Today was fun

Used belief in Santa Claus as an allegory for belief in God, got quite an impressive stunned-silent reaction from the freshmen when I described the experience of learning Santa doesn't exist.

The mystical Christmas fairy, not any of the actual people he is or may be based on.

This stemmed from an explanation of Plato's "Cave" allegory.Some girl is still angry that she's the only one who believes the planet is just 6000 years old.

Took my girlfriend to a botanical garden, then to a fantastic sunset view overlooking the city, then to dinner at a tasty tapayaki (Americans call it hibachi, but that's incorrect) restaurant.

Breezed through my calculus homework.

Pissed folks off, made someone happy, accomplished school goal.

All-in-all, a wonderful day.

The "young Earther" is a fool. A person would have to be wilfully ignorant to insist that the biblical description is meant to be a literal account of the creation of the world. Worse they'd have to be some sort of insanely egotistical fool to think that they, as imperfect creations could possibly understand the workings of an infinitely perfect god.


What is time to a god? Where did it say that the days were consecutive 24 hour periods? Can she give the full account of Genesis to the flood, or does she just take the 6000 figure for granted? Does the silly git know what 1 Timothy 2:12 say? And if she's really insistent, is she willing to submit to a test to prove that she's a believer according to the biblical guidelines set out in Mark 16:17-18 and drink a cup of bleach while juggling a pair of live western diamondback rattlers?

If she can't give satisfactory answers to all of the above, then she should sit her bitch ass down and stfu like the bible tells her to do.
