Yes good to avoid mentioning the word "Hitler" of "Nazi's" in any argument or debate. It's just a pointless extreme.

It's ironic that the Catholics are trying to crucify PZ. I think his message will only get stronger if they succeed.

Anyway best of luck, email sent from Japan.

Stealing the flesh of Christ. I'm surprised God didn't zap the Universe and revoke redemption.

They should give the gambling industry a try next time. If that fails they could always open a brothel.

riki's Avatar Jump to comment 86 by riki

Letme guess, the Alien's were cast out of an alien garden of eden, so they too are not free from original sin. In which case maybe we'll find naked aliens somewhere in the universe, who have no idea their naked. But what will they make of us in our space suits?

Actually alien's might not understand the concept of nudity. So maybe he's onto something here.

riki's Avatar Jump to comment 37 by riki

The simplest proof (yet one that no atheist has ever been able to counter effectively) is that a universe of this size and magnitude does not somehow build itself, just as a set of encyclopedias doesn't write itself or form randomly from the spill of a massive inkblot.


I see this kind of annoying logic used a lot. Science can't explain why there is something rather than nothing, therefore my whacked-out, untestable, fantasies must be true.

I think a large proportion of Australians would tick the Christian box on a census. But I think for the average Aussie that means about as much as a Christmas card and a few Easter Eggs.

I've heard other stories from Africa, were self-professed witches or witch doctors create good luck charms using human body parts taken from live children. The intension being to inflict the most amount of pain on the most innocent of victims, to conjure up the strongest mojo.
