The Dark Ages Are Over, Ray

Ray made a rather sickening post juxtaposing a starving child with a description of the LHC. His motive? Ray hates science and knowledge. The more that science uncovers, the more evidence against his unfounded beliefs, the more time he has to spend inventing nonsense to throw at the wall and see what sticks.

Contrary to what you and your cohorts like Ben Stein claim, Ray, science does not lead you to killing people nor does it harm society. To the contrary, Ray, science has been a major benefit to society; there is no way we could sustain over six billion people otherwise. You frequently post on how atheists should give respect and reverence to God because he, supposedly, gave us life and provided for us. Why don't you, Ray, a 58 year old man, take your own advice and give some respect to the science that has provided the vaccinations and cures to protect you from your God's pestilence, as well as the science that has allowed you to live so long and so comfortably (in your $250,000 home). Hypocrite.

And I don't want to hear any of this nonsense about investing ten billion dollars into science and juxtaposing it with starving children. The great thing about science is that discovering new principles and facts about the universe leads to inventions and contributions in other areas of science. Before we should even give one thought to the idea of investing ten billion dollars into science and juxtaposing that with starving children, we should first look at all the frivolous hundreds of thousands of luxurious, ostentatiously extravagant churches. Why don't you give up some of your $100k+/year salary and $250,000 home and give that to the starving child, Ray? Hypocrite.

It's not the Dark Ages, Ray. I know science scares you because you don't understand it (not even gravity) and it threatens your primitive beliefs and contradicts your ancient, antiquated texts, but the Dark Ages are over. Quit attacking science and go back to leading your flock astray.

Your audacity never fails to put me in a state of awe, you arrogant dolt.

Two words for Ray: Norman Borlaug.
