And yet you give up that which you could keep (the ability to think) in order to gain something that is imaginary.

And you lie to yourself that you are wise to do so.

<quoted text>Please don't make things up about what I've said.

I've never 'claimed to be a Christian'. I have claimed to be a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian. How would you know a Christian anyway, you can't even distinguish between success in love or work.

Now, I posted an article about the Big Bang indicating the existence of God. All you have been able to do is mount (poorly so) a bigoted, hateful troll attack against me along with a vain attempt to change the subject.

Do you understand that rather than putting my faith on the line, that article cuts your claim of 'rational atheist' off at the knees and confirms your status as a 'rational atheist' oxymoron???

SMirk.
That article was an act of desperation.

Nothing more.

Buck and the Discovery Institute maintain that Intelligent Design is secular science. Yesterday, Casey Luskin, spokesperson for the Discovery Institute, wrote an opinion piece in which he says criticism of ID in school classrooms must be balanced with "traditional religion".

biologist Jerry Coyne makes a good point...

Quote

What’s especially telling about Luskin’s letter is his tacit admission that ID, if it’s to be criticized in any class, must be balanced with “traditional religion”. If ID isn’t religious, and is, as the Discovery Institute claims, purely science, and if its scientific conclusions point to the existence of a designer with intelligence, why on Earth would that have anything to do with “traditional religion”? I believe Michael Behe said that the designer could have been a space alien. Worship of aliens is not “traditional religion.”

End quote

--Why Evolution is True Blog

Yes, why would criticism of a secular scientific theory have to be balanced by traditional religion? Would criticism of the theory of the luminiferous ether have to be balanced by religion? Would the phlogiston theory of fire?

The fact that Luskin thinks dissing ID must be balanced by religion...well...says it all. Luskin really thinks ID is religion. He just isn't honest enough to say so in public.

You can read Dr. Coyne's post, along with Luskin's entire opinion piece, here...

But you certainly share in many of them.
You've made that amply clear over time.

You are Phelpsian in many, many respects.

If I roll a die, I KNOW that it will roll a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. That is not omniscience. Neither is what you describe. Knowing all the possibilities is not the same as know what will happen.


God has already seen you roll that die and He's seen every possible outcome. That is omniscience.
Besides, the Bible never mentions omniscience as a trait of this God of yours.{SNIP}

I'm skeptical of science.
For example, when faster than light neutrinos were reported, I was skeptical of that. Turned out to be justified skepticism. I'm skeptical of the new finding about detecting the signature of gravity waves from the Big Bang, as are all of the scientists who will be attempting to verify the findings. I'm skeptical of the accuracy of the machine I use and I'm skeptical of the accuracy of the measuring instruments that I use to verify the accuracy of the machines I use.
I could go on, but you are a waste of time, so that will have to do.
Question everything.
I question your honesty.
