What exactly is it that Lomu needs to defend? You're both being paranoid and it's weirdly comical.

I have to admit to having some doubts about Lomu, primarily because of his claimed inability to deal with a completely ridiculous article. My eyes were rolling into the back of my head about three sentences in.

But quite frankly, I don't have any problem with what a creationist would do with my honest response to the questions Lomu asked. Maybe the article will be improved to something more fun to rebut. On the other hand, I imagine that if I was a creationist trolling EvC, I would be quite pleased if I received a hostile, suspicious response to questions that I could assert were harmless. I could then complete my assignment by writing about the frothing paranoids I encountered when I asked simple questions.

Re: The Big Lie
You choose to believe the serpent; I choose to believe God. There's really nothing more to any of this than that.

The situation is a little more complicated than that. God confirmed that eating from the Tree of Knowledge had made man just like God and that if such a thing were followed up by eating from the Tree of Life, man would also be eternal. Apparently, the serpent's deception including, at least in part, telling the truth.
