They Think They Know Science

it makes me so mad when funndys think they are so inteligent especialy about "origins".

 

i am real big into physics and biology and i my self read much over the subject so i cinsider my self well versed even though i still have so much to learn.

 

but recently i was sitting on the computer at the library reading a artical about "babtisma" the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs and this funndy who i am equanited too roles over beside me and ask what it is.

 

so i explain to him what it is but i dont directly say i suport it, but i explain what "they" (me included) think happend to the dinosaurs. his first stupid comment was when he asked "so they think it made the gulf of mexico?" and i responded politly no it was only 7 miles big.

 

he then gets this real snarky look on his face and says

 

"well their scientist what do you expect? obviously their going to belive in somthing stupid as that a 7 mile rock can kill all the dinosaurs."

 

i nearly exploded on him, i mean how is it that they can be so nieve to think they are so much smarter than scientist.

 

these men (scientist) devote their entire lives to studying this, they read more books in a week than most funndys do in a life time and they simply assume their idiots and dont know what their talking about.

 

the arrogance is just stiffiling and it somtimes i just cant stand it. it just makes me angry to think people are so brainwashed by their own pride and close mindedness.

Nothing has been so completely unfathomable to believers as evolution. True Believers will expound on all the failings of the theory without a clue. You just can't argue with stupid.

You live in Arkansas, any chance your friend hunts or knows anything about guns? Just ask him how is it possible that a bullet that weighs a quarter of an ounce can kill a person with ease. Here is a cool calculator you can show him. A meteor 1m wide would be equivalent to 144 tons of TNT. A 6 mile meteor could be equivalent to 144,114,330,000,000 tons of TNT.

It's not limited to fundies, I run into people who deny science as a regular part of their daily routine!

This.

 

I have a good friend who's a very clever girl, but also a strong Christian. One of the last conversations we ever had was back when I was a believer myself, and it went something like this:

 

Her: <Rant about how scientists are always working on conclusions that don't involve God in any way>

Me: Well, to be fair, that's what science IS. Trying to observe the world in ways beyond the standard "God did it!"

Her: Yes, but sometimes I think they go too far. <Continues along that track>

 

Another friend has a theory that all scientists are latent theists who don't want to admit it to their peers.

 

Of course, evolution is always a big topic, held in religious communities as "a theory". A lot of Christians take Genesis way too literally.

What gets me is when they claim that it's all some sort of conspiracy. As in that all these scientists had a big meeting somewhere and decided to craft a giant fraud upon the people in order to advance their socialist agenda.
