I have some TBM relatives who recently visited that Noah's Ark park in Kentucky. When I asked them how the kangaroos got home after the Ark landed in Turkey, they ignored me and went on talking about how exciting it was to see dinosaurs in the Ark exhibit.
Take THAT Shinehah!

Kind of got me wondering if just maybe the whole Ark thing was only a fable.

I don't think "ghawd can be a total dick" is a fable.

It is an obvious fable only meant for young children and prehistoric peoples who would not yet know of science. Fortunately, my parents never even told us of Noah and the ark! Those religionists who even suggest it is literal are helping to make their children total non-believers in religion.

We are still evolving, despite certain political figures who seem to be devolving and returning to prehistoric beings.

Can’t refute that. It’s back to church for me!

Yeah but did they drop the mic afterwards?
If not, it doesn't count.

My favorite creationist question,
"If we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?"
Because you don't understand how branches of a tree work. You might want to take a look up at them once in awhile.

If we all drove here today, how can there still be cars on the road?

One of my mission companions was a YEC. His version was, "If evolution is real, then why aren't we still evolving?"

I would have facepalmed on the spot, except we were in the middle of an investigator discussion at the time.

Anybody who rejects evolution shouldn't have their impacted wisdom teeth or burst appendix removed until they accept science as their personal savior!

Oh man, this reminds of one of the members at a Presbyterian church where I used to work. This was a Quiverful family, very fundamentalist, and it turned out they were Young Earth Creationists as well, because of course they were. One time after a service, he cornered me to present a book written by some YEC crackpot with all these stupid geological theories about how all the geographic features of the Earth could totally have been formed in the last 6,000 years. I had no idea at the time that such things existed, took the book from him, and gave it back a week later.

That family left the congregation a short time later when they voted to have a booth at the local Pridefest.

Sometimes, after a day of hard work when my back is killing me, I would like to de-evolve and go back on all fours....

Since God can do anything, once the animals stepped onto the Ark they were miniaturized. This allow Noah to take more animals and less feed. Once they stepped off the Ark God re-inflated them.

Anyone that reads the Bible should know that!

Your talking about BC & AD right?

That's easy:

BC = before chocolate
AD = after dark "

You know, I find it funny that all these young earth/anti-evolution arguments require a lot of explanations. There is a lot of "maybe this"/"perhaps that" type of mental maneuvering required to believe the theories put out by these crackpots. All while overlooking the simplest theory that perhaps the Bible, written by superstitious tribesmen several thousand years ago, is just wrong.
