One sentence compared to a whole life in which he was raised in the christian tradition, tipped for the priesthood. He destroyed the corruption of the Russian church imposed by the Tsars and after his rise to power was instrumental in the rebuilding of that church and it’s institutions.

Honey, I really would not mind betting you have forsworn you god at some time in your life, particularly when you dropped the soap in the prison showers. Or when your son was screaming “daddy stop it” loud enough to register in your thick skull while you were butt fooking him.

<quoted text>
Blind faith would be believing that the Genesis creation story is factual because the bible says so. Believing an article in Scientific American is justified. The difference is their track records, which is evidence. Also, the two types of belief are different in their degree. Faith in the bible is not only not justified by evidence (blind), it is absolute. The trust in Scientific American is tentative, supported by reports in other sources, and would disappear if their standards fell.
You probably should stop comparing the two. It never world out well for religious faith.
=========
Notice that another prophecy of science was just confirmed - the second one this decade (the Higgs boson being the first).
When you find something like gravity waves exactly where you expected to find them with devices designed to look precisely where they were predicted by theory to be found, you have evidence that takes you FAR beyond blind faith.
“Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science?”- Carl Sagan
Oh.

"All hail Science"?

Nah, not for me. Science is wrong far more often that it is right.

But it's nice to know that you too take scientific magazine articles on blind faith.

I didn't even know who they were until you told me. At first, I thought you were talking about an Individual Retirement Account.
Yes you did, after you were told who they are and what they did you excused there actions to a storm of protest form several other posters that caused you to chicken out

But hey we all know you are a lying T\/\/AT who can’t get it up for a woman.

<quoted text>I haven't said anything even remotely close to it should stay hidden because its a church or priest. In fact I have said the opposite repeatedly and said any abuse in the church should be exposed and I want to see a bigger effort to expose all abuse and not just the abuse some feel is "newsworthy" because to the victims, its terrible no matter where it happened.
Maybe on the 4th try you can figure out a way to make this a disagreement? Sheesh
I am not disagreeing with you, I am questioning your excuse of the church on the grounds that it does not happen much.

You've done experiments on the big bang?
*sigh*

"A team of astrophysicists has announced a sighting of gravitational waves – formed in the first trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second after the universe as we know it blinked into existence.
The breakthrough discovery throws enormous weight behind the famous Big Bang theory. The boffins must be expecting a call from the Nobel Prize panel in Sweden."

Didn't pick up on the sarcasm I guess
Yes I know. That was my point. That despite your contention the UK and its people are so much more focused on stopping child abuse and don't get caught up in simply cranking out stupid "news stories" to appease the masses, I don't believe that to be the case
And I had to delete to other part because its too hard to copy quotes on my phone but you made a distinction between tabloids and more respectable journalism. So what? The tabloids wouldn't exist if there were not people in the UK that wanted to read them. So much for the idea the people in the UK care more about stopping child abuse.
Your nationalism and arrogance concerning an issue that any decent human being anywhere wants to see come to an end was just silly. But if you want to continue with the "my country cares more than yours does" attitude I guess suit yourself
Did I make that claim? I think you are misrepresent or deliberately misinterpreting my post, I claimed that the British media have different perspective than the US media, the British public have a different perspective than the US public. If you want to take exception with that then go for it.

So what? Because… You want to get you “news” from tabloids then that’s fine but don’t try arguing semantics based on tabloid hack journalism.

Oh wow here we go, you cannot have a discussion without resorting to personality, how sad.

I agree. And funny how a certain funny-mentalist focused only on itself. Totally ignored a link I posted about a young girl molested by a now convicted murderer.
I really do not understand why he/she is taking the funnies.

The only thing that comes to mind is that he/she objects to the “church” being associated with paedophilia.

My view is if they can’t do the time then they should not do the crime.

Yeah, that's great.

But DS said he's done experiments himself. Is DS a scientific panel?

Oh, is that the same committee that gave Obama a piece price?

Spare me.
I sat in court and watched a judge award child support to an ex that was equal to the guy's monthly pay plus 1 dollar.
It went to the state court of appeals and they upheld it 4 to 1.
I saw a Judge go straight up a farmer's ass because his pants were dirty because he worked for a living.
Our judicial officers are crooks and leaches that sponge off the taxpayers for years, then continue to sponge for retirement. I am backed up on this opinion by the few honest lawyers that have watched the system work for decades.
And you can always appeal? Right?. Newsflash Counselor - the appeals sit in a file for 12 months, then a clerk reads them, and the judges stamp them in agreement with the trial court. There is no appeal process.
Not in my world.

Stalin was a Christian. The pope is an atheist. E=MC2 proves God can't be omnipotent.

You have a very vivid imagination, for a lame.
