We wonder if 'The Honourable Rick Perry, Governor of Texas', who is to give the keynote at this year's E3 conference in the United States of Americashire was guffawing loudly at the sight of Spore
top-man, Will Wright's presentation? During it Wright compared Spore
to users to God - we assume he meant the white-bearded deity.
Governor Perry takes a vaguely similar view to Wright's - that God actually created the world (we imagine that Perry's tongue might be lolling a little while Wright's is firmly stuck in his cheek). Perry takes the whole thing a little extremely however, having added his support to Intelligent Design
Wright's take is somewhat more amusing (or "outright, damned blasphmerizing!" if you're of the 'school' of Intelligent Design'). His presentation, reported by Joystiq, included such facts as:
In the span of 18 days, Spore Creature Creator
users were able to create more than 1,589,000 species.
This took God seven days to accomplish.
This means that Spore
people are only 38% percent as efficient as God.
We're not sure where Will got his figures from though. In fact, we did some research via the highly-visible Answersingeneis.com
and found that, "The Bible tells us that God created all of the land animals on the sixth day of creation
. As dinosaurs were land animals, they must have been made on this day, alongside Adam and Eve, who were also created on Day Six (Genesis 1:24-31)", (there are more great 'facts' from Answers at the bottom of this story).
So, not seven days, Will - only one day. Meaning that Spore Creature Creators
are merely 5.5% as efficient as the Yaweh.
Anyway, Gov Perry is due to do his speechifying on Wednesday the 16th.
Thanks to Joystiq
.As promised, more great facts from Answersingenesis.
1) If God designed and created dinosaurs, they would have been fully functional, designed to do what they were created for, and would have been 100% dinosaur.
2) This fits exactly with the evidence from the fossil record.
3) The Bible, however, makes it plain that dinosaurs and people must have lived together. Actually, as we will soon see, there is a lot of evidence for this.
4) God sent two of every (seven of some) land animal into the Ark (Genesis 7:2-3; 7:8-9)?there were no exceptions. Therefore, dinosaurs must have been on the Ark.
