We’re getting worried about David Rives, the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries. Our concern began when 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 rev’s latest video.
Our computer was locked onto this headline at WND: How behavior of gases proves existence of God. Sounds interesting! The actual title of the rev’s video is “Gas in a Vacuum.”
We clicked on it and that’s when we became worried. Why? There are three reasons. First, the rev seems to be speaking very rapidly. And second, the video is only one minute long. The third reason is the subject matter.
The rev breathlessly tells us that according to “cosmic evolution,” stars formed after the Big Bang. But he says there has never been a sighting of a new star forming. The reason, he explains, is that gas always expands in a vacuum, it doesn’t contract to form stars. The bible, on the other hand, says God created the stars and everything else.
Something seemed very wrong. We took a look at PhysOrg and quickly found this: Protostar blazes bright, reshaping its stellar nursery, which says:
A massive protostar, deeply nestled in its dust-filled stellar nursery, recently roared to life, shining nearly 100 times brighter than before. This outburst, apparently triggered by an avalanche of star-forming gas crashing onto the surface of the star, supports the theory that young stars can undergo intense growth spurts that reshape their surroundings.
In 2008, before the era of ALMA [the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array], Hunter [Todd Hunter, an astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Charlottesville, Va.] and his colleagues used the SMA to observe a small but active portion of the Cat’s Paw Nebula (also known as NGC 6334), a star-forming complex located about 5,500 light-years from Earth in the direction of the southern constellation Scorpius. This nebula is similar in many respects to its more northern cousin, the Orion Nebula, which is also brimming with young stars, star clusters, and dense cores of gas that are on the verge of becoming stars. The Cat’s Paw Nebula, however, is forming stars at a faster rate.
How could the rev be so wrong? Or — gasp! — maybe those astronomers are lying to us.
Anyway, the rev is still wearing the same gray bible-boy suit with a dark blue shirt that he wore for the last two videos we wrote about. But who cares? He’s the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! As we said, the video is only one 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!
