Re: Arguing just for the sake of arguing here...
i agree.
it seems to be a big problem in this thread that people can't seem to separate creationism from christianity or judaism. if you're discussing specific creation, that's very separate from the rest of the stupid book. and creationism isn't a moral system. it's a tale about how everything came to be and that's all.

one can assume from the story that humans are special and that they all have souls and their deaths should only come when there is no other option (violent or health-wise).

the story of cain is not part of creationism. neither is the exodus, or the story of lot, or of benjamin, or of any other story in the book. it's only about the contents of "in the beginning" to the creation of man (or the creation of the garden, depending on which chapter you're reading). period. once he starts talking about trees and promises and snakes, it's a different story.

Re: holding racism back...
Except for that group over there. And those ones. And those ones there. And them too. Kill them all. But don't kill each other - just the children of bastards and perverts and idolaters and...

that's not part of the creation story.

It is the myth of the creation of languages and cultures that are different from each other. It is a creation myth, and its right there in Genesis 11.

oh that's a crap argument. you should know better. it says he mangle the language, not created them. and the cultures developed on their own after that. silly mod. come on.

Re: A schitzophrenic theory: the evolution of a lie
the theory of evolution itself seems to deliberately evolve with the spirit of the times.

martin luter became notoriously antisemitic later in his career. should we thus assume that christianity is predisposed or even designed to be antisemitic?

Re: A schitzophrenic theory: the evolution of a lie
What you have emboldened further supports what I have been saying. Early proponents of evolution have viewed the process in linear terms. The surely was this sense of less evolved/more evolved as it relates to organisms. Where is the objection? Are you honestly going to deny that?

congratulations. we used to not know as much as we do now. amazing. now we know more and we're not making quite as many stupid assumptions, and the theories are less liable to being misapplied.

why is this really an issue at all?
