Skepticism, Medicine and Science News

Answers (or not)

Nothing really spectacular in the news right now, so I thought I’d give you all a treat in the form of some especially ludicrous quotes from the answers in genesis web site (and I swear, I’m not making this up): 

Time and time again I have found that in both Christian and secular worlds, those of us who are involved in the creation movement are characterized as ‘young Earthers.’[…] I want to make it VERY clear that we don’t want to be known primarily as ‘young-Earth creationists.’ AiG’s main thrust is NOT ‘young Earth’ as such; our emphasis is on Biblical authority. Believing in a relatively ‘young Earth’ (i.e., only a few thousands of years old, which we accept) is a consequence of accepting the authority of the Word of God as an infallible revelation from our omniscient Creator.

So….what are you saying exactly? 

If there were Vulcans or Klingons out there, how would they be saved? They are not blood relatives of Jesus, and so Christ’s shed blood cannot pay for their sin.

Aww, the poor Klingons, what did they ever do to hurt anybody?

Jesus is now and forever both God and man; but He is not an alien.

Sure glad that’s been resolved. 

In an evolving universe, life should have developed everywhere. Space should be filled with radio signals from intelligent life forms. Where is everybody?

Everybody is stuck on their individual planets because some of the aliens decided science was bad and that they all should worship the flying spaghetti monster instead, thus preventing the creation of radio wave-emitting devices.
