Rather a nice quote so thought I’d share it.
Made this as a result of yet another debate with one of those Christians on Facebook who so helpfully likes to clean windows orally.
The above post appeared on Facebook tonight, where Nancy was arguing for the historical accuracy of the Bible. Yet it contains the most rank hypocrisy, as can be shown by rewording her own post thus;
It is complete and utter stupidity to think that evolution is all a bunch of gibberish..
Scientists base much of their work and finances on the fact of evolution’s accuracy, they DEPEND on it..
If it’s weren’t so accurate, scientists would have given up this endeavor long ago, but it is accurate and the subject has gained the respect from many scientific fields, who would think most people here to be sheer idiots who haven’t done any investigations on their own, but repeat what their so called so & so creationist friends say…
Nancy will repeatedly dismiss evolution, claiming scientists will one day come to realize the bible was right. Yet can the exact same thing not be said of the creationist position, given that wealth of evidence?
After all, what evidence is there for the bible’s history, aside the bible? Sure, places mentioned existed (at least some did), and even many of the characters mentioned may well have existed. That isn’t evidence for the acts that are attributed to those people or places.
Evolution, on the other hand, has so much evidence it is beyond all reasonable doubt. There is no debate within mainstream science as to whether we evolved, we did, it’s a fact just as the heliocentric model of the solar system is a fact.
But scientists are talking gibberish. Right Nancy, you silly ickle fundie ;)
Origen was a founding father of the Christian church and this is how he described their ideal demographic. Talk about nothing’s really changed!
