Quote# 32994

Many scientists believe the dinosaurs disappeared quickly, as in a cataclysmic event. In Luke 10:18, Jesus said he watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. This may have been the catastrophe that killed the dinosaurs.

Not once in that entire speech did you come close to a coherent thought. All of us are now dumber for having read it. Go away. Please.

Satan was the asteroid that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs? The K-T Boundary as evidence for the War in Heaven? A rather curious hypothesis, care to back it up with evidence?

And two points:

1. Our genes have evidence to suggest we evolved. Look up pseudogenes.

2. "Believe in me or else" is is not a choice.

Not very fundie

Well, Tom here is closer than most people who make it onto this site, but his idea of the extinction event 65 million years ago is just plain funny, no matter whether you're fundie, atheist, or whatver!

Eccentric and delusional, but not fundie. He's far too easy-going about it.

There's some serious double think going on here.

Happy Holidays to you, too!

I forgot that Jesus was secretly a time-traveler.

I believe in Jesus simply because he wants me to. Jesus has the ability to cause people to believe in him. But he gives everyone a free will. He doesn’t force anyone to believe in him.

Im not entirely sure where you were going with this. You're saying you only believe because he makes you believe, but that he doesnt make you believe?
..... Makes sense to me

At least, he thinks that young earth creationism is wrong. But problem, almost any event, specially in that allegoric language, that the Bible outlines, can be used to interpret almost anything. If it's so clear, why didn't the shepperds who told first that story know not even a tenth part of what we know today?

Jesus was born millions of years after the dinosaurs were wiped out, and "a flash of lightning" is not exactly a "global catastrophy".

"True evolutionists"? "Evolutionism" isn't a religion. There's no such thing as a "false evolutionist". Evolution is science. You can have different opinions about it, but that does not make someone "not a true evolutionist".

Your concept of "pro-choice" is .... retarded enough for me to ignore it hence forth.

"I can only speculate, but probably many atheistic evolutionists consider themselves the only true evolutionists."

Fundies really can't tell the difference between science and religion.

"I can only speculate"
Why yes, you're pretty good at that. I like the bit about the Satan-impact killing the dinosaurs. Charming.

"The atheistic evolutionists may retort that I believe in God merely because I want to believe in heaven. The retort is true. But it’s also true I believe in Jesus simply because he wants me to."
Hahaha, you got me there. You win.

"Jesus has the ability to cause people to believe in him"
Why doesn't he just cause everyone to believe in him then? You are na-fucking-ive. But you don't seem to have the cruel streak so common in fundies, so Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

Many scientists believe the dinosaurs disappeared quickly, as in a cataclysmic event.

Actually, they believe the dinosaurs that were left disappeared quickly. Plenty of dinosaurs went extinct along the way. The stegosaurus and apatosaurus (brontosaurus) were long extinct before the dinosaurs disappeared.

Skeptic: why do you believe God exists?
Fundie: Because He wants me to.
Skeptic: But how can God "want you to" if He doesn't exist?
Fundie: I believe God exists.
Skeptic: But why do you believe God exists?
Fundie: Because He wants me to.
Skeptic: (bangs head against wall and wanders off ...)

attila, I think you're reading too much into it. This guy seems a bit delusional, but not hateful. I think he's trying to be civil with nonbelievers by not forcing his religious holiday down our throats.

"Not once in that entire speech did you come close to a coherent thought. All of us are now dumber for having read it. Go away. Please."

what about this one?

"The young Earth theory is probably wrong"
