What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal. The Christian scum who infest that place will probably cry like babies.

Franklin scribbled a note at the bottom of his prayer speech lamenting, “The Convention except three or four Persons, thought Prayers unnecessary!”
They probably thought it would be a waste of time.
I worked for several corporations. Never once did I see anyone pray. The government should be the same. Just get the job done and don't waste time.

-------------------------------------------
Lots of extreme stupid at that place. An example: "There is no explanation for the origin of life - requires a creator God."

Translation: "Duh, duh, I don't know anything about science therefore the Magic Man did it. Duh."

Nobody questions this bullshit. If I wrote anything about it the science deniers would be harassing me until the end of time.
-------------------------------------------
What I wrote for the fucktard:

Sir, a quote from Neil deGrasse Tyson about the god of the gaps which you invoked for #1 and #3:

"If that's where you're going to put your god in this world then god is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance. If you're going to stay religious then god has to be more to you then just where science has yet to travel."

Also sir if your religion completely depends on the resurrection of a decomposing corpse then your religion will some day in the distant future go extinct.
-------------------------------------------
Sir, when you write something like "god did it" you can't say "it's true because I wrote it". Gaps in human understanding are research opportunities. They are not an excuse to give up and say it was a magical event which is a fantasy that doesn't solve the problem. It just creates a new problem. Where did this magical being come from and how did it get unlimited magical powers? This is Easter Bunny stuff. It's childish and ridiculous.

Another problem for your god of the gaps is abiogenesis has been mostly figured out. It's the worst possible place to hide a Magic Man. There's tons of information about it. Just google "wikipedia abiogenesis".
How did the universe begin? Scientists have ideas about it but it's still a research opportunity. Not one scientist working in this branch of science thinks it was a magical event.

I collect quotes. I have hundreds of these things.

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." -- Charles Darwin

"If the history of science teaches us anything, it is that what conquers our ignorance is research, not giving up and attributing our ignorance to the miraculous work of a creator." -- Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist
“There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.” -- Stephen Hawkings
One more thing sir. The magical resurrection never happened for an obvious reason: It's impossible. Decomposing corpses do not rise from the dead. Zombies are not real. Once again this is Easter Bunny stuff. It's ridiculous not to mention disgusting.

-------------------------------------------
I HAD TO SHORTEN THIS THING TO MAKE IT FIT IN ONE COMMENT AT THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

Gaps in human understanding are research opportunities. They're not an excuse to say it was magic which just creates a new problem. Where did the magical being come from and how did it get its magical powers?

Abiogenesis has been mostly figured out. Google "wikipedia abiogenesis".

-------------------------------------------
THE STUPID. IT BURNS. The god-soaked retard wrote a lot of bullshit including this:
"The origin of life is not even close to being figured out."
WHAT I WROTE:
Would it kill you to do what I suggested: Google "wikipedia abiogenesis".
Education is a wonderful thing. Education will not bite you. Learning how the world really works is much more interesting then your boring everything-is-magic fantasy world.
What if scientists were like you? There would be zero scientific progress. No research. No discoveries. Just god-did-it.
Science hard. Hurts brain.
God easy. No think.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."-- Isaac Asimov
