Is this picture as silly as it appears to be?

And I think I'm being generous by just calling it silly.

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.

Why do you find it silly?

It's full of strawmans, translation cherry picking, and generous paraphrasing.

For example, science never claimed that Earth sits on a large animal.

It sounds like some one just pulled those 'science then' right out of their ass.

I think I became dumber for having read that. I also don't think whoever put that chart together ever heard of the ancient Greeks. Not to mention that the verse in Isaiah that they reference calls the earth a circle, not a sphere.

Because most of it is a lie. It uses poetic imagery and masquerades it as intended Biblical fact, and then defines "science" as "the stupidest pagan non-scientific beliefs we could find".

Are you planning on listing these or should I just take your word?

For example, science never claimed that Earth sits on a large animal.


Neither did the Bible. But what's that have to do with bloodletting?

Err.. you dont have to take his word.. the second thing you responded to was an example. The idea that the earth sits on an animal was listed in the "science" column

It ignores all the times the Bible is wrong. So it's a biased infographic.
