Because, there is no such thing as a 'religiously educated' person. A person may know about theology, but about the divine? Nah. Religion is the very enemy of education, it is the very enemy of critical thinking
Think of it this way. Go research the formation of the solar system. Now, go look at your posts to us. Your religion made you say some pretty stupid things back there. The earth was created before the sun? Really?
That is the point. The religiously indoctrinated often (not always) make some very stupid points. You have made them, TSI have made them. Dave has made them, etc. But think about the bigger picture. Look at the past. How many people were executed, for the sime belief that the earth was not created as per Genesis?How many people had dragged "god" into a discussion, to promote a whole host of violations against people? Think of it. Abortion. Gun control. Homosexual marriage. Slavery. Apartheid. The Holocaust.
Religion contributes nothing. Dawkins is clever enough to see that
Ok then, word games it is.

A person educated in theology. How bout that instead?

Dawkins isn't educated in theology and has no place debating it - except of course for that huge paycheck he gets.

Christine wrote "spoilt child"......
Yes well. As you know, Christine has problems with spelling however Hiding was able to understand my mistake and saw the humour unlike numb nuts christian cripple kickers like you who threatens people he does not like with violence and delights in mocking disability

BTW. You have still not answered to whether your children or your preacher would think it funny if you got them in your sights

Sigh.
How was the sun formed, RR? Have you ever cared to Google the origin of the sun and earth and check their ages?
Are you aware that the sun is older than the earth?
Now let me guess. You are going to be 'skeptical' of the plethora of evidence for this fact, yet still do mental acrobatics to believe in your 2,000 year old account written by simpletons?
Yes, I've googled it, I've researched it, I've read about it, I even had a pop-up book that had planets and everything.

I can't buy into the absolute guesswork that goes into the formation of the earth & sun. I don't buy it.

I was asking what you think if you are under the belief consciousness is totally a product of physical construction.

You would have a foreign body that you have to take drugs for inserted in your life and mental processes.

So far, I haven't seen you provide any interesting or complicated theological positions. That could be my ignorance speaking - or my not-remembering... Wait...maybe you gave one about how all deities are really one, and each religion offers a different way to know the deity/deities? If so, that's pretty sophisticated of you.
I don't necessarily believe that, but it's a very interesting hypothesis. I can't imagine that God would give a shit what you call Him, as long as you're worshipping Him...

<quoted text>Specious argument. If I was a christian and wanted to know more about the christian interpretation of god, it would indeed make the most sense to go to a christian pastor. That's not the issue though. It's not like scientists are offering us a competing interpretation of god - our basic viewpoint is "god exists? Cool, prove it."
Why don't you take the word of a highly intelligent muslim apologist?
Regarding his profession, yes.

If you wanted to know more about Islam, would you ask a biologist to fill you in?

In turn, if you wanted to know more about, say malaria, would you ask a Muslim?

Ok, first, wikipedia is not science. Second, please read what you're quoting.
The above is a guess as to the source of the environmental state of the early earth - keep in mind, we're discussing whether science has a good picture of what the early earth was like, not why it was like that.
You are confusing the two when you present a quote like the above as if it refutes my statement, including confusing wikipedia with scientific knowledge.
<quoted text>
Uh...yes. So? Where's the issue here?
<quoted text>
Yup. Again, what's the issue?
<quoted text>
Oh, your problem is that you believe science is limited by your lack of knowledge.
That's the argument fallacy of "personal incredulity." Once again, RR, we are not limited by your limitations.
Just go read about science - how it forms models, where its evidence comes from. I can't help you if you won't get beyond your own lack of knowledge here. I'm sorry, but scientific understanding is not limited by you, or your ignorance in these fields.
(at the same time, my inability to understand quantum mechanics doesn't slow the discipline down one bit)
Well you're no help.

Yet you are the one claiming that you can see light contrary to all the scientific evidence.

And your are the one claiming that light existed before dark contrary to all the scientific evidence.

And you are the one claiming that the universe is ordered contrary to all the scientific papers to prove you wrong.

All that happens is you ignore the science and continue with the same old hateful christian circular BS.

And of course you are the one that keeps sloping off to lick her wounds when the facts get to heavy for your childish mind and then returning with replenished bile only to slope off again next time the facts get to heavy for your childish mind.

With Hitchens you're making the mistake that I get accused of so often - that a university degree makes for expertise (he had a degree, just not in theology). The reality is that the best thinkers in religion debated him (and lost). He quite clearly was an expert in Christianity (and Islam). No one would have debated with him if he wasn't producing very good argument and writing on the subjects.
With Dawkins, I agree with you. I found his book simplistic and preaching to the choir. However, I haven't seen it successfully refuted yet (although, to be honest, one person has pointed to me to inaccuracies in it - or misquotes, I can't recall).
I was in Oxford when Dawkins' book came out. With serendipity, I found a table full of PhD theologian students - what better, I though! So I engaged them - please tell me how Dawkins is wrong, i asked.
Sorry, RR, not a single one of them could produce an argument that I could not refute in seconds. I was left thinking that the entire field of theology must be parasitic and worthless. If you can find me a good theological discussion, by all means, share it.
You would ignorantly refute it just like Dawkins & Hitchens. You say they won debates? I guess that's a matter of prospective. In my view, they made themselves look like fools.

I mean, look what happens to this poor girl.

<quoted text>There is no such thing as an effective deterrent. Again.
Once people are in jail, it is to the detriment of society as a whole if we "lock them up and throw away the key." People do better when they have something to do - both on the "inside" and once they get out. Basic comforts - TV, "tasty" food (don't know where you got that idea), and AC go a long way towards keeping people content and therefore peaceful.
Would you rather have a bored, hungry, uncomfortably hot prisoner or one that is more or less content? Which one do you think would be more agreeable and less prone to violence/disobedience? Obviously, these basic comforts should be supplemented with mandatory self improvement, which will lead to some prisoners doing well on the outside.
Again - no one is "allowing" porn and drugs in prison. It's just impossible to keep them out. This demonstrates the futility of the drug war better than anything else in my mind - if we can't keep drugs out of prison, how in the world are we going to remove them from society? Some prisons do allow conjugal visits, but only to prisoners who have behaved exceptionally well, and I see nothing wrong with that. Sex is a great stress reliever, and low stress prisoners are a good thing.
I would RATHER our prisons be uncomfortable as humanely possible. Prisons can't be cozy (not to you or I, but the mind of the criminal thinks differently).

It is NOT impossible the keep porn & drugs out of prison, what are you talking about?

Why are you misrepresenting what I say?

Is it because you are a liar?

Of course we know you are a liar but really. in the name of your god itís patheticÖ there is no need to be so fooking ignorantly obvious about it.

I say that E=MC^2 proves that no god as depicted in kjv revelation 19:6 can exist in this universe at the same time as you

Thatís your ďomnipotentĒ god in this universe, is says nothing about deities who are not claimed as omnipotent.

Do the math numb nuts, that is not science, that is basic multiplication that you were supposed to learn in grade school

Saying "we allow them to have drugs" is the same as saying that the police allow the general population to have drugs.
Bullshit.

The general population is not under police control, the prison population is.

Have you ever entered a prison?

The Old Testament is full of stories of men arguing with God, often to get a better deal. He seems to have a penchant for it.

Nowadays you have Topix atheists seizing upon crossed T's and dotted I's and grammar as the basis for their desire to argue. They don't have to be right, they just like to argue.

Of course they believe this is constructive in the end as they are making things more perfect for mankind.

Could be they just have hormonal issues or hemorrhoids.
