DeNews and the rabbis continue their sinful ways:

 
Quote
Rabbi pleads with Darwinian atheists: Turn back from legal pedophilia. But they can’t.


1.  DeNews sees no difference between journalism and propaganda and thereby ignores the commandment against bearing false witness.

2.  Various celebrity clergy are quick to smear atheism for implying amorality and hence permitting pedophilia.  They ignore the evidence that religious belief does not provide an insurmountable barrier to pedophilia which brings to mind a saying about glass houses and stone-throwing.

3.  Even worse is that, while the Lord took care to prohibit things like taking His name in vain, making graven images or coveting the neighbor's ox, He apparently overlooked the small matter of abusing children - or maybe He didn't consider it such a big deal.

4.  They all sidestep the is/ought problem and the Euthyphro Dilemma.

There is now a rising flood of free -- much of it amateur [or pseudo-amateur] -- Internet pornography, just a simple Google search away. All you have to do is make a simple mistake in a search and the links to the most graphic, "hard core" porn sites will start to come up.

Well, sure. I don't know how many times I've tried to Google "Basic Astrophysics" and ended up at "Back Door Babes". Happens all the time. Even when my "safe search" filter is on, right Gorgo?

Happens to me too when I search "back door babe", that was that adorable moment in the movie Babe, when Babe the piglet tries to get into the farmer's house through the backdoor.

I don't regret the searches, though. It seems Gordo* has something against sex. How surprising...







*I am really reluctant about that nick. For me Gordo has always been Leroy Gordon Cooper, a hero of mine, even if he went crazy pants in his later years.

Also make sure you spell "Toyota" correctly and I don't suggest "whitehouse.com"

Serious question:  what misspelling of Toyota should I be using in my "research"?

Shows how little you need to know to be a simulator jock:

1)  take a guess, based on what has worked previously.
2)  run the sim,
3)  tweak a parameter or two,
4)  re-run the sim.
5)  continue trial and error until it works.

Hmm,  where have I seen this mindless procedure work before?

Hmm... Joe seems to still think that our 'debate' was about evolution.  Him and medplex are upset because I never did define evolution.

Of course, I stated that I agreed with all of Joe's definitions of evolution EXCEPT the strawman one that is the only one he actually argues against.  When called on that definition and asked to find a single reference that used it, he ran away.

Is it any surprise that what we used to call lumpen proletariat elements would soak in the atmosphere of amorality and resort to nihilistic, opportunistic looting; without being able to quote Nietzsche. Why should they, it was all written into their school books and the teacher’s scripts for classes, it was trumpeted all over TV, it was in the papers and it was on the net.


Er, right-o. Nailed that on the head.

Not at all - Jesus specifically commanded "Suffer the little children", and the Vatican is merely trying its utmost to ensure that they do.

Just started watching a documentary called Mystical Brain.  In the first few minutes it quotes O'Leary's Spatula Brain coauthor Mario Beauregard:
Quote
We lived in the country.  I had lots of time to think.  Already when I was young, I had an inner certainty that the essence of human beings, the soul if you will, was a phenomenon linked to the brain, but was not the brain.  One could not be reduced to the other.  As a child, I thought, "When I grow up, I'll become a scientist, and I'll demonstrate that."

It's a nice summary of the ID attitude toward science: "I already know the Truth.  I can't be wrong. Science's job is to confirm what I know, and by God, I'll twist and mangle it until it does."

That antibiotic resistance likely jumped from the soil bacteria to disease-causing bacteria.

You mean, it was due to jumping genes, not Darwinian evolution?

Remember when failure to believe that Darwinian evolution is the cause of antibiotic resistence was supposed to endanger the nation’s health? Quaint.

I just headdesked so hard, I feel slightly concussed.

Druid is a Boomchicken because I'm too chickenshit to try healing, although I AM dual specced for it.

I play on the US Bloodhoof server, as does Deadman.  Both Alliance.  I don't get to raid any more because of this absolute shit satellite ISP I have here in the sticks of Washington State.  650 latency is a GOOD day for me.  Normally it's 800-2k so the lag is too much for even random instances, much less raiding.  I used to OWN Icecrown Citadel, back before I moved.  Waaaah!

I'll tell you our toons' names if you care to look us up.  Deadman raids pretty regularly and is a bit of a gear whore, even if he denies it.  He's even a Defender of A Shattered World, the bastard!   :angry:
