Science vs. Creationism: New Proof on CSPAN!
There's been a resurgence in the media lately concerning the "debate" between creationism and the indisputably accurate theory of evolution. Ken Hamm, an insane entrepreneur who founded the Creation Museum in some backwater hick state not worth mentioning, debated on CSPAN the geeky-looking but immeasurably smarter Bill Nye (aka "The Science Guy"). It was embarrassing for anyone with a functioning cerebral cortex to watch the debate because it was sort of the same as watching Einstein debate Larry the Cable Guy (in this analogy, Larry the Cable guy is Ken Hamm and not Bill Nye "The Science Guy.")
Why do people insist on clinging to unsupportable beliefs? I'd ask Ken Hamm, but he would just say they are completely supportable beliefs because the Bible is literal proof of everything he says. So I won't ask Ken Hamm.
Faith and spiritual beliefs and voodoo are fine. They have a cultural place in history and everyone has a right to believe in crazy shit. Who am I to judge them? After all, I believe outer-space aliens are conspiring every day to misplace my keychain, especially on mornings when I am hungover from consuming too much melatonin and Benadryl. But let's be realistic here: If you believe that science should support your crazy, paranoid, delusional faith and magical beliefs, you're a dumb twat ... with all due respect.
But Jesus will forgive you for your stupidity. It's what He does.
