Guess who was right...

For many years, science said that the sun revolves around the Earth.

The Bible said that the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Guess who was right.

For many years, science said that there were only a few hundreds stars in the sky.

You say that you'll be fine.

Guess who is right.

You know, this post would be almost completely accurate... if you swapped the words 'science' and 'bible' for most of these lines.

And that's why the church banned anything that mentioned a heliocentric model and locked up Galileo, right?
....
Right?

History revisionism at it's best. Or worst. I don't know. Point is scientists for mellinium have no for years that the Earth was round and the Bible says the Earth is flat. It says it right in there. Read it!

For many years, common wisdom believed that the Earth was flat.
The Bible agreed and said that the Earth is a circle.

Great thinkers realized the truth and were suppressed by religion.

For many years, common wisdom said that the sun revolves around the Earth.
The Bible agreed and said that the Sun moved in the Sky.

I have to hand it to him. He's full of crap, but he's got a flair for the dramatic.

For many years, fundies said that it was okay to lie for Jesus.

The Bible said that all liars will go to hell.

Guess who was right.

Yep, it was pointing out the cosmological accuracy of the bible that made Galileo so popular!

Science says the human race is the product of millions of years of evolution.

The Bible says an omnipotent sky fairy spent six days creating humans as they are now, six thousand years ago. And snakes can talk.

Guess who's right.

(Hint: it's not you.)

God will gather up the people of Judea "from the four corners of the earth."

"The sun moves around the earth." (Proverbs 19:5)

The Bible says stars are small lights stuck in the firmament, that they can fall to earth, and that they can be "stamped" upon. (Daniel 8:10)

Revisionist history at it's best.

In a hundred years, this moron will say scientists were advocating creationism while the Bible demonstrated evolution.

What can you expect from someone who alters reality to fit his fancies?

Does this count as Tzeentch worship?

Being circular and round (as in sphereical)are not the same thing.
The scientists who made these claims were Christians influenced by the Bible.
And, being right on physical observations does not prove that it is right about its spiritual assertions in any way, shape, or form...

Nice try. Please, go crawl back into the fallout shelter you crawled out of....

@Fanatic-Templar: I don't know. The Thousand Sons have never claimed that they were always loyal servants of the Emperor and that the other chapters betrayed them.

"For many years, science believed that the Earth was flat."

Not since sometime around 240 B.C.E. or so. Of course, "science" didn't exactly exist much before then so you can't fault it for not establishing the spherical nature of the Earth.

"The Bible said that the Earth is round."

Not quite. Your Babble says the Earth is "circular". Circular describes a two dimensional shape, e.g. a disc, not a sphere. Your Babble lines up quite well with the ignorance that was prevalent at the time it was written.

"Guess who was right..."

A Greek by the name of Eratosthenes.

"For many years, science said that the sun revolves around the Earth"

Do you know why they said that? Because it upheld the opinion of the Church on the subject and contradicting the Church could be quite dangerous.

"The Bible said that the Earth revolves around the Sun."

Where? Cite the verse that says that.

"Guess who was right."

A Pole by the name of Copernicus. Granted, others had hypothesized it first but he proved it.

"For many years, science said that there were only a few hundreds stars in the sky."

Which was reasonable until the science of optics was invented.

"The Bible said that there were countless stars."

I'll let you have that one since I'm pretty sure it does say some such thing somewhere.

"Guess who was right."

An Italian by the name of Galileo who contributed important improvements to the telescope.

"You say that you'll be fine."

I say I'll be so-so.

"The Bible says that every man will face God and be judged."

It also says serpents and asses speak, a flood drowned every living thing on the planet (without leaving any evidence, of course) and that a corpse got up after three days, walked around a bit and then flew off into the sky. Your Bible is less than credible.

"Guess who is right."

So far it doesn't look good for your Bible.

So considering that science has been right, and the Bible wrong on each of those topics, what does that say for his final "cliffhanger, guess-who-is-right" point?

Who wants tell this moron that he's taking his proof that the Bible is "right" FROM science?

3/12/2008 2:21:50 AM

LOLKILLZ

When did science say that there were only a few hundred stars???

Oh, and read about Galileo, they tried to kill him because he disagreed with the Church, and said the Earth was not the center.

For many years, cavemen believed that the Earth was flat.

They wrote a magic book and said that the Earth was a circle.

The Greeks established the Earth was a sphere.

The cavemen beat them up and burnt their books.

Guess who was right?

The Bible said that there were countless stars.

Did it? It also said that stars were little twinkly things set in a solid shell that kept water from falling on our heads - most of the time and that 1/3 of them would fall to Earth when a magic Jew zombie had a fight with a seven headed 10 horned manifestation of fear anthropomorphicised as some guy called Satan.
