Re: Old Earth views of some Christian leaders
The part you are missing is that interpretations can be, and often are, wrong. I can iterpret my wife to not be mad at me all I want, but that doesn't mean I don't have to sleep on the couch. I can interpret the moon to be made of cheese and it won't have any effect on me, allowing me to go on believing that it is, but that doesn't mean that the moon is actually made of cheese. I even have some moon cheese in my closet (at least that's what the guy that sold it to me told me it was).

If we continue this train of thought, there is no god since millions of atheists interpret the evidence to there not being a god. Do you still want to use this rationale?

Just because you choose to view data through a certain lense doesn't make it correct. Data and reality aren't protected like your faith is. Just because you are just as right in your interpretation of the bible as Catholic Scientist and Devilsadvocate are doesn't mean you can do the same with actual facts, data and reality.

Edited by hooah212002, : No reason given.


Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident. Your lives are measured in years and decades. You wither and die. We are eternal, the pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything.
