Wait! Didn't you claim the opposite a few pages back? Or tried to say that Earmuffs was wrong in his interpretation?

Shoo fly
No.

RE: the God term
I love when Christians doesn't realize the difference between God and god (notice the capitalized G, hence a name).

God is the name of the guy believed to be the supreme ruler in a few religions.
Gods are supernatural beings, linked to religion.

Let me ask you this. For what purpose do you personally find this knowledge of value?

Yes you do dabble in wordplay.

I think you are either hiding as a Young-Earth believer when you say you don't know the age of the Earth, or you write speeches for Marco Rubio.

When geologist tell you the Earth is 4.54 billion years old, within 1% accuracy I'd say that falls in the WE'RE PRETTY FUCKING SURE column. (The age of the Earth is 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years (4.54 × 109 years ± 1%)

I, unlike you apparently, value all knowledge. It helps paint a clearer picture of where we fit in the scope of the universe without resorting to woo like you do.
I value knowledge too. I'm selective as to what is important to know that's all.

A man came out of the jungle into the village. And when the natives noticed him, he made the universal gesture of peace. "Ooga Booga", they cried. "Kill him because he is trying to woo us".

I capitalize the G so as to denote the absolute and draw the distinction from false gods.

And you don't think knowledge regarding our home planet qualifies as important? You're serious aren't you? WeepingLaughat

The term is "snu snu" not Ooga Booga.

Two men were trapped on an island of savages. The chief gives them a choice. You may choose "snu snu" or you may choose death. The first man chooses snu snu.
Several large savages take him and rape him violently. Afterwards, the man is free to go. The second man decides he'll choose death.
The chief smiles and yells out "death by snu snu!"

Yet you fail to draw such a distinction, mainly because there is no distinction between Zeus, Allah, Yahweh, The Flying Spaghetti Monster (hallowed be his meatballs), Vishnu, The Celestial Bureaucracy, Odin, Captain America, Kal-el aka Superman, and any other of the hundreds of thousands of other mythical fictitious characters.

RE: the God term
A bunch of poor kids are playing guns in the sandlot, using sticks, when over comes Richie Dick with his slicked-back hair, rosy cheeks, a certain look in the eye... an easy smile...

Says he's got a bright shiny new toy. Says it is wonderful, and full of joy. But when the kids gather round empty are his hands. Richie Dick the certain prick says sorry, kids, you wouldn't understand.

Would you pick up a stick, Richie Dick, and join in the fray?
Of course not, you blighted sot, but for your soul, I'll pray.

That's what we got here. Either he is total sincere, or total troll, but either way, he's a total douchebag.

This is what I am getting at. You essentially are saying that you personally would not see eating someone elses child as immoral. My next question: Is it because it is unacceptable in our society that you feel this way?

"Man of Steel" is coming out to a theatre near you soon! Praise be Kal-el!
