    What if the Quran was correct or if the real god wanted you to recognize that the god of the Bible is evil and should be rejected. Your belief hurt you in those...

    Atheism is all about personal responsibility. We don’t believe our mistakes can be washed away.

    Christianity is all about the hope that we won’t be held accountable for our mistakes and...

    It is the best analogy there is for a lay person to understand how DNA works. It breaks down when you compare what is happening at a physical level, but that is where it really counts for the...

    DNA isn’t a software program. I don’t agree. Organism do NOT appear to be programmed like a computer. The analogy doesn’t go nearly that far.

    Wow. I hope you didn’t take molecular biology at Tech.

    How does oxygen know what it reacts with? Where did it get its information?

    If it helps you to think of DNA as software (as it does...

    It all depends on how you define life. By classic definitions, the earliest form of life that we are aware of is bacteria. But forms of information, randomly assembled, could have preceded it. We...

    At what level of complexity do you start calling something “life”? Is a virus “life”? Because it contains “information.”

    Too much information?

    The information that cells have today wasn’t random. The information that started the first “life” that led to that first cell probably was. That is how evolution works. ...

    It isn’t a matter of logic, it is a matter of fact. Why couldn’t life come from nonlife?
