Quote# 67505

You claim there's no God using science but the ironic thing is God CREATED science.

What is your response to this?

Read the Bible and you will see true science in it. The only reason why certain verses APPEAR to contradict science is because they are simply metaphors or they are taken out of context.

Did you know there is a Bible verse that correctly predicted the discovery of the expansion of the universe (the Big Bang)?

There is a verse that says the heavens expand like a curtain, if I remember correctly.

Why use science and say there's no God if God CREATED science?

So, the bible was written before the Big Bang?

And how, exactly, did something that does not exist, create science?

True science like cud-chewing rabbits, avian bats, four-legged insects, goats who change pattern depending on what stick they drink from, and all that stuff?

How is it a metaphor or taken out of context when it gives the value of pi to be 3?

Which god?

[Read the Bible and you will see true science in it.]

Like the Earth being flat?

Insects don't have four legs. And I don't think that was metaphorical.

[Did you know there is a Bible verse that correctly predicted the discovery of the expansion of the universe (the Big Bang)?

Chapter and verse please.

"You claim there's no God using science but the ironic thing is God CREATED science.

What is your response to this?"


My response? Prove it.

"Read the Bible and you will see true science in it."

Care to point out some? It appears to get biology, geology, history, geography, mathematics, engineering, astronomy, cosmology and physics completely fucking wrong just about every time.

"The only reason why certain verses APPEAR to contradict science is because they are simply metaphors or they are taken out of context."

So, stating that insects have four legs, bats are birds, rabbits chew cud, all of humanity comes from two people, a firmament exists, an unevidence flood occurred or Pi equals 3 are all, amazingly, metaphors or taken out of context. Is that it?

Mind telling me what context makes Pi equal 3? How about explaining the metaphor behind a striped sheep being produced because its parents mated in front of striped sticks.

"Did you know there is a Bible verse that correctly predicted the discovery of the expansion of the universe (the Big Bang)?"

Saying that the heavens "stretch out" like a "tent" is not quite how I would describe the Big Bang.

"There is a verse that says the heavens expand like a curtain, if I remember correctly."

I'm pretty sure it's a tent. Then again, it's your fucking book and I didn't bother to look it up so this is going to be really embarrassing for one of us.

"Why use science and say there's no God if God CREATED science?"

You've yet to establish your god even exists, let alone that he's created anything at all.

If God invented science, why are you sub-marginals so dead set against it?

Help guys. My copy of KJV is missing the periodic table. Can I borrow someone's?

Ahh, I love that "if there are any biblical passages which appear to contradict known facts, they are just metaphors or taken out of context" defense.

But they sure as shit believe that the passages condemning homosexuality aren't any metaphor. But the "love thy neighbor," "love thy enemy," and "sell all you have and give to the poor" stuff is all metaphorical.

Here's a deal for you just to see how faithful you are:

Build an airplane and, using just one little portion of the "science" of the bible when you build it, strap it on and go for a flight.

Ready? Pi=3

Pretty vague-ass to me. Why couldn't it have been written to clear that up? Or with a value of pi that isn't a cartoonish joke?

"What is your response to this?"

That you just made an assertion and didn't provide real evidence to back it up.

Science doesn't use metaphors, and a lot of those verses are very difficult to take out of context.

Science isn't just a collection of facts; it's a process by which we learn more about the universe.

The universe is expanding like a balloon, not a curtain, so you fail.

You claim there's no Magic using science but the ironic thing is Magic CREATED science.

What is your response to this?

Read Harry Potter and you will see true science in it. The only reason why certain passages APPEAR to contradict science is because they are simply metaphors or they are taken out of context.

Did you know there is a passage in Harry Potter that correctly predicted the discovery of flying cars?

There is a verse that says the car flies like a bird, if I remember correctly.

Why use science and say there's no Magic if Magic CREATED science?

It also states light appears without source, that the earth is stationary and that insects have 4 legs...

Oh, the joys of biblical interpretation. It's literal when it's convenient for you to be literal and metaphoric otherwise.

The circular reasoning is making me dizzy! If you read the bible, it's in it, the bible is true therefore it's true because the bible says it's true, so it's true because that's what it says in the bible , if you read the bible.....yada, yada, yada....etc., etc., etc. Where's the Dramamine?

Where's that circular reasoning diagram when you need it?

You fail science forever.

If God created science, why did it take more than 5000 years and the people he created to develop it?. Following your logic, nobody is responsible and the theology sinks.

If you remember correctly???
You wingnuts are always screaming at people to read the bible, but you can't even be bothered to crack it open yourself, just to check a reference before posting your idiotic drivel on Y! Answers.
I doubt you can read at all
I believe you are referring to Isaiah 40:22
"It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in"

The connection to the big bang stretches out like a curtain as well...very thin

Did--did this person just use Biblical literalism in an attempt to prove the Big Bang?

Just when you think you've seen everything...

@Sweet Fancy Moses: People knew pi wasn't exactly 3 for several thousand years before the Bible was written. They generally used 3 anyway, simply because for large projects, like columns in buildings, it's a reasonable approximation that's easy to calculate with.

There is some serious scientific inaccuracy in the Bible, but that's kind of a bad example. I might have used 3, too, if I'd lived back then. After all, there weren't any calculators.

I think that you are so wrong that there is no need of me to tell you have much exactly wrong you are. You just ARE wrong!

"You claim there's no God using science but the ironic thing is God CREATED science."

Provide evidence for the existence of your god and that he/she/it/they created science. I wont be holding my breath.

"Read the Bible and you will see true science in it."

There is no science in the bible, absolutely none. Another liar for jebus.

"The only reason why certain verses APPEAR to contradict science is because they are simply metaphors or they are taken out of context."

No. The reason they contradict science is because they are WRONG and because they were written by ignorant bronze age goat herders.

"Did you know there is a Bible verse that correctly predicted the discovery of the expansion of the universe (the Big Bang)? "

No, there isn't.

"Why use science and say there's no God if God CREATED science?"

Provide evidence for the existence of your god and that he/she/it/they created science. I wont be holding my breath.
