    Don’t look at me. Im Catholic, and I dont believe half the stuff in the old testament.

    Now Jews on the other hand…

    just to play devil’s advocate (no pun intended), if you track the human population rate backwards, then it tapers off about 4500 years ago, when this flood supposedly happened. and also, the ark reportedly came to rest in the mountains of turkey, which coincides with the fact that human history goes right back to mesopotamia & the fertile crescent. I’m just saying.

    OmfgWtfZergd

    Human history starts at about 8,000 years ago. Written history and civilization starts 4,000 years ago.

    However, according to the National Enquirer, the Ark as indeed been found. It was found in a large crater on Mars. I knew only aliens could do this.

    OmfgWtfZergd: “Human history starts at about 8,000 years ago.”

    Except for the villages from about 12,000 years ago found in Turkey and the ‘Aphrodite’ fertility sculptures from about 28,000 years ago, of course… 8)

    Cuniform writing has been found dating from about 5,000 years ago.

    Are you refering to the foundation of Greece about 8,000 years ago as the beginning of human history?

    natedog

    eric, you sound like you know what you’re talking about, but you really don’t. The Greeks emerged about 3500 years ago. the Romans, Hebrews, Chinese, and Egyptians all came before them. All ancient civilizations show up in history with vast knowledge and practical applications of math, law, engineering, language, etc.

    OmfgWtfZergd

    The first civilization was Mesopotamia, which started at about 8,000 years ago, maybe earlier. The Greek civilization came to existence at about 3,000.

    I hate to be picky, but when we make fun of christian beliefs, make fun of them in their entirety. The artist has it wrong, it was seven of every clean animal and two of every unclean. (Genesis 7:2-3 for those that require reference)
    So, not only do we have multitudes of meek animals flocking to a manmade structure, but even the artists touting this theory cannot even portray it correctly!!

    eric

    Natedog: Semantics. 1500 BC (about 3500 years ago) is when the Greek city-states were large and powerful. I could be wrong, but I believe the Romans followed the Greeks, adopting their Gods and Goddesses. Of course, they devoured other cultures as well. OmfgWtfZergd: Greece was inhabited 8,000 years ago – there are villages from that time period. Turkey had villages 12,000 years ago. So I suppose it depends on what you mean by ‘civilization’. Part of the problem is that there are so few intact sites – people tend to build on the ruins of older groups because those were… Read more »

    how much longer can this cult continue?

    LordPartyTime

    eric, i bow to your wisdom, in re-reading i see your reference.

    @kogoodidleft: well, since it’s been around a lot longer than you, i’m sure it’ll stick around longer than you will, too. If you don’t believe it, and don’t want to believe it, don’t trouble yourself with it.

    natedog

    you know, over a 1/3rd of the world claims to be christian. or at least the CIA thinks so.

    coolghoul

    Actually, this isn’t what most Christians believe in. But most of the people that post here actually have no clue as to what Christianity is about. Neither do most Christians for that matter…

    LordPartyTime

    And, coolghoul, you are the only person who is a christian that knows exactly what christianity is? My my, don’t we think a lot of ourselves. This is the problem with organized religion, everyone thinks their version of god should be the only version. As long as two different minds exist, there will be two different versions of god, or the origin of man be it evolution or whatever else there is. Coolghoul, I’m not going to tell you that i think you’re a bad christian, or that i think i know more than you, because i dont know you.… Read more »

    coolghoul

    Yeah, I know I come across as an arrogant bastard, it’s one of my shortcomings. But I did say most, not all. But, my first point to you would be that Christianity has absolutely nothing to do with organized religion.

    LordPartyTime

    Any condemnation of ‘christianity’ is an attack on a founded belief. Christianity itself is an organized religion. Personal beliefs and personal faith is entirely separate.

    LordPartyTime

    Notice i said attack, criticism and mockery is all well and good. If you cant laugh at yourself, what reason is there to laugh?

    knogoodidleft

    LodPartytime – It’s because I’m proud to be an American.

    And “they” say the quote “In God We Trust” is not religious, nor political, but patriotic. Google it.

    You have faith in somethings, I have faith in other things. To believe in an afterlife, seems so far fetched to me, seriously I don’t even have that much time in my basic day to be so bored to worry about after I die.

    LordPartyTime

    You’re proud to be an American. Good. I’m glad. The quote is indeed religious. However, in this country you don’t have to believe the same as everyone else. You are just as entitled to think colored people are inferior. You are just not allowed to act on that feeling. You are entitled to believe whatever you want. Do you feel threatened that some people believe in a god or afterlife? I am proud to be an american as well, and it forces me to beg the question: how much longer can your intolerance last?

    knogoodidleft

    Nope, don’t feel threatened, But I don’t think Religion should be in our lives (Government) for those that choose not to believe, Same idea – you got in trouble for saying a silent prayer, by somebody that didn’t believe, could pull a vice versa different person (ME) could be scolded/punished because he didn’t believe and refused to bow head and say prayer before eating. It is standard to “Swear to God” before testimony , if atheist you have the option to “Affirm” “do you swear to god to tell the truth” “ummm no?” …funny story, but another time – judge… Read more »

    I get a sense of relief that the life I live is worth something beyond what i make of it, because i screw it up, and if life and my entire existence was based on only what i make of it, i’m sorely disappointed. But that’s about all i get from religion. I agree we need to limit the influence religion has. We also need to limit the degree with which the government can regulate religion. It’s not a perfect world, and it’ll probably never be, either. But hey, it’s better than being forced into religion by the government, isn’t… Read more »

    “You are just as entitled to think colored people are inferior. You are just not allowed to act on that feeling.”
    That’s not true at all, you can act on that feeling in many ways. There are certain ways that discrimination has been outlawed (eg employment,segregation), but there’s plenty of racist douchebaggery still going on and it’s perfectly legal.
    In my mind, its more legitimate to be “intolerant” of religion because you don’t choose where you were born or the color of your skin, but you do choose your religion.

