another one of those christians that think we are on a planet is still young…….if the planet was 2012 years old then we all would just be one tiny cell……..the earth would also be covered in lava and the sky would be blackened. i hate it when a backwards small town hardcore bible thumper says the world is only 2000-3000 yrs old……….but we could use gas stations attendents
I am a Christian and I believe the world to be around 10,000 years old. Don’t flatter yourself Mordred. You sound like you work in the world’s work force yourself. All positions are needed. You should learn to capitalize and use less punctuation.
I got no problem with people believing whatever they want. Those beliefs may well be factually incorrect, but normally that doesn’t make a difference. It’s only when someone is in a position of power that they have to know the actual facts.
And it shows that the White Queen was right.
“There’s just no use in trying,” said Alice. “One *can’t* believe impossible things.”
“When I was your age,” said the White Queen, “I believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
[I may have the quote slightly off. It’s been a long time since I read the Alice books.]
So unless you’re a teacher, on the Board of Education or an elected official, Lyzzie, you go right on believing your impossible things [like the world being 10,000 years old.] It does no harm and it makes you happy.
Agreed, my opinion is my own, hence I said I believe. I love Alice in Wonderland! My only concern with his/her comment was the fact that the person in the picture was a useless object in our society. Everyone has their own beliefs no matter how wrong or right we see them to be. We should all respect each other.
Absolutely you should believe whatever you want, Lyzzie. I firmly believe that unicorns poop rainbows, Obi Wan Kenobi is Luke’s real father, and your bearded sky fairy wants you to send me some money.
All of those are exactly as real as your anti-intellectual goofiness.
(Seriously, though: Jesus Holy Christ Almighty really does want you to send me some money. He whispered it to me on his secret Jesus phone. He’ll give you flaming creationist herpes if you don’t. So really, you should send me some money. God said so.)
Regardless of the science, mordred is only showing his own prejudice in assuming that the poster believed the earth to only be 2012 years old.
It’s unlikely that her mistake was based upon a Christian belief given that Christians believe in a long line of people who lived before Christ was born. Few (if any) believe that Adam and Eve were created on one day, and that Christ was born within a year.
More likely she thought the the basis of our calendar years is not running from the birth of Christ, but rather running from the age of Earth itself.
