Very valid point right there ... and LMAO at the do it yourself water to wine statement ... Hilarious!!!Originally Posted by WittyThe difference between a 9th grade biology textbook and the bible is that a 9th grade biology textbook has been backed by hundreds of years of research and experimentation, the Bible was written a long time ago by people who did not understand science who then fed that shit to generations to come through threats. Nowhere in a biology textbook does it tell me to believe what it is saying or else I will go to hell or suffer. there is a huge difference. I understand that not everything they teach you in school is true...a Lot of Historical periods (especially when dealing with a time when America was doing wrong) are softened, censored or even erased, but the thing with science is you can look into it, do research, experiment yourself and realize that what they are saying is true. you cant do that with a holybook...I dont think theres a "turn water into wine: do it yourself" in the new testament.
Also, I am simply asking that the person i am arguing with understands the theory of evolution, he doesnt have to believe in it, but for fucks sake, know what you are arguing against. When you tell me something about a theory I belive in that is obviously false(when dealing with the theory), you come off as an idiot.
I find out you are hypothetically Jewish:
Me: You are jewish. That means you celebrate christmas.
You: You're an idiot.
See I dont have to believe in Judaism, but I look like an ass making statements about judiasm that arent just remotely wrong, but RIDICULOUSLY wrong.
I see your initial point, but you are dealing with apples and oranges here.
