If Christians are so eager to put their bible up to science as proof of their theory, then I say it is science's duty to go into the bible and prove and disprove anything it can.

Hey, I'm all for anything that calls the bible and religious beliefs into question, but it seems silly to me for scientists to waste time debunking biblical myths.

The bible deals with the supernatural. Science deals with the natural. Science can disprove biblical episodes and religious beliefs only on rational grounds. But the supernatural, by definition, defies rationality, so science is impotent to disprove any of it.

You don't hang around with enough Southern Baptists, Berberry.

Good god! How did I ever forget about them?

Well, to be sure I don't hang around with them; I avoid them like the plague. But they're all over the place here. However, they don't condemn catholics the way they used to. I suppose they think they need them to help spread more hate against gays, but for whatever reason they seem to be much more friendly toward them than they used to be. Look at the way they've gotten themselves so worked up over The Da Vinci Code, which - if it is to be regarded as an attack on anyone - is much more an attack on catholics than it is on evangelical fundies.

And yes this is off-topic, I agree. But I couldn't let that comment go without correcting myself, since so many of my posts on this forum have dealt with the predominance of southern baptists and other fundies here in Mississippi.
