We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

My eyes!  Can't unseen that article ;-)

The only thing more pernicious than the idea that Jews are undermenschen ... is the idea that Jews are ubermenschen.

Actually Genesis is correct, in the original Hebrew only.  In Kabbalah, the universe is made up not of atoms or numbers, but the Hebrew letters (however Hebrew letters are also numbers).  Therefore every verse of the Hebrew Bible ... is a formula for gematria.  Modern genetics only proves that some, not all, Jewish genetic lines were preserved thru in-group marriage.  But that doesn't prove theism, it only proves the murderous nature of Gentiles.

No, but I give the author kudos for pretending to sound all sciency and stuff.  He should fool the lemmings quite easily.

I have approximately zero interest in anything icr has to say other than admitting they're full of shit. Short of that..zip.

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

No.  Genesis disproves itself.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Iron age poetry is just poetry.  It isn't right or wrong.  Is "itsy bitsy spider" right or wrong?  It is something a child recites.

When people think that poetry is the literal truth of the world, it needs to be treated as a claim.

so, are you actually going to provide a discussion with us? or are you going to spam links and duck out of each thread you create?

Just the fact that it comes from ICR is sufficient to debunk it. That's how bad ICR's reputation is. Kind of like AIG, Breitbart and InfoWars. Sources of utter BS.

This is the problem I have with atheists.  When ape men take something literally, or try to use it as a fact claim, or try to use it as an excuse for tyranny ... you laugh, you don't treat them as anything more than childish ape men .. Bedtime for Bonzo.
