Continuity Errors in the Bible and Star Trek

An interesting post at the blog Undeception compares continuity errors in two canons – the Bible and Star Trek – and notes the similarity between the attempts at harmonization among die-hard fans of both.

I can also share under the heading “religion and science fiction” a humorous video about Calvinism (HT Hacking Christianity), because at one point one of the characters suggests that the other may be confusing God with Megatron.

    Professor, you really think you are a comedian don’t you?

    Humor of course is a form of ridicule, and as such does not constitute argument per se.

    Whatever…when are you staging the deconversion?  And do you have a book deal lined up?

      What if God thinks religion deserves ridicule?  What if religion is just some people on an ego trip assuming they know more about God than anyone else?

      That is the curious thing about Eric Flints 1632 series.  All of these Europeans fighting each other over religion or using religion as an excuse and assuming God cares.  Was God actually thinking, “These dummies are killing each other for their delusions.”

    You used to post that same thing on my old blog. Is this some strange sort of spam? Are you ever going to explain what you are talking about?

    Humor of course is a way to tolerate the terrible human condition (unless you happen to enjoy the perfect life so far—if so, eventually it will be terrible, just wait long enough).
    On inerrancy, anyone that’s been a supervisor of people can relate to the process of delegation. You delegate with general instructions, and you think you made yourself clear. Bible authors have a problem with separating their views from God’s. I didn’t know that Lutherans pick up chicks with their bible doctrine, at least in Patmos.

    But what if the system actually works on reincarnation and relativity is in the Bible?

    How did Enoch get TRANSLATED and Melchizedek not have a MOTHER?

    How could anyone know about relativity before 1900?
