The day began on a jarring note — the blaring sirens and flashing lights of our Retard-o-tron™, and the blinking letters of the wall display that said WorldNetDaily (WND). We found our computer locked onto WND’s presentation of the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.
WND’s headline is This necessity defies evolution. What necessity could that be? WND’s sub-title is: “David Rives quotes Isaac Newton in argument for a Creator.” Wow — Isaac Newton!
The video’s title is Advanced Optics: the Ultimate Necessity. It’s less than two minutes long, during which the rev tells us that the eye couldn’t possibly have evolved one step at a time — it had to be working all at once! Not only that, we’re told that the great Isaac Newton asked: Did blind chance know there was light and make our eyes to take advantage of it?
We looked around to verify that quote, and found it at Wikiquote here, as part of Newton’s essay on atheism. It’s real. They quote Newton like this:
Did blind chance know that there was light & what was its refraction & fit the eys of all creatures after the most curious manner to make use of it? These & such like considerations always have & ever will prevail with man kind to believe that there is a being who made all things & has all things in his power & who is therfore to be feared.
The rev quoted a different part of that same essay here: Rev. David Rives — Isaac Newton, Creationist.
This is powerful stuff, dear reader, and you don’t want to miss it, so click over to WND and be amazed!
As we usually do with the rev’s videos, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules.
