Reasoning is always valid, because it relies on facts. Reasoning is a process; not a destination. Reasoning is always open to new perspectives. Reasoning is a straddle; not equivocal. Reasoning is not a firm adherence to fairy tales but an attempt to investigate nature and its working.

Not everyone believes in the fairytale of Monkeys being your great great great great great great grandparents. How do you know your reasoning is valid???
BTW Matt Dillahunty is very strong in his faith.


If you had bothered to read anything about evolution, then you would know that the scientific world does not say we are descended from monkeys, just that we have a common ancestor. So, before you come on here and spout shit about something you know nothing about, actually do some research so we can have an intelligent debate.

Not an idiot. Judging by the name I would say lunatico.

What has your fucking god got except a poorly written old book which has been trashed by modern archaeology.

Get your head out of your ass and your bible and learn something. I promise, it won't hurt.

Reason number 67951.32 x 10159 why creationists make me hang my head in shame for being part of the same human race.

Go to the creationist museum in Kentucky and look at the ground. It sits on on of the most fertile geologic formations in the USA and one where numerous fossils have been found. Oddly enough, some fossils were found there by the construction crews yet the idiots still deny evolution.

On another note I almost died laughing when I saw the dinosaur with a saddle. Now THATS comedy!

While we all here agree that child rape is wrong, there are lots of people(including religious types) who don't think it is.

If it was an absolute, EVERYBODY would consider it wrong.

Since they don't it is not an absolute wrong.

In fact since anything you or I consider to be wrong is considered to be right by someone, somewhere, ipso facto there cannot be such a thing.

Therefore, morality is subjective.

Yeah in many muslim countries those twelve year old girls who are raped are then forced to MARRY their rapists. Let's not forget the age at which women used to be forced into marriage. Yeah I'll bet all those twelve year old girls were willing participants. And aren't these wonderful progressive arguments for the positive change that has occured in society once the influence of religion was final lifted. Lastly, on the issue of child molestation all I will say is this: the ancient Greeks. You know what I mean.

I am really starting to think that someone out there is pointing people in our direction. I think at least a couple of them have said that they were referred here, and they all seem to be spouting equally poor quality arguments. There's a conspiracy afoot...

The best conspiracies are those of complete disorganization and empty headed-ness in motion.
