Ego edo infantia cattus: They grow up so fast.
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 things2) Science is a thing3) Therefore, God created science?
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
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.
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?
MrEricSir: Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Diagonal: No one has invoked Bevets yet?Wow.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.
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.
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."
common sense is an oxymoron: NutznGum: scannersexplodinghead.gifBevets may look something like that right about now.
