Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Yadda, yadda.
Ken Miller holds himself out as a modern-day, up-to-date expert.
He writes articles and gives speeches criticizing Intelligent Design.
And used Haeckel's discredited recapitulation theory in the textbook he wrote.
Provide some sort of link.

Just because you say it, doesn't make it so.

I already provided the excerpt from Miller's book. You should believe his book about his book.

If you are going to denigrate science for "making sh*t up", why don't you denigrate religion, which makes everything up?{SNIP}
This isn't a science vs religion debate.
Practically everything you said. Why bother going into details.
No please, go into details. Which parts of this are BS:

That doesn't excuse science lying to the population and making shit up.

Most people have heard of or been taught the idea that the human embryo goes through various evolutionary stages, such as having gills like a fish, a tail like a monkey, etc., during the first few months that it develops in the womb.

The idea has not only been presented to generations of biology/medical students as fact, but has also been used for many years to persuasively justify abortion.

But that's a lie. Haeckel manufactured the data. He fraudulently changed drawings made by other scientists of human and dog embryos.

You've heard of her then. I first read about Jeanne Calment in the Guiness Book of Records.
Apparently she met Van Gogh when she was young.
She remembers when the rock was invented.

If you can demonstrate otherwise, please do so.
I have demonstrated several times and several times you have ignored the demonstration so here we go again

Despite the truncated and cherry picked propaganda that you out forward he rebuilt the church infrastructure and opened 25000 churches, that he was on the committee to elect a new head of the church that under his rule monasteries and seminaries etc were re-opened.

Now tell be what have you done in comparison to further your god?

At least they didn't fake pictures like Dr. Kettlewell.
You know,..peppered moth fake pictures,...proving Darwin,....you can still see them in the science textbooks for high school kids,...
There's a reason for that.

The photos may have been staged for demonstration purposes, but the actual studies have never been challenged.

Let's get this straight.
You say that Stalin's state efforts to restore the church is evidence he was a Christian.
But Stalin's state efforts to make the state atheist, even surpassing the atheist state of Lenin, and destroying the church, is not evidence for his atheism.
On the latter, you say that's "mixing the state up with the man", which is a mistake.
On the former, you do the same thing, and there it is legitimate.
You're out of your league, Chrissy.
I suggest you discuss things with Blue Buffoon, who thinks dinosaurs had no DNA.
Which came first and was the chicken last?

You claim indigence in knowing his history and yet you need to cherry pick one section from a particularly traumatic time of his life and you do not have the intelligence to comprehend the corruption of the church that caused his actions. While ignoring the vast percentage of his life that proves you are a moron.

Wrong it was not a mistake, you are mixing up nationalism with atheism

And there you go again, lying to big yourself up. Such a common trait and so obviously pathetic that I would think even someone of your stupidity and deliberate ignorance would realise that lying in the face of facts does not earn you extra god points but just makes you look even more stupid than you are.
