Don't dictate beliefs

Sep 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Star Press

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

The thousands of divisions in your death cult are all wrong.
Apart from your particular sect.
Since leaving Christianity, I can now see the confusion as what it is. In reality all the 34000 protestant sects are heretics. They all contradict each other and disbelieve basic doctrines.

For example it says in John 6:53 "Jesus said to them,“Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you." This is repeated several times. Yet, speaking as an ex protestant, I can vouch none of them believe this or take it seriously. Their rational side at least acknowledges this to be nonsense, so discard it.

Of ocurse the most rational line is to say that cannibalism and vampirism whether symbolic or literal is ridiculous. And such superstitious medieval nonsense should play no part of the 21st century.

KJV prefers the abracadbra method. You can find it in his superstitions of how every single species of flora and fauna was simply magicked into existence.
I dont know how KJV can account for the fossil record. Maybe Yahweh put those fossils in the ground to deliberate mislead us :)

Because math blows evolution and the Big Bang and spontaneous life generation right out of the water.
Mathematically none of those could have happened.
Yes, I am very familiar with what math is. So please explain to me how those are 'blown out of the water' by math. In particular, if you are computing probabilities, please give detailed reasons for thinking events are independent if you multiply the probabilities. Otherwise, you are simply doing the math incorrectly.

You should take your god filters off before reading science. You made an assumption before even reading the post, and it's showing.

Hi KK.

The last few hours have been very entertaining on the Prove god thread....all because of the pronoun "it".

No, Mr. Sagan, it doesn't quite work that way, lol.
Get real!!!
So many failures in science are not discovered for a very lonnnngggg time; others perhaps never.
Sloppy techniques, fraudulent research......
It would take months of additional research from other scientists to confirm the first groups' results.
Scientists don't want to do the research; they assume the original experiments are “foregone conclusions” and basically just do not invest the time to replicate the experiments.

An article written by someone who's not a scientist which attempts to make assumptions and assertions of a scientist's life. How dishonest.

You did well to see through all that ju-ju and superstition.

It belongs in the minds of the ignorant and gullible and most definitely has no place in the 21st century.

I'm not here to do your bidding. I'm here to point out all the crap science is currently trying to get by with and has pulled in the past!
Lots and lots to show you all.
Here's some successes:

http://www.scripps.edu/about/achievements.htm...

Here are just the first 3:

Addiction, providing evidence that the drug gabapentin affects certain components of the alcohol addiction cycle in the brain, supporting the idea that the medication, which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating seizures and pain, also holds potential for the treatment of alcohol dependence.(Roberto, Koob, Siggins labs, 2008; clinical trial results, Mason lab, 2012)
HIV/AIDS, elucidating the structure of a number of human antibodies that neutralize many different strains of the virus—work that may one day contribute to an HIV vaccine.(Wilson, Burton labs (with Ollmann Saphire), 2001 – 2011).
Multiple sclerosis, developing the first of a new class of highly selective comopunds that effectively suppresses the severity of multiple sclerosis in animal models.(Burris lab, 2011).
“Swine flu,” solving the structure of a key protein from the virus that caused the recent H1N1 influenza epidemic. The structure reveals that the virus shares many features with influenza viruses common in the early 20th century, helping to explain why, in general, older individuals have been less severely affected by the recent outbreak than younger ones.(Wilson lab, 2010)

Note the .edu in the link.

That means it's from an educational institute.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what KJV, Dim, et al think.

They probably pat each other on the back in mutual admiration; knowing that they possess such discerning minds so as not to be fooled by the fossil trail or the numerous other pieces of evidence that Jehovah has used to trick men of reason into accepting.

In 2006, Anil Potti, Joseph Nevins and their cohorts in fraudulent science at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, falsely reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that they could forecast the progression of lung cancer using expression arrays, and determine which chemotherapy would work best for lung, breast or ovarian cancer.

However, serious flaws in their work were later discovered by the MD Anderson Cancer Centre in Houston, led by Keith Baggerly and Kevin Coombes.

It isn't known how many patients may have suffered as a result of Potti and Nevins' bogus work.

Right - you're not a scientist, so you are dishonest and unqualified to comment on it.

Atheism had a surge of public interest from 2004 - 2007, but the interest wasn't sustainable. No significant amount of new adherents to atheism was gained in the United States.

In 2008, USA Today reported the failure of the atheistic publicity campaign.

Additionally, public interest in evolutionism is now declining and global atheism is shrinking in adherents.

Rogeberg writes about the prevalence of errors, fraud and cheating in science, and barriers faced in fighting the problems, often with high personal costs to whistle blowers, and the negative attitude towards criticism within scientific communities.

Mr. Rogeberg gives examples of how uncooperative science is at dealing with fraud and cheating.

Oh, Khatru, how you adore fraudulent science.

I like the good old legal correction when government watchdogs catch corrupt scientists and throw them into the slammer instead of waiting on science to “self correct”- there isn't time to wait 40 years for that. Too many lives have already damaged by fraudulent science.
