FirstNationalBastard: I would have no problem with creationism or intelligent design being taught in schools. Hell, I'd even agree to the bible being required reading...

...in english class, where they teach all the other fantasy novels and fantastic, implausible ideas.


Back when I was in high school, we spent most of our lunch periods in the library. One day, my friend Bill notices the Bible was in the mythology section.

Bill: Why did they put the Bible there?
Me: That's where it belongs.

He was not amused, but I sure as Hell was

You can't teach creationism/intelligent design while requiring students to actually read the Bible.  You have to choose one or the other.

Anyone who actually reads the Bible -- and comprehends what it says -- will realize in short order that the biblical creation story is Grade-A crap.  We can't have that.  Not in 'Murica.

Has the question of who Cain and Abel married ever been answered?

ZeroCorpse: I used to be an antitheist. I raged against "God" being on money and in our Pledge of Allegiance, but now I simply don't care. If people want to believe in God, that's their problem. If people want to worship frozen peas, they're welcome to do so. If people want to put their underwear on their head while they say the Pledge of Allegiance, then they can go right ahead and do that. It doesn't bother me at all.

Here's the problem I have with people that believe in YEC, or that all different forms of life were created at the same time, and didn't evolve from common ancestors:

In order for this view to jive with clearly evident data, then you must assume that God created the entire planet 6000 years ago, and then planted evidence all over the place that would disprove that act.  He changed the decay rate of radioisotopes so that dating anything that was past 4004 BC is unreliable.  He created all the light from distant stars already en route to earth.  He planted mounds of fossils and other evidence pointing to evolution.  He did all this in order to make you question the Bible.  This view leads to only one inescapable conclusion: God is a troll, and a piss-poor one at that.

Has the question of who Cain and Abel married ever been answered?

The Bible does not say that Adam and Eve were the first people; only that they were the first ones created to be with God through eternity.  When Cain kills Abel, God puts a mark on his head to protect him from "the other peoples of the world."  Case closed -- either God did multiple creations (my Weenersor believed this), or there were already a lot of folks in the world when God created Adam and Eve to be the beginnings of the bloodline that would eventually become the Jews.


so then fan fiction?

Dr Dreidel: shastacola: Has the question of who Cain and Abel married ever been answered?

"Just because Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel (and later, Seth) were the only people mentioned, doesn't mean they were the only people. Maybe those 4/5 were the only ones worth mentioning, and the facts of early man gettin' down are assumed to have involved women other than Mama Eve (which doesn't really add to the story). The genealogical exposition in Genesis establishes the patrilineal line, so none of the women are mentioned.

// the same way we don't know much about Biblical women in general - like who married Reuben, for example




So, fan fiction then.
