Fired for not believing in Creationism
« on: May 11, 2014, 01:19:01 PM »
Bryan College losing nearly 25% of faculty after 'Adam and Eve' controversy

Quote

The dispute at Bryan College, named for William Jennings Bryan, began in February when trustees clarified the school's statement of belief to state that Adam and Eve were historical people who were not created from previously existing life forms.

Since then, the conflict has escalated with a majority of professors voting "no confidence" in the school's president, and students and alumni penning petitions in response to the controversy.

John 14:2 :: In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Um...wasn't Eve created from Adam which is a "preexisting life form"?

I may believe people, as a whole, should be treated fairly but I also believe those same people are idiots.

Well, um... She was created from his rib! See! Not from Adam himself! You're just angry at God, so you wouldn't understand!

But the rib was inside Adam before Biblegod removed it, no? So, are they saying Adam wasn't a life form, preexisting?
