Orderly Universe: Evidence of God?

A rock does not have consciousness, therefore it cannot desire. A rock does not desire worship, therefore it deserves worship. This dualism is drivel.  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #813)

Orderly Universe: Evidence of God?

Either your beliefs are based on the writings of others and you are a rationalist, or your beliefs are based on your own experiences and you are an imperialist. Forgive me, but unless your "greater evidence" is a revelation from God, you fall into the camp of those who know because they are told or know because they have seen, in which case your evidence is no greater than anyone elses. Explain yourself.  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #812)

Should evolution be taught in high school?

If God exists, must his universal laws be true and observable even in complete ignorance of his existance? Yes. Is science the study of *observable* phenomena? Yes. Does this mean science can follow its method completely devoid of the recognition of the existance or non-existance of God? Yes. --The existance of God is irrelevant to science--  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #6928)

You made me shoot cola out my nose with that one... By the way, your forgot the possibility of universe among universes. Some scientists think so at least (although I think its drivel). Either way, the existance of universes with differing natural laws would completely change the framework of our understanding of a deistic being.  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #76)

I would say that Christians and Atheists have both tried to use the courts (federally funded institutions) to impose their will on the other side. The important distinction is that the action of one small group of a belief's followers does not necessarily show the will or belief of the whole. I was implying that you made a sweeping generalization of gross inaccuracy about an entire group of people. so, no. not really.  (Mar 12, 2008 | post #708)

This is in fact not true. I would offer citation, but since you did not I will assume you don't care for it. That...and I'm feeling lazy. Either way, you are incorrect, and if you wish to dispute my argument by assertion, you need merely post a citation.  (Mar 12, 2008 | post #6743)

Correction to last post, gives *no* credible weight. Also, to justify this post: Many planned parenthoods do not offer abortions. There were better ways to handle that bill, such as cutting funding to planned parenthood clinics that offered abortion. This removes the alleged problem without removing a worthwhile institution.  (Mar 12, 2008 | post #51)

Your data is highly biased, therefore suspect. This proves nothing and gives to credible weight to any argument.  (Mar 12, 2008 | post #50)
