Kurmudgeon: None of the things listed in the article are referenced in The Bible.
False comparison is false.
Who are these "creationists" anyway? I saw tons of accusations yet no names to go with.
You'd think by 2012, the straw man argument would be out of usage, yet, there it is.
Ah well, your bias will lead you if you let it.


These are the creationists.
I took this at the Creation Museum near the Cincinnati Airport. Obviously there's enough of these people to support a whole museum. This one is my personal favorite.
I've got plenty more where that came from, too.

He should check the old jar of Smuckers Natural I have in the cabinet. I think we might be able to convince him.

What I like is how the complaints in the comments section, that the author didn't differentiate between DERP brand X and DERP brand Y, but rather lumped them both together under the general heading of DERP.

It's not even that subby, its more like "I don't understand X, therefore Jesus."

dmars: douchebag/hater: And btw: whenTF are you gonna start making 'Mohammed on a dinosaur' comments?
What's wrong? Chickenshiat?

If we made fun of Mohammed then christians would end up agreeing with us. Where is the fun in that.

In all seriousness, if you weren't mentally challenged you would realize that the majority of religious people that post on fark are christian and not Muslim. It is the same reason you find more viruses for windows and not macs. More people use windows. Going for the larger audience here.


Also Jesus is also one of the most important prophets in Islam, so Jesus with Raptor works as a twofer.

MBrady: StoPPeRmobile: MBrady: How is God "less complex?" Since God is all powerful, why would he make anything just as all powerful as He is?

So she can have her creations murder her as a him on cross. Duh.

God was not on the cross. It was Jesus in human form. Duh.


Heretic. Jesus is God is the Holy Spirit. Settled theology for a while now. I guess you weren't paying attention in Sunday school.

Why not teach both versions and let the children decide?

jakepowers: Also, I don't care if you say that Muhammad is blowing Jesus while rising a dinosaur. The only thing in that scenario that actually existed was the dinosaur.


So what you're saying is that if you had a four-way road, in the middle was a crisp, new hundred dollar bill, and in the surrounding streets there are a male-affectionate, easy to get along with, non-political agenda lesbian, Muhammed, Jesus and a dinosaur, the one that would get to the hundred dollar bill first is the dinosaur?

ThatBillmanGuy: doglover: impaler: Loved this comment:

"Tried to wade through the sarcasm and snark surrounding this article, but I drowned in a Great Flood of liberal hooey."

Science = liberal hooey.

"Feel free to disagree with anyone's beliefs, but mockery merely reveals ignorance."

I've never understood this stupidity. "You were not polite enough, therefore we can disregard all the facts you stated!"

In both these statements:
"2+2 = 4, kind sir."
"2+2 = 4, you damn idiot."

The "2+2 = 4" part of the statement is exactly equally true.

Not quite.

2+2 can equal 6 or even 8 in nine months.
2+2 can also equal -1 if the 2s are bullets.
2+2 can also add up to the best night ever if they're boobs.

So, all in all 2+2=4 is a fairly bold assertion. Kind of ballsy to even think about relying on it outside of math class.

Damn. All of that actually made sense... That's some might fine thinking outside the box there.


I made sense? Call your doctor right away. You need stronger meds!

ModernLuddite: ANY CONCEPT OF THE WORLD BASED ON EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE AND VERIFIABLE HYPOTHESIS IS A LIBERAL LIE


Actually, a certain famous poster here actually made that argument to me. He kept ranting that science was invalid so long as it discounted the supernatural in it's explanations.

When I asked how we were suppose to insert such things into the theory, when ID and religious folks will never give any measurable or quantifiable evidence, or even evidence to clearly divide supernatural from nature, he rejected my request. Why? Because I hadn't proved the material nature of the universe, and thus sticking to material arguments was wrong.
