What Came First: the Chicken or the Egg?

Which came first – the chicken or the egg? Science has provided the answer to the age-old dilemma, but modern philosophers have a similar conundrum today. Can science eventually answer this as well?

Absence of Evidence Applies Differently Between Science and Religion

In religion, which makes unfalsifiable claims or untestable claims, absence of evidence is almost always evidence of absence. However, in science absence of evidence does not always mean that there is no evidence. Science does not make unfalsifiable or untestable claims. Instead science strives to understand the world around us and scientists make testable predictions. Sometimes these predictions don’t always have direct evidence. For example, Darwin did not have half the evidence we have today when he penned the theory of evolution. I asked the question to the Godless Engineer during our discussion of the historicity of Jesus so that he can clarify this for our audience.

With all the extinct religions and the lack of evidence in contemporary religions, especially the claims to the contrary, I can succinctly say that religion is bullshit.

According to Philly.com,

Albert A. Young was a wolf disguised as a sheep, lying in wait for an opportunity to use his role as a religious leader to perpetrate the sickest of crimes, authorities believe.

The 49-year-old self-styled “apostle” of Total Deliverance Ministries, at 22nd and Norris streets in North Philadelphia, was jailed late last week, accused of using his ministry not only to preach the Gospel but to perpetrate a sexual crime against his 15-year-old mentally challenged niece, police sources said.

Young was with his niece in the ministry office on the evening of Aug. 12 when he made her sit in his lap and began touching her sexually, putting his hands inside the girl’s pants, fondling her buttocks and kissing her neck, according to a police affidavit obtained yesterday by the Daily News.

Young continued to touch the girl, at one point pressing and rubbing his clothed genitals against her and taking her hand to make her touch him, the document says.

When he was finished, the document says, the pastor warned the girl not to tell anybody about it.

But she did – launching an investigation into Young, who is referred to as an “apostle” on the bright, yellow sign posted outside his purple-stone corner church.

After a warrant was issued for Young, police arrested him Thursday at his rowhouse on Chew Avenue in Ogontz. He is charged with unlawful sexual contact with a minor, corruption of minors and indecent assault of a child.

Court records show that Young posted 10 percent of $50,000 bail on Friday.

No one answered the door yesterday at Young’s rowhouse flanked by an unkempt front lawn bordered by a low, white fence. The doors to the ministry on Norris Street were locked, and phone numbers listed for the church – including the one emblazoned on its sign next to a cross – were not in service when a reporter called.

Young is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Nov. 19.

Kirk Cameron: Pagans Stole Christmas from Christians!

So this idiot is saying that pagans stole Christmas, when it was actually the Christian church that stole Christmas from Saturnalia and other pagan celebrations. If you are to believe the biblical story, then a birth day of December 25th is not supported.

Shepherds were not in the fields watching the flock in December (Luke 2:7-8) and Mary and Joseph supposedly came to Bethlehem to register in a Roman Census (Luke 2:1-4). Roman censuses were never taken in winter because the roads would freeze and would be in poor condition. The journey would be a struggle to survive.

You can also compare internally the age of John (who was in the second trimester when Jesus was conceived Luke 1:8-13, 23-24) and come to the conclusion that September was the birth month for Jesus.

Finally, there is Jeremiah 10:1-4, which is a strict commandment to not join in on the practice of bringing a “Christmas tree” into your home because it is a pagan ritual.
“Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.”

Now that we got that out of the way, why in the world would you get your biblical knowledge from someone that obviously never even read their bible? Schooled by a biblical scholar.
