Good luck picking on PZ!If he even notices your drivel, he will be along shortly to eviscerate your arguments.It should be really fun to watch.Oh and by the way: "reading into the text that which they wanted to see there—they took texts out of context to make pretexts for prooftexts." is what every religion does. Christianity is actually one of the most egregious offenders in this category. Muslims get a bad rap for all of the violence they commit, but they are more true to the Koran than Christians are to the bible, because both books contain about the same level of violent calls to action. Christians are just in denial more.
Rex:Okay so we know you obviously haven't read the Bible. That and your just one of those people who makes atheism look bad. If PZ Myers did notice this site he wouldn't adress the arguments and would instead spend time calling people names and acting like a kid who didn't get what he wanted for Christmas.All in all I've never understood PZ Myers. His blog in itself is one thats only full of ridiculous assertions he doesn't even feel the need to back up. He just makes them for kicks. When he went to Expelled he simply left the theatre and started "laughing" at how stupid it was while complaining they'd made him look dumb. Sounds exactly like a whiny kid.signed: "that anonymous troll" ;)
Oh I know! That love they neighbor clause just has those CHUDs crawling out of the sewers to kill all of those unsuspecting humans during Christmas.While on that subject, I wonder what the patron saint of the Atheist/Agnostic Church thinks in terms of "their fellow man":"...the weak members of civilised societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man itself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed... Nor could we check our sympathy, even at the urging of hard reason, without deterioration in the noblest part of our nature... if we were intentionally to neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming present evil."Eugenics anybody? But... that never happened as a direct result of the tenants of the Atheist/Agnostic Church! Nooo..."At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes . . . will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the negro or Australian [Aborigine] and the gorilla."And... evolutionary justifications for racism and racial/imperialistic superiority! Wow! Who'd have thought, huh? from the grand pagan creation story that has man being nothing more than an animal - who would have guessed that this would be the inevitable conclusion?! (instead of "love thy random assortment of chemicals that calls itself your neighbor"; Charlie forgot to add that to the liner notes in "Descent".)And of course, who would have guessed that the 20th Century would bear out the logical fruits of these schools of thought. I mean, c'mon! Stalin's Purges of kulachniks? Hitler's taking of Darwin's words literally and thus purging the "Aryan" body of "the weak, the infirm, the 'less evolved'"?...
Unbelievable, right? (Oh wait, that's right - atheists don't have "beliefs"). I mean, who could have ever thought that this all came from a philosophy (belief) that tells people they're animals, that there's no binding moral authority (except that might makes right! Don't forget that law of the jungle!), that there are inherent genetic inferiorities amongst mankind, that the stronger always destroys the weaker, that the infirm and weak degrade the overall strength of "the people" (or "Die Volk", ja?)... Who can't feel the love (i.e., the random assortment of chemicals that rush to an equally randomly assorted brain) when they hear that gospel truth? I know I tingle with philanthropic delight everytime I think about survival of the fittest (i.e., the most ruthless, cunning, opportunistic, selfish, etc.)...Great thing is, of course, that adherents to the Atheist/Agnostic Church are (well, how can we put this kindly?)... in denial - of not only their own basic gospel credos, but that they're even adherents (and in some cases, preachers and apostles) of the Church of Darwin. They'd even deny that they have a church, or a belief. Without a crutch, these people!But it's ok: Given enough time, they'll move from denial to active proselytizers who aren't ashamed of their faith (following the lead of Pol Pot Myers), to eventually becoming active participants in their non-jihadi faith. Took the Reich only about... hmm, 50 years, from the time of Haeckel to the birth of the NSDAP.And, of course, for those of you who will without fail brandish the "Hitler was an awesome Christian" card and "the Reich was the Church incarnate" spiel: Some bedtime reading, courtesy of the O.S.S., Nuremberg prosecutors, Cornell University Law Library, and Rutgers: "The Nazi Master Plan: The Persecution of the Christian Churches".(Documentation of other war crimes committed by Hitler and the Darwin Gang can be found here.)
