Quote# 83252

What you are referring to is not logic but “scientific method”, they gave up using logic because people like you wanted to hide their sin, and scientific method allows you to do so. Why do they not allow logic near their sacred cows? Because they know that the cows can’t stand up to logic.

Riiiiight.... because knowing how magnets work hides our sins from your invisible sky pixie.

Wait, what?

Wow this is so filled with irony and projecting that I don't even know where to start!

Damn right!


"What you are referring to is not logic but “scientific method”, "

The logic police are here to arrest you

He appears to be rejecting empirical evidence and inductive reasoning. Without those, "logic" can't verify anything except mathematical statements.

Scientists, Hindus, Vegetarians, whichever one has the sacred cows.
Don't ask me to know what I'm talking about, I'm a Fundie.

What "sins" do I want to "hide"?

The Scientific Method, Simplified:

1. “It looks like phenomenon A happens because of explanation B.”
2. Experiment a bunch of times…
3. Experiment results:
a. Fail: “Oh, I guess phenomenon A is not caused by explanation B.”
b. Success: “Hey! Explanation B does cause phenomenon A!”

I’ll leave it to the audience to explain where the lack of logic is in that.

Oh, FSM! There's no escaping the ponies on the internet, is there?

Resistance is futile you will be <strike>assimilated</strike> befriended.

Fine, then don't use your computer, medicine, clothing (made of abominable mixed fabrics no less!), or food from the store as those are all the result of the sinful scientific method. Stop hiding your sin by living a modern life with modern technology and posting on the internet!

Mmm, sacred cow.

Pot. Kettle. Black.

That is all.

You seem to hide your shame with stupidity

??? Using the scientific method allows us to hide our sin? WTF?

So I guess your god isn't omniscient after all.

is there anything bigger than a cluebat, harder than a cluebrick, and easier to find than a cluebreath? that guy needs some serious clueing in...

8/17/2011 6:29:50 AM


Rationalist- Well I left Christianity because...

Fanatic- *froth* You just want to justify your sin!!!1!!1! You filthy abomination!11!!!!!1!!

8/17/2011 6:34:35 AM


So wait, because science doesn't let you fall back on "God" which has yet to be proven, thus not real, science isn't logical, what?

8/17/2011 6:46:20 AM


See the full thread for some first-class faulty logic and meaningless, ill thought out statements from the theists.

8/17/2011 6:53:49 AM


Now wait just a minute.....

Logic = cow tipping?!?

8/17/2011 7:01:15 AM


@Mister Spak --

I'm not sure Spock is feeling too logical in that picture. But he's about to get off by rolling around in sparkly dirt with his Captain, so all is well (the fundies will still hate him).

Well, since sin is a construct of your imaginary friend, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that IT DOESN'T EXIST!
I mean, speaking logically.

The very fact that this person thinks that science and logic are unrelated and/or contradictory demonstrates that he/she knows nothing about either.

1. Have a question about something.
2. Make a guess as to what would happen, and set up an experiment that would prove whether or not your guess is correct. This guess is called a "hypothesis."
3. Perform that experiment. Record whether or not your hypothesis turned out to be right--be honest.
4. Come up with a rule that supports both the results of your experiment and the results of other people's experiments. This rule is called a "theory." If an old theory is overturned by experimental evidence, that theory must be faulty and should be revised or replaced, depending on just how faulty it is. (Or as the apostle Paul once put it, "Test everything; hold to the good.")
5. Repeat steps 1-4 ad infinitum.

The scientific method was invented BECAUSE it is a logical way of looking at our world.
