It practically writes itself

Thanks to JC for both the title and the topic for today's entry.

Perhaps you've often wondered what the world was like when God created it 6000 years ago. You know, when dinosaurs and men roamed the earth together. (Even though dinosaurs aren't mentioned in the Bible, we know that God must have just forgot to pass on that little tidbit of info to his earthly vessels.)

What's not remarkable about this story is that such a museum exists...no, unfortunately, this sort of delusion is all too ordinary. What I find fascinating is the pseudo-intellectualism behind which these fanatics hide.

Faith must trample underfoot all sense, reason and understanding - Martin Luther.

There is no worse screen to block out the Spirit than confidence in our own intelligence - John Calvin.

Despite the teaching of these Christian leaders, our fearless creationists have decided to use (giggle) reason to convince you that they are correct! Just listen to these amazing quotes: "I think it shows (nonbelievers) the other side of things", and "I don't think it's going to be forcing any viewpoint on them, but challenging them to think critically about their evolutionary views". Yes, that's right...proponents of a mystical all-knowing god are telling you to think critically! That logic will lead you to reject scientific evidence and accept a fairy tale! You too can go to the museum and learn how ancient fossils and the Grand Canyon were created just a few thousand years ago in a great flood, how dinosaurs fit on Noah's Ark, and how Cain married his sister to people the earth.

When a mystic offers you "logic", you should treat it with the same caution that you'd treat a meal served to you by an unwashed sewer worker.

In other news, I've actually decided to watch a TV show this season: 24. I have to admit, I'm pleasantly surprised, and I might even go on to say that I'm glad most of America is watching this show. It demonstrates just how close we are to civil rights violations on a massive scale. I've mentioned it before on this blog...all of the laws are in place, all we need is a terror attack or two on U.S. soil and we're suddenly hosting detention camps for suspicious Americans, using the prescribed "interrogation" techniques on citizens, and shrugging off the loss of civil rights as the "price of security." Sure, the tv show is a fantasy, but the writers are spot on about that much at least. I know I sound like a wacko, but mark my words: we are a couple explosions removed from a police state.
