************* M*W: I've been on sciforums for several years now, and no matter what you read, legitimately research, or post, the christians on this forum are not open to new or innovative ideas about their religion, and they only believe what has been fed to them by their leaders. That is a scary thought, if you ask me. I question why they don't even want to listen to what could be a possible revelation to them, but they shun all ideas of anything different than what they already know. What's amusing is that some of the christians on board make broad statements that have long been found to be untrue. Some of these statements include: Adam and Eve Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat The talking serpent The plural gods of Eden Giants of the Earth All the metaphors for Jesus Jesus's birth Jesus's life Jesus's death Jesus's resurrection All the witnesses who never saw Jesus ...and more. What I want to know is when does truth and reality clash with lies and fantasy? And, why can't christians see the fallacies of their beliefs? Christianity is not a forward moving religion. In fact, it seems from the posters here, it is going backwards to the days before scientific research existed or was kosher for it's believers to undertake such a feat. It just doesn't make sense to me that a scientific forum contains information from the Dark Ages. Surely the human race has progressed beyond that even where religion is concerned. A bigger concern I have is why are those people who are still living in the Dark Ages allowed to post their drivel in a modern scientific forum?
