Rev. David Rives — Behold the Behemoth

The Drool-o-tron™ has been keeping us busy. 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: Behemoth of the Bible: Elephant or dinosaur? The video is actually titled: “Behemoth: The Elephant?”

The world’s cutest rev is still in South Africa. He’s riding around the bush country in a jeep or something, dressed like a little boy wearing an Indiana Jones costume for Halloween. He shows us some pics of an elephant and he asks if that could be the behemoth mentioned in the bible. But then — Spoiler Alert! — he tells us that the elephant’s tail doesn’t mach the behemoth’sdescription. Only a dinosaur does!

If you want still more information, there a Wikipedia article on the Behemoth, including the relevant scripture passages. They don’t agree with the rev, but what did you expect? The rev is actually on site, so he knows what he’s talking about.

The video is about two minutes long (before the commercial at the end). Go ahead, click over to WND and watch it. It’ll be time well spent.

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. Oh dear. Why weren’t there dinosaurs on the ark? Because stratigraphically the dinosaurs are always present before the elephants, or hippos or rhinos. Just curious as to how creationists handle this question.

  2. Dave Luckett

    och will: They handle it thus,

    “Stratigraphically? That’s some kind of fourteen dollar word that some fancy-dan evilootionist is using to block the way to Heaven. Don’t mean nothin’.”

  3. The Good Rev mentions one very strong piece of evidence for divine design: the ears of the elephants have the same shape as the continent of Africa! That can’t be a coincidence. If you’re not convinced by now it’s because you don’t want to be convinced – like me.

    @FrankB that cracks me up! Did he actually say that? I’d love to get a grant to go to the Amazon and do research on whether the shape of the ear of a tapir resembles the shape of the continent of South America. That would be good research, would help creationism – and get me a fabulous paid holiday.

  5. I wonder, is a behemoth a moth named after Michael Behe?

  6. Take comfort in knowing that if we do discover aliens, Ken Ham will find a reference to them in the bible. Using his “worldview”, “proper interpretation”, and a healthy amount of B.S. apologetics.

  7. Sorry Curmie, replied to the wrong article.

    1st Bible scribe: Be he moth?
    2nd Bible scribe: Not yet. Still just caterpillar.

    The ears of an elephant look like a triangle to me. Africa certainly does not.
    India does look like a triangle (but only since 1948…) but you have to rotate the elephant’s ear with at least 90° to get a resemblance.

  10. I have always heard that the behemoth was a hippo, not an elephant. And that “tail” was a common euphemism for something else.

  11. @Bewilderbeast asks: “Did he actually say that?”
    Almost. He did mention that the shapes are the same and he did end the video, as always, with “The Heavens Declare The Glory of God.” I just drew the obvious conclusion and of course, me being the greatest fan of The Good Rev, are totally entitled to it.

  12. To take “The Heavens Declare the Glory of God” literally tells us that there is intelligence in the heavens.

  13. @KeithB: Latin has two words for tail. One is cauda, and the other is… well, you guessed it.

    And here I thought “Behemoth” was the original title of Frank Herbert’s elephantine novel Dune. It’s certainly big enough; I always wondered how they kept the paperback editions from flying apart before they ever reached the bookstores. ;D
