Jesus and the Aliens

Hemant Mehta shared the image below, offering it as a response to Ken Ham’s silly remarks that we should not be looking for aliens, since they are doomed to hell because God became man and not Klingon: IO9 also had a piece dealing with the range of Christian responses to the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Ray Comfort Hates Science and the Bible Equally

I am pretty certain at this stage that Ray Comfort is someone who is intentionally trying to make Christianity look bad. Just look at this Facebook post of his, which P. Z.

Evolution Misunderstood or Misrepresented?

The British Center for Science Education shared this example of how the ACE curriculum depicts evolution: I’ve encountered people who genuinely accept this depiction as being what evolution posits. If you are one of them and you do not know how the bottom is very different from what biologists mean when they talk about evolution, [Read More...]
