Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

That is not true. A great deal of headway has been made, both from the chemical point of view and from the life side of the equation. We know that life as it exists now (based on DNA and protein) is likely to not be structured the way that the earliest life was (probably based on RNA, perhaps with minimal proteins). We know many more chemical reactions that lead to the types of chemicals required for life and how they form larger structures. We know that life is much more diverse than what we knew 50 years ago and that it is possible in much more extreme environments that we ever thought before. We know how the life that now exists is related and we have picked apart the different types of metabolism to see their similarities, differences, and hereditary links. We know more about the environment of the early earth and are learning more each year.

Are there many challenges? Of course. But progress has been made.

A larger universe with varying environments with the required molecules of life fairly common is a much more favorable situation for abiogenesis than the universe imagined 50 years ago.

You did not read it, did you?

It was an artificial cell: the cell was **dead**(no DNA).

It was re-animated, brought to **life**, by inserting 100% man-made DNA.

No need for god or "intelligent design" to make a dead cell, alive again.

You lose.

Read it and WEEP, you ignorant creotard.
Dr. Venter copied the DNA from one species of bacteria and inserted it into another. The second bacteria made all the proteins and organelles in the so-called “synthetic cell,” by following the specifications implicit in the structure of the inserted DNA. With out the using the other bacteria to make proteins and organelles, he would have nothing alive or living.

He has not created life, only mimicked it.

What they have created is an organism with a synthesized natural genome. But it doesn’t represent the creation of life from scratch or the creation of a new life form.

All are quotes from scientists in the article

Not a frikkin' clue-- he is just COPY-PASTING from some equally ignorant website...

Apparently he knows better than you do in examining how you use "ignorant", which isn't necessarily an insult, though you use it as such. Of course we all know how well you like to make up new definitions for words.

These atheists worship quantom mechanics. Other than that, if they cannot detect it by one or more of the five senses, it cannot legally exist in their minds. God knows this, He just goes ahead and exists anyway.

Again, you try to lie about atheism being a cult, when it is simple disbelief.

Lincoln is a conscious liar for the cult of creationism. We atheists need to teach you how to be honest and not lie.

Liars with no proof of god, can't back up their own stupidity and so attack established science (the same science being used & proven inside the creationist troll's computers)

Now theists, don't ask me to explain to you how this works, because all the information is out there. Your lazinesss cannot be helped.
