Creationists say the cutest things

Guy P. Harrison sent me this: 22 Messages From Creationists To People Who Believe In Evolution Here are my answers. Of course. No. Almost completely. No. Rotation of the earth. They don’t. What about them? Deriving meaning is up to the individual. No: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis That’s pithy and dumb. Who embraces it? Wrong. Sure, but tangentially. …

Explaining scientific understanding to a creationist

Got this email:   My biggest question for you guys is… How do you believe that we (and by we, I mean the entire earth and all of its contents) are here? Of course Christians, like myself, believe in the 7 Days of Creation. I’m watching your television show (your showdown with Ray Comfort) and …

In an email mood

sbemail

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. Round OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEE! Subject: If you believe science!!! then research Refer to this http://www.creationworldview.org/aboutus.asp Yep. Bad science done by ideologically driven people.

Scientific cluelessness and idle threats

That’s what we are getting with a recent string of emails from a fellow who signs off every message as “Kevin the Creationist.” Apparently Kevin called the show in 2012, and since then he’s periodically been sending us email trying to tell us about exciting new evidence for a young earth.

We get email: The difference between being unreliable and 100% wrong

Climate change “skeptics” in the creationist role

We received an email from a relatively new atheist who is still coming to grips with various science-related issues now that he’s shed his theism.  He wrote: After de-converting I’ve started reassessing some long held political beliefs that were based on my old religious beliefs. I’ve found that when I look at things from a …

Being an atheist doesn’t excuse you from doing your homework

Over on Camels With Hammers, Daniel has reminded us of several temptations that atheists should watch out for. It’s excellent advice, starting with this. We atheists need to remind ourselves that figuring out that the interventionist gods of the major religions are false is a fairly easy intellectual discovery. We are not geniuses or especially …
