SomethingAwful.com is not exactly what you could call a high brow, intellectual site – but then, it’s not meant to be. They also have a wonderful habit of pointing out some truly idiotic websites that we can all point at and laugh. Thanks to the SA crew, I found my way to God Said Man Said … and I haven’t been able to stop laughing yet.
The people behind the website in question must truly be idiots, there’s no other way to succintly label their range of beliefs. It would seem to me that this website indicates that they’re the sort of people that believe in … well, what do they believe in? Let’s grab some random statements from the website and disprove them.
Much conversation has been bantered about concerning what God has to say about homosexuality. The Word of God is very clear about the cause, the punishment and the solution for homosexuality. GOD SAID homosexual activity is an abomination
The Bible does say that, more or less (some messing up with the translation may have occurred). But as a wonderful scene from the West Wing points out, the Bible also has a lot of other rules that we, possessing modern rational beliefs, have thrown out the proverbial window because they’re a load of horsesh*t.
Therefore, if you’re one of these whacko fundamentalists that think that homosexuality is wrong then I expect you to be out there hassling farmers about their crops and stoning women for their fashion choices. You can’t pick and choose what biblical passages you follow, you have to choose if the bible is 100% correct or bits of it are irrational.
This question is carried further in the minds of men. Speculation abounds and vast resources are committed to establishing whether there is life in outer space. To evolutionists, it is the unholy grail…a type of missing link. If they find life in outer space, their false assumption is that it will prove the theory of evolution.
Huh? What? What in the name of Elvis’ Spleen does the theory of evolution (which has already been proven as much as any scientific theory can) have to do with the possible existence extra-terrestial life? There is no link there at all. We could be visited tomorrow by an armada of green skinned, pink eyed, stoned college attending aliens and it would not affect evolutionary thinking at all. Scientists would instead go ‘Hey, look; Aliens! We shall speak with them and learn from them (and maybe catch one and dissect it while no one is looking!)’. Statements like the one above really demonstrate how ignorant some people are, it’s simply amazing.
The Bible clearly teaches the earth to be approximately 6,000 years old. Conversely, evolutionists claim years into billions.
Yes, billions. It’s a rather big number and I dare say the site authors reject it because they have trouble with the concept of numbers bigger than the amounts of their inbred kin. Of course, the age of the Earth is pretty much undebatable by anyone who has more sense than that of your average garden variety rock. How do we know the age of it? All sorts of things, starting with carbon dating, fossil records, historical records, archaelogical records, geological records and sheer common sense.
Ancient secular history goes back about 5,500 years and the trail grows ice cold. The reason the trail grows ice cold is simply because there isn’t much more history beyond it.
Huh? What bodily orifice did they pull that one out from? We’re pretty sure that the first people crossed over into Australia about 40,000 years ago (testing the age of paintings made by the earliest of Aboriginal settlers is a very easy thing to do and very accurate), we know humans have been walking the Earth for at least 100,000 years (thanks to fossil records) while we have all sorts of evidence about ancient civilisations which justify each and every one of the historical beliefs held by science today.
Remember the need for witnesses in order to certify truth. Collaborated historical record is witness of the past.
Witnesses certify truth? What? You don’t need witnesses, you need evidence. For example, there are no witnesses that can tell us that J Edgar Hoover liked to have … individual wardrobe choices available. Yet we know he did because there is evidence to support such a theory. There are no witnesses today that can tell us how the Pyramids were constructed, yet we have a pretty good idea how there were because of … you guessed it … evidence.
Being that credible recorded history, which is proof of the past, does not exceed 6,000 years, it is impossible to prove the earth older than 6,000 years.
And the United States allows people like this vote and breed? This statement, just by itself, demonstrates the unbelievable stupidity and ignorance of the people behind GodSaidManSaid.
I could go on and on, reading the website simply makes me travel the emotional spectrum from disbelief (of the mass amount of stupidity), wonder (at how anyone can be that ignorant) and joy (Oh, how I laughed! My sides hurt!). Just go read it for yourselves, just don’t be drinking anything you don’t want coming out of your nose.
I wonder what their response would be when it can be stated that the Bible is completely historically inaccurate (no evidence at all for pretty much anything in the OT, while supposed witness accounts for much of the NT is laughable) while historical records for supposed lynchpin stories such as the global flood and the exodus from Egypt pretty much disprove any such events ever took place.
