This level of delusion seems impossible

Reading this post, the level of delusion seems impossible:

My neighbor gave my 8-year-old toy dinosaurs…

I am a little shocked. She says she is a Christian, but the Bible doesn’t say anything about dinosaurs. Should I let him keep them, as long as he understands that dinosaurs aren’t real? Even the PBS shows that he watches talk about dinosaurs and evolution, and how the scientists found these “bones” but the Bible doesn’t say that God ever created them, and the earth is only 6,000 years old, not old enough to have “bones” that they say are MILLIONS of years old! I know that Satan tries to trick us in many ways, and this is one way that he tries to fool man into believing that there isn’t a God who created the universe. How can they be bones when they are made out of ROCKS? I told my son that dinosaurs are one of Satan’s many ways of tricking man, and he must talk to God before he plays with them. Am I handling this right? My first 3 were all girls, and I adopted boys, and lots of mothers tell me that boys are often attracted to these dinosaurs. So I don’t know what to do. Is this just harmless fantasy play for him, or should I be worried that he may go on to believe in things like evolution?

How can an adult living in a modern nation like the United States be this delusional? The post must be a prank. Then you learn about this:

The Creation Museum

The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.

The museum is an attempt to disprove the theory of evolution:

    Which is it? The first woman denies dinosaurs because they are not in the bible. The museum accepts dinosaurs (agrees with science) but says dinos lived with humans (ludicrous). Which is it Christians? Why not accept all the science and throw out the bible?

    People believe in goofy things, very goofy things and people like to play pranks. That’s why Poe’s law remains so accurate.

    How about this:
    I am a little shocked. Somebody told me to take a plane to go to visit my sister in LA, but the Bible doesn’t say anything about planes.
    I know that SATAN tries to trick us in many ways, including making us believe in planes, but to avoid risk, I will go to LA on donkey’s back. Before that, to avoid phones, about which Bible also do not say anything, and to avoid the risk of blasphemy, I will sent a messenger to my sister that I am coming about December 22.

    BE CAREFUL, PEOPLE! Nothing about aspirin in Bible!

    Bill Maher went to this museum in his documentary “Religulous”. When he introduced the curator and the curator started talking, all I could say was “Holy, F’ing. Shit. This country is doomed”.

    I have a crazy evangelical fundamentalist uncle — who, coincidently, used to be a homocide detective, then got “saved” and is now the biggest blowhard, conspiracy theorist and dumbass in the family — who now believes, based on what his pastor and god has revealed to him, that there was no rain on the planet until the flood of Noah. Sigh:(

    His list of insane, delusional ramblings would make great skits on SNL, and he’s none too happy when I tell him that.

    Amazing how when one “finds” god one loses one’s intelligence.

    Bill Maher? Haaaaahaaaaaaahaaaahaaa

    Do you guys desire any respect, well limited respect? The same Bill Maher who defends John Edwards adultery? The same Bill Maher who calls woman the vilest of names? This same Bill Maher who was fired from ABC after 9/11 for his comments about Americans.

    He is proof positive pot causes brain damage. They should keep this barbarian in the exhibit with the dinosaurs.

    I got another film idea for Maher. Its an action film to keep us from falling asleep. Take a camera and go and call these woman vile names with their husbands standing there. That would be worth paying for.

  9. on 25 Apr 2012 at 1:25 am 9.Godless Monkey said …

    Wow, Ben, can’t follow a topic very well, can you? Didn’t know this was now the God Hates Maher blog.

  10. on 25 Apr 2012 at 1:33 am 10.Godless Monkey said …

    And Ben, of course you would love to see Maher get an ass kicking ’cause one thing xtians love to watch is heretics get what’s coming to them, right? Xtians surely do delight in the blood and guts of the heathen — just the kind of movie they would think is worth paying for ;)

  11. on 25 Apr 2012 at 1:44 am 11.Ben said …

    GM

    Huh, so assume Bill would get a butt whooping GM? I never said that but you did. But why do you think this? Why would he make these comments about woman if he is so wrong? Isn’t he a wonderful enlightened Atheist GM?

    Explain yourself:) This should be good.

  12. on 25 Apr 2012 at 2:06 am 12.Godless Monkey said …

    Ben, how does your hatred of Bill Maher pertain to this topic? And one can infer by the comment, “with their husbands standing there” what you meant. I could be wrong, but doubt it.

    I will no more play the mind reader for Maher than I will for Limbaugh, who demeans all women, not just the ones who deserve to be called vile names :)

    But, once again, what has Maher, or any talk show host, have to do with the topic of delusion? Time to take your ritalin so you can stay on topic :)

  13. on 25 Apr 2012 at 2:33 am 13.DPK said …

    So Ben, tell us. Do you agree with the nut jobs of the creationist museum that humans and dinosaurs coexisted six thousand years ago and that the grand canyon was formed in a matter of days, after the great flood?

  14. on 25 Apr 2012 at 2:48 am 14.Godless Monkey said …

    Yeah, Ben, did Adam saddle up a T-Rex, grab his lovely lady and take her on a joyride through the garden of Eden? Woohoo!

    “Bill Maher? Haaaaahaaaaaaahaaaahaaa”

    Ben? Haaaaahaaaaaaahaaaahaaa

    WTF does it matter if Maher or Billy Graham introduced the curator and the curator started talking? Or does the curator intentionally say stupid things for Maher, but not for Graham?

    I wonder the same thing about you. Do you actually say the same stupid things that you post here to people to whom you are speaking face-to-face? Surely not, because it’s one thing to anonymously appear to be so stupid on the inet, but it’s an entirely different thing to do it in person with people who might know who you are.

    That T.Rex is wearing a saddle! Checkmate, atheists.

