Seems legit.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

#1 - It's possible to meet with Tolkien to have a face to face conversation about the book. Can we do that with God?
#2 - It's a universal understanding that Lord Of The Rings is fiction. Can we say that about the bible?
#3 - Would it make sense to live ones life as if Lord Of The Rings was real?
#4 - Would it make sense to bend laws and policies around Lord Of The Rings as if it were real?
#5 - Is it right to condemn others for not living the laws of land as defined in Lord Of The Rings ?

It's not ridiculous to ask for proof to back up major, life altering claims such as those in the bible and if these claims were true it wouldn't be so hard to prove outside the bible. Instead one must have a good imagination such as when you read Lord Of The Rings. Ironic.

Well...
Many a law has been passed in parliament here because of those films, and many a law more has been passed to assure that The Hobbit movies were filmed here.
In fact, John Key (our PM) was over in Hollywood the other day meeting with Warner Brothers to work out some shit to assure that more blockbuster movies are filmed here.

So I would say considering the impact those movies have had on the NZ economy and because law was required to be passed through law that assured they were filmed here, I would say that it makes perfect sense that law is passed as a result of Lord of the Rings.

And lets ignore radiometric dating.

Argon–argon dating
Before Present
Closure temperature
Cosmogenic nuclide
Environmental radioactivity

RE: David, The Theist
If I used the bible as I guide book for dating, I'd never get any pussy!

No wait!

I can have slave girls and virgins captured from massacred villages and I can rape if I'm prepared to marry them afterwards

... but that's not exactly what I'd call dating.

Thanks for posting this ! A lot. I'd like your permission to use it in a Creationist-refutation we're making for YouTube. It gets worse.
Two things.
The thing is ALL those systems exhibit approximately the same result. I will multiply it out a bit later, but since the probabilities are multiplied, the "improbability", (in statistics), that any 2 are wrong AT THE SAME TIME, and wrong, are multipled. For example if, (just for example ..I'm making up the numbers), if ice core data is known to be correct as, (VERY low estimate), 75 % correct, and dendrochronology is 60 % correct, then the probability that they come out with the same number, and BOTH be wrong, is

1/(.75 x .60) = 1/(.45). So that means it's, just by two of them, you combine them and get a more than 50/50 chance they are both right. (Most of those systems are 99 + % accurate.) So multiple them all together, and you get an EXTREMELY low (ie "0" %) chance they are wrong, taken together.

Ok then they say "well the universe was different "back then".
Ok
So, in order for THAT to be true, AND to observe the result we see today, they ALL would have had to be *wrong* in exactly the SAME way wrong, in order to come out showing the result we see today, and the probability of THAT is just as bad. So either way, it makes no sense.

Thumbsup Just sayin'.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: David, The Theist
dates with guys are soo much fun though. why would u give that up?

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.
