A question about fundamentalists[edit]

In the Gospels there is the parable about the servants who are given coins and two of whom manage to generate more money and get rewarded, with the third doing nothing and getting punished.

What are the fundamentalists actually doing to improve life in general/helping the weak, the lame, the sick and all the other groups? (talk) 16:33, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Why I removed what Proxie just added.[edit]

Because this blog that she used to back up her arguments has a giant link to a white-pride hate site at the top. Way to go, Proxie. If I knew the way/I would take you home. 13:27, 16 June 2013 (UTC) Apologies. I was looking at the wrong parts of the article. Someone else added that stuff.If I knew the way/I would take you home. 13:30, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

We shouldn't be quoting all those blogs as if they're authorities on this subject. I was about to remove the quotes until I saw PowerSmoke had already done the same. Please keep them out. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 13:36, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
I stand corrected on my correction -- Proxie did add those links to the hate site. (Here, too) Try to be more careful, Proxie. If I knew the way/I would take you home. 13:39, 16 June 2013 (UTC)


Just for the record: a search for "fundamentalist christian" on a search engine starting with a 'G' returns this as the second result, right after the Wikipedia page on Christian fundamentalismWikipedia. JorisEnter (talk) 17:55, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Concerning the Fifth of the Five Fundamentals footnote.[edit]

It's not clear to me how the footnote to the fifth of the Five Fundamentals shows that "This is a critical building block for Christian fundamentalist movements that deny responsibility for global warming, since the end of the world is near." The link does not mention global warming, except perhaps indirectly in Dale Robbins's phrase "...or any views which are politically incorrect." Can someone please clarify, or provide a better link?

Fundies, the Bible and dinosaurs[edit]

The Fundies say that the Bible is literally true and the word of God (despite containing more contradictions than a political election manifesto - due mainly to it being a collection of texts created and then refined over centuries).

The Bible makes no mention of dinosaurs. Therefore dinosaurs never existed.

Nor does the Bible make reference to guns. Thus the Second Amendment should not exist.

Where are the flaws in this? ('Wide eyed innocence' btw) Anna Livia (talk) 14:22, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
