Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

How is new earth creationism a more goofy belief than transubstantiation? [View all]

A thread in gd points out how goofy creationists are by making fun of a proposed Noah's Ark addition to the creationism museum.

But why are these sorts of nonsensical beliefs in obvious nonsense any sillier than the standard beliefs of mainstream Christianity (or Islam or Judaism or any of the other major religions?)

The Eucharist performed in many Christian churches every week purports to transform bread and wine into the flesh and blood of god. To counter the obvious fact that the bread is still bread and that the wine is still wine, an entire goofball theoretical framework of Aristotelian physics is constructed, transubstantiation, that claims that the substance of what was bread has become flesh while it's continued observed bread-ness is 'an accident' an incidental property that is irrelevant to its transformed substance. This goofy nonsense is less goofy than new earth creationism how?
