It's not inevitable, but it takes away a major theistic prop.

I understand what you mean. I should have probably worded it different.

Although I was indoctrinated young, there was always a bit of a disconnection for me. Once I truly learned about how evolution works, that became the catalyst that destroyed god. I think anyone who can reconcile the two, and believes that God "pushed" evolution in certain directions, hasn't learned enough about evolution.

I guess. But I do know a few people who do seem to know their shit about evolution and still believe in god. Now they might be more deist types...I don't know. But I do know they don't see a conflict between evolution and the bible.

I'm of the view that gaining an understanding of pretty much anything scientific will help lead someone to atheism, because of the critical thinking involved. I remember a fundie on a bus who segued from christian dogma to chattering about pharmaceuticals, chaiming that morphine was "de-esterified heroin" (actually, it's the other way around; heroin is esterified morphine, a subtle but significant difference) and complaining that medications were supplied at less than technical grade (of course they are; it's not easy for a patient to handle 0.5 milligrams of pretty much any substance). The punch line: this jackass claimed to be a chemist.

I just looked at the Facebook page for this. Thank Athena there were some sensible people there, but sadly 1 denier of evolution is too much.

That's a facepalm moment. I came at from a different perspective, when I began to pick apart the bible and began to realize that I didn't need a set of rules handed down from the bronze age to tell me it's wrong to kill.


Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

Theblaze.com is, once again, pushing a story about Ray Comfort's short video, Evolution vs. God, . . . and this time they are bringing up the youtuber Jaclyn Glenn who brought issue against the movie.

Needless to say, the theists on that site are all excited about "how Ray Comfort demolished the evolutionary theory". Too bad actual scientists don't get together, go to Ray Comfort's location and show him why he is absolutely wrong in his claims.

I prefer to watch JaclynG's rebuttal.
Even Dawkins gave it a shoutout.

Hmmmm.... Jaclyn...

By the way, . . . where IS the best place to send someone to show them the evidential support for evolutionary biology?
