With apologies to Danielle Bunten Berry. To address these points in reverse order for no particular reason: “Just out of curiosity.” Bullshit. Feel free to prove me wrong, though. “If the Bible never existed, would you be more likely to believe in a creator?” You mean like all the other religions, including the ones that… Continue reading Apple’s Coke M.U.L.E.
“I know these guys must believe in something, otherwise, they wouldn't get so angry about it,“ Oh, Kevin, sweetie, I believe in plenty of things. God simply isn’t one of them. I believe in the possibility of life beyond our own planet. I can’t prove it, but I find the evidence we’ve discovered thus far… Continue reading Dear Kevin Sorbo: A Very Special “Dear Religious People”
At the risk of sounding like I'm wishing death and misfortune on someone, I have to wonder what this guy's tune may or may not change to when he gets fired from his job or finds out he has cancer or that he's being sued for sexual harassment and there's hard evidence to demonstrate as… Continue reading Don’t Talk To Me About Life

Normally, when theists try the whole "evolution/science is just a… Continue reading Kindred Fudges Counting

So you have thus expressed your own personal interpretation of an ancient text, while criticizing my use of the ancient text, the Bible. If by "use of" you mean your own personal interpretation of the ancient text, then the answer is yes. Welcome… Continue reading Carnicom Undone
I've often said of creationism that if I can expose the basis for your argument as being either Incredulity, better known as an argument from ignorance, or more broadly the notion that something which appears complex must only be so by deliberate and motivated design.OR: Pascal's Wager, which is more about social expectations/keeping up appearances… Continue reading Elmore Fundamentalist: Prologue
Following a legitimately interesting answer from an Evangelical Christian identifying as a theistic evolutionist, we get this confused mess of an attempted argument by someone who at first seems to contradict himself, then reveals to simply be giving credit where credit is due. We do not insist 24 hr days. Young Earth Creationists do, or… Continue reading A Small Load of Landry
