21st January 2009

“All religious people – whether they like it or not, whether they accept it or not – fall at the first hurdle of the main requirement for honest scientific discussion because they accept unfounded dogma as having fundamental significance.”

    I today, have more hope then I did yesterday.
    And I believe you can find a little for yourself from the following.

    In Barack Obama’s eloquent inaugural address he stated: “On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”
    He also stated-and I believe this is HUGE-“We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and non-believers.”

    Whoa! I just peed my pants!

    Agreed…

    Even worse is their gross misunderstandings about scientific study.

    Such as:

    1. The definition of the word “theory”, in contrast to faith!
    2. Thinking that evolution means monkeys having human babies!
    3. Thinking carbon dating is when two pieces of silicon ‘hook-up’
    4. Thinking dinosaurs are put in the ground by god to fool us
    5. etc… etc… etc…

    If it were not for science, everyone (except the Amish and Mennonites) would be in for a rude awakening, when their blackberries stopped working and their cars disappeared! Not to mention that Starbucks would not be here! Ouch!!! Wake up and smell the coffee folks! Science is everywhere and you enjoy it as much as us heathens! When the Doctor says your spouse has cancer and the only way to treat it is “By Scientific Means!” you will not say “Thanks anyway, I’ll let God take care of it, he loves me!” You’ll have their butts hooked up to that scientific machine in the wink of an infidels eye! A scientific infidel that is!

    Seems everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die to get there. Save me Doc, please don’t let me die! <— me venting! lol

    Cheers! And congratulations Mr. President Obama!! Good Luck!

    Called National Public Radio this morning while discussing Obama’s speech.
    Said loud and clearly, “besides liking his acknowledgement to nonbelievers, my best quote by far was when he stated ‘We will restore science to its rightful place!!'”

    I like this man, they call Barack Obama.
