Quote# 27932

[All emphasis present in original.]

Let's try this again --- if it contradicts the Bible --- I automatically reject it.

I study it, and if something contradicts Scripture --- it's toast.

For instance:

* Science says the universe is 20 billion years old? This does not contradict Scripture. Therefore I take their word for it.
* Science says we came from chimpanzees? This does contradict Scripture. Therefore I automatically reject it.
* Science says varves exist? This does not contradict Scripture. Therefore I take their word for it.
* Science says varves are evidence of tens of thousands of years of history? This does contradict Scripture. Therefore I automatically reject it.

"I know the truth, don't confuse me with facts".

Pretty typical of this poster, though.

"I won't believe it until the bible tells me to!!"

Not so much "I know the truth, don't confuse me with facts" but rather "I know the truth and I'll throw out any facts that contradict it".

Head Up My Ass Award seconded.

Wow. It's like arguing with someone who thinks the sky is green.

The Bible doesn't mentioned the Internet, either. It must not exist.

Fundamentalism in a Nutshell.

Actually, science does not say that. It says we share a common ancestor.

20 billion year old universe DOES contradict scripture. You can do the ol' "it's not literal; it's allegory/metaphor" apologetic, but then you might as well do the same for ape/human common ancestry thing and not be retarded about it.

P.S. Science does not say we came from chimpanzees, nor does it says varves are evidence of tens of thousands of years of history. Rather, humans and chimps have common and ancestry, and varves are evidence of millions of years of geological history.

What happens when scripture contradicts itself? Does your head explode?

Let's try this again --- if it contradicts the Bible --- I automatically reject it.

I reject your reality and substitute my own!

* Science says the universe is 20 billion years old? This does not contradict Scripture. Therefore I take their word for it.

Where does Scripture say the universe is 20B? Even so, I applaud your efforts... I think O.o

* Science says we came from chimpanzees?

No.

* Science says varves exist? This does not contradict Scripture. Therefore I take their word for it.
* Science says varves are evidence of tens of thousands of years of history? This does contradict Scripture. Therefore I automatically reject it."

And yet you said the universe was 20B years old? So which is it?

"Let's try this again --- if it contradicts the Bible --- I automatically reject it."

Because, of course, a bunch of unsophisticated nomads living in a desert can know so much more than modern scientists. This, you say as you type on your computer in your big, air-conditioned house.

"I study it, and if something contradicts Scripture --- it's toast."

Do yourself a favor and see whether, any bit of modern medicine contradicts scripture (it does).

Or whether bats are birds. Or whether rabbits chew their own cud. Or (even better) whether camels have split hooves.

Looks like you'd still have to at least think about what you're reading, eh?

If it contradicts AV1611VET, I automatically embrace it.

I keed, I keed.

Seriously though, fundamentalism in a nutshell.

Genesis 1 contradicts Genesis 2. Which do you reject?

8/4/2007 8:37:50 PM

Along the same lines as Hawker Hurricane, Matthew 1 contradicts Luke 3. So which do you reject?

"Science says we came from chimpanzees" is a Lie therefore I reject you.

You rejecting it doesn't mean its not true.

* Science says varves are evidence of tens of thousands of years of history? This does contradict Scripture. Therefore I automatically reject it.


I have absolutely no idea where this guy came up with either of those, as the Bible is entirely silent on the subject.

Those two statements also contradict each other, since have a 20 billion year old universe would make for more than tens of
thousands of years of history.

* Science says the universe is 20 billion years old
* Science says we came from chimpanzees
* Science says varves exist
* Science says varves are evidence of tens of thousands of years of history


...And this concludes AV1611VET's entire knowledge of modern science. Thank you and good night, folks.

Pi is not equal to three,the sun does not revolves around the earth, the earth is not flat,donkeys and snakes can't talk, a global flood never happened...... But if you would rather ignore facts and you would rather think that the writings of bronze age sheep herders is the answer for everything, go ahead. This is Fundamentalism in a Nutshell + Head Up My Ass.

Science says insects have six legs? This does contradict Scripture. Therefore, you have to reject it.

Hollio: I have absolutely no idea where this guy came up with either of those, as the Bible is entirely silent on the subject.

That's what he means. The Bible doesn't directly contradict the evidence in these two cases, ergo, the evidence may be allowed. This time. But you just watch yourself before you try and slip some of that thar evoLEWshun in mah edjamackayshun.

Those two statements also contradict each other, since have a 20 billion year old universe would make for more than tens of thousands of years of history.

Not really. 20 billion is tens and tens and tens and tens and tens and tens and... you get the idea. He doesn't say how many tens of thousands. :P
