The Stupid Rays, They Hurt Us!

[no logical YEC explanation for stars billions of light-years away]

That’s because astronomers erroneously assume that the light which the stars reflect is the light from the sun. They then base their calculations on that. But read the 2nd paragraph in Genesis and you’ll notice that God created light before he created the sun. So guess which light the stars are reflecting? 😉

Holy crap! “Wrong” doesn’t even begin to describe this…

[Explaining how calculations were made for the unlikelihood of Earth being able to support life]

They looked at what humans needed for life. I don’t know what the big deal is about the laws of physics. Can’t the laws of physics be different in another planet if there is one? I agree with many of the points the movie brought out though, like needed liquid water, the right amount of sun, things like that. If there is another planet out there, they probably have the same Holy Bible we do and everything. Really cool.

Can’t the laws of physics be different in another planet if there is one? Ummm, no.

it’s called tongues and that also is revelation knowledge…it happened with good ole peter on the day of pentecost and it was revelation knowledge that appeared in the american church back in the 1900’s…..upon this rock……Peter…i will build my church…as the church goes deeper in the spirit we are more powerful against the devil and the darkness…..so yes..I pray in the spirit a LOT……

Radical Cleric: God told him about storms, tsunami

(via Pharyngula) And speaking of Fundamentalist Idiocy, Radical Cleric Pat Robertson says God told him storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America’s coastline this year. If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms, … There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in … Continue reading “Radical Cleric: God told him about storms, tsunami”

Math Proves Christ’s Resurrection?

It is faith, not proof, that makes Christians believe in Jesus Christ’s resurrection, the central tenet of the religion. Until now.

Oxford University professor Richard Swinburne, a leading philosopher of religion, has seemingly done the impossible. Using logic and mathematics, he has created a formula that he says shows a 97 percent certainty that Jesus Christ was resurrected by God the Father, report The Age and Catholic News.

This stunning conclusion was made based on a series of complex calculations grounded in the following logic:

  1. The probably of God’s existence is one in two. That is, God either exists or doesn’t.
  2. The probability that God became incarnate, that is embodied in human form, is also one in two.
  3. The evidence for God’s existence is an argument for the resurrection.
  4. The chance of Christ’s resurrection not being reported by the gospels has a probability of one in 10.
  5. Considering all these factors together, there is a one in 1,000 chance that the resurrection is not true.

Richard Swinburne, Netscape News

Not only does the poster know nothing about probability (or is it probably?) and logic, he also doesn’t realize “there is a one in 1,000 chance that the resurrection is not true” is not the same as “97 percent certainty that Jesus Christ was resurrected by God the Father.”
