All I can do is laugh my [butt] off!

This guy is retarded if you ask me. Hell, my geology professor is a Christian, and he believes the earth's 4.55 billion years old.

I was already laughing, but Legalizer's post cracked me up even more. James' post was funny, too, but a little weird...a lot of his posts are, but they're still funny as hell!

edit: Do not circumvent the ATS profanity sensors. Edited out the act thereof. Thank you.

So what? If they want to try and proove it was just six days let them! If it turns out it was great, if not who cares? I think Genesis is supposed to be taken metaphorically anyway, but then again it never sais a 24 hour day. Doesnt it also sort of fit evolutionairy theories thought? Like He created all the reptiles, then birds, sounds like dinos to birds if you ask me, or something along those lines, not sure if im being accurate here. Christians mean fallowers of Christ, not believe the world was created in just six days anyway. It doesnt really matter when the world was created or how, just that Jesus came, died, rose from the dead, and did tons of miracles.. THATS ALL THAT MATTERS.

Croat, you are the first christian to admit genesis may not be "truthful". EVER! You tell that to a priest get ready to be "blessed" upside the head with the back of the hand. Or a holy boot up one's bum.

Why should religious ideas be given special attention? They are for the most part, b/s. They don't deserve to be in the news. Besides which, what 'atheist' ideas get news coverage? The onyl atheist idea is that there is no god. I've never seen that headline.

This news item targets a Creationist that even most other Creationists do not agree with.

Its newsworthy. These people are whacky, like you say, even other creationists think that they are whacky. That sort of stuff gets in the news. And, if anything, its the creationists fault for making it news worthy. They are the ones making a 'big stink' about the issues, suing in courts to get their religion taugh in science classes and hijacking school boards, slapping absurd stickers on textbooks. There's an interest, a concern, about these things happening, there's no reason not to report on it.

What point is there in putting this in the news, other then to let the average atheist have another go at Creationism?

Whats being an atheist got to do with it? Any critically thinking pious christian can see that these ideas are pretty assinine and ridiculous.

No, it doesn't. It doesn't fit with science at all, whether the days are millenia or hours.

What in the world are you talking about? The RCC endorsed evolution, catholics aren't, for the most part, biblical literalists, and understand that the bible is supposed to be taken metaphorically. Heck, almost everyone understands that when Revelation talks about a 10 headed beast rising up from the abyss, that its not literally going to be a multi headed animal swimming around in the ocean. Only the literalists actualy read it like that.

maybe this will help:

there are some people who are actively anti-Christian

there are some people who are actively anti-religion in general

Me? I don't like anchovies or anchoviests! If you like them, fine! But, don't try to make me eat them or stick them in my face or sneak them in under the cheese on my pizza to try to trick me into eating them.

there are atheists, agnostics, and followers of every imaginable kind of gods, demons, demi-gods, mother earth/father sky, monotheists, polytheists, dualists, deists, shamans, voodoun, santarieans, etc., etc., etc.

sadly, there are plenty of those in every group that subscribe to the old saw of:
"if you ain't with us, you're agin us!" Hatfield and McCoy view of religion/faith/belief system. If I'm not mistaken, this all started a little more than 4,000 years ago. Now, we have the internet instead of rocks and clubs to beat each other with.

So, I said all of that just to say that the whole idea of that anyone who is not Christian is an atheist and all atheist hate Christianity is simply not worthy of a discussion forum such as this. If you like that sort of thing, go here:

Thanks for playing!

The monkey speaks his mind

Three monkey sat on a coconut tree
Discussing things has they are said to be
Said one to the other, now listen you two
There is a certain rumour that cant be true
That man descended from our noble race
The very idea is a big disgrace
No monkey ever deserted his wife
Nor her baby and ruin her life
Yeah..the monkey speaks his mind

And you never known a mother monk
To leave her baby causing it to plunk
Nor pass them on one to another
Till they scarcely knew who was their mother
Yeah...the monkey speaks his mind

And another thing you will never see
A monkey build a fence around a coconut tree
And let all the coconuts go to waste
Forbidding all other monkeys to come and taste
Now if I build a fence around this tree
Starvation will cause you to steal from me
Yeah..the monkey speaks his mind

Here is another thing a monkey wont do
Go out at night and get on a stew
Or use a gun a club or a knife
To take another monkey's life

Yes man descended the worthless bum
But my good brothers from us he did not come

Yeah..the monkey speaks his mind
