Well, willfully ignorant to say the least. Yes this is a map of a flat(ish) Earth. Not done in the dark ages or a thousand years ago, or even before Magellan circumnavigated the globe. This was done in the 1890's buy guess what? A creationist! Now I know most creationists don't believe this, but if you click on the image you can actually read the text, and there is no doubt about it this is what some creationists thought the Earth according to the Bible was like. I posted this to illustrate a point, using the Bible or Koran or whatever sacred text you hold dear that tries to explain the natural world but has no real knowledge ofit, leads to bad thinking, this map was disproven even before it was made (like thousands of years before) but because the Bible says the Earth is Flat (I'm not entirely convinced by those passages) the Map Maker willfully ignored that and followed his 'heart'. There are STILL people today who think the Earth is flat... it would be funny if it weren't so sad.
Map from here! And do click on it, it's a beautiful map, right down to the scientists being flung off the spinning globe!
What else do we have this week, well it looks like a little girl took Ken Ham's advice and asked a tour guide at NASA:
The post is about what an actual scientist thinks is a better question... "How do you know?" Why ask that? Because you might actually learn something. I think EVERYONE needs to read the post.I went to a NASA display of a moon rock and a lady said, "This Moon-rock is 3.75 billion years old!" Guess what I asked for the first time ever?"Um, may I ask a question?"And she said, "Of course."I said, in my most polite voice, "Were you there?"Love, Emma B
But just to be a jerk (like I'm being accused at the Outhouse, Juggernaught Fanboy you suck as well!) creationists. Where you there when Jesus was born, Died? Where you there when Adam and Eve ate that fruit? Where you there when God 'created' the Earth? No of course not it's a stupid question in these cases, just like it's a stupid question to ask a human if they were alive 3 billion years ago, you already know the answer. But read the post and it WILL tell you how we know that rock is 3 billion years old.
And of course old Ken Hammy completely misses the point and has a shit fit. They are truly the gift that keeps on giving... if you like the crazy;)
And then lastly, I guess they found me! At a gathering of Texas exorcists, one of thinks they know the answer!
"Pfeifer said he believes there is demonic influence in West Texas manifested through cults…
I want a cult! It's easier to hate God if you have a cult... seriously;)
That better M.O.R.?
