Igor Jakovsky: Not all Christians are 6000 year old earth creationists.


Indeed... Hardly any of the ones I've met are even close to 6000 years old!

MadMattressMack: mr lawson: this would be the maximum trolling
Leave this in the box:

Why? He's believes in God and is agnostic. He has spent quite a bit of time studying the implications of his research on religion. Leaving that there would be like leaving a copy of Mormon Scientist: The Life and Faith of Henry Eyring there.


If Hawking believes in any sort of "god", it's the same sort as Einstein did: the universe taken as a whole and the laws of nature comprise "god"... Ie: pantheism... But, he doesn't believe in the traditional creator god most people think of...

Yawn. Wake me when you have a reliable dating system. Everything out there now is either based on previous assumptions and therefore suspect on that grounds, or is technologically unreliable. Your first task is to establish incontrovertible evidence that a million years have passed. Then go ahead and prove, using scientific experimentation, that yesterday in fact happened. It's amusing to me how many things we take for granted that are not actually provable.

I don't know about you, but leaving "remains of the extinct relative of the elephant" doesn't strike me as nearly as remarkable as the remains of an extinct relative referred to in this line at the end of the article:

And it also has received an urn with someone's ashes inside.

What is this? "Honey, I love you, but I swear to God that when your mother dies I'm giving her to charity."

pedobearapproved: R.A.Danny: This just in, all Christians think the world is 6,000 years old.

step 1. accuse christians of using poor logic
step 2. attack a narrow belief that only a few of them hold using a straw man logical fallacy
step 3. act like you did something

I'm sorry, but that's funny as hell.

The only trolling here is from subby. Not all Christians are 6000 year old earth creationists.

Just the really obnoxious ones.

sigdiamond2000: This is what I hate about secular fundamentalists. They're always knocking at your door in the morning unsolicited, telling you how wrong you are and giving you stuff that purportedly proves your world view is false.


Ok, this is the funny thing.

So there's these people out there right? These people who believe that everybody is their brother and sister and good at heart. BUT, these people also believe that unless a person accepts something in their heart, that person will unfortunately go to a very horrible place for ETERNITY and be tortured endlessly. Crazy, I know, right? Bear with me here. So these people, for no selfish reason, spend their free time trying to get their message out to as many people as possible in an attempt to actually save all these other people from what they believe to be a horrible, terrible fate.

Here's the craziest thing of all. There's actually people out there who don't believe these people, but rather than politely say no and have a good day, they're actually beyond ungrateful assholes about it.

You know, you're free to believe and not believe whatever you want, but there's no reason to not respect other people whatsoever. I'm not a Christian/Buddhist/Muslim/whatever, but if some person out there honestly in their heart believes everybody who doesn't accept Jesus/Buddha/Allah/whatever is going to go to <insert Bad Place> forever and is taking their own time out of their own shiatty life to attempt to save mine from that horrible fate, I'm going to respect that person at least, even if I'm not going to convert. That person doesn't know you, but apparently thinks (whether right or wrongly) that you're worth saving from something horrible. The very least you can do is respect that and have some class.

Terrible Old Man: there's no reason to not respect other people whatsoever


Actually, there are many reasons: sanctimony, stupidity, ignorance, pissing on reason, influencing public policy based on the previous four things, there are more but really that should be enough

I don't need to "respect" people who have bought into lies that have caused untold suffering and who want to perpetuate that.  People who, by the way, totally dominate this country politically and socially.  Grow the fark up.
