.........and I agree with him, 100%!

{Although I believe when we die that is it.....the end.....I wouldn't mind being surprised with being reunited in some fairytale land with all of my loved ones....including my dogs and cats. LOL}

The problem with the above is that the claims listed as "According to science" are not claims of science at all. What experiment establishes someone's beauty? That isn't science, that is California style self esteem fluffery.

Strictly speaking you are right, but in a joke thread, I think the point is pertinent: that Christianity tends to belittle humanity and rubbish this life in hopes to sell a super-humanity and a next one.

Mind, that doesn't stop them whining about how evolution somehow degrades humanity.

Science tends rather to focus on how great is our potential and what a win this life is, here and now.

For me it is more positive to regard us as amazingly brilliant primates than as hopelessly failed angels,who can only be saved by a dieu ex machina. Which cannot be found in any wings or flies that we have yet examined.

.
In a joke thread? I don't really see how that contribution qualifies as humor or even an attempt at humor. It is distorted propaganda. It not only misrepresents science, it also misrepresents Christianity which is not a doctrine which tells people that they are weak, dumb and nothing, it is a doctrine which says we will not exclude you simply because you are weak, dumb or nothing.

With the vast array of good reasons to select science over mythology, this misrepresentation of matters strikes me as absent any worth.

Sorry Arq and Seeker, I have to say I'm with Grandstander on this one. That picture is too contrived to be genuine.
The words are obviously written by an adult and foisted on a child who was told to give us her best smile. Kids that age don't use words like 'flawed' 'potential' and 'damaging'. They don't care whether science or religion is damaging them (science damaging?) they are too busy climbing trees and playing with dolls or cars. It's someones misplaced views foisted onto a kid and shoved on the internet, which is a bit odd in my view.
Plus everything Grandstander said.
