Quote# 7676

Modern science uses the phoney idea of neutrality of science as a shield against the assertion that they are pushing an essenially religious notion of creation in the big bang theories. Thus we are now spending billions of dollars in the religious quest for life "out there" in space, which, I am sure produces howls of laughter from the Throne of HEaven.I hope and pray that scientists get enough integrity and honeesty going to admit the truth - that which they are fond of searching for, is that they, too are on a religious quest for origins.

I think if God is getting a laugh out of modern scientists using neutrality as a shield, he's getting just as big a chuckle out of this guy.

WHY YOU SHOULD REQUEST "RESPECT FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS" ON THIS SITE PUZZLES ME. GRANTED THEY ARE GOD'S HANDIWORK, BUT IN A CULTURE THAT CONSUMES HAMBURGERS BY THE TRILLION WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF COWS??? AND, TOO MY WINDSHIELD WIPERS DISPOSE OF A HOST OF INSECTS YEARLY. LAST, WHAT IS AN "ANIMAL" AND HOW DO THEY GET RIGHTS? ARE BACTERIA ANMALS? WHAT OF MOSQUITOS AND ANTS AND BODY PARASITES? PUZZLE ABOUT THESE FOR A BIT, PLEASE, REX DOWNIE

Rex, you are a lunatic.

Those of us who use our brains are merely looking for answers to puzzling questions. If you want to call that a "religious pursuit", well whatever, you can label it however you want. The difference between what we do and what you and your religious nutjobs do is that we do not invoke nor have the need of any invisible men in the sky. Just because we may not understand a phenomenon doesn't mean we throw our hands up and say "goddidit". We look for rational explanations, sometimes we find them sometimes we don't, but we keep looking. Your problem is that science is filling all the gaps in knowledge where god once lived, we are flushing him out and soon we will flush him down.

Also, you are a fucking idiot.

Admittedly, it's not religious if it's based on something you actually know. That's the point.

"...be on guard against giving interpretations of Scripture that are far fetched or opposed to science, and so exposing the Word of God to the ridicule of unbelievers."

"Creationist so-called 'scientific' refutations are based on misconceptions, poor science, scripture, faulty logic, lies, hearsay, fear, and a need to protect their dogma. Creationism is like a wild, cornered animal that has no way out, clawing and snapping at everything it can.

But, in the end, creationism is a good and useful thing. It has provided the motivation for evolutionists to amass a great wealth of knowledge in support of evolution. In the end, creationism has in fact strengthened evolution."
--Ken Harding, from "Talk.Origins' September Feedback"

Creationists have attempted to discredit scientific research and knowledge by claiming that what they preach is science. Creationists make no bones of their view that if scientific findings don't accord with the biblical record then science is wrong. In fundamentalist schools science is defined as a search for principles of God’s creation based upon reproducible experiments and any principle should always be subjected to the test of the Bible. Apart from the obvious absurdity of such a view, creationists carry out no "reproducible experiments", instead they attempt at every turn to undermine the proven foundations of evolution by misrepresenting scientific findings and misquoting reputable scientists.
