Not believing the right way

Found this interesting and apt, quote from Tom Wolfe:

Wolfe is currently working on his next book, a history of the theory of evolution from the nineteenth century to the present. He calls the big bang “the nuttiest theory I’ve ever [more]

Re: A True Mystery

My ultimate conclusion is that the path of humanity will do as it has always done. We will believe horrible things, do profoundly great and wonderful things, hurt people, love people, make a left turn for awhile, make a right, stop, start again, [more]

Re: Human mutations

The designer is still designing?

Don't see any reason why the breakdown of the original design would be considered "still designing", given:

Alice Cooper, Christian

Never knew this:

Alice Cooper, the shock-rock megastar who makes Marilyn Manson look like a choir boy, stopped his hard-partying ways and returned to his Bible Christian roots in the late 1980s and today, still hugely popular and [more]

Re: Marriage myths

Another perspective:

Earlier this month, The New York Times debunked the long-held myth that 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. But where exactly did that false statistic come from?

According to William Doherty, a [more]

I am pretty sure that I heard this about a year ago

Probably, the article is a year old almost ;-)

Marriage myths

You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce; 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers.

Re: Creationist Irony

Fundy coworker says that, too. But it's complete BS.

You don't think you are looking at the same data? (i.e. fish fossil)

Or, you don't think fundy and you are interpreting it differently?

Re: How ID is helping kill Christianity

It wouldn't surprise me if it turns out that the Discovery Institute and their highly publicized efforts against evolution were significant contributors to this result, particularly with respect to the millenials.
