Quote# 2878

One of the reasons I was impressed with creationist writing and speaking at the beginning was not just their use of data, but the attitude with which it was presented. Instead of hearing, or reading, “this is the way it was” as though it were already known for sure, I was hearing an invitation to think and reason for myself, which was quite refreshing.

So you admit that facts are not especially impressive to you. Please tell us why we should bother listening to you opinion.

I'm afraid that never happened, Helen.
Sure, you can think and reason for yourself... as long as you come to the same conclusions your masters have. If you don't, you're fucked.

That same "invitation to think and reason for yourself" can probably also be heard during a story-book reading session at your local library. It's what fairy-tales and myths inspire us to do.

Nope. That's a trick to make you feel smart for believing what they say. Kent Hovind to William Laine Craig use this, Hovind with appeal to Biblical tenants, Craig with asserted logic claims. Both with preacher delivery.

If you want "think and reason for myself" take the challenges that Dawkins, Hitchens or Harris suggest, look into it for yourself, Science AND Religion.

Example:
Hovind and Craig regularly say things like "Scientists say the entire universe came from nothing and just happened, they claim we come from rocks. Isn't that stupid?"

Course it is, especially since scientists never said that. Did you look past that assertion, that blatant lie? I doubt it.
