Fun with fundamentalists

D. James Kennedy Sees ‘Wall of Evolution’ Eventually Tumbling Down

The founder of the Center for Reclaiming America says although the theory of evolution has influenced virtually every school district worldwide, there are signs that its influence is waning.

Dr. D. James Kennedy says the recent announcement by renowned philosophical atheist Dr. Anthony Flue that he now believes in a “creator” poses a major problem for evolutionists. Kennedy, addressing hundreds of people at the “Defending the Faith” conference in Fort Lauderdale this week, said there is a heightened interest in creationism. And evolution, he stated, is losing favor with many people as scientists cannot explain the complexity of the human body.

Nevermind that Flew (whose name they can’t even spell correctly) still believes in Evolution. And that biologists don’t have much of a problem with the complexity of our bodies.

“Communistic evolution, according to the Senate committee that examined it, is responsible for 135 million deaths in peacetime,” he said. “There’s no religion that has a tiny fraction of that many deaths on it conscience.” And it is amazing, he added, that evolution — despite its widespread acceptance — has no scientific basis. “There are scientists who will admit that there’s not one iota of scientific evidence to support it.”

I’m not sure what “Communistic evolution” is. I’m sure it’s buried in the scientific literature somewhere, right after the praise for Hitler.

Next part of the article is about R.C. Sproul (who’s Choosing My Religion video I watched for some reason):

“You hear these secular scientists wringing their hands over the size of the universe? What does that say about us?” Sproul asked rhetorically. “That we’re just this tiny little speck on this out-of-the-way planet in this out-of-the-way solar system when the universe is such a vast expanse. It’s too big for us!”

But foolish men, he said, deny that fact and, instead, respond by trying to “elevate” their own dignity and importance. Sproul said that is a mistake. “Of course [the universe is] too big for us!” he stated. “[But] it’s not too big for God. It is the manifestation of His fullness.”

Well, I’m convinced. My rejection of the Christian faith is based on the fact that the universe is so big. I’ve seen the light!

    “There are scientists who will admit that there’s not one iota of scientific evidence to support it.”

    And there are people who will eat dog poop for $100. So?

    I’ve never eaten dog poop for any amount less than $150.

    I ran across your page because I heard a comment about a Dr. Flew on an Evangelical Christian radio station, and decided to investigate the facts.

    The size of the universe is perfectly consistent with intelligent Christianity… and, in fact, a multiverse would be perfectly consistent with it. And beyond that.

    It is absurd to reject Christianity based upon the silliness and/or stupidity of some of its members. That would be like rejecting all forms of government based on the bad policies of one dumb president.

    “It is absurd to reject Christianity based upon the silliness and/or stupidity of some of its members. That would be like rejecting all forms of government based on the bad policies of one dumb president.”

    Completely agreed. Why did you feel the need to point that out?

    Just so we’re clear, those last three sentences in my post are sarcastic.
