Probably a Poe. But for the record, I don't consider "Why are we here? How can everything come from nothing? Why is there anything instead of nothing? Or, if information comes from a mind, then how can the information from DNA have originated from inert chemicals?" to be "basic" questions at all.

Scientific evidence that ignorance is indeed bliss.

Sure, an invisible being up in the sky makes WAY more sense.

big baby jesus
THE REASON SCIENTISTS USE "BIG FANCY WORDS" IS BECAUSE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT VERY COMPLICATED THINGS, SO THEY HAVE TO BE VERY SPECIFIC
THE REASON I USE BIG CAPITAL LETTERS IS THAT I AM YELLING, ON THE INTERNET

We have lost faith in scientist to answer some very basic questions like, “Why are we here?"
In science, and the context of this question, basic = fundamental != simple.
Why do you think the general theory of relativity is so much harder than the special theory?

"if information comes from a mind, then how can the information from DNA have originated from inert chemicals?"
If information came only from minds then it couldn't. Fortunately information can come from any non-random process, like natural selection for example.

Ignorant and proud of, apparently!. It's funny that you haven't lost faith in science when they have provided you with a computer to post this nonsense.
2/25/2008 3:57:24 PM
OK, here's some simple words:
What created god?

No what it comes down to, dear Rebecca, is that it's too hard to bother to read, learn or try to reason for yourself. Much better to convince yourself some ubiquitous old man with magical powers creates everything simply by the force of his words and if you just subjugate yourself enough, he'll let you into his special awesome home.
You know, this site used to make me laugh but reading crap like this is starting to just make me angry.

What exactly is an inert chemical?
Hell, everything reacts. Even the so-called 'noble gases' can form compounds, if the conditions are right.
2/25/2008 4:20:48 PM
To all the atheists that continue to try to dazzle everyone with your big fancy words...Blah, Blah, Blah!!
Yeah, why try to learn what those big scary words mean, because we all know big words are really just praise for the devil.
We have lost faith in scientist
And yet you still use a computer, drive a car, etc...
Why are we here?
That's for each and every individual to figure out for themselves. Science cannot answer that question.
How can everything come from nothing?
Everything didn't come from nothing, unless you're talking about skydaddy, in which case "MAGIC"
Why is there anything instead of nothing?
Because shit happens, there's no rhyme or reason to things. Humans are a blip on the universal timeline. In fact if we don't get our act together, we may not even be here in 1000 years.
Or, if information comes from a mind, then how can the information from DNA have originated from inert chemicals?
I'm not sure what your asking here. chemical information is different from rational information. But of course fundies always mix shit together and then snort when evolution can't explain the big bang.
They come up with silly things like Punctuated Equilibrium to explain the Cambrian Explosion
Instead of getting insulted, grab a fucking book and READ!
You don’t have to be a scientist to see that the God of the Bible makes way more sense and answers ALL of our questions with logic and reason.
"godidit" is not logical or reasonable.

Why are we here? How can everything come from nothing? Why is there anything instead of nothing? Or, if information comes from a mind, then how can the information from DNA have originated from inert chemicals?” They come up with silly things like "it was magic" or "a woman was made out of a man's rib" or "there was this talking snake and a magic piece of fruit". Silly, silly, silly.

Ah don' unnerstand them big fancy wrrrrds! You mus' be wunna them book learners!
All of the complex science you mentioned is based upon the simple stuff. Start at the bottom- which, by a happy coincidence, is where you are now- and work your way up.
Just because you've let your brain stagnate to the point where scientific topics look like in-group lingo doesn't mean that science has been set up as a competing philosophy.
But what really annoyed me about this post was the last sentence. This bullshit about God having ALL answers to ALL questions. It's a stupid claim that you'd have to be a total moron to make. Schrödinger's cat? Is there a Psalm that mentions it? The twin paradox? I don't recall special relativity appearing in the sermon on the mount. Grandfather paradox? Surely if god exists outside time then he can clear this one up?
The only way the bible will provide answers to the problems in your life, is if your existence is just as joyless and spartan as life was back when the bible was written. And while i've never visited Texas, I have heard stories...
2/25/2008 4:56:14 PM
It's too hard! I'm confused. I'm too fucking dumb! I'm too lazy to read! Thinking hurts my head!
'Goddidit' is way easier to understand.
I'll just believe that.
2/25/2008 4:58:41 PM
DNA didn't originate from inert chemicals it originated from organic chemicals.
2/25/2008 5:08:07 PM
Silly, silly, silly!
This is an argument?
2/25/2008 5:09:22 PM
Broken beyond repair.
2/25/2008 5:10:48 PM
"...with logic and reason"
2/25/2008 5:11:29 PM
Scientists just make big words and don't really know what they are talking about with all this 'physics' stuff. That's why our computers and rockets and satellites and stuff never work, because they are based on flawed theories.
2/25/2008 5:26:47 PM
Big fancy words like "you" and
2/25/2008 5:44:36 PM
While minds can process information, the information is already there in all cases - The arrangement of the continents, the location of stars, the weather patterns, DNA.... bitch.
2/25/2008 5:52:16 PM
We're too stoopid to understand all that scientific mumbo-jumbo. LOL
2/25/2008 5:56:42 PM
I often wonder if fundies recoil upon seeing a secular science book, much like vampires in sunlight.
"IT IS OF THE DEVIL! TAKE IT AWAY! SAVE ME, JEBUS!" (Fundie makes "cross" symbol with both index fingers, arms stretched as far away from the body as possible. Eyes are wide and fearful. Possibly literally backed against a wall.)

"To all the atheists that continue to try to dazzle everyone with your big fancy words...Blah, Blah, Blah!! We have heard it all before and guess what...you are still not convincing. Nobody is biting. We have lost faith in scientist to answer some very basic questions like, “Why are we here? How can everything come from nothing? Why is there anything instead of nothing? Or, if information comes from a mind, then how can the information from DNA have originated from inert chemicals?” They come up with silly things like Punctuated Equilibrium to explain the Cambrian Explosion or multi-verses to explain how everything came from nothing. Silly, silly, silly! Is it no wonder that we laugh at your scientific mumbo jumbo?! You don’t have to be a scientist to see that the God of the Bible makes way more sense and answers ALL of our questions with logic and reason."
Sheesh. Anyone who doesn't see this childish rant as a massive forfeit on the whole issue would be unreachable by facts and logic anyway.

If you distrust science, go back to your cave. Thanks.
