They are people that do not beleve that todays date is that many years from the DAY JESUS WAS BORN. Now if Jesus is not the son of God why is there a AD and BC ?

Could it be because our current calendar system which we use to track the very imperfect wobbles orbit of our planet was created by Pope Gregory XIII.

Today is also Thursday, which is name for the god Thor (Thor's day). Next month is January, named for the roman god Janus.

(PS: The Gregorian calendar [aka Christian calendar] is NOT the only calendar currently in use in the world.)

At least I'm not dumb enough to believe that the earth is 6000 years old and fossils were put here by god to deliberately deceive us.

Now that's Grade A Dumb and you're an idiot for perpetuating such a stupid myth under the guise of religion.

I'm a proven idiot forum troll who thinks the earth is 6000 years old because I never bothered to study science or get a basic education. I hate Skeptic because he keeps exposing the fact that I'm a creationist liar, spreading propoganda to everyone in the forum. It makes it really hard for me to convert anybody or lie to them about atheists or scientists, which is my number one agenda.
My pleasure.

I am admittedly a man in the grey area and I think unwittingly we all are. For those who say there is a God/SuperBeing involved in every minute aspect of our lives I say "where is the evidence?" and for those who say the opposite and we are merely products of Mother Nature I say "who is Father Nature?".(Every woman requires a man to procreate). The point is that it's not a straight forward debate from either standpoint. Perhaps the way to look at it is to examine ourselves. Are we merely a collection of cells arranged in a certain way by chance that somehow produces consciousness? Or are we conscious beings covered by matter that allows us to interact in a material world with other members ofthis world?
