That depends entirely on the fundamentalists own view on the subject. Shellfish, pork, circumcision and graven images no longer applies. The sodomy thing on the other hand...
I find that rather odd.

One wonders how they can continue to claim any sort of consistency.

Again, you are forgetting about the oxygen that makes your idiotic statement fail.
Again, you forget it divided from the Hydrogen and then came back together to form the solid elements that formed the planets or the dry land as the Bible states it.

No, hydrogen existed first. Oxygen did not appear for many millions of years after the first star was formed.

Really? I don't recall atomic theory ever being addressed in the Bible. Was that before or after "And-so-and-so-begat-so-a nd-so, yada, yada"? My only brief attempt to ever read the Bible ended quickly with that arrogant obsession with dynasties.

Christian Porn? Sounds like something kinky from Opus Dei! You're not trying to sell some to finance a new pope-mobile or something, are you?

Not all...the jihadist terrorist attacks on America were PolTICal-as in PoliTICal Terrorism".
No "semantics" to that.
Political terrorism is a form of terrorism (a tactic of violence that targets civilians) used to influence socio-political events so that gains occur that might not have otherwise happened by peaceful means. There are obviously different types of psychic terror, from religious and magical terror, to fear of the natural world. Criminal terrorists — those who use blackmail, intimidation, and the promotion of fear — are differentiated from political terrorists because the former seek to enrich themselves, whereas for the latter, it is a sine qua non that terrorist action is motivated and justified by the furtherance of an objective cause.( wordIQ.com )
----------
Definitions
There is no single, universally accepted, definition of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”(28 C.F.R. Section 0.85).
The FBI further describes terrorism as either domestic or international, depending on the origin, base, and objectives of the terrorist organization.....( FBI.gov )
So when are you all going to explain what "TIC" is? I looked it up in Urban Dictionary and found some of the results very disturbing!

A TIC is someone who is subject to PEST control and PEST analysis when they suck up the lifeblood of other organisms

Why would people believe anything that is allegory at best? The Bible is not a book of science.
Hmm...that is a matter of perspective "observation" it seems, at times.

A.P. "Scientists find ‘Goliath’ inscribed on pottery; Reference from 950 B.C. lends credence to Bible tale, Archaeologists say." 11/10/2005. MSN ScienceNews Web. 1/8/2013.

JERUSALEM — Archaeologists digging at the purported biblical home of Goliath have unearthed a shard of pottery bearing an inscription of the Philistine’s name, a find they claimed lends historical credence to the Bible’s tale of David’s battle with the giant.

While the discovery is not definitive evidence of Goliath’s existence, it does support the Bible’s depiction of life at the time the battle was supposed to have occurred, said Dr. Aren Maeir, a professor at Bar-Ilan University and director of the excavation.

“What this means is that at the time there were people there named Goliath,” he said.“It shows us that David and Goliath’s story reflects the cultural reality of the time.” In the story, David slew Goliath with a slingshot......
