It's rather odd that you say atheism is an absence of ideology then give an ideology for atheists in the next paragraph. Atheists don't do anything. Atheists only don't do God, otherwise, an atheist can be against individual freedom and personal responsibility if they want to.  (Jan 23, 2011 | post #3)

Evolution Debate

78 Degrees

So, those bacteria that live in the ocean near steam vents are quite happy with temperatures of hundreds of degrees. I guess that means that if our earth's air temperature were hundreds of degrees, bacteria would find evidence of god in that. I never have understood how people take fine tuning arguments as proof of the existence of gods.  (Oct 17, 2010 | post #2)

Rather interesting that it seems you are more moral than the God you believe in. How ironic is that?  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #1457)

Read my last post. I came home a bit inebriated last night. Sorry about that.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #45264)

Woops. That's what I get for not having a breathalyzer on my keyboard. I got a little drunk last night.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #45236)

What do you consider life? Would a set of DNA created totally by computer that even had a website encoded in it be life that has been produced? If so, you're wrong. If you think life is pieces of genetic code that reproduce themselves, that happens all the time from nothing. That also makes you wrong. If you think that life is a group of phospholipids forming cell walls, that happens all the time without intervention at all, which also makes you wrong. What do you consider life? If you want a fully formed cell with all its organelles to jump into existence out of a bunch of amino acids and lipids, you're nuts, since nobody thinks that ever happened, and the likelihood of that is next to zeroWhat do you think the ultimate source for 99.9999% of all food energy we get on earth is? Can we say, "THE SUN"? This is not a closed system. Plants convert energy from the sun into chemical energy, some of which is stored in sugars which are consumed by heterotrophs. We get the energy we use from both plants and animals, but the animals we eat ultimately get their energy from plants. Bringing up the second law of thermodynamics is a very stupid thing to do considering that we don't live in a closed system.  (Oct 14, 2010 | post #45231)

It sounds like that bothers you. Is the fact that you are related to "lesser" life forms what scares you about evolution? Let me put your mind at ease. Tobacco plants are just as evolved as we are. We are no better or worse than they are. Now, show us more how you use vegetables for brains and prove my point.  (Oct 14, 2010 | post #45230)

Should evolution be taught in high school?

Why did the first human or animal cell form in the first place? I'm not sure what you expect as a reply. Do you want me to explain abiogenesis or do you want me to explain how plant or animal cells could have evolved from more primitive cells like prokaryotic cells? It appears that eukaryotic cells evolved from prokaryotic cells by incompletely digesting other prokaryotic cells. The mitochondria for example has its own DNA separate from the DNA in the nucleus. This is strong evidence that mitochondria started out from another organism. This gave the newly formed cell respiration, which is what gives our cells the energy to do work, which would have been a huge improvement. A similar thing seems to have happened with plant cells, where a photoreactive prokaryotic cell was incompletely digested by another and formed the chloroplasts in plant cells. Anyway, there is nowhere near enough space to explain the evolution of every single structure in either plant or animal cells, much less both. The fact that you even ask the question is evidence that you haven't even taken a biology class at least in the last 30 years, yet you try to act like you know what you are talking about.  (Oct 14, 2010 | post #42352)

Atheism

Time to lift taboo on atheism

Statistics also show that religious people are generally more likely to commit crimes than the non-religious, especially sex crimes. On top of that, the religious are more susceptible to being victims of sex crime. Sexual deviance, it's not just a joke about Catholics anymore.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #2039)

We don't need fossils to demonstrate that humans are related to modern apes by more than just resemblance. The genetic evidence is even better than the fossil evidence.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #45032)

You still haven't shown how I mischaracterized you. It sure seems as if you're telling us that your tyrant god is going to punish us for not obeying a bunch of arbitrary rules. Would you find it moral if the government decided that spewing BS about the end times is illegal and the punishment was to be locked in the basement? Since the government is more powerful than you, and it provides for you, you should do whatever it says and accept its laws as just. It doesn't matter anyway. The flying spaghetti monster has killed your god. Those prophecies won't come true, just like the rest of the bible.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #1387)

So, you have no example. I didn't think so. There are very good explanations for how parts of cells could have evolved. If you doubt me, name one that couldn't have.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #42282)

Atheism

Atheism & Death

I found the estimate was published in newsweek: "By one count there are some 700 scientists with respectable academic credentials (out of a total of 480,000 U.S. earth and life scientists) who give credence to creation-science, the general theory that complex life forms did not evolve but appeared 'abruptly'." So, I guess there was something, but it is an estimate. I was thinking of it more like the number of scientists that believe that ultimately goddidit, not the number that don't believe in evolution. There is a much higher number of all scientists that believe that some deity had a hand in it. If I remember correctly, it was about 30% of the average scientists, but only like 4% of members of the national academy of sciences. That's why this number seemed rather odd. It's like 1/10%, which is quite a difference.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #12787)

I doubt that number is true. They may not believe the earth is 6-10 thousand years old, or something else similar, but to say what you are saying smacks in the face of common sense. I doubt there has ever been a poll of that many people to find out what they believe, and if there is, I would love to see it.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #12728)
