    Confused God or the big bang?

    I have a hard time believing the big bang theory, especially when I saw a Monark butterfly hatch out of it's crystal and fly away. How is that possible with 2 asteroid hitting each other?

    Did you not ever see the Video where there was a Beached Whale and some very intelligent person in charge decided that if they Blew It Up it would just go away. Kinda like the Big Bang Theory in Reverse? Know what happened? Chunks of Mr Whale went in every direction... it was a Big(ger) Nasty Mess. Here's Your Big Bang Theory

    I do my best to stay out of ARP but I couldn't help myself. Now, can someone explain that Big Bang theory again, I just can't believe any of it.
    Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

    I can buy into a big bang theory. Since God obviously used evolution in His Creation of the physical universe, why should we shy from thinking that God Created what we think of as the Big Bang to get things started?

    5000 years ago, GOD created a universe that LOOKED like it was 5 billion years old!?!?!

    I'm sure God made all those billions of planets as practice....

    Seems like a lot of work just to have people worship and praise your name..
    But, alas, things could have been paradise if not for the deceptive Satan...

    I have no idea where you get these ideas from, but I for one am not even going to suppose that I have any clue as to why God did the things the way they were done. Looks to me like there is a lot more of God's Creation out there that we have no clue of.

    Well, that would certainly explain the fundy mind.

    Most churches allow for the big bang theory. They would just say that was the method God used.
    "War is cruelty,and you cannot refine it." Sherman to the leadership of Atlanta prior to burning the city.

    "Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen."
    Albert Einstein

    Romney campaign: "We're not going to let our campaign be ruled by fact-checkers,"

    Lindsey Graham: “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    This would be the most logically sound way of thinking of it.

    A singularity underwent rapid expansion......next thing you know......... Homo sapiens.


    Unfortunately, conservlicans were also created as a result of this process.


    Fortunately for the cool folks, due to a self-inflicted disease, the few particles that make up what is laughingly referred to as the "Conservlican "Brain" are unable to efficiently process O2 leading to diminished cognitive function and ultimately extinction.


    Of course, the Darwinian version would have these unfortunates pass through a terminal "teabagger" stage.

    Here is a much more believable theory;

    For those who don't know a lot about history ... Here is a condensed version:

    Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

    The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

    1 . Liberals
    2. Conservatives.

    Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

    Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement...

    Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and making art. This was the beginning of the Liberal Movement.

    Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievemntsinclude the domestication of the cat, invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting, to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provide.


    Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.

    Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare..



    Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have highertestosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywoodand group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

    Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Budor Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

    Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

    Here ends today's lesson in world history:

    It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.

    A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.


    And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.....I'm going to have another beer
