Quote# 7487

If you look back evolution far enough and ask what was the first thing that came into existnce before the atom, they are going to give you a flurry of 'i dont know' or basically -dirt. So we are literraly looking at God versus dirt.

No living thing came into existance before the atom. BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS MADE OF ATOMS!!!

And what does Genesis say people are made out of?

That's right, dirt.

So we're literally looking at dirt vs dirt.

(except that evolution doesn't go back to before atoms; only to the first living things, so you're still wrong)

And the proof of God is where again...?

Mrs. Antichrist

I'm pretty sure that atoms pre-date dirt.

a mind far far away

Wow, he confuses astronomy, cosmology, evolution, abiogenesis, and geology all in once sentence. This is gold.

1)You're confusing your biology with your physics and it's various related sciences.

2)Nothing existed before atoms as everything is made of atoms (excetp for sub-atomic particles but I don't think that's what you meant).

3)You're too stupid to own a computer with a net connection. Please hand it in at your nearest Idiot Station.

That the scientific community won't say "we know" is to their credit.

The fundie argument has long been "you weren't there so you can't know" and when science admits to not being sure they attack that too.

The big point is, massive amounts of long studied facts against a book that can't agree with itself

Well, I know dirt exists, so...

You want to know what came before atoms? Simple. An ionised plasma.

"I don't know" =/= dirt
evolution =/= abiogenesis
evolution =/= The Big Bang
abiogenesis =/= The Big Bang

I'm assuming that by talking about talking about "what was the first thing that came into existnce before the atom" he's talking about the origin of matter. I think he's talking about the start of the universe as we know it. So I'm going to be generous and assume he's talking about the Big Bang, but simply doesn't understand anything about it.

But simply put:

cosmology =/= biology

In any case, even abiogenesis doesn't say something as simple as "we came from dirt". The Bible on the other hand . . . well, what was it God made Adam out of again? Wasn't it dust, which is basically, you know dirt.

Anyways, what we're actually looking at is:

ignorance vs. evidence


"I don't understand and you guys say you don't know, so Goddidit!!!" vs. "We don't have enough evidence. We don't know, and it would be wrong to pretend we knew something that it is impossible for us to know."

and as we know, dirt wins every time.
simply because "God", doesn't exist!

Someone hasn't read what God made us out of.
