This was in the New York Times August 31, 2005:
I like creationism better than science. I like debates with the lack of argument. If you believe in creationism – there’s no argument because you’re right – regardless of facts.
Science is hard to study. There are so many books that you have to read and understand in order to be a scientist. To be a creationist – there’s only one Book – and you don’t really have to understand it. Now which is more appealing to you?
Think of creationism as mental streamlining. All those pesky questions and inconsistencies you have in science – all go away with one sentence. The sentence,”God created the world 6,000 years ago, any evidence to the contrary is wrong.” *SIGH* See how a big weight is just lifted off your shoulders by that? All that scientific inquiry causes stress – and stress causes grimacing – grimacing is ugly – therefore scientific inquiry makes you ugly. Don’t be ugly – you were intelligently designed to be beautiful. But not sexual – that’s bad.
Anywho, The Science Channel or as I like to call it – The It’s-Just-A-Theory Channel – won’t tell you about creationism. Because they are propagating lies.
There are 2 million species recorded on this planet.
Two of every animal were saved on Noah’s Arc.
Adam and Eve – you godless monkey!
The planet Earth is around 4.4 billion years old – has gone through atmospheric changes both violent and long term.
There is a rock and fossil record.
The evolution theory is supported by the mutating of viruses. Those are changes we have witnessed in our life time.
La la la la – I’m not listening.
See – it’s so easy!
