Three years ago we wrote James Tour: Creationist Organic Chemist. We discovered him because he was being praised at Pat Robertson’s website. Tour is one of the courageous signers of the Discovery Institute’s Scientific Dissent From Darwinism, which we described here. This is his writeup at Wikipedia: James Tour.
You might think that’s enough glory for one man, but for Jimmy Tour it just doesn’t stop. He keeps attracting praise from the most interesting people. In one of the rare updates to the Jack Chick newsletter, we found: World-Famous Chemist Says Peers Hide from Explaining Evolution! Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Professor James M. Tour is one of the ten most quoted chemists in the world. He holds three professorships at Rice University, authored hundreds of scientific publications and his name is on 36 patents. He and 700 other scientists, affiliated with the Intelligent Design movement, took a “courageous step” in 2001 and began writing of their skepticism of “random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life.” In the worldview of the universe of godless evolution, this was rank heresy.
Heresy! Then the Chick newsletter says:
Tour has made it a practice to quietly poll top scientists in private: Nobel Prize winners and members of the National Academy. What he discovered exposes how deeply Satan’s claws have penetrated our modern education system. Dedicated sinners need a system of lies to believe when they choose to resist God’s truth. Evolution is one of these lies, and is the godfather of many others. As these lies burrow deeper into our culture, the very foundations of civil society begin to crumble.
Frightening indeed! After that we’re told:
Evolutionists distinguish between what they call “microevolution” and “macroevolution.” … Tour agrees that microevolution is common, sometimes helped along by plant and animal breeding to enhance the desired characteristics. But, as he questioned colleagues in his rarified academic atmosphere, he concluded that there is no scientist alive today who understands macroevolution.
Professor Tour went so far as to offer on his website to buy lunch for anyone who claimed to understand macroevolution so they could explain it to him. So far he has no takers.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Maybe no one wants to have lunch with the guy. The Chick newsletter continues:
When he polled many of his peers in Physics and Chemistry departments, he had to do it in private because they dared not publically [sic] admit any skepticism on the subject. So powerful are the politics of the universities that job security depends on staunchly carrying the Evolution banner.
This is only one illustration how far our schools have come from institutions of “learning,” to propaganda mills indoctrinating impressionable, trusting students with Satan’s backpack full of lies.
One last excerpt:
Bible believers must recognize that this is just part of the ongoing war between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness in the last days. We must suit up for the battle, strengthen our own troops with heavy doses of the Truth, and circle the wagons around those who are young in the Lord, especially our children.
So there you are, dear reader. Evolution is at the center of the war between God and the Devil. Which side are you on?
