Please note: If your parents ask you where you got your new PlayStation 2, just tell them that your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, delivered it to you via the U.S. Postal Service in exchange for your soul.
OMG I dont even know what to say lol

Attack Christ-insanity? No need, really. It is its own parody.
What other religion is so dead set against scientific progress? So anti-evolution? So anti-common sense? You don't see the Buddists or Shintoists shooting abortion doctors or upset that the government doesn't make their kid pray in school.
I'm glad you appreciate the humor, though. Didja see the big by Betty Bowers?

Then why arnt you a buddhist. It must be true if they dont do that.

Tock you have not given a convincing arguement yet. I would claim that christianity does not contradict science.

There are ALOT of christian religions .With very different beliefs . Its pretty ignorant to calassify tham all as 'contradicting science' when you have no idea what they teach . Shows an all around lack of knowledge .
but , very funny link

Well, Christian Fundamentalism in any denomination it reared its ugly head has fought science and freedom tooth and nail down through the years. It's a disease of the intellect, and will probably plague humanity for many more years to come.
But ya, that website is pretty funny . . .

John Polkinghorn was a close associate of Stephen Hawking and professor at Camebridge Univerity. He is one of the leading quatum physicists of our day. He held the theoretical chair of mathematics at Camebridge University. He was also president of Queens college at Camebridge.
''The fact that trillions of molecules instantaneously organize themselves in a hexagon (beehive) pattern when water attains a certain temperature helps us illustrate the fact that every molecule of our present body is organized by our characteristic personal pattern for this life. At death that characteristic pattern ceases to organize our corpse.
But we can picture how the characteristic personal pattern that is me can instantly be organized to give me a totally recognizable resurrection body that is suited for heaven. That answers the materialist argument that death must logically terminate our existence as persons. Whether or not physicists can explain the phenomenon does not change the usefulness of the argument.
Similarly the phenomenon of quantum entanglement helps us theologically to picture how prayer might work. Two quantum events can apparently be entangled so that what happens in one also happens instantaneously in the other at an infinite distance. This has not yet been explained by physicists, but when they do, it will not change the usefulness of the theological illustration.
When physicists were able to use wave lengths to quantify the colours of the rainbow the gullible imagined the wonder and mystery had been explained away. It was no longer an act of God. But looking with awe and wonder at a rainbow the other day, I realized that physics has by no means eliminated the purpose of the Creator.
This illustrates Paul's point that "in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom" (1 Cor.1:21). And in particular the message of the cross (1 Cor.1:17) is a "demonstration of the Spirit and of power" (1 Cor. 2:4). The mysteries of complexity theory and quantum entanglement could perhaps help our theological explanation. The death of the Messiah on the cross brought to light the mystery of sacrifice (Colossians 1:26) in the mind of God. And the quantum event of the cross was instantly entangled with every person who ever lived or will live in our world (Colossians 1:20).''

Atheism spits in the face of science.

There are many prominent counter-examples to Stephen Hawking. One is a colleague of mine at Berkeley for 18 years, Charlie Townes. Townes won the Nobel Prize for discovering the maser. One statement he made differs greatly from Hawking's view; he said, "In my view, the question of origin seems to be left unanswered if we explore from a scientific view alone. Thus, I believe there is a need for some religious or metaphysical explanation. I believe in the concept of God and in His existence."
This came from an essay written by Henry F. Schaefer. The name of the essay is Stephen Hawking the Big Bang and God.
