The Stupid! It Burns! (murky philosohical edition)

the stupid! it burns! The Real Reason Atheists Always Lose Debates:
[Luke Muehlhauser] mistakenly thinks that atheists can defend evolution on empirical grounds, but that is simply untrue. Consider the origins of life. There are concrete empirically-based objections to all atheistic scenarios and the process of science has only shown that even the simplest living cells are vastly more complex than we realized. Thus atheists are the ones who retreat into the murky realms of philosophy by arguing that I.D. is not science, and by ignoring the demarcation problem. Yet another case of atheism being undermined by modern scholarship.

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
