The Drool-o-tron™ startled us with its sirens and flashing lights. The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND). It 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 lunar recession disproves evolution. There’s also a sub-headline: “Exclusive: David Rives notes moon’s distance can only be explained by young Earth.” [*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] It’s an exclusive!
Suddenly, your Curmudgeon had an insight. We noticed that the rev seems to be going down the whole list of clunkers in the TalkOrigins Index to Creationist Claims, and he’s using the list as arguments for creationism. Sure enough, they have an entry for The moon is receding at a rate too fast for an old universe.
Fortified by our new understanding of the rev’s methodology, we clicked on his video. It’s actual title is “Lunar Recession.” As expected, the rev explains to his drooling fans that the Moon is moving away from the Earth a few inches a year. That means it was recently so close to the Earth that it would have either shattered or crashed into us! So the Moon couldn’t have existed as long as those scientists say it has. The universe is young! (He doesn’t explain why he’s assuming a uniform rate of recession, when creationists always dismiss “uniformitarianism” in geology.)
The rev is wearing the same the same outfit he’s been wearing for weeks — a gray bible-boy suit without a necktie. This is getting disgusting. Yes, he’s still the world’s cutest rev, but he really ought to change his clothes from time to time. This video is only two 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!
