Quote# 87209

With young people having gray hair with increasing frequency, this does suggest that the slope of man's developmental path is a much sharper incline (downward) than Old Earth believers claim.

["I am going to suggest you present some credible references." ]

Your request for references is unpersuasive, as evidence is abundant in daily life. Would anyone ask Jesus for a reference after telling the parable of the Prodigal Son?

So now Schlafly is comparing himself to Jesus. Why am I not surprised?

Where's the parable in his wharrgarbl? All I can see is an unsubstantiated claim. Is this guy for real? I mean, really really?

Even if young people graying is true, how exactly does this suggest a younger earth?

"Your request for references is unpersuasive, as evidence is abundant in daily life."

Meaning: Andy has none so he's just going to ignore the request.

"Would anyone ask Jesus for a reference after telling the parable of the Prodigal Son?"

My response: Yupp, totally. But as Jesus is dead, I'm not really expecting a response.

"evidence is abundant in daily life"

I think they meant evidence of it being more abundant now than in the past.

If he wanted to claim it was anything more than a made-up story he invented to make his point, yeah.

But then that's exactly what you just did, isn't it Andy? Invented the whole thing.

You know, it's really sad...for all his supposed knowledge, Andy doesn't know what a parable is....

(Hint: Andy, a parable is NOT a true non-fiction story....)

Tell you what Andy. Check the parish records (so much more reliable than, say, the fossil record, and Christian too!) for the average age at death of your ancestors over the last few hundred years.

Let us know what you find, ok?

Well, then; you shouldn't have any trouble providing said evidence, should you? We'll wait...

I'm gonna call it right now; Schlafly's developing a God complex or a Jesus complex.

Andy, the problem here is that in order to make your first claim, you have to accept that evolution is happening. Which you don't believe in. So your entire comment becomes a dafuq.

Is Andy comparing himself to Jesus here?

So, I'm guessing the phrase commonly seen on Conservapedia is [citation not needed].

Your claim of early gray hair is unpersuasive, as you responded to a request for supporting evidence with whargarrbll.

5/4/2012 5:18:24 AM



I sure would.

Parables are metaphors, not to be taken lit... oh wait, fundies don't get the concept of fiction.

Also: Schlafly just must be a POE. A person this stupid would starve in days.

"Your request for references is unpersuasive, as evidence is abundant in daily life."

Translation: I dunno lol.

Belief in aliens is also abundant in daily life. Must mean that aliens are real.

Would anyone ask Jesus for a reference after telling the parable of the Prodigal Son?

No, because it's a freaking parable. That's like analyzing the physics of a cartoon.

JC - "This man, he had two sons..."
Anon - "Wot were their names?"
JC - "That's not important"
Anon - "Ee's makin it up as he goes along!"
JC - "No I'm not!"
Anon - "Citation Needed!"
JC - "Ok, Look, their names were Steve and Alan!"
Anon - "You said you di'n't know! Liar!"


(Yeah, I know, Brian and wrong parable, whatever)

My mother was gray-haired before the age of 35. I'm 43 and I only have a few streaks of gray in my hair.
It seems the down-ward slope is now an upward rise. What? At least I have ONE example, which is more than you seem to have.

Parables don't need references. Factual claims do.

The more literal-minded scientistic atheists probably would. They'd just look smug and say "Anecdotes aren't data, Jesus".
Also, is Andy comparing himself to Jesus?

A day without a Poe from Andy is like a day without sunshine.

Probably not, but that was explicitly, you know, a parable. Whereas you are claiming literal true things.

...you also aren't Jesus. In case you, y'know, hadn't noticed.

A request for proof is "unpersuasive"???

Here's a tip for you, Andy: When you make a claim, part of your job is to persuade the rest of us it's true, not vice versa.

How can anyone that stupid breathe, let alone maintain a fact-free vanity site?

Would anyone ask Jesus for a reference ...

You're damn right, if there was ever a Jesus. Where's your reference for that, a Jesus? We've been asking for 1700 years and so far, zip.
