I see Marky is still flapping his lips and blathering. Looks like he is still pushing the same old nonsense.  (Oct 11, 2016 | post #156303)

Hi IANS. I'm being a bad boy and posting on Topix again. Got bored. Hope I don't get hooked again.  (Oct 11, 2016 | post #156302)

"Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think"

Oops. Just realized I started with the first page when I meant to just read the last page. So I have responded to very old posts. Oy vey. My bad.  (Oct 11, 2016 | post #48579)

Evolution Debate

"Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think"

BS, pure and simple. This is nothing but an attempt to haul science down to the same level as religion. Yes, science and religion attempt to answer questions, but their methodology is entirely different. Religion claims it KNOWS the answers, due to revelations of some sort. Science says it has tentative answers, based on the present evidence...and is willing to change its mind based on new evidence. Science knows its answers are tentative and incomplete, which is why science continues to study and search for answers.  (Oct 11, 2016 | post #48578)

"Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think"

The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they've found it." — Terry Pratchett I love that quote. And you have the position of most atheists wrong. Most atheists withhold judgement until there is evidence to justify belief. Most atheists do not say, "There is no god." Rather, they say, "There is no evidence of any god." A subtle but important difference. (There are, I will admit, some atheists that hold the hard position and make the positive claim that definitely no gods exist.) As Matt Dillahunty is fond of saying, it is the difference between "innocent " and "not guilty". "Innocent " means that one definitely did not do the crime. "Not guilty" means that there is insufficient evidence to show one did the crime. Most atheists hold the position that there is insufficient evidence for the existence of a god.  (Oct 11, 2016 | post #48577)

In the past, the Trump has stated that global warming is a hoax. "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. " --Donald Trump But now that it is threatening one of his premier properties, he is changing his tune... "The New York billionaire is applying for permission to erect a coastal protection works to prevent erosion at his seaside golf resort, Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, in County Clare. "A permit application for the wall, filed by Trump International Golf Links Ireland and reviewed by POLITICO, explicitly cites global warming and its consequences—incre ased erosion due to rising sea levels and extreme weather this century—as a chief justification for building the structure…"  (May 24, 2016 | post #40234)

No, Mr. Clueless, what he said was "to call it one more theory" is ignorant. He did not say to call it a theory is ignorant. The reason "to call it one more theory" is ignorant is there is NO other theory concerning the diversification of life. The theory of evolution is it. All the other things you want to call a theory are at best a hypothesis (not a theory) and most are nothing more than wishful thinking. You have failed on two things here...1) you have failed to comprehend what was written (big surprise there), and 2) you have failed to understand the science (again, big surprise).  (May 20, 2016 | post #38691)

Your reading comprehension isn't very good. Read that again. "...to deny it or class it as one more theory, is to embrace ignorance."  (May 20, 2016 | post #38631)

Frankly I wouldn't believe Buck if he said the sky was blue. I would require verification from reliable sources. Buck has no credibility IMHO. BTW...you should talk to someone about your obsession with the gay. It's not healthy.  (May 20, 2016 | post #38628)

Sorry, but you fail again. For one, there is no proof that Jesus existed, just hearsay stories. For two, even if Jesus existed, that does not constitute proof that you God exists. Homer may have existed. Is that proof that Zeus exists? Tolkien existed. Is that proof that Iluvatar exists? Lovecraft existed. Is that proof that Cthulhu exists?  (May 20, 2016 | post #38610)
