158. It IS insane to think humans were literally created from clay.
It IS insane to think men have one less rib than women.

It IS insane to think the earth is thousands, and not millions, of years old.

Why? Because there is undeniable, uncontestable evidence that none of those things are true, and indeed are counterfactual.

Is it not NUTS to deny reality in favor of myth when reality stares you in the face - like a literalist counting a male skeleton's ribs and, despite the fact that there are the same number in both sexes, insisting that they must be miscounting, or that the skeleton must have somehow been 'rigged'?

If you're saying we should respect nonsense like that, sorry, never going to happen. IMHO it's INSANE to be a biblical literalist.
