Rev. David Rives — God and the Space Race

The technicians who keep things running here haven’t yet finished installing a replacement Retard-o-tron™, but even without it we managed to find the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries. It’s a featured article in WorldNetDaily — described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page.

WND’s headline is Amid America’s space race, God appears. That’s quite a headline! We had to see this one.

The title of the video is Walking on the Moon. The rev spends most of the video’s precious time retelling the history of the Space Race between the US and the old USSR. We assume that you know all about that, but it’s good to hear it from the perspective of a holy man like the rev.

Then, right near the end of the video’s two minutes, the rev reveals the startling news. We won’t ruin things for you by telling you here what this is all about, but it involves Wernher von Braun. What a career that guy had — from launching V-2 rockets at London, to launching manned missions to the Moon, and then — the crowning achievement — he’s quoted by Rev Rives.

As we’ve done before with the rev’s videos, please feel free to use the comments section as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Okay, now go to it.

  1. Truly, a former Nazi and SS trooper proclaims the gory mess that is Rives’ brand of creationism.

    …Well, in the UK, von Braun is better remembered for his crimes on behalf of the the Third Reich than for his later career in the USA.

    I watched it. Then I watched it again. Either I blinked each time God appeared, or else there’s no truth in their advertising.

    Can I get a refund for my wasted time?

    Werner von Braun is quoted as having said, “There must be design and purpose behind it all.” Clearly, there was design and purpose behind the V2 rockets, Hitler’s concentration camps, and other products of Nazi Germany. Old Werner had a reputation for being devoted to superb design, without concern as to the ends to which great technical design might be put. Tom Lehrer wrote a great little song about von Braun back in the mid 1960s . ” ‘Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down? That’s not my department’ says Werner von Braun.”

    Just because something shows evidence of design doesn’t necessarily make it good. And the fact that higher life forms evolved without any designer doesn’t necessarily make them or the evolutionary process bad.

    No refunds, gnome de net. It’s just the usual religious bait and switch. You’ve seen it before, and you’ll see it again, mainly because they haven’t got anything else.

    Tom Lehrer performing his “tribute” to Werner von Braun:

  6. von Braun was inducted into the Creation Science Hall of Fame. You shouldn’t click on that link. Don’t do it. If you do, don’t surf around their website. If you do surf around, don’t check the list of deceased inductees.

  7. I don’t like those guys at the creation science hall of fame. My last comment there got rejected. Guess what the topic was about? How evolutionists suppress evidence.

    Those unfortunate entries in his résumé are Darwin’s fault.

    I will never get my wasted time back,you are a bad person for making me watch that.

  10. Our Curmudgeon notes, of Wernher von Braun’s hitch in the SS:

    Those unfortunate entries in his résumé are Darwin’s fault

    Of course! How could I have overlooked that?

    I’m starting at petition on Number 10 to have ole Charlie exhumed from Westminster Abbey and put on trial for High Treason.
