    I understand that some people are fundamentalists and some aren't but you've got to be crazy to think that the book of Genesis is factual. I mean come on...the Catholics don't even believe in it anymore and they invented Christianity.

    Please, make a worthwhile post with some substance to it, something that can be debated over...like, say, examples supporting your thesis. This is a poorly executed flame; you look desperate for a fight, not intelligent discussion.

    Why? Because you say so? Because you don't see it as possible?

    OK simple examples of flaws in the book of Genesis.

    1. God allegedly created light before he created the light producing objects. Seems silly to me.
    2. God also created plantlife before creating the light producing objects. How would the process of photosynthesis take place without the sun?
    3. The story of Noah is easily one of the most absurd fallacious and/or exagerrated stories ever.


    It's just not a factual book. I'd love to have an 'intelligent' discussion on the matter but anyone who disagrees with me on this one probably isn't the brightest person in the world.

    So you're going to start a thread and ask for intelligent discussion, yet pre-judge anyone who disagrees with you as an idiot. Why even bother to start the thread in the first place then? You're killin' me here.

    I'm not prejudging anyone who wants to debate certain parts of it an idiot. But if you truly believe that everything in Genesis is 100% factual then you either have not read the book or you are very naive.

    Using this thread as a barometer, it's no wonder your views on religion are so negative. You load the questions and slant the debate before it's even begun.

    I dunno, a lot of what you bring up are issues that I'd be interested in people's opinions on, but you're so inflammatory that you squander any hope of productive discourse before it even begins.

    Well in that case maybe we can have this thread deleted and have a civil discussion about something else.

    I didn't intend this to be a negative flame war. I'm just trying to figure out how people believe in something that seems so illogical and impossible to me.
