I''ve got a fairy tail for you. Millions and billions of years ago, lots of stuff magically came together and then it magically exploded! Millions and billions of years later the stuff turned into rocks, and then more millions and billions of years later, humans magically came into being.



Every time people spout this crap it pisses me off. Why don''t you study some biology?

Say that you don''t believe in celebrating the day of Jesus'' crucifixion. That is what easter''s about isn''t it?


Why would anyone celebrate this? Easter is the celebration of Jesus'' reincarnation. Christians haven''t been devoting themselves to a faith for 2000 years that celebrates his death...

Thanks for proving my point. See how ignorant and closed minded you are?

When you wake up (woke up.. bah) on Easter morning, let out a blood-curdling scream and throw yourself on the floor, then make sure you''re rolling around clawing at your face when your parents come in to see what''s going on.

Pity I missed it.

Nice point. I''m very closed-minded - I don''t even believe in fairies.

Why don't you tell them you will start attending church when the priest can explain all of these to you? You can also work on your mom with all of the sexist passages in the Bible (always great for pissing the women off). If your parents fall on the socially liberal side, don't forget the kill the homosexuals passages. And lets not forget all the blood thirst war mongering in the Old Testament. Just complain that you read the Bible and are horrified by its contents and can't possible embrace such a religion.

You really should read the Bible; its quite entertaining. Its my favorite piece of fiction.

Actually church was meant to be... well not quite "entertaining" but definitely a place you'd enjoy going to. Back in medieval days the church was a sanctuary. Life was pretty awful in Europe but the church was big and seemed very safe and the hymns and things were inspirational. Basically it was very important for psychological health for most people... much more so than today, I mean.

Myself, I'm an atheist, though I have been to church 2 or 3 times with my parents when I was younger (for the experience -- they're agnostic). It is very boring but be glad you don't have to go every week

Evolution says we are decendants of dirt too


LOL! Russell, you clearly know absolutely nothing about evolution. Dirt is created when organic matter decomposes. This has nothing to do with evolution. You should take a class in biology and maybe learn something.

Evolution does NOT explain how life began. OK? No one has the slightest idea how that happened -- there's just a bunch of theories with no real evidence either way. Evolution merely explains how simpler lifeforms became complex lifeforms. Evolution happens all the time -- the simpler the lifeform, the faster it happens. A virus can evolve in one day.

Actually most of those are explained on the site that you linked to, wether or not you believe the explanations is another issue.
