15th April 2008

“A person who looks at the universe through the Hubble telescope is going to have trouble taking the first two chapters of Genesis literally. And when told that being faithful to God requires such belief, unbelief may feel like the only option.”

James L. Evans

    … and the two arguments the creationists use :

    either a) God created the universe 6000 years ago INCLUDING all the photons in the positions they would be in IF they had been released 13.7 Billion years ago. So when we see things millions of light years away, they are actually 6000 yr old photons created by god, already en route…

    Oh, but b) is that when the universe was created (by god), the speed of light was much much faster, which accounts for the difference between observation and the creationist calendar.

    I mean, come on…

    AG – you’re missing the “mystery” factor! God created the universe for our benefit 6000 years ago but made it look much older to test the faith of His people. And who are we to argue? Are not His ways inscrutable? It may feel like base trickery but that’s the point. Only the weak get tricked into it. Obviously He can do anything, including violate the fizics thing that scientifical people rail on about. He’s GOD!

    Repent!

    P.S.
    Fossils were placed by SATAN to sow confusion and tempt the weak.

    Chris, I believe you should publish a new history of the world based on your unique, sarcastic views. It would be highly entertaining. If you’d like, we can make it together (sarcasm is the best kind of humor).

    I wish I could take credit. Everything I wrote I’ve heard from religionuts. Honest. Some of them actually think those are reasoned arguments.

  5. Tzuriel Says:

    I wish you could, too. It’d be nice if all such arguments were made with a sarcastic tone. Even so, you have no idea how entertaining it would be to find “The Bible – A Rewrite!” on the shelves.
