Quote# 57526

When I was a kid I was really interested in Dinosaurs but the only info I could get on them was from an evolutionary perspective (which is essentially non-information), so I lost interest, but reading the literature of Christian scientists is like a breath of fresh air, and has restored my interest.

Yeah, sometimes you've just gotta read some fiction.

I loved dinosaurs as a kid. I accept the "evolutionary perspective" but still bleived in God (atheist now. That means I was smarter than you are now when I was 6 years old. Not that I'm smart, it's just that you're an idiot.

I can't put my finger on it, but something is just "off" about this quote. It's too pat, too perfect...


...I'm thinking it's a Poe.


On the other hand, you can never be sure...

Ahh, deviantART, that ever-reliable source of objective, rational information about the Universe... NOT! Do you realize, jmsnooks, that "Xtian scientist" is a contradiction in terms?

Ha, "Christian scientists"....

"When I was a kid I was really interested in Dinosaurs but the only info I could get on them was from an evolutionary perspective (which is essentially non-information),"

Strike one! Facts are not "non-information."

"so I lost interest,"

Strike two! Losing interest because the facts don't align well with one's preconceived notions is a sure sign of a dullard.

"but reading the literature of Christian scientists is like a breath of fresh air, and has restored my interest."

Strike three! You're out! Having interest only when fed information of one's liking regardless of the dubiousness of the sources of that information brands you as an idiot.

Next batter.

BS. You started watching Boomerang and came across the Flintstones.

but reading the literature of Christian scientists is like a breath of fresh air, and has restored my interest.

Why? Because they tell you stories from the Flintstones about Dinosaurs and humans living together?

So you're only interested in facts if they conform with the reality you wish existed?

IOW, "I don't like those stories! I like these stories better!"

Do you mean when you were 9, the books were too hard to comprehend, but now that you're 10, you've found an easy way out? You can read "behemoth", and make it anything you want. GEL beat me to it, rats.

O NOES! Not actual facts!

Was that the scholarly thesis "Land of the Lost" by Dr. Fred Flintstone or perhaps the more in-depth work of Barney Rubble PhD, DVM on the elusive Captain Caveman?

So you basically learned nothing.

Yay for confirmation bias!

I think you meant cartoon scientists.

Yah indeed, a bit of Sci-Fi feels good after a longish bout with Encyclopedia Britannica.

Only your lot think that our version of Dinosaurs are not cool. In your world T-Rex eats coconuts, in ours he is a lean, sleek, murder machine...

(If they were all vegetarians why are so many of them armed to the teeth?)

I wish I had a TARDIS so I could slip us both back in time and watch you try to:

1. Breathe in the super-rich carbon dioxide atmosphere
and
2. Pet a dinosaur and feed one of the carnivorous ones an apple

The least sensible reason to abandon real science?

The scientific literature was too difficult for you, was it?
