A FORMER rocket scientist will argue the case against the theory of evolution at an event in Maryborough tomorrow night.
Wowie — a rocket scientist! Well, former rocket scientist. Who is this genius? The story continues:
Dr Mark Harwood, a former satellite system design engineer, now lectures for Creation Ministries International.
Impressed? Sure you are. He seems to be a fine example of the Salem Hypothesis, according to which engineering types — and that often includes computer scientists — have a tendency toward the creationist viewpoint. Here’s his bio at the Creation Ministries website: Dr Mark Harwood. It informs us:
During his university years, Mark was something of a ‘closet Christian’ because he could not understand the basis of his faith. He assumed that God must have created through the processes of evolution (theistic evolution) but that idea provided no meaningful basis for Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross. When he was confronted on the historical truth of Genesis he realised that the early chapters of Genesis were actually true and fundamental to the Christian faith. His subsequent journey of investigation convinced him of the theological and scientific basis of the Genesis account of creation.
That must have been quite a journey. Let’s read some more about the big revival meeting:
He will present his evidence for creationism at the Maryborough Wesleyan Methodist Church from 7pm tomorrow.
Evidence — that should be exciting! One more excerpt:
Organiser Dr Ian Truscott said the controversial event helped to dispel the idea that scientists and doctors did not believe in creationism. “Most evolution writings insult creationists as being ignorant,” he said.
So, dear reader, if you find yourself on the underside of the flat Earth this weekend, get on over to the Maryborough Wesleyan Methodist Church and enjoy some of that good old fashioned, down-home, foot-stompin’, psalm-singin’, floor-rollin’, rafter-shakin’, old-time creationism.
