Evolution Debate

Evolution vs. Creation

Oh, well done! If you keep it up, one day you might have learned two things. Then you'll be twice as clever.  (Aug 24, 2012 | post #40986)

Evolution Debate

Evolution vs. Creation

Well, that's laughably wrong. For one thing, the "week" has no scientific basis at all, it's purely arbitrary. A year is the time it takes for the earth to orbit the sun. (Yes, I do accept the Godless, unbiblical science if heliocentricity.) A day is the time it takes for the earth to complete one rotation. A week, on the other hand, could be anything. Four days, seven days, ten days...whatever the prevailing culture finds convenient. The ancient Egyptians and Chinese had ten day weeks. Our seven day week is based on astrology. There are seven moving things in the sky that can be seen with the naked eye - the sun, the moon, and the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. It's no coincidence that our weekdays are named after those objects.  (Aug 24, 2012 | post #40985)

I'm Sick of Evolution Lies. We Are NOT Animals!

Has anyone ever attemped to come up with an argument for excluding humans from the BIOLOGICAL definition of the word "animal" ? I've never seen any attempt to do this.  (Jul 7, 2012 | post #2011)

Agreed, the COLLOQUIAL definition of the word "animal" does not apply to humans. You're arguing against a claim that nobody ever made.  (Jul 6, 2012 | post #2009)

John McEnroe: American idol

He made the game of tennis worth watching. Seeing him throw his toys was so entertaining.  (Jun 15, 2012 | post #2)

Gays Behind Attacks On Christianity

So? Christians have been behind attacks on gays for centuries. It's about time they started fighting back.  (Jun 14, 2012 | post #330)

Masterbation a sin?

Actually, all religions are correct...when they say that all the other religions are wrong.  (Jun 9, 2012 | post #1794)

Will there be video games in Heaven?

"There's gifts for all the family There's toiletries and drains There's Sony Walkman headphone sets And the latest video games!" Monty Python. That's REAL scripture, that is.  (May 23, 2012 | post #32)

prove god is real

By this muppet's logic, evolution is proven by the existence of creationists.  (Apr 19, 2012 | post #529)

Well, if the lavatories in hell are clean, that's something at least. Tho' I'm not sure there will be any lavvies there at all. Doesn't the bible say hell is damnation without relief?  (Apr 19, 2012 | post #510)

Is The Bible Believable?

Except wayne's not really for the Bible at all. He likes the bits that allow him to feel superior to everyone else, but he'll dismiss anything in the Bible that calls his own behaviour into question faster than Richard Dawkins dismisses Genesis.  (Apr 19, 2012 | post #183)

Is The Bible Believable?

No, it's Bible believers who think Eve talked to a snake. Atheists are more likely to think snakes don't talk and Eve is a fictional character.  (Apr 19, 2012 | post #182)
