Now we're bashing that evil technology thing, which isn't as good as religion, obviously. Stan points out most of the posters would be dead because life expectancy was low before if was helped along by medicine, sanitation, etc.

But that's a BIG LIEŠ Big Science.

It turns out life expectancy was low... because of slavery - source, Vox Day's terrible book.

I guess that someone is pointing out that in ancient times, people lived 900 years - just look at Adam and Noah! ?

Maybe someone can point out that there is evidence that life span and health was greater in ancient times, well, greater until the advent of farming, when life expectancy and health dropped.  Then it kept on down until science came along and progress was made.  His whole Biblical view was right down there in the low-and-dirty lifespan.

Someone needs to get Teddy a working brain.
