And this was a time when the greatest civilizations were ever built.
There were some pretty impressive civilizations around more than 6000 years ago. Get your head out of your ass and you might learn something.

Christians who believe in evolution or a \"symbolic\" interpretation of what became the Bible are NOT Baptists. Period.
5/2/2007 1:32:47 AM
\"Christianity and evolution are completely incompatible.\"
Really? How so? Or do you simply mean evolution and science are incompatable with fundie Christianity?
5/2/2007 2:00:44 AM
Guess I'm not a True Christian™, then. Since I don't feel Genesis (the first account of creation in my NRSV - Catholic Edition, Bible) inherently contradicts with evolution. The Bible states days, yes, but never specific timing. For all we know, a 'day' to God, could be millions of years.
Also, you're an arrogant dick to think YOU have any say on whether a person is Chritian or not. But you're a Fundie, so being arrogant goes without saying, really.

The lack of written records of the time before writing existed proves that evolution is false!
I guess if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, it really DOESN'T make a sound.

The Chinese have maintained a coherent, reliable record of their history back more than 5000 years. (Which, by the way, also contains a pretty definitive description of dog domestication.) The Egyptians go back nearly as far.
5/2/2007 2:17:00 AM
Our own history only goes back a few thousand years. And this was a time when the greatest civilizations were ever built. But before that? Nothing. Zip. Nada. Explain that one.
I don't get it... Um, prehistory's not nothing. There just aren't any man-made records of it.
5/2/2007 2:19:36 AM
Easy. The civilizations hadn't devolped yet. How can several sophisticated and distinct cultures all around the globe arise from a single white family in the span of a few hundred years, not including a mass extinction in the form of a flood.
5/2/2007 2:26:29 AM
But before that? Nothing. Zip. Nada. Explain that one.
wth? didn't 'god' exist?? how the hell do you \"explain that one\"??
5/2/2007 2:40:38 AM
Writing wasn't invented yet. There, explained.
5/2/2007 2:49:12 AM
*sigh* Another victim of young-earth propaganda.
There is a historical record going well before \"a few thousand years\" ago. It's all over cave walls, in carved statues and figurines, in stone tools and old cooking pits and dumping grounds. How else does he think we've plotted the probable migration of humanity outward from Africa? Oh, wait, a young-earth fundie doesn't believe that either.

So YECs are the only true Christians. Fascinating. I guess all 11 years of Bible study, accepting Christ as my personal savior and learning more about how the Big Guy does His thing and how to live by His Word amounts to nothing.
5 Squeebounces, and be thankful that it doesn't go higher.

Okay, well you see, your book isn't reality. People that couldn’t have had any idea that the earth was 4.6 billion years old wrote it. Hell, they probably didn't have a concept of a number that high. Talk to a ten-year old, their whole life revolves around the last five years of their life. The guys writing the bible figured the time to be right, but it was wrong. That's because you think that god wrote the bible, but men who only knew so much about the world thousands of years ago wrote it. Even today there is great difficulty building nearly mile-high buildings, yet ancient man and \"god\" thought a tower of babel was going to reach to \"heaven\" which we see must be out in space a few million light years, because those dudes weren't coming anywhere near it. We've been up there and there is no heaven in the clouds.
If you'd like to know more about science or reality, please visit your local library.

Fundies can not agree with science because they don't want to. All other Christians can, because they want to learn. Strange, that, eh?
5/2/2007 6:07:46 AM
In that case, explain to me why the archaeologists have found Jericoh, and Mari, the oldest towns in history, and have dated it to 8000 BC, why the tools for the first men date back to 20,000 years at least, and, moreover, the timeline for dog domestication is, from the DNA samples we gathered, 12,000 BC. Now, pick a book of history and less homeschooling.

I'm so glad we have Lachlan here to explain to us what a True ChristianTM is, otherwise we might be fooled by all the fake Christians running around. I know I'll sleep better tonight.
5/2/2007 1:28:54 PM
Evidence says you're wrong.
5/2/2007 1:30:01 PM
But before that? Nothing. Zip. Nada. Explain that one.
Duh ... the invention of writing?
5/2/2007 2:59:04 PM

Ummu has definitely got the right idea.
5/2/2007 4:36:10 PM
Some would agree that Christianity and evolution are incompatible. They're usually the ones who hold the Bible to be the inerrant word of god.
I see the Bible as pure bullshit and have absolutely no problems with evolution because it has evidence to back up its claims.
5/2/2007 5:31:08 PM
Fundy history is a hoot.
5/2/2007 7:52:20 PM
The perfect marriage of content and username.
I wonder if he'd be willing to borrow his kilt and sporran...

If we don't have it, we need a Lachlan MacLeod award for defending the honor of True Scotsmen everywhere (and embarassing a lot of True Christians and True Non-Christians in the process).
