Go to: Atheists are arrogant? I think the opposite.

Agreed. That the supposed creator of every single thing in the universe--from every star in the sky, to every star athlete, to every starving child-- has your interests at the center of it all is the very epitome of arrogance.

Not only that but the arrogance required to believe that they happen to live in the eye-blink of deep time/space that the "correct" god concept exists to even worship is nearly unmatched.

Go to: Why Do So Many Have Trouble Believing In Evolution?

mr_rybread's Avatar Jump to comment 59 by mr_rybread

Progress in the battle for the minds of people is slow mainly because of a simple word. That word is "Theory". No matter how many times it is stated at the beginning of every science book that a Theory is not just a guess, nobody who is opposing this issue has even opened said science books to read the explanation.

Since a Law does not state a mechanism or offer an explanation of the phenomena in question is it possible to state that there a Law of Evolution (it happens, that is a fact) and in turn it can be buttressed by the Theory of natural selection, Theory of sexual selection etc., Gene Theory of inherited traits etc?

So a god can create a universe, but cannot perform healing while those pesky docs are in the way...

Go to: Does Perry's campaign ad use Richard Dawkins' distinctive "A"? Inquiring atheists want to know.

Who else tried to click on 'play'?

Years of dedicated pornography watching made it instinctual for me.

Comment 10 by n0rr1s :

And on vague ideas- quantum mechanics is much more vague than "let there be light" and all that mess.

I disagree with this: quantum theory is extremely precise.

True. However I never called into question its precision, or accuracy, just making the point that atheists without physics degrees can be comfortable with vague concepts for how our universe works.
