Quotes to share over at The Swamp.

Postby BathTub » Tue Aug 17, 2010 12:15 am

I thought we could compile a list of fun, stupid, whatever quotes for the people to feel free to paste, over, and over and over again like carl does.

Let the Fundies speak for themselves.

Martin Luther

Geocentrist

"Scripture simply says that the moon, the sun, and the stars were placed in the firmament of the heaven, below and above which heaven are the waters... It is likely that the stars are fastened to the firmament like globes of fire, to shed light at night... We Christians must be different from the philosophers in the way we think about the causes of things. And if some are beyond our comprehension like those before us concerning the waters above the heavens, we must believe them rather than wickedly deny them or presumptuously interpret them in conformity with our understanding."

- Martin Luther, Luther's Works. Vol. 1. Lectures on Genesis, ed. Janoslaw Pelikan, Concordia Pub. House, St. Louis, Missouri, 1958, pp. 30, 42, 43.


"People gave ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon. Whoever wishes to appear clever must devise some new system, which of all systems is of course the very best. This fool [or 'man'] wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred Scripture tells us that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth."

- Martin Luther, Table Talk


"There is talk of a new astrologer who wants to prove that the earth moves and goes around instead of the sky, the sun, the moon, just as if somebody were moving in a carriage or ship might hold that he was sitting still and at rest while the earth and the trees walked and moved. But that is how things are nowadays: when a man wishes to be clever he must . . . invent something special, and the way he does it must needs be the best! The fool wants to turn the whole art of astronomy upside-down. However, as Holy Scripture tells us, so did Joshua bid the sun to stand still and not the earth."


John Calvin, Geocentrist.

"Those who assert that 'the earth moves and turns'...[are] motivated by 'a spirit of bitterness, contradiction, and faultfinding;' possessed by the devil, they aimed 'to pervert the order of nature.'"

- John Calvin


R. G. Elmendorf

"I will give $1,000 to anyone who can prove to me that the earth moves."

- R. G. Elmendorf (1980), member of the Association of Biblical Astronomy, and of the Bible-Science Association (a group of young-earth creationists)


Martin Luther on the Jews.

http://www.nobeliefs.com/luther.htm

Did I not tell you earlier that a Jew is such a noble, precious jewel that God and all the angels dance when he farts?

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)



However, they have not acquired a perfect mastery of the art of lying; they lie so clumsily and ineptly that anyone who is just a little observant can easily detect it.

But for us Christians they stand as a terrifying example of God's wrath.

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)



Learn from this, dear Christian, what you are doing if you permit the blind Jews to mislead you. Then the saying will truly apply, "When a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into the pit" [cf. Luke 6:39]. You cannot learn anything from them except how to misunderstand the divine commandments...

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)

Therefore the blind Jews are truly stupid fools...

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)



Now just behold these miserable, blind, and senseless people.

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)



...their blindness and arrogance are as solid as an iron mountain.

-Martin Luther (On the Jews and Their Lies)

Henry Morris.

Angels fighting with demons formed the craters on the moon, saturns rings, asteroids etc.

In any case, the possibility is at least open that the fractures and scars on the moon and Mars, the shattered remnants of an erstwhile planet that became the asteroids, the peculiar rings of Saturn, the meteorite swarms, and other such features that somehow seem alien to a "very good" universe as God must have created it may have been acquired later. Perhaps they reflect some kind of heavenly catastrophe associated either with Satan's primeval rebellion or his continuing battle against Michael and his angels.

St. Thomas Aquinas

As regards the individual nature, woman is defective and misbegotten, for the active power of the male seed tends to the production of a perfect likeness in the masculine sex; while the production of a woman comes from defect in the active power.


If forgers and malefactors are put to death by the secular power, there is much more reason for excommunicating and even putting to death one convicted of heresy.


That the saints may enjoy their beatitude and the grace of God more abundantly they are permitted to see the punishment of the damned in hell.


And one I actually like:

The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false.
The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head.
-Terry Pratchett, "Hogfather"

carl thinking IDA is an ape-man

That's why they LIED to us about supposed "ape-men" like IDA


carl thinks fossils are our descendants.

1) A fossil ape skull is found and they call it a 'human descendant'.


Dear photosynthesis,
Are you denying that 'Ida', a fossil lemur, was originally and falsely claimed to be a human descendant?


IDA being our descendant, remember? Just a few months ago?


Dear T, you do know that IDA is NOT our descendant as previously claimed, right?

'Ida', a fossil lemur, was originally and falsely claimed to be a human descendant
