My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

I am surprised that you don't know that prior to Hitler (up to 1933), Germany was a democracy.
So once Hitler and his party had been defeated, Germany was able to return to its democratic institutions. They were never imposed by the allies.
In Japan, the US were quite prudent in leaving the Emperor Hiro-Hito in place as head of state, instead of judging him as war criminal. The reforms were very superficial and not imposed. Japan always had a liberal audience that came to the fore when the warlords were tried and executed. Japan was allowed to trade military power against economic power, and gain self esteem that way.
so they DID IMPOSE REFORMS ON GERMANY AND JAPAN BY BOMBING AND INVADING THEIR COUNTRIES.

None are so blind as he who will not see. God need not work miracles to convince atheists. Even adversity teaches. He leaves them to live their error knowing they must walk the path of their choice. His ordinary works are self evident to those who can see with the eyes of their souls.

Don't know. My version of God is not the biblical god. An absolute god doesn't belong in a democratic society anymore than an absolute king does. Don't want what science offers either. That framework is too narrow to contain my experience. Too narrow and limited to offer any real solutions to the problems of the world. I envison myself as being part of indivisible godhead or source to which I give individual expression through the actions of my life, but for which no person or group or dogma or book can presume to speak in absolute terms.

Interesting! So you have created god in you own image.

In North America there are roughly 38,000 different churches, cults etc. that believe more or less in the christian god. Apparently there is only one god so someone has it wrong.

Weird huh?

Because we have gotten use to ignoring you now. Until you start actually using logic and reason, you should get use to it.

What you have told (difficult part?) is meaningless. It has no bearing on anything pertaining to myself.

Just how many millions of years was your professor hallucinating? Evolution does take quite a few ....

He did think the machines were made of organic and alive material, right? Of course he did, he thought that they evolved

5.RP:

Maybe it's because you discount any of our comments as not what you think is the only possible reaction to your crap.



Or maybe it's because your postings are devolving into pure dipshittery.

6. Liberty:

That's not true we all laughed at your ignorance and how a child in a first world country with a 5th grade education could do better.

7. Adam:


In your post you said "No Transitional forms were discovered and shall never be discovered, because there is nothing like Transitional Forms in reality."

Yet since Darwin came up with his theory 150 years ago, we have since discovered many transitional fossils. As well as a rich variety of transitional fossils, other sciences have developed so there is now DNA evidence proving our evolution. We also have a better understaning of the biogeographical distribution of species, the anatomy of animals, etc. All of which points to evolution, and not to special creation.

Well, that's what happens when you are so wrong in so many different ways...

Well guys, I have combined all the "fan mail" I got for past 24 hours.

And you can see that hardly any one will pass the criterion of my posting any answers to these posts.

The "Only" worthwhile post where I can say some thing is the "Claim" by Mr. Adam that "After the claim of Darwin 160 years ago, we HAVE (emphasis is mine-MUQ) discovered MANY (emphasis is again mine-MUQ) that PROVE (Again Emphasis is mine-MUQ) that TOE is indeed correct and scientific!!

And new DNA evidence further proves the TOE!!

(So we can say Our Great Charles Darwin, was justified posthumously!! He did not know any thing about DNA, but his genius foresaw that future development).

Just remember those Transitional Life forms which I mentioned in my story… BULLHORSE, HORSE-BULL, HORSE-CYCLO, CYCLO-HORSE etc.

Any broken Jaw bone, a single teeth, collected from here and there separated by hundreds of thousands of years and by thousands of miles in space….they just provide "irrefutable proofs" that this "Semi Scientific, Semi Philosophical " Toe is 100 % scientific!!

I do not know, how much more they will misuse the name of Science before discarding this theory into the heap of imagination at work!!

MUQ, good morning, or good afternoon in your time zone.

The objections to evolution are usually based on religious grounds, not on the facts. The facts are life forms evolve over long periods of time from simple to more complex forms. This is confirmed in the fossil record.

Now turning to fantasy world of the Quran. The author/s knew nothing of this, because their story telling was simply a rehash of the stories from the bible.

Moses is mentioned 136 times in the Quran. The supposed author of Gensis and all those insane laws, is a hero in the Quran. 6 day creation, noah's flood and other myths, are just the campfire stories of one particular tribe of goat herders in ancient history.

We now live in the 21st century. Isnt it time we moved on from myths and accepted scientific explanations?

That is because we are cognizant human beings with the capacity for thought. We would have to be brain dead and cloned sheep to all have the same addled thoughts.

How stupid and twisted can you get stupid moron.

Germany and japanm would never have been bombed and invaded if they had not declared war on their enemies first.

Their defeat was the result of a conflict they had created, and not a reform programme from the allies.

Such stupid prick you are!!!

Not in our lifetimes. I see Muslim women round here dressed in burkas trailing behind their husbands. They seemingly have not moved on from the 7th century. Such sexist attitudes are so ingrained I guess it will take a very long time to change.
