Conversation with James about God, the Big Bang, and the Foundation of Science (Part 2)

This is a continuation of the long conversation with with Christian creationist James McKenzie. I am answering his post found in the previous thread here.

I received this very strange response to my article Context Rules: The Inextricable Sexism of the Bible Confirmed by someone using the handle “primitive futurist”. He began by dismissing equality as “over-rated”: Big deal. Equality is so over-rated. Bible has it right, moderns have it wrong. Get over it. I responded: Actually, it is a very […]

The Problem with Religion: It aggravates pre-existing intellectual and moral failings

It’s May 21 – The Harold Camping Delusional Doomsday Memorial Day

It’s been two years since Harold Camping had his judgement day. He had spent years proclaiming that “the Bible guaranteed” that the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011, to be followed by five months of terror on earth known as the “Great Tribulation” before the final destruction of the entire universe. He declared his […]
