Quote# 1109

[Arguing for Noah's ark]

For those who don't believe consider this quote from the site:

'There comes a time when people have to learn to think for themselves. We've become lazy- we want to be told what to think; we want someone to lay it all out for us. Life gets comfortable- if we learn that Noah's Ark really existed, we may have to adjust some of our other thinking and that may not be a real pleasant prospect.'

Fixed.

"There comes a time when people have to learn to think for themselves."

Not in your case.

So its lazy to want to know how a pair of every "kind" (whatever that means in a practical sense) could fit in a space the size of the ark? Questioning where the water for the alleged flood came from and went indicates a desire to have some one else do our thinking for us? Considering the genetic problems that the flood scenario would entail is an example of not wanting to adjust our thinking?

I think you were better off just saying, "its a miracle, you just have to believe it."

Why do so many Christians think that the phrase "think for yourself" means "believe exactly what I do"?

Noah never existed and neither did the ark.

Idiots are everywhere.

How on Earth do you get from being indoctrinated into a myth and believing it because you're told you must, blindly, without any evidence, to "think for yourself"?

There is just no way this adds up. The "came to Christ willingly" agument still fails as you have no reason to believe any church doctrine at all.

The chances that Noah's Ark really existed are zero, so please excuse me while I take a sip of my coffee and move on.

Even if, and this is an enormous if (like finding bigfoot humping a unicorn if), the myth is true that still shows how much of a monster god (and I intentionally use the lower case) is for killing all but a boat full of beings.

@Alex: I bow before your wisdom and congratulate you on a victory against stupidity.