  17. on 25 Apr 2012 at 4:27 am 17.Godless Monkey said …

    Yes, the T-Rex had a saddle. And within that saddle God did place an illuminated holy map and guide book, guarded by the cheribrum, showing the whereabouts of every species of fauna on the planet; for in a very short period of time Noah would be instructed to gather such in preparation for God’s holy genocide.

    And God did create “Sheepherding for Dummies” on the sixth day, and God saw that it was good. Amen.

    “Ben, how does your hatred of Bill Maher pertain to this topic?”

    I dunno GM, need to ask Jay and Anonymouse about that one.

    But again, you OK with Maher demeaning numerous woman just because they don’t have the same beliefs as him? Well?

    I bet if he was a Christian or a member of the Republicans you would voice your opinion loudly. Could I be right?

    You brought up Limbaugh GM. What does HE have to do with this?

  19. on 25 Apr 2012 at 10:57 am 19.Ben said …

    “I will no more play the mind reader for Maher than I will for Limbaugh”

    Sure you do GM. You assume I hate Maher because he is a vile human being and you assume I want to see him get a butt whopping. Don’t stop now:)

    Show us which “numerous woman [sic]” that Maher demeaned “just because they don’t have the same beliefs as him? Well?” If you don’t, then that confirms that your lying again.

    “Sure you do GM. You assume I hate Maher because he is a vile human being and you assume I want to see him get a butt whopping [sic].”

    Once again, Ben must lie to defend his stupid comments. GM didn’t assume anything about you. What he wrote was deduced from what you wrote:

    8.Ben said …

    “I got another film idea for Maher. Its [sic] an action film to keep us from falling asleep. Take a camera and go and call these woman vile names with their husbands standing there. That would be worth paying for.”

    That obviously and intentionally means what GM wrote.

    Ben-Hor, pathological lying is a mental illness for which you should seek treatment.

    And so much, ladies and gents, for the superior and absolute christian moral code.

    Firstly, I am a she, not a he:)

    Ben, your powers of comprehension are totally lacking as you cannot stay on topic. Ritalin, dear sir, just might be the true saviour you’ve been seeking to help you with that ADHD, all sarcasm aside.

    Your comments as to Jay and Anon once again highlight your lack of comprehension as they were both ON TOPIC.

    Your shrill, whiney, victimized attitude is so hate-filled and exhausting. Chillax and have a drink. Jesus drank wine too ;)

    My mother in law, who is a 7th Day Adventist, denies vehemently that “Jesus drank wine”. I ask her what she is talking about, wine is everywhere in the bible? She claims… “in context” the “wine” they talk of was really non-fermented grape juice… and it was simply a mis-translation because everyone knows that drinking alcohol is contrary to god’s will.

    Believe me, they can rationalize away ANYTHING………..

    For sure, DPK. Oh, the stories we all could tell!

  28. on 29 Apr 2012 at 9:10 pm 28.Anne Onymous said …

    No; you’re wrong. God is most certainly real. If I told you my story, you’d tell me I was lying – and you’d be certain in your conviction. You cannot know and will not know God as your bias leads you by the nose into the blind abyss. Your motive in proving God doesn’t exist is born of ignorance and fear. You don’t know that, nor do you have the capability to understand. This in itself will anger you. You are most vulnerable as you know nothing as to why you exist. Live the paradox and proclaim your nothing. The proof that God exists is beyond your comprehension. Your pea brains are your limiting devices. Lead your pathetic lives in your scientific search of that which will only elude you. We poke fun at idiots too. And that would be you. Are we angry yet as we clamber to reply? Your point? You have none. What a pathetic lot.

    Yes, we christians do have brothers that ride in the short school bus. I admit this mess really don’t help our reputation. I think Bill Maher did a pretty good job in “Religulous” with Ken Ham, founder of AIG. I also don’t think young earth creation should be taught in schools.

    Really? Then where should it be taught?

    no where…

    “no where…”

    Then why dance around it? Simply say that creationism is nonsense, along with all the rest of wacky religious ideas – virgin birth, afterlife, gods…

    You seem to think that the wacky religious ideas that you believe are not nonsense, but they are just as nonsensical as young earth creationism or any other form of creationism.

    33. Lou

    Or just as crazy as information coming from non-information, aliens planting life on earth, consciousness from non-conscious…

    Yep… all religions require faith… you are just too blind as the rest of us to see the flaws in your own faith apparently…

  34. on 02 May 2012 at 7:02 pm 34.Doug Fo said …

    John;

    I have a belief that while I am asleep and there are no recording devices present that my shoes do not fly around the room. You might even call it I have faith in non-flying shoes.

    And if you do, so what? You are really really stretching the definition of belief and faith. The belief in non-flying shoes is not the equal to the belief shoes fly around the room while I am asleep. Both may be claims, for sure. However the claim, the claim that violates what we see and can test, is the one that has the burden of proof.

    Non, until I mentioned The flying shoe thing, you had no belief about flying shoes. You were Aflyingshoeists. After the claim about flying shoes you are still an Aflyingshoeist, but now one with a belief that flying shoes are a falsehood.

    Atheism is similar. The Atheism we had as a baby is very different than the atheism we have as adults. Adult Atheism is a belief that things operate as they appear without the need for gods If you belief that there is an invisible force making things operate differently, the burden of proof is on you. Many time through the ages of man has this been demostrated, Gravity being an excellent example. The burden of proof was on the claimant, and they met that burden of proof. Similarly many other such theories have come and gone, and those that have been proven have been added to the sum knowlege of man. Man seem to gain some currency, and when proof was not forthcoming, they were dropped and mostly forgotten, Ether theory for instance.

    So while you argue whether Atheism is truly a beleif by semantic games, it is just obsfucation.

    I tried that same approach before. They either don’t get it or they refuse to admit that everyone is born an atheist.
