What the Fundies are Saying

This site montiors christian fundamentalist chat rooms and compiles some of the really stupid things that are said. There is a lot of zeal out there to prove a particular point of view. It is said to see that this evangelistic zeal is keeping many christians from using common sense.

Note that I consider myself a Christian Fundamentalisit in a lot of areas, but these quotes made me laugh.

Here are some examples on the creation vs. evolution debate:

It is not known whether God created oil when he made the earth 6000 years ago, or whether oil and coal deposits were generated during Noah's flood 4000 years ago. It does not mattter. What does matter is if you don't believe that God created the earth 6000 years ago, you are going to Hell.

["When you or your family members go to the doctor, do you get antibiotics developed to treat drug-resistant bacteria, or do you insist that because evolution doesn't exist you should be just fine with the drugs from twenty years ago?"]
Frankly, I would never take an antibiotic; there are far safer and more effective treatments, but all that aside, nothing that you mention above has the slightest connection to evolution. You are propagandising by attempting to mix evolutionism with biochemistry.

On all such forums Creationists are outnumbered. This means the Atheists and Evolutionists can mostly control the direction of the discussion, and this direction is then always some scientific detail. They lead us onto the scientific terrain and slaughter us there. We can possibly not win against Atheists and Evolutionists with scientific arguments, but we can win with logic.

On a related note, I read today that there have been several UFO Sightings near Stephenville, Texas. Here is a quote from the article.
"People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times,"
