oooh, the title is wrong, golly, we can't expect people to read more than that. Here's the hypocrisy. Whenever I have even alluded to abiogenesis and evolution being closely knit, I am judged and taken to task and called ignorant, uneducated, foolish, etc etc. When someone in the science community does it, it's just a simple error...a human error.....no big deal. I see much discussion around here about the animosity that frequently exists between the theist community and the non-theist community and this is a big reason why. Science makes a mistake or corrects a previously held position on something and "that's okay" for the non-theist. A theist makes a mistake or draws different conclusions from the same data and they are lazy, brainwashed, stupid, ignorant, deluded, predisposed to Bible-God...and on and on it goes.
Yep, you are taken to task here and the title’s author would also be taken to task. They’re not here, and again, you ignore the other part of my point, that it is a title in a science mag aimed at non-scientists and the copy writers look for something that will get attention. It’s errors all around (and it’s funny to watch you whine “but but they do it too” as if this makes a difference and excuses you). The problem is with creationists is that they continue making the error in their articles unlike this one. You keep saying ignorant things like evolution equals abiogenesis and never stop. As you have said, scientists change their minds and have reasons. Creationists don’t and keep lying. That you can’t see the difference is sad and hilarious since you benefit from those scientists correcting previously held positions.
Secondly, this is the kind of 'propaganda' that is brainwashing our youth in the same manner you criticize religion of. The article reports on a conceptualization of what LUCA may have consisted of....it's an hypothesis. However plausible it may seem to some, it really amounts to nothing more than the equivalent of someone trying to piece together a 200 piece puzzle game with 199 pieces from other puzzles.
Oh my my, “propaganda” and ooooh, brainwashing. Really, how is it doing anything that you claim? It presents a hypothesis, just like you said. We can see right in the article that they say they can’t be sure that this is a valid one. No one sayin that this is the absolute invarying truth, like oh, religions do. It’s hilarious that you go back the usual creationist lies like a dog to vomit. No, unfortunately for you, the same scientific method to come up with this hypothesis is the same one used for the science you benefit from. No magic puzzle pieces needed at all.
Science is a wonderful discipline and something we all benefit from daily. However, when it is used as a weapon to dismantle a long standing belief system that hundreds of millions of people have lived by and believe strongly in, that is just wrong....and highly irresponsible.
why is it wrong, BS? I’m sure you’d have no problem if your particular belief system was immune and anothers was attacked.
It does come down to that though doesn’t it, that you think your believe system is immune and shouldn’t be questioned? People believed in Zeus and Odin strongly but gee, Christians didn’t respect that. No, they converted and killed over their religion. How “irresponsible”.
You want everyone to go “Oh yes, BS is so right, isn’t he wonderful”, no matter the evidence to the contrary. However, your bible and your god have shrank and shrank in the face of humanity. once upon a time , disease was god’s provenance but now we can cure or treat many of them, not depending on “god’s will”. We hear claims of events in the bible but find that none of them can be supported any more than the events in the Greek myths. Your bible supports slavery, genocide and ignorance in favor of god’s ‘wisdom’ and we have gone far beyond those primitive ignorant concepts leaving your bible behind.
There is nothing wrong or irresponsible in showing people that they are wrong and that their baseless beliefs are false. That’s where the facts lead, not to a worthless claim that you and you alone have a special invisible friend and that invisible friend makes you the bestest. Show some evidence of this god and then you’ll have a leg to stand on. But as it stands, you have no more than those religions that came before you.
