Your daily source of news & videos on science & religion since 2007
<span>myth<span>–noun</span><span>1.</span>a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, esp. one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.sounds like an accurate statement to me..</span>
If people want to equate "myth" with "false" simply because such legends sound like horsesh*t, so much the better.
The greyed out question in this text entry box asks me "what's on your mind...". Well, nothing. Nothing is on my mind. Nothing is on my mind because my mind has been swept entirely clean of thought by the blinding white hot stupid in this video clip. I sit here, brain reduced to an ashen cinder of uselessness by the dumbest thing that I have even seen in my life, nay, that has ever existed full stop. Mind-fucking-blowing.
Wow... I've never seen her so attentive and clear before. She must be really fired up about this. I guess the only thing more important to Faux News than bashing atheists is flipping out over anything remotely suggesting a direct threat to Christianity in America.
He said that he is not smart enough to identify it!! the kids did...Fox should've hosted those kids instead, cause this is what the true level of that waste of time.I always wandered why Americans are so oblivious when it comes to world events, now I get it they are so exhausted with hosting schmucks on their news channels.
Zimmerman said one thing I agree with. "I'm not smart enough..."
The statement is indeed a myth. It's utterly irrational to say it's a scientific statement. Might as well, say it's a scientific truth that Zeus & Thor made the universe together in 2 seconds with the magic wand that they borrowed from the fairy god-mother.
Well, creationism isn't really a "biblical myth", it's the belief that a deity (be it YHWH, Allah, Brahma, etc.) created the world. To say it's 'biblical' is just wrong, since lots of religions have a creation myth, and have people believe these creation myths as though they were fact.
Banning the truth. . . disconcerting.
<span> 2:12 "It's one thing to take religion out of schools..."Religion should not be in the schools in the first place. What happened to separation of church and state??3:11 "I'm not smart enough to pick that stuff up..."No comment... :-/</span>
ignorant asshole ...
I was trying to get up the nerve to listen to this clip tonight before I went and saw Adam Lambert tonight but didn't want this clip to bring down my mood. Great show in Vancouver and since I want the shows energy and fun to lingerr I will give this clip a pass until tomorrow. But let's face it coming from the fauxnews morons and their religious nutcase bimbos, this is grist for the mill.
I bet he wouldn't mind if the book called the Hindu creation account a myth. He certainly wouldn't mind if the book called the ancient Greek creation account a myth.
does dad want other science banned? what a moron!
This is why charter schools are such a good idea. That way I can send my kids to schools that teach science and he can send his kids to schools that teach religion, and then my kids can become biologists and his kids can become ditch diggers.
And then he'll have more kids than you and the ditch diggers will vote to take your rights to your charter schools away, replacing them with just ditch digger schools. <span> </span>
Not if I don't pay for their health care and let them die off.
<span>I agree Jason, it is a very very dangerous path. </span><span></span><span>Do not underestimate the power of these cretin, their life philosophy might be trainwecked but these people are devious and shrewd as hell. If you think they will stop after stripping the rights of gays away you´re very much mistaken. Citizens who truely want and believe in a secular society better wake up, organize and fight back now. </span><span></span><span></span><span></span>
I found myself looking at this guy's forehead and thinking ... "there's space for a brain".
But that's not how it happened.Warm air from Muspelheim hit Niflheim, the two worlds that existed at the dawn of time, which gave birth to Ymir, the frost giant, and Audhumla, a cow. Various beings were born from Ymir, out of his feet and armpits, and also his sweat. On the next day Ymir suckled from Audhumla, while it licked a salt stone. This salt stone gave birth to Buri, who fathered Borr, the father of Odin, Vili and Ve. War ensued between them and Ymir, and they created the world out of his flesh and other body parts.And then.. Then they made Man out of tree trunks - Ask and Embla - The first two humans to populate Middle earth.Although, when you think about it, this is no more ludicrous than talking snakes, virgin births, worldwide floods and such.
Ugh. I can't watch the clip, but here's a fun fact: The school in question is THE best public school in Knoxville, serving the area of town with the most expensive homes and property taxes. (Yeah, I know, that's not saying much.) Still, it's a bit of an anomaly for that much stupid to spring from the otherwise most sophisticated area of town.In Knoxville, it's Montessori FTW.
Is it just me, or does anyone else want to just slap her face?
Another 'Christian' with his head buried deeply in his ASS!! I'm SICK of IT!
