Marijuana is the Gateway Drug.

And Darwin is the Gateway Science.

First it's evolution. Then comes plate tectonics and the Big-Bang. Then
comes Athiesm. Then comes self-loathing and misanthropy, which leads to
elitism and superiority complexes. The resulting social ostracization leads
to homoeroticism and other perversions. The insatiable demand for money to
fund extravagances coupled with the sloth that accompanies the welfare check
creates a visceral hatred of capitalism. Finally, the abuser is no longer
able to feel for his country and multiculturalism takes over. The
transformation is complete.

I've seen it happen again and again.

Not true, of course.

For many (perhaps me - I'm still tenaciously holding onto agnosticism
despite the likes of you) atheism comes about when very stupid people try to
hold matters of faith up against the measure of science. People like you
are very successfully destroying religion from the inside out.

I hate you for it.

Oh, Legos. I dispair for you. You just phoned this one in.

I have written a lot about chemical dependency. I have also read a lot
about it. What you have ripped off is foolishness in the original; and
you have not improved it with your flaccid imitation.

Speaking of good reads, I've just read the Principia Discordia and am
rather impressed. I may have found my new religion. It becomes clear
to me that life is not unexplained order in the midst of chaos, but the
creamy gooey center of chaos itself. If you have not heard of the book
Wikipedia is pretty funny-serious on the topic:

Religion is the gateway crime.

First they find God. Then they stop working Sundays to go to church
instead. Then they stone people. Then they burn people. Then they start
wars. Then they fly aircraft into tall buildings. Then they molest
little boys. Then they lie on Usenet.

I've seen it time and time again.

It was Logos every time.

Hell of a jump from Self loathing to elitism and superiority complexes.

Ostracization comes from being excluded... duh Right? And who is the
people who shun anyone who are different if not the church? So being
alone makes you gay or pervert? What about all the saints who ARE
saints because they all lived alone, in a cave or on a mountain ect.

demand for money like every church that breeds other churches. Or
Tilton or Faldwell or any one in the 700 club who may sell special
little cloths to everyone in the name of a religion that I believe you
are trying to deffend.

> Finally, the abuser is no longer able to feel for his country

We as athiests love this country in some ways more deeply probably. You
see this country lets anyone be what ever religion they want to be or
DONT want to be and atheists as a minority are protected by the rights
of the US. So I LOVE the fact that even the minority can feel safe and
not persecuted.

and multiculturalism takes over.

Hitler did not like multiculturalism as well. But back to you... did
you not just use the words of "elitism and superiority complexes" can
you tell me what is more elitest than saying your culture is the only
one and that you do not have anything to gain from other cultures?

> The transformation is complete.

> I've seen it happen again and again.

How can you say that with blinders on?

YOu are the worst kind of religious fanatic. You are so rigid and
contradictive to your own self.

Do you realize that if Jesus came back now, he would hang out with the
gays and crack addicts...AND argue people like you?

That was his M O then and it would be again. Read your bible, it tells
you that you should have compassion and not to judge, two good things
that you have been very good at.

Enjoy your life and if you are the deffinition of a good religious
person then I have other things than logic now as to why I am not one
of you.

Nah. Gravity is the gateway science. Blame those religious nuts Galileo
and Newton, for starters. Gravity builds planets and stars, ignites
suns, makes heavier elements from hydrogen and helium, stops people
from floating off attached to their dog balloons. The most powerful
creative force in the universe, gravity is. And marijuana's crap; don't
know what all the fuss is about, I get more of a buzz from the flu.

You've seen no such thing. You are a liar and a worshipper of lies.

It will not be necessary to tell you to go to hell. You're headed there
as fast as your lying tongue can carry you.

I could suggest some shortcuts if you're interested. A lying tongue is
actually one of the slower ways to hell.

Personally I rather enjoy marijuana if it's good quality (which is

it with a tryptamine or it's unmasked his latent tendency to

Woweee!

So our would-be guru lays out the road to perdition.

So the picture is that some innocent smokes a joint, and then
meets old Darwin.

How, by means of a séance? Is spiritualism OK for fundies?

After this he feels the earth move. (WHAT was he doing at the
time?) And was this before or after the "Big Bang?

Looks as though our innocent has been visiting Logos's Pappy.
But Pappy's been born again. Many times. Logos doesn't make a clear
connection between having a Big Bang and becoming an "athiest."

