The Theory of Christianity

I think it's time to call religious beliefs what they are; theories. Just as Christians continually harp on the fact that evolution is "just a theory", without any real understanding of the term, I think we should start referring to their beliefs as simply a theory. Yes, I know that religious beliefs are not even close to a scientific theory; they are more like a simple hypothesis at this time, but let's just use the term in the way that the theists insist on using it.

Please not that…

My thoughts on the Pg 2 of Bible Story by Arthur S Maxwell

Some more of my annotated comments on the bible story. It says the evolution and plate tectonics are strange ideas I strongly disagree with that line of thought. I have also pointed on the parts of the text where this claims are made.…

It Was All Just a Theory

I've wanted to put together a list of all those nasty theories that get in the way of divine/religious dogma. But I didn't think until now of a place (here) to start such a list.

I happen to think that the "theory of gravity" is a bad example, because I don't know of any people present or past who preached or taught something against a theory of gravity. It's the blatant, anti-science preaching/teaching (e.g. Creationism) that I'm more concerned with.

List theories…

So who or what created the universe?



Is there anyone who doesn't ask this question? If not, why not? I'm pretty confident that any thinker has pondered this. Hmmm... why is this such a concern of ours? Why is this question in our mind? Why were we not content with just being? You know, as in the earth was always here.

Well, regardless, we asked.

Science is now telling us that the universe came into existence when a primordial start of elemental condition started to expand. Which still begs the question,…

Are atoms, solar systems, and our universe all they same with the same laws of physics?

I hate posting this because it might make me look like a complete idiot, but I don't know much about physics and this is just my observation.  I was thinking that undergraduate students must have already their professors this question, if not people like me before and considered it.  I mean it must not be that easy because then there wouldn't be a problem connecting quantum physics, with gravity, and electromagnetism, etc.  In the quantum world, time could move so fast that we can't comprehend… Continue

A Socio-Evolutionary Look at Explaining Religion

           For centuries, humans have discussed the notion of truth and have looked for answers to life in various ways. Somewhere along our evolution to the modern humans we are today, a system was developed to help solve phenomena that occur in the world. This system is religion and is defined by humans in many unique ways. Sands (2010) attributes the beginning of religion to our ancestors the Neanderthals around 50,000 years ago or possibly even earlier with the evolution of Homo…

Happy Vennsday!

Ok, terrible pun. But I was brainstorming for an essay that I am writing and came up with this, and it just happened to be Wednesday, and I just happened to find terrible puns completely irresistible... Anyways, does it seem logically sound? Any of the terminology inappropriate?

Understanding Evolution 101

A great website by Berkley on evolution, what is it, how it works, along with all of sciences and evolutions misconceptions and anti-evolutionist propaganda:

http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evosite/evohome.html

It teaches you everything from how it was formed, to how it works, to why its accepted, to the proof behind it.

Great find IMHO =]

enjoy!
