Stop trivializing their beliefs, subby. They believe the world is 6,000 years old, not 5,000. That's almost an entire order of magnitudity beyond what your headline implies. The fact that you can't even be bothered to learn the basics of their science and use fake news to mock their beliefs is all anybody needs to know about you and your inherent bigotry.

That, and who says man made it?

Yeah, but muscadine wine doesn't age well, so the stuff is useless at this point.

It can't be 6,000 years old forever... or can it?

That's the thing. It was 6000 years old when Jesus was born but that was only like 80 years ago.

You have to remember that wine was invented by Noah after the Flood, so that shaves a few thousand years off the the 6,000.

Decent chance it was Rkatsiteli or an ancestor.

Anything bottled that long is not wine.  It's Panther Piss. Which is right 100% of the time 60% of the time.

If the Earth was 6000 years old in 2000, why isn't 6017 now?  I'm guessing they can't count that high.

Tip on traveling to any of the former Soviet countries:

Most big cities in the former USSR have at least one really good Georgian restaurant. If you are ever in a position to try one out, I strongly recommend it.

I've been to Bishkek a few times and the first-timers who go there with me get blown-away by Georgian cuisine. And the wine is excellent, of course, they've been making it longer than anybody.

Is there a list somewhere of things that the middle east learned from Europe rather than the other way around?

We're well aware it's a duplicate, but the admin who greenlit it decided it was worthy of the Repeat tag.

You know, you all are connected to the Internet, and thus can look up the date in the Jewish calendar, which should tell you when the beginning of time was according to scripture. It happens to be the year 5778.

It's quite obvious that the devil put the wine there to tempt the good christians into to doing those terrible sexual things. Things that only drinking can make them do. Well, that or finding their sisters naked in the barn.
