The list is endless

The Rev. Tony Hammack, a youth pastor at Christian Faith Fellowship in Cape Girardeau, Mo. says there is no mention of evolution in the Bible.

Here are a few other things that go unmentioned in the Bible: The fact that the earth orbits the sun, not the other way around. The continents of North America, South America, and Antarctica. Freedom and democracy. The rights of women. How to build a telescope, microscope, or refrigerator. The cure for smallpox, leprosy, and polio. The real cause of storms, earthquakes, and floods.

None of this is surprising given the fact that the Bible was written by people who were ignorant of modern science, but that doesn't make any of the discoveries of the past 2,000 years any less true.

Update: Our original post said that there is no mention in the Bible of homosexuality. This is, of course, incorrect. The biblical condemnation of homosexuality is in Leviticus, which also calls for the death penalty for adultery, banishment for people who have sex while the woman is having her period, and the stoning of wizards.

We'd like to see them try that with Harry Potter. Come to think of it, Vernon and Petunia Dursley, Harry's sanctimonious step parents, seem the perfect embodiment of people who believe this foolishness.
