We need a "bad" science section
« on: June 10, 2012, 10:22:00 AM »
For stuff like this, that I found on Reddit.



Don't know how real it is, but the problem is I can't tell for sure. Until I am confident that no christian will ever say something like this, I shall assume that they still do.

I can't see your link/picture.  All I see is a red x in a white box.  Not sure if the problem is on my end or not. 

But I agree.  Bad science is fun.  I think it would make a great section.

Add humans somewhere in there.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

A blunder of biblical proportions...

Who told the author of this calumny that 6 billion (being generous to atheists) humans existed on the earth for 3 billion years?

Or did he/she assume that the bacteria of that days "drank" 2 liters of water daily and converted it to pure energy???

We need a section for the blunders the theists make in the name of science. It would be great amusement.

And apparently nobody ever told him about pee.

And respiration.

And the fact that it all gets recycled.

So much so that every glass of water you drink contains water from the sweat your parents made while making you.

And icky thought, but true.

The science section is still ok for bad science. Nice thread idea tho. There is a lot of fake science

What does "science" have to do with "atheism"?

Atheism is just the non-belief in a god or gods. That's it. One can still be an atheist and believe in some crazy shit.

I am going to claim that there are groups of elves living in the Earth's crust at the bottom of the oceans that have been actively replenishing all the Earth's water that living organisms have been consuming for the past 3 billion years.

Prove me wrong.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

They are not elves! They are pixies. Get it right. The elves were transferred 6,000 years ago to the core, to make sure it's there 'cause someone had the idea that it wasn't after seeing a painting on some wall that showed a flat Earth.

Well, those of us who don't believe crazy shit want to keep it that way.
