I saw the above graphic posted over at TYWKIWDBI, and you can read why Stan posted it here. It’s in reference to the recent comments by Georgia Rep. Paul Broun on evolultion.
When Minnesotastan posts science topics, I love to read what he includes and comments. He’s got an intellectual scientific mind, and I feel I can always learn something from him.
Well, his readership isn’t nearly as likely to mentor yours truly.
I wish I had more time to write about it, but I wanted to point you toward the comments. I would be proud to see many of you — who might have more time — respond to the odd display of ignorance expressing an intellectualism of creationism.
One commenter is Pastor Brad Williams, a guy who describes himself in third person as:
Brad is like a guy who keeps winning the lottery over and over again because, for some unfathomable reason, Jesus really does love him.
A guy has a good church, nice wife and a family, and that’s his criteria for Jesus loving him?
A guy like Williams doesn’t have one iota of empathy for the reverse of that statement, and for that alone, he loses any credibility with me.
He destroys the very essence of what it means to be a “Christian” to me. If a wife, a church and children are the evidence of a graceful god, then the umpteen millions living in otherwise shitty circumstances renders that same god a moron. And it renders those who point at those things as godly as bigger morons.
God loves Brad Williams sooooooooo much, but not the little African boy with HIV laying on a cot encrusted with flies riddled with disease.
God loves Brad Williams but not the little girl screaming in agony with every thrust of some guy who paid her pimp to have sex with her?
Brad Williams won the lottery. He won the ovarian lottery and brags about it.
I wish god existed and I wish he saved me from his ignorant believers.
