The fun never stops around here. The Drool-o-tron™ suddenly called to us with its sirens and flashing lights, and 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: How ocean salt gives a clue for Creation. We’re always excited by such clues, so we had to take a look.
The actual title of the rev’s video is “Too Much Salt!” What does that mean? The rev says that if evolution really happened, it would require millions of years, but there’s evidence that there hasn’t been that much time on Earth. For example, every year, the oceans get saltier. If the Earth were billions of years old, the oceans should be far saltier than they are now. At current rates — gasp, that’s uniformatarianism! — it would take only 42 million years to get the salt in the oceans to their current level. And it didn’t take anywhere near that long. Noah’s Flood accounts for most of the oceanic salt. So evolution is bunk. It requires too much faith!
There’s nothing new here. The rev’s salt “problem” is an ancient creationist clunker. The TalkOrigins Index to Creationist Claims debunks it here. It’s also debunked in How Good Are Those Young-Earth Arguments? along with a bunch of Kent Hovind’s other arguments. Scroll down to number 24 for this specific item.
The rev is wearing his gray bible-boy suit, and he’s not wearing a necktie. It doesn’t matter what he wears. He’s the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! This video runs about 2 and a half 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!
