It would be unexpected and a refreshing change to get a few reasonably thoughtful responses to this bit of research...but i'll understand if ya can't be bothered reading so much at one time.
What would be unexpected and refreshing is if you tried to come across as a reasonably civilized human being, but I have a feeling that is beyond your capabilities.

"trying"....What? You think I didn't know you'll all would turn this into a playpen event. (check that herding instinct guys)

Are you lot so up yourselves?
so immature that you take this kind of "interaction" between online anonymous posters so seriously?

And you ask if I can come across as a 'reasonably civilised human being"? What ?.....does that mean you'd like me to kiss your arse & lick your balls at the same time? COme on...! Fair is fair..you go first!

& typing?.... you can do better than that...surely. What about showing off to your "likeminded" membersby 'critiquing' the research instead of my casual post that really isn't all that complex -I only gave 'hints' .

The research is there for you to 'work' on & if you can't be fucked..... & Its too hard for you.?..or are you too intellectually absorbed with this kind of 'tate tet'?
Its no biggie to me.





Here's a linkie http://richarddawkins.net/article,2293,n,n

Why not join in there?


There is a lot of shit science around.

Shit science ( SS ) is the 'science" taught at Christ-psychosis infected schools i,e Liberty Univ, Bob Jones Univ, Brigham Young univ, research institute, etc

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

I agree
but that's not what is meant. I"m not involved in religion. Nor do I have a 'knee jerk' reaction to this kind of statement ie. "a lot of shit science around" and become immediately defensive. I don't see it in black/white terms.
However, I understand that a lot of people online have been fucked over by religion.

No...'a lot of shit science' means that any 'science' needs to be approached objectively and requires critiquing by anyone who reads it . (just like any other product that is up for sale/consumption)

Science is not immediately 'safe' or 'scientific' just because it comes out of secular sources.

I don't know what we would do without you, pussy.

And here I was accepting anything that was published, just because it claimed to be "science". Live and learn.

Yep... I had a weak moment and felt sorry for the person who posted.

It sounds sad don't you think? That the 'atheists' on this board are confronted with such 'education' .
Oh and all that pitiful homeschooling!!!

Now....its interesting that you take my very simple statement so personally. As if it was just meant for you. Why is that?
Are you identifying yourself...your background with those "christ-psychosis infected schools'?
What is it you need to un learn?

Yellowsnow? whats that?........your religious past coming forth? Be afraid of the snow? Dare I not taste it?

What next ..a plague from the heavens?

Pussy, you are priceless! That is, no matter how low your price is, I wouldn't pay it.
