Richard Dawkins: The Big Question

The methods of evolution by Darwinian natural selection can in fact tell us why we are here and not merely how. Dawkins explores the details.

Anne Coulter: Religious Stupidity

For a long time now I have disliked Anne Coulter for her intellectual  dishonesty.  Her comments on everyone including women, immigrants and liberals have generally not failed to piss me off.  I was angered when she  wished that John Edwards would get killed in a terrorist attack and made some atrocious remarks about his dead son.  

The focus of today’s post is not to rant on about her political stupidity but  to show a few of  her idiotic relgious quotes:

  • “Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims. “

  • I guess she  has forgotten about Timothy McVeigh.  Last time I checked he was not a Muslim.  And what about all those  abortion doctor murders who happen to be Christan? Oh and lets not forget the Confederates,  they were mostly Christian as well.  The Confederates are  a perfect example of what terrorists are, they were forcibly trying to overthrow the  Government , or  in their case, trying to break up the country.   Bet she won’t bring that up because the Confederates were white Christain Europeans.

  • Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity (as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the lines of ‘kill everyone who doesn’t smell bad and doesn’t answer to the name Mohammed‘).

  • Being nice to people is a tenet of Christianity? I guess she thinks that the Inquisition, the Genocide of the American Continent, the Witch Trails are all examples of Christians being  “nice” to other people.

  • I would like evolution to join the roster of other discredited religions, like the Cargo Cult of the South Pacific. Practitioners of Cargo Cult believed that manufactured products were created by ancestral spirits, and if they imitated what they had seen the white man do, they could cause airplanes to appear out of the sky, bringing valuable cargo like radios and TVs. So they constructed “airport towers” out of bamboo and “headphones” out of coconuts and waited for the airplanes to come with the cargo. It may sound silly, but in defense of the Cargo Cult, they did not wait as long for evidence supporting their theory as the Darwinists have waited for evidence supporting theirs.
  •  Ms Coulter, Evolution is not a religion ,it is a change in the inherited traits of a population from one generation to the next .  It is a science.   While we are discrediting things,I cannot wait for the day that Anne Coulter is  discredited as a human being.  That’s more likely to happen than Evolution being discredited.

  • We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
  • This was in regard to the Muslim countries.  Didn’t the Christians try that in the numerous Crusades? How well did that go  Ann?    Are they all Christan countries now?

    If it was not for the complete and utter ignorance and yes “evil” nature of her statements it would be funny.  But the fact that she gets air time  to express her views is atrocious.    If you think her views in regard to religion are bad,  check out some of her other views….

    GodTube Video of the Week: Evolution Cartoon

    Can someone out there please explain this video? The only part I could understand is that this person that created this cartoon is saying that evolution would mean fish turns into frog turns into human. Are they really that simple minded? And the rest of it, the part about the frog dying, what the hell was the point of that? If anyone out there can explain it please do so!
