"So these are the only two examples you can find of Christian extremism’. But the Westboro Baptist People are not bombing public transport or murdering infidels"
1 John 3:15 (KJV): 'Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.'
KKK. IRA. Timothy McVeigh. Scott Roeder. And more besides.
Fred Phelps & the WBC. They hate. And according to their own beliefs, they = Terrorists.
As for you, you and all your ilk are worse-than sinners in need of recanting your hateful 'beliefs' and a new life like Jonathan Edwards. He is no longer a sinner who doesn't believe in the power(lessness) of 'prayer'.
That's a start.
The only hilarious’ thing about our post on Michael Gove forbidding teaching of Creation or Intelligent Design was how all the evolutionists promised mountains of evidence’ for evolution and when pressed, didn’t have any at all.
"Michael Behe was given literally a mountain of evidence (the stack of books and articles was several feet high) just on the evolution of the immune system at the Kitzmiller trial. If you want to say, as he did, "OK, but it isn't good enough", that's fine . But don't say the evidence doesn't exist."
And where was P-G then - with his superior 'evidence' - to annihilate that presented by the plaintiffs in KvD, if he says we're 'Darwiniotards'...?!
He Could have just wheeled in an empty cage so as his 'God' (who of couuuuurse exists, natch! [/hyper-sarcasm]) could have just 'poofed' a creature completely new to science in there, to further annihilate Evolution's cause in that landmark court case. Therefore the question: Why didn't he...?!
But the mere fact that Cre(a)ti(o)nists were reduced to dredging up a supposedly credible scientist - a Professor of Biochemistry, no less - Michael Behe - demonstrated that KvD represented Cre(a)ti(o)nism's last, best hope for that particular 'agenda's continued survival, nay, it's right to exist. One of those books in that huge stack was one "Of Pandas and People"
A copypasta howler that was the final nail knocked into the coffin of the entire Atheism vs. Religion debate. And it's we Atheists wielding the hammer.
The rest of course, is history. Now you know why Conservative Christian Judge John E. Jones III (personally appointed to the Federal bench by Conservative Christian who believes in Creationism, George Dumbya Bush) made his decision:
'Darwin is inherently atheistic, thus shifting the debate from creationism vs. evolution to the existence of God vs. the non-existence of God'?
For someone supposedly as 'learned' & 'educated' as Phillip E. Johnson is supposed to be, he clearly never knew that in his early years, Charles Darwin was in training to be a member of the clergy in the Protestant Church of England, no less.
(Because of couuuuurse, o P-G, it's not as if you right-wing Fundamentalist Christians don't have an 'agenda' - http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94643&Page=2 - unlike we Atheists, eh?! [/mega-sarcasm])
And now you know, P-G, why the UK has the National Curriculum. And why - even in 'faith' schools - teaching the Big Bang and Evolution as fact is compulsory.
...but hey, you want to be educationally inferior to China, you go right ahead Dumbfuckistan. Only, don't take the rest of the normal, sane, non-fundie USA with you.
