There is nothing in science that is atheistic.


True, but there appears to be nothing theistic either.

Same with the phone book. There are some things where theism just isn't applicable.

Phat writes:

I know (as does everyone else) that your arguments are designed to expose and demonize CCoI believers. Which is biased.


The methodology is not biased.

On some level, we are biased against murderers, robbers, liars, etc. but the methodology we use to catch them is not inherently biased.

... there aren’t any Marxists here, for instance.


Ringo is darn close!

Learn what Marxism is. Marx was concerned about class struggle and so are you. I am not.

Yet he cloaks it with "what Jesus said to do."


Jesus said what he said.

Phat writes:

This whole idea that the world should be some secular Kum Ba Yah brother and sisterhood is never gonna fly on my watch!


Well, Jesus did preach brother and sisterhood - and yes, we know you're against what Jesus said.

ringo himself has mentioned being quite far to the left ideologically.


I have also mentioned that ideologies are for lazy thinkers. In some ways I am more conservative than you.

Phat writes:

Marxism is an outdated concept.


Maybe so.

Phat writes:

some of us think communism is also, seeing as how it failed after the Cold War.


I always ask, and never get much of an answer: Did communism fail because of its own flaws? Or did it fail because its enemies spent billions and billions and billions of dollars to make it fail?

Phat writes:

The only folks left who embraced it lived in nations too poor to ever embrace Capitalism.


That's an interesting comment on capitalism. Are you saying one has to be rich to embrace capitalism?

Phat writes:

No humans worth their salt would ever lay everything at the feet of Government.


Stop it. Stop it. Stop it.

Nobody is saying ANYTHING about government. We're talking about laying everything at JESUS' feet.
