We won’t write a long post about today’s news, because there’s no need for that. As soon as you’re done here you’re going to click over to Mother Jones, a rather liberal magazine, and read Texas Lawmaker Defends Bill That Would Protect Creationists On The Job.
Before we start, you may need some background about Zedler’s creationist legislation in Texas. You’ll find it in our most recent post on the subject, WND Supports Zedler’s Bill.
Now that you’re up-do-date, here are some excerpts from the Mother Jones interview with Zedler, and except for the names at the start of each paragraph, the bold font was added by us:
Mother Jones: Are you a creationist?
Bill Zedler: Evolutionists will go “Oh, it just happened by chance.” Today we know that’s false. Today we know that even a single-celled organism is hugely complex. When was the last time we’ve seen someone go into a windstorm or a tornado or any other kind of natural disaster, and say “Guess what? That windstorm just created a watch.”
Perhaps now you’ll understand why we titled this post as we did. Here’s one more question and answer, and after that we’ll leave you on your own:
Mother Jones: Ok. [Long pause]. Is a windstorm analogous to a genetic mutation?
Bill Zedler: Well, not really. I don’t want to go that far. Let me put it to you this way: When we talk about people with faith, there is no greater faith than that life began by chance, with the amount of knowledge that we know now.
To answer the question in our title, we really don’t know if Zedler is the dumbest man in Texas; but he’s definitely a contender for that honor. And from what we’ve been seeing, in Texas that really is an honor.
