That's why we have archaeology and science to dispel the primitive mythologies. With luck, time a lot of work we might found out where we were 70,000 years ago before the population bottleneck.

If we take that attitude then everything from sports to music to philosophy to classic cars becomes a waste of money.
We have an awesome machine exploring Mars right now. Science put it there.
Science rules.
Just think how much money we could save if we went back to the dark ages - no cars, cellphones, cable bills, hospitals... just Christians bathing in purified contact with the Holy Spirit and stocks and dungeons for the rest of us.

Bathing was illegal back then. The christian cult said being nude, even alone, was a sin. Sorry defender but that is true

Right, sorry. I meant basking - with just a splash of baptismal water behind the ears and a swish of communion Lavoris.

Then why did God have have Isaiah preach naked for 3 years?

Isaiah 20:

2 At the same time spake the Lord by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

3 And the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;

4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

6 And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?

The Bible is historical. So yours is a story?? What does time have to do with it?? God is timeless.

HAHAHAHAHA That was funny, the bible is historical. So you worship this?
Rape of Female Captives (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)



"When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."


Once again God approves of forcible rape.



8) Rape and the Spoils of War (Judges 5:30 NAB)



They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils of dyed cloth as Sisera's spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil.(Judges 5:30 NAB)



9) Sex Slaves (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)



When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)



10) God Assists Rape and Plunder (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)



Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst. And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city.(Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)

The proof that the bible is fiction and there is no god, christians have to resort to threats of eternal damnation when confronted with unpleasant facts.

Hot damn, you're right! For just a billion more we could have put one of those bigassed suv's up there - one of those with a fish decal on the back just like I see crowding church parking lots!
are you sure you want to object to NASA projects and space exploration? or would it be better to oppose the unnecessary wars that cost so many lives, and waste far more money, and make more enemies for the US? don't take it for granted that this is not still an issue. it is not being discussed, but many of the Romney advisers are the warmongering neocons that were all hot for war in the Middle East - and had Iran on the agenda, and maybe Syria too, after they did their big successful maneuver in Iraq, as they expected. have they really learned their lesson?

You claim evolution is making claims it cannot support, yet you have shown zero examples. Now you make unsupported claims.
Now then moving right along... Let's meet some members of the Lazarus Taxon.... Coelacanth: Darwin's missing link fish! Thought to extinct 65 million years ago... Alive and well today and guess what?... No legs! No signs of evolution what so ever!!... The Laotian Rock Rat: 11.5 million years gone shows up alive and well... No signs of any mutation...wow... Gracilidris: These ants were thought to be extinct 15 million years ago... Found alive and well... No signs of evolving... There are plenty if examples of wild and plant life thought to be long gone only to be discovered and found to go though no changes over millions of years... Care to explain?

Who said Coelacanth had to have legs at 65 mya? The fish that came to land was
Tiktaalik about 375 mya. Coelacanth may be just a cousin of Tiktaalik. No need for distant cousin to have the same exact traits.

Some species need no changes to survive. Evolution does not claim anything you are disputing.
I doubt roaches have changed much either. Did they need to? Alligators have no changed much in hundreds of millions of years. They work well without change.

Since the bible claims heaven is above the earth, in the clouds, it did make the gap smaller because it did not see heaven, angels, or god
