I see Afarensis is wearing the scarlet letter too.  Jeez freaking louise, are there any sciencebloggers that aren't atheists?  Is that a prerequisite??!


Now you say

I said I'm looking for a theist....personally, deists don't cut it in my book.
We don't care if Episcopalians don't cut it in your book, in reality, where the rest of us live, deists aren't atheists.

Yes, you did scoop me. And if the nickname Sternberger Story catches on, Blipey and I will show up on your lawn and there'll be hell to pay. Trust me. Nothing is so menacing, so fear-inducing, as a clown and a drunk triathlete.

There are about 70 people blogging at ScienceBlogs.com. How many of them, FtK, have displayed the atheist logo?

Rob Knop of Galactic Interactions is a Christian.

Added in edit: Here's a post that provides evidence.

That's a very interesting post of Rob's.

Quote
So imagine this queasy cognitive dissonance. Here are things that are directly in contradiction with what the Bible says. Well, as a modern thinking person, it's really not very difficult to accept that a literal reading of the Bible is childish and nonsensical; heck, one only need read a couple of chapters into the Bible itself before you have to go into contortions trying to maintain that the Bible is consistent with itself. If the Bible is to be read as a central set of writings around which our faith is based, there's a pretty strong tipoff that we're supposed to think harder about it than accept it mindlessly from the fact that (a) the Bible is self-inconsistent, and (b) a literal reading of the Bible as "what happened" is blatantly at odds with what we know to be true through other avenues of inquiry.

How do we hold on to something? Some lose their faith. I've seen it happen; kids, especially kids who are raised in fundamentalist families who insist on special creation and a 6,000-year-old world, get to college. They struggle. Some figure out that there is no way to reconcile their beliefs with full participation in the modern world... and they lose their faith altogether. You hear some on the Christian Right bemoaning how "secular" colleges are destroying their children's faith, but in reality the problem is that they didn't do a very good job of providing a religious education to their children. They taught them a form of faith that is childish and backwards, and incompatible with modern knowledge. No wonder that the kids didn't hold on to it when their minds were opened to other things!

Yeah, yeah, I meant ScienceBlogs...silly IDiotic me.  I'm gonna go try to find me a theist out of that bunch...anyone wanna place bets as to whether there are any?

Yes, please I would like to bet you a lot of money that there are theists at Science Blogs!

I know for a fact that there is at least one:  Rob Knop.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Mark Chu-Carrol of Good Math, Bad Math is also a theist of some type.  

I'm sure there are more that I don't know about.

edit:  I see that I was beaten to the punch.  Oh well.  We can all split the take, right guys?

Typo? Luskin was talking to a reporter. I don't think writing implements had anything to do with that.

I've told FtK before that I'm not investing anything in obtaining her approval.

Duh! It was a mental typo, Ed. Like that fella who said "creationism" when he meant "ID" on the TV..

I wrote Kyle Miller, lead author on the article, asking him to confirm the quote. Kyle says it was their slip-up, so I have updated the PT article to let everyone know that.

Good job, Wesley. That's a lot easier than simply deleting the post or posting a bunch of crap until the article disappears from the page.

In a piece titled Lacking a Middle-Ground, the Swiss Devolve into Evolutionary Dogmatism, Casey the Earth scientist laments the rejection of young-Earth creationism by a school district in Switzerland and pleads for the introduction of ID as a middle ground.  I like this line in particular:
 
Quote
Since young earth creationism is so controversial, the article reports that “[t]he school authorities in canton Bern quickly revised the brochure included in the textbook” and removed the young earth creationist materials, leaving students to be told that “evolution has been proven beyond all reasonable doubt.”

Casey, wake up!  YEC isn't controversial, it's brain-dead.

And this line from the article at swissinfo, quoted by Casey, really caught me by surprise:
Quote
According to Scheidegger, evangelical Christian churches are the driving force behind a literal translation of the book of Genesis and the rejection of evolution.

Ya don't say?!!

It appears Casey Luskin is not happy about his picture being posted on the internet and has been rattling his lawyer sword at those who realize he is a public figure.

 



We should have a "Is Anyone Dumber Than Casey Luskin Day" where everyone who owns a blog does a story using their favorite (dumbest) Luskin quote ever and of course post his picture.   Maybe whoever receives the most interesting threat from Luskin wins a prize or something.





This is Luskin at a recent Amway for Jesus Festival, here he draws those circles we all love to see and hear about to potential converts:
