I live near the one in Kentucky that that cult built. They also have a "museum" and it seems like it's going to be funny but you see people with large groups of kids there learning how we used to ride dinosaurs into battle. It's really sad when you think about it

Religion promotes lazy thinking that creates people like Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

I am completely against all religions. But I think is mostly an american problem, because I was raised catholic and attended a catholic school in the EU and we were taught evolution, and proper science and history.


wish1977 t1_j9kpg7n wrote

Catholics believe in evolution too but they also believe in Noah's Ark and as long you believe the unbelievable that's lazy thinking. All these crazy bible stories should be questioned instead of being accepted like they're a fact. This is the same way Trump's voters accepted his lies like they were the gospel. It's scary because it's very similar thinking in both cases.

me too, EU and Catholic school, as a kid I've always wondered why they told us two different stories, and why the religion teachers were not ashamed of them selves, didn't they know we were learning actual science? this way very soon you learn to lie to everyone.

edit: every effin time I think about that, Orwellian double thinking pops out in my head.

These are evangelical Christians. They do not worship the same Jesus as you were raised to worship. They believe in prosperity gospel and they hate catholics.

The catholic church in the us is hateful, abusive, and corrupt to be sure.

It's not really a mostly American problem when there are women being beaten for not wearing head wraps.

As kid I lived in a residential area of Southern california, and in the neighborhood there was a house, with a tall-fenced backyard, but large enough to easily be seen over the fence was a huge concrete boat, that must have been built in that backyard. It was there for the entire 19 years I lived there.

Jokes on him. God isn’t using a flood this time around he is using greed.

Nice boat though. Oligarchs get yachts. Apostles get arks apparently.

Great point. The rainbow is gods sign of his promise never to destroy the earth with floods. Gays use the rainbow. Christians hate gays and destroy the rainbow with Jewish space lasers. God floods the planet. Christians survive with ark. 4d chess

Well, a CGI version of this ark did encounter a flood, caused by a greedy politician who cut corners in dam construction.

I'd love an explanation how thousands upon thousands of animals, many who want to eat each other, can fit.


Tenalp t1_j9obsml wrote

Growing up in a church that had a little more critical thinking skills (at the time), it was explained that they only needed a pair of each animal's common ancestor. Such as, they didn't need a pair of every feline, just a pair of felines, and genetic diversity and mutation would lead to the many species that we have today.

Not a ton better, but it helps that they put some level of thought into it, I guess.

Pretty sure most of the animals in this ark were CGI, or filmed on a green screen.

Surprised it’s not from the set of Evan Almighty when Evan Baxter (Steve Carrell) literally builds an ark

Does not at all resemble the ark described in the Bible.
