Don't dictate beliefs

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

Have you noticed how long it takes the scientific community to discover their flaws, and the damage that occurs before fraudulent scientific papers eventually get retracted? Some are never corrected. The peer review system has failed us.

Some fraud is never retracted even after it's found. When will science retract errors in textbooks?

My faith is in the Bible.
Your faith is in fraudulent science.
Your religion has been around for nearly 2000 years and it still hasn't fixed Leviticus 14 .... it's a real hoot!!

To our atheist scientists in the forum, here's a question:
Is prostate cancer linked to the XMRV virus? Scientists told us it was, but unfortunately their papers were retracted since they were false.
This was reported in September, 2012. The link is below.

No copyrighted material was reproduced in this post.
And again, it was science that did the correction and the retraction, not religion.

"Where's the mystery? Moral behavior is conducive to survival and happiness. Why wouldn't it exist?"
Because if indeed evolution was real even though you may believe you can't have one with out the other. The odds of the top dog on the planet exhibiting moral traits are very high against it and not normal in nature.
The human eye
Human morals
The arts
Music
Writing
This is not evolution it's creation.
The human eye - Already debunked, irreducible complexity is a canard.
Human morals - Easily explained by the theory of evolution.
The arts - Other animals exhibit art as well, fail canard.
Music - Other animals sing, another fail canard.
Writing - Hmm ... I think you may have one ... wait ...

Writing is a result of the combination of logic centers in our minds, it is simply an expression of communication. Our communication methods are more elaborate than other animals, but other animals do communicate as well. The logic traits that resulted in things like writing and structured linguistics are easily explained through the theory of evolution as species with the most complex communications systems could coordinate attacks and defenses much more easily, being capable of transmitting more complex concepts offers a tactical advantage over either prey or predator.

Did you notice it was the scientific community that discovered the flaws in the work? No! Of course you didn't.
That is the business of science, correcting itself when it is wrong. That's how and why it has advanced our society out of the Dark Ages that Christianity created.
When does religion correct itself?... Never! Christianity is as wrong as it was when Christians butchered Hypatia of Alexandria.
Nicely put!

Nearly every post Dim makes serves to demonstrate how science will always weed out the frauds.

Religion is incapable of doing that, which explains why Christianity consists of thousands of different cults and sects, none of which can be shown to be frauds.

Deep down, Dim must wish his religion was as effective as science.

The astronomy program "Night Sky" will show that there was a planetary conjunction back about 2k years ago which is postulated to explain the "star".

Forgetting the argument that an infallible book would document "planet" instead of "star", this still doe not in any way explain how any celestial object can delineate any specific spot on the planet. Even a jet at 30,000 feet can't do that.

All the time!!! Every time older documents are found they make the appropriate changes to the Bible. It's usually pretty miner changes but they do keep the Bible updated with the oldest know writings. And no one goes to jail for fraud. LOL
Really? Who are "they"?

Where are the corrections made to the Bible that incorporate the Acts of Paul and Thecla? Just think how you believers can thrill with excitement at the part where Thecla leaps into a moat full of man-eating seals and how Jehovah sends down a thunderbolt to kill all the seals.

Where's the Gospel of Thomas? It was found in 1945 and no insertions, deletions or amendments have been made to the Bible.

What about the Gospel of Peter? That was found in 1886. Where are the changes to the Bible made by these people you refer to as "they"?

You would have thought that they (whoever they may be) would have changed the Bible to accomodate Peter. After all, Peter's gospel provides the only eye-witness account of Jesus emerging from the tomb.

You believers love your eye-witness accounts so why hasn't the Bible been changed?

Peter tells us that Jesus emerged from the tomb with two angels and was followed by a talking cross. Once in the open, Jesus and the angels grew to a height of thousands of feet until their heads were lost in the heavens. According to the account, this was witnessed by a Roman centurion and his soldiers (usually eighty men) and also the Jewish Elders.

Why isn't this in the Bible?

Perhaps it's because your claims of amendments being made every time new documents are found is just another of your many lies.

Why do you lie?

You know it makes the baby Jesus weep.

And apparently it fails to take into account the earth's rotation.

No objects, other than our geostationary satellites, stay over one spot on the earth. Even Polaris, our north star, describes a small circle as it's not precisely over the pole.

Even answersingenesis recognizes these facts and explains them away by claiming that god can suspend the laws of nature anytime he wants and that's what he did for the star of Bethlehem.

Funny that he hasn't suspended any of the laws of nature lately. It would solve so much conflict.

It was very funny to type.

Can no one see any humor around here?

You know this does not have be a life and death discussion. Enjoy the debates but have fun with them.
After all you don't really know who you're talking to and many play roll with many as I am told they are called socks.

Now did they call them Socks as in Sock puppets or because they always come as a pair but maybe because of the ability for socks to jump to other universes while in the dryer?

Oh I could not really use my tits to type
As least I've never attempted it. You bring up such interesting conversation.

I will ponder the tit typing but I highly doubt I'll try it.

Have a good day

The below link is from Michael Ruse, atheist, authot, and philsopher of biology at Florida State University. In his conclusion, he makes the point of the damage atheists are doing in fighting to keep creationism out of public schools. He goes on to explain that the first ammendment doesn't ban teaching science in schools – but if atheists get it established that Creationism is SCIENCE rather than religion, then they are creating a problem for themselves which will work against them.
Also, he explains that if teaching that God exists is a religion, then it's also a religion to teach God does not exist.
He sees P.Z. Myers as a “disaster”, lol.
He also says that “The God Delusion”(book) made him “ashamed” to be an atheist.
Thank you, Mr. Ruse.
