Strange Day Free Fire Zone

There’s nothing major to report so far, but we have two minor items that should provide some entertainment. They are:

1. We found a new video from the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries. It’s posted at the website of WorldNetDaily (WND). The thing is titled Flat-earth believers being deliberately misled.

The rev reminds us that he’s not a flat-Earther, which we already knew — see Rev. David Rives — Not a Flat-Earther, but we watched it anyway.

The video is almost 5 minutes long. The rev attempts to explain a few ways to demonstrate the spherical shape of the Earth. There’s nothing of interest here, except for one brief passage at 1 minute 40 seconds, where he tells us that the president of the Flat Earth Society is a self-proclaimed evolutionist, and “that’s one strike against him in my book.” Then, at 3 minutes 10 seconds into the video, he says that because the flat-Earth guy isn’t a bible believer, it’s a troubling warning sign that there may be a cleverly designed plot of evolutionists to infiltrate bible-believers to confuse them.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The rev suspects that those wicked evolutionists are spreading the false doctrine that the Earth is flat. But what he never tells his drooling fans is the indisputable fact that the bible is not only creationist, but from beginning to end it’s also a flat-Earth book — see The Earth Is Flat!

That’s it for the rev’s video. The cutie-pie bible boy is attempting to show that, at least compared to the Flat Earth Society, he’s a sound thinker who always proclaims The Truth. Now for the next item:

2. In the Pine Bluffs Post of Pine Bluffs, Wyoming (population 1,129) we read Community Calendar. It’s dated 23 June, so the information is too old for you to use, but among the community activities they list is this:

Lighthouse Assembly of God is hosting a free Creation Seminar from 6:30-8 p.m. “From a Scientic [sic] Perspective” presented by Dr. Kent Hovind, one of the foremost authorities on science and the Bible. All materials are being provided at no cost. Please call 307-245-3822 for more information or drop in during the next session at 117 W 5th, Pine Bluffs, WY 82082.

No Curmudgeonly commentary is necessary.

Now 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!

  1. I think creationists have an inverted scale where the less you know about science, the more authority you’re allotted. Someone should try and ask them how they would rank the credentials of Ray Comfort, Kent Hovind and Ken Ham.

  2. “The video is almost 5 minutes long.”
    For me that’s a no go area. If the Good Rev can’t make his point in 90 seconds he’s not worth watching. Condensed drooly crap is entertaining, drawn out it is boring.

  3. I see that Louisiana continues to lead the way back to the Middle Ages: David Duke, former Ku Klux Klan leader, to run for Congress

    This seems to be the link the Rev is referring to:
    The Earth is flat? What planet is he on?

  5. And what about the serious Bible-believing anti-evolutionist geocentrists?

    What good evidence does the rev. have about whether the Earth is in motion in a yearly orbit around the Sun? How does he explain the geocentric passages of the Bible?

    Nice summary. Ham certainly didn’t meet expectations for his grand opening, and I’m sure it’s headed downward in attendance from opening day. Surely he was very much expecting school busloads of children to attend, but hopefully that won’t materialize. I’m sure his detractors will find their assessment of his project was absolutely correct, but Ham will still make off with his retirement fund and perhaps move his carnival tent to yet another location, and I do not feel in any way sorry for him.

  7. For the IFFZ:

    From Trump’s acceptance speech in Cleveland: “America is one of the highest-taxed nations in the world”

    From BBC News:

    Compared to its peers in the developed world, the US hardly comes across as a high-tax country. Taxes made up 26% of the total US economy in 2014, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. But for Sweden, they constituted 42.7%, for Germany 36.1% and for the UK 32.6%. Based on available data, only three OECD members had a lower figure than the US: Chile, South Korea and Mexico.

  8. According to Trump the USA is the only nation that counts, so technically he’s right.
