Shining MORE Light on a Darwinist Deceiver

This is a sequel to a sequel. Earlier, I wrote about anti-creationist tinhorn Paul Braterman and provided links to his deceptive diatribes. We can use his attacks as examples of bigotry and bad reasoning. April 1 is a good day for this (Psalm 14:1), I reckon.

In this sequel to a sequel, we have additional thoughts about a deceptive anti-creationist and his foolish misrepresentations of creation science.

The earlier article linked above also included links to other articles on the subject, including how Snopes is biased and unqualified, and they didn't bother to "fact check" Braterman's rant on their site. Bad Paulie put burrs under a passel of saddle blankets, didn't he? If you see him, ask why, if evolution were true, would there be a need to misrepresent creationists and to abandon reason. Here, we have a short article from the Institute for Creation Research that has some thoughts worth considering. 
Paul Braterman, emeritus professor of chemistry at the University of Glasgow, recently claimed online that creationism “meets all the criteria” for a “conspiracy theory.” He says creationism offers “a complete parallel universe with its own organisations and rules of evidence, and [creationism] claims that the scientific establishment promoting evolution is an arrogant and morally corrupt elite.” Is this fair?

First, we should note that calling someone a “conspiracy theorist” is a quick and easy way to avoid having to deal with the intellectual arguments for his position. It is tantamount to calling him crazy. And we all know that attempting to reason with crazy people is pointless, right?

As for that last sentence, that fits well with my refusal to "debate" those with Atheism Spectrum Disorder at length. Anyway, you can read the rest of this short article at "Are Creationists Conspiracy Theorists?"

Not Love is Not Love

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

While browsing social media, I came across the hash tag, "love is love", which was used in reference to homosexual relationships. This is nothing in which rational people can take pride. People hijacked the word "gay" as well as the rainbow (which they perverted for their own style), and are in open rebellion against God — their behavior is also unnatural. While it is irrational for atheists to wrap their identities in their rebellion against the God they pretend does not exist, it seems even more irrational for people to seek their identities in how they use their genitalia. It's mighty simplistic to write it all off as "love is love".

People are using the term "love is love". This is simplistic nonsense. We can take it to its logical conclusion.

As we have seen in the news and on the web, ever since the US Supreme Court redefined "marriage" to include same-sex relationships, there has been an increase in other deviant groups who want their sexual preferences recognized, accepted, and even celebrated. Those of us who believe in God's standards are called "haters", "homophobes" (a nonsense term, I don't phobe any homos), and other terms to provoke negative emotions. Such people indulge in bigotry while claiming to be victims, but they cannot change the truth of God's Word. You may want to read (or download the audio version) "A Journey from a Homosexual Lifestyle to Christ".

Let's see if my efforts to take "love is love" to its logical conclusion are successful:
  • A woman wants to marry a tree, and it meets her emotional and sexual needs. Love is love, even with a plant.
  • A woman married herself, and then "cheated" on her vows. Love is love, even when done solo — and then someone else joins in.
  • Pedophiles want to be called "Minor Attracted Persons" (normal people refer to this sexual abuse of children), and want to be included under the LGBT umbrella. Love is love, right, little Johnny?
  • There are reports of those who want sex with animals to have acceptance. (Do your own research, I don't want to include links; I even saw but refused to follow links to gay porn with animals.) Love is love, even with the horse you rode in on.
  • Can't forget the folks who want polyamory and polygamy, can we? Love is love is love is love (stop me when all of your "significant others" are covered) is love is love...
I lack belief that these people have real knowledge about the meaning of love. That is a gift of God, and he established how it must be used.

There are apostate "Christians" who want to be "inclusive" under the facade of "love", allowing homosexual relationships and other deviant behaviors. You're not showing God's love or truth, you're enabling them, you savvy? Not too long ago, someone wrote for the New York Times an article with false accusations about the book of Leviticus. I have two links for you about that. First, this video by Dr. James White which starts at 49 minutes, 45 seconds. Second, an insightful article by Dr. Albert Mohler, "Leviticus in The New York Times: What’s the Real Story Here?"

Love is love? Not a chance. These things have nothing to do with love.

Lust is lust. Mental illness is mental illness. Perversion is perversion. Stupid is stupid. Sin is sin. These people need to repent. There is true love, forgiveness, and acceptance in Jesus Christ. God is love, and he has made himself known in his Word.

Mike Rowe Faces Intolerance of Opposing Views

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

People who watched the television show Dirty Jobs that highlighted people who perform unpleasant and often hazardous work that allow the rest of us to keep our clothes and fingernails tidy know the host Mike Rowe. (The camera crew deserves high marks for getting involved as well!) If they doin't know him from the show, they may know his voice but not his name: this former opera singer uses his fabulous voice to narrate many documentaries and such. He is a professing Christian and an outspoken political Conservative, and uses his intelligence and wit to discuss his views. Someone may say that he's not a "real" Christian because he uses the occasional profanity, but I don't have such insight into someone's soul.


Some tinhorn wanted Mike Rowe fired from "How the Universe Works" because of his personal views

I did not know that he also narrates a show called How the Universe Works, which promotes secular views on that subject, until a reader of The Question Evolution Project flagged me about a recent attempt to get him fired from that show. No, it wasn't the current trend of sexual misconduct, nor was it involving poor job performance. Rather, some tinhorn does not like his personal views. Among other things, he was called a "science doubter". Listen, people who use epithets at Christians, Conservatives, Darwin doubters, global climate change doubters things like "science doubter/denier" are liars. Such accusations are not made with evidence. Those tactics are used by people who want contrary views suppressed, as you can see by their track records.

There are several popular narrators who are involved in documentaries that do not necessarily reflect their views. I've seen material narrated both for and against the Bible done by the same narrator. Same with movies. Anthony Hopkins did an outstanding job as Paul the Apostle in the 1981 miniseries Peter and Paul, and he is not even a Christian.  Was there an objection? Hopkins also played the part of Benito Mussolini, and I don't rightly recollect hearing about protests by Italian Fascists because Hopkins was not one of their own.

The fatuous complaint against Rowe is actually quite common when atheists and evolutionists ostracize Christians and especially biblical creationists from scientific research. The claim that atheism is required to be a scientists is risible even on the surface, and has been refuted many times. Arbitrary assertions of worldviews are not facts, nor are they evidence. Evolution, climate change, and other controversial subjects are protected by secularists. The most frequent way to do this is to keep contrary views out.

To read the article about Mike Rowe and his great response to his critic, click on "Mike Rowe Destroys Woman Who Wants Him Fired For Being ‘Ultra-Right Wing Conservative’". Watch for where he calls for evidence and relevance. I suspicion that Mike would be a very good creationist if he examined the material from the sources. Also, I think I'll set up the DVR and check out his new show.
