Nobel Prize for (drum roll . . . ) god
Two Americans and an Israeli, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Thomas A. Steitz, and Ada E. Yonath, have won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for explaining how the DNA code is translated into life.
Good for them, and humanity - well, except that weirdo bunch over at blog.beliefnet.com
Here is what they say about this feat of great work: -
What strikes me today, however is that scientists who receive these honors win such praise for what they discover, not what they create. Through their cleverness, hard work, and remarkable brilliance, they have asked new questions and devised creative methods to unwrap hidden mysteries in the universe. But their success is detective work, not invention. This year's award for the explanation of how ribosomes work is notable and certainly deserved. But these scientists discovered wonder that was already there - put there by the Creator!(Their exclamation point)
WTF? Are these people just a bunch of cwazy wabbits?
I am putting the link to this inanity in full here (not as a link) because I want you to savor the full extent of it - I am not encouraging you to go there, just read the url: http://blog.beliefnet.com/prayerplainandsimple/2009/10/nobel-prize-in-chemistry-2009-deserves-praise-to-god.html 'Prayer plain and simple' . . . 'deserves-praise-to-god'? Bunch of cracker ass crackers.
Beliefnet's god did not create ribosomes, if he did, why doesn't it say it the bible; 'Thou shall not covet thy neighor's ribosomes'? (unless he meant rhubarb patch, which is something worth coveting.
These guys think they are in Socrates' cave whereas, in fact, they have their heads up their collective religious ass.
