Jeeeeeeeeeesus Christ this is Rich Tard.
|SteveG: “If the universe does not operate under predictable rules, then there is no way we can ever really know anything about it.”|
ASALTYDOG: That’s exactly your problem. How do you know that the universe operates under predictable rules? Because if you can’t know that, as you admit, there is no way you can have science. Given your world view, then, how do you account for the predictability of nature?
You no can haz scince. God says Me haz scinec, betr wurld vew.
Hey, just in case you were wondering.
|ASALTYDOG: Rest assured that I belong precisely to the group of people who believe that the scientific evidence supports Biblical Creationism.|
Oh we are assured son. No doubt.
Hang on to your tard-hats. This one stretches the skin.
|SteveG: “Do we agree that the universe works, for the most part, by understandable and predictable natural laws (even if we don’t necessarily fully understand all of them?)”|
ASaltyDog: “I have no idea from what pocket you have drawn these natural laws, but of course it must be a trick. I deny your concept of natural laws. I do believe that as a rule God faithfully does things in predictable ways. On what grounds do you believe there are such things as natural laws?”
SteveG: “On the grounds that when I drop my keys in the parking lot, they never hang in midair. They always fall. But as I said at the top, perhaps we’re talking about the same thing using different vocabularies.”
ASALTYDOG: That’s not the same thing as showing that there are natural laws. You have not seen any natural law walking loose in your parking lot, trust me. You have only seen some keys dropping a few times. Will the keys fall the next time you drop them?
Whoever said this was about repealing the enlightenment, collect your prize now.
|ASaltyDog: “Sorry, no neutral nor common ground here either. I don’t believe there are any natural laws governing tree growth. I do believe God makes trees grow. How do you know there are natural laws governing tree growth?”|
SteveG: “I was mistaken, you’re right …. we do have no common ground. Unless you are playing some elaborate practical joke, which I really hope is the case.”
ASALTYDOG: Knock, knock. Anybody home? I ask questions, I get no answers.
We used to call that "Proud, to be stupid" where I came from. Except I ain't really where I come from, no more.
|SteveG: “Find me one shred of evidence that dinosaurs and dogs lived at the same time.”|
ASaltyDog: “Easy: the zoological, historical, and soteriological implications of the biblical revelation. In short, if dinosaurs and dogs didn’t live at the same time, I would still be in my sins. But I am not in my sins, so therefore dinosaurs and dogs must have lived at the same time.”
That's Right. QED QED QED QED QED QED QED QUEERED
I can't bear to report any more.
This thread is one delicious mine of Jesus fighting amongst hisself for the prize of dumbest particle in His Body. We have old women calling ordained baptist ministers 'atheist'. I pretty much cowered as it was over my head, like the battle of atlanta.
