“Darwinism”

October 5, 2019 by

Calling evolutionary science “Darwinism” is the dishonest attempt by religionists to bring science down to the level of religion. It’s like calling vehicle engineering “Henry Fordism”.

The science of biology isn’t stuck in the mid-1800s just as the science of vehicles isn’t stuck in the early 1900s.

If you believe evolutionary science is in trouble because it has evolved since Darwin’s time, you are deluding yourself. That would indicate you believe vehicles have been disproved because they’ve changed since the days of Henry Ford. That’s just dumb.

Darwin simply figured out that species change through natural selection. It was the first time someone had figured out a mechanism behind evolution– but since his time humans have figured out more mechanisms– horizontal gene transfer, sexual selection, and more. This doesn’t disprove his discovery; it enhances and builds on it.

Religionists are so desperate to bring science down to the level of religion that they’ll tell any lie to feel they have done so. But it’s still a lie. And if they know it, they are creeps. If they don’t know it, they are pathetically ignorant. And evolution still happens either way.

Political “science”

This thing people call “political science” is no more science than “Creation science”.

Both are religious superstition trying to grab onto the coattails of science. I hope you never fall for it in either case.

The dirtiest trick

October 28, 2018 by

For decades I’ve heard Christians saying “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist”.

Well, god did him one better.

The greatest trick god ever pulled, if he had been real, was convincing the world he’s the good guy, when the stories in his book show quite clearly that can’t be true.

Anti-evolutionists help arguments for evolution

October 21, 2018 by

Some of the best witnesses for the truth of evolution are the “arguments” of those who don’t accept it.

They get almost everything wrong. They don’t understand what evolution means, how it works, what it is, or the evidence for it.

When they explain their opposition to evolutionary science they do nothing but show their total lack of understanding.

Then they’ll say “I have a degree; I took science courses. I understand what science is and what it isn’t.” And then expect you to bow to their superior knowledge and accept their (usually, religious) pronouncements on evolutionary science.

And, quite often, they’ll call anyone who sees through their utter ignorance a “Darwinist”, or even a “Darwinian atheist“! And make acceptance of evolutionary evidence out to be a false religion. Yikes! How scary!

They aren’t the reason I acknowledge the reality of evolution. But they are the reason I can’t take their anti-evolution side seriously.

If you have some actual evidence, show it. Just one piece of real proof, which withstands scrutiny, could falsify evolution. Just one. But after years and years of asking for this evidence, they’ve shown nothing but misunderstanding and ignorance. Sad little superstitionists.

Where do your morals come from?

If you get your morals from your religion or from government’s laws, that would explain why your morals aren’t ethical.

You can do better.

My superpower

June 12, 2018 by

Seriously, I don’t tell many people about my superpower. Some people know I have this ability, and they often use it to their advantage, and I don’t really mind. The only problem is that they don’t realize they are using my superpower so they take it for granted.

What is this superpower?

I can think.

Yeah, I know it doesn’t sound that remarkable… but if it isn’t, why don’t the people I encounter do it?

Instead, they just ask me for the answers.

I never claimed to be a math whiz, but those around me ask me instead of figuring it out for themselves. When people need an answer for just about anything else, it’s the same story- ask the Squarest Peg; don’t try to think it through.

It’s no wonder I sometimes feel like the smartest person in the room when I think and see no evidence anyone else does.

Thinking seems easy, but it must be a superpower. Otherwise everyone could do it.

Know your place

April 21, 2018 by

The Universe includes all physics, which includes all chemistry, which includes all life, which includes all animals, which includes all vertebrates, which includes all mammals, which includes all monkeys, which includes all apes, which includes all humans, which includes you.

Obviously many, many steps were left out, but that’s the gist of it. Your place in the Universe. Pretty cool, huh.

Will flattery get you anywhere?

February 28, 2018 by

It is bewildering to me why people praise God when someone is suffering. As if flattering God will cause him to intervene and help the sufferer. Maybe they actually believe it will.

In my family there have been a few recent examples. A couple of them went ahead and died after people said God was healing them. (“Praise Him and His wisdom”) One guy is suffering now, but may actually recover. I guess God liked the flattery this time, but not the other times.

God is vile.

All I’ll say is that he wasn’t the least surprised by the lack of an afterlife.

Flat Earth and Creationism

February 17, 2018 by

Recently one of my relatives was shocked to discover there are “Flat Earth” believers out there.

She thinks they are just messing with everyone because no one could actually believe such a thing. Not in the year 2018.

Yet, this person believes a personal God created the Universe in 6 days 6000 or so years ago, with all animals in their present forms. And made humans out of mud and rib bones.

Neither belief is any more rational than the other. They are both crazy beliefs without any basis in reality.
