    You're right. I forgot 'And in Some Cases Assuming Further Research Doesn't Prove The Theory Completely Incorrect'

    As was much of my response (err, intended to be humorous, that is). I actually read Cracked regularly, and a lot of it is really interesting (they often provide at least some citations too, which is nice). But the point is that as far as proving these beliefs (one of which isn't even a Christian belief and some of which have similar enough stories in other religions to be equally 'validated') 'True' or citing evidence of the validity of various Biblical ideas, this is pretty weak stuff.

    My guess is that Lark is also aware of that and using a fair share of sarcasm.

    Lark, are you for real?

    Seriously, using a Cracked article that refers to a limited number of biblical phenomena as being naturally occurring... as proof the Bible is all true? Either you're trolling or making Forrest Gump look like a Nobel laureate.

    Yeah but what does MAD magazine have to say?

    Cracked is actually usually fairly reliable in its fact-finding, comedy magazine or not.

    Aleksei, that may be true, but their validation for Adam and Eve, even in this article, is as such:

    Assuming from the get-go evolution is true, then at some point in human history (note: before the world was created 6,000 years ago according to creationism) a man, whom existed not in the location Eden supposedly existed (in the Middle East, not Africa, given geological evidence from the Bible) in and was born of two parents whom fucked mutated a genetic aspect common to all men today. Also, a woman, also made more out of fucking than a rib and who did not live within one hundred millenia of the aforementioned Adam also randomly mutated something now common to all female humans. There was no snake. There was no apple (or fig, as it was originally intended). There was no Godly advice. There was no original sin. There was only a couple widely separated possible to probable common ancestors, existing in purely evolutionary terms.

    They really aren't saying these myths are at all accurate, but that they aline with possible truths very loosely.

    The point of the Adam & Eve thing is that all humans are descended from one common mother, Eve. There is evidence that actually supports this theory; there is no evidence that a talking snake tricked the ancestors of humankind into becoming intelligent by eating the fruit of a tree.
