If You Accept What They Believe . . .

If, as Young Earth Creationists believe, the Earth is only about 6000 years old as indicated by their Holy Bible, then certain questions need to be addressed. For one, why does the Bible not mention dinosaurs?

Where are the battles between the courageous Hebrews and the Velociraptors? I am not talking about vague references to monsters in “Revelations,” c’mon. If I were to be in the close proximity of several tons of man rending dinosaur with all of its shit running down your leg adrenaline, I think I could describe that encounter with a few more definitive terms, that is if I survived. If I didn’t, wouldn’t my mates have a story about the “monster that ate Steve?”

Think about the sheer number and variety of dinosaur species that we have discovered and not a single one of them gets mentioned in scripture. Forget about all the camels mentioned in the Bible when there were no camels in Palestine, where are the fucking dinosaurs?

I know that many in the “God did it” crowd will say that God is so powerful he created the fossils of dinosaurs when he created the Earth. That’s effing brilliant; why would God deliberately mislead his people? Did he lay a trap for all of the pointy-headed intellectuals to stub their intellectual toes upon? Why would he not just leave them out?

If you do accept for a minute any of these foolish contentions, you are immediately thrust down a rabbit hole into some kind of Conservative Wonderland.

You may wonder what this has to do with Class Warfare. Well, the answer is simple: Republicans are putting people with such beliefs in important positions in Congress and state environmental agencies. People who can support such beliefs simultaneously with the findings of modern science can believe anything, which is exactly what the corporate plutocrats want. “We can burn all of the fossil fuels we want, Climate change is a hoax; in fact the ‘fact’ that fossil fuels are a limited resource is a hoax.” If you don’t think this is part of a plan of the plutocrats to provide themselves free sway in however they want to make their next billion dollars, think again. They didn’t create Young Earth Creationism, but they certainly have a use for it.

    • Damn, another marketing opportunity missed! I still like Dawkins’ “Religion: Together We Can Find a Cure.” I wish they had a shirt with a collar: teeshirts are so pedestrian .

  2. The Bible does not indicate that the Earth is only about 6000 years old.

    Genesis uses the word “day” to indicate the different stages of creation.

    Since Earth did not exist at the time of creation, the 24 hour Earth day did not exist either.

    Further, from science we know that the Earth day gets longer and longer due to the Moon’s gravitational influence.

    So really the Earth day constantly varies.

    That means people who believe in the 6000 year old Earth are all wet with Noah’s flood.

    • SOM,

      “Further, from science we know that the Earth day gets longer and longer due to the Moon’s gravitational influence.” This means that days used to be shorter, not longer. Verstehen sie?

      • Steve

        The Moon’s gravitational pull on Earth’s oceans actually slows down the Earth’s rotation.

        Three billion years ago Earth’s day was 10 hours.
