I found this posted on facebook. I'd like to hear what you guys think about this.

Delete the person who posted it and be ashamed of yourself for knowing that person. And if possible put some cyanide in their next meal to put them out their misery.
That's nothing... I get this kinda stuff daily. It takes all my patience and restraint not to comment, but I'd love to comment on this one! Just not sure what to say.
Perhaps point out that all of the things they listed are ass-backwards far-fetched interpretations and/or straight out lies? Maybe remind them that certain scientists were prosecuted for coming up with half of the things on that list? Or seriously, just delete them and put their phone numbers on a BDSM dating site with the text "horny mistress looking for her servile pet, call me anytime after 12pm."
Isaiah 40:22 actually calls the earth a circle, which is a 2 dimensional shape... I guess words can be tough for some people.
Basically it is the usual tosh that religion trots out to 'prove' their point. And as per usual there are lots of other passages that contradict the bible list. And then there is no mention about what gets lost or changed in the various translations, or the parts of the bible that didn't make it to the final cut.
Have a look at this:
It might help you clear a few things up.
And I have to ask, does anyone know which 'scientist' thought that the world was sat on the back of a large animal? A'tuin? Has someone got Pratchetts' Disc World Series mixed up with science publications?
I think this has been posted before, but it bears mentioning again. This is just the stuff that is directly contradicted elsewhere in the Bible. When you think about the actual amount of claims, false or otherwise, in the Bible, it's hardly surprising that a few things happened to be right. Chances are there's another verse one could quote that directly contradicts each of the above.
