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.

No, I could imagine a person who thinks that God, being all-seeing, but not all-knowing, designed natural selection to create his creatures for him. Though to me, natural selection seems as natural as gravity.

"I believe in Jesus simply because he wants me to."

Would you believe in the Flying Spahgetti Monster if he wanted you too?

There was a big grin on my face as I read the first paragraph. I actually began to be hopeful as I read "The young earth theory is probably wrong" Then I remembered what site we were on, but still, this one isn't as bad as a lot of the others.

"...many atheistic evolutionists consider themselves the only true evolutionists."

Possibly. But then, there's also probably a good deal of people who consider themselves the queen of mars. It doesn't mean they are. However, in my personal experience, most of the Only True Scotsman-esque problems fall on religion, not scientific theory.

Again with the "free will". They talk as if its a given, as if its an unquestioned part of Christian doctrine, when in fact there has been heated debate withing Xianity for centuries over this issue.

Decent guy. A bit confused.

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

I don't know anyone who considers themselves an "evolutionist." Just like no one considers themselves a gravitarian.

Yes Jesus is pro-choice. He doesn't want to force anyone to believe in him. He is all about freedom.

Of course if you make the wrong choice he will set you on fire for eternity.

Polite, but believes you're going to Hell. Conundrum...

The young Earth theory is probably wrong.
That's one thing we agree on.

Concerning evolution, it is noteworthy that not all evolutionists are atheists. I can only speculate, but probably many atheistic evolutionists consider themselves the only true evolutionists.
You're partially right. Most people who believe in evolution also believe in a supreme being. And not all atheists believe in evolution, there are some fringe lunatic who think aliens brought life to Earth.

Does Tom remind anyone else of that "prophet" in Life Of Brian who mumbles about how friends will lose their friends' hammers?

I can't help but notice that Jesus happened to watch Satan fall to Earth BEFORE (according to your bible) the first man and woman. I guess that makes Jesus a time traveler too.

Oh come on, he wasn't THAT bad! He was rather tolerant most of the time, overall logical, very polite, & only digressed into 1 or 2 Fundie moments.

Not the best record, but still, not very Fundie.

Right, a dinosaur got Satan in his head. And the rest of them?

OMG, FSTDT material in comments:

I have a leg bone and a cow has a leg bone. Oh my goshhhhhh, I evolved from a cow. Actually, I have a coccyx, not a tail bone (slang).

Geez.

I thought all the dino-SAURS died in Duh Flood?

Here's the problem.

Since, according to the bible, Jay-sus, lived about 2,000 years ago, and virtually anyone with an IQ. larger than their shoe size would realized that dinosaurs (not counting birds) died out millions of years ago...

I'd have to say that while this guys almost in the land of reason... but got lost someone along the way.

This guy needs to read books other than the bible.

So there was the cataclysmic event that killed off the dinos, and it happened during the time jeebus was here - he even saw the flash - yet nobody put it in the book? No mention of dinos anywhere? The brave folks back then must not have been too concerned about them

Because we all know that one human sized object is enough to cause a catastrophe if it impacts the earth.

No no no no. You know how there are those New Testament passages where Jesus basically says he's always existed? You know, "And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began" from John 17:5, and stuff?

I think Tom H. is claiming that this pre-existing "Pre-Jesus Jesus" watched Satan fall from the sky 65 MYa.
