It's kind of frustrating seeing people bash Christians and saying people are blithering idiots just for being religious


I used the phrase "blithering idiots", so I`m assuming I`m the target of the false claim you make, above.

I used the phrase "blithering idiots" to refer to people who think that a theory is just a guess and becomes a law if it turns out to be proven true. Which, obviously, is not the same as "being religious".

Are you just making things up in order to falsely pass yourself off as a victim in order to gain power? That is an effective tactic for a Christian in the USA, so it`s not surprising that some use it.

I don`t think that being religious makes someone a blithering idiot, although being a blithering idiot makes being religious a lot easier because being religious *requires* you to set aside thinking in favour of faith and obedience.

"2 chapters into a book on the philosophy of science and all you can say is that any theory is highly probable but never true."

Never proven true. It's a fundamental principle of the scientific method, not a flaw. The religious approach is to declare a fabrication to be an absolute truth and pretend not to listen when evidence mounts to the contrary. That`s not only a flawed theory but a flawed methodology.

All life saving medication should have bold warning labels saying "Treatment invented based partly on the science of evolution; taking this medication indicates your rejection of the bible"
