|Also, to shed some light on my motivation for starting the thread, much to the contrary of proposed theories, I posted that story as sarcasm. Personally, I find it pathetic that the SBC or any other organization feel so pressured that they must jump on a brain-dead bandwagon to curry favor. Just a hint, the SBC doesn't really embrace GW, this is PR, nothing more. If you follow SB theology, outside of the commandment to tend the Garden, baptists and most fundamentalists believe that God is directly in control and nothing mankind can do or say will change that. The world will end at God's command and not a moment before and if God chooses to use GW or a rain of fire then incandescent light bulbs and hybrid cars aren't going to change that. It's PR and that's why it's easier to embrace than evolution because they don't really believe it either.|
And *that* is quite clearly and irrefutably wrong.
Psst. Skeptic. If you die, the world doesn't end. It'll be here no matter how badly we fuck it up. At least until we start playing with sufficiently large quantities of anti-matter.
Earth does not require humans.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
