I'm so glad there finally is a good site to explain this controversy.
I never believed in Literature in the first place...
Ahaha, I hope everyone realizes that is a joke site spoofing the Discovery Institute, the crackpots that invented Intelligent Design.
*bows head in shame*
Tsk, OAQ, you were taken in?
Yeah. I almost unleashed a wrath of sarcasm. I've heard some wild ID explanations, so it's understandable.
Heh, it's not far off the mark, unfortunately.
It was pretty obvious after about 1/4 way through it. Brilliant posting. It's a nice combination of what Creationists say as opposed to what they actually believe. I mean, really, nobody could be stupid enough to believe that ****; it's all political.
I was too, until I read where they call Ann Coulter a "moral giant"!
I met a man the other day who believed that dinosaurs lived with man 6000 years ago and that Carbon-14 dating is a conspiracy.
Up until then, I had my doubts that these people actually existed...
That night, I went home and wept for humanity.
I met a girl who had been taught that when I was in the fifth grade. She also told me that I was going to hell if I didn't accept jesus as my lord and savior. I've not been suprised by much in that regard since then.
The Fundamental Method:
Read religious tome - do not question!
Only hypotheses in text are admissible and irrefutable.
Test outcomes are predetermined by fiat.
Apply belief system to distort observations.
Repeat at least once per week.
Under irrefutable scientific proof, reinterpret text every 500 years.
Watch it everyone. This is turning into a religion-bashing thread.
Which I'm most enjoying. Carry on.
No, this is called crackpottery. (and religious beliefs are not the only domain in which it's seen)
Did not Franck Zappa write a song about catholic girls ? Maybe she just meant she wanted to see you again in Heaven.
I was involved with a girl that thought that :uhh:
I guess my time on PF is limited now
I work with a Young Earth Creationist. You would not believe what comes out of this guy's mouth. He is in complete denial.
Buy him tic tacs.
A social worker told me that the tenth planet is Nibiru, that it enters and leaves our galaxy every 10,000 years. When I asked him how a planet could move faster than the speed of light, he asked me how we know what the speed of light is. I gave up.
That's actually so scary.
The Urians from the 13th planet, who are much more advanced than the Nibiruians (or us obviously) left us a coded message on cave walls in eastern Brazil. That's how we knew first. Then of course, we could also measure it.
I knew a drunk who told me that he was the fifth Beatle.
People who drink are so freaking stupid!!! :rofl:
I went home and cried for humanity.
