Religious creation myths are all ridiculous

with 11 comments

In response to Poxinfinite asserting that the creation stories of the Bible/Quran could be right…
They are as absurd as the creation myths in any religion/culture be they the Abrahamic ‘creation ex nihilo’, the vast range of Hindu myths (who according to Wikipedia don’t seem to have much conflict with evolution), or the Inuit belief that the trickster in the form of Raven created the world (when the waters forced the ground up from the deep Raven stabbed it with his beak and fixed it into place).
I prefer the outlook of the Buddha who generally ignores the question regarding the origin of life.
No intelligent person could take them seriously.
These myths have been lampooned and had the nail put in their coffin by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster…
This is the ‘ironic’ statement from their website:

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, while having existed in secrecy for hundreds of years, only recently came into the mainstream when this letter was published in May 2005.
With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshippers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by it’s opponents – mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.
Some claim that the church is purely a thought experiment, satire, illustrating that Intelligent Design is not science, but rather a pseudoscience manufactured by Christians to push Creationism into public schools. These people are mistaken. The Church of FSM is real, totally legit, and backed by hard science. Anything that comes across as humor or satire is purely coincidental.
