I Thought Satan Put Them There to Deceive Us

From today's Overheard in New York:

Yeah, Famous Like...Um...
Chick: I know you'll think I'm crazy, but I just don't believe that dinosaurs ever existed.
Guy: What? Well, where do you think those dinosaur bones come from?
Chick: People just make them and put them in the ground and then dig them up so they will be famous.
Guy: I can't believe you're serious.
--Museum of Natural History

On second thought, maybe God put them there to test our faith.

LOL.
That sounds like some of my friends and neighbors here in Oklahoma. I swear, they don't believe in anything that isn't in the bible. My current argument is, "Well, then you better not eat chocolate." (Leaves more for me,the way I look at it.)

Betty, what's the deal with chocolate and the Bible?

I'm with Johnny. What's the deal?

As for the post, I've actually heard this too!

It's like logic is turned off if any non-bible thing comes up. I will never understand it.

I was engaged to a rather progressive, leftist woman who, nevertheless refused to entertain any notion other than creationism as the theory of Earth's origins. She used the same exact language posted here, and added that there was a possibility that fossil evidence was "God's little joke."

I think Gawd put those people on Earth to test my faith.

And yes, I have heard the circular logisticians speak the same patter as well in Pittsburgh--they went to "bible study" several times a week.

Boy, Sukes, you've had me laughing all day.

I'm not surprised that the Pittsburgh 'circular logisticians' came back to haunt you after the B.S. was done. (Bible study, I mean).

If they only believe in things that are in the Bible, then they can't believe in chocolate because it isn't there.
