Quote# 4650

What's to say 'God' can do whatever he wants, considering he's able to do everything that is not against his nature? (so no 'can god make a toilet that he couldn't flush himself down it?' type of questions). Tell me some scientific discoveries as a direct result of atheism. Evolution? Woo. How practical.

Atheism doesn't "result" in anything, other than atheism.

Neither does theism, I should add.

@Robbie: Theism doesn't result in anything, other than atheism?

...yeah, sounds about right.

Evolution comes from science.

And not chalking everything up to God makes people less lazy and more motivated to find the answer instead putting a big goddidit stamp on every unexplaiined, naturaly occurring phenomena.

But we wouldn't this site if it wasn't for you fundies.

Evolution? Woo. How practical.

Very much so. Aside from the microbiological side of things, immunology, vaccinations and whatnot, evolutionary theory in the form of genetic algorithms is a very effective basis for data searching applications and optimisation of complex machinery. Incidentally, the functionality of such computer programs proves that the evolutionary model does work as described, and you damn well can see it in action.

Your task thus becomes, rather than untenably claiming evolution simply cannot work, to explain why evolution, which can be seen to work perfectly when applied to, say, simulated machine components which are manipulated so as to mimic sexual reproduction, genetic inheritance and population models as observed in the natural world, somehow cannot occur in that natural world. I don't envy you the task.

I couldn't have said it better. No, really I couldn't. An excellent response which will alas be drowned out by the "La-la-la-la-I-Can't-Hear-You"

Tell me some scientific discoveries as a direct result of theism. Take all the time you need, I'll wait.