    LordPartyTime

    “racist douchebaggery” I take it that by this statement you are not in favor of racism? That’s good. However, you show yourself to be just as ignorant and bigoted as those who cannot see a person for who they are and are instead focused on their color, their language, or their religious beliefs.

    Legitimizing intolerance is the first step to a world that would have looked pretty dang good to any of those men in the pointy white robes, or even to nazi germany. Heil reboot?

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    I believe that it is ok to judge people by their choices. Race is not a choice, religion is. Therefore, it is wrong to judge someone by their race, but ok to judge someone by their religion.
    If a person chooses to believe the world is flat and denies evidence to the contrary, that person is stupid. I’m under no moral or legal obligation to respect that person’s choices. Especially when that person starts voting for school board members or research budgets.
    What part of that is ignorant or bigoted? It’s quite logical and consistent.

    knogoodidleft

    I got plenty of friends that are religious, most Christian, and bobby, he doesn’t talk about his religion but loves his curry. hell I even dated a good ole’ christian girl, But the “christians” i know…ehhh are not traditional, thus in my book, there not religious.

    I always got a kick out of the christians getting mad about Halloween falling on a sunday, saying it was un-holy or some bs, the irony

    LordPartyTime

    Reboot: it is my belief that a person has every right to choose as they believe, and be free of persecution or bigotry for that choice. In fact, thats what the founding fathers insinuated with every document penned. If you are not American, or do not also adhere to these ideals, then you are not worth conversing with on any scale. You give an example for your justification of your small minded bigotry as the belief of a flat world. Yet, that can be proven. Those whom you choose to discriminate against cannot be so easily disproven. Your entire basis… Read more »

    *amendment to opening statment* choose as they believe in regard to religion.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    “it is my belief that a person has every right to choose as they believe, and be free of persecution or bigotry for that choice.” I agree with that, but we might have different views of what constitutes “persecution” and “bigotry”. Should flat-earthers be lynched? No. Should flat-earthers be mocked and shamed for their deliberate ignorance? You bet, that’s free speech. “Those whom you choose to discriminate against cannot be so easily disproven.” Not really. It is a complicated topic, but the facts are all there. You have to systemically deny 150 years of successful science in order to discredit… Read more »

    LordPartyTime

    “Should flat-earthers be mocked and shamed for their deliberate ignorance? You bet, that’s free speech.” yes, that is free speech, but so is yelling fire in a crowded theatre. There are restrictions to your free speech just as there are to mine. “You have to systemically deny 150 years of successful science in order to discredit the theory of evolution.” by the definition of the word theory, to which evolution ascribes, it has not been proven. While I am not saying you are wrong for believing it, I personally refuse to. I picked a different theory. “It’s beliefs and choices… Read more »

    LordPartyTime

    And I do see my remarks “Therein lies your bigotry and ignorance, as well.” as being inflammatory and having the seasoning of a personal attack. I put that to words only because of the remarks i had seen “i’m under no moral or legal obligation to respect that person’s choices.” “In my mind, its more legitimate to be “intolerant” of religion because you don’t choose where you were born or the color of your skin, but you do choose your religion.” Here, you would seem to be saying that it is perfectly legitimate to discriminate against homosexuals as well, for… Read more »

    “by the definition of the word theory, to which evolution ascribes, it has not been proven.” “Since evolution is only a theory, as is every other explanation of the origin of the earth, it should not be taught. Nor should creationism.” Nothing is every Proven in science, so by that standard no science should be taught in schools, which is ludicrous. Evolution is a theory that has been formulated, tested and supported by the scientific method. Creationism has not. Therefore one should be taught in a science class and other should not. That’s not complicated, is it? “However, if i… Read more »

    Oh wait, the Russians actually did that.

    The situation must be different there than i have experienced here, and in some few other places. But to each his own, i am glad of opinions such as yours, to provide myself with definition for mine own opinions.

    Sounds like a plan, I’ll prolly be up there sometime in ’08, got a friend that loves warp tour, but wont go anywhere else but Seattle.

    So why do people spend time arguing this stuff? Serious question.

    LordPartyTime

    I do it because i’m bored at work and have restricted internet access. And it gives perspective on why other people behave the way they do. As well, it firms my own beliefs by bringing to light just why I believe something.

    Max

    hm, ok. As long as no one thinks they’re gonna convince the other side. Pretty futile, that.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    “So why do people spend time arguing this stuff?”
    the money, the fame, the women. mostly for the women

    LordPartyTime

    Mostly, i would agree with you max. However, reboot just convinced me to change my answer to women. Much better reason, that.

    mmm, women.
