    Re: Dinosaurs according to Genesis

    alegr:
    Now, how about those marsupials (Kangaroos and such) that only live in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand? Was it him who saved them? How about penguins who live in Antarctica?

    I once heard someone argue that the reason they know there is no life on other planets is that the Bible doesn't mention it.

    By that logic, there is no such thing as a kangaroo.

    It's probably not surprising to anyone who's not a frothy-mouthed literalist that the Bible doesn't mention kangaroos.

    But I'll bet even they believe in cats.

    (For the biblically-challenged: cats are never mentioned in the Bible.  Lions and leopards, yes, but nothing like Maru or Tardar Sauce.)

    My advice to you dude, is that if you don't want to flood the sidebar with "another argument on evolution", you should understand that we're (for the most part) logical, scientifically minded people around here.

    If that were true of you, you would have immediately recognized the troll for what it is, and either ignored it, or responded in a snarky attempt to be funny, or mocked it in a self-effacing attempt to be funny.

    I disagree dude... It is entirely appropriate to respond to trolls, even if you know (or suspect) that they're trolling,

    It is. Taking them seriously makes you look like a retard. Only, in some cases, it isn't just looks ,is it?

    Eh? Is what you're recalling a thing that people should be aware of?

    Pretending to know know what they were (and implying that you are too stupid to know what Google is) only provides more evidence, son.

    I knew people in this forum were great with ridicule, but now I know they are great with building and destroying strawmen and thinking that solves it.  Sounds more like management types rather than coders.

    I know the story from the original post was laughable, but just because there are foolish people does not make The Bible or believers in general foolish.

     It is the same as "Just because there are bad <insert language here> programmers, does not mean that <insert same language here> is bad."

     I see a lot of attacks on foolish statements, but I am guessing that you avoid attacks on the contents in what we call The Bible itself because either

    1. You don't know The Bible enough to comment
    2. You know it well enough, and can't make a good argument against it or
    3. You just are having fun trolling the trolls, etc.

    From my experience in this forum, I have a tendancy to think it is mostly 3, with some of 1 and 2 thrown in.

    Goddammit, do they not teach science anymore? Gravity is a phenomenon. There are laws pertaining to it (there are also some theories that would expand upon these laws in certain circumstances).

    Meanwhile, evolution is a phenomenon that also has several theories (and probably some laws) pertaining to it.

    Most believers are in it to feel better about themselves, often at the expense of others, and don't give a shit about what the bible actually says.

     That is Most, not All. The rest become apologetics that seek to find interpretations of passages where somebody might otherwise wonder why everything in it seems to be consistent with the understanding of the world as we knew it at the time it was written. Like that stuff about there being a Ocean in the sky and people trying to reinterpret that to mean something other than "an ocean in the sky" because "it's symbolic".

     

    I also think it would be a bit arrogant to think that the Universe was created for us.Seems like a rather big playground.

    So if the world is 6000 years old, that means God took a thousand years to fix his fuck-up.

    It was self-defense. That asshole wasn't content with just destroying all their mind-controlling televisions. He was going after the innocent psychics at the control nodes. Those were just children, man. Just children!

    It took 26 years for his essence to resurface in Michael Jackson. The meld didn't completely take. He was targetting the Node Children-- just not quite in the right way.They left well enough alone for a decade and a half, hoping for the essence to just fade away. It didn't happen. They had to put him down.

    Well, he probably didn't realize it was hopelessly fucked-up until later on. And I'm sure there was lots of second chances.

    The thing I never got: whatever happened to that vengeful, Old Testament God? There are, like, so many people who deserve a good flooding now, but God's glorious floods are nowhere to be found!

    Oh, that's right, he promised he wouldn't flood anymore with the rainbow thing.* Well that sucks.


    *Boy, the gays really stuck their finger in God's eye on that one, huh?

    God: Hey, sorry I had to kill everyone but they wouldn't stop having buttsex. But here's this spectrum of visible EMR for you all to enjoy, just as my promise that I won't resort to rage-killing everybody ever again. Instead, I will lurk in the shadows and accumulate a long list of grievances that I will one day spring on you--and which I will use as justification for an eternity of torturing you. You know, like a psychotic girlfriend..

    Gay 1: O! M! G! It is fabulous! I will print it on a handkerchief and use it as a gag for when I'm thrusting my massive, rock-hard penis into my the oily, muscular buttocks of every random guy I can find!

    God: Wait, what? No, that's.. that's not what it's meant for at all. I mean, it's just kind of a memento mori of all those sodomy-loving people I just murdered.

    Gay 2: I'm going to get it tattooed on my cock so the guys on Fire Island will know it's me, even if they can't see my face!

    God: Me-dammit, no! That's not what I intended it for! Look, I'm gonna--where the hell did I put that flood machine?

    Gay 1: Oh you big silly goose! You promised you weren't going to drown us ever again! But I don't think that's going to stop me from drowning in the salty ejaculate of a thousand anonymous bathhouse guests!

