That chart always cracks me up. I also enjoy busting the chops of anyone stupid enough to try to argue that the dark age was a result of the rise of Christianity/the idea each civilization is better than the last.

i like the cut of your jib. i don't know much about the dark ages, but do i agree with you that the idea civilization/society develops on a chronologically, positive linear path is silly. the same can be said for technology and science. things change for the better and for the worse. change isn't analogous to building a pyramid one layer of limestone slabs on top of another. advances in science and technology are often the result of accidents and not the grand unfurling of an idea. the ultimate question with positive linear development models is when do they end or can they end?

Watching The God Who Wasn't There on Netflix and it is a pretty interesting documentary.

Yeah, it's a real stimulating film. Right on par with a documentary I saw titled: "Behind the Scenes: The Making of Chipwrecked"

The fact that you would watch "Behind the Scenes: The Making of Chipwrecked" discredits anything you might say. Similar to throwing Discraft or only playing the short layout of a course.

He made one decent point in that the whack-job fundamentalist that most Christians would disavow as crazy are in a lot of cases more closely in keeping with what is actually in the Bible than mainstream Christianity. That's a pretty gross generalization, and you can argue in circles because the damn book contradicts itself in a lot of places, but I still though it was a decent point.

you do know that "man is but a worm" was a piece of satire created after the release of darwin's book the formation of vegetable mould through the action of worms, with observations on their habits? you do know what satire is?

I suppose someone will think I'm being serious in my last post so let me say this: The point that I am stressing is not one that says that everything came from worms, but the premise behind it. That is, of course, you think evolution is a satire of creation.

You wish, handsome.

Let me clarify. Vondrehle is trying to point out what appears to be silly in Christianity. I'm pointing out the alternative, which is also silly. The difference is that one is a caricature of stated theological beliefs while the other is an accurate portrayal of what people believe. In an ironic way, the satirical picture of Darwin's fascination with worms in an evolutionary way is close to what it actually seems to be, silly.
