Science - Not Fiction

By Credo Quia Absurdum

Christadelphians have sought to portray themselves as "A religion that makes sense" - as the old tract has it. In doing so they reject much of what mainstream Christianity includes, such as belief in the existence of malevolent supernatural forces - which certainly makes sense in the modern scientific world. And they go considerably further than the biblical authors who clearly understood that there were demons amongst the evil supernatural beings that were opposed to god.

The UK bans the teaching of creationism as science in all publicly funded schools

The Ken-Cat
By Christadelphian Ken Gilmore

Excellent news indeed. Via i09
Back in 2012, the UK government banned all future free schools from teaching creationism as science, requiring them to teach natural selection. At the time, however, it didn't extend those requirement to academies, nor did the changes apply to existing free schools. The new verbiage changes this, precluding all public-funded schools — present or future — from teaching creationism as evidence-based theory. 

No Heritage College for Birmingham (Thank God)

WE WON!!!
By Joseph Strong

The attempt by the Christadelphians to establish a Heritage College in the UK (Birmingham) has failed again. In a typically evasive Christadelphian worded statement issued on FaceBook the application team blamed an interview with the New Schools Network charity. The statement is slightly ambiguous and gives the impression that following the interview, no application to open a school was actually made. citing feedback from the interview, it seems that they just gave up before they really started. 

Denial of Supernatural Elements of Scripture

By Ex-Christadelphian Tim Woodall

One key aspect of Christadelphian theology which helps explain it is the denial of many supernatural elements in scripture that most of mainstream Christianity believes.  Man to them is a physical being.  He doesn’t have an immaterial soul or spirit.  Neither does God also for that matter.  Nor is there a devil.  This simply refers to “sin in the flesh”.  Nor are there demons.  This simply refers to mental illness, epilepsy and other disorders.

Yet another flawed attack on Evolutionary Creationism by David Burges and The Testimony - 4 (A Ken-Cat article)

Barbie and Ken
Editor's Note: I bring you a remarkable piece of Christadelphian history. Christadelphians have debated each other before and on rare occasions one protagonist has outgunned the other to the point that the loser was blown out of the water. But never before have we seen the Christadelphian equivalent of the night-time carpet bombing of Tokyo towards the conclusion of the Second World War, coupled with the two atomic bomb detonations at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in which the loser is vaporised out of all existence to the point that even the electrons, protons and neutrons of his very atoms have been broken down into their particle constituents and then shot into the Quantum Void and most likely ended up in a quite different Universe to the one in which we live. :)

Fractal Wrongness and why it is not a good idea

Source

Fractal wrongness is the state of being wrong at every conceivable scale of resolution. That is, from a distance, a fractally wrong person's worldview is incorrect; and furthermore, if you zoom in on any small part of that person's worldview, that part is just as wrong as the whole worldview.

There's no such thing as 'atheistic' science. It's just science.

The Ken-Cat (Ken Gilmore)
meets Lawrence Krauss
By Christadelphian Ken Gilmore
(The best Ex-Christadelphian writer we never had)

Physical anthropologist and evangelical Christian James Kidder has commented on former YEC James MacMillan's ongoing series of posts at Panda's Thumb detailing how YECs intellectually wave away the evidence for evolution. Kidder's comment is worth noting, as it mirrors the deeply flawed thinking of the evolution denialists in our community who seem to think that science is intrinsically anti-theistic:

Beans on Toast and Evolutionary Creationism (with new cartoon)

By John Bedson

There is a story about a group of young people who went on a camp but forgot to take any food with them. In the evening they set up their tents and the camp leader discovered that they were hungry with nothing to eat. When asked what was for dinner he replied:

"If we had some beans, we could have beans on toast; if we had some toast."

The Resurrection of Mancott

By John Bedson

As Ex-Christadelphians we are opposed to bodily resurrection. We prefer the thrill of only living once and having to cram our into our lifetimes a few short years of suffering and mortality.

The Christadelphian belief of living in ecstasy for untold trillions of years without end sounds boring to us. We think that they should be careful what they wish for, as they might live to regret it for a very long time.
