CrakrJak: No you f'ing mook. I'm saying you don't get to mix your faith into science. GTFO and stay out.

To be fair, you can be as stupid as this in the UK and still hold significant political office. But only in N.I.

He's almost certainly lying. He knows full well that the universe is very old, and that the earth was not created a few thousand years ago. He's shamelessly pandering to ignorance for political gain. It's disgusting, but it seems to work.

@carmium No, you just have the head of a religion as your supreme ruler with the power to shut down your parliament.

Guess who else is on the same Science Committee as this guy? Todd Akin.

CrakrJak:
Check the title: He's a member of the the House SCIENCE Subcommittee. That's inexcusable. We elect religious people all the time, but don't put fundies in charge of science funding and development.

It never ceases to amaze me how one of the most technologically advanced countries in human history can be half completely ignorant and crazy.

@CrakrJak: This guy isn't representing an individual belief, he's an elected official. And to purport being a scientist, suggest that the earth is about 9,000 years old and was built in 6 days, isn't exercising a right to faith, it's displaying a complete disregard for fact and borders the insane. Faith of this sort is an insult to my intelligence.

Even the Vatican doesn't have a stance this ridiculous on the origins of the earth.

And I'd stand by carmium's statement, if an elected Politian in NZ or Australia was filmed saying something this axiomatically stupid, they be laughed out of the houses of parliament, and likely asked to resign by their party leaders.

jtrebowski: I don't demand that anyone "should accept a belief based on faith". I'm no evangelist, don't really care what you believe.

Defending one owns faith on IAB is not the same as forcing it on others. What you believe doesn't concern me, as long it doesn't include spreading falsehoods about my faith.

carmium:
If this was Canada (for example) he'd get his ass kicked out of caucus so fast it'd make his pea brain rattle around his skull.


So you're saying Canada doesn't respect the right of an individual to their faith? I seriously doubt your claim.

Utter hogwash. First off science isn't a 'belief system' even though many substitute it for religion. Secondly, there are millions of scientists around the world that are from many different faiths. Thirdly, that sort of 'all-or-nothing' attitude is what is really incompatible.'

nah, all religion is self delusional and denies the truth

You Americans are generally nice, good people who went to school. How and why do you tolerate this kind of idiocy in your government? If this was Canada (for example) he'd get his ass kicked out of caucus so fast it'd make his pea brain rattle around his skull.

CrakrJak: "Once again your stupidity ceases to amaze me."

Yet, you people are the ones that claim we should accept a belief based on faith, yet you demand "proof" from us. Sorry....you lose.

@CaptKangaroo I repeat both Barry and Mittens profess to be Christians. See what I said earlier.

And this whackadoodle has a hand in running the nation.
I put forth the proposition that religious nuts of all the supersti- er, I mean faiths, be gathered up and transported to the middle of nowhere to duke it out amongst themselves. We then nuke the 'winners'.

@Gerry1of1 both Barry and Mittens profess to be some flavor of Christian or another. Guess they should go too. As I understand it, and I don't profess that I do, China has an atheist government with atheist politicians. You could probably get a visa.

Although "as recently as April 2011, police raided a gay bar in Shanghai and detained at least 60 of its patrons overnight."

God probably told them to do it.

The US is the stupidest country on the planet.
There are so many of these idiots walking around and
we put them in positions of power. Maybe we deserve to
be wiped out. Political Darwinism. Survival of the fittest,
the countries able to adapt. We're going backwards.

madest: We need a law that only atheists can be on the science committee.


Once again your stupidity ceases to amaze me. You claim to be a liberal, but wish to censor everyone else's view but your own. You claim to be anti-war, yet champion Obama's war efforts.

I could spend a half-hour writing up all your contradictions, but it would do no good. You're a dyed-in-the-wool democrat even when it's not in your best interests to be.

markust123: Getting our own li'l private argument here. :)

Yes, I stated that somewhat fuzzy and, well, wrong the first time, English is not my primary language. I'll see if I can explain my thoughts better here.

What bothers me about it is that it addresses a very specific theological definition of God, and people are using it rather liberally out of context.

The quote refers to the logical extension of the God of the Gaps perspective; "if you define God as being in the unknown, you must be prepared to see him shrink due to science finding stuff out". It is a specific address to a specific definition, not a general statement about religion as a whole.

No. I hope you understand that the observable universe is the theoretical limit of all we can ever know about the universe given our current understanding of physics. We can never, never ever know anything about what lies beyond this.

This is a respected scientific model, and it places us smack bang at the center of the universe.

Why, where abouts does you place us, and what shape do you believe the universe to have that allows you to place us somewhere else in it?

Science clearly needs your help on this one.
