We Are Made of Dust… Star Dust

October 6, 2011

From Failbook:

I have to admit I got a pretty good laugh out of this, but it is sad that the Bill O’Reilly rhetoric gets played so often by Christians that have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. The more you demean someone, call them ‘dumb’ or some similar pejorative, then somehow the more ‘right’ your argument gets. Ignorance marries arrogance and breeds stupidity.

Just for fun, some actual scientists…

    This is why we have to keep fighting against mindless fundamentalism. I can’t imagine going through life with my worldview that constricted.

    I’d say that actually was O’Reilly posting, except I’m pretty sure he’s never had a chemistry class…

    I just remind these people that if god made everything then he also made science.. likely to explain how he did it. I mean if you believe in god it doesn’t actually preclude the possibility of things like evolution and the above. Perhaps that’s how he/she/it meant for it to happen. Hell the bible says god created the universe before he created us. He created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. By the two points of logic he had to make Adam out of something, and since he had a big wide universe full of stars spitting out raw materials maybe he said “That will do”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an agnostic.. but I find explaining it this way and then patting them on the head and walking away saves a lot of future frustration.
