Words of Wisdom from Carl Everett:
"God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve. The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Somebody actually saw Adam and Eve eating apples. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."
To add: THIS is exactly why religion doesn't need to be incorporated into our schools. Schools should be about facts or factual science as we best know it (until better information arises). Religions are conjectures and largely untested assumptions...and apparently are affecting IQ levels.
This is a chunk of the reason democracy is in deep trouble. The scientists are brimming with vitally important factual information, but the policy makers and the dumbass voters who elect those politicians resolutely ignore them, as if education were a disease. We have religion to thank for this, religion and cynical corporate elites eager to exploit that faith-fueled ignorance
Just watched a great video on PBS, Nova series, "The Extinction of the Dinosaurs." The episode even goes into the conditions a billion years and theorized how the asteroid was formed. The last day of Dinosaurs was 66 million years ago. There is absolutely no instance of dinosaur and human bones found even remotely together. Humans didn't start evolving until some 65+ million years after the dinosaurs died out. Since they were the first how can someone say they saw this supposed mythical Adam and Eve eating an Apple? Again religious BS.
Anybody who speaks words that stupid with the confidence and authority to mean them has the makings of a true religious leader.Slinging bullshit with absolute sincerity is a valuable skill.It'll get you a megachurch pulpit or the corner office in Congress.
If the Creation story is to be believed, dinosaurs and humans existed on Earth at the same time. There are "creation museums" around the country that depict humans sharing time and space with dinosaurs.
Question: how was it that Noah could be so diligent and so thorough as to get the smallest critters like beetles and skinks aboard the ark, and yet forget the dinosaurs. How do you miss a dinosaur?
Somebody saw Adam and Eve eating apples. "Forbidden fruit" does not translate into apples. If it did then we have to all be sinners for eating apples or for just disobeying god. Either way the story is pretty silly. Using your eyewitness viewpoint lets move along to the chronicled events of Jesus and his 40 days and 40 nights in the desert. Who recorded this event? Let's get right into Jesus and the Devil and the temptation to jump off a high mountain (the temple in other versions) and ask who recorded that. BTW, the bible says nothing about dinosaurs because the writers knew nothing of dinosaurs.
