Isn't it strange that the Bible never mentions anything about evolution? Have you ever thought of that, or wondered why? Wouldn't you think that if there was an ounce of truth to evolution, that there would be something written in the Bible that would, even if accidentally, agree with evolution? Could it be that evolution is just a theory to eliminate God and/or gods?

Electricity. Is it wrong for the same reasons? Or is it just the Bible that's having problems?

Let's see, what else isn't mentioned in the bible: Gravity, quantum mechanics, interior decorating, Corn Flakes, Pet Rocks, Madonna, diarrhea, flying squirrels, rubber tub stoppers, Nick Nolte, typewriters, IPods, cheeseburgers, clowns, people with clown fetishes, hairdryers, The Hamster Dance, earwax, cable television, rappers with ridiculous names, toenail clippers, mexicans, mexican clowns, people with mexican clown fetishes(I'm sure they exist somewhere), telemarketers, turtle soup, infomercials, poodles, the clap...need I go on?

Isn't it strange that the Bible never mentions anything about evolution? Have you ever thought of that, or wondered why?

Not really,
the theory of evolution was something that was even too advanced for the high cultures of this time (rome, egypt, greece) to discover.
Therefore I wouldn´t expect such a discovery from a tribal mid eastern society. Especially not if you look at the errors it made regarding the classification of animals (look at genesis for this)

Also, the theories of gravity, quantum physics, and chaos are also not mentioned. How about basic astronomy, biology, paleontology, archeology, geology, mathematics and geography? Not to mention shipbuilding, animal husbandry, steel manufacturing, farming, and veterinary medicine.

Could it be that Bronze Age mythology could not even begin to cover such subjects?

Isn't it strange that the bible never mentions atoms, photons, higgs particles, electrons, quasars, galaxies, or any other discovery over the last 2000 years made by humans, which the almighty god did not seem to know anything about even though he supposedly created all of them?
Could it be that god was made up by primitive goat-herders trying to explain the universe with barbaric tales of a giant living in the sky who punishes people for being human?

Not strange at all, what would some ancient middle eastern goat and sheep herders know about evoltuion? That theory was just stated 150 years ago and science advanced quite a bit to get there.

Last I checked, 1855 CE was after 1500 BCE (when the first parts of the Old Testament were probably penned) or even 150 CE (when many sections of the New Testament were penned). And considering that they couldn't even get the prophecies right in the book of Daniel, asking them to prognosticate 1700 years or more in the future is kind of a stretch.

@Amos: "Electricity."

I don't know about you, but I run all my electrical devices prayer, recited scripture and good ol' clean-living. It work's like a charm[size=8][*][/size].

Let's not remember the valuable scientific information that is in the Bible:

Pi=3, insects have 4 legs, whales can swallow an adult human, the Earth has 4 corners, the Earth doesn't move, there is a glass firmament above it, the patterns of an animals fur can be changed by displaying different patterns to the animal...... the list goes on and on. Remember if Satan shows up for armageddon with "chariots of iron" Jeezus is screwed.

Um...no. The bible is not true, and if evolution is true, that would prove that the bible is not true.

"Could it be that evolution is just a theory to eliminate God and/or gods?"

Could it be that the bible is just a bunch of stories written thousands of years ago by a simple, superstitious group of people?

More shit not in the babble:

Nascar, airplanes, heroin, glass, Home Depot, spoons, aquariums, plastic, cable tv, postal service, Tom Hanks, interstate highways, redwoods, Las Vegas, pizza, and Hot Wheels.

Wouldn't you think that if there was an ounce of truth to evolution, that there would be something written in the Bible that would, even if accidentally, agree with evolution?

Why would anyone expect a Bronze Age primitive, for whom a wheelbarrow is emergent technology, to have any knowledge of transitional fossils, molecular biology, natural selection, et al? Let's not forget that these guys were astonished by the rising of the sun every morning.

I'm always amazed that people who will show up at the doctor's office at the first sign of a sniffle, with total faith that the M.D. can cure them, will immediately vilify a branch of science they view as a threat to their beliefs. You can't have it both ways, kids. Either science is effectively on the right path of discovery or it's not.

Hmmm. I'm not mentioned in the bible; maybe I don't exist. Lemme check... Yup, I'm here; bible's bullshit.

The bible never mentions anything about technology or computers or televisions or telephones or electric/gas ranges or indoor plumbing or central cooling & heating or cars or trains or airplanes or grocery stores or hospitals or sidewalks or park & rides or freeways or Interstates or...well, any number of things that you use and participate in throughout your life.

If you discount evolution because it was in the bible, you better find yourself a cave near a running stream of clean water and live your life there.

Isn't it strange that the bible doesn't mention the computer you used to type this? Whouldn't you think that if computers were real they would be mentioned at least once in the bible?

The Bible never mentions the big chunk of land we refer to as North and South America or the North/South Pole, Australia etc., but it all exsists.

There are lots of things not mentioned in the bible. SUVs are one.

Seeing as that it hadn't been discovered at the time, no it isn't very strange.

God and/or gods...

So you admit the possibility there may be more than one? Bloody heathen!

"Isn't it strange that the Bible never mentions anything about evolution? Have you ever thought of that, or wondered why?"

More importantly, it doesn't mention anything about quantum gravity either. And it's stuff like that that would come in really useful. So any ideas? No?

Back to observing, theorising and testing then :(

as far as I can find, Christians and Christianity isn't mentioned once.

What would Bronze-Age Middle-East shepherds know about evolution?
"Could it be that evolution is just a theory to eliminate God and/or gods?" I suppose it could be in your strange reality, but it isn't.

i'll tell you what's even stranger. The bible doesn't contain any specific dates, in spite of various calendar systems being in use at the time.
