I was thinking about a conversation I had with a recent fling of mine. She's a pretty avid christian but we got along by not talking about it. I think this is what made me start to think differently about her and then we stopped doing our thing.

Ignorance is bliss though, right?

Hannah: I use a face wash that's peach smelling and has sand in it.

Jared: Oh yeah I have that too. It hurts. I love it.

Hannah: Haha it's good!

Jared: (being the little fact distributor that I am) Do you know how sand came to be?

Hannah: No...

Jared: It's just seashells that have been crushed up over time. There's other shit in there too, but that's basically what it is.

Hannah: I don't believe that. I'm a creationist.

Jared: What do you mean?

Hannah: God just put the sand there.

Jared: ...really...


Now, I know that this type of conversation isn't news to anyone. But SERIOUSLY?! Why couldn't she have just said that god put the seashells there and then over time the water made the sand. Hell, she could have even said that god MADE the water turn it into sand.

But no. God made sand. End of story.

I guess we broke up because I'd rather not have sex with a brain-dead stump.

Ha ok, first I wasn't going to comment on this, because in the preview it looked like you were just going to go on and on with this conversation. And then I read it. I think that a lot of believers have problems with wrapping their minds around the fact that, even if they do want to believe in a god, there has to be some leeway for scientific and natural exploration. For instance, god didn't just put plastic on the earth. He didn't just make glass. Glass is actually made from sand. I mean, if someone wants to believe that god just said, "hmm, this island would look a lot better surrounded in some ground up seashells", then that's cool. But they should also be prepared to believe that god put EVERYTHING here, which means they'd have to believe that god put recliners here, and god put agent orange here, and god put rape, murder, and incest here. All these things had to just come from god if someone is going to be so closed minded as to say that god just dropped an entire world's worth of sand here. I agree with you, though. Not even because of the sex. I couldn't stand to be around a person who didn't question something as obvious as how sand is made.

I should have brought up the plastic or glass thing. That would have been an instant tear down of her "argument" that hopefully would have made her open her eyes a little. But I was too dumbfounded to think at that point. Good reply. I didn't get your opening though.

Satan made sand to irritate people trying to have lunch at the beach. God never would have been such an asshole.
