Sod Darwin, I'm convinced!
some good comments:
if science is fairy tale, what the hell do you call the book about the two naked people eating magical fruit from a talking snake?
My friend just msn'd me the youtube link.
If it off the onion I'm disappointed. I was hoping it might be a genuine creationalist film. :'(
i'm just disappointed by humanity that it's not.
like frankenstein's lab from the 30s universal version with an evangelical preacher cackingly as lightning slashes the sky above crying over a jar of peanut "it's not alive! it's not alive!"
a girl I went to school with who's dad was a vicar/cult member. He taught he that according to the bible the earth is 7000 years old and she believed it. You would think her now studying science at uni and learning a thing or two about carbon dating would have changed her mind, but no.
is pretty dire.
it's the age you (apparently) get from adding up the ages of each generation from now all the way back through the bible to adam & eve.
was only determined by some crackpot bishop fairly recently IIRC.
didn't used to be considered the actual true story of how the actual events actually happen in real actual physical fact at all, thats a relatively recent concept.
before that they were just myths based on the vague and various pagan and folk traditions of several different peoples/tribes which came together to create a tale to explain utterly incomprehensible and inexplicable. in fact for a long time yahweh wasn't even the only god. that too was a concept which evolved over hundreds of years.
or so i understand from this karen armstrong book i'm reading now and what my old RE teacher used to teach us (in a catholic school)
told us about a religious girl who brought in a pamphlet explaining how teaching evolution increases teen pregnancy. It had charts, so it had to be right!
it puts all kind of horrid ideas in young impressionable minds. I get all kinds of barmy ideas like this from biblefolk that invade my house.
is the entire food industry depends on survival of the fittest to be profitable. By choosing the biggest and best produce of each generation and only allowing them to breed, you eventually end up with the oversized stuff we eat today. Lovely.
oh, them crazy christians...
A banana is also shaped like an amply proportioned penis. It fits perfectly into a human vagina. Does any Theist dare to try and explain why? And why masturbation is a sin if god created so many natural dildos (carrot, banana, zucchini, cucumber, aubergine, something for every size preference)?
if a banana is shaped like an amply proportioned penis and fits perfectly into the human mouth, it makes that alright for that guy to have a cock in his mouth too? They fit.
Jesus titty-fucking Christ.
What a crock of shit. I mean seriously, how can somebody believe this?! It's like the logic of a toddler.
"the whole of creation testifies to the genius of God's..."
