Quote# 78582

I am sorry so many of you are locked in worldview prisons that keep you from seeing the awesome beauty of creation and the many signatures of the Designer. Fractals. Fibonacci numbers. DNA. The harmonics of specific atoms that allow for combinations friendly to life that would otherwise be rare. The wonderful behavior of water, whose properties are most unusual and therefore allow for life, most specifically that ice floats rather than sinks to the bottom of a body of water because when water freezes it takes more oxygen with it, thereby becoming a covering and insulator for bodies of water rather than falling to the bottom and leading to a deadly total freeze of water in cold climates.

Fractals.

Idiot! A thousand times, idiot!

The whole fucking point of such things, and the reason that they astound people, is that they naturally arise from utter simplicity, and thus they do not need a goddamn creator!

"when water freezes it takes more oxygen with it"

WHAT.

Kid, take a bus to your nearest library and open up a book on physics. Now, take a good look at what you just shat up.

"The harmonics of specific atoms that allow for combinations friendly to life that would otherwise be rare. The wonderful behavior of water, whose properties are most unusual and therefore allow for life, blah blah blah"

What about all those puddles that just by chance happened to fall into holes that fit them exactly?

How ironic, because religion is a worldview prison which keeps you locked into the idea of a designer or creator, and prevents you from understanding the universe without throwing that variable into the equation.

And you can talk about DNA, atoms, and how ice behaves all you want, but you can't prove that all these wouldn't act the same way without a designer.

I agree, math is cool. So why isn't there more of it in the Bible? For that matter, why isn't "wash your hands" one of the 10 commandments?

@Le Tipex: I think he’s getting at air getting trapped inside bits of ice as it forms. Not that that has anything to do with ice floating.

Well, he's got a point. Imagine how much more difficult your day would be if the physical laws of this universe were not conducive to life.

Uh...I find those things awesome whether I think that a creator made them or they just happen...

Aaaand whatthefuck is with the bit on water and ice?

But, by definition, you cannot have uncontrovertable evidence of a supernatural creator and also faith in the same. Faith is belief without evidence. If you have evidence, you no longer have faith, you have knowledge. But that's just a small part of Radar's fail boat as his examples are in no way uncontrovertable:

Fractals. Fibonacci numbers.

Meh. So we found some mathematical oddities. There are tens of thousands of such. Some are practical, other pure novelty. Still no "signature of the Designer."

The wonderful behavior of water...

I like how he completely misses the forest for the trees with his "ice floats" description. I'm sure he's ignorant of the major ramifications of the 120 degree angle between the hydrogen atoms in the water molecule itself. I'd bet dollars to donuts he would dismiss this critical shape as "that's the way it is."

DNA.

That DNA is organized into "the blueprints for life" is not evidence of a creator. In the '50s, Stan Miller and Harold Urey showed that amino acids can be produced from methane, amonia, hydrogen and water vapor when an electric arc is introduced. There is lots of stored energy in the universe from the Big Bang that could have generated the world we know in the same manner.

"I agree, math is cool. So why isn't there more of it in the Bible?"

Not taking into account the concept of a talking snake, just the Bible stating that Pi = exactly 3 completely destroys the credibility of the Bible, and therefore everything it says is lies.



If not even God can create a wheel on the Biblical mathematical basis that Pi = exactly 3 (which as demonstrated by mathematics, as shown above, proves is impossible), then he's not omnipotent, thus he's not God, therefore he's a contradiction to himself, ergo he doesn't exist. QED.

All he has to do is prove us wrong. C'mon, Goddy-boy, give it your best shot. We're waiting...!

"I don't understand it so goddidit", just wrapped up in fancy wording.

Yes, we are advancing our Darwinist, gay, Muslim, atheist, Nazi, Communist, kitten-drowning, latte-drinking, liberal, worldview and there's nothing you or your god can do about it.
Nothing.
Bwahahahaha.

Why do Cretinists always think we can't see beauty in things just because we know how they formed naturally?

And don't forget, no mater how randomly you mix oil and water, God separates them again! Ain't He great?!! And when you play roulette, sometimes He makes your number come up. And you don't even have to be a believer. That's how loving He is! But since gambling is sinful, He only makes it come up about 1 time in 37 (1 in 38 on the more sinful double-zero wheel). Praise the Lord. Gimme another beer.

Ice floats, therefore; God.

Shit. Floaters and sinkers. Oh, the wondrous ways of God, His wonders to perform.

you don't NEED a designer to accept that all these things are as they are because they must be in our universe.

A religiionist is welcome to think that a designer set it up that way, but proof is not there to bakc it up.
