Well, knowing whether a supernatural being exists and knowing about the world are two very different things. If God exists then they would have still known it back then some way or another because he didn't just come from nowhere, did he? It's not a very strong argument to say that they were not qualified to make judgements just because of their lack of technological advancement. In that case unless you know everything about science you can't make any theological judgement whatsoever.

well, when you consider what awful things religion has done to homosexuals, you can probably see where this is coming from?

In fact, I'll say I joined this community because of it's overwhelming optimism and hopefulness. I am disappointed to see such bitterness here right now.

@Kira, also, none of those give merit to knowing anything about the supernatural. @chelsea Its ironic that you bash on scientology when christian faiths believe that their saviour was a glorified magician, and they will go some place in the sky when they die, as well as believing in mythical creatures, and that a man who was over 100 years old could build a boat large enough to fit all creatures in only a month. to me, believing in aliens does not seem too farfetched when you compare it to chrisitan faiths.

We build on the knowledge of our ancestors. We didn't just up and invent computers one day. It was thousands of years of development that led us to where we are today.
And seriously, if it was that bad, we should have gone extinct long ago. Some people drive me nuts with their permanent "everything sucks" mentality. Yeah, some things are bad. But a lot of things are great. You don't have to ignore the positive in order to want to improve the negative.
Not everything is horrible.

i believe that God IS the hope i find within myself. among other things. i'm NOT religious, i don't "belong" to a religion. and while i agree that religion can do some messed up things, people tend to use religion as an excuse for their acts of hate. it's not religion, it's the way people use it.
and as for the PETA argument, my point is: their extreme, attention getting methods often end up earning them a reputation for being- well, extremists. they get thrown into the same bin as Scientology (you know, the alien worshipers). so instead of someone actually receiving the message, they just say, "what a bunch of nuts!" and move on.

Knowing the basics of survival does not give merit to knowing the supernatural. Cave men knew how to survive. the point is moot.

The Bible and all religious documents were written thousands of years ago, at a time where the people who lived did not know where the sun went at the end of the day. These people knew nothing about the world they lived in, so how could they know anything about anything else?
Comment by Ken Crandall on August 28, 2009 at 1:17pm
As a Christian I don't take the Bible literally. And despite what you may think, most modern Christians - at least in the US - don't either. We see it as a collection of stories that teach lessons.
Many people are also able to sort through the distortions which are products of the times they were written during and the revisions that were made during translations and copying.
Religion can be a set of guidelines and moral teachings that help people to live charitable, productive lives. It can also be an excuse to kill somebody different from you. Just like a hammer can be used to build a house or bash somebody's brain in. It's how you use it that matters.

Hope not hate, guys. Hating religious people isn't going to solve anything. No form of hate, however justified it may seem to you, is going to get anyone anywhere. Try to understand others point of view instead of immediately judging them based on a few pre-conceived conceptions.
