When reality contradicts the bible, reality obviously must be false ;)

This is why creationism is never going to be taken seriously.

When science and teh babble differ, it takes an enormous effort in doublethink to keep believing teh babble.

Science and observation says jumping off a 20 story building will kill you. The bible says nothing about that, so therefor you won't die..

C'mon, reality is an illusion, trust god

cold unfeeling science and a re-translated biased book which one is wrong??

1/24/2009 4:14:52 PM


So basically ALL of science is wrong, even when there's massive amounts of evidence for it?

Henry Morris just showed us all that the correct name is not "Creation Science" but "Creation Bullshit"!

The Bible indicates in several places that the earth is flat. In both Deuteronomy and Leviticus it says that rabbits
chew their cud, that bats are birds, and of course insects with four legs.
Science doesn't have to be involved to know that these things aren't true.

It's funny - the Catholic Church said "When science and the Bible differ, someone has obviously misinterpreted the Bible."

If this doesn't deserve a 5, nothing does.

a mind far far away

"Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he hold to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men. If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion."

Not that this isn't blatantly headdesk-ish fundie, but taking from Wikiquote seems rather unfair.

"This is why creationism is never going to be taken seriously."

Exactamundo. Although, creationists usually have difficulties grasping why this is a problem.

Lol, no.

1/24/2009 5:40:26 PM


In fundieland the bible is right and reality is wrong.

1/24/2009 6:00:32 PM


This is why creationism is dangerous.

1/24/2009 6:02:04 PM


What an idiot.

1/24/2009 6:14:35 PM


This is why educated people around the world shake their heads in disbelief at biblical literalists.

Mr. Creazil

Bats are birds.
All the types of animals in the world lived within walking distance of Noah's house.
The Earth is flat.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.

Can you you give us an example? And show how? Don't worry, we're not holding our breath.

With hilarious one-liners like this, Morris must have one hell of a stand-up act.
