Quote# 80151

Except that's incorrect. I don't know if you're lying, or just ignorant of the facts, but Paganism forces its way into Science class more than anything.

We have planets named Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc.
We have no planets named "Noah".

We have elements named Neptunium, Promethium, etc.

We have no elements named "Moses".

Hatred of Theism fills the Universities, though. They force their hatred upon theism in no subtle way, actually banging you on the head with a hammer, in trying to make anti theism look like strength and victory. We know this because of team names.

Unless you live in a fantasy world where we have the Duke Blue Angels, the DePaul Blue Christians, the Arizona State Sun Angels, the Mississippi Valley State Angels, and the Wake Forest Screaming Jesus Men.

But I live in the real world.

"But I live in the real world. "

I doubt it.

My sports team is names the Mujahideen. Is that religious enough for you?

"... actually banging you on the head with a hammer ..."

That's not normal procedure in any college science class I ever took. But if drstyx persisted in spouting his drivel on a campus, that might turn out to be the only rebuttal he could understand.

"But I live in the real world."

So, Planet Bizzaro is a "real world" now?

1. More kinds of theism than just Judaism and its scions, mind you.

2. I doubt that the Hebrews of old called the planets Noa et al. I'm not sure WHAT they called them, though; for all I know, they borrowed names from their neighbors, such as Shaher for Venus.

We have planets named Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc. We have no planets named "Noah".

The Bible contains almost no astronomy. The ancient Jews don't appear to have been much interested in it. They also didn't associate the planets with gods the way the Greeks did. So they had no reason to name the planets.

Some religious people might find naming elements after biblical characters a bit offensive

Atheism/any religion other than mine=Paganism.

Greater Good

Weren't the first four/five planets named by the Romans? Of course, they just thought that they were wandering stars. Once people invented telescopes and discovered new planets, my guess is that they just stuck with the Roman god theme.

Oh, and your naming of sports teams is fail. You had to resort to "angel" twice in just four examples? Would half of all teams be named the Angels? How boring :P

Translation: "Something isn't named after MY mythical people/beings...stop oppressing me!!Help ,help, I'm being oppressed!"

"Wake Forest Screaming Jesus Men."
I find this one particularly halarious.

3/22/2011 8:44:45 AM


"Screamin' Jesus Men"...like drystyx, here.

Oh, and why, pray tell, does said "screaming Jesus man" have "styx" in his name? Shouldn't it be dryhell or drysheol or drygehenna or dry-put-yer-random-Judeo-Christian-death-or-hell-reference-right-here?

Go Team!

I think 'Kansas City Christfuckers' has a nice ring to it.

3/22/2011 8:59:36 AM

He's right, you know. There isn't a single NCAA football team nickname that is even remotely religious.

Otherwise I think this is just a Poe, trolling.

3/22/2011 9:02:47 AM

... but just as a counter-argument, minor planet 7100 is named 'Martin Luther'.

3/22/2011 9:06:10 AM


Wake Forest Screaming Jesus Men

ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha :-D

BTW Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune all names of GODS.
Noah and Moses were just imaginary PEOPLE.

3/22/2011 9:24:36 AM

"Wake Forest Screaming Jesus Men"

Great band name or greatest band name?

3/22/2011 9:27:19 AM

Zeus Almighty

Tell you what, we'll name the next element in honor of fundies -- "stupidium." It will be the densest element in the universe.
And the University of Georgia will no longer be the Bulldogs but instead the "Drooling Godbots."

3/22/2011 9:28:30 AM


What about the God particle? You know, the one that has fundies' undies in a knot because some considere it blasphemy just looking for it?

There's just no pleasing you lot is there?

This HAS to be a troll. Nobody is that stupid.

3/22/2011 9:52:24 AM


What the hell is this supposed to be?

3/22/2011 9:54:02 AM


Silly! The planets were named after the gods even before the advent of Christianity. the Babylonians called them after their gods. Nergal, for instance, was their equivalent of Mars, and that is what they called the planet we know by it's Latin name.

Uranus even enters into the Lord's Prayer in ancient and modern Greek - Ouranos simply heaven/heavens as well as the father of the older gods.

Try getting some learning so as not to make such an ass* of yourself.

* English meaning. If I meant 'arse' I would have said so... although... :-)

BTW, there is a difference between Theism and Christianity that Christians would probably not find acceptable.

Most hilarious, this screed is trying to prove the point that followers of other gods are trying to force their religion into science, since he quotes this post at the top of his.

"Well, for example, the followers of those gods are not trying to force their religion into my country's science classes."

Shit, the Norse are INSIDIOUS, getting their gods into Kindergarden with the days of the week.

Churchy LaFemme

What, no complaint about the days of the week or months? I suppose we should keep Sunday, as long as we spelled in Sonday, following it with Mattday, Markday, Lukeday, Johnday, Paulday and Maryday? Or should we rename the months after the twelve apostles?

3/22/2011 10:16:00 AM


Is this person really seriously suggesting that we rename the planets and football teams after biblical figures? This fanatical insistence that nothing is permissible other than an incredibly narrow interpretation of Christianity is really disturbing.
