you have completely pissed us off

Published October 23rd, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Please do not take any offensive “hate mail” written by Christians as an example of Christianity. We are not very good Christians; we who use words of hate. You must understand, however, that you have completely pissed us off. This site is just stupid. The concept is stupid. I can give you evidence against evolution if you so desire.

I do sort of agree that ID should not be taught in schools, but neither should evolution. It is wrong that evolution, classified as SCIENTIFIC THEORY, is taught as a fact. Teaching evolution in schools is just as offensive to us as teaching ID in schools is to you. We are all people.

The majority of Christians do not want to press our beliefs upon anybody else. The same cannot be said for scientists, it appears. Plus, while Christians want to bring wayward people to God for the wayward people’s sake, scientists want to study and elaborate on evolution because they think they can discover something wonderful and get rich off of it. So, there is still a difference between the two sides.

I think this whole fight is futile. It is written that God’s children will be hated by all, and I can see that’s the way it’s going. Everybody hates Christians…

    This is the BIG mistake that keeps the argument going. Scientists only get rich if they find something WRONG with evolution. They do not hand out awards for doing experiments that confirm what we already know. Scientists are out there every day trying to find faults in our body of knowledge. Once I get this concept through to people of faith, they start to see the whole picture.

    Seth: The chances are not slim that groups of cells can get together and form functioning beings. There are all sorts of organisms, at all different levels of integration. The simplest multi-cellular organisms are placozoans with only 10 types of cells. Sponges aren’t as highly integrated as we are but are fully working animals. It is the continuity of integration and complexity found in both the fossil record and in living organisms that made the scientist of the 18th Century look for an alternative to the biblical creation story, which couldn’t be made to agree with the evidence.
    This site (http://tolweb.org/Animals/2374) is useful as a good overview of the diversity of life and of evolutionary relationships.
    We don’t take your answers seriously, because your answers are infantile and insane; Sort of like the ‘answers’ provided by a guy who thinks space aliens are bugging his brain through the telephone wires. It’s kind of cute because it’s so crazy, but no educated person is going to believe it. Learn about the subject before you talk about it and you’ll get a better reception.

    LostWookiee: Nice post, I agree completely.

    Seth—“Scientific things such as gravity, electricity, nuclear technology have all been proven.” WRONG. Gravity has not been 100 percent proven, which is why it’s still considered a theory. Why is this theory more acceptable to you then evolution?
    -
    “I understand scientific method. I also understand that scientific method is a man-made thing. We can’t always trust what we create.”—Soo, what, are we not allowed to trust anything man ever created? Being skeptical is one thing, being blind is another. Like it or not, science is based off the scientific theory. Evolution is based off said theory, so it’s ok to teach in science class. Not that complicated, really.
    -
    “I don’t see where my beliefs are being taught in your children’s science classes.”—it’s called ID.
    -
    “But neither is a teacher who teaches evolution as fact.”—Evolution is not a fact, and no one is teaching it that way (at least no one with any brains). It’s taught as the THEORY of evolution, remember?
    -
    No one ever said YOU had to agree with evolution. You don’t have to accept that the world is round, either. But that’s where the facts are pointing, so…

    This is now my absolutely favoritest quote ever.

    There are two things I fail to understand about Christians (who, as far as I know, are the only group clamoring for ID to be taught as science).

    Why on earth do you people insist that evolution is a theory of origin? Can you truly be taught nothing without a permission slip from your pastor? You have to have a starting point before you can evolve… comparing creationism and evolution theory is totally farcical…

    and

    Why on earth do you people get so scared about science in this day and age? Most reasonable people are willing to accept the Christian Testament (and its forefather, the Old Testament) as allegorical… must you insist on taking those essays completely as (pardon me) gospel, insofar as their application to natural science? Why not just accept that certain passages were not completely understood by either the medium through whom His word flowed, or the person later translating the text, and thus their meaning obscured and lost to future generations?

    See, that’s one of those little things that generates hate… when you have to defend the indefensible, the best strategy is to viciously attack your opponent in the hopes that he or she will be so cowed (or, more truthfully, disgusted) by the exchange that they cede the victory to you. That’s not the sort of organization to which I want to belong.

    To summate…

    I just don’t get the absolutely dogged clinging to literalcy in a document that has been tainted by the touch, interpretation, and judicial editing of Man…

    “We can’t always trust what we create.”

    Best reason for casting a skeptical eye on the New Testament I ever saw. Thank you, Seth.
