Thread: The Evolution Fraud
02-28-2017, 06:33 AM
I am puzzled, noonwitch. We "neocons" are always maligned and attacked by liberals as "Bible-thumpers."
They call us "right wing religious extremists." We're "ignorance waving the Bible."
1. Have you ever heard liberals call themselves the exact counterpoint, i.e. "left wing atheist extremists"? I haven't.
2. Liberals tell us they are so very smart - much, much smarter than us "Bible-thumpers" who "reject science."
Where does that leave you, as a liberal Bible-thumper?
Incidentally, I sent a letter to atheist Isaac Asimov's publisher regarding many errors of ignorance in his book, Counting the Eons.
The longhair, and now dead, Isaac responded to me personally on a postcard, calling me "silly." He failed to address any of his glaring errors in his book, however. I sold his postcard online at eBay for $50 and a Carl Sagan letter of similar origin for $75. Nor did I ever buy any of either atheist/agnostic's books, but rather checked them out at the library. Isaac Asimov became an atheist after he flunked a high school exam, after praying to God to pass it. Evidently prayer was easier than studying. So after failing, Asimov, in his inimitable genius, decided to "show" God by forever renouncing Him. Asimov was SO SMART that he would never fly commercial aviation, afraid that his aircraft would crash. Nobody told him that commercial aviation is 10 times safer per passenger mile than driving.

I'm not a liberal who thinks she is smarter than everyone else. I suck at math and science, that is why I am a social worker. LOL. The smartest person I knew growing up in that sense was my grandpa, who was a Ford engineer and who invented the Cam-loc ratchet wrench, if you know what that is. He was a conservative, who was highly successful in life even though he never even graduated from high school (he knocked Grandma up and had to drop out and go to work-to the day he died, he said she tricked him). But he did go to Cass Tech High School in Detroit for a couple of years, and took engineering classes. I grew up in Grand Rapids, which was pretty conservative when I was a kid. So I grew up respecting people who held different opinions from my parents.
My parents were big fans of Carl Sagan and Cosmos, though. I have Sagan's book from the original series, I don't claim to understand everything in it, but it's a good reference book. I really am not familiar with any of Asimov's work, other than I know he was a Sci/fi writer and I'm more into the fantasy end of the genre. I grew up in the liberal church (UCC) and they accept evolution. I just don't worry too much about it. God is God. Science is science. My abilities are more in tune with Bible study than scientific study. I don't know if I'm exactly a liberal Bible thumper, but I participate in women's Bible study through my church, which is not the UCC. I go to a non-political, evangelical church, that has a mix of liberals and conservatives.
As a social worker and observer of human behavior in general, I have noticed that most famous people don't like being told they are wrong. It's not abnormal for them to project back on the one who points out their errors.

Is this thread something that would have been created by a "DUmpster"?
