    I personally don’t see an issue with my atheist family celebrating Christmas… It’s mostly pagan anyway.

    • Wayne says:

      My Pastafarian family celebrates it with aplomb. We have fun decorating the house and tree, and it’s a big thrill for me to watch the kids go bananas opening the presents. Although I agree with it mostly being pagan, we still call it Christmas, and acknowledge that most of the modern world see it as a christian holiday. Today the excitement in the household is unbelievable. It makes a ‘year’ of hard work being away from the family worthwhile.

      Doesn’t help that you are unable to spell “spaghetti”. You should probably know that ours is a tolerant faith. People have the right to be as stupid as they want, we just also have the right to point that out.

      Matt, try to be FSM-like, rather than just a Pastafarian.

        The right to be as stupid as I want!…. Tear drops. This is the faith for me.

    A scientist is digging around and finds a piece of flint that has the edges chipped away so that it looks roughly like an arrowhead, and confidently proclaims, “This was designed by someone!”.

    The same scientist observes our physical universe with its finely tuned, incredibly precise laws, the amazing abundance of life on earth, the complexity of the self replicating DNA molecule, and the infinite capacity of the human mind… and confidently proclaims, “It all came about by blind chance”.

    Don’t let the ridiculous claims made by some religious nuts cloud the discussion. Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

      Again with the “blind chance”? Do yourself a favor and learn what natural selection is all about.

      If a tree squirrel is born with abnormally loose skin, it can semi-parachute to avoid predators. It has a survival advantage. If for example, tall people had a decided advantage of living throughout the reproductive years, how long would it be before a 6 footer was a midget? A hundred years? A thousand at most?

    • TiltedHorizon says:

      I find it funny when a person eluding that ‘something’ cannot come from ‘nothing’ has no problem accepting that a god (i.e. a something) came from ‘nothing’ to create everything.

      Congrats REBAR, if something cannot come from nothing, then god cannot exist. In case you decide to come back and say ‘god always existed’ then let me say in return that maybe so does the universe. Of the two, the latter does not require any supernatural assertions therefore is more plausible.

      • Mal says:

        I will accept the possibility of the existence of a god if REBAR will tell us who created him.

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          His Dad of course! Come on Mal, just think logically will you.

      Regarding the first part of your argument: a “scientist” (or in this case an archaeologist/anthropologist/palaeontologist) will say “this was designed by someone” because he recognises the signs, knows how it was done and can replicate it himself – or knows someone who can (ever heard of flint knappers?)

    The Intelligent Designers and Evolutionists are all barking up the wrong tree. The whole multiverse including our universe and all the people living on the countless exoplanets were all created by the FSM as any intelligent person can see!

    • Rasputin says:

      Praise be to the FSM, creator of everything! Yaaaarrr!
