    The ancient Etruscans had pasta made from flour and water 400-300 BC.

    David – you mean dinosaur bones are REAL? That means the earth is older than 10,000 years, as the Young Earth Creationists claim! It also means the BuyBull is NOT completely accurate. Gee, that means the Creationists can’t pass off their religious beliefs as some pseudo-science to school kids. Someone should stop them! Wait…our prophet Bobby (Pesto be upon him) did.

    Perhaps if you were smart enough to read and follow the directions that were clearly given to you when you entered our site, you would have had your questions answered. After reading the Open Letter and the “About” tab material, you could have learned:

    1) Our mission is the exclusion of religious mythology from the science curricula of public schools.

    2) Our theology is a satire that neither depends on, nor is derivative of any other religion.

    3) We insist that any school board that includes any religious mythology in their science curricula, must also include ours.

    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
    H. L. Mencken
    US editor (1880 – 1956

    Your rage demonstrates clearly that you are out of rational debating strategies. Why don’t you stay in school and learn science, math, and philosophy? It will make the world seem a much safer place than what you’ve heard from the pulpit. Start by studying this observation by astronomer Carl Sagan:

    “How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, ‘This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed’? Instead they say, ‘No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.’” – Carl Sagan

    “There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths. Almost inevitably some part of him is aware that they are myths and that he believes them only because they are comforting. But he dare not face this thought! Moreover, since he is aware, however dimly, that his opinions are not real, he becomes furious when they are disputed.” [Bertrand Russell, "Human Society in Ethics and Politics"]

    What’s repellent are self-styled prophets and priests (who are real) demanding that we follow their antiquated dogma.

    The attached talk by Dr Andy Thomson tells us how our needs as helpless infants uses the same parts of the brain as our thoughts about the mythology of religion:

    The fears and terrors of the unknown are powerful drivers in our need for superstition.

    I’m sorry that I forgot this note to you in my last post.

    I propose a new rule: from now on, anyone who worships a dude who spent His entire adult life hanging out with a dozen other guys, was known to be kissed by them and wash their feet, and is frequently portrayed in a nearly-nude S&M glamour shot, isn’t allowed to have a problem with gay people.
    Sound fair?

    Well, to be fair, there are many Christians, even here in Mississippi, that believe that by combining whatever verse it is that says that a day to God is an unknowable amount of time to humans with Genesis, then that negates the Earth having to have been formed in 7 days exactly. And though I have heard some people argue that “a day is a day”, I think that they are a bit confused because even I must admit, though I don’t believe what the Christians believe anymore, that it is possible that a day could be different (and even ever changing due to the universe’s expansion) to a being whose existence is throughout the universe, because a day to Earth is different radically to a day to Mercury, how much different would it be to a being who is everywhere?
    Still there are some easily punchable holes even in that because I don’t quite understand why a being who knows all would tell people that he did it in 7 days, meaning His days, knowing that they would most likely think He meant their days unless his intentions were to temporarily deceive until people learned better, which is a radically different god than what Christianity usually teaches.
    But hey you can hate on me for trying to defend the Christians just a bit if you want, I just enjoy the fun of playing the devil’s advocate. OR would it be the the Burrowing Gruel Demon’s advocate when speaking to you Pastafanarians?
    May you feast on the Tasteless Grey. Mwahahaha.

      Pintaheart, you brought up something I hadn’t heard or thought of before. Who says god created everything in 7 days? Sure, the buybull does, but that’s in the oldest part of the Old Testic..er, Testament. In other words, COMPLETE fairy tales from the Bronze Age. As far as I know, there’s no account of who god happened to mention this to, or in what context. Was he just hanging out one perfect day in Eden, and just happened to mention it to Adam and Eve, or what?

      As you mention, the concept of a 24 hour day is central to earth. So god’s clock is set to our little speck in the cosmos? Lucky us! Or was the game fixed, since ancient man had no friggin’ concept of other planets with different rotations, etc.? More proof that god was created by man, rather than vice versa. Except for the FSM (pesto be upon him) and the midgits.

    I love how David refers to Dinosaurs, If he knew anything about the existence of dinosaurs he would find out that they lived around 230 million years ago, hence erasing them from fact because if you believed in intelligent design you think the world is 10 thousand years old.

    • Keith says:

      Actually, I think he refers to “dinosors”, whatever they are. It is sad that such a short missive is fraught with so many errors. If we are talking of “dinosaurs”, as Brian thinks, they are still around. Instead of eating us they shit on our car and demand food when we sit on park benches.

        Keith,
        Dinosaurs are around but they FUEL our cars and turn our Gulfs of Mexico into a combustible slip and slide.

          I recently received through the post the Lindberg re-release of the old Pyro Plastics Brontosaurus kit. The kit also comes with a caveman figure. I daresay the creationists will have to include this in their list of “proofs” that dinosaurs coexisted with Man.

    Hey kid,
    Grow up.
