        A doctrine that tells us that even infants are wicked and filled with sin... Now THAT's evil. It's a horrible little doctrine written by horrible little iron age men.

        This one of those things that cannot be proven or disproven by science...at least at this point.



    Quote:
    It would depend on the kind of god we're talking about. A god who just started the universe then just sat back and let it unfold, well, no evidence either way.



    Quote:
    But Christians believe in an intercessionary god. One who affects things. So even if we can't analyse him directly, then we should be able to measure the effects he's having. But when we do that...nada. Nothing.


Well there are a lot of things we still cant measure...Dark matter etc...just saying being finite creatures there is no way to prove or disprove and infinite being/concept.


    Quote:
    Prayer doesn't work (and may even be marginally detrimental), faith healing doesn't work, and miracles don't happen.



    Quote:
    So yes, science can actually say A LOT about the Christian god.


Well its not that simple...ONLY Faith healing...ignoring modern medicine etc...that can be very detrimental.

Faith and belief (when positive) + modern medicine not really detrimental. Morale is important...if faith gives you the morale to keep on going, then its helpful. If it makes you just give up...its detrimental.

      Ehhh...Agree men have surely messed with it. Not sure just because whats in the books means the writers were homophobes...there is a lot more to whoever they were than just that. That's too easy a label. Those using anything in it to hurt gay people...those are the homophobes.



    Quote:
    Leviticus 20:13 "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."



    Quote:
    A horrible text designed specifically to have gay people not only hurt, but murdered. I don't think it's a stretch to call whoever wrote those words homophobic.


That person but not everyone. Also there are a lot of odd passages in the bible about things like crop rotation and so on...some of which was actually useful. Many hands many changes. Most homophobes are usually gay people in denial and full of self loathing. It's too bad they just cant accept their own nature and understand it is not inherently wrong.
