Why did God create a sun that emitted harmful radiation?

I’m guessing that Bryan Fischer would say that it was to punish mankind for their sins, even through no one would have done anything wrong at the time he created the sun.

He knew (being omniscient and all) we were going to sin and was ready for us.

…even if Methuselah and everyone in his time had special genes that gave him the ability to live for over nine hundred years before the Great Flood…

My theory? Is that scripture (itself a transcript of what had previously been tales told round the campfire) was written in a language of limited vocabulary, translated again and again and again, and the word for “year” was only the tiniest inksmudge off from the word for “month”, maybe both of them were really “cycle” so

He lived for 969 — oh, I’m sorry, did you think I meant earth’s rotation around the sun, I meant to suggest waxing/waning and…

See, there’s your problem. You’re using science and logic again.

Thanks. Alouette

A bunch of other people were also amazed that he didn’t realize it wasn’t an endorsement


I also had to join in the fun. Who knows, he might learn something.

Most folks have zero understanding of science. Science and the technologies it’s spawned are magic, because many people have no clue how things work and have no desire to learn. This makes it easy to sell the argument that science and religion are equivalent, both based on faith. And that science is a false faith not based on a specific god.

The fact that science is evidence driven and yields results we use to create new technologies is simply ignored. The science deniers just happily use the technologies and take advantage of the advances made possible by science while calling the practitioners of science evil liars and false prophets.

Assuming a god exists, if I was interested in learning about how things were created, I’d study creation instead of a book written thousands of years ago. And when we do study our world and universe, an honest examination of the evidence demonstrates a process far different from the origin stories hucksters like Bryan Fischer are peddling.

If ignorance is bliss, why are the likes of Bryan Fischer such incredible assholes?

Sigh.

re: #9 A Cranky One

Ignorance is only bliss if its ignorance of something you wouldn’t want to know, and than ignorance is still not a good thing. Bryan Fischer is miserable becouse he doesn’t like the way the world works, and he wishes to impose his morality on others and he realizes that he’s not able to.
