    Whenever anyone tries to prove (or disprove) the existence of God based purely on science, that person:

    A. Is profoundly ignorant of scientific discipline

    B. Has an ulterior motive

    C. Both A & B


    Which do you think is most common?

    It's always the same and I'm surprised you'd even need to ask.

    Getting people to question what they know.

    So why didn't you include a "None of the above" in your poll?

    Because that's not a possiblity. This is a poll question, not a multiple choice question. :cuckoo:

    "Employing science in a debate about God's existence most commonly betrays?"

    That's vague, employing science to prove or disprove or as part of some point on the side?

    "A profound ignorance for scientific discipline"

    Must one be categorized as profoundly ignorant, there is no other category?

    "An ulterior motive"

    Such as?

    Shat-head is right, you need to re-take Polls 101.

    OTOH, although I often take our board resident Darwin thumping athetsts to task for bothering to whine about believers, I ALSO recognize that the bible thumpers, if left to their own devices, would turn our nation into a repressive theocracy, too.

    Keep your religion (or your lack of it) out of my lifestyle, please

    Thank you in advance for shutting the fuck up.

    Yours, completely indifferent to your believe systems,

    Perhaps I should have replaced "profound" with "fundamental."
