Most days I just don’t have the patience to address the creationist emails we get. Then again, other days I just can’t resist baiting them, and many facepalms ensue.
Subject: If you believe science!!! then research

Yep. Bad science done by ideologically driven people. Always enjoy reading that stuff, thanks.
thanks for the quick response!!! so that is bad science is it?? but you choose to accept a theory, i underline theory
Like a lot of creationists who swallow this stuff, you seem to have some misunderstandings about the basic vocabulary of science. Like for instance, what “theory” means. A theory is a tested and confirmed framework for explaining a set of known facts. An idea that becomes a theory has already been through a lot of critical analysis and to a large extent been confirmed as true. Like the theory of gravity, or the germ theory of disease. Read all about it.
So what I’m saying is… please feel free to “underline theory” all you want.
that claims no God?? I wonder why that is?? Could it be it is in line with what governs modern society??
Now, *I* happen to agree with you that the rejection of God is the most plausible interpretation of scientific facts. But as I’ve shown you, it’s certainly not a necessary stance.
If as you claim we’ve evolved from Apes, i.e. we are animals, who or what gives you or anyone the right judge a “criminal”, i.e. murderer, rapist etc?? surely these people are only doing what an animal would do right??
We have that right based on the fact that we live in a society where we don’t wish to get murdered, raped, or robbed. The fact that people are animals does not, in any way, mean that people don’t have the right to band together and agree on rules that collectively protect us from harm. I wouldn’t enjoy living in a society without such laws, regardless of the imaginary friends that the people in such a society may or may not have. Would you?
I wonder who would profit from ascerting that there is no God?
People who care about whether they believe things that are true or not, would benefit from checking and verifying their beliefs. Intellectual honesty is the main motivation.
I only write out of concern mate! You are totally free to choose you belief, but if you scrape the thin layer that divides deception and truth you might find that there is in motion a deception in play. And yea God loves you too! even if it was just you, he would have come to die on that cross!
why the bible? because it is the only book that teaches of a sacrifice on behalf of mankind, if you can find another faith that teaches that come back, think about it! just one faith teaches so.
we by no means are better than another person including an athiest, a church isnt a bunch of holy people, no its a bunch of broken people by faith clining to a sacrifice paid for mankind.
we love you, we genuinely do! believe it or not.
God bless you man!!
Thank you for your concern. I understand that you very sincerely believe these stories that you are telling me, and I accept your interest in the spirit that it is offered. If you ever find some credible evidence to back up these faith-based beliefs, you be sure to let me know.
So you are a qualified scientist, yes??
No, I’m a software engineer. But the difference between you and me is that I understand the scientific method and process, and I accept the conclusions that mainstream scientists have reached. People who believe in creationism tend to be religious demagogues, who mostly have never even picked up a peer reviewed scientific journal, let alone published in one. There are a few notable exceptions, of course, but the overwhelming majority of scientists with relevant credentials recognize that life on earth evolved. So one of us, here, stands with mainstream science, and it’s not you.
So what you are in a saying that, If you have a book containing detailed instructions to build an aircraft for example, so according to your theory/belief, from having an instruction manual, you’re saying, without an external input, or design or any independent influence what-so-ever, A jumbo jet will appear out of thin air, right??
Of course I’m not saying that, because that isn’t how evolution works. And that’s the problem here: you’re ridiculing and dismissing a branch of science that you really don’t understand, and haven’t bothered to read about in any serious way. I could recommend plenty of science books that would clear up these misunderstandings. But I know you wouldn’t read them, so what’s the point?
Why would any evolutionist, perhaps holding doctrares and of great repute, would in his/her right mind, throw everything away and put everything on the line and come to the conclusion that evolution just isn’t scientific.
Well, on the one hand, they would do that because science thrives on proving things wrong. The quickest way to get a Nobel Prize is to do airtight research that overturns a previously accepted assumption. That’s what happened when Einstein discovered relativity.
On the other hand, evolution is extremely well understood and confirmed, and creationists are notorious for doing shoddy research and making conclusions based on their religious presuppositions. So most likely, a scientist who threw his lot in with that crowd would have a pretty rough uphill battle, due to the bad reputation that creationists have created for themselves. So you’re right — it wouldn’t be easy.
Thank you for your pleasant replies by the way.
All the best, just remember that God’s door waits open eagerly waiting for his sons and daughters to come home.
God Bless you and may you in your search find THE TRUTH!!!
God Bless you and your family!!
Yes, thank you again. And if Glinda the Good Witch of the North ever visits your house, may she grant all your wishes and give you some fashionable shoes.
