Funny stuff:
Quote: Fundies

The Bible records the genealogies from Adam to Christ. From the ages given in these lists (and accepting that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to Earth around 2,000 years ago), we can conclude that the universe is only a few thousand years old (perhaps just 6,000), and not millions of years old.

And normal people can conclude that these fundies are imbeciles.

Is this implying evolution is real in their minds? I thought that was a definite no-no.

Oh my. Another Clarence Darrow wannabe trapped in Divorce Court. SIGH !

I am an agnostic; I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.

No they got all kinds of crazy to explain it away. Evolution is real but only micro evolution you can never change kinds. So zebras descend from horses but an elephant can never change "kinds" and become a whale. No idea what a kind actually is but thats what they go with.

As someone who was raised in the church, went to Christian school K-12, and was taught creationism, I'm actually looking forward to the Bill Nye vs. Ken Hamm debate.

My current beliefs are pretty much agnostic but I hang around a lot of scientist types (my fiance has a masters in Molecular and Cellular Biology). So they get outraged a lot about this stuff. I know plenty of smart people who believe in young-earth, literal 7-days creationism. Hopefully the debate will be interesting.
