Science is a gateway drug to atheism. Once you start asking questions and looking for proof of assertions, forming hypotheses based on evidence, gathering information and evidence and all those other activities that make up "science", you are well on your way to "thinking". Thinking, especially rational thinking, is the mortal enemy of superstition and religion. Even Martin Luther knew this.That's why he said: "Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but -- more frequently than not -- struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God." and "Reason must be deluded, blinded, and destroyed. Faith must trample underfoot all reason, sense, and understanding, and whatever it sees must be put out of sight and ... know nothing but the word of God."

Why do so many religitards get the chimp versus common ancestor thing so wrong?

It reduces their apparent IQ by about 20 points.

You are ill informed on the science, essentially the reality is we have all the information available so you have no excuses why you would be so devoid of it.

There was an excellent site with easy to follow explanation of evolution you may want to read up. I could only find it on archive but lucky it is somewhat available. Take a moment and read.

As for "global warming" the fact is climate change happens its happening and hiding your head between your legs will not change that.

siro is a troll who posts about black magic as leon. The Topix link a couple of posts above is worth a look if you find empty threats to be amusing.

Good I can live with that, now just make certain you don't use anything generated by science, you can start by turning your computer off.

Oh and don't ever go to the doctor again.

The Eighteenth Century brought the Engightenment to Western culture. Siro's been busy trying to close the curtains to keep the light out ever since.

Have to disagree with you on that one. Religion is stupid on steroids. Or, to continue the drug metaphor, religion is to stupid what Fentanyl is to morphine - 50 to 100 times more potent.

My, the amused socialist thinker crowd is here in flat force. You bunch politically motivated thieves fear faith with absolute values so you can always deal in the abstract. Your hero Karl ( confiscating, not work a day in my life ) Marx wrote to his teacher and sugar daddy Joseph Engels that atheism would be the Communist religion. Yes, it takes much more faith to believe that all life evolved from water running down rocks, and much more political science fabrication and suppression of data to maintain your farce. Billions and billions of years, once upon a time in a land far, far away. Or better yet, Richie Dawkins lead off line "Assume..........".
