A lot of Christians actually believe in evolution, and that the flood account was either allegorical or if it was real that it was an extremely localized event around the Mediterranean. Also the Big Bang theory was literally proposed by a Catholic scientist. Not only was he a scientist, he was also a priest

hi there, many thanks for your question

glad you accept the fact of evolution, but evolution contradicts the story of adam & eve. and without adam & eve, there was no original sin, which leaves to explain what jesus actually died for, no? can you enlighten me there?

if genesis is allegorical, then i assume it is fair to say that god is also just allegorical and does not exist, right? or how do you determine what to pick and choose to be allegorical in the bible?

noah landed on mountain ararat, which is a mountain more than 5000 meter high and is not even close to the mediterranean sea. could you please have a go and explain the physics of such a ‘localized event’? and if it is an allegory; an allegory for what?

it is correct that a priest hypothesized the big bang (and he even derived it scientifically). but who says a priest can not do science? as long as you do not mix in religion or any other untestable superstition, there is nothing wrong with it. many great scientists (especially in earlier centuries) where religious. not sure where you are heading at. care to explain?

Pope Francis says Catholic Church sex abuse sc…

Pope Francis says Catholic Church sex abuse scandal shouldn’t be judged by today’s standards because everyone used to cover up crimes:

religion-is-a-mental-illness:

  • Pope Francis told reporters in Tallinn, Estonia, that everyone covered up sex abuse scandals in the past.
  • He suggested that it’s unfair to apply modern standards to the Catholic Church’s cover up.
  • His comments come amid Catholic Church sex abuse scandals worldwide, with the most recent revealing at least 3,677 children had been abused by priests in Germany between 1946 and 2014.

The Catholic Church should be shut down, now. #SellTheVatican

Take the Build-a-Bear Double Standard Test: If you’re outraged by Build-a-Bear’s actions in this fictional scenario but defend what the Catholic Church has done for decades, then you’re a hypocrite with no sense of right and wrong and have no business lecturing atheists on morality. People who claim divine moral authority should be held to a higher standard, not a lower one. Why is there a double standard? Why does the Catholic Church get a pass? If it was a Build-a-Bear scandal, people would burn the company to the ground.
