Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Yay for the constant stream of nut jobs with high school educations clearing up the whole "existence of god" issue. I bet she also has some valuable insights on the benefits of a flat tax.

durbnpoisn: I suppose I'm fine with people using this as an excuse for some hyper-intelligent being (called God), being responsible for the beginning of it all. Whatever makes you feel better. But it does not in any manner whatsoever prove any excuse for religion.
Misconduc: Few years ago I went to college, there was a crazy chick spewing how Science cannot explain the big bang theory, let alone half of the universe, so in that case God must exist. I watched two drunk physic major's just drill the hell out of her for a good 20 minutes in which she couldn't even answer a single question on the law of physics.

doubled99: Atheist hereFark religion threads are always fascinating. An overwhelming majority of posters here deride idiots for believing in the magical sky fairy, yet somehow over 70% of all Americans adults admit they believe in god.I guess atheism is a hip trend that many abandon as they get older. Fear of afterlife, maybe?
stonicus: Mikey1969: OtherLittleGuy: Well, of course. Here's the aftermath.[i2.minus.com image 850x1133][whatshotwhatstrendingnow.files.wordpress.com image 786x1190]That second one is interesting... I can't figure out if the 3rd zipper is for sex, or so she can take a leak...Sometimes one, sometimes the other... and sometimes both at the same time...
rickythepenguin: [ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]Nabb1: The guy who came up with the theory didn't seem bothered by the idea of the existence of God.i just read Chris Hadfield's pretty entertaining book; he flew several shuttle missions and spent about 6 months on the ISS. anywyas, to your comment, he says something in the book, about how you see untold majesty in the cosmos and the awe of Earth (i think 18 sunrises in 24 hours due to the ISS' orbit), something like, "those who leave Earth either believing in a deity or rejecting religion in its entirety usually come back to Earth feeling even more strongly in that belief system, whatever it may be."/he was on Nerdist podcast a few months back, very interesting listen. book was ok but the podcast, more of his personality came through. check it out brotherman.
verbaltoxin: Dr Dreidel: HotWingConspiracy: Do christians grasp the folly of looking for proof of god?For some reason I get the sense that they used to, but no.I think it's silly but hey, a personal opinion by itself harms no one. It's when they try to strip science from science textbooks and replace it with myth that I get stabby.

stonicus: Now, why doesn't god smite down astronauts the way he did all the people who tried to build the Tower of Babel?
Ambivalence: exick: Every sentence I read makes me facepalm harder than the previous one. I'm going to need medical attention if I keep reading.Do you want us to have you commited? You seem to be engaging in self-harm.
wantingout: wasn't the big bang theory originally proposed by a catholic priest anyway? religion masquerading as science or something along those lines?
HotWingConspiracy: So you don't see the folly in looking for proof of god? Also, come off of your cross. Also, it was generally christians burning people at the stake for imagined slights against their god.
Mikey1969: Ironic that you come to fark to state your opinion about opinions...
vpb: To be fair, it's an opinion piece.

Fubini: Oh look, it's a religious person reconciling new scientific knowledge with their religion, not rejecting the science or asserting that Genesis literally happened.
DROxINxTHExWIND: Hey CNN:Finding out that there was a beginning =/= existence of a creator.
Fubini: There's a whole host of people here who condemn Christians when they reject science, and they reject Christians when they reconcile with science. The reality is that they just hate religion, or that they hate Christians, and they're just going to be dickwads about it whenever the topic comes up.
RoxtarRyan: The problem with people doing it in this fashion is that hey already stakes his claim to already have an answer for everything (his god), so when approached with new science, he then twists the evidence to support his "ultimate" answer. This isn't science. This is moving goalposts so no matter the evidence, your already existing bias is always correct.
exick: Yes because the belief that all the technical bits of the creation of the universe were left out of Genesis since the illiterate, Middle Eastern, goat herders would have been confused is a perfectly rational one and not worthy of ridicule.
GleeUnit: Second this. I'm reading the book now, it's a pretty fun and easy read. I'll have to check out that podcast too.
Fubini: exick: Yes because the belief that all the technical bits of the creation of the universe were left out of Genesis since the illiterate, Middle Eastern, goat herders would have been confused is a perfectly rational one and not worthy of ridicule.You're assuming that the Bible has to be literally correct.The Bible was never meant to be a technical how-to manual for creating the universe. You're the one arguing that it is.
ranold: Christians are farking stupid.
