Quote# 120582

Not one person accepts the theory of common ancestor on this board. Adam, Noah, Abraham were all common ancestor. If you reject that then that means you reject the theory of common ancestor.

Mister Spak

Someone doesn't know what common ancestor means. Or theory.

Doubting Thomas

First prove that those three people actually existed. Then learn what common ancestor means.

Okay, 1. A Common ancestor speceis (e.g. Australopithecus afraensis) would make all humankind related.
2. Even by biblical mythology, Abraham was ancestor only of Jews and Arabs, not the rest of humanity

I don't want to believe that this person and I are related in any way.

I wonder if the real reason for Creationism....at least these days....is ethnicism?

I mean....all evidence points to everybody not only being descended from a common primate ancestor...but also being descended from migrating Black people.

We all know how most of these guys these days are weirded-out by Blacks, Muslims, etc.

A "Mighty Whitey" finding out that we're all one and the same and that that guy in the mirror is simply a Black person with a weird melanin-deficiency mutation would be too mind-blowing!

You don't understand common ancestor

Ancestry,hmmm. One of my favorite bible contradictions is that the messiah HAD to be a descendant of the house of David. Joseph of course was. But Joseph wasn't Jesus's father. Levitical law dictates patriarchal descent and no other. It's one of God's laws and God quite famously cannot break his own laws, that's why he can't just say "let's just forget the hell thing altogether." That's why traditionally the wife takes her husbands name at marriage. The woman's lineage isn't even a consideration. So Jesus by default couldn't have been the messiah. Unless (ahem) the virgin birth thing wasn't true, which still kind of screws up the narrative.

Metatron: Now, listen closely, because this bit's very important. Existence, in all its form and splendor, functions solely on one principle: God is infallible. To prove Him wrong would undo reality and everything that is.

Maybe your reality, but you are obviously a moron.

You may have a point there, joshua. But I doubt if anyone will be able to figure out what it is.

As Robin Williams famously said; Reality... What a concept!

"Adam, Noah, Abraham were all common ancestor."

Yes. Extremely Common.

They don't accept the theory of a common ancestor, except they totally do. I was slightly confused for a half-second, but then I remembered these people are idiots.

7/18/2016 9:13:48 PM


Just because I have ancestors doesn't mean they were Adam, Noah and Abraham.

7/19/2016 12:29:58 PM

And who were their ancestors again? Theory is not what you think it is
