Creationism Outbreak by doctormo Creationism Outbreak by doctormo
I heard the phrase "Transmissible Fundiform Encephalopathy" and thought it was so cute I'd use it in a quick image to iconify my feelings on what creationism is.

Haha! Tell us know more science to stop looking stupid. Well, I'll tell you to know your Bible to stop looking hypocritical.

Genesis tells us God created the world in SIX days and he rested on the seventh. The Bible also mentions dinosaurs, a round Earth, implies a single continent, shows sanitary practices and good diets.

Then there's Raymond Damadian, a Creationist, who invented the MRI; C.S Lewis was also an outspoken atheist until finally becoming a Christian and then made the Chronicles of Narnia with Christian themes along with J.R.R Tolkien.

Anyways, if Creationism is like a outbreak, Eugenics is like a pandemic.

I know the bible quite well. As a skeptic I have to know the text very well in order to defend myself from people who believe literally in something with is simply not true. Let's play, name that logical fallacy:

1. Assumption of ignorance, that I don't know religion and thus would choose to be Christian if only I knew the truth. When in fact I know and reject as fantasy.
2. Retrospection Bias, attempting to link known scientific elements to things either in the bible or assumed to be in the bible.
3. Appeal to authority, that what celebrities believe is worthwhile just because it's them that believed it.
4. And finally a straw man the size of a small planet; that forced eugenics is equiverlent to science or that eugenics is science or that eugenics isn't politics or that religion hasn't been massively involved in eugenics throughout it's history.

Basically, special pleading to try and hold onto your views. Your views are wrong and this post won't change your mind because I've done a very bad job at trying to empathise. But I'll have to leave your education to someone else alas. Apologies!

Good for you for actually reading the bible unlike so many others. And also thanks for YOUR assumption I wouldn't change my view. I guess we're all human, aren't we?

You made your choice to not follow Jesus but attackers other followers and trying to get support from it, calling Creationists crazy, irrational and stupid is not okay. That's bullying and is becoming a bigger problem now with the internet.

People use science to make the "perfect race" that takes from evolution where it has survival of the fittest and elimination of the weak. That's what the Holocaust was about. That's what abortions and genetically altering babies are. It has as much discrimination, hate and slaughter as much as religion does. Your evolutionary views just makes it seem "natural".

Also...so using the Pope to claim evolution is true isn't a fallacy either? The very Catholics many hate because of child abuse, witch burnings, the Crusade and the whole flat Earth thing?
Raymond Damadian actually made a life saving invention. What good would you say the Vatican has done?
You don't have to answer that one. I'll just assume you don't actually support nor use the Vatican to promote evolution/science/medicine but maybe you can do it for the other atheists who do?

And lastly, thanks for sharing your views. I believe your faith is also wrong and mere fantasy to continue your lifestyle of lust, hate of others and failure to accept others differences because who would listen to a bunch of obviously inferior human beings? As I've seen on other posts concerning this subject, we should all just "be burned like [we] did the witches. [We] all deserve to die because [we're] stupid."

Actually what you talk about it not science. It's just people arsing about with philosophy. Science only tells you what's really there. Philosophy, now that's something that can tell you what ort to be and how vile you should be to make it happen.

One wonders what truth you have, or not.

You're right, evolution isn't science at all, it is a philosophy and a closely guarded dogma. I am going to talk about where that theory, this worldview, affects our thinking.

I already mentioned survival of the fittest. If anything, an evolutionist doctor should be an oxymoron.
You have relative morality. It's bad as long as others say it's bad, and is totally dependent on the ever-changing times of our world.

The law says it's illegal to murder a person...well, what constitutes as a person? Just a hundred years ago, Jews weren't considered human and perfectly fine to murder and guess what? Along with physical harassment, stealing entire homes and wrongful imprisonment because of all the things that went along with not being considered human. And it was nice and legal.

