Quote# 76576

Obviously many people refuse to read the Bible and thus miss out on the benefit of its foreknowledge. Had scientists carefully studied the walking on water with an open mind, then it may not have taken 1900 years before they recognized the existence of wave-particle duality. Ditto for many other phenomena.

Obviously many people read the Bible, and find it a mishmash of contraditory stories full of murder, scare-mongering and xenophobia.

Fixed.

Funny that it still were the scientists with their experiments and logic and reasoning and peer review that discovered those things and you lot only claimed to know it all along long AFTER the facts.

Here's a challenge: find a solution to the faster-than-light problem we would encounter in space travel. It's in your bible, right? I want to travel across the galaxy in my own lifetime dammit!

"Had scientists carefully studied the walking on water with an open mind, then it may not have taken 1900 years before they recognized the existence of wave-particle duality"

So according to you we're living on 23rd century, right? (I'm sure that you know that Bible was "put together" few hundred years after the time that your Jesus was supposed walk on Earth)

And I've been walking on water too, how amazing is that! And some people even ski on water, during winter AND summer! OMG, it's a miracle!

Why does it have to be scientists carefully studying the Bible to appreciate its foreknowledge? If it really contains information beyond its time, shouldn't anyone studying the Bible have been able to come up with it? But that somehow because specifically scientists weren't looking at it, this caused the rest of the world to suffer from lack of knowledge for millenia?

Science is still waiting to discover a four-legged insect. Not to mention that we are very keen to discover the trick of dying and then coming back to life days later.

Yep, many of us have read that pile of shit, and that alone is a very good reason to take the atheist route instead.

Umm, isn't wave-particle duality the phenomena of some...stuff to act in the same way as both a wave and a partcle?

Does Andy Schlafly think it's about actual waves of water? Or is confusapedia doing it's job of confusing me once again?

10/5/2010 4:47:02 AM



So I take in the Conservapedia translation will say "And lo Jesus walked on the water, thereby proving wave-particle duality, which would not be recognised by the liberally biased scientists until two millenia later".

Well, duh! (Heavy sarcasm here)

So, by using the "quantum mechanics might prove magic/miracles" type stuff, isn't he basically undercutting his whole point?

There's a much simpler explanation why no one recognized wave-particle duality from the bible.

Here's a hint: It's why you need to be on medication and they don't.

Andy, the problem is: I've read the bible and I know for sure it's useless and full of contradictions. The "foreknowledge" it contains is on the same level as in astrology charts.

Did you ever read the bible Andy? With an open mind? If so, what was _your_ last scientific discovery? Erm.... none? How come...?

Well, jeez, tell us BEFORE we find out, next time!

Why would you need to walk on water when you have nuclear subs to go under it with style?


10/5/2010 5:52:29 AM



Does not compute. No matter just how mad I pretend to be, i still can't see much of a connection between miraculous feats like that and quantum theory.

Obviously many people refuse to read Nostradamus and thus miss out on the benefit of his foreknowledge. Had scientists carefully studied the cryptic gibberish with an open mind, then it may not have taken 500 years before they recognized the existence of some event to which the words can, with a stretch of the imagination, be applied. Ditto for many other phenomena.

I don't even like "Fixed" comments, but these are the depths to which your brain-melting stupidity has made me sink, Schlafly.

Doubting Thomas

I don't refuse to read it, I've already read most of it. I wouldn't say that it has foreknowledge or even postknowledge for that matter. It still makes reference to a flat earth & four-legged insects.

And are you really saying there's a scientific basis in the bible for a human walking on water? Or anything else for that matter? Or is it something you're going to write into your conservative bible?

OMFG! Jesus walking on water as an example of particle-wave duality? That... that... I... WTF?!?

What's next for this potatohead? String theory as demonstrated by Sampson's hair?

Obviously, stealing jargon from Star Trek doesn't make you a particle physics expert.

Steph-O-Kami, the Bible talks about that, actually.

That is not how miracles work

"Obviously many people refuse to read the Bible and thus miss out on the benefit of its foreknowledge."

Foreknowledge? Of what, exactly?

"Had scientists carefully studied the walking on water with an open mind, then it may not have taken 1900 years before they recognized the existence of wave-particle duality."

Do you even know what the hell the wave-particle duality is?

"Ditto for many other phenomena."

Yes, like goat breeding. Just place the mating pair in front of striped sticks and, voila!, you have striped goats as offspring. Need to cure leprosy? Just sprinkle some warm pigeon blood on someone and do a little magical incantation--er, "prayer"--and they're all better. Want to know where rain comes from? God just opens the windows in the firmament and lets the water fall through. Your book also covers nautical engineering. Unfortunately, the boat design uses a wood that doesn't appear to have ever existed, calls for dimensions that wouldn't actually be sea worthy even on calm seas and couldn't possibly house the intended cargo.

In other words, you should shut up now, Andy.

OK which of you silly sods introduced Andy to the idea of Quantum Mechanics .... own up. FFS he cannot understand the mathematics of his own electrical engineering degree and you have to mindflick him with QM?

Don't you feel any remorse for exposing him to even more ridicule?

No?

Ok, that's fine by me ...
