But, even if your definition was “complete”, your attempt an an insult really actually holds true to the belief that we are actually created by God.
My aunt, though neither christian or creationist, is quite gullible to any “revelations” about ancient cultures, including this one. She only relented when I brought up the anatomical mistakes on the dinosaur engravings (I used to be something of a dinosaur enthusiast). On top of that, and which wasn’t covered in this video, the species depicted didn’t even live in Peru.
I am starting to realize that following your blog may be a mistake. You seem to post things that are someone else’s thoughts on things that just don’t hold water.
This guy rambled on for 45 minutes and never once gave any actual evidence that disproves creation, nor did he give proof of evolution. He merely gave a bunch of examples of fraudulent claims made over the years, and a few examples of bad ancient artwork. I would have questioned every single one of those findings, as well. They all look fake and contrived. What he did prove(and seems to hold true) is that evolutionists tend to drive their points home using insults, rather than facts. I am truly sorry that you align yourself with such people. I started following this blog because I thought you were a dog and outdoor enthusiast, but such doesn’t seem to be the case.
I spend a lot of time out away from man-made things, and I will never understand how someone can look at all that is out there and think that it is all just by chance, or happenstance. Nature speaks to creation. The “evidence” is in the details. I just cannot fathom that everything from that smallest creature to the largest living tree, all are the result of an explosion, followed by millions of years of chance.
I will respect your thoughts from here on out, and leave quietly. If you ever choose to take a real look at creation, please contact me. I am not an “expert”, but would love to discuss anything that could be a learning situation.
All creationists are considered either liars or horribly misinformed. If you wish to leave creationist comments on this blog, you will be ridiculed. I have no time to indulge your dishonesty or ignorance.
We are very anti-creationist, because it’s not even science. It’s Grade A Bullshit. Every thing AronRa says in that video can be verified.
I wonder what he thinks about female, hetero/married, atheist, gun-owning, big-game-hunting, liberal feminists like me? Probably can’t think about it too hard, would end up with esplodey brains on keyboard…
God must have been quite a sadist then when he designed the spotted hyena. The females have to give birth through a psuedopenis, which tears when giving birth. This causes the death of 1 out of 5 female spotted hyenas birthing for the first time.
You forget that, according to the bible, god is a he and he made women as an afterthought from just one of Adam’s ribs. Hyena ladywillies must have been an honest mistake due to his unexpected weekend workload. “Oh my me! All the animals are bumming each other – HEY, STOP THAT… NO… BAD BEASTIES!” And that’s how females and barbecue spare ribs were created.
BCP: You’re not keepin’ up! Not only is God a he, but “he” is also of European extraction (so does that mean that Jesus wasn’t really Jewish), and of mature mien (aka a graybeard–kinda like Sean Connery, or maybe Jeff Bridges?)
Also, as a senior, male human being, I can tell you that if we’re gonna hold an almighty creator responsible for the glitches in creation, It could have done a hell of lot better job on the human back, knees and prostate while It was at it.
From the illustrations, I grew up thinking Jesus was Kris Kristoffersen. Who’d a thunk Sean Connery was his dad – revelations indeed!
Count yourself lucky. He made us women bleed for a week every month and when we get too old to do that, we have a few years of spontaneously producing buckets of sweat, growing beards and having our bones turn into cinder toffee. I can’t work out if he’s a sadist or just plain incompetent.
And even then he managed to leave a timebomb up your rectums. Something tells me that God’s really not got the hang of this whole creation lark if we’re the best example of his handiwork. Rather than humans being the pinnacle of all creation, I think we’re an example of why he got fired by his superiors before he could do any more damage.
Ancient frat boy aliens at that. The whole planet is the cosmic equivalent of toilet papering a tree for them. They only invented grasses so they could come back millions of years into the future and make patterns in it to freak hippies out.
All mammal reproduction is f’d up from a design standpoint. I mean, fine, make childbirth painful as punishment to women, whatever, that can make sense from strictly an internal-logic standpoint. But, have the birth canal go through a tiny hole in the pelvis makes no sense and is very dangerous, killing mother and baby all the time if one tiny thing goes wrong. Kind of interferes with that whole “go forth and propagate” idea…
Cryptozoology is the study or pursuit of hidden or unverified animals. it should not surprise anyone that creationists are involved in this field as reports of Mokele-mbembes in Equatorial Africa or pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea attract young earth creationists who believe than man and dinosaurs co-existed.
However, regardless of the side you take on this issue, the discovery of any creature that was contemporary with the dinosaurs should not really surprise anyone. According to the evolutionary timeline, The horseshoe crab has been around for 250 million years, the African lungfish has been here for 100 million years, the ceolacanth for 60-70 million years, the Tuatara lizard for 200 million years, and various insects such as bees, mosquitoes and flies for 80 million years or more. Mokele-mbembe, IF it is discovered, and IF it is closely related to an extinct sauropod of some kind, it will become the largest “living fossil” in the world, and a spectacular one at that. Likewise, if anything close to a living pterosaur is ever discovered, it will be treated with the same (brief) media sensationalistic overview. However, science will have the last say on all such discoveries, juast as it does with the hundreds of new insect/mammal/reptile/bird discoveries that are made around the world each year. .
As for all creationists being “liars,” I guess that most of the founding father’s of science weren’t terribly honest people in that case.
