Go to: A Letter From Hell

BAEOZ's Avatar Jump to comment 198 by BAEOZ

I stopped after the first bit (assuming, as there always is, that there were more bits) about going to hell. What if? What if Quetz gets mighty angry with me for making a pot of English breakfast, then not taking the time to drink it. That worries me more about some kid not knowing more about Jebus.



Now all you types who like philosphy lite get over to my

to discuss Hume's fork.

Go to: The New Theology

Like my fellow darling atheists I await your evidence for the existence of the gods with baited breath. I am indubitably like a coiled spring.


I fear you will be rusty and unsprung before Brother John provides anything approaching what you seek dear Cartomancer.

Go to: The real danger in Darwin is not evolution, but racism

Henri:

I advise you to control your emotions, they betray you.

I sense fear, fear leads to anger, anger leads to the dark side. The pull of the dark side is very strong young skywalker....

Did anybody else have a moment when they thought Henri was channeling Emperor Palpatine?

Anyway, this whole article is just and argumentum ad consequentiam (As I tried to spell out last night). Even if Evolution does mean racism, which it doesn't, it won't make it wrong.

Thanks Steve. On an unrelated topic. Nobody appreciated my effort in typing?

Steve, I've got The Anscestor's Tale and God Delusion. I haven't read selfish gene, but I believe I understand evolution (inasmuch as it's not teleogical and fitness refers to the actual environmental conditions, not Carl Lewis.*) I've also done some undergrad bio. Do I need more?

I forgot: I've got The origen of Species. But I've only read half it. I'm not a pigeon fancier

I forgot to add, that evolution relies on random mutation and non-random natural selection to winnow away those mutations that are deleterous to a species in a given environment and these become the foundation of mutation too
