My religion does all kinds of silly things. It's not a person, though, so it has no mind to change.
Catholicism never denied evolution to my knowledge. Do you have a citation on that? I'd be curious. I think you're confusing us with the fundamentalists.
Copernicus of course was a Catholic priest, and now our pope is a former chemistry teacher.
And now your pope is an openly bigoted homophobe who sticks his nose in uteri it doesn't belong :)
Are you proud of this?
It's bad enough that you throw around shit like this:
"There was no evidence to support he had anything to do with it, but these accusations don't come from nowhere."
...but then to accuse others with
"start throwing around offensive accusations like that you commit a fallacy known as Circumstantial ad Hominen"
What's Latin for double standard?
And the 'fact' could be that they harbour a grudge against that person for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with the alleged assault. Perhaps a spurned romantic advance, perhaps being overlooked for a promotion, or perhaps just a wild fantasy.
As someone putting yourself forward as policing the intellectual honesty of this discussion I think you ought to take a closer look at the intellectual integrity of your obvious bias.
What complete and utter BULLSHIT. Please look up the term, "due process".
No it is NOT "open ended". If a charge is brought, the accused must be PROVED guilty or he/she is INNOCENT. That's a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT!
By your standard anyone can "go through the trouble" of filing a complaint and completely ruin someone's life because idiots like you ASSUME "there must be something to it" just because an accusation is made. If that's your definition of "fact", a whole lot of assumptions can be made about your thought processes. Are you a theist troll? (A reasonable assumption considering the way you think.)
Meanwhile we'll just go ahead and assume you are a theist troll. The question has been raised. There must be something to it, right? The question is open ended, right? Your denials are irrelevant. The assumption has been made. We'll just go ahead and roll with that.
FACT: Sam Redmon is a a theist troll.
I don't know what sort of evidence there is that Sam Redmon is a theist troll, but these sorts of accusations don't come from nowhere, right?
Sorry, I thought you were trolling. I figured you'd say, "got me". But no, you "honestly" don't accept (nor understand) the basic tenet of civilized legal systems. You want "guilty until proven innocent", eh? What more can I say?
Sorry I misjudged you. Please say a prayer for me.
Sam, I have no personal bone to pick with you, so this is simply FYI - I lived in Mexico for several years, and under the Mexican "justice" system, a person accused of a crime is guilty - why else would he be arrested? - until he or she proves himself innocent, and in Mexican jails, if you want to eat, you need to buy your own food. It doesn't take much time in a Mexican jail, which is not all the fun it's cracked up to be, to appreciate the American "innocent until proven guilty" system - and on this side of the Rio, the food is free.
