We were feeling the need for another Intellectual Free Fire Zone, and then the Drool-o-tron™ suddenly called to 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: Does ‘fossilized’ collagen disprove evolution? A strange question. We had to take a look.
The actual title of the rev’s video is “Millions of Years?” Ah, that’s got a good sound to it. The rev says that the protein collagen will decay after 900,000 years, even under the best of conditions. Then he mentions the work of Mary Schweitzer, which we’ve discussed in Dinosaur Fossils Found with Hot Red Meat?
It’s an old creationist clunker. The TalkOrigins Index to Creationist Claims debunks it here. But the rev says all these discoveries of “soft tissue” mean that evolution is impossible. He then tells us the only thing that does make sense — the bible timeline. The earth is only 6,000 years old, Noah’s flood buried the fossils, etc. Nothing new here.
The rev must have done several of these videos at the same time, because he’s still wearing the same blue bible-boy suit he wore the last time, and again he’s not wearing a necktie. That doesn’t matter. He’s the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! This video runs a little over three minutes before the commercial at the end. 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!
