We haven’t had one of these for a while, and this one is worth a moment or two. It’s a new video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.
The rev’s latest is titled Is Evolution Science…Or Religion? What a great question! To answer it, the rev turns to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. The definition he gives is the fourth in the dictionary: “a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith ”
To get to that, he has to skip over and ignore definitions that don’t serve his purpose, like “the service and worship of God or the supernatural,” and “commitment or devotion to religious faith or observance.” He likes definition number four. And he never bothers to give a dictionary definition of science.
The rev explains that evolutionists believe in the Big Bang. You didn’t know that was part of biology, did you? The rev knows. They also believe that humans evolved over millions of years. But none of those are facts! Science is supposed to be observable and repeatable. No one witnessed those things, and we can’t reproduce the Big Bang in the lab. We can’t create life either, despite “millions” of attempts.
Believing in that stuff, says the rev, requires faith. And evolutionists hold to their faith with ardor. That fits the definition, so obviously it’s a religion. You can’t argue with the dictionary!
The video is only a minute and a half long, Go ahead and click on it — if you want to know how foolish you really are.
Afterwards, feel free to use the comments as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone.
