You'd prefer faith, of course.
Some of you act like being an atheist somehow makes you knowledgeable of science and intelligent.
Why do you care what other believe about the afterlife or origine of life, etc? You act like it is almost criminal if somebody believes in God.
Well, I do know more about science because I haven't spent most of my life shaking in my boots about the afterlife and instead used that time to read and otherwise study all manner of scientific research. Though not a scientist myself, I've had relatives and good friends who were chemists, physicists, archaeologists, geologists, biologists, medical researchers and a few other fields. They educated me and inspired me to learn more about their various fields so that I could have intelligent conversations with them, and so that I could learn. Not having a head full of Jesus does wonders for the intellect. (It also helps that I don't have a TV set nor a love of movies, dancing, rock music, sports or video games.)
I think it is generally true that we don't actually care what others think about the afterlife or origins. Except when they use that as an excuse to stone us to death or try teaching our kids pure sh*t in school. Or when they try to take over the country with using imagined religious guidelines as instructional material rather than observation, rationality and logic. Who else would vote for a stupid person except a religion person? Our current congress is evidence that that might be true.
If religion had anything good to offer mankind, I'd say something nice right about now.
The good thing about engineering majors is the professors can't politicize them like the liberal arts majors and some of the science majors like biology. You guys were probably forced to build monuments to Darwin as your school project. then you got the global warming propaganda and the other liberal / Democrat propaganda. Probably watched Brokeback Mountain in every class including your remedidal math classes. lol
Where did you do your learning? Stereotypes-R-Us? Is it really that important that you be wrong about everything?
It doesn't' surprise me that you're an engineer. Especially a mechanical one. No wonder you are so hung up on things being frickin' designed. Any connection? Methinks there is a big one. While I have all the respect in the world for the other engineers in the world, it is not unusual for engineers to have narrow points of view outside of their chosen field. Some of the most ardent theists I've known were brilliant engineers. Otherwise they were idiots. I don't' know what it is about an engineer that causes some of them to think funny.
By the way, the only theory of evolution you understand is your own. You haven't demonstrated that you understand even one thing about the real theory.
Of course, now that I know you're an engineer, I understand the whole thread. As the old joke goes, "Arguing with an engineer is a lot like wrestling in the mud with a pig. After a few hours, you realize that he likes it."
Canada seems like a two city country. You basically live in the sticks outside of Toronto and Montreal.
That is why we call it the 51st state. We do provide them a free military, they don't even have one. lol that is why like 50 percent of their tax revenue can go to their "awesome" public healthcare option with no other options. lol
You guys love false info don't you. The highest tax rate in Canada (for the rich folks) is 29%, and they do pay for their health insurance separately. A family of two pays $96 per month. Of course, since you're an engineer, you know for a fact that the 7% or so of their annual income that Canadians pay for health care is far far more than the 17%+ that Americans pay. If you figure in the exchange rate and stuff.
Gee I wish I was smart as you. And I will be someday. When I die.
