Nature Vs Nature SMACK DOWN!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y., aka “AOC”, aka “Socialist Barbie”), has become something of a political celebrity this year, due to the fact that she says things that make people assume she’s a character on Saturday Night Live or the Simpsons and not an actual politician. In several public speeches she declared that the world would end in TWELVE YEARS if we didn’t fix “global warming.” Members of the “Jehovah’s Witnesses” cult immediately quit their jobs and sold all of their worldly possessions in order to wait for the end to come, just as they did each of the 18 times their religious leaders said Jesus was coming back.

Mankind, look upon your destroyer: The flatulent Apocalypse Cow!

AOC has decided that the time to act is NOW- because the earth is going to be destroyed in less time that it takes to get through the line at the DMV by man made global warming (which is now “Climate Change” due to the lack of warming for the past 17 years). One of the causes of this alarming climate change, she asserts, is “cow farts.” Cows are farting, and the government HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Continue reading

Metaphysical Issues of Genesis v Darwin

While this is not part of the case exactly, it is important to understand WHY the YEC is superior to the OEC position for reasons non textual or scientific. Like I always say in my videos- WHY is this conversation worth having? Merely so I can claim to be right about Genesis 1?

No.

And not merely because I think this position is actually TRUE and defensible. I think the earth is round, but I have no desire to debate flat earthers on it, because I don’t think it matters at all.

So why does THIS matter?

Monkey can’t find a reason to care.

Evolution is even more sad and indefensible than the Big Bang

Evolution is even more sad and indefensible than the Big Bang. Now, of course, you need to define evolution so it means what Darwin meant. Too many people water it down until they are merely saying “Change over time.” But everything in the universe changes over time, so if evolution merely means change over time, then it means anything which ever happens. In short, things happen. This is true, but hardly worth saying, and certainly not what Darwin meant when he wrote a whole book on the subject. When I talk about evolution, I am talking about the story that something like a bacteria somehow changed into worms which somehow changed into fish, which changed into lizards, which changed into mammals, some of which are us.

Skeptical Giraffe doesn’t buy your “worms to man” story.

Genesis 1 did NOT Go “BANG!”

Among the Churched Americans who attended public school, it has become popular to try and wed Genesis 1 with Big Bang Cosmology. I used to do exactly this, as I was raised in a Baptist Church and public high school. It made perfect sense that the two models were saying the same things in different ways (before I read Genesis 1 anyway).

While a surface understanding of Big Bang Cosmology and Genesis make it appear as though they can be two accounts of the same event (And again, I used to think so myself) it is not true, even once you get past the ages involved. Just as a few reasons why:

  • Genesis tells the creation of earth before light, earth before sun, and earth before stars. Big bang has the earth as the last in the cosmic creations.
  • Genesis has earth covered in water to begin with, and land being formed after whereas Big Bang/evolution says earth was a molten ball of hot rock with NO water when it formed. Water came millions of year after the surface cooled.
  • Genesis has life first on the land and then in the oceans, where as evolution has life evolving first in the oceans and then moving onto the land.
  • Genesis has dinosaurs (land creatures) being made AFTER birds, whereas evolution says birds evolved FROM dinosaurs.

This list could go on. I once found a list of 28 differences between the two models. More important than the differences is the fact that

Big Bang Cosmology FAILS on its own merits.

Two out of three monkeys are shocked to hear that Big Bang Cosmology fails on its own merits.

Why Hitler Was Not a Christian | Feedback friday

For today’s feedback Friday, we encounter a VERY common claim among the less educated skeptics on the Internet- the idea that Hitler was a Christian, and along with it the idea that we have no reason to reject his claim that he was a Christian. As my reply begins with referring to the comment as a “novelette,”  you should get the idea that is was a HUGE amount of words, even if not a lot of logical thought. Welcome to the internet.

So I chose to focus on this one key point, and to my faithful reader, I said;

Greetings once again!

This novelette has far too much for me to reply to right now, but there were a couple of points which I won’t be able to sleep until I address, and here is the most important:

You: “On what planet does hitler constantly proclaiming his christian beliefs not in any way support the idea that he was christian? What in the world possibly could by that standard? Do we need to find some of his DNA and prove he had the christian gene or something?”

I understand your point, and I can’t fault you for not knowing better, as the America church is barely literate enough to know better. This has been a major frustration of mine for years, but I digress. Your point is a common one- you feel that being a Christian is no more than being a Cubs fan. You say, “Heck, I’ll root for this team,” and that’s all there is to it. I say I’m a Cubs fan and that makes me a Cubs fan. Case closed.

But that is not at all what being a Christian is. That is, admittedly, all it takes to be a Lutheran, or a Methodist, or a Baptist. But choosing to attend a particular church doesn’t make one a Christian any more than going to Wrigley Field makes one a baseball player. Or as we used to say in the 1980’s:

Standing in a garage doesn’t make you a car!

Slavery and Bacon

“Atheists” try to attack the Bible by saying it condones slavery. This is false and has been answered well more times than I can say. If you wish to see how, here is just one of MANY places you can start to learn more: https://youtu.be/o6sTsoGNqe8

And here’s another: https://youtu.be/l2q3fql-BlY

But let’s pretend that it’s true. Let’s pretend that this old, tired, false accusation against the Bible from ignorant internet skeptics is in fact entirely true. Let’s pretend that the Bible gives the old Thumbs-Up to the owning of other people like you would own a cow, a fish, or a toaster. 

The Old Testament condemns the eating of bacon. But I like bacon. I like it very much! Does this mean the Bible must be false or somehow wrong?

An Atheist with more to say on Marriage | Feedback Friday!

Welcome to Feedback Friday! Today’s comment continues a disjointed series of very short rants from a regular caller and long time listener. Under THIS ARTICLE she says:

You cant seriously be trying to defend the statement “atheists have no reason to get married”, that’s insanely absurd.
Marriage has existed for far longer than Christianity has.

To which I reply: Yes, marriage predates Christianity, but NOT a relationship with the one true God. It was GOD who invented marriage back in Genesis. Marriage did not EVOLVE.

But then, neither did we.
