More crazy interpretations of religion

Postby Brian Jordan » Wed Oct 29, 2014 1:15 pm

It's not just YECs who read their religious books, look at the scientific world and mix the two to come to absurd conclusions. Look at this, coming from the Prime Minister of India
“We can feel proud of what our country achieved in medical science at one point of time,” the prime minister told a gathering of doctors and other professionals at a hospital in Mumbai on Saturday. “We all read about Karna in the Mahabharata. If we think a little more, we realise that the Mahabharata says Karna was not born from his mother’s womb. This means that genetic science was present at that time. That is why Karna could be born outside his mother’s womb.”

Modi went on: “We worship Lord Ganesha. There must have been some plastic surgeon at that time who got an elephant’s head on the body of a human being and began the practice of plastic surgery.”
