I don't have to be tolerant of people claiming that magic is science the same way I don't have to be tolerant of people that are 40 and still believe in the tooth fairy.

You are free to believe that aliens seeded the planet but unless you have some actual science to work with don't whine to me how your idea is not taught in science class.

And you're free to believe that a bunch of gasses blowing up can create complex life forms and finding a bunch of bones in the sand conclusively proves there's no God,

Ain't freedom grand? :D

Why do you think that unless you believe in creationism, you don't believe in God? I have plenty of friends that think this way.

If you think that evolution consists solely of athiests digging up bones to prove a point, I am thinking that you may have gone to a school where creationism was a big deal in science class.

Whats even better is when gay marriage is the topic, the reason it's OK to hate it and not the other things in Leviticus is that the Old Testament is not relevant since Jesus came, but somehow the Creation story, which makes Leviticus look like a pretty reasonable explanation of how things should be in comparison, is still a lynchpin of the Christian faith.

I don't honestly care what you believe.

I'm bored with the whole discussion, honestly. But feel free to make a dozen more angry posts if it makes you feel better. I got better things to do (stuff I should have been doing for the last few hours instead of posting here) :(

Bottom line for me: Denying that alternate theories exist and saying that "it's not science unless you interpret it the way we say to interpret it" is a mark of intellectual cowardice.

All I read here is that if you believe in creationism, you can't be a scientist.

Almost 200 years of scientific research, coupled with actual proof that evolution is an ongoing and verifiable process is "intellectual cowardice", yet quoting from a book and saying "thats the way it is" is not. Brilliant.

The world can actually point to this specific thread and see why the US is getting dumber and dumber every year.

You are not known for actually comprehending what you read around here.

Oh and Mister Scot, just read the lengthy article I posted. I'm pretty sure the guy in there is not denying that creationism exists. I know it exists as well. It's just stupid and inane and devoid of ANY SCIENTIFIC work whatsoever.
