Should Evolutionists Be Allowed to Vote?
Skeeve
Found this at [url=http://dailykos.com/]Daily Kos[/url], and while it's from 2008, I'd still like to post it. I'm sure not much has changed in the minds of those that wrote it.

I don't know who The Creation Science Association for Mid-America are, but they are quite the intellectuals.

Evolutionism was/is the apologetic foundation for the faith of
predatory capitalism, Germany in WWI, the USSR (from 1918 to
this day), NAZI Germany, Fascism in other European countries,
and Socialism in all of Eastern Europe beginning about 1945. It
was also a major justification in the defense of slavery in the
1800's against Christian opponents. In those nations evolutionist,
anti-Christian, anti-creationists killed more people, from the late
1800's to today, than all the wars combined for the last 2000 years.
Evolution formed the apologetic framework for justifying the
harshest of cruelties during this period as well.
This is not to say that evolution is the only excuse for human
cruelty, merely that a logically consistent pursuit of evolutionary
theory has been used to justify atrocious crimes on the grandest
scale in human history. Obviously one might argue that the grand
scale was enabled largely by modern technology. True enough,
but the technology did not kill anyone, nor did it have any motive
to do so. The motive and the killing was done by Homo Sapiens,
the technology was only a tool.

- They do not and can not know the purpose for Man. In
fact, all of them believe Man has no purpose.

- Therefore, they cannot make informed judgments about
how men should behave toward each other, or what would
be "good" or "bad" for any group of men to do, or not do.

- Thus, they have no sane foundation upon which to base

So the "magical occurance [sic] of the first self-replicating life form" is criticized as an "atheist claim", but the intervention of a god to cause it to happen explains it all away? But of course!

Sounds like the ramblings of a froot loop to me.

Christians are fags. /thread

My brother who died last year was a 'fag' and thoroughly atheist.
 
Supernaut
Fag atheists (like myself and Skeeve) are what make the world turn! Your brother (sorry to hear about your loss) was no doubt a hell of a guy!
 
catman
Oh, I took no offense. Yes, he was a hell of a guy, and extremely intelligent, which worked against him since he couldn't suffer fools gladly. He scored 1590 out of 1600 on the GRE!

What is a GRE? Impressive percentage though.

TE - Depending on the situation a GRE is either a Graduate Record Examination or a Great Rectal Exam.

It was the Graduate Record Exam, which one must take to get into grad school, although he may have had the other one as well. In any case, a score of 1350 places one in the top 2% and is accepted for membership in Mensa, so 1590 of 1600 is ridiculously high.

Did you forget you wrote that twice there catman? So that is in the genius realm quite easily, was mensa membership IQ of 140 and above?

Maybe it's just an echo.

Pfft
 
catman
Yeah, I was having trouble with my Jurassic computer. I removed one of the posts. (Echo removed, now it's anechoic again.)

I'm not really sure what the IQ level one is supposed to be to get into Mensa is. I just remember that 1350 or higher on the GRE qualified. IQ is such a slippery subject. I think Mensa uses different scores on different IQ tests.

There is the guy Chris Langdon or Landon (something like that) who reports his own IQ as above 200, who babbles on about a mathematical proof for god.

I see huge problems with the IQ tests.
 
catman
A high IQ sometimes means that one has a very vivid imagination. And I immediately suspect anyone who brags about his IQ, as if that lends credence to his fever dreams.

There are huge problems with IQ tests in my opinion as well. They are necessarily biased, culturally and otherwise.

I think we have a thread here somewhere with a link to an IQ test. When I took it, I think I scored relatively high, which is proof they're not all that accurate. Pfft

IQ is too small a word to search for, but I did find this thread from earlier in the year.

I'll look later for the link, wifi at work sucks.
