Quote# 74625

Scientists have launched the world's biggest radiotelescope, in the Netherlands. They said that it is capable of even detecting faint signals "from almost as far back as the Big Bang" (in the beginning). [...]

According to one scientist, "The observations that we will be able to make will allow us to learn more about the origin of the universe, back to the moment right after the Big Bang" (in the beginning).

Then again, they could have saved themselves a lot of trouble, time, and money if they simply listened to Genesis chapter 1. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the first four words: "In the beginning God...”

Yeah, and we should stop paying entomologists because Holy Scripture tells us how many legs an insect has.

Unless a detailed data set of radio signals follow that bit in the Bible, shut the fuck up, you stupid shit stain.

<sigh> Could at least try to come up with another line instead of trotting this out every time scientists talk about the big bang.

For one, they didn't launch it in the Netherlands, you dolt (although this is good ol' Ray, so maybe expecting a knowledge of geography is too much for him)

@Dr. Whom:
And we could just get rid of those pesky bat scientists 'cause bats are birds, and whale specialists because whales are fish...

Yeah, OK, Ray-ray.

Now tell us HOW all that happened. Myths need not apply.

I guess that explains a lot. I guess nice pretty colors and lights would be enough for you to say its magic.

Wait. Does NASA know about this?

...*facepalm* that's not why we're looking you shit, GAH, first bananas as "proof" of intelligent design, when domestic bananas are designed BY MAN, and now this, seriously how long are you idiots going to keep this aggressive ignorance up, we'd pssibly be exploring the universe by now if it weren't for people like you

Well, sure, Ray, I guess Genesis would suffice if you're intellectually incurious and have no interest in discovering the universe around us.

Wouldn't you think they'd be happy for outside sources to have a way to prove their story right, if they actually had any feeling that it was?

"In the beginning God" made the banana to fit in our palm and other places in our body.

Ah yes, but HOW did God create the heavens and the earth?

And who created God?

...still didn't exist, thus necessitating the use of astronomical observations?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the first four words: "In the beginning God...”

No, but it obviously takes someone smarter than Ray Comfort to understand the difference between "understanding" and "believing." Just because we can read the words doesn't mean we have to accept that they're true. Especially in the absence of any reason to.

Is there something wrong with wanting to know HOW God did this, though? Besides, "omnipotent" didn't originally mean "can do literally anything, in spite of natural laws"; it meant "stronger than all". "Suprapotent" would probably be a better way of putting it.

Besides, you may want to rethink the idea of a God with no constraints whatsoever. How do you plan to distinguish such a God from a beast of pure whim and chaos?
