Quote# 88313

Extraterrestrial microbes pose no threat to the creation model. I maintain, after consulting with one whose opinions I respect, that a large amount of water, mud and rock escaped into space on the occasion of the Global Flood. Some of it splattered onto Mars. That the mud held microbes is not a stretch.

That's not how floods work.

They really don't teach either general science or high school physics any more, do they?

7/15/2012 4:22:35 AM


Actually, yes, that is a stretch. A stretch of an insane "mind". Even if the flood happened (which it did not), how the fuck would "water, mud, amd rock splatter onto Mars" as a consequence?

7/15/2012 4:26:28 AM

Yes, if you ignore all of biology, geology and astronomy and a big chunk of physics.

I suspect that by "one whose opinions I respect," Mr. Hurlbut means his drug dealer.

You do know that the average distance between the Earth and Mars is 225 million kilometers, right? Let's set aside for the moment the fact that the notion of a global flood as depicted in the bible has been utterly annihilated by the findings of modern science. Any water that would have "splashed" out of Earth's atmosphere during such an event wouldn't have had the velocity to make even a fraction of that journey.

Why am I trying to talk sense into an obstinately insane person?

The creation model makes sense if you ignore all science and history.......and having an IQ of 65 helps too.

7/15/2012 4:46:39 AM


Yes. It all happened exactly like that.

"after consulting with one whose opinions I respect"

Sorry, but as you are a member of Andy Schlafly's goon squard this statement can only be laughed at.

So Noah had a bit of a rough time at sea, in a large chunks of water and rock being flung out of earths orbit sort of way?

"Extraterrestrial microbes pose no threat to the creation model."
Sorry Terry. They refute it utterly

This "one whose opinions you respect" wouldn't be that perennial idiot and Conservapedia centrefold NephilimFree, by any chance? Because this little lot bears all the hallmarks of his Lunar Bukkake Theory. The law of conservation of energy wouldn't even get your water, mud and rock into space, let alone the Moon (as Nephy wants to believe) - certainly not Mars.

7/15/2012 6:50:52 AM


And I thought NephilimFree was laughable when he said that the Flood launched whales to the moon...

7/15/2012 6:51:21 AM


The Biblical flood is a pile of horseshit. Since it never happened, your hypothesis is rubbish. By the way, do you know anything about physics (this is a rhetorical question). Let's just say it couldn't have happened the way you think it did.

7/15/2012 7:14:32 AM

Ah, the Inexhaustible Ass of Explanations erupts once again.

7/15/2012 7:23:17 AM


So now the Lunar Bukkake hypothesis applies to Mars too?

7/15/2012 7:32:02 AM


I can buy that. After all, that's how Space Godzilla was created. Godzilla's G-Cells got into space after it's fight with Mothra, got caught in a black hole, and mutated into Space Godzilla. Perfectly scientific.

And if they find extraterrestrial microbes somewhere other than Mars ?

7/15/2012 8:03:00 AM


Let me count the things you fail forever: microbiology, chemistry, geology, astronomy, physics, history, common fucking sense...

Good grief, this guy is so willfully ignorant and dumb it hurts my head. He should have an award named after him, like a "Splattered onto Mars" award or something, for fundies who manage to utterly fail and make a mockery of multiple disciplines in one post. Could be justified as the poster's brain being what "splattered onto Mars" or something, or perhaps the brains of everyone who reads their drivel.

someone has heard of nephilimfrees theory of the ountains of the deep, sometimes referred to as the lunar bukkake theory.

This explains water on the moon and comets as well.

7/15/2012 8:18:35 AM


To Summarise your argument:

"Here's the creation model:
~ POOF! ~

Now show me how Martian Microbes invalidates that. Can't do it, can you, nyer, nyer, nyer."

Lunar Bukkake Theory has just been turned up to eleven.

Thanks to the commenters here, now I want to start a band called Lunar Bukkake Theory.

Doubting Thomas

How the hell could a flood cause a chunk of earth not only to fly up far enough to escape Earth's gravitational pull, but to fly all the way to Mars? Or, how could a flood cause water, mud, and rock to fly up, say, as high as I can jump?
