So yea, they'll have fake dinosaurs on this historically accurate Noah's Ark. IMO, we should draw the line and force real dinosaurs.

Also, I love how, from this historically accurate poster, Noah apparently contracted a whole crew of workers to build his ship....and then from the top of the ship, he was all 'LOL @ U' as they all drowned before getting paid.



Something lighthearted to enjoy during your interview cycle.

they should make it like the Jurassic Park ride at Disney world.

Also, anyone else enjoy the pre-historical cranes in use by Noah?
Stargate has the answers! Extra-terrestrial Anubis warriors helped him.

Obv bs...since aliens helped us build ALL prehistoric structures.
Finally someone else gets it!! That's how the Egyptian tombs were constructed--there wasn't enough oxygen down there for a flame to burn, so they were clearly given extraterrestrial flashlights. It's readily apparent to anyone with even an iota of intelligence that aliens gave a crane to Noah, as well.

Obviously, aliens traveled for hundreds of years and expended untold resources to help mankind build stone structures that they could have plausibly built themselves.

Just to **** with us. I like these aliens. Although if I was interacting with them at that time, I'd be like 'So dude, this plan to build a huge ass stone triangle is nice and Imma let you finish, but how 'bout you help a brotha out and cure the malaria and dysentery that's killing all your workers. Also, it'd be nice to not have half the women in my family die due to childbirth. kkthxbye."

lmao!

But seriously...the way ancient structures were built amazes me. In all seriousness...some of those stones were quarried quite far from the sites they were used in building....crazy.

Forgive my biblical ignorance, but I understand that there was two of every animal on said boat thereby creating an inbred genetic species of every being on earth, but I don't recall Noah having an women on the boat with him? It is only the next logical question to ask then how our species survived?

I am offended that you are making fun of my religious beliefs.
Why? I've read a couple of your posts and you seem to have no problem making fun of other people's opinions. It's an open forum. People are entitled to say what they want to.

That said, this forum's devolved into a bullying session at this point. We're supposed to be future physicians. Let's act a little more mature.

This thread is full of win. As is any thread talking about Stargate.



Also.....I have a feeling Cole is being sarcastic.

Though if not...please pardon me:)

re: alien architecture - some people simply can't grasp how boring life was in 2500 BCE. no video games/internet as time suck = you get enslaved into building someone's tomb.

re: geologic record - some people simply can't grasp how long 65m years really is.

Pyramids were actually built by workers who were paid quite well. One of the contributing factors to the fall of the old kingdom of Egypt was overuse of resources into meaningless tomb building

I know it is oh so special to be all filled to the brim with self-righteous indignation at the thought of people exercising both their freedom of religion and their freedom of speech but lets be honest;

What is the difference between this, and any religious expression by any other religion on the planet?

Why aren't their any threads devoted to mocking the Hindu belief in a pantheon of gods? Or the Buddhist/Hindu belief in reincarnation? Or the various Muslim beliefs?

I'm not a creationist, and I think the whole position is one big falsehood, but I am getting a little tired of all the sanctimonious asshats in these threads who are so quick to ridicule the un-provable beliefs of a bunch of hard working white christians, but wouldn't dare to attack the un-provable beliefs of a bunch of arabs or indians.

Perhaps it is because the predominant religion in the US is some form of Christianity? Availability heuristic..

Just think about it: the majority of posters in pre-allo are in the US/applying to US schools. Considering that Christianity is the dominant religion in the US, it makes complete sense that threads regarding religion tend to focus on Christianity rather than other religions.

Indignation? Did I express any indignation? People can spend their money how they want, and believe what they want. I find it hilarious. If people want to see Jesus Riding Dinosaurs, I say go for it.

If we were in India, I'd be doing that. Duh.

Yeah, you wimps. You spineless cowards would never dare attack Allah, Muhammad, Zoroaster, Vishnu, Krishna, Siva, Ra, Horus, Gaia, Zeus, Anu, Thor, Zod, Apollo, Baal, Cthulu, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Also, you're racists: attacking "hard working white" people and leaving alone the Arabs and Indians (There are obviously no Christian Arabs and Indians)? Shame on you. FYI Obama is president now and racism if officially over.
