Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?

You think if God wanted to provide something to fuel people's cars he would have been able to provide something that was much more environmental friendly than oil.

More proof of what a bad designer God was. He would have got an F in even the simpliest engineering class.

Which circle of hell do we scientists end up in, do you suppose?

I think most of you would end up in the City of Dis which if I remember correctly is the 5th level (perhaps the 6th?).

Edited to add - it is the 6th.

Referring to the city of Dis, from Dante's levels of hell. The city of Dis is the level of hell to which all non-believers, who have not otherwise sinned greatly, will go. The city is surrounded by a field containing countless numbers of burning coffins, in which the heretics lie, screaming. Limbs from non-believers are scattered around the plains, and the city itself is surrounded by thick iron walls.

Well, like Slick Willy, the Devil's a good liar.

No, see, the environment is fine. Many will call out that there is nothing left in the land of plenty, but see, the earth will not pass away until God says it's ready. Humanity is God's favored, and will not be going anywhere anytime soon, until Jesus returns and obliterates all of the non-believers, and fake "liberal" Christians.

Dave Allen had a joke about hell being filled with all the prostitutes, gamblers, booze makers, so how could it be bad for them? I miss him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nznZL6i9_co

I'd say in the Sixth Circle with other heretics, even tho one could argue it could be the Seventh with blasphemers (and sodomites, just because).

Personally, working in science popularization as well as actual research, I have dibs on the Eighth Circle too (fraudulent advisers). Who knows how many students and adults I have turned with my dark powers of teaching and explaining!

- and if the limbs from non-believers are scattered around the plains, those scientists would be able to create bionic legs and arms to replace them which is much mroe than any faith healer has ever done.

One thing I have never quite understood - why would the devil want to punish those who oppose God?

God noticed the fence between Heaven and Hell was falling apart. God calls the Devil to fix the fence on his side or he'll sue old Nick. The Devil says good luck with that, all the lawyers are here with me. I love those Dave Allen jokes.
