When fossil dinosaurs began to be dug up, the religious nutjobs of the day explained their demise was because they couldn't fit on Noah's Ark.

I don't think much has changed...


So basically this Noah bloke fucked up. Seeings as the design brief was an ark that could hold ALL the worlds animals.

I don't know if people were really religious nutjobs back then. It was standard belief and not as much was known about geology, archaeology, paleontology, biology, and stuff back then. It wasn't like these people were nutty outliers.

Now, however, given all we know, religious believers are, to paraphrase Romans 1:20, without excuse.

In oral traditions fire side stories were a story telling competition. Story telling was a profession so telling tall stories was in great demand. What probably started about a farmer saving his cattle by using a boat when the river flooded turned into the Noah story. For those people the concept of the "world" would be a very small place.

The gaying of the Church is perhaps the most diabolical attack the Devil has ever launched against the Catholic Faith.

First, there is the massive damage done to the Church: the thousands of victims, the hundreds of millions in payouts, the bankruptcy of dioceses, and the cratering of ecclesial credibility.

And yet, in our society is there a more sympathetic group than gays? Is there a more favored group? So sympathetic are they, so eager are we to cover their sins and cower before them, that when the long Lent came and more than 80 percent of the victims were young men, we were eager to claim these homosexual assaults weren’t homosexual at all but pedophile, which we were quickly told has nothing to do with homosexuality.

Then consider that in order for the Church to regain her moral authority, in order to fight this terrible scourge, made even worse by recent revelations, the Church must turn on this most favored group and receive even more hatred and scorn for it.

Fucking cowards, not only hiding behind their religion but also conflating pedophelia with homosexuality. :yuk:
