Creationism

_

Once in 10,000 years event: Combination of six [lottery] numbers repeats itself twice, less than a month apart.”

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3970484,00.html

[Ten thousand years?   Why,  that's   older   than   Earth   itself .    What   nonsense !]

———————

When geologists unequivocally dismissed the idea of a global flood and recognized Earth’s antiquity, many conservative theologians acknowledged that there was more to the past than literally spelled out in Genesis, the opening chapter of the Bible.  But some Christians—those we now call creationists—rejected this perspective and chose to see geology as a threat to their faith. In so doing, they abandoned faith in reason and cast off a long-standing theological tradition that rocks don’t lie.”

[ASND would like to remind the Geological Society of America (if they would actually listen) that  many   credentialed   scientists  who also happen to be creationists have shown that the  most   literal  (i.e. author-intended) interpretation of Genesis actually fits a very old Earth and universe better than it does a young Earth and universe.]

According to this author’s view, belief in an old earth and in days as “ages” is perfectly consistent with belief that God created in six literal days.

[Uhm, isn't that  what   we   just  had ? ]

[And  haven't   we   had   these   same   kinds  of  things  for  billions  of  years ? ]

[And don't we  expect   these kinds of things  to continue as long as we continue to live here?]

[Then why do we keep reading about these “predictions” in the mainstream media?]

Creationists Convince South Korean Officials to Remove Evolutionary References From High School Textbooks

[ASND wonders why they couldn't just teach all the evidence, pro and con, and let the students think for themselves.]

————————

Nobody Important  was trolling through a Facebook blog today and came across this question:

Is the book of Genesis (particularly the story of Adam and Eve) historical or allegorical?

ASND is happy to answer that question with a series of essays, beginning at the Beginning and passing though, and beyond, Adam and Eve.

You’re welcome.

Some think that we [humans on Earth] are insignificant because the universe is so vast and old.  But… we have discovered in cosmology… that the universe must be vast and old in order for you to come onto the scene and wonder about your supposed insignificance…   Every single galaxy you see has contributed to the short sentence of life that you write in the book of cosmic history.
