GUEST,The Lamenting Whelk BS: Semantics: 'Accept' versus 'Believe' (127* d) RE: BS: Semantics: 'Accept' versus 'Believe' 21 Sep 11


Pete:

Thanks for illustrating my point perfectly. Creationists are trying to get their idea into classrooms to be taught regardless of the beliefs of those they are teaching, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist etc. They are intent of forcing a religious concept (in this case their creation myth) on people regardless, and that is very, very wrong indeed. Dressing it up as science is a cynical ploy and you have to wonder where these people's conscience is. Science does not do this, it teaches to question everything and realise you don't have all the answers yourself. It's a collective effort and that effort is spread over more than the lifetime of a single individual.

As for he Perry comments, you can argue the translation but that's a strawman and you know it. He calls himself a Christian but he's a killer. Perry has killed/murdered/is personally responsible for the deaths of over two hundred human beings, and if you believe that Christ was right and the bible is his word then you would not kill people, regardless. You're supposed to be compassionate and tolerant aren't you? State sanctioned murder is still murder, still killing human beings however you dress it up. For a lesson on compassion, check out Buddhist teachings - they've got the jump on this bizarre version of Christianity when it comes to respecting live and tolerance.

Of course I'm guessing your anti-science stance doesn't extend to everything. Like computers for example, or the benefits of medical science, or the telly, the car, electricity etc. It's just the bits that threaten you own belief system you refuse to accept. That's fine and your own choice, but don't advocate shoving it down the throat of everyone regardless.That's a consequence of fear, of a nagging doubt that you and all those other Creationists are wrong, not abiding blissfully in faith.
