    Statistically, if the "40% of Americans believe in Creationism" poll is correct, there should be a lot more creationists in Congress.
    What they choose to do with their religion is what matters.

    It's funny because Kingston is on Real Time frequently and I have always found him to be one of the more reasonable conservatives that Bill has on.

    To be fair, D.L. Hugley (a liberal) also said he didn't believe in evolution.

    I'm waiting for discussion as to whether the Earth is "flat" or "round".

    So in other words, you don't believe that God planted all them fossils 'n' shit so's we could find 'em and shit?

    Blasphemer.

    God didn't plant them, I thought they were all killed during the Great Flood, when Noah couldn't get the dinosaurs onto the Ark. And then rock formed around them. Not sure how rock could form in less than 5000 years, the Biblical age of the Earth, and find its way so deep beneath the surface, so God must've worked another miracle (whenever you can't come up with an answer, declare it a miracle and move on).

    Of course, that doesn't explain why the aquatic reptiles, like Plesiosaurs, also died out along with the dinosaurs, despite the water being their element, and how they all got into rocks, too. Yet another miracle, I guess. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I have never read the "Devil buried fossils" item, but the one about the Great Flood and the mudslides sounds like a good story.

    The plesiosaurs and mosasaurs and other large aquatic reptiles probably bought their plot when global cooling kicked in and the polar icecaps formed a few centuries after the flood.

    Or they are hiding out under water in the Bermuda Triangle with Amelia Earhart and the Grey Aliens.

    As for the "great fountains of the deep" as a source for all this water, one Creationist item I read suggested that the great ocean basins were once huge caverns full of pressurized waters that fed springs which misted the pre-flood earth.

    Apparently when God clobbered the earth with one or more asteroids to kick of the flood, this sent massive seismic reverberations thru the earth, breaking up these caverns - collapsing the roofs of said caverns and jump starting plate tectonics to make most of the geologic evidence of the pre-flood world disappear I to the mantle and under the deeps of the seas.

    After all, God wanted to make an end of all those nasty fallen angels (Greek Titans and Norse Jotunns and various multi-headed/multi-appendaged Vedic gods) that were making babies (Nephilim) with earthwomen...

    Fun stuff.

    rofl, this is sounding rather scientology-esque.

    Hey, you forgot one possible evolutionary scenario: aliens from another world conquer Earth, and everyone with IQ's above 100 or believes in evolution is killed. How's that for selective pressure? icon_twisted.gif

    I find it all just ...... sad

    That a man who is smart enough to dress himself, I'm assuming
    and smart enough to make his way through secondary schooling and get himself elected to a National Post is either too blind or too married to his political way of thinking to not be able to see or to understand that Evolution is the main driving force of THE NATURAL WORLD

    Oh, it gets even better. No space-born Jet-liners from Xenu though... but the "wheeled discs" of Ezekiel appearing in the days of Jared.

    That last bit was by a writer named Steven Quayle who has dabbled in crypto-archaelogy and particular in OOPARTS (Out of place artifacts) - with the belief that many of these OOPARTs (such as impossibly large human skulls in the Andes, various bits and bobs found in places that would be impossible to craft by the then indigenous human cultures.

    Quayle could be considered something of a conspiracy theorist as wellm but his defining work was Aliens and Fallen Angels: The Sexual Corruption of the Human Race

    One of the things he wrote about was to try to synchronize the various tales and myths into one event, that relates to some extra-biblical sources (The Book of Jashar, the Book of the Wars of YHWH, and the Keys of Enoch) which help to describe the specific events leading up to why YHWH destroyed the world with the flood in Genesis 5-6.

    The long and the short of Quayle's work is, the blood line of the Messiah was threatened by all these fallen angels sexing up human women and having monstrous offspring (where these offspring would continue to pass corruption downline into more humans, and being a chief reason why YHWH was concerned with sexual sin in the post-flood world).

    This corruption was both in genetic as well as moral terms, as these fallen spirits taught mankind various technologies and sorceries and what-not; by corrupting humanity and turning it against YHWH, as well as corrupting the human gene pool with demonically tampered DNA, the idea was to prevent the possibility of providing a human female host with undefiled DNA that could host the coming Messiah.

    Quayle suggests that our mythologies are a common culture memory of these near-godlike beings (angel/human hybrids) - and he indicates that the disembodied spirits of these (now extinct) Nephilim might appear to us in the future as aliens to come anal-probe us and tamper with our genes some more in the last days.

    I blame Monsanto, the source of all evil genetic modifications! icon_biggrin.gif

    Hey fella's !!!! According to what the bible thumpers think, God's been "hella" busy !!! He's still working his magic too, every time someone does something he doesn't like he punishes them, like an accident to teach them a lesson, or if a country gets too lenient with the gays, he throws in a hurricane , and I heard one preacher the other day say that 9-11 happened because the US Government pressured Israel to give up some land or part of Jerusalem and the bible says that Jerusalem belongs only to the jews. YESSIREEE !!!! GODS BUSY WORKING HIS MYSTERIOUS WAYS

    It's a pet hobby, great for breaking the ice at dinner parties and such.

    I think that there is probably a (very small) kernel of truth underlying the rise of religions to explain things that took place in our common genetic memory (things assigning gods to natural phenomena, and certain parallels between the lines of mythology).

    I try not to get too dogmatic about my stance on the origin of the universe, since my less-than-40 year lifespan at present does not afford me the ability to bear witness to the (pick one) evolution of species over 4 billion years, or the Creationist account of 6,000 years.

    Although one idea that catches my fancy is the Great Green Arkleseizure Theory, which was put forward by those lovely folks from Viltvodle VI not too long ago.
