Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?
anyway everyone thats ever eaten meat on a friday is going to hell no matter how good a person they are. literalists have to believe this. it has as much weight in the bible as 'gays are going to hell' but they never talk about it, probably due to them loving a bit of meat in their mouths. mmm delicious symbolism.
i don't get why a person from 2000 years ago's opinion has any bearing on science that didn't exist then and they couldn't have comprehended. the bible is the morality of an ancient middle eastern tribe, taking it literally makes you an annoying relic.
I've always felt 'A Piece of the Action' with its frequent references to 'The Book', which is what bible means, can be seen as a satire of how aliens might look at us placing so much of how to run a culture on the sayings and traditions of millenia long dead sheep headers and an itinerant carpenter.
