Reading Time: < 1 minute Ha ha! Frank has been commenting here for a few weeks and has not added much to any discussion other than annoying and unwarranted assertions. He never backs any claim up whatsoever with his short, inane comments. Andy nailed it when he said: You have written over 13000 comments on DISQUS based forums, and, if […]
Reading Time: 6 minutes As Promised, the concluding part to the other day’s blog post. Is there really no overlap between the domains of science and religion? Taken at face value, the claim that the domains of science and religion are completely non-overlapping is flat out wrong. As I have shown in the last section, Christianity has made scientifically testable […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes Can science and religion coexist in harmony? A favorite phrase of sophisticated theologians™ is – science tells us how and religion tells us why. But it is not only theologians who claim that there can be no conflict between properly understood science and religion because they deal with different questions. Many scientists, and not only religious ones, support this […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes Brilliant, form the present thread here: Being a biologist, I usually give people like you the benefit of the doubt and try to correct their misconceptions about evolution without insulting them personally or questioning their intelligence. However, several people have already done that very well in this thread, but you chose to steadfastly cling to […]
Reading Time: < 1 minute I have made sticky (sent to the top of the blog post list) the post Andreas Schueler wrote about the biological aspects of personhood, life and thus the ramifications on views on abortion. The post is excellent and reflects issues with nominalism and realism: how we attach abstract, conceptual labels to real, material things. And […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes This post will be split into two parts due to its length. This will allow any posters to be able to interact with certain points as we go. Regards, Andreas Schüler.
Can science and religion coexist in harmony ?
A favorite phrase of sophisticated theologians™ is – science tells us how and religion tells us why. But it is not only theologians who claim that there can be no conflict between properly understood science and religion because they deal with different questions. Many scientists, and not only religious ones, support this view as well.
Reading Time: < 1 minute Good ole Andy. Always says sensible stuff. Well, this one pops up fairly often in conversations with IDers. Andy uses it to good effect. I thought I would repeat it here as a foil to anybody who asserts that Intelligent Design is any sort of proper theory, with any sort of predictive power. “So an […]
Reading Time: < 1 minute Quote of the Day from Andy Schueler:
Oh, and I also like the “my mom” argument, which I just made up 😀
Reading Time: 4 minutes Recently, Zytigon, a skeptic who comments on Debunking Christianity, noticed a comment on a anthropogenic global warming denial blog entry by a Johnathan Pearce, thought it was me, understandably. The spelling, though, is slightly different and this person was not me. I support the scientific consensus on global warming agreed by an overwhelming proportion of scientists in the relevant fields.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Yup, you heard it here. The plagues. God getting involved right up to his neck in magic stuff. People and animals dying all over the shop. Frogs; gnats; darkness; rivers of blood; boils; hail; firstborns of Egyptian families and animals dying. AND THEN the army getting destroyed by a parted sea coming down on their heads.