That was just the implications of being considered human. Now what is murder? When a man stealing a purse shoots the woman, that's considered murder and should be sent to prison.
But when a mother simply doesn't want her baby it's okay to shoot it up with poison, gets another name and is called a right. In Canada, the "fetus" is considered human when it exits the womb. Most abortions have the baby out of the womb, alive for several hours, until finally dying or survives to lead a full life. Abortions can cause depression for the mother, can be dangerous and even fatal,  killing the mother, and abortions are usually unnecessary in many cases.

Like I said, your evolutionary views just makes this all okay. There is no God so you look to the people. Relative morality.
You will go where the people go no matter what.

What Young Earth Creationist fail to Answer is if Humanity and Dinosaurs lived together, how come there is no tools or jewelry made out of Dinosaur bone

doctormo Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well, there's plenty of jewellery made from chicken bones. Avian dinosaurs are really quite useful to humanity ;-)

The question posed is a red herring anyway. It's used to distract from the more earthy questions like: Look with the eyes god gave you upon the world that he made for you and decide with the mind he gifted and come to conclusions using reality god likes you to live in. If you don't like science, then you are simply insulting god's work.

WTF atheism is right and there is no scientifically correct study that proves atheism wrong but there are many studies that proves religion wrong and anyone smart will realise that atheism is the truth as long as they are not forced to belive from a early age. and science is slowly winning the "battle" as we gain more knowlage my guess is that it vill be rare or gone altogether (in the western world) in 300 or 400 years

The fact that religion (ANY religion) cannot be proven either way frustrates me. People insist on claiming that their religion is factual, when they can't really prove it. That's part of the definition of religion: it's based on beliefs.

When you look at many religious beliefs with scientific eyes, most parts of religion fall apart: the sun is not rolled across the sky each day, for example, and the rain is not tears of the angels. In these regards, religion is wrong.

However, where religion and science truly clash is in attempting to define the undefinable: is there a god? (Or more than one?) What happens to the soul after death? (Does the soul even exist?) In these regards, religion isn't wrong, nor is it right. There simply isn't a provable answer either way, and so we argue endlessly in circles.

Perhaps religion's greatest purpose is that it gives us a set of moral guidelines, and comforts us in our darker moments. Given the choice, which would you rather believe happens after death: that you are reunited with your deceased loved ones, or that you simply cease to exist? Religion may not always be right, but I doubt it will go away anytime soon.

atheism has so many holes and evolution was proven wrong because DNA just simply doesnt work like "things change over time" in DNA humans and monkies are 45,000,000 neurotides apart and a change of 3 neurotides over time is extremely fatal

nucleotides are the smallest unit of measuring dna, at an almoat molecular level. So saying however many million nucleotides apart is deliberate misinformation and exaggeration. I doubt you were even stating facts though.

I'm just curious, was evolution proven wrong before or after it was directly observed?

By the way, the fact that you just said "neurotides" demonstrates that you don't really know what you're talking about.
Reply
:icondoctormo:
doctormo Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
And yet 100 changes or even shifts can be not fatal at all. It depends on the changes and depends on the number of available attempts you get try at making a workable new life.

It's all mathematics, nothing to do with biology at all really.

So I believe that in order to prevent damaging evolution, we should all have lots of sex. This is to ensure that workable clones can be produced in each new generation.

A God that must be proved in order to exist, or that must rely on the beliefs of humans, is no god at all.

Also, open-mindedness is always trumped by preconceived notions.

The distressing thing is not that people hold a belief in an omnipotent deity, but that their beliefs are not self-tested. Out of a lack of faith that their God might prove to be insufficient, or a deeply-held fear that they are not "doing it right" by professing a belief in a god they don't really believe in?

Well faith, that's the funny thing. Most faith we have is practical, I have faith in gravity and when I throw something I am certain it will fall in a certain way because of my faith. But I can not know it to be true beforehand.

To test my faith you simply have to show my preconceived notions, my testing of the universe, to be insufficient.

The problem with God is that it is the test which is faulty, not the result. Hence the Apathiest image also in my gallery,
