[In a review of Victor Stenger's book "God: The Failed Hypothesis"]
Victor Stenger is a physicisist [sic.] and therefore does not have the values and common-sense way of talking that me and my friends have - this angers me.Yes, and I'm annoyed when others don't share my hobbies, politics, or favorite color. But anger? And the leap to assuming that his dedication to scientific method negates any values or accessible rhetorical style he may have? Faulty at best. Probably the poster is just trying to say that Stenger doesn't appreciate the ignorance of himself and his friends, and that's not cool.
What makes me even angrier is that Victor seems to think that just by knowing "stuff" he can show that the gospels are wrong and there is no God.Oh, the pointlessness of actually "knowing stuff"!
He should be more humble and admit that me and my friends are 100% right that God exists and that science cannot explain mysteries such as thought or how birds fly.Er, no - it's the person who thinks he's 100% right who is actually in need of humility. You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Only through the eyes of faith can we really understand that Stenger doesn't know what he's talking about, because by believing in Jesus we strengthen our beliefs that we have the answers and Stenger and secular humanists should stop dissing us - this is a Christian country and they are guests.Oh, I get it - by believing, you strengthen your beliefs that you're right, which gives you more to believe, and believing in those enhanced beliefs even further strengthens your beliefs...damn, I have a headache.
Also, do not think that the false guess of evolution is true, because Charles Darwin thought of that while on opium and never practiced good science like Jesus and the apostles did.Hey! The New Testament is now a science book, apparently. Though I don't remember the passage on "And if the poor have not a Bunsen burner, provide your own unto him, for he who shares not his scientific apparatus shall not pass into MIT..."
If evolution were true, Jesus would have told us about it, since he didn't Darwin was wrong and animals have always existsed the way they do now (except dinosaurs- people photoshopped pictures of them and fooled everyone and they never existed.)Look at all that is false around us! Jesus also never mentioned television or the iPod or drive-thru super-sized meals or miniature golf or skateboards or microwave popcorn! Mind-blowing, isn't it? I'd text you about it right now except Jesus never told us about texting.
The poster also seems to think that dinosaur fossils, reconstructed skeletons and artists' renderings didn't exist before Photoshop. Someone telex this poor wingnut a clue.
