We’re warning you right up front: this one comes from RenewAmerica, where Ellis Washington’s columns have been appearing ever since he stopped writing for WorldNetDaily for reasons unknown to us.
What we found there today is titled Evolution’s Achilles’ heels — top scientists scrutinize the weakness and falsehoods of a generation of spurious science. Achilles’ heels? Achilles only had one vulnerable heel. Ignoring that, if that, if the title sounds crazy otherwise, wait ’til you see what the article says. It’s written by a preacher named Michael Bresciani, about whom we’re told: “Rev. Michael Bresciani is a Christian author and a columnist for several online sites and magazines.”
We wrote once before about one of his articles — see Creationist Wisdom #397: Hambo Won the Debate. Here are some excerpts from his latest, with bold font added by us:
After the great Scopes Monkey trial circa 1925 the world eased back and decided that scientists and forensics would continue to carry the ball about origins, while those who thought the Bible was true would be sent to the back of the room where the dummies sit. Real Christianity never fosters stupidity and soon those who believed the Bible started to use the empirical methods of the scientists to uncover amazing truths about origins that early forensics either overlooked or were not willing to see.
Bible believers used the scientific method after the Scopes trial? BWAHAHAHAHA!. Then the rev says:
The result of years of ‘creation science’ has accumulated since 1925, but it has run head on directly into what is today called – political correctness. PC is the equivalent of something better known as – ‘don’t confuse me with the facts.’
Yes, quite a pile of creation science has accumulated. Let’s read on:
There are a lot of factors that fuel the present world view of evolution. Beyond peer acceptance is money. … Money may still be what makes the world go around, but it is also still the best way to bring brilliant minds to a complete stop.
The only thing holding creation science back is a lack of funding. Hey, if creationists get an ark-load of funding, then their brilliant minds may stop too. This is confusing, but the rev continues:
The pathology of ‘evolutionary science’ is not where the problem is found, but it is the philosophy of evolutionary science that is flawed right out of the gate and the suspect science itself stumbles in the long run. Regardless of specious theories, spurious explanations, missing evidence and pure guesswork; at the heart of the evolutionary model is a blaringly simple error that PC keeps hidden from view – at all cost.
Yes, we must suppress The Truth™ at all cost. Here’s more:
When anyone, scientist or ordinary lay person make [sic] statements about what took place before the dawn of man and recorded history, some of it allegedly going back over 450 billion years, they have left forensic science behind and crossed into the realm known as – prior philosophic postulation.
Evolutionists talk about what was going on “450 billion years” in the past! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! And we know all about “prior philosophic postulation” — that’s what ol’ Hambo’s outfit talks about as the “secularists” pre-supposition that the laws of nature were the same in the past as now, rather than being wildly different to accommodate the creation account in Genesis.
We’ll skip some silliness about bovine flatulence — although it somehow seems relevant. Then we’re told:
If conclusions are formulated by a predetermined belief that creation could not have an intelligent designer – that is prejudice – not science.
The rev is oblivious to the fact that if he does away with predetermined belief, he has completely dismissed creation science. Moving along:
There are literally reams of arguments that evolutionists should never use, but there are at least two great philosophical points that no evolutionist has yet been able to answer. … Without elaboration they are
1. The (millions or billions) of missing links.
2. The lack of an explanation concerning the origins of the gases and or particulates that went into the ‘big bang’ – who or what created them?
Aha — the rev has spotted the two biggest weaknesses in the theory of evolution! But wait — he has even more:
In order to thrive the evolutionary model depends on a scientific view that is supposed to answer the two greatest questions that mankind has ever asked. First, is the question of origins – where did the planet and the life on it come from or originate? Second, is the question of destinations – where is it all leading and what will be the future of mankind.
Darwin never answered those questions! Another excerpt:
The element that evolution dismisses is the idea of intelligent design. If God is responsible for everything then evolution is finished out of the gate. It becomes the greatest hoax of all time rather than the theological or the scientific explanation of origins.
We’re barely halfway through the rev’s essay, but this is where we’re going to quit. We can’t take any more. The rest of it is a massive sales pitch for a video from something called “Creation Ministries International.” If you have more endurance than we do, we urge you to click over to RenewAmerica and read it all. Then tell us if we left anything out that was worth mentioning.
