|Since Gary's so boring and clueless, I thought I'd mention that the exchange on the TT link I gave, between Guts and several other commenters about his newfound skepticism, is pretty interesting. He mentions Newtown, they say the Problem of Evil is no big problem for theism at all, and he goes on to give evidence--some from his critics' own comments--that it's actually a really big fuckin problem for christianity. Worth a gander.|
Thanks for the reference Steve. Quite enjoyable compared with Gary's...uh...lunacy and UD's crickets.
In reading through, this comment from Daniel caught my attention in particular:

As all fundamentalist kids eventually ask “Just exactly who did Cain,Able and Seth marry?”
And any good fundamentalist parent will answer with Genesis 5:4 – "After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters." (BTW, I don't think Abel married anyone!)
Danny-boy there clearly didn't think through his knee-jerk fundy parent response. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that Caine's and Seth's wives/sisters must have been several hundred years younger than their husbands/brothers.
