Idiots believe doctrines that were made by humans as an interpretation of the bible. For instance, if genesis is to be read literally, the earth is 6000 years old. Obviously not true. And then there's evolution which supposedly contradicts the idea that god magically made humans. He could have, but all evidence indicates otherwise.
IYou can interpret the bible, not all of it's literal. For example, do I believe that Moses with gods help parted the red sea, no, but I do believe god went through great links and helped the Jews through Moses, and the red sea is a metaphor to show the great links that god went through to help the Jewish people. Also, if you're going to toss around modern science says this, and modern science says that, you've got to realize that the ancient Greeks had arguably the most advanced medical technology and knowledge of their time period, but they also thought you could Iive without a heart.
64 - I've actually watched a program on TV where they proved Bible stories to be physically and naturally possible using science. It was intriguing, actually. I believe that religion and science can totally go hand-in-hand with each other, if you keep and open mind. 89 - Because the Earth is not only 6,000 years old. Try 4.54 billion.
#73: They're not automatically mutually exclusive. However, science is based around the (wait for it!) scientific method, meaning that a hypothesis must be backed up by observed reality. If it isn't, it is discarded or amended. A theory, in the scientific sense, is just a collection of related hypotheses that have stood the test of time. Religion, on the other hand, generally values a faith-based approach. You're supposed to accept things without being given any evidence, with the only reason being 'because we said so'. Sometimes, if observed reality runs counter to a religious teaching, this is seen as a 'test of faith'. The Catholic doctrine of 'transubstantiation' is a good example of this 'it is true because all the evidence shows it is false' ass-backwards way of thinking that typifies many religions.

There is no "impossible", but merely a "so unlikely that we should not reasonably expect it to happen" but the fact, that some event did happen does not allow any assertions about it's likelyhood. Maybe if it hadn't happen we would not be here to discuss it but we are.
Pssh, obviously the fossils were eaten by unicorns. Everyone knows dinosaur bones are the primary source of nutrition for unicorns. And unicorn blood is the primary nutrition of Dark Lords. It's the circle of life.
