Quote# 38434

I am Christian and I go to a Christian college. So I may be biased. But I know for a fact that an artifact has been found on Mt. Sinai that SCIENTISTS HAVE proven to be Noah's Ark. The dates and details match that of the description given in the bible. Look it up. If this guy had any argument against Christianity he would know what he was saying. He obviously doesn't.

Christian? Strike one.
Goes to a Christian college? Strike two.
Believes a hoax as true? Strike three.

Man, it must suck to be you.

Wasn't that refuted 20 years ago or so?

The video's a prize in itself.

They actually won't let anybody up there or near where the Ark supposedly is.

Y'know in all honesty (and this is coming from an ex-christian), some people honestly think that what the pastor says = fact. It's dangerous, but when you've been indoctrinated, you tend to believe in anything that fits in with your book and try to refute everything that doesn't.

Yeah, they keep findin' it and findin' it.

You've been either lied to or have been mislead badly. Isn't it supposed to be Mt Ararat anyway?

And by "know" I mean "heard it somewhere and desperately need to believe it."

BULLSHIT!

Many thanks to Penn and Teller for the use of their catch phrase.

I doubt professors in a Christian college are certified to talk on the subject.

I'm sorry about your future in the working world. Careers are tough when you're useful to no one.

I can't recall if this was a hoax, but wasn't it Mt. Ararat where the ark landed anyway?

Actually, the ark on the mountain was proven to be a hoax. Why don't you read ALL the information, instead of just the parts that say what you want them to.

Even if it wasn't a hoax, a piece of the Ark wouldn't prove that Christianity was true. It would prove that one part of the Bible just might have happened. But it wouldn't prove it definitively anyway, so really, what would be the point?

Unless this person is referring to a more recent case, this whole story's been debunked quite some time ago

Now see this is the problem wit proving the Bible is true. Is that you have to prove every little tiny thing. You have to go out and collect evidence for. This is already against the scientific method because you're not supposed to prove anything until you've looked at all the evidence but never mind. You can't just prove one story and expect that the rest of must be true too. No no no, you have to prove that EVERYTHING is true. This is impossible because the Bible contains allegorical stories that are meant to be fictitious and even contradicts itself at parts.
But on the other hand proving the Bible is not true is much simpler, you just have to disprove on part. Once you disprove a single part of the Bible the whole thing falls apart because if the Bible is the inerrant word of God how could it possibly contain a factual error?
So you're probably wondering if it's impossible to prove the inerrancy of the Bible why do people believe it is so and there is only one answer: faith. They have to suspend belief in reality, in logic, in evidence, and accept unquestioningly that is book (King James 1611 Bible to be percise) is the inerrant word of God. And this is why Biblical literalist Christians are the worse kind of Christian.

Then why hasn't anybody brought the damned thing down so everybody else can look at it?

@ Terry Stroud

"Useful" is highly relative though. There are a lot of people (many comedians, rappers, actors, preachers etc. among others) who I wouldn't pay a penny to lick the sweat off my balls but who some find useful.

Fanatic-Templar

Yeah... 'facts' normally have to be true in reality.

Wrong country. Mt. Sinai is in Israel (or Jordan? in that area) and the place where the artifact is that he's talking about is in Turkey.

Uh huh. Is this like you're knowing that insects have four legs and bats are birds?

Man, you are confused.
Mount Sinai was in a whole different story, you know, the one where this guy gets god to sic 10 plagues on Egypt, then parts the sea and heads for the desert for 40 years.

I think you mean Mount Ararat, in Turkey.

That hoax was disproven before it was publicized in the 1970's, then 1980's and continues to be bullshit, even to this day.

Fuck you're stupid.

I laugh at how these people decry the efforts of scientists, but then use fake scientific-claims to support their arguments.
