Thanks for the support! I'm really glad I found this sight. It's hard being the only Atheist around, and comments from people like you, supporting me and not degrading me for my beliefs, makes my decision to be an Atheist so much easier. Does that make sense? Hmmm, anyways, thanks once more for your comment =)
Oh, yeah, the Feature thing. Should have happened months ago, but the red tap held it up. Sorry. Damn bean counters.
Well. I was wanting to have a cool logo for the Skeptics of Think Atheist. I'd be willing to donate $25 to your favorite charity in your name. Receipts, even. That is my final offer. I await your counter offer. ;-)
Thanks for the friend request. I can relate to the arguing with the parents. My sister called me a Scientologist because I was arguing in support of Old Earth. What?... then they don't even want to know what a Scientologist is.
Be happy you can't find many to debate. I bait often, but it does get discouraging to hear Stupid back up Stupid. Chum the waters will political insults of religious choices, you'll find your fun!
hey James, i just saw you post in Whitney's introduction blog post and i realized i hadn't seen you around posting in discussions lately. just wanted to say hey and see how you're doing, well i hope! take it easy brother.
Hey James. i was reading your last blog on ID. I recently read The Case for the Creator at the behest of a neighbor of mine that is a pastor. It's interesting that it's old earth oriented which clearly violates the story of Genesis. Additionally it's clearly written as a pastor would cherry picking points like Java Man instead of Lucy and using the Cosmological Constant. It seems that the author doesn't understand that science is ever changing.
But to the point, I'm gonna write a post tonight that is similar to your idea. I was thinking about the common claim that there is no evidence of speciation and the acceptance of "micro-evolution" and how that relates to the Tower of Babel. It's an extension of some of what you wrote about races. I don't want to it to seem like I'm stealing your idea, Thumper posted a vid earlier that got me thinking about it that I commented on. I'm like minded with you on ID. I honestly think that if ID were valid, it still destroys Genesis due to age.
