    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    so if you claim this, why on earth would you even consider that creationists have the right to teach mythology as an alternative to evolution?

    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    well it does make sense. creationism is a myth. anyone who presents it to children as an alternative to a scientific theory should be barred from teaching science. people who want abrahamic myth represented as "science" need to acknowledge that there are many other creation myths with equal...

    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    As used in science, a theory is an explanation or model based on observation, experimentation, and reasoning, especially one that has been tested and confirmed as a general principle helping to explain and predict natural phenomena and is based on a careful examination of the facts. Theories are...

    again, you are not showing yourself to be particularly good at reading. I have said on a number of occasions that NONE OF This proves anything about global warming. I have also said that I don't know whether current events are part of a long weather cycle. It seems that it is you who is...

    My money is on the likelihood that scientists will have more accurate information on which to base policy decisions on than internet trolls are likely to have.

    have you ever been involved in policy development? my guess is .... no. Policy makers don't pull policies out of their arses based on what they think they would like ... they have to have a more substantial basis than that for making policy decisions.

    hmmmm ... so Jmotivator says its the coldest summer on record in the arctic - I post something that says temps are way above average .... and you say ... but that is normal.

    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    did you learn that greek myths offered a valid alternative explanation of the world? if so it makes sense that you think children should learn alternative "scientific" theories such as creationism.

    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    This is absolute rubbish. The theory of evolution is well established, and there is a considerable amount of evidence which supports it.... so to give creationists credit by stating that creationists are absolutely correct when they point out that evolution is “just a theory” and it is not...

    you have NOT shown this at all. nobody is disputing that changes in land use influence floodwaters - but in many cases of record floods, this has played only a minor role - if any. It is well known that climate change will have differing effects on different areas, so the aggregate of all...

    Freedom of Religion vs the Mandate to Evolve [W 65]

    but why would they want a religious theory taught in a science class? if religious theory MUST be taught in science - shouldn't there also be competing theories on the nature of the universe? why isn't geocentrism presented as an alternative theory, for example?

    A Republican Case for Climate Action

    there are people who believe that this is what evolution theory argues ... and there are plenty of them. anyone familiar with the actual theory has the same understanding that you do.

    Will american girls like me ? [W:92]

    I am not American ... and I am probably too old for you to worry about whether I like you or not, but I expect that American girls are not all the same, any more than Israelis are. My late son had several Israeli friends who stayed with us at various times over the years. I never found these...

    A Republican Case for Climate Action

    there is a third option. some people believe in God AND accept BBT. but I am not sure what this has to do with creationist claims that evolutionary theory states that we evolved from monkeys. ... ie, you perhaps are inclined towards the third option .... which IMHO is not an anti science...

    A Republican Case for Climate Action

    you choose to discuss scientific based topics, but talk about 'examining both sides of an idea' as if you believe that creationism is a potentially valid theory. you also try to conflate 'creationism' with more general religious belief, in what appears to be an attempt to make it appear more...
