I have long been an opponent of modern Christianity, I don’t think that’s much of a secret. I believe there is biblical precedent for such thinking (Matthew 7:3-5; 1 Corinthians 5:12,13; 1 Peter 4:17). For this reason I have endeavored to point out the idiocy of Christianity.
That being the case, I have largely skipped over the idiocy of the world. I expect the world to be stupid so it doesn’t bother me. I care very little about the creation/evolution battle raging out there. It’s an issue of faith (Hebrews 11:3) so why bother arguing it?
But the other day I read this article in Wired Magazine and was stunned by the absolute goofiness of it. It makes me think that wheenie Christianity is getting a leg up because the world is now adopting our strategies! Allow me to illustrate two points.
1) The article posits that using the word “theory” is detrimental to the case of evolution. Therefore, they should just go ahead and switch the definition of the word “theory” and call it “law” from now on.
This violates fairly basic principles of science to just change a word’s meaning for the sake of winning an argument. The origin of our world is still a theory and always will be because you can’t test the beginning. You weren’t there.
This reminds me of Christian-arguing idiocy. When we get stuck we just pull out our Lexicons and start changing what words mean. If we don’t like what a person says about our theory of justification we’ll just change what verses and words mean until we’re right.
2) The article also states that evolution is a law because we have flu vaccines. It is childish to say that flu vaccines prove the world was created by evolution. Proving microevolution hardly proves that I’m descended from a monkey.
This is similar to the idiocy of Christianity that bases spiritual principles on pure silliness.
IF Sinners go to hell.
AND All Democrats are sinners.
THEN All Democrats go to hell.
This is very similar to
IF Flu vaccines evolve.
AND People need flu vaccines.
THEN People evolved from monkeys.
The fact that evolutionists have stooped to our intellectual level surely means we’re winning.
Either that or we’re all losers.
Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Corinthians 1:20
