Most think it's silly when some have changed the story of the age of the earth by suggesting that man and dinasours walked side by side in earth. That they lived at the same time and that dinasours aren't really from millions if years ago but from just a few thousand years. Like I said, Im sure most Christians don't really believe this. But I see a growing number that are starting to actually claim this statement as fact.
At first it was denied by Christians that evolution really occurs. But now some Christians are basically say that it does happen but god planned it that way on purpose. I'm sure some of you will come back by saying that both can be true. But if you go back in recent years. I'd say as early as 20 years back. Not many would make that claim. You'd either say evolution occurs or that it's completely false. There was no in between. But today there is a middle ground. A way of combining the belief with the finding has been worked out some more feel okay to say god created evolution. But this is a new concept that has been adapted.
I'll bet soon those people that are anti-gay for religious reasons will find some way to say they misinterpreted the bible and that it's ok. Because its more accepted in society today and religion will have to adjust. By the way. I'm not suggesting all Christians are bigots about gays. But we all know there are many out there that are).
If we ever find alien life I have a feeling a belief will surface that it was created by gods cousin or brother. I know that seems silly but I do see how Christians tend to alter their beliefs when something contradicts what their religion teaches them and becomes more accepted by society. Makes me wonder how long it'll take before its realized that nothing in this book exists anymore that hasn't been changed.
So I'm curious as to what the next thing will be that's altered to new scientific findings and social norms.
