Responding to Christian [nonsense] 0001

Here I'll respond to some t-shirts form Virtuous Planet.

First, I'll let Snopes deal with the laminin molecule.

We'll start, of course, with the homophobic propaganda.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I support Civil Rights! Blacks should have the same right as whites do to marry someone of the same race!

See this comic from I Drew This.

This was listed under "Funny"!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Christians: Strenghtening marriage by protecting it from people that want to get married. Although, if you aren't changing anything, wouldn't that technically be keeping its strenght the same? And if we'd never redefined marriage, interracial marriage would still be illegal. Hell, blacks wouldn't've been allowed to marry at all!

This is strengthening marriage the same way genocide strengthens the human race: eliminate a whole class of it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We do not live in a theocracy. Your particular God's law does not apply here. Some churches are fine with gay marriage, If you want to get your way, you must present it in a secular manner. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who's keeping score? Evolution's winning everywhere:

in the Supreme Court

in schools

in the genetic record

in the fossil record

et cetera.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They already have.

...

Wait, I didn't see that human print in the middle; black doesn't show on dark brown. The "finders" of that example admitted to faking it to con tourists out of their money.

Though, even if humans and dinosaurs walked together, they could've done so millions of years ago. False dichotomy!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay... Let's see...

My God, The Almighty Grxfg'ftevgë, has a bigger penis than your God. She also has the power to defy all laws of the Universe. Necromancy is not a very impressive feat for a God. And, no matter how powerful you imagine your God to be, he is still imaginary.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And:

Only one road leads to Muhammad.

Only one road leads to Thor.

Only one road leads to the Invisible Pink Unicorn.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I assume you're referring to the Scientific Method? Perform repeatable experiments that support your idea, use it to make predictions, submit it for peer review, and we'll see if it stands up to scrutiny. If it does, you'll probably win the Nobel Prize! Since your claim is supernatural and basically equates to "Magic Man dunnit", it will not last long.

Your idea is not even useful. How did Magic Man do it? Many Christians think God did it through natural processes. That's because 100% of the evidence supports the current scientific explanation. If we found any contrary evidence that couldn't be explained by the current theory, we'd alter the theory. That's how science works.

Also, "Darwinism" does not exist. If it does, then I am a proud Newtonist.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technically, humans are apes. This isn't evolution; this is basic taxonomy. We are all members of the Hominoidea superfamily.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, come on!

This is based on an ancient three-tiered vision of the sky. If this were true, spacecraft would've flown through a magically floating ocean and ended up in heaven. What did they find instead?

The firmament does not exist.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Science is, by definition, the study of the observable, the knowable, the repeatable, the explainable, the demonstratable, the natural world. The supernatural is not science by definition.

you know NOTHING of you "Theory of evolution" so do some research because if you knew anything. If the world knew anything, scientists have found evidence that has totally reversed EVERYTHING they have ever thought about evolution. so read some books and go to church. YOU NEED IT
