YES, we live in blessed times. The stars themselves are aligned in a rare triple conjunction to declare The Truth™ you’ve been hiding from all your life.
We present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from an article in WorldNetDaily (WND) which brilliantly defends their intellectual champion: Kirk Cameron bashed for Darwin campaign. It’s subtitled: “Media gets snarky over effort to debunk evolution on college campuses.”
Wait — we saw a hand go up. Okay, you in the back — what’s your question? You want to know who’s Kirk Cameron? We wrote about him here: Kirk Cameron: World’s Dumbest Human?
Okay, let’s get on with it. This is actually a follow-up to our earlier report on WorldNetDaily, Ray Comfort, and Brain Death. The bold font was added by us:
A campaign by Ray Comfort and actor Kirk Cameron to give away 100,000 copies of a special edition of Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species” on 100 university campuses in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the seminal book’s publication in November already is drawing a caustic reaction from media.
Jeepers, we can’t imagine why that should be. Let’s read on:
The special release of the book challenges the theory of evolution with a 50-page introduction that includes an overview of Darwin’s life and presents a case for a universe created by God through arguments such as the structure of DNA and the absence of species-to-species transitional forms.
Ah, now we understand. This “special release” has an introduction that amounts to a pile of poop. Okay. We continue:
The introduction to the special “Origin of the Species” release, which can be read on Living Waters website [not really, the link is broken], also shows how great scientists of the past such as Nikolas Capernicus, Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon and Albert Einstein, believed in God’s existence
Let’s pause for a moment to grasp what’s being said … Isaac Newton believed in God, therefore — what? Evolution is wrong? Okay. Here’s more:
In his video presentation of the Darwin campaign, Cameron says, “An entire generation is being brainwashed by atheistic evolution without even hearing the alternative; and it’s radically changing the culture of our nation.”
No one ever heard of Noah’s Ark? That can’t be right. Even your Curmudgeon knows the tale. Moving along:
Comfort [that’s Ray Comfort] previously told WND “atheists are going crazy” on Internet forums in response to the “Origin of Species” plan, saying, “How can we stop this? We’re going to have a book burning.”
Comfort’s Living Waters [that’s Comfort’s ministry] is working on the project with Answers in Genesis, Campus Crusade for Christ, Teen Mania and the Alliance Defense Fund.
Wow! What a stellar lineup! This is more than a triple conjunction. The whole creationist firmament is involved. Another excerpt:
“Atheism has doubled in the last 20 years among 19 to 25 year olds. So young people are being brainwashed by this stuff,” he [Comfort] said. “All we want to do is give an alternative.”
If Comfort is the alternative, the devil has already won. Here’s our last excerpt:
“So many young people are being convinced that atheism is right, that evolution is right, there’s no god, there are no moral absolutes,” he said. “Who cares if you marry a dog? What’s the big deal? And that’s what atheism believes, too. It’s very sad, and we’re going to do our best to fight back in November.”
This is a good point to break away from WND. We can only handle a limited amount of this stuff If you want to read it all, click on over there.
