Quote# 680

[On the Genesis creation account]

When god says 6 days he means 6 days, and I don't ignore any true scientific evidence, yes the Bible is the first authority, but true scientific evidence fits it.

In any case, any "evidence" can be twisted to fit one's bias, so its a mute point to debate evidence.

Truer words were never spoken... Ironically, that's what you're doing anyway.

MOOT, dammit! MOOT!!!

Sorry, but as an English major, it drives me up the wall when people make this mistake.

Rahab beat me to it. Mute, indeed.

Crosis, another Douglas Adams fan? :D

Um, the bible says god says six days. And the bible says a whole bunch of obviously fictional things.

Tell your preschool teacher you want another book. One with pictures.

I know of no scientist who would twist facts to fit a bias. Besides, all scientific theories have been peer reviewed until all viewpoints have been included, so you're arguement is moot. (<-- That was the word you were looking for. "Mute" means being unable to speak)

Gods, if only he was mute.

Damn it, everybody beat me to the moot issure.

The Bible might have been one of the first authorities, but that doesn't make it more true. The Calendar of Julius Caesar was before Pope Gregory's XIII Calendar. It's still more wrong than the Gregorian version, as things like equinoxes and solstices had earlier dates each year.
Oh, and we still need evidence that the Bible is written by your God.

Evidence in a court might be twisted around a bit, evidence in science can't really do that. There are too much testing and checking and rechecking and peer-reviewing and more testing, that any "biased" idea will be thrown out at an early state.

The Duelist

"Mute"? I know everyone beat me to it, but in Stephen King's The Dark Tower Saga, "muties" are hideously malformed mutants, whose ancestors were hit with the A-bomb, and inbred for a thousand years. So the bible is true because you're an inbred mutant? Thank you for coming clean. If only the other fundies were so honest...


(Here, I displayed my innate ex-Christian ability left over from when I was still dumb, to bring up a completely unrelated "fact" to discredit someone or insult them.)
