpose science facility, which provides the deep underground environment required by a variety of sensitive experiments. The Lab currently hosts two large projects: MINOS, which investigates elusive and poorly understood particles called neutrinos; and CDMS II, a "dark-matter" experiment which may help explain how galaxies are formed. Both were built for basic research - exploring how the universe works - but similar efforts have spawned practical (if unforeseen) byproducts, including the world-wide web and even advanced medical imaging techniques."

"The Gopher (University of Minnesota) ecosystem is often regarded as the effective predecessor of the World Wide Web."
Dark MatterS.

With an "s".

It's the name on a Science Channel series on scientific flubs and frauds.

Have you ever watched programs about biblical flubs and frauds?

And...this is old news.

Ever seen pictures?

It's a huge pit of ultra pure water that looks like its lined with thousand of floodlights. But they're not light. They're light detectors.

In the pitch blackness deep in that cave, they hope to catch a photon or two released in the extremely rare event that a neutrino interacts with a water molecule.

Did you know that in just the area of your thumbnail, there are billions of neutrinos passing through you every second? That's every square centimeter of your body, every second of every day.

Title of book:

“The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions “

Author:
David Berlinski
Mr. Berlinski has a PhD from Princeton University. He's also written:“A Tour of the Calculus”,“The Advent of the Algorithm”, and “Newton’s Gift.”

Mr. Berlinski writes about the rise of “Millitant Atheism”. He writs that Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens have created a “stream” of best sellers against religious belief and how their works are also influencing the scientific community. Mr. Berlinski writes of how they are creating problems for science when they do this, and goes on to explore the many limitations of science.

Mr. Berlinski is very knowledgeable in science and how he approaches the subject.

Read the commentary acclaim and great reviews that follow.

A critic of the theory of evolution, Berlinski is theologically agnostic and refuses to theorize about the origins of life.[1] He has written on philosophy, mathematics and a variety of fictional works."

Oh what other people on here?
Maybe with different view points?
How could be?

Batty wants to speak for everyone but fails and then adds more lies. What? Don't tell me an atheist lying? How could that be!

I haven't ? Really. Well the fact is you cannot take anyone's blind word on these boards so to say any more on the subject would be futile.

USMC.

In early 1968, General Vo Nguyen Giap, the man in charge of North Vietnam's army, believed it was time for the North Vietnamese to make a major surprise attack on South Vietnam. After coordinating with the Viet Cong and moving troops and supplies into position, the Communists made a diversionary attack against the American base at Khe Sanh on January 21, 1968.

On January 30, 1968, the real Tet Offensive began. Early in the morning, North Vietnamese troops and Viet Cong forces attacked both towns and cities in South Vietnam, breaking the ceasefire that had been called for the Vietnamese holiday of Tet (the lunar new year).

Humanists are so confused..........facepsalm
Dude it's just chemical reaction in one mutated brain vs another if evolution is correct. You have to agree with that if you believe in evolution.

"Whence morality? That is a question which has troubled philosophers since their subject was invented. Two and a half millennia of debate have, however, failed to produce a satisfactory answer. So now it is time for someone else to have a go…Perhaps [biologists] can eventually do what philosophers have never managed, and explain moral behavior in an intellectually satisfying way."

Maybe EmpAtheist can have a go at it.

It does show the inability to debate and up hold you side of the debate with new and interesting fact like Derek post do.

e.g.

Derek : quotes Scientific America
