Not so, it is the humanist that claim the morality of the majority that dictates the society's morals. So according to that the cannibalistic practices of some tribes around the world were doing nothing wrong.

Only you could get that confused over such a simple statement.

My, touchy aren't you.

Corruption in science has been demonstrated to you far more than half a dozen times, but you keep defending it, lol.

We have hospitals called “Presbyterian Hospital”,“Methodist Hospital”- it's quite obvious they weren't named after atheists.

So you confirm that atheists don't do much in the way of hospitals or charities.

Thanks for confirming.

<quoted text>I confess. Hell was my creation, not your god's.

KJV wrote, ""does not your god still send people there to suffer for all eternity?" He does cast Lucifer and the rebelling angles into hell. However the Bibles message is how to avoid going to hell."

Is that a "yes" then? I'm taking it as a yes. I may have made hell, but your god sends souls there. He pays me a royalty every time.

KJV wrote, "What is the message science given us from science?"

"The weather is here. Wish you were beautiful."
(Rev 1:18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

I don't think so but nice try! LOL

You do come up with some good ones I'll give you that. LOL

You can't resist calling names can you? It shows your childishness, but go ahead and prove you have no class - we all know it anyway, lol.

Thinking? When will you START thinking? No evidence shows you ever think.

And you don't have much of a memory, since I've already said many times I don't need to defend links on the internet, lol. Each person can decide for themselves, for example, if a link about fraudulent science has merit, or if they want to be like you and defend corrupt science.

It's interesting that you feel such a burning desire to defend science – like it's going to crumble unless you hold it up.

You also enjoy defending fraud, which tells us a lot about your character.

Wrong.

There was six days of creation and a global flood.
There was an Egyptian captivity, exodus and battle of Jericho.

You are okay with the corrupt Ted Haggard?
Did Mr. Haggard repent? I don't know, and neither do you – that's between him and God.

If he did repent, he's been forgiven. If he did not, he will be held accountable.

I don't defend corrupt religious people. Why do atheists defend corrupt scientists? You're okay with that?

You can deny the reality science has made but it won't make it go away. Americans are among the most unhealthy people in the world. Surrounded by technological affluence, we have fancy heart scans that can give us a nice picture of our clogged arteries.
With diabetes reaching epidemic proportions Americans are fatter than they've ever been. Crammed with highly sophisticated scientific equipment, the fourth leading cause of mortality among Americans is infections in our hospitals.
More Americans are strung out on psychoactive drugs than any other country in the world. This practice even has a name, it's called the "the medicalization of unhappiness."
Seventy five percent of our nation’s population breathes unhealthy amounts of air pollution...BUT...our cars are faster, our houses are bigger, and our menus a smorgasbord of cheap unnutritional food designed to titillate even the most fickle of palates.
You make come very strong points. Thanks for your contribution.

Bradley Monton, science philospher and atheist, carefully argues that intelligent design deserves serious consideration as a scientific theory.

Mr. Monton believes students should be taught about intelligent design.

Science points more toward God than toward atheism.

That's the side that makes the most sense.

Arguments by atheists using science as evidence against the existence of God is erroneous and without support.

Atheists need to learn how to understand science.

I like the part that science says before the "Big Bang" there was nothing, no matter, no energy, no space, no time, nothing at all. Just like the Bible says!

Ah, yes, the magic "repent" button

Such a great faith you have. Forget Haggard, he's small potatoes. You can murder a dozen people but as long as you feel bad about it later and ask for forgiveness, you get to stroll into heaven.

Good person who doesn't believe = burn in hell for a million times a billion times a trillion years.

Serial killer who really, really feels bad about it = sitting at the right hand of god.

That's religion for you....

Science found the corruption and corrected it. You can count on Science to do that at some point. Scientists do that because they are interested in truth.

Religion never corrects itself. I guess that is because Religion is not interested in truth. There is no truth in faith.
