Rev. David Rives — Black Holes

We were thinking that we needed another Intellectual Free Fire Zone, when suddenly the Drool-o-tron™, with its sirens and flashing lights, alerted us to the latest video from the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries, posted at the website of WorldNetDaily (WND).

Our computer was locked onto this headline: What is a black hole, and why can’t light escape?, but the rev’s video has a shorter title: “What is a black hole?” Anyway, your curiosity is aroused, isn’t it?

The rev explains, in his own way, what a block hole is and how they are detected. Then he gives a weird explanation of why light can’t escape a black hole. From there he discusses the types of black holes, including the supermassive type like the one in the center of our galaxy. He explains that they didn’t form naturally.

Than how did they appear? He says that God made them, 6,000 years ago. Neat, huh?

The rev is dressed in a black blazer with no necktie, and he’s got the edge of a handkerchief showing in his coat pocket. Very classy. There’s no doubt about it — he’s the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! The video is about two and a half minutes long (before the commercial at the end). Go ahead, click over to WND and watch it. You might learn something.

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!

  1. Dear Curmudgeon, I did not take your advice and click on the rev link. I suspect the probability I would learn anything from someone who thinks black holes were made by a sky fairy 6000 years ago is indistinguishable from zero.

  2. Typo correction:
    The rev explains, in his own way, what a block hole is…

    We’re sure you meant to type “block head“, referring to himself, of course.

    Speaking of black holes, it looks like this week we can start to see the Trump administration swimming around a political black hole. Will lit break into pieces or go in one piece?

  4. It’s actually a pretty good video and the analogy may be a bit weird, but so are black holes. The only blooper is not too important: one definition of a singularity is a point in spacetime with infinitely high density, not “extremely high density”. Of course the god of the gaps (“science can’t explain young stars near the super black hole in the centre of the Milky Waÿ hence goddiddid”) is as stupid as ever, especially combined with the non-sequitur “hence the Universe is 6000 years old, the evolutionary worldview is wrong so I am no kin of no monkey”/
    What struck me most is this Godwin:

  5. The Rev has convinced me. I am no longer an atheist! Only the Omnimalevolent Creator of John Zande’s and Stephen Law’s demonology can explain the Rev’s existence, far beyond the scope of any natural process

  6. My thanks to mnbo for the composite portrait of the Rev Benito Graham, who famously made the brains run on slime…

    Not particularly surprising, but maybe because it comes from the famous Mayo Clinic, it might say someting to a evolution deniaer: this explains how the fact that” all living tings are related”, the Mayo Clinic finds it worthwhile to study zebrafish to advance human medicine:

  8. Of course zebrafish resemble humans. After all, they were crafted by the same Designer. Didn’t you know that this is the right way to explain *every* similarity?

  9. Cats resemble humans too (at least mine does). Here is proof:

  10. But that explanation – being crafted by the same – is different from being designed. And it is saying that the omnipotent is constrained by a rule that products of the same crafter turn out similar.
    How is theis explanation compatible with the explanation of being designed?
    Is it only the differences between creatures which are designed?
    Moreover, the products are not similar to the same degree. It isn’t as if some creatures are products of more or less similarities. For example, chimps and other apes are much more similar to humans than are any other creatures.

    Speaking of Black Holes – check out the new book “The Faith of Donald J. Trump by Brody and Lamb.

    It has a comic foreward by our creationist friend Eric Metaxas who demonstrates his biblical knowledge almost matches that of President Trump.
    People who understand this [that it is faith not acts that make a Christian] therefore understand the concept of grace and are willing to give grace to those who–as they–are morally imperfect. But those for whom God is a moralistic taskmaster (some will call them Pharisees) do not understand this and predictably rage against it. The elder brother in the parable of the Good samaritan is an infamous example of that extremely sad ilk.

    First he misunderstands who the Pharisees were, but more amazing is that there is no elder brother in the good Samaritan parable – maybe he was thinking of the prodigal son parable – or maybe he just doesn’t know anything.

  12. That’s why the craftsman used more similar DNA. (I’m not sure they understand the difference between craftsman and designer) for what those silly evolutionists regard as more closely related species; more similar DNA for more similar kinds

  13. A Russian contribution to the Free Fire Zone:

    Why would Putin want to nuke Florida?

    I can think of a few good reasons why he should, starting with Disney (I say nothing of Mar e Lago).

    And then I remember that the Sunshine State is also home to our Curmudgeon, his inestimable La-BOR-a-tory and the invaluable Droolatron, and must therefore hope for restraint from Mr. Putin.

  14. Indeed, Megalonyx. The barbarians know that the Curmudgeon’s headquarters are vital for the defense of Western Civilization.
