rhocam ~ I guess there are several trillion cells in a man, and one in an amoeba, so to be generous, lets say that there were a billion. That is one every fifteen years. So in my lifetime I should have seen two evolutionary changes.

Thor is twice in the list and Polynesia is in the Pacific, not Africa. I'm just sayin'.

Wasn't Madagascar populated by the same ethnic group as the polynesians?

You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

I'm aware of this, but if it would mean the mythology of all Austronesian people then it would have been called 'Austronesian mythology'. 'Polynesian' specifically refers to island groups in the Pacific Ocean.

I'm ashamed to admit I can only speak/read one language, I take it that Þórr = Thor?

It was meant as a joke.  A not very funny joke that is immediately killed by the need to explain the joke.  ;)


Str8 mate ....check out the geographical region section titles.
Africa is there yes, but so is South Pacific (Polynesia).

I joked that unless you were completely misreading "South Pacific" as one of names of the listed deities, then Polynesia is separated from Africa by the title South Pacific.  Although the obviousness of the separation was not well served by my poor formatting. :)

Atheists are spectators in a grand battle of stupid ideas.  Sadly, these ideas get people killed in the name of a loving god on both sides of the delusion.
