science is SO not a religion. (religiorant)   Leave a comment


FACTS:
* Evolution is not a religion
* Science is not a religion
* Atheism is not a religion

Anyone trying to make these sound like they are some sort of doctrine that is followed to guide us through life is seriously fucked in the head.

Science is about facts – or rather about facts as best as we know them – therefore the sciences are bound to change – Science adapts – Science figures stuff out the best it can and then adapts some more as our technology improves – on the other hand, doctrines like the bible don’t change – if they did change, people could lose their faith because the bible isn’t supposed to change!

Who gives a rats arse about whether there are gaps in the “evolutionary chain”!! That’s part of the wonder of science! If we had it all figured out, sheesh, what would we do then? Oh I’m sorry we can’t account for four billion years of developing life on earth can we? Oh I’m sorry the “gap theory” of evolution only partially explains the what and the why of how we came to be by giving *actual* evidence.. yes it’s not complete – yes there are gaps in the evidence.. but..

Lets examine what the alternate theory says, shall we?

It says god did it… with NO evidence what so ever!!

BAHAHAHAHHA!

how dumb is that?… nothing at all in the bible is verifiable, *nothing*

sure there are some off hand references throughout history to the events that took place, but seriously, is that enough to regard it as fact? You can have faith in the bible – good for you – but to pass off a book from before the dark ages as some sort of fact is just plain stupid. oh and don’t forget that the adamant following of the bible was what caused the dark ages in the first place, by the way…

nothing at all in the bible should be regarded as fact – it’s been translated so many times to take it literally is foolish – sorry to say it, but it’s also irresponsible to all of humanity to perpetuate myths as fact, let alone perpetuate the bible as some sort of a scientific way of thinking!

Sure, great, you can get some good stuff out of what Jesus said and some of those commandments are sensible but that is not enough for me..

The bible is the ultimate gap theory – except it’s far worse than that, as it’s not just a gap theory, it’s more like an empty chasm vacuum theory filled with stories and parables – it’s the complete lack of utter evidence theory – it’s the “la la la la la god did it la la la la la” theory – it’s the stick your fingers in your ears and be ignorant approach to science. Which is the exact opposite of what Science is about.

Science is so NOT a religion

What I believe…. (No. 3 – religion+god+jesus)   Leave a comment

religion and god are things made up by man to explain away things that we don’t understand.

A theory, if you will: When ancient man found how to make fire, perhaps by striking two rocks together to make a spark, ancient man would have been familiar with lightning (a really big spark), so a logical conclusion to their primitive minds may have been that lightning was made by some being striking two rocks together in the sky and why would they believe anything else without proof to the contrary? I mean what did they think causes the thunder sound anyway? Two big rocks striking each other in the sky could very well cause the sound that we know of as “thunder” these days. Except we know that isn’t the case thanks to our current technology.

The point is that after a few hundred or perhaps even thousands of years, this ‘speculation’ that some invisible creature was making lightning and thunder has “stuck” and it has become some sort of fact that everyone accepts because they don’t know any better. This is no different to the bible.

Where was god before humans made him up?

What gives man the right to make up new gods anyway? That in itself is conceded and arrogant.

If you want to worship something and make it sacred, frikking worship the very Earth you walk on!! At the very least looking after the planet we live on looks to the future instead of the bible/christian idiocy of “subdue the earth” until it’s used up and then Jesus will come back and fix everything!

And by the way, who says Jesus’ second coming hasn’t already been and gone already?

What happens to those who have preached togetherness in the past? Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Jesus, John Lennon… and lots more… these people stood for peace between all peoples and yet they were killed for promoting peace. The truth is that Jesus could come and go and everyone would most likely think that he was a looney, in fact he could very well be currently locked up inside a nice padded cell in a drug induced stupor, with drool dribbling out the corner of his mouth right now…
