UFO’s and Dinosaurs vs the Bible

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Wouldn't you know it, after posting the above, this comes out.

Well okay then.
Statues of Jeebus? I don't think I've ever seen a statue of him outside a church. You know, graven image and all that.
Not all Christian sects are iconoclasts though. That's really only most Protestant sects and the Nestorians to my knowledge.

You could definitely include the Paulicians but they seem to have been erased by an Armenian Church inquisition in the latter 19th century. Which is a damned shame because they were the last of the Gnostic Christians.
Which, if I understand what they believe, are essentially a walking contradiction in terms.....

The human race is oddly nostalgic for people of the past. They keep us backwards. I’m quite disgusted that are large portion of society is guided by books written by humans thousands of years ago, let’s move the fuck on ffs. Monuments quite frankly disgust me. Every time I see Mount Rushmore, dynamite and long wick come to mind. We need to stop fucking up nature with shit like that. I prefer monuments that are neither political nor religious.

Please tell me you still like steak, roast beef and the occasional pork chops though, right?

No to veggie burgers. It's just wrong.

The mob today seems to consider all monuments to be political.

Not necessarily. I hate being tortured, but I prefer sleep deprivation to water boarding.

If I had to pick or choose. Like for instance the Bronze statue of Harry Jerome is acceptable. But anything representative of religion of any sort should be destroyed!

I don't know much about the faith of the Christian Gnostics Meds, except that they were dualists ie. they believed in a bad god of this world and a good god of the afterlife. Not much remains of their literature due to frequent inquisitions and book burnings over the centuries. They were the forerunners of the Western European Cathars and Balkan Bogomils and possibly the Church of Bosnia if you're more familiar with any of them.

Here is a scholarly article on their last days in Armenia:

https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/3153904.pdf

Here is a copy of The Key Of Truth, a latter day manual of the Paulicians:

Unlike the Cathars who were slaughtered in France, the Paulicians had a pretty badass army in their heyday :D

The Bosnians eventually converted to Islam under Ottoman influence rather than taking the seemingly never ending persecutions from both Rome and Constantinople.

They left behind some really interesting cemetery headstones, if not much else:
