Nothing Rather Than Something Free Fire Zone

Yes, dear reader, you read our title correctly. It’s the reverse of the question creationists are always asking: “Why is there something rather than nothing?” Their claim is that you can’t answer their question but they can — the answer is Oogity Boogity! — and that’s their “scientific” proof of creationism. Weird, huh?

We search for creationism news all day long, but despite their bizarre blog posts, podcasts, and YouTube videos, they never discover anything that would support their bizarre “theory” of creationism. Oh, they claim that they’ve made such discoveries, but their claims are never true. In other words, creationists have nothing rather than something, which means that they’re in deeper philosophical doo-doo than they can even imagine.

If that doesn’t interest you, no problem! We’re declaring another Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Use the comments for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.

We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!

  1. New development in Intelligent Design theory, the Swiss Alps looks like a painting. Painting implies a painter.

  2. It’s been quite a week down around Lenox, AL!

    Kent Hovind was convicted, in a non-jury trial, of domestic violence and the protective order issued against him has been extended. He and his handler Ernie Land appear to be determined to spend the rest of Kent’s life fighting the conviction, if necessary.

    We found out after that that that Kent also found another woman to sleep with and call his wife, Sandra Princess Sawyer.


    Sandra has a lot of concerned family members regarding her hasty decision to move in and go to work for Kent Hovind as his scheduling secretary and “wife”. She has a 10 year old daughter with her and 16 year old son and another 5 children outside the home and older.

    She comes from the mega-IFB church in Haines City, FL, Landmark Baptist, and 3 previous marriages to men with criminal histories.

  3. Good grief, Robert Baty. Jesus’s conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well comes to mind. And his specific instruction at Matthew 19:9. Hovind, of course, ignores the latter. That is, the reported words of Jesus Himself are of no weight with Kent Hovind, where they conflict with Hovind’s wishes.

    But Sandra Sawyer, now. Annie Lennox said a mouthful:

    “Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused”

    Well, they do have that doo-doo, it ain’t nothing and it suits them well.

    FFZ, a friend of mine said he went to the Ark Encounter … I was not surprised. One of the few tidbits he shared was the counter showing how many people are in the park that day, 4,900. Point being the counter to our Ark watch was well handled publicly so that is the top of mind for him to share.

  5. Encounter implies an encounterer.

  6. Robert Baty, thanks for the update. Verily, Dr. Dino has found a match made in heaven.

  7. She comes from the mega-IFB church in Haines City, FL, Landmark Baptist, and 3 previous marriages to men with criminal histories.

    Good Grief! You’d think she could have landed herself a more suitable husband.

  8. So here’s what happens. I innocently post a nostalgic photo of the moon landing on facebook. You can guess what happens next. I truly don’t know if this species will manage to survive.

  9. I innocently post a nostalgic photo of the moon landing on facebook. You can guess what happens next.

    They’re asking wonderful questions like how did the camera get there when nobody was on the moon? Great question, but why would they think nobody knows why, and how hard is it to look it up anyway? At least the if we evolved from monkeys why are there still monkeys is a decent question that shows some thought process going on. I despair for the conspiracy nuts. There is no hope.

  10. Seriously, you guys wouldn’t believe how many moon landing deniers there out there. I’m completely surprised. What the heck is going on in Murica-ville?

    There is an advantage in having a simple audience. An audience which is hard to understand, one which habitually applies critical evaluation, one which has a long attention span, is not favorable.

  12. @TomS if people think “who took the pictures” is a mic drop gotcha question, what looming disasters await us with deepfake technology? It’s scary!

  13. And how much of it is simply due to malicious propaganda.

    “In 2019, Almost All of Facebook’s Top Christian Pages Were Run By Foreign Troll Farms”

  14. @richard
    And if such-and-such is being done by a conspiracy, who knows what is the goal of the conspiracy?
    So-and-so wants to become the first dollar trillionaire?
    Or somebody will get pleasure in convincing a large number of people about the shape of the Earth (it’s really a donut)? Or convincing people that quantum mechanics is really true despite its obvious impossibilities?

  15. @TomS I dunno. Could be all of the above. Somehow, idiots are multiplying like rats.

  16. @richard
    And multipling are the people who are eager to pander to the idiots, and those who are eager to take their cut in being an intermediary.
