Not So Polite Dinner Conversation – yet more money wasted by the Templeton Foundation

For those who don’t know, the Templeton Foundation is a group that is desperately trying to prove that christianity is true.

They now have this lovely website called “Explaining Atheism”, which as one can guess is a train wreck, and nothing more than christians desperate to figure out why fewer and fewer people are buying in to their lies.

  1. Sheesh. They are throwing millions of dollars at this! Trying to find the “cause” of atheism. They could throw all that money at me, I’d be happy to tell them that the “cause” of atheism is a complete lack of evidence for any of the stuff they believe about their invisible friend being true. There, done.

    But I’m pretty sure they desperately want the cause to be something that they can then try to “fix”.

  2. Templetons main goal is to try to make it appear as if science and religion have equal standing. Apologetics masquerading as meaningful discourse. They pay some lucky religious slob a huge sum every year, who they believe has helped blur the line between fact based science, and the oogity boogity of religion. Be it through a shoddy, self published, non peer reviewed paper, a book, or whatever.

    Not all that dissimilar from the Ken Ham Ark Fart in Ky.

    Templetons game is basically the same thing as Ham’s obvious con game, except Templeton attempts to maintain the aura of a well polished turd, vs. Ken Ham’s smelly shit show.

    …and people line up every year looking for the Templeton handout.

  3. “… the Templeton Foundation is a group that is desperately trying to prove that christianity is true.”
    Factually inaccurate. it’s not a christian org specifically and it’s goal isn’t to “prove christianity true”. Please do better in researching your attacks. The history of the org’s founding and founder is amazing. a little diligence would do you good.

    1. So, Barrabas, it seems you want your claims to be heard. The Templeton Foundation is a group that is despierately tryin to prove religion true, and since these are conservative christians, do tell what you think that means.

      The founder John Templeton wanted to make science and religion agree, and despite millions of dollars wasted, his foundation has failed entirely. He was a christian, though an eclectic one. This foundation has worked with creationists, climate deniers, etc. It bastardizes science in one goal: proving “God” aka the christian one, exists.

      This is shown in the relentless attempts to pretend that there is dualism, which the foundation tries to find with studies in “love”, “gratitude”, that “religion” helps health, etc. We also see their money financing the nonsense about “fine-tuning”.

      1. “Not the point and you know it.”

        Yep, I thought that would be your response to my question “Hmm, which other theists call their deity/deities “God”, BM?”

        Nice fail, BM. You know that is exactly the point since that shows your attempts to claim that the Templeton Foundation wasn’t trying to support chrsitian concepts to be false. IF your claims were true, you would have no problem in showing who else uses the term “God”.
