Seafood Pasta explained the Religious and Atheist way

02 August 2012, 07:26
Let's see who can connect the dots. Please no copy and pasting your delightful answers.

In the beginning there was nothing, so I went to the shop and bought some stuff. I got some spaghetti, olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs and seafood mix. I bought a stove, gas, some kitchen utensils, pots and pans. I went home and placed the pan on the stove. I chopped up some onions and garlic into the pan and let it simmer till onions were soft with a tea spoon of olive oil. I place the pot with some boiling water on another stove plate. Then I added the spaghetti together with some olive oil, salt and left to cook for approximately 15 minutes. In the pan, wait till the onions become soft then add the seafood mix and leave for 5 minutes, add spices, pepper and some coconut cream, leave to simmer. When the pasta is ready, test the seafood mix, when ready serve and enjoy your meal.

In the beginning there was nothing, and God said, let there be light and there was light. Let there be night, and there was night. Let there be water and there was water. Let there be land and there was land. Let there be fish and animals, and there was fish and animals. Let there be man and there was man. On the seventh day God looked and He was satisfied, he then rested.

In the beginning there was nothing, out of nothing there was a big bang. The rocks pulled towards one another and eventually planets and stars were formed. Time past after millions and millions of years the asteroids, carrying water and minerals bombarded the earth, the planet cooled down and our first ice age started at roughly 750 million years ago. Under the ice, because of tectonic plate movement and hot malted rocks, they broke thru the ice and started melting the ice. With hot gasses released into the air, it helped formed the atmosphere. The sun still reflected thru enough sunrays for enough heat so that life could sustain itself on earth. With small bacteria, single cell organism, they mutated and millions of millions of years later we climbed the evolution ladder and we found man. Man cooked his supper, looked at it and was satisfied.

Short and sweet with as little detail as possible. The usual suspects will have an argument over what I have just said, please look at this logically. If God had to explain to Moses, Noah and Samson, in detail, how He created us, imagine how ridiculously that would have sound if they had to repeat the story over to the people of that times. For crying out load. Van Gogh died a poor man because people of the 16th century still didn`t believe the planet was in fact round and the sun didn’t revolve around the earth. Now you will tell me but, fact is fact and they have been brainwashed in believing what the bible said. Please remember when dealing with ancient people, including 5 year olds, you cannot tell them the long and hard story and expect them to understand. By the 5th sentence you would`ve lost the poor soul as they will simply just close off. Now imagine telling a child a story about red riding hood. The story tells you how Red was in danger from the wolf and that her grandma was eaten by the wolf. Because Red was so curious and asked so many questions, she was able to figure out that the wolf wasn’t her grandma and this gave enough time for the wood worker to come and saved her. It teaches them to ask questions when uncertain.

Right so we must be curious and alert. The Bible story can there for not be literal and should be treated as such. You need to read the book to understand the true meaning and not just take some text and refer to it as fact, read it in context. If still in doubt, please consult your parents and ask them how many times did they manage to drop you on your head?

Now imagine I have a hundred thousand bricks and twenty thousand bags of cement in my Boeing. I fly over an island and drop it from, let`s say ten thousand feet. There it falls to the ground and out of pure luck; I have build my own mansion with swimming pool and gardens to die for. My point is simple, you may not agree but, it`s impossible to have the house build without some interference. Will it be gravity or God in the case of The Big Bang? It had to get the ingredients from somewhere, whether its Builders warehouse or Woollies for my pasta. Somewhere, somehow, something or someone had to intervene for it to be the way it is as we see it at the end. You may argue its nature or the way the cosmos work according to your science, fine I don’t mind, tell me simply then where did that come from? When did science or nature decide, let’s explode and build a mansion on the island and serve pasta for dinner? The bible is no fairytale, but it explains that there is a greater power at play. You can go through live as you like, but remember when you do wrong onto others, you will have to answer for it.

Bergie, I said I’ll mention you this week, I enjoy your sporting articles, and stop being biased about it. Charles Dumbwin, don’t fight so hard against these that refuse to understand or even try to see someone else’s point other than their own. Biker, America isn’t that bad, I lived there for 8 months in the worst conditions; I still liked it as I went for the experience. Zion, please don’t let these people on this form get the better of you, you came this far, you are not a quitter. Ccracker, stop copying and pasting your old comments, we get the message. As for these I haven’t mentioned, you all unique in your own way, be true to yourself and keep an open mind before you find yourself in a place you don’t like.   As for me, thank you all for your input and comments, you have made me a MyNews24 addict and I love it.
