It makes you wonder if telling Abraham to kill his son was a mistake rather than a test. "Did I tell you to murder someone? Well, that's... it's just... you got punked! Yeah, that's it! There's a lamb... go kill it instead. Boy, you should've seen the look on your face, Abraham! Classic."

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

We've been reading about the wrong god. It's not YHWH, it's Loki and he loves to punk his children. Bigger than joking about the flood and killing Isaac, he planted fossils and made the university look really old even though it's only been around for 6,000 years.

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

Climate change explains the desertification of North Africa and the Middle East.

It's funny how you ask for a citation, then make your own assertion about the cause (uncited). Climate change, as we typically understand that phrase today, didn't happen before the Industrial Revolution -- and for that I would cite the graph of carbon trapped in Antarctic Ice that Al Gore displayed for An Inconvenient Truth, although it should be common sense.

I perhaps should have said that we have "scientific hypotheses" for a flood in the fertile crescent, although I did use my usual uncertain language ("which appears to actually be the case", "it's likely that a...") in case I was wrong, which is easy when you're talking about ancient history.

Whether or not there was a real flood is kinda beside the point, unless you planned to pass that information on yourself as fact -- it was just a further explanation of the logical fallacy behind assuming correlation means causation.

The global climate of the earth has changed many times over geologic time. The documented shifts in mean temperature, sea level, glaciation, and their effects on weather patterns show that most regions of the earth have gone from warm to cold, wet to dry, back and forth over time.

However, thanks for the citation.
