Go to: Why Dawkins's case against religion creaks at every joint

I know the people at the richard dawkins foundation are just trying to be fair and balanced in their distribution of content between positive and negative cases, but I dont think you should be posting cases that are this poorly written and considered.

"Dawkins’s case is built on twin platforms. First, that evolution offers a full and adequate explanation of how the world came to be as we now know it; and this makes creator gods superfluous."

Yeah when ? I cant remember a single example where Dawkins was moronic enough to claim that evolution is all wrapped up in fact I remember a point Christopher Hitchens made during the four horsemen discussion when he essentially said that the most abhorrent and dangerous concept to science and the furthering of civilised society is that no further inquiry is required.

This is just yet another example of the religous being forced to put words in our mouths in order to be able to pretend to make a case.

Theologians should stick to meta physics.

Man this guy is obsessed with the cock, imagine making a video every time you notice something shaped like a penis, or with hidden sexual connotations, but what amazes me more is that hes worried about the plan of a baggage handling area instead of say the sexualised nature of advertising.

I don't like the American atheist alliance or whatever it is called their advertising isn't insulting in my opinion it's just unimaginative and vaguely moronic. They have a vast array of atheist poster boys and girls and lots of amazing witty arguments to put fourth, the "you know its a myth" line is pretty crappy. He kind of stinks of someone trying to ride the atheisim horse to fame and wealth instead of trying to understand the importance of the debate. You are letting the side down, try harder, D - .

Go to: Should Young Earth Creationists be Allowed to be Doctors?

We had been with our family doctor for about 9 years a gentle well meaning Chinese gentleman who would always ask about the progress of my studies and encourage me. Then he sold the practice which was renamed to something benign the green hills family practice or something I walked in there one day for a tonsilitis infection saw the cross on the wall and walked straight out. The thought of someone claiming to be a scientific man yet retaining that belief is irrational, irrational people cannot make decent scientists, a doctor to a biologist is a similar relationship as a physicist to an engineer if an engineer told you that he hadnt bothered to calculate if the span would work but if it failed he reasond that god would prop it up for him you would you want to be on that bridge
