God Said, Man Said
I heard this advertised on my satellite radio, so I figured I'd look. It is definitely a fundie website.

http://godsaidmansaid.com/


There is too much there for me to digest in one post, but, wow...
wow..


Basically, from their own web-site here is what they say...

Godsaidmansaid.com is not Catholic or Protestant in orientation. We are simply WORD people. We endorse every verse found in the majority-text Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible.

Why are you still reading this line when it is obviously my signature line?

RE: God Said, Man Said
I love that the first video under Archaeology is about dinosaurs. That is only a slight error.
One statement in the post about the dinosaurs
"Consider the fact that 90% of females in the United States will be widowed."
What? How are they calculating this statistic? Is this due to the average age of women vs. men? Their is no citation for this claim. They do however use other references in the article, but the only one that appears to be from actual scientific research is listed by title only, ergo no journal name and no full authorship so trying to find it would be very difficult indeed. And given the way it was written it is almost certainly not written for a scientific audience but a popular audience, and even the quotes they use do not imply that the researchers think the fossils are younger than 65 million years, only that the level of preservation is fascinating and astounding.

This will be an interesting site to peruse.

I ran into that "soft tissue" issue and remember reading an interview with Dr. Schweitzer. She was really surprised at the way her work and research were twisted around by creation groups who did not seem at all interested in understand it.

Alas, this is the crux of science. Try to make it easy to understand for everyone and they contort it instead by ignoring the parts they don't understand or don't like. They are perfectly happy to accept the claim that they found red blood cells but cannot accept the claim that they are from the Cretaceous period that started 146 million years ago and ended 65 million years ago.

Now, what exactly is "Majority Text"?

Probably a keyword that boils down to "the parts of the bible that we like".

I mean, even if that's not what they intend, any qualification on what bible you believe, or which verses you accept automatically have that qualifier. It's not like you can believe every verse of a self-contradicting book.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've stumbled across this site relatively recently. To dovetail this with Mathilda's thread about naming things that would destroy your faith, THIS site would have seriously crushed my faith in God many years ago if I knew it existed.

According to the site, the sharpest humans in the world lived around 2500 - 3000 BC. Since then, it's all been downhill for us humans with respect to intelligence. Too bad the scientists/inventors/thinkers since the age of enlightenment didn't get the memo - especially those living in the 20th century and today...

Why can't we be smart like our ancestors???

Wait, what?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I don't click on insanity links.
I believe there is a causal effect from clicking on the link and going insane.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

There are 7 billion people alive today, on average taking a shit twice a day.

That's 14 billion shits every single day... In two years, that's about 1 trillion shits!

God says bury it...
