Then logically shouldn't that lead you to the conclusion that the Bible is wrong? Oh wait, I sometimes forget that you lot are immune to logic, reason, and reality.

Well then, your bible is wrong. Yet, you don't see it. My plants are alive, and many of them died over the weekend when we were flooded. They pollinate and every year I have new perennials that I did not plant. That is how they spread their lives.

Look around you in the fall. Then look again in the spring.

Then use your brain.

Wow, this is the clearest case of "If reality disagrees with the bible then reality is wrong" that I've seen yet. How do these people tie their shoes in the morning?

Is that because they don't have 'souls'? And to be seriously honest, most of the stuff I chop up and put in salads has more life and purpose than e.g. the posters on sites like rapture ready.

Scientifically they are organisms.They do live and die

Biblically Pi=3

Ephraim the Retarded Rabbit

Because we all know that Bronze-Age high priests were experts in the field of biology.

Pi = 3, and insects have four legs. Once again, the bible is fictional, and you should realize that.

`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

Is that why vegetables like yourself think they'll live forever if they just bend over for an imaginary Sky Daddy?

If the Bible said that soda cans were the spawn of Brazilian poison dart frogs, would....

Who am I kidding, you would believe that.

Bible /= reality

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Yeah, so? Biblically, bats are birds, rabbits chew cud, insects have four legs, pi = 3, the entire world can be viewed from the top of a high mountain, if goats mate near a striped stick they'll have striped offspring, and demons cause illness.

And then you get into the really crazy stuff.

Didn't Jesus get mad at and then kill a fig tree?

Sorry about double post

Ozzie: Yes, yes he did. And then he tried to turn his Hulk moment into a teachable moment for the disciples, and a not-so-veiled threat.

Well, yet another reason to consider the Bible a steaming pile.

There you go... will you join the sensible non-loony crowd now?

As far as I remember, in one version of the story, Jesus cursed the fig tree and it was immediately withered. In another version, it took a week or so to wither. In another version, he just warned the fig tree to have figs 'next time'. And another version has Jesus telling the story of a man who warned his fig tree.

So, somewhere, some place, there was a fig tree. That's all we know for sure.

Just another reason why the Bible is wrong.

Mister Spak

Another reason to use the bible as compost.

6/11/2008 3:32:57 PM


And you believe this book...why, again?

6/11/2008 3:37:26 PM


That's okay, it just means your wrong.
