Cara Coleen commented on Walter's blog post 'Why Can't Cavemen Just Get Along?'
"If you ever watch the movie, Rabbit Proof Fence, you'll see what the English did to the Aborigines in Australia. I would say they're a more Neanderthal-type people. The English were trying to breed them out because they either wanted to…"

Rev. Tom Hicks, D.D. commented on Walter's blog post 'Why Can't Cavemen Just Get Along?'
"It's probably all the above. With that kind of time frame, I think we both got along & had our difference. Extinction due to genocide, I don't know but I can't put it pass our specie to do somethin' like that."

Why Can't Cavemen Just Get Along?

Paleontologists have known for a while now that anatomically modern humans and our more attractive cousins, the Neanderthals, lived side by side for 100,000 years. Then between 45,000 and 30,000 years ago the Neanderthal population began to diminish and finally disappeared altogether. Our Modern human ancestors drove them to extinction according to one of…See More

Cara Coleen commented on Walter's blog post 'Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?'
"...just as an FYI, the "Original Sin" argument isn't new. It's just been repackaged."

Cara Coleen commented on Walter's blog post 'Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?'
"Unfortunately, they've always held the belief that the world is ruined because of the sin of Adam. Before Global Warming became a real issue, they used his sin to explain things like thorns and crops that wouldn't yield growth.…"

Rick Watts commented on Walter's blog post 'Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?'
"Interesting. That darn Adam must be responsible for asteroids striking the planet, earthquakes, forest fires, tsunamis and all other natural disasters as well. Maybe that's an example of chaos theory; about how simple actions can blow up into…"

David Capito commented on Walter's blog post 'Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?'
"This reminds me of the display at the Creationist Museum that says that there were no carnivores before the original sin. Something tells me that this original sin argument is going to raise in popularity."

Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?

According to the recent environmentalist book Pollution and the Death of Man, by theologian Francis Schaeffer, Adam's original sin was the first step in destroying the earths environment. An excerpt from a recent book review on an evangelical website says,"This world is not the same as when God created it and said it was good. The sin of Adam changed the way nature functioned-the curse, the damage, the new ways…See More

Michael Shermer Firewalking Across Hot Coals

"Great video. I like the baking cake analogy. While I don't buy the motivational speaker's theory about the physiology of the feet, I do agree with him that people's state of mind can generally affect their motivation and success. Such…"

Walter commented on SabreNation's blog post 'Why Can't All Theists Be Like This?'
"This article made a lot of sense to me. I have heard of this book before and plan to get a copy when it hits the shelves. I am also intrigued by some of the replies to this post. First, Gaytor commented "it still just looks like a distraction…"

Walter replied to Eddie Miles III's discussion 'The problem with gaps in the fossil record'
"I like your metaphor of belief as a substance and the mind as a container. Belief in God is not a foreign substance that flows into believer's thoughts. It is the substance of thought itself. The concept of God is anthropomorphic because it is…"

Walter replied to Eddie Miles III's discussion 'The problem with gaps in the fossil record'
"Yes, they are trying to put God in the gaps because they want to put him somewhere. Religious people do not come to believe in God because of proof. They start from God and then struggle to buttress their faith amid science that offers no proof. Why…"

Walter commented on Laura's blog post 'Atheist Delivering Post-Rapture Messages for Christians'
"Post Rapture Post (PRP) is a competitive business and the field is getting crowded. One exciting newcomer, Post Apocalyptic Junk Mail Inc., is specializing in bulk mail deliveries. Watch for the flier announcing Ace Hardware’s sale on locust…"

Walter replied to Morgan Matthew's discussion 'This Will Be Hard To Believe'
""I Can Hear His Voice Right Now Even PLEASE BELIEVE ME IM NOT KIDDING" Ok, I'll believe you. I believe that you should mention this to a psychiatrist. You may have schizophrenia."
