Quote# 3767

I believe that In the early 'days' of creation he created dinosaurs and they had become extinct before he created man. I believe he was letting the earth ripen so to speak to be ready for inhabitation by man. Now because of the dinosaurs of a million years ago we now have fossil fuels at our disposal.

But...God created everything to perfection. So...how could they go extinct?

So...God made an entire species just to wipe it out so you can have fuel for your Hummer?

He let the Earth "ripen"? Since when is Earth a goddamned melon?

Oh lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz
my friends all drive porsches I must make amends

and if you could create an animal, let it roam around for a hundred million years then kill it off so I can get a full tank that'd be great too.

Wait, a million? Not 6,000?

It was a heck of a lot more than a million years ago that dinosaurs were around, and they were no more "created" in the fundie sense than you, or I, or my dog.

The earth, in a sense, may have "ripened" to be ready for "inhabitation by man", but this had nothing to do with non-existent deities. It was man who began inventing gods as soon as he had evolved the intelligence to do so, but before he had a clue about possible alternatives. For some reason I cannot really fathom. many of us are still stuck with this antiquated and quite ridicilous idea of "creation."

Why go through all that to begin with? Why make us need things that require non-renewable resources? Why not have things powered by dirt? Or leaves? Or, hell, gods can do anything, so why should stuff need power to begin with?

Don't tell me, let me guess. Beauty pagent contestant, right?

Sheesh fossil fuels mostly come from dead plants.

Using that logic, what's to stop the suggestion that humans aren't special snowflakes at all and merely being used to pave the way for the next species?

The earth is not a fruit.

But you are.
