why christianity is for inbreeders:

according to genesis, adam + eve = cain, abel, seth...

so, we have four males and one female, all directly related.  :wink:

Christianity isn't for inbreeders. Fundamentalist christianity is. Fundamentalism straight makes no sense, and it's impossible to explain reality to these people. They're frustrating. I think christianity is an allright religion as far as religions go, but fudamentalism is outright laughable.

I did an essay on the creation story for my A-level RS. Did you know that all of the original fundamentalists that founded The Fundamentals in 1905 (i think) didn't take the creation story literally like many do today? Most saw the days as epochs etc. This goes back to thinkers like Augustine too who thought a literal interpretation was idiocy. Its only in the past 50 years, roughly, that people on a large scale have chosen to adopt this idiocy :P

i would have to disagree with you here. the idea of christian fundementalist religion is much much older than 50 years. calvinists, anabaptists, mennonites, hutterites, puritans, shakers, quakers and the salvation army are all fundementalist (plus a bunch of others that slip my mind). fundementalism is the direct result of the reformation and counter-reformation. in fact the reformation was a return to fundemental christian religion. that was really the whole point of the reformation anyway.
it is only in the last 150 years or so that we've had things like the 7th day adventists and snake handlers and the 'typical' bible thumping fundy trying to repeal the teaching of evolutionary theory in public schools. the modern fundementalist movement, though, is no where near as puritanical as say the puritans.

you'll notice i didn't say that the fundamentalist movement is only 50 years old. but its modern incarnation which takes every word completely literally is.

why banging away @ Xtians???

do not the jews (& also muslims) also go along with much of the genesis creation myth as well?

although, within each of the 3 abrahamic traditions (judasim, christianity, islam) there are many (a majority? one wonders) who do not insist on a literalist interpretaion of the holy scriptures of their faith...

I have spoken to a number of jews who insist that the modern attempt to take the Old Testament literally is incorrect.

Muslims believe that the Old Testament, while holy, has been corrupted through thousands of years. Only the Qoran is the true word of God.

Although I'm sure there are fringe groups in each that take the OT literally. And until recently, literalists in the Christian faith were also fringe.

which is why i pointed out the the reformation fundys took the bible far more literally than our modern fundys. the 'the bible is actually word of god' protestant fundementalism is far, far older than 50 years. i would think that coming from the uk you would know this. do you think cromwell found profound metaphors and allusions in the bible or do you think he was it as god's own truth? the apocalypse was supposed to destroy the world in 1666. some 65% of the population of england at the time believed this with a certainty that would astound us. the modern literal fundy movement is only the latest incarnation of literal fundy movement that extends back to the formation of the canon, and the deuteronomists. it is no more popular now than at any other time and you will always find literalist sects of judeo-christianity/islam no matter how far back in time you go. they have always been a strong and loud spoken part of monotheism even to the point of having a little thing called the inquisition created to suppress them when they got out of hand.
i am surprised that more people don't see the modern fundys as the fruit of about 3000 years of fundementalism.

Until you can provide evidence, I will have to disagree. Although I'm not familiar with the 1666 belief, how does believing in the apocalypse suggest strict fundamentalism? Even conservative and liberal christians to some extent believe in an apocalypse.

Concerning Jews and Muslims, there is really has been very little recorded fundamentalism (i.e. strict literal interpretation of the Old Testament) on a large scale through both of their histories and if you can prove otherwise, please do.

Concerning Christians, however, the Catholic Church never endorsed literal fundamentalism. Today, indeed, the church accepts theistic evolution to some extent. Officially at least. There is a crucial difference between Fundamentalism which deems the Bible the direct word of God and the modern mass-movement that says that because of this, every sentence must be treated literally without concern for contextual factors etc.

Oh, and btw, coming from the UK, I know this  :tongue:

They believe that when you die your soul gets stuck on the roof and you can't get it down. It is a type of literal fundementalism.

According to science and biology all life on earth stems sprang forth off trailerpark populated by the offspring of one single-cell organism who's DNA in mutated shapes is present in all things living on the good Earth.

So even science agrees we all (even the mushrooms we eat) sprang forth from the Inbred County trailerpark in the Pre-Cambrium era.

Please notice that Genesis (the bible, not the band) says Eve sprang forth from the body of Adam while Biology says the second organism formed from the first by cell division. (insanely interesting stuff really, except in the way I tell it :evil:)

Quote:

So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh

Genesis 2-21




Surgeons like this one, because it actually speaks of a proper surgery with application of anaesthesia (an non-detrimental unconscious sleep unrousable by being operated upon equals textbook third-level surgical anaesthesia), which makes the core foundation of Christianity directly contradict that modern medicine is in violation of God's will as some fundamentalists claim.

Well: let those righteous ones be free of any medical interventions whatsoever :thumbdown: Innocent kids die because their religiously insane parents refuse to take them to a doctor. :frown:
