Quote# 59955

P.S. aaronc
the theory of evolution has made NO CONTRIBUTIONS WHAT SO EVER to any modern technology. My goodness, you people are digging for things to say. Theres a difference b/t hard science and soft science. Your 'modern miracles' have nothing to do with evolution. Evolution does not 'improve knowledge', as you say. You act like bible believing christians are hindering all these things, when in fact it has been bible believing christians that have come up with most of the technology through the ages.
Please, for the love, stop pretending like I am railing against science...I love science. I hate bad science, and thats what evolution is. It is a faith based religion.

"You act like bible believing christians are hindering all these things, when in fact it has been bible believing christians that have come up with most of the technology through the ages."

I can't think of *one single* modern invention that wasn't the product of either moderate Christians (the kind his misleading "Bible believing" qualifier is probably intended to exclude) or non-Christians.

Really? Is that so? I was sure being fooled. I mean I thought that modern medicine, particularly development of antibiotic and anti virals, had a lot to do with evolution.

It's silly I know but I thought it had something to do with microbes that cause illness *mutating* and such. Now of course these strains would thrive where the strains that are still susceptible to antibiotics would die, kind of like *natural selection*. Now if this process actually happened we'd need to develop new antibiotics, and knowledge of evolution would have some contributions to modern medicine, hence modern science/technology. Man those bio-tech professors had it all wrong, thanks for setting me straight.

a mind far far away

History and technology fail. Guess what, numbnuts, while your kind put Europe in the dark ages, the Muslims were becoming the most advanced and civilized society on the planet. They contributed much, much more than you fucks could ever dream of. And for about the last 4-500 years it's been the atheists, agnostics, pantheists, and all other non-theists that have been pushing science and technology forward. Even when you do get the occasional xtian scientist, they are normally considered heretics by the xtian community at large. Look at Galileo, or Newton. Both considered evil heretics by the church. So was Copernicus. And so have nearly every major scientist in history. So please, do us and yourself a favor, and get the fuck over yourself. I thought being egotistical and bearing false witness were sins to you people.

How can you love science, when you don't know what it is?

Lucretius

I think the telling word used here is 'technology'
He appears to be one of those who accepts things like the internal combustion engine,electronics etc. etc. in other words mechanical applications as 'science',but considers biology, chemistry, medicine etc as 'not science'.

Modern miracles?

there is no such thing as miracles - things happen through hard work and hard research - do you know what those are?

What proven technology have bible believing Christians come up with recently? or even a long time ago?

New antibiotics, developed before the old ones became redundant. Let's hope your life never depends on them, eh?

Fundie word redefinition:

"Good science" - Stuff I don't wanna give up.
"Bad science" - The rest.

Unfortunately for Judahslying, evolution is behind some of the current crop of processor designs, and will be responsible for more of the next-gen designs. Genetic algorithms have been used to develop models of the Earth's inner core, detect cancer, simulate protein folding in pharmaceuticals, improve the results of multidimensional spectroscopy, design car engines (and jet engines), design car bodies, keep water supplies running, find new oil reserves, increase agricultural yields, route telephone calls, reduce shipping costs, to name but a few.

Apparently all these amazing results, based as their are on the practical application of evolutionary theory, are really the products of a faith-based religion.

If this were in fact the case, all Judahslying would have proved is that praying to Darwin works, whereas praying to his god doesn't.

Understanding evolution has helped the field of medicine IMMENSELY.

I put forth (again) that Christians involved in scientific discovery and research are an entirely different or moderate Christians. Not literal or young Earth creationists

Fundamentalist literal Christians cannot work within the scientific method as they ignore evidence that violates their Fundamentalist world view. As this guy aptly demonstrates

So you're still trying to use good old penicillin on that drug resistant strain of Staph Aureus I take it?

"Good" science = cars, computers, religious TV, indoor plumbing, etc. AKA technology.

"Bad" science = genetics, biology, physics, etc.

I cite the work of Maurice Ralph Hilleman, which has saved your life at least once (statistically speaking).

Your Argument Is Invalid.

it has been bible believing christians that have come up with most of the technology through the ages.

Quite impossible, since the combination of doctrines required by modern fundies for a Christian to qualify as "bible-believing" didn't exist until the middle of the 19th century.

Evolution is the foundation of all biology and medicine. You lie.
