If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Why, when biblical stories like the six-day creation and the story of Jonah used to be taken literally, do Christians now say with certainty, science contradicting things like that, that they're allegorical?


It depends on the Christian. Some Christians translate the bible to mean exactly what it says. Other Christians make ridiculous excuses to pretend the fantasies are allegorical. 

Sort of off topic: Why do Christian crybabies use censorship to defend their moronic death cult? I think it's because they're desperate. They know their disgusting cult is dying. They know everyone laughs at their breathtaking stupidity.


As science has continued to show that literal religious claims are wrong, the religious have two choices: Abandon their idiotic and factless delusions, or weasel into a position of claiming that 'it's not literal', as if that is in any way better. How does one work out what is allegorical and what isn't ? Madness.

"It is difficult to free [slaves] from the chains they revere." – Voltaire
