It’s always a delight to visit the website of WorldNetDaily (WND). As you know, WND was an early Buffoon Award Winner. We’ve described them as a flamingly creationist, absolutely execrable, moronic, and incurably crazed journalistic organ that believes in and enthusiastically promotes every conspiracy theory that ever existed. It’s in their honor that our jolly Buffoon logo adorns this post.
They just posted Will scientists who reject God face greater judgment? It was written by David Lightsey, described as “a food and nutrition science adviser with the National Council Against Health Fraud as well as Quackwatch, combating nutrition and health misinformation on a national level. He is also a voting member with the Creation Research Society [Hee hee!] and an adjunct college professor in nutrition.” We found him listed at Bakersfield College, a California community college. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
There is a question I have had for many years based upon my 30 years of studying, writing, working and teaching in the science field. Are those who have a science degree and have rejected Christ going to be held more accountable before God based upon Romans 1:20? “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”
A most serious question, and worthy of your close attention, dear reader. The nutritionist says:
The holder of a science degree has had a high level of exposure to irreducible complexity, information science and special design, clearly illustrating the existence of God and His attributes. How will this impact judgment before God, if one has been exposed extensively to these realities and still rejects Him? … Additionally, how does this rejection impact one’s science discernment and judgment, and is this one of the reasons for so much junk-science?
Wow — irreducible complexity, information, and design — all in one sentence! Ignoring them destroys your judgment, and that’s the cause of junk science. After that he tells us:
[People with a science degree] spend years, if not a lifetime, being exposed to an unlimited amount of detail of special design, and many still reject it. As a result, will their condemnation be greater? I believe so.
It’s only fair. The nutritionist continues:
Many will respond that what they see is death, dying and decay and that this does not present a valid picture of an omniscient God. But considering Genesis 3, it does, and understanding what Genesis 3 [about Adam & Eve getting tossed out of paradise] has done to the original orderliness of creation will assist the scientific understanding of the things around us as well as ourselves, not hinder it.
Then he tells a long story about how cholesterol was once thought to be unhealthy, but now it isn’t. He says:
We are all aware now that the 2015 U.S. dietary guidelines no longer demonize cholesterol, and there is a growing body of evidence illustrating saturated fat is not as problematic as once thought either. As usual, it is always just a matter of time before science catches up to Scripture. If decades ago, researchers used more discernment, which is the ability to think biblically, these long-standing food restrictions would not have been imposed.
Having made his case, the nutritionist ends with a quote from a preacher, identified earlier as “John MacArthur,” presumably John F. MacArthur, a young-earth creationist preacher with a radio show:
As Pastor MacArthur points out, “unfortunately, discernment is an area where most Christians stumble. They exhibit little ability to measure the things they are taught against the infallible standard of God’s Word, and they unwittingly engage in all kinds of unbiblical decision-making and behavior. In short, they are not armed to take a decidedly biblical stand against the onslaught of unbiblical thinking and attitudes that face them throughout their day.”
That’s it, dear reader. The message is clear — you’re doomed to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire!
