Notice, that it says it was >copied< in the 19th Dynasty.
More about the 19th Dynasty and timeline.
"The Pharaohs of the 19th dynasty ruled for approximately one hundred and ten years: from ca 1292 to 1187 BCE." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteenth_Dynas...
As I said before, the dates do not match. Some more information.
"An Egyptian named Ipuwer wrote it at the end of the Middle Kingdom, around 1650 B.C.E.; scribes copied it in the 19th Dynasty, in the 1200s B.C.E" - Roger Isaacs, Author,'Talking With God'
Ipuwer Papyrus info @wikipedia.
"The dating of the original composition of the poem is disputed, but several scholars have suggested a date between the late 6th dynasty and the Second Intermediate Period (ca. 1850 BCE-1600 BCE),[4] and appears to describe how the Hyksos took over Egypt.

I can agree with that somewhat. The larger cities, populated areas, and College towns can and are pretty progressive.

But, some(not all) of the rural areas are just as racist, misogynistic and bigoted as they ever were.

Can anybody spell Larry Craig?

Broun is a political conservative; his fundamentalist religious views inform his politics. In May 2009, Broun proposed failed legislation that would have proclaimed 2010 "The Year Of The Bible".[23] He also introduced a bill to ban the sale or rental of sexually explicit materials on U.S military installations.[24]
In 2008, Broun and 91 co-sponsors introduced H.J.Res.89, a proposition for the Federal Marriage Amendment. The proposed amendment to the United States Constitution would define marriage as "as consisting only of the union of a man and a woman.

He protesteth too much methinks.

Why don't you go hit on him and see how he responds? You say you are fit, drive snazzy cars, and have money. Catch him in a john somewhere. Expose him. It's your civic duty.

You might enjoy it.

Funny thing, the irrational would say the same about the rational. I mean, doesn't that rational person have a clue? They must be uninformed.

Now, I'm not saying you are irrationl. You may not be.

One must be intelligent enough to absorb and understand an education. The reason why we have so many Topix atheists. Lack of intelligence tests allowing them to be educated. Money can buy anything.

Perhaps because, if you are going to be on the science and technology committee, you should not be actively against several basic disciplines.

The difference being that the rational are using evidence and logic, and the irrational are not. In this case, the irrational would be the creationist, since they don't based their position on evidence and logic but instead on a literal interpretation of a specific set of scriptures.

An apologist site, that gets it's info from other apologist sites.

Here is an example of the wonderfully hilarious self deception that one of the "sources" engages in:

"Is the inscription authentic? The court held only that the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the inscription was a forgery. But it surely did not find that the inscription was authentic. I have no doubt, however, that it is."

And that was the closest anyone came to a positive statement of the inscriptions history. It is not authentic, just not proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be fake. But the headlines won't tell you this, no, they read as if they is no doubt at all as to it's authenticity.

How do you not see this stuff? It's like if someone agrees with you, no matter how flimsy their reasoning or how far fetched their logic, you just take it and run with it. And anything that might damage your god belief is completely ignored.

Well, that wouldn't be for me really.

I am totally comfortable with anybody's preferences in any consensual adult relationship.

And I have my own preferences.(Not prudish by the way.)