    Dear God, that actually makes some degree of sense. I mean, it makes more sense than God created stars billions of light years away whose light wouldn't reach Earth until long after humanity was extinct.

    6000 seems kinda long to me. My own consciousness only goes back to 1987 or so. I have no way of proving that anything existed before I did. So I'm going to say the universe is 29, maybe 30 years old.

    The goal is to understand the actual original writings, in light of the times when they were written down and especially the language they were written in (all dead languages or dialects now, so they don't shift through time like active languages).  Also, remember, there was a wide range of people even at the time the various manuscripts that compose the cannon of The Bible were written.  What was known and believed at the time varied by region.

    I do not see anywhere in The Bible that the universe was created for us.  Actually, it seems to be created by God, for God, but that is my interpretation, not actually in there.  The only thing that it does talk about is that man was first made from the dust of the earth and then created in His image (it actually say let us create man in OUR image - plural).  Creation is then given over to man for their caretaking.  I don't think we have done a great job as caretakers.

    Ben L.:
    The person who originally wrote down the assumptions that became known as the 6000 years theory was asked to calculate how old the earth was based on The Bible.  He stated several assumptions, including:

    • There are no gaps in the Geneologies
    • The Geneologies purpose (or a purpose) is to establish time
    • Their are no gaps of time in The Bible unaccounted for.
    • Others...

    Unffortunately, at least the three assumptions listed here are known to be untrue and were known by him to be untrue.  In otherwords, he was establishing a minimum age of the earth.  Also unfortunately, some ministers got a hold of it and preached it to be as true as the Gospel, flying in the face of logic and reason from anyone who really studies The Bible.

     Though, I would like to have 1000 years to fix a support ticket.  In this case, however, the same person was both the requester and the implementer.

    No way. Reptilians can't digest peanut butter and bacon at the same time, so all the peanut butter just built up and up inside his fifth stomach. Eventually there was enough of it fermenting away in there to crush his glort bladder, the transfusions stopped working and he turned to moosh.

    Your latter statement isn't borne out by the facts. And your former is silly and hypocritical. You have no evidence of your claims, but you're just asserting things simply because you believe yourself to be correct. Which is fine, i don't really care, but don't pretend for one second that your faith is any more reasonable than theirs.

    We don't know exactly what they can do, but we know what they can't do. If the universe were 6.000 years old due to accelerations, space deformation, or even the speed of light changing, there would be dire consequence, including no star existing, or even no matter at all existing. Dark matter is not a MacGuffin that can lead to everything, it's not because we don't know everything about it that it can change physical laws in any way needed.

     Now, the main point is still : believing in bible is not inherently stupid, but believing in biblical inerrency, plus the strange concept that none of thoses story are parable, do lead to crazy theory. I mean, the Bible never say that God is supposed to have created the universe in a way we can grasp. The whole Tree of Knowledge story seem even to imply that this knowledge is either forbidden or harmful to humans.

    Also, in the time where the bible was revealed, a big bang-like explanation would have been both completely impossible to undestand and way unnecessary. Bible is supposed to explain how to behave and honor god, not how to understand the way world work behind the scene, and adding 500.000 page of physical law explanation seem unwise compared to putting a parable that double as a moral explanation.

    Well, obviously he wouldn't have to take any fish or aquatic mammals, which already removes a very percentage part of all animals. Insects aren't very big either, which is another big slice.

    And finally, he didn't need to take all animals that we know today. Never heard of evolution? Sheez.

    I also think it would be a bit arrogant to think that the Universe was created for us.Seems like a rather big playground.

    It was self-defense. That asshole wasn't content with just destroying all their mind-controlling televisions. He was going after the innocent psychics at the control nodes. Those were just children, man. Just children!

    It took 26 years for his essence to resurface in Michael Jackson. The meld didn't completely take. He was targetting the Node Children-- just not quite in the right way.They left well enough alone for a decade and a half, hoping for the essence to just fade away. It didn't happen. They had to put him down.

    A far more plausible plan was that the CIA was (as they tended to do) dealing drugs to finance off-book operations, and Elvis was a narc.

    Seems to depend upon which translation you're reading.  One of them apparently interprets the instruction as three mated pairs plus one extra for use in sacrifices.

    I'd even say that we can't know the length of a year a few thousand years ago, as the Earth's orbit could have been changed along the way by meteors, but that kind of drowns in all the other inaccuracies.
     

     Well, if everything is possible, then there's a leeeeettle bit of a problem with explanations.

    And, BTW, if you don't trust anyone - why do you still breathe? I've released 3.12 million specially crafted bacteria 512.6 years ago, and they're all accumulating in your lungs right now.

     

    No, seriously - Are you really trying to establish every commonly accepted fact (like the gold plating) by yourself? Then better start with Lambda Calculus, basic Algebra, Set Theory, and so on. But then you'll be quite busy for quite a long time. Have a lot of fun!

    [citation needed] I know of a few unsubstantiated stories about this, but no credible evidence they actually dealt drugs. Although it wouldn't surprise me if it happened once or twice, I doubt it was anything approaching central policy.
