Go to: <em>WEIT</em> a top tenner in China

Double Bass Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Double Bass Atheist

Impressive. Despite the Chinese government's penchant for banning books, they do, however, heavily promote science.
Ironically, here in the US, we have more "freedom" but a serious lacking in the same common science education.

When I read WEIT, I thought it was very thorough and extremely well written (kudos Prof Coyne!)
Unfortunately, the fact that a book like this is even necessary is really quite sad.

Go to: Louisiana Creation Bill: Science classes need change

Double Bass Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Double Bass Atheist

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has a Biology degree Brown University, yet he’s a creationist. How does one get a Biology degree and yet still not understand the principles of evolution for which it’s based'
How does a creationist pass all those exams on evolution' Did he feel he had to lie in order to graduate'

EDIT: strangely all my question marks are being replaced with '. I tried to edit, but it just changes back.

Go to: My week: Ariane Sherine: I&#39;m a believer &ndash; in plastering buses with atheist slogans

Nice work Ariane!
My only complaint is that I wish you had used some stronger wording.
I've already heard several christians saying things like "Probably is the furthest an atheist can go" as if it's equally likely that there "probably could be a god."
...and "I do enjoy life and I'm not worried because I know my eternal future in heaven." ...bla, bla, bla

Go to: China finds major dinosaur site

Double Bass Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by Double Bass Atheist

Common creotard responses:
"Dinosaur fossils were put here to test our faith."
"Dinosaurs and man actually lived at the same time."
"Da lawd works in mysterious ways!"

Actually, about the only thing mysterious is why anyone today thinks the Buybull trumps science even in the face of overwhelming (and continuously mounting) evidence.
