Rev. David Rives — All about Light

The world’s cutest rev has once again triggered the Drool-o-tron™. 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: Light: More than just what you see with your eyes, but the rev’s video has a shorter title: “The Wonder of Light.”

The rev tells us all about the electromagnetic spectrum. Did you know that there’s more to light than the colors you can see in a rainbow? Hey, that’s what he says. The rev also says we can use light to know what distant planets are made of. That’s amazing!

We can study the universe this way because it’s orderly and God has given us the tools. But the universe wouldn’t be orderly if everything was the result of random chance. An orderly universe is what we expect if God created it — and if God created us to study it.

Just like the last video we posted about, 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. God has given us the tools? Did God send down from heaven the telescope and the spectroscope?

  2. Among theocrats, their gawd always gets to claim *all* of the credit for not doing *any* of the work.

  3. Yes we have all these amazing scientific tools. Watch me ignore all of them to make up creationist nonsense.

    Someone doesn’t like unbelievers, I’m shocked!

  5. Is the appearance of life on Earth one of those orderly things? How about the order of forms of life as if it is a consequence of evolution, rather than with no discernible pattern? How about the light from the stars telling us about many millions of years? (Is an OE?)

  6. Alas, TomS beat me.

    “But the universe wouldn’t be orderly if everything was the result of random chance.”
    Natural selection, which drives evolution, is the exact opposite of random chance. Today I won’t discuss the argument “our natural reality displays order hence God”. I only want to point out that creacrappers should be the last ones to use it. That’s to say, if they cared about consistency and coherence like intellectually honest people do.

  7. One of the several documentaries aired on British TV last night to mark the sad passing of Dr. Stephen Hawking included an interview with one of his sisters, who described something of their childhoods. Regularly featured at the family dinner table were wide-ranging discussions and arguments about a host of topics, including moral questions such abortion and capital punishment. But, as Hawking’s sister explained, the best topic for engaging them as young children was (I quote nearly verbatim) ‘Theology, because you don’t need any facts.’

    I suspect Creationists, whose knowledge is confined to whatever their intuition tells them, actually do recognise their lack of ‘facts’–but answer that deficiency with the simple expedient of making them up…

  8. IMHO the ultimate riposte to the Creationist view of ‘human exceptionalism’:

    “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.”

    — Stephen Hawking

    My intellectual free fire is this … I’m done putting up with Trump! The irrationality, the constant drama, the bull-in-the-china-shop behavior. Enough already. Even Ken Ham would do better, its that bad.

    I am reminded of Hawking’s concern about Artificial Intelligence taking over.
    Here’s a simple task for AI. Analyze objectively anti-evolution. For example, take on the tasks that the creationists refuse to do.
    Formulate a consistent alternative explanation for the variety of life without mentioning common descent with modification.
    Make the Analogy of the Watchmaker into a sound argument. What does it tell us about the Intelligent Designer(s)?

  11. It sometimes seem like a losing battle.

    From Jonathan Chait, New York magazine:

    “[Hitler’s] loathing of Bolshevism, his twisted Darwinian mania for the acquisition of land and resources, and his fixation with his own military genius all led him to a decision that was both inevitable and impossible.”

    First paragraph.
