I drunk what: Farking Canuck: I explain that science uses the "weight of evidence"does religion do this?
I drunk what: /power overwhelming
Farking Canuck: They try to apply it but their standards for "evidence" are far to low for them to draw any reasonable conclusions.
Farking Canuck: Religious people often believe that they are doing this
Farking Canuck: But their standard for evidence is severely lacking in rigor.
Farking Canuck: They use circular logic (god is real because bible; bible is real because god)
Farking Canuck: confirmation bias (the eye is complicated so that is a sign of a creator)
Farking Canuck: and good old common sense "logic" (how can the universe exist without a creator?!? (completely ignoring that their supposed creator then exists without a creator)).
Farking Canuck: I preferred the Terran Drop Ship
I drunk what: so then Jesus was a myth?
Farking Canuck: Attributing magic powers to him falls completely into the realm of speculation.
Farking Canuck: who caused enough of a splash to be memorable
Farking Canuck: Going into any more details gets extremely sketchy.
Farking Canuck: Many theories postulate that the Jesus figure was one of many street preacher types ... or that he didn't exist himself but represents an amalgamation of the figures of the day.
vudukungfu: Jesus IS a myth.
vactech: I drunk what: and how is religion different than this?True, I believe religion is quite natural, and I can prove it scientifically.
I drunk what: just not able to be accurately remembered because .......??

untaken_name: How long does it take for a car tire to assemble itself into a car? Bout as long as it takes inorganic molecules to assemble themselves into organic ones.
Farking Canuck: untaken_name: How long does it take for a car tire to assemble itself into a car? Bout as long as it takes inorganic molecules to assemble themselves into organic ones.Do people actually believe this is a reasonable argument against abiogenisis? Sounds like something Bill O'Reilly would say./never go full O'Reilly
Slaxl: get a car tyre and watch it for as long as it took from the formation of the planet till the first organic molecules started goin' about bein' all organicky
Farking Canuck: Do people actually believe this is a reasonable argument for abiogenisis?
I drunk what: Slaxl: get a car tyre and watch it for as long as it took from the formation of the planet till the first organic molecules started goin' about bein' all organickyFarking Canuck: Do people actually believe this is a reasonable argument for abiogenisis?apparently soof course they can't prove anything, but they will believe it anywaythat's why they have faith :3/to believe stuff without evidence...?//still waiting for a proper def.
Fano: Ignore evidence for evolution thus God = True is a fallacious argument, right?
Slaxl: then they'll be too preoccupied to bother us for the rest of their lives
I drunk what: Farking Canuck: Do people actually believe this is a reasonable argument for abiogenisis?apparently so
Farking Canuck: (1) religious belief is absolute vs. belief in scientific theories which is proportional to the amount of evidence provided
Farking Canuck: (2): scientific theories have several qualities that religious beliefs do not ... including evidence and falsifiability
I drunk what: Faith however does not mean nor did it ever mean, "believing in stuff withOUT evidence"just because you don't have evidence today does not mean that the evidence that occurred yesterday does not exist
I drunk what: NOR does it even remotely indicate that your beliefs are based on the ABSENCE of evidence yesterday, today or tomorrow
Farking Canuck: I would be interested in the documented falsification conditions that religions have built-in ... I have never heard of one.
