A Decision: Creationism

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I have decided something. I have decided that nobody who claims to be a creationist really thinks they're right. The whole thing is an elaborate joke. A practical joke stretching across huge periods of time, drawn out so long that it's not really funny anymore.

Don't get suckered into it. Stop debating them. Just laugh politely and then ask, in an even tone, "Don't you think you've carried this quite far enough? It was funny the first few times I heard it, but it's starting to wear thin. I admire your ambition, but nobody can carry a joke this far- you've done well, but after a certain point, it just gets tasteless."
  • oh come now. Let them have their fun. Someday they'll realize the jokes on them.

    Besides, you're no stranger to tasteless jokes. "Which is really hard for two horses to do ..."
  • I am willing to believe in A creation... just not so much the one everyone thinks it is.

    I figure, everything came from somewhere. We just haven't figured out where yet. I'm betting it won't be anything near like the christian mythos.

    I'm also willing to believe that something out there has a sense of humor. :) even if its name is only 'chaos' or 'chance'.
    • Creationism, in specific, refers to anti-evolution young-earth nuts.

      I think the idea of a "creation", a "creation event" is misleading and confusing. The "Big Bang" is itself confusing nomenclature- nothing "banged" because there was nothing there. No time, no space, no matter. We can't talk about the cause of the Big Bang intelligently, because that implies a sequence of events- "A" happened, and the Big Bang was the result. Without a dimension of time, that's meaningless. It can't be described in any meaningful way.
