The Drool-o-tron™ startled us with its sirens and flashing lights. The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND). Our computer was locked onto WND’s presentation of the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.
Because we’ve been recently slimed by WND’s re-postings of the rev’s older videos, we were skeptical, but our skepticism diminished when we saw WND’s headline: “Oort cloud – phantom or fact? We haven’t posted about that before. But we’ve learned that WND changes its headlines for repeat postings, so we looked at the actual title of the rev’s video — “Phantom Cloud” New Name for “Oort Cloud”.
We haven’t posted about that either — well, not that video. But we have posted about the Oort cloud before. It’s the proposed source of new comets. The rev has boldly renamed it the Phantom Cloud.
Creationists don’t like Oort cloud because the liquid and gas component of comets that regularly orbit the Sun will eventually evaporate and they won’t be able to exhibit their distinctive tails. Therefore, they say comets shouldn’t exist any more. Like the formation of new stars, a source of new comets upsets their dogma — see AIG: Comets Prove the Universe Is Young.
Nevertheless, the Oort cloud is a new subject for the rev, so we were curious to see what he had to say. Alas, he doesn’t tell us anything we haven’t seen before. He points out to his drooling fans what we already know — the Oort cloud hasn’t yet been observationally confirmed. It’s the same stuff AIG said in the post to which we just linked. That’s not surprising. All creationist keep recycling the same old arguments.
The rev is wearing one of his bible-boy suits — with a necktie — and he’s still the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! The video is his usual 90-second presentation — before the commercial. Go ahead, click over to WND and watch it.
As we always do with the rev’s videos, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Okay, the comments are open. Go for it!