After all, Pappy and Mr. Swaggart didn't become "athiests"
after their Big Bangs.

Then we make a giant leap from "Athiesm" to self-loathing and
misanthropy...........

Eureka! I've got it!

Instead of merely looking at the Sinner and making him cry,
he's torturing the rules of logic and making us all cry!

The crafty sod.

Have fun,

Not necessarily, in some cultures it leads to endless games of whist,
or the eating of unusual animal parts in idiosyncratic ways, and in
others it leads to a predilection for sequins and 1970s dance moves. In
other cultures, it leads to football or over-indulgence in romantic
literature. The field of misplaced human obsessions is worth a usenet
group all of its own.

I must say that any of these behaviours sound more enjoyable that the
fate of Logos' evo-goon.

To most people "religion" implies a belief in God and some form of worship.
Evolution justifies an atheist position (which may be why most evolutionists
would deny the existence of God) and there is the common belief that if you
remove the "divine/supernatural" and "worship" then what you have left
cannot be a religion. Thus most people here would disagree with you that
evolution is a religion. Certainly evolution is a belief system.. Now, if
you can classify humanism and atheism as religions then you would be
justified in calling evolution a religion, but most people here would deny
that because they prefer to feel that their beliefs are routed in science
and not in a popular just-so story.

I'm really leaning that way. Perhaps I still have too much naive faith
in human nature, but I have a hard time taling seriously the slam at
"multiculturalism":

"Finally, the abuser is no longer able to feel for his country and
multiculturalism takes over. The transformation is complete."

For one thing, people who are that bigotted generally can't spell
"multiculturalism".

If Logos were real instead of a troll, I'd be inclinded to disagree and
label this more as projection. What is more elitist than believing you
are God's special people? How else better to reconcile self-loathing
and elitism than the standard Christian "We all deserve to burn for
ever but I'm getting out of it because I'm Jesus' special friend?"

I like the ones where the "Darwinist" screaches and screams in
high-pitched wails of rage at the Man Of God, the latter whom stands
quietly and calmly refutes the "Darwinists" utterly. You know---- Jack
Chick comics and suchlike. I'm sure L_g_s can do as well as Chick if he

Well, I've certainly given it a fair shot, morally dubious reprobate
that I am. Being an overgrown kid and playing in very minor rock bands
gave plenty of exposure, and many of my acquaintances spent vast
amounts on the stuff, or grew quality skunk with green-fingered
enthusiasm to save a few quid. I kept on trying it 'cos they seemed to
think it worth the effort, but always felt cheated. Same with alcohol -
I like a beer or a glass of wine, but the enthusiasm with which many
people embrace the effects is beyond me. I have got hooked on this T.O.
stuff, though, and need help.

You should know better, being a Brit : That the most normal thing in
Britain is to be a theist evolutionist.

I would have assumed the same, but a recent poll showed that a substantial
number of the British now query evolution. I'd assume that this is more a
sign of scientific miseducation rather than any kind of fundamentalist
religious outbreak.

It was an Ipsos-Mori poll
(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4648598.stm) and the numbers were

Evolution: 48%
ID: 17%
Creationism: 22%

I think it could be fairly persuasively argued that because the last
two terms aren't as well known in Britain, people might have confused
the questions to mean that ID/Creationism simply implied a god that
designed the rules of the system - as opposed to actually creating
everything from scratch. The phrases "ID" and "creationism" aren't in
the public discourse, except to people with a bit of an eye on American
politics. I think most of those who selected ID/Creationism would be a
lot closer to a kind of 'theistic evolution,' but that's just a guess.

It's also good news that young people were much more likely to select
evolution, while over-55's were the group most likely to select
ID/Creationism. Things are improving, but it's obvious that science
education must get better.

It's still a huge leap from that to the situation in America:

CBS poll
(http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/11/22/opinion/polls/main657083.shtml):

God created humans in present form within the last 10,000 years: 55%
Humans evolved, god guided the process: 27%
Humans evolved without the involvement of a god: 13%

Those numbers get even worse (67% / 22% / 6%) when you factor in just
Bush voters, but get better when you factor in just Kerry voters (47% /
28% / 21%). Still pretty awful though.

Plate techtonics is only studied after natural selection?

Studying natural selection definitely leads to study of plate
techtonics?

Yes, ma'am, anything you say.

Logos only responds to the least informative replies, and pretends to
