Quote# 3138

By the way, your argument regarding all the failed prophecies regarding the time of the Rapture would be equivalent to those prior to the Wright Brothers who presented all the failed attempts at human flight as proof that human flight would never occur. Guess how that turned out.

Well since we now know that the Write Brothers were NOT the first to fly, you lose.

Yeah, except that flight concerns predictable physical phenomena, rather than a bunch of old mythology.

I nominate this post for the Worst Analogy Ever award.

I'll second that. Talk about unrelated.

Well, possibly not the worst analogy ever, but it's definitely one of the worst I've heard.

I'm fairly sure that the wright brothers claimed to simply be engineers... Not omnipotent deities who created the heavens and the earth... You can allow the wright brothers a few mistakes... But I can't see why god would be REPEATEDLY fucking up the date!

It turned out, that it didn't take thousands of years to get a single aeroplane flying... opposed to something omnipotent coming to raptur... oh, i can't be bothered.
