I know, I know - if we call the dumb hicks out for being dumb hicks, they get pouty and stubborn and double down on the dumb-hickery just to teach us a lesson.

But in the name of all that's holy and unholy, Arizona, could you try to not embrace the stereotype? I've been to Phoenix, you have what looks like a fairly advanced civilization, what is with this?
Easy for a degenerate like yourself to paint a broad picture as to what people of faith believe. What ever self serving world you live in, insulting a group of people only shows your lack of understanding in the human condition and your true ignorance into what the Bible truly teaches . What ever you think you know or think you are, you are truly nothing in this universe in the big scheme of things....professor.


There's no use in trying to convince anyone, including yourself that there is a GOD. Circumstances will arise in life that will make you question everything, and at your precibus, you will change one way or another.

Yeah if Noah's flood was global, and Biblical literalists believe that it was, then the entire world populated by the descendants of Adam and Eve was destroyed around 2300 BC and our entire population today (as well as the entire animal kingdom) is descendant from one family and all the animals that left the ark. Nevermind the fact that isn't even possible and we have written history from other civilizations that go back farther than 2300 BC.

This is what the GOP wants our public schools teaching as literal fact to the next generation.

People can believe whatever they want. It's when they want their belief taught as fact in a science class we have a problem.

Oh. I dunno. The Jewish Carpenter had some pretty fine insights on man's responsibility for his fellow man. The creation myths are interesting, but hardly more so than those of other religions.

Completely true. I'm a ghost that controls a skeleton wrapped in hamburger clinging to the surface of a tiny world that hurls through empty space circling a nuclear reactor, and I'll do so for few decades before I wear out. So are you. Thing is, I have the nerve to look that fact in the eye.

Funny, because it seems like that's exactly what the creationists are doing right now.

OK, I may need a diagram.

Does Trump believe this to be true? Because if Trump says its true then all opposing viewpoint would be fake news by definition, thereby making this news true. I'm going to have to wait and hear what Trump thinks about this before I make an official statement about what I believe.

Well, neither are you especially something in the universe. I see no compelling reason at all why anyone should pay attention to your beliefs.

However, just as astrology doesn’t belong in an astronomy course and alchemy doesn’t belong in a chemistry course, except as historical footnotes, neither does creationism belong in a biology course. Of course, by the same token, no one thinks a biology prof has any authority to control your church’s Sunday school curriculum.

Also, please explain by what means you know whether a total stranger is a degenerate. And don’t say that a non-creationist (quite a few christians are non-creationists, BTW) is degenerate by definition. Because that would be painting a broad picture of how people of different beliefs than you live their personal lives. And Jesus said something pertinent about that at least once.

Not to mention all the extra animals he'd have to bring along to feed the carnivores.

And Noah was purportedly 600 years old when he did all this. I mean, what's not to believe?

Good God, these are the people who think they are qualified to educate our children. What a terrifying thought.

WAR ON CHRISTMAS COMING...incoming!!!

Next thing you are going to tell us the Easter Bunny is not real......

One way we know that Jews are not exaggerating the Hanukkah story. Think about it - it's very possible that a candle or lamp would "run on fumes" for a couple days. So it's not like the claim that I pulled a woman out of my rib....it's just a "hey, we had some good luck' type of story.

That said- having been taught all the Jewish and other biblical myths in Sunday School......I was somewhat shocked to find out recent truths.....

Jews didn't build the pyramids.
Moses never existed.
Therefore ALL the stories and fables around both are untrue.

You can ask the lead historian at Hebrew University in Israel about this and he will tell you the same thing. It turns out he has to school the entire crowd at Passover each year. The simple facts are easy enough - Jews didn't exist for vast numbers of generations AFTER the Pyramids were built. It would have been tough to build them when you didn't exist!

Even harder to build them and not leave a single Jewish bone or body there.
