Rev. David Rives — The Miracle of Tears

The impending hurricane with the possibility that we might lose power and be out of action for a while suggested the need for another Intellectual Free Fire Zone, and just then then the Drool-o-tron™ 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: Why tears are a sure sign of God’s hand. That’s exactly what we were looking for! The actual title of the rev’s video is “Tear Production.”

The rev says that the production of tears is due to a system illustrating irreducibly complexity. Tears are incredibly complex! They moisten the eyes. They remove bacteria. They’re essential! Evolution can’t explain how such a complicated system formed. It couldn’t have been by random chance! That’s why you can’t believe in molecules-to-man evolution!

The rev is still wearing the same gray 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 is four minutes long 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!

    Matthew – 136 deaths in Haiti as of now. I guess Rives’ god was too worried about the hopelessness of evolution to care about actual people.

  2. WorldNutDaily strikes again!

    And so does the Rev. Rives. Letting that spavined old nag “irreducible complexity” out of the barn to take one more dump in the pasture shows the irredeemable intellectual bankruptcy of creationism, whether it calls itself “intelligent design” or not.

    Time and again, supposedly “irreducibly complex” systems have been shown to be reducible to simpler ones. Time and again, creationists have either denied such discoveries or pretended they hadn’t been made. It’s our old friend the “God of the gaps” at work: anything that hasn’t yet been shown to be entirely natural never will, and so just must have a supernatural basis.

  3. “Evolution has no satisfactory explanation….”. Satisfactory to insufferable little twits live Rives, no. Satisfactory to people with a functioning brain, not so hard.

  4. It couldn’t have been by random chance!
    Backed up by so much evidence from experimentation conducted by creationists for centuries.

  5. The eye was intelligently designed to provide a living for my optometrist, I suppose.

    “A or B?” A…. or B? A………….. or B?

  6. There are things which evolutionary biology does not have a satisfactory explanation.
    That is true of just about every science. That’s why people study science: there are things to be learned.
    But because there is a weakness in evolution, that does not mean that somebody has an alternative. Creationism/Intelligent Design does not have an explanation to fill in for evolution, and does not have any interest in finding any explanation.

  7. What’s so miraculous! I tear stuff all the time, mostly by accident.
