    Good boy! Now get yourself a treat, Now what does this have to do with what I wrote? Are you hurt because I called him an hyper educated moron? If you earned those diplomas as you say you'd have to have met a few in your time.

    If Bernie Madoff made an hour long infomercial about the greatness of his investment planning, and you, as his co-worker, knew it was a pyramid scheme wouldn't you call him out?
    Curt Schilling is a public figure. He made an hour long Twitter rant about things religious versus science. He should stick to fastballs because he didn't learn **** in science classes. He probably thinks a god curves his throws in answer to pre-pitch prayers, ffs!

    If he says stupid things like "why are there still monkeys?" or some facsimile thereof, he deserves the ridicule, irrespective of who does the ridiculing. His co-worker had the balls to set him down.
    Bear in mind Curt probably has been vocal amongst colleagues way before this Twitter diarrhea episode. Amongst colleagues, who gives a flying fornication. You just smile and nod and slowly back away. But when he goes public via Twitter to 100 000 followers and all their retweets? Oh Hell No.

    You know what is really insulting? How every time creationists get challenged and ridiculed for their beliefs they respond by claiming atheists and liberals are attacking Christians…… As if all Christians are as stupid as they are. By making such assertions creationists are saying the world's 2 billion Christians are all as ignorant of science and modernity in general as they are. That is about as insulting to Christianity as it gets, particularly when you consider that literal creationism is a minority view in Christianity.

    What does what you wrote have to do with anything?

    Trust me, no one is hurt by anything you do...LOL

    You are the one bragging about your diplomas, and if you are a creationist, then those diplomas aren't worth the breakfast cereal boxes they were printed on.

    There is nothing like quoting a zoologist who was last in the classroom in 1908.

    That is like asking the Wright Bros. the probability of landing a space craft on an orbiting asteroid...

    Thank you for actually answering. Your reply was pretty much what I expected from you.

    I'm trying to think of someone I'd trust least to stand up for Christianity.* Please don't do us any favors. Most Christians do believe that God is the creator and you've just said it yourself, creationist = stupid.

    The thing is, if you think believing God is the creator is stupid, what other Christian beliefs must you believe stupid? Any problem with the virgin birth? All the miracles Jesus performed? Walking on water? Calming a storm? The Resurrection?

    How many times have I heard Jesus referred to as a zombie? To claim there is no atheist antagonism toward Christianity might be the funniest thing I've seen. I am curious about why you all just don't want to own it. Surely the thoughts and opinions of any believer can't matter to you.

    Edit: *ok, Hatuey's in the thread. There is someone I would trust less.

    Says the guy who posted a quote by a deeply devout Christian scientist from 70+ years ago as a counter argument for evolution, and then tried to pass off the guy as an evolutionist. It's such a shame about 4 members called you out on that particular line of nonsense and then dropped the argument.

    See this is what's bizarre. Some of you are saying that a creator is inconsistent with evolution, some of you are saying it isn't. Which is it?

    Does believing evolution as fact preclude belief in a creator?

    Now run along X, you don't get promoted from DM to Mod by name dropping.
    What? I wouldn'the consider that a promotion, but I will agree that dropping your name around here would not be of much benefit to me.
