"I was having this same discussion with my wife yesterday. I was absolutely deprived of a proper education growing up. I was in a catholic school from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Not once was I taught about evolution or the creation of the solar…"

"I couldn't agree more.  I'd love you to see some crash courses on evolution for interested parents that would like to explain the theory a little better."

Charles Kennett replied to Brenda Joanne's discussion 'Ancient Aliens'
"There is no compelling evidence for this. If you believe that, you don't know what constitutes compelling evidence (not you specifically, just saying). It's in vogue for people who know little about evolutionary biology to speculate that…"

Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking: Aliens pt 1/5 (Discovery Channel Documentary April 2010)

"I think there is something that atheists should consider, when we try to speculate about something that goes beyond our ordinary experience, even the experience of mankind collectively. We who do not believe in God feel that evidence for such an…"

Charles Kennett replied to Jessica Renee's discussion 'What are your thoughts on this article? Valid points or hogwash?'
"For the most part this article is fluff. Your bullshit detector should be going off when you read an article like this referring to several studies and other articles, but with none of the actual references. Also the author of the article is an…"

Charles Kennett replied to Brian Sellers's discussion 'Can a Fundamentalist Christian and an Outspoken Atheist be Friends?'
"I think we are missing something a little fundamental here. Are we to presume that because someone is a Christian, you can really expect any better treatment at his hands than you could with any random individual in the population? That Christians…"

"I'd really not like to be anywhere near any Christian that decides to "go doomsday" Sorry, but every end-of-the-world-movie I've ever seen could have been very easily derailed by a few rational thinkers. It isn't the…"

"Now, now. I expect to be supported by you people. Don't be a buzz kill. The point is to turn on the light and see the cockroaches run. Point is I'd like to see some X-ians go doomsday on each other, line up for the rapture, that kind of…"

The Second Coming

A few of you know have read some of my comments, and even perhaps have read my geek blog about evolution.  And I've made some conciliatory comments about certain Christians, that they can come to reason, and potentially except certain realities and yet retain their deluded state.  Perhaps we can find back door ways to keep evolution education in the schools, fight global warming, advance women's and gay rights, right? Well I've got a really good idea that comes straight from the pit.  Something…See More

Charles Kennett replied to Michael's discussion 'Phylum Level Evolution'
"You would think so, but not to ID proponents, whose narrow definition of what is scientific evidence is restricted to empericism per Popper. For them it's got to be the experimental data following a narrow application of the scientific method…"

Charles Kennett replied to Michael's discussion 'Phylum Level Evolution'
"Part of the problem is that as species exist in populations (there are no 'kinds' of organisms), the kind of evolution we are lucky enough to witness is going to be limited to speciation or the birth of a new genus if we are lucky.…"

Evolution a Must in Primary School Education

Folks,My first post for the group. I recently wrote a blog essay about why cereationists develop their beiliefs and advocate for mandatory teaching of evolutionary theory in the primary schools. See http://armchairdarwin.blogspot.com/I think we can all agree that it's imporant to keep religious dogma out of the classroom, but I think it's time that we land a good right cross on the smug faces of the flat earth society by making it a must that…See More

Charles Kennett replied to Graham E. Lau's discussion 'My family and the Dover School Board trial' in the group Atheists who love Science!
"I've heard that there was a bill submitted to Parliament (the Queen's council or somesuch) about education reform that included compulsory evolution education at the primary grade levels. Heard anything about this, and if it passed?"

"Interestingly enough I know a school board president that lives in the next town. Seems like a rational person. I'm going to start conversations with him about this. I think it's worth a try, at least in the blue states."
