I'm a hard core Christian that believes in the Genesis account of creation and I wouldn't flip.


Bull shite. That would be conclusive proof over evolution. I guarantee you'd be flipping your shite when it is 10000% proven that Genesis didn't happen (let's face facts, it didn't happen, but that would be the final nail in the coffin). I still can hardly believe people are dumb enough to believe that Noah's Ark actually happened.

Instead of bombing the frick out of brown people, why don't we invest it in something that will help out mankind?

our government will never stop bombing brown people, they would just use this as an opportunity to further increase government size and spending, and then do both.

there's no doubt that at least a few dozen people on Earth believe this. I've even heard of a "Christian" museum displaying such. that doesn't mean it is representative of Christianity as a whole. Apparently, this person has never left the confines of his county in Arkansas.


You guys severely underestimate how widely believed in Young-Earth Creationism is. Every. Single. Kid. Where I went to school thought evolution was laughable. They warned us about college constantly, about how the professors would try to poison our minds against the truths we were being taught.

Hamilton Christian Academy. Lake Charles, LA. For real.

Is there something in the link you provided that says they believe dinosaurs and humans lived together? If it does, I missed it.

I pretty much nailed it. an enrollment of about 500 kids, in one city. Are you 12?

re: Extraterrestrials are discovered, how do you think the world reacts


If its the movie type aliens good or bad...

Washington and Wall Street become ghost towns. Markets are frozen.
Air trans possible shut down.
Productivity plummets.
World wide run on hurrican type supplies and gun shops sell out.
Lots of notes found saying 'told you so' as horders and survivalist dissapear around the globe.
All communication with the military and its bases shut down. Their busy implementing plan 9.
Then the world holds its breath till we find out if its war,slavery or we have new neighbors.

If its simple life found in the solar system a collective meh, but it would damn sure help NASA funding.
Hmmmmm?

Yes. And I clicked on that link and it doesn't say dinosaurs and humans lived together.

It has happened twice before, both in completely inverse situations: The Moon Landing and 9/11. Hopefully to god we aren't the degenerate fricks you think we are and can actually come together for the greatness of humanity and advance us as a whole.

Decent point, but we need to kill the foreigners through our advancements and technology, not weapons.

You like to write B.S. a lot don't you? No, life on another planet wouldn't necessarily disprove the Genesis account of life on earth. God could have seeded both worlds and many more if that were his plan. But I understand that you have already formulated your opinion about this topic and my answers don't fit your narrative.

Sorry, but anyone who believes the Earth is less than 10000 years old I can easily conclude that they are an idiot and refuses to think at all. No offense, but if you believe that, you certainly didn't graduate near the top of your class.

Are you an idiot? They purchase a curriculum that is distributed to thousands across the country. I'm 22 and extremely happy to be the hell out of fantasy land.

Please do a random genetics test of say 3 species, and that will definitively prove Noah's Ark certainly didn't happen. If you think otherwise, then you are anti-science, anti-intelligence, and anti-advancement.

Guess you're one of those people that think dinosaurs were planted there by Satan.

It has happened twice before, both in completely inverse situations: The Moon Landing and 9/11.
even in the midst of US unity behind these two events, there was a great divide among the American people. During the time of the Moon Landing, race relations were a nightmare, homosexuality was becoming mainstream and causing a divide, and Republicans and Democrats were acting very similarly to how they act now.

the 9/11 unity lasted several hours before liberals were blasting Bush for his handling of the events. Americans were united against the brown people, but still had the same hatred and animosity that you see today. Overall, 9/11 was used to further divide America more than any event in modern history.

No offense but you're an idiot.

Okay, I admit that WAS intended to be offensive....



Where have I written anything in this thread that hints that I believe the Earth is 10,000 years old?

FWIW, although I don't need to explain my beliefs to you, I'm an atheist.

I just don't think I need to reinforce my personal beliefs by belittling what others believe. You apparently are so insecure in your own beliefs you need to do exactly that.

Wrong again. I was my high school valedictorian and as an undergraduate I finished first in my college at LSU.

It looks like the Curiousity team is about to announce something like this. The implications will be staggering.


This could be huge, or it could just be announcement of finding methane. And while methane is mainly produced by life on earth, doesn't mean its the case on mars.

quote:

There are either other intelligent, sentient life forms in the universe, or there are not. Either possibility is frightening.


There is no way we will ever know this, at least in our life times. but I would absolutely astonished if there is not other intelligent life in the universe. There are more stars than grains of sands on earth.

If its, for every million star systems, there are is a planet orbiting that star (1/10^6), and if for million star systems with planets, one is in the habitable zone (1/10^6) And for every million habitable planets, one has intelligent life (1/10^6). (3 sextillion total stars) There would still 300k intelligent life forms out there.

Of course, we think planets are a lot more common than that.

thousands across the country

thousands among a population of over 300 million. And, if you don't believe it, not every person that is taught it believes it. So, let's say a very high % of thousands out of a population of over 300 million. Yeah, that represents Christianity as a whole.

Honestly lets start simple with single celled organisms on Mars. If this were discovered on Mars, how do you think people would handle it? Would the Anti-Evolution people deny they exist? Would there be mass protest with doomsday scenarios? Would we advance or descend in chaos? What if they contacted us and the population knew? How would we handle this mentally and politically?


They would re-interpret the Bible and claim that the Bible predicted that all along, and that in no way affects the Word.
