"The objects that did the bombardment came from one event that threw vast quantities of water, rock and mud into space. That event was the Great Flood. That’s why the water is salty."
Oh no more, please Mr. Wilde, I am bereft of ribs! I didn't know the UAC had temporal technology as well as teleportational. So there was aspects of the "DOOM" games we gamers weren't told about? Damn you, id Software! I'd have loved to played maps (via WADs) in which one had to travel back in time to Noah's era, take him & his family out with my BFG, then use one of the UAC's temporal/teleportational devices to send all the 'Flood' water to Mars via the teleporter on Phobos, to drown all those Imps, Demons, Cacodemons, Cyberdemons, Arachnotrons etc on Mars. John Carmack & co., you've missed a trick - and a potential opportunity - here!
The Bible doesn't mention Mars. Nor any other planet. Or any other solar system. Or any other galaxy. Or any other universe. Or any other dimension in our space-time continuum. Indeed, according to the Bible, the Earth is flat, supported by columns, with a solid dome or 'Firmament' above it, with lights in it.
...meanwhile, humanity, and it's quest for knowledge via science has proven otherwise, getting it right every time (the ancient Greeks - as in pre-Biblical - were able to figure out that the world was spherical way before those Bronze Age goatfuckers with ideas above their stations thought they came up with their unjustifiable bullshit called the Bible, and thought they had the right to claim it was fact without anything to back up it's claims, i.e. evidence).
The juggernaut that is scientific discovery rolls inexorably on, bringing more and more facts - backed up by hard, solid, physical evidence - to those who want to know.
Meanwhile, fundies such as you and Terry Hurtbutt here keep moving those goalposts, in that river in Egypt, to try and justify your ever-failing religious 'beliefs'. The Soviet Kosmos & US Viking, Mariner, Sojourner, Spirit & Opportunity probes just keep proving the Bible wrong, damn their sensors! [/sarcasm] But then, Sputnik-1 in 1957, at a stroke completely annihilated the Bible's model of the universe; and all via Atheist Soviet science, no less. So it wasn't just the thought of the USSR's potential militarisation of space that made America shit itself at that time. Good.
Not many gaps left. Three letters: L. H. C.
"@His4Life: Almost every world culture has a Cinderella story, but I don't see anyone using that to argue for Cinderella's authenticity."
Troll4Life had better not watch the TV miniseries "The Martian Chronicles"* or the Arnold Schwarzenegger film "Total Recall" then, if she knows what's good for her. The scenes in the latter, with the ancient Martian Terbinium reactor, are not a documentary, dearie. [/hyper-sarcasm]
*- Rock Hudson was damn good in that!
