Ego edo infantia cattus: They grow up so fast.

Ha! WRONG!!!

I don't see any elephants or a giant tortoise under that thing, so it's obviously fraudulent.

Pat Robertson: "The Bible is not literally true, and the Earth is more than 6000 years old."

Young Earth Creationists: "Pat Robertson is deceived, and does not speak for God."

I agree with both of these statements.

"You know, the world's twelve-thousand years old, and dinosaurs existed in that time, you'd think it would've been mentioned in the farking bible at some point. "And o, Jesus and the disciples walked to Nazareth, but the trail was blocked by a giant brontosaurus with a splinter in his paw. And o, the disciples did run a-shrieking 'What a big farking lizard, Lord.' But Jesus was unafraid, and he took the splinter from the brontosaurus' paw, and the big lizard became his friend. And Jesus sent him to Scotland where he lived in a Loch for oh so many years, inviting thousands of American tourists to bring their fat farking families and their fat dollar bills. And O Scotland did praise the Lord. Thank you, Lord."

Arkanaut: Vegan Meat Popsicle: This About That: Good for Pat Robertson, but WTF is "revealed science"? Is there also "secret science"?

Humans aren't smart enough to know things so god puts it in their heads instead just 'cause he's such a great guy.

More god of the gaps bullshiat that religionists use to backpeddle when they get proven plainly wrong about something yet again.

So basically:

1) God created all things
2) Science is a thing
3) Therefore, God created science?

4) Man destroys God with science
5) Man creates dinosaurs
6) Dinosaurs eat man
7) Woman inherits the earth

Arkanaut: abb3w: There's an aphorism in computer science, by Brian Kernighan: "Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you're as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it?" Obviously, the problem becomes even worse when you're trying to debug code written by someone more clever than you are. Less obviously, there's some underlying basis to the observation in mathematical proof theory (although the factor of two is sometimes horribly conservative), which in turn applies to reasoning in general.

In my experience, for every time you double the length of code, the code becomes four times as hard to debug, which I think makes this a geometric relationship.

//my $0.02

seriously off topic (wow, pat robertson, who'd a thunk it), but this seems pertinent to the coding comments:

"Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one instruction - from which, by induction, it is evident that every program can be reduced to one instruction that does not work."

eudemonist: rwfan: I was being sarcastic and I thought you were as well. There is a secret science?

There is science we do not yet understand. Perhaps that is what is meant.

It's called mad science. It's inspired by the Manitous.

I've had two theories for Pat:

1) He's been suffering from his version of senility by gaining mental acuity. It can't go down; it can only go up.

2) He wants a less harsh look in the history books, and thinks this and other recent "revelations" will spare him his dues. 

Either way, he sucks and the world will rejoice in his death.

Of course, that's only true because Pat Robertson is older than dirt.

He doesn't believe in Young Earth theology because if the Earth were young, he'd personally remember the Creation.

eraser8: burndtdan: It's only "god of the gaps" if you insist that something happens "because God, tada!", as if God were the methodology.

I'm not technically addressing the "god of the gaps" argument. I'm posing a very simple question: if any part of the Bible can be taken as anything less than literal (that is, less that true), how can we know that any of it is true? And, who is to decide what's strict and true and what just poetic license?

If only there were people who dedicated their careers to questions like this, who earned PhDs in fields like theology and biblical studies, becoming experts in Greek and Hebrew, examining the culture and literature of the context in which the bible was written to better understand the literary structures and styles of the times. If only these people wrote academic-level books about topics like these, and occasionally wrote popular-level books so that nonspecialists could engage with these kinds of issues. Then you might have somewhere to go for guidance as you ask these questions.

MrEricSir: Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Diagonal: No one has invoked Bevets yet?


It's been a REALLY long time since I've seen him post. I wonder if he's finally given up preaching to the unwashed masses of Fark.

He doesn't update his site anymore either.

Who knows, maybe his shrink put him on stronger meds.

He was raptured, duh.

djkutch: I've never understood why God needed to rest on the seventh day. You'd think God would be pretty indefatigable--what with being God and all.

Well, sparring with Chuck Norris on days 1 thru 6 will take its toll.. even on God.

Got to hand it to Chuck though.. He's a good guy letting God win.

meat0918: It still boggles my mind that we have all this accumulated data that the earth is way, WAY older than 6,000 years old, and that we have so many, many, many, MANY fossils, and DNA evidence, and all these facts that keep piling up, and it makes some people so uncomfortable that they go "No, I'll choose to believe this other thing, in spite of all the evidence it is incorrect, because it makes me feel good."

Fossils were aged and placed into the earth by the devil. Like on Pawn Stars where a guy brings in a "really old" pistol only to have Rick tell him it was made to look that way and it was really made in the early 2000s.

Or maybe Pat Robertson is just not ridiculous enough for Young Earth creationism.
