RE: Most Unintelligent Scientific Belief Held by Some Christians?
Rabbi Boteach continues to stun me with his ignorance in any debate I watch him in. One he did with Hitchens, he claimed:
1) Schools teach that the Earth is 16 billion years old
2) Stephen Jay Gould didn't believe in evolution
Not exactly scientific beliefs he held, but related and ridiculous nonetheless. (And I know he's not a Christian, but I'm sticking this here anyway. Tongue)

"Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way."
- Christopher Hitchens

Found this gem today. From someone I completely didn't expect to.

http://www.icr.org/article/6533/

It's an article on whale bone inland in Chile. Someone posted a reply link of an article about the flinstones and said it had the same credibility. Ha ha.

Isn't it obvious? It's because God likes monkeys. He didn't create us of course - we evolved from monkeys - but after they evolved out of existence, God said "Hey! I liked those!" and created them.

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

Oh, yes - we believe in micro-evolution, but not in macro-evolution.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

It's not clear what your point is. Is this ironic?

I know. I'm confused as to whether I should mock the point made or see it as an ingenious example of parody.

Do a little research - Moses could not possibly have written Genesis.
