Also, the idea that the earth can only be 5,000 years old -- especially when we know that people were building structures with sewer systems 11,800 years ago: https://www.archaeology.org/news/8171-191108-turkey-sewer-system

American Fascism lives in Christianity, which is why it is time for this wicked faith to go the way of Moloch and Mammon.
