I sometimes wonder about this place.
It's become the playground of right-wing religious fundamentalists that like to whine whenever anyone questions them.
It used to bother me...until I looked at statistics and realised year after year their numbers are decreasing. And not only that, the trend has been
accelerating over the past 10 years ever since the Internet allows people to easily research things.
So in the past if someone claimed a global flood really happened, all you could do was physically visit a library and dig up studies at
universities...which clearly not everyone could or wanted to do. Nowadays you can simply go online and with just 30min of research even a child can
figure out that the whole global flood claim is complete and utter nonsense and physically impossible.
Welcome to the 21st century
A few centuries ago they said the earth is flat...and they were proven wrong.
Later they claimed the earth is still the centre of the universe...and once again, they were proven wrong.
They also believed in the literal interpretation of genesis...and guess what, they were of course proven wrong.
What do they do every time they're proven wrong (and so far none of their claims have been proven right)? They simply move the goal post.
Global floods, plagues, storms, comets, fire, the sun...all were attributed to god at one point. And EVERY SINGLE TIME they were proven wrong. So
it's only normal that every time they move the goal post it becomes sillier and sillier. Luckily we live in the information age, and it's only a
matter of time until it becomes really hard for them to dumb down the population.
