Quote# 6989

Psalm 139:13 finds David specifically stating that God knits us together in our mother's womb. This is clearly an statement against any theistic version of evolution. How can humans be knitted together in the womb is we evolved from lower life forms?

Because Jawas in the past didn't know what happens in the whom like we do now.

Symbolism or something?

So, do you also have a verse saying God doesn't knit together lower lifeforms? You need at least both to make this claim.

That and, like Katherine said, symbolism! Familiarize yourself with the concept.

A symbol's just a symbol, or what's a meta for?

Wow... So obstetricians and gynaecologists go to university to learn to purl and cast off?

And what about the lesser animals, are they merely crocheted in the womb? Because you know, I tried to crochet a baby using a coat hanger once. Let me tell you it didn't end well.

Are those that lay hundreds or thousands of eggs loom produced?

OK idiot - fetuses grow in a womb, not a loom! Womb! W-long O-M-silent B. Womb!

So, because babies are born...Evolution is false?

You have to remember though, the bible was made up by people who didn't know about such things. This is why you book is falling apart at the seams.

You are now officialy brainwashed!

God says a lot of stupid things.

The bible was written by people that didn't understand reproduction and biology.

\"If it CAN be used to discredit evolution, it MUST be used to discredit evolution.\"

His name is an insult to the concept that shares it.

The psalms are poetry, hence, they use metaphore and cannot be used literally.

5/18/2007 11:18:30 PM


ok, first sentence is a quote I have heard used in the past against abortion, and as so it makes sense, even if you believe it or not, but saying that it somehow disproves TE....?

Bacteria have silia, that they use to engage in a divine hug.

From that love humans were born. Babies carry on that tradition, hundreds of years after Gawd greated the divine microscopic hug.

The Stupid was just up the walls on this one.

David stated it? what the fuck does david know?

6/4/2008 12:53:47 AM


But can God crochet or tat lace?

The reliability of Psalm 139:13 as a source aside, I really don't see the contradiction.

Dr. Gus

EXACTLY, did you get it now....
No, you idiot, it's the other way around!

10/28/2009 10:43:15 PM


Uh ...we didn't evolve all over again for each person that was born.

Because it's a stupid parable written by people totally ignorant of biological processes. A grape is magical to these people.

This is clearly an statement against any theistic version of evolution

I couldn't agree more.

4/18/2017 7:44:14 AM


That sounds like people who don't understand science and how development in the womb works explaining how they think it happens. We can now monitor development in the womb and there is no Divine knitting going on.

In your case, I think he may have dropped a couple of stitches
