Examiner sent out one of those auto-emails informing me that I got a new subscriber and that makes 14. On the entire WORLD WIDE web, I got 14 and the auto-email states, "You’ve got quite the fan club going." Yeah, right. Man, that is so depressing.
In 1983 AD astronomers Hisashi Hirabayashi and Masaki Morimoto, of the Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory, sent an email to the Altair solar system (16 light-years from Earth) and expect a reply early in 2015 AD.Hey, Hisashi and Masaki...
How do you, both, demand that God is superfluous because evolution explains life and also demand that evolution has nothing to say about life’s origins?
You become an Atheist evolutionist and refuse to be confused by your own inconsistency or by facts.
Here is an article on this issue: Darwinian evolution and life's origins, abiogenesis
FYI: I just finished posting a series dealing with an ubiquitously promulgated well within the box atheist talking point de jour which is the claim—popularized by Richard Dawkins, his cult of personality hero worship adherents, et al.—that “God did it” is a science stopper.
Imagine being so shockingly ignorant of 1) the very foundations upon which science is premised and 2) the fact that most of the world’s most erudite scientists have been Jews and Christians and you get a taste of what it is like to be a New Atheist.
Richard Dawkins stated that his new book The Greatest Show on Earth “is not intended as an antireligious book.” Well, considering that for him Darwinian evolution has always been about warding off God his intentionality came to naught as he simply could not help himself.
Considering that the book in expressed in atheistic evangelistic terms which run from “Evolutionary Theodicy” to the call to conversion to a “Grandeur View of Life” Dawkins has produced another anti-religious pro atheistic polemic.
Step 1: define “science” as only dealing with the natural / material.
Step 2: define “God” as supernatural / immaterial.
Step 3: conclude that there is no scientific evidence for God.
In this way, they not only conclude that there is no scientific evidence for God but they construct a worldview according to which it is literally impossible for there to be any scientific evidence for God.
You have to love the feisty self-important nature of a young student’s zeal without knowledge. Yes, they get a mere taste of freedom, abscond my good ol' mommy’s apron strings and after one or two classes are quite prepared to give the world what f'r.
Such is the title of a study conducted by Daniele Fanelli (INNOGEN and ISSTI-Institute for the Study of Science, Technology & Innovation, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom), “How Many Scientists Fabricate and Falsify Research? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Survey Data,” PLoS ONE—Accelerating the Publication of Peer-Reviewed Science.
As stated in part 1, the typical New Atheist fallacies committed by Christopher Hitchens during his debate with Jay Richards are further compounded by the laymen New Atheists as exampled throughout the internet. In this case, I will consider the picture perfect example of a fallacy compounder in the form of Aidan Maconachy (from his article "Christopher Hitchens Debates Creationist Jay Richards") a DHDH Meme carrier (for Dennett-Harris-Dawkins-Hitchens).
I have witnessed it time and time again; the deleterious effect of the New Atheist movement. This movement has popularized a particular polemical tactic whereby being vociferous, emotive, belittling, making assertions, and concocting arguments from outrage and arguments for embarrassment and for ridicule replace reasoned discourse.
They have been contaminated by the DHDH Meme (for Dennett-Harris-Dawkins-Hitchens).
