things people have said

it would be better to destroy every other book ever written, and just save the first three verses of Genesis

William Jennings Bryan

If Jennings was granted his wish, what would become of Paul? Of the talking donkey? Of the fall of man? Of the Abrahamic land grab and all those fancy stories told in the bible? Does it mean that only the first three verses are indisputable and the rest being noise?

If there is a contradiction between a definitive [Koranic] text and conjectural science, then the scientific theory is refuted

A speaker at the First International Conference on Scientific Miracles of the Koran and Sunnah

think about this for a moment. you are doing research and then you check your results against the Koran and they contradict the text of the Koran. You don’t even have to publish your findings. They are refuted for all time.

    I think that only 4 words should ever be saved:
    “Once upon a time.”

    On the first point: Typical book burning x-ian. Move along folks, nothing to see here… 😉

    On the Koran: How convenient. My book of fairy tales trumps (gad I despise that word) everything known to science. Typical fairy tale book literalist. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

    More of the same stupid as yesterday. You could beat these people with an encyclopedia (if you can find one!) and they wouldn’t get any smarter. 🙂
