It's not chemistry, either.

Damn right it isn't rocket science. It's also not science at all.
11/15/2005 5:03:47 AM
Right, it's called idiocy

You've really proven your point by the use of two extremes. Good for you!

The bible does not state the age of the earth.

Finally! A fundie tells it like it
1/24/2007 4:27:40 AM
Wow, finally a fundy who said something I can agree with.
1/24/2007 6:21:18 AM
It sure ain't brother.

Maybe you should listen to the rocket scientists - they might've studied geology at some stage in their distant past. They certainly would've studied physics, chemistry and cosmology.

Definitely not rocket science. If it were, then it may have been a reasonable theory.

So, he's saying that believing in the Bible isn't as difficult as rocket science?
Well I'd agree, lol. Considering that believing in the Bible doesn't take any science, just \"read what we tell you, it's true because we say so.\"

Its not rocket science, its called believing in the Bible.
Well, I can agree with that. It's also not Earth science or cultural anthropology, either.

Fundamentalism in a nutshell!

......and being too fucking thick to think for yourself.
There we have it - the difference between a fundie anb a rocket scientist.

Understatement of the year.

Blind belief is the most hilarious thing of them all.
1/18/2008 4:33:40 PM
Um, Ussher didn't write the bible, or add anything to it. The supposed age of the earth is not even mentioned therein.
How do we know for sure that all the begats are correctly and completely listed, anyway?
1/18/2008 5:10:56 PM
Actually, it's not science at all, it's called delusion.

No, it's called blindly following church tradition, and it's terribly ignorant. For all the glorification the Bible gets from these ignoramuses they so seldom are aware of it's actual contents and lessons.

Damn right it's not rocket science, rocket science requires one to have more then 3 brain cells to rub together.
It's not science period, it's just plain stupid bullshit!
1/18/2008 9:46:20 PM
Good point, there's no science in there.

---"Its not rocket science, its called believing in the Bible."---
You just said a mouthful there.
So close, yet so far.

Rocket science has diddly-squat to do with geology, geneaology or cultural history.
Does the Bible say how long Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden? Maybe they lived there ten thousand years? Some people in the Bible lived to be hundreds of years, how then do you calculate generations. Sarah was over 50 when she had Isaac, wasn't she? (Beyond childbearing years, you know.) And then we have men marrying children of 12 who bear children just a few years later.
Nope, definitely not rocket science...
