Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

Another wow moment in science

with 2 comments

Initial scientific reaction to the discovery of what appears to be the world’s most intact dinosaur mummy: a 67-million-year-old plant-eater that contains fossilized bones and skin tissue, and possibly muscle and organs, is that it “could reshape the understanding of dinosaurs and their habitat.”

Scientists are exited because the find can potentially prove current understanding about dinosaurs wrong. For one, a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan indicates that dinosaur size had probably been underestimated to date.

I doubt I can recall a single instance where theologians were exited about the fact that new data and information may potentially upset their precariously balanced applecart of Bronze Age tarradiddles and Dark Age mendacities.

Yes, theologians may be exited about new data revealing the sexual inactivity of Mary the Mom, or Paul’s more painful suffering for “God” and all, but don’t try and excite them with “new insight of ‘God'”. There are exceptional theologians and Bible scientists, of course, but their insights exclude them from Club Dogma.
