Quote# 5939

When God made them [stars]... The light from them...was HERE already. God 'stretched out the heavens.' Tell me...what would be the point of even putting that phrase in the Bible if not to explain these things to scientists thousands of years later???

Ignoring the speed of light...this is like a new low.

Maybe we can have warp speed from fundie-powered starships...but no one would want one because they're so annoying.

Because it's a phrase that you're greatly misinterpreting?

I belive God described evolution, bigbang, astrophysics etc in great detail...

... Moses just couldn't follow, and scribbled some BS instead.

God's a deceptive little punk, huh?

You cannot be anymore vague than that.

Your precious book says that space is expanding, and you don't say shit when we figure that out in the 20th century. WTF?

So does the Bible also contain LEGO set instructions, on top of the other great knowledge contained within? I doubt it...

because they sought to understand things that they had no way of understanding back then and the bible was something we were meant to grow out of as we gained knowledge of the physical workings of the universe?

"God 'stretched out the heavens.'" like a tent over the Earth with the stars attached.

The Greeks, Egyptians amd Stonehedge builders knew better.

I don't know why this is so hard to understand.

6000 years ago, the LORD made the star lights' rays, but he made them so they were showing star activity from billions of years in the past, but they actually are only 6000 years old, but from billions of years ago.

@Big Chicken Dinner:

Last Thursdayism is impossible to disprove. It does, however, beg the question of why God would go to the trouble of making everything look old.

Because the dudes who wrote the bible knew basically fuckall about anything?

Allegory for Jesus

There is a layer of water on the opposite side of "the heavens" from us. If "heavens" means "space" instead of "sky", WTF is your Space Ghost talking about!

If he wanted to explain it to scientists, he would have put in more footnotes leading to more reference papers.
