Quote# 49466

This seems more like an opportunity to harrass anyone who believes the bible. Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old. So what. And no, God did not use evolution. Why would he, what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution. The two concepts are opposite. Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded. Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created.

Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded.

Only if you're a retard who listens to Ray Comfort or Kent Hovind. EVOLUTION IS NOT FUCKING ABIOGENESIS!

"Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded."

*sighs sadly, then adopts that tone of voice usually reserved for young, often slow children*

No, Terry, it isn't. Once again, evolution explains how there got to be so many different kinds of life here on Earth. It does not explain how all that life got started in the first place. The word used by scientists to explain what you have in mind is abiogenesis. Yes, I know you don't know what such a big word means, and yes, I know it sounds a lot like the fairy tale you know about, but it isn't the same; trust me on this.

What kind of God needs six days to get something done? What kind of God needs to rest? What was he out of breath? He's suppose to be all poweful, yes?

Why would God need to use a process that your small mind obviously can't comprehend? Or what if the natural process does not require a God? You cannot consider such question because you are bound to an ancient text that you have to consider true despite its many contradictions, its many disputes between its many authors, and its selective collection of what was left in and what was taken out.

Oh, and as will be pointed out to you. The Big Bang has nothing to do with evolution. Please learn the definition of evolution before trying to criticize it. You won't find me mocking Shintoism, because I haven't the slightest idea what it means. That means I'm not qualified to discuss it. I'd need to actually read about it, evaluate it, consider the opinions of others, discuss it, and then perhaps I'd be ready to critique it. Anti-evolutionists do not understand such simple processes of critical thought.

"Why would he, what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution."

God sent a son (who was himself) to earth to be executed (but not really), and this act by itself forgives our sins if we believe that it happened (except that you can still go to hell if you do the wrong things).

How is that not MORE ridiculous than evolution?

"Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old."

Fail. That was Bishop Uunger's claim.

Why do obsessed religious freaks not even read their bibles?

Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created.

Not really a winner as far as theories go though is it? It doesn't really have that much explanatory power does it?

"Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old."

No it doesn't.

"And no, God did not use evolution."

It doesn't say that either.

"Why would he, what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution."

God can use whatever method He wants. And you dropped a couple of these --> ??

"The two concepts are opposite."

No they're not.

"Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded."

No it isn't. That's not even really what Big Bang theory says.

"Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created."

Hurrah you got something right! It may or may not be true but your statement is correct at least.

Ok, lets follow this through....

"First there was god"...and before that? Where did the complexity that is god come from? Did this incrfedibly complex being just pop into existence? All you nut jobs do is posit what evolution attempts to explain. You creationists fail to offer an explanation of how simple atoms arranged themselves into the incredibly complex patterns we see in modern life forms. Saying goddidit does not answer the question because then the same question must be asked about god.

Also, you really are a fucking idiot.

"Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old. So what."

So what? So it's fucking wrong, that's what. Not that it actually says that anywhere, but you wouldn't know that.

"And no, God did not use evolution."

How the hell do you know?

"Why would he, what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution."

An efficient one? A non-omniscient one who is using it as an experiment to see what happens? One who isn't a "creator" god but only a "prime mover" of sorts that gets things started?

Just because you're either too lazy or too stupid to come up with some reason doesn't make you right.

"Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded."

That's not evolution. It's not cosmology either, so don't try to pull that shit.

"Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created."

Where'd god come from? And don't say some stupid shit like "he's always existed" or I'll have to smack you. I want a real answer.

Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old.

No, it doesn't. That was a figure calculated by Bishop Ussher. The Bible gives no figure whatsoever concerning the age of the Earth.

Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded. Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created.

Let's not forget that Jehovah supposedly created the Earth ex nihilo--out of nothing.

God did not rest on the 7th day, what kind of all powerful God needs rest?

Evolution is the idea that animals evolve to fit their environment.

Creation is the idea that an infinitely powerful being created everything, defies every law of physics, and then suddenly decides to act like He doesn't anymore. BUT WE'LL IGNORE ALL HIS IMPOSSIBILITIES SINCE HE OBVIOUSLY CREATED EVERYTHING LOLOLOLOLOLOL

The story of Creation in the Bible didn't even originate with the first Israelite. They stole various components from other cultures and even adapted parts of it from their own ancient myths from when they believed in multiple gods.
That's why they're are two Creation accounts in Genesis and one refers to "Elohim" (plural) when talking about God.
You could at least learn your own mythology more accurately if you're going to try and demolish actual facts with it.
You'll still fail miserably, mind you.

Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old.
Actually it doesn't.

What kind of god needs to use as idea as ridiculous as salvation? The creations of a perfect god would never need to be saved from it's wrath.

John

what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution.

What kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as creating each life-form separately, instead of creating a single, self-sustaining system that adjusts itself automatically?

Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded.

No it's not. Besides, how is that an argument against the idea that humans and chimps share a common ancestor? Fundies seem to think evolution covers the entire of science.

Okay...then how did your god come into being? If you're going to argue First Cause, you'd better be able to support your argument.

Don't try to tell us what the Bible says, sonny. Most of us are a whole hell of a lot more familiar with it than you are.

The Bible never explicitly states the age of the earth. The 6000-year estimate was based on flawed genealogies.

Also, evolution =/= the Big Bang.

If there's not a rule in the FSTDT Drinking Game for people who think evolutionary theory and the Big Bang Conjecture are the same thing, there should be. *takes a shot*

Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old. So what.

Yeah, "so what?" that's my question, too.
The babble says a lot of shit...so what. There are crazy people all over the world saying stuff. No matter how many of them there are, it's still crazy stuff.

"So what."


I wholeheartedly agree.

But not, I fear, for the same reasons you have.
