Rev. David Rives — Excited About Uranus

It started out as a quiet Curmudgeonly day, but then the Drool-o-tron™ suddenly aroused us with its sirens and flashing lights. The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND). The Drool-o-tron™ had found the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.

Our computer was locked onto this headline at WND: Finding Uranus was huge surprise. Wowie — the fabled Seventh Planet — the one that dare not speak its name. Hey — we had an earlier post about the rev and that planet — Rev. David Rives — The Wonders of Uranus.

The actual title of the rev’s new video is “Sir William Herschel, a Path to Discovery.” He begins by telling us about Herschel’s observations of Saturn, its rings, and a few of its satellites. Then, right at the end of the video, he springs the surprise on us — Herschel discovered a new planet — Uranus! Oh the joy!

There isn’t any creationism in this video, so we don’t understand the rev’s purpose — it’s probably that he finds Uranus to be irresistible. The rev is all dressed up for this one. He’s wearing one of his bible-boy suits, but without a necktie. He’s the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! The video is longer than usual. It lasts for almost two minutes — but the climax at the end makes it one of the rev’s best. Go ahead, click over to WND and be thrilled.

As we always do with the rev’s videos, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Consider this to be an opportunity to make some Uranus jokes — but you must do so tastefully. Okay, the comments are open. Go for it!

  1. Just in case you haven’t picked it up, retired cricketing superstar Shane Warne has been indulging in his other specialty — opening his big mouth to reveal the ignorance within: “‘I’m saying we started from aliens’ – Shane Warne questions evolution.”

  2. David should merge his Uranus talk with Ritzheimer’s temper tantrum youtube short from when ritzcracker pushed a carton of lube and “toys”, sent to the Oregon refuge miltants by a fan, off a table.
    I think Rives would really make his point if he included that.

  3. Actually, Herschel discovered the planet Georgium Sidus – – – at least that’s what he named it, pandering to the king. Non-British people did not exactly like that name, but the name Uranus did not come into common use until after Herschel’s death.

    Edmund Halley was just as bad – he named the star Cor Caroli after King Charles II. Halley’s name stuck, unlike Herschel’s, probably because it wasn’t as obvious.

  4. So me being a self-declared expert on the Good Rev must weigh in. The purpose of the video obvious. Uranus declares the Glory of God.

  5. Ed reminds us: “the name Uranus did not come into common use until after Herschel’s death.”

    In order to encourage young people to be interested in science, I suggest that the Seventh Planet’s name should be changed again — to Yo-anus.

  6. I suppose I am flattered that the good Reverend Rives finds wonders in my anus, though I admit my hypocrisy when I say that I am not optimistic about discovering anything reciprocal, nor am I looking forward to leading the search party for said wonders. In any event, I should think he would have the decency to wine and dine me with the blood and body of JC before he goes spelunking in my backside. Am I asking too much here?
