The bible was not written to be a scientific textbook, or even a literal history textbook, and I agree with papajon0s1 when he says to argue that it is does it a great disservice.

Patchouly said "It's always funny when you pit logic, reason and facts against fairy tales, ignorance and unwarranted blind faith." Problem is the divide is so great in the US that no one even agrees on what the facts are or are not. As a devout Catholic, I cringe when I see things like this. Most Catholics do not take the Bible as a history book. It does it a great disservice. And the argument "God wills it!" is so shallow when used in this context. If I feel pulled towards a certain career or to fall in love with a certain someone, then hey, if you think "God wills it" then more power to you. But to argue repeatable science with that is simplistic and sad and I don`t think very Holy at all. There is still plenty of room for faith where science has not taken us yet.

patchouly-" This, coming from a group that had their ability to formulate their own thoughts, scooped out with a large melon baller and replaced with pre-written dialog and brainwashing." This, coming from an individual who has already demonstrated that you have no idea what 'libertarian`, `tea party` and `liberal` means and who gets such definitions from liberal slander, is pretty damn funny.
