So many people are into all this "science" stuff. Which is really unfortunate, because time and time again, the Bible has disproved science. Scientists have tried to convince us of so many silly things over the years and their just wrong, praise the sweet name of Jesus.

Scientists have tried to convince us that dinosaurs existed millions of years before man. Yet the Holy Bible tells us that the world only existed for 6000 years.

Scientists will try to make you believe that the earth is round, when the Holy Bible clearly proves that the earth is flat and has four corners. (Isaiah 11:12 and Revelation 7:1)

Scientists will try to tell you that clouds are formed by this thing they called "Condensation of...moisture" When the Holy Bible clearly proves to us in the first chapter of Nahum that clouds are the dust of God's feet.

Scientists will try to tell you that pi is equal to 3.14 When the Holy bible clearly proves to us, in second chronicles, chapter 4 that pi is equal to 3. This has affected me on a very personal level. As a result of this, at my church, we had to ban circles. It's been somewhat difficult to adapt, the pi=3 tires on our cars for instance, don't get the same gas mileage.

Scientists will try to get you to believe this nonsense that homersexuality is caused by a persons environment and genetics, this is nonsense, homersexuality is a choice. Sodomites just want to be deviant.

You just can't believe the crazy stuff scientists tell you, it's all fuzzy math nonsense! PRAISE THE SWEET NAME OF JESUS! Glory to God!

I think this might be a joke. I honestly can't tell. According to Poe's Law, and rightly so, it's nearly impossible to tell without a smiley face or something at the end.

I've seen posts nearly this bad in the past but I must say this one is absolutely classic. It strongly reminds me of a fantastic Youtube video.

In case people care, the obvious problem that absolutely nothing in the Bible is proved in the first place is a critical flaw in your argument. You are saying that science is wrong because the Bible says something else and therefore the Bible is right. This is assuming the Bible in order to prove the Bible. You are clearly working without a foundation and the assumption of the Bible doesn't salvage anything. One could accept the Koran and conclude that Jesus isn't God because it says so right there in the Koran.

Dinosaurs did live millions of years before man about 64 million years prior to man. We know this because we have fantastic dating methods based on rather basic physics which, using two or three of these different methods to confirm and verify the dates we understand that the last non-avian dinosaurs died out at the P-T transition. The Bible is wrong when it says the universe was created several thousand years after the Assyrians first brewed beer.

The flat-Earth views in the Bible are quite amusing, almost as fun as the talk about the firmament of heaven which is like a giant dome over the flat earth which allows rain to fall when the windows of heaven are open.

God's feet. Heh.

Actually pi is closer to 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510 (which is all I have memorized of the number). Oddly enough a number of cultures had pi far closer than 3 by the time second Chronicles was written.

Science >> Bible.

"
Science and religion are not seperate. it is what they have become. If you blend the two, you will see that so much more of everything can be understood."

A fake understanding caused by mixing reason and faith will eventually blow up in your face- much like the more concrete explosion you get by mixing matter and antimatter.

Science consists of using your mind to perceive facts. Faith consists of surrendering your mind to accept stories. They can have no proper interaction but conflict.

Am I the only person on this site who believes in Einsteins quote: "Religion without science is dead, and science without religion is dead."

Science and religion are not seperate. it is what they have become. If you blend the two, you will see that so much more of everything can be understood.

Unfortunately today we have scientists who refuse to change thier view points even when faced with overwhelming proof. Some people still don't believe Jesus existed. The real question is not whether he existed or not, but if He really was the Son of God!!!!!!!!!! We have Christians that refuse to look at things with an open mind.

I am a firm Christian of the old school, but I don't think that arguements like these attract people to Jesus. They are senseless and idiotic, and unfounded by anything in Scripture. "Test and see what is good and holy" That is a verse somewhere in the Bible, and it fits in with "science" Science is a religion noadays apperantly. But that isn't the question. I'm done.

Sarsin,

I think the o's in his church are not represented with real circles. They are represented with pi = 3 circles. :)

PastorJoshua is a troll. We kindly remind all of you not to feed the trolls, since it detracts from legitimate debates. :)

One of my ancestors owned a dinosaur pet shop. Except the sign "Dinosaur pet shop" was written "Din[]saur pet sh[]p" because like your church, he also had to ban circles...

Those evil circles...

Vote's for Con.

""PRAISE THE SEWEET NAME OF JESUS"
"

This is his "favorite quote." I think in lieu of a smiley we know from this he is either involved in a satire- or deluded by a satire :D
