You know how these things start. Blaring sirens and flashing lights! The Drool-o-tron™ was calling us. The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND), and our computer was locked onto WND’s presentation of the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.
WND’s headline is Did Jesus refute the ‘gap’ theory?, and their subtitle is “David Rives discusses common compromise between Bible, evolution.”
If you want some background on the gap theory, Wikipedia has an article on it: Gap creationism. They say:
[The "Gap Theory" is] a form of old Earth creationism that posits that the six-day creation, as described in the Book of Genesis, involved literal 24-hour days (light being “day” and dark “night” as God specified), but that there was a gap of time between two distinct creations in the first and the second verses of Genesis, explaining many scientific observations, including the age of the Earth. It differs from day-age creationism, which posits that the ‘days’ of creation were much longer periods (of thousands or millions of years), and from young Earth creationism, which although it agrees concerning the six literal 24-hour days of creation, does not posit any gap of time.
As you can imagine, the rev favors young Earth six-day creationism — and those are 24-hour days. No gaps, no nonsense. The actual title of the video is Mind the Gap! The Gap Theory According to Jesus. It’s the rev’s usual 90-second presentation, followed by a commercial. But 90 seconds is all the time the rev needs to give you a totally convincing argument.
Not only that, but you get to see the rev wearing a suit and a necktie. This performance is one of his bible-boy best. He’s so cute! You gotta watch the video!
Go ahead, click over to WND and take a look. Don’t pretend that you’re not going to watch it. We know you find the rev irresistible.
As we always do with the rev’s videos, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Okay, the comments are open. Go for it!
