What Do You Think? (Or Do You Just Not Think At All?)

I saw a documentary in which the following exchange took place.

Q: “Do you believe in Global Warming?”

A: “Yes, I do!”

Q: “Why?”

A: [Pause. Blush. Look all around, as if there might be a teleprompter handy. Shrug. More pause. And then…] tee-hee-hee!

Or we might ask, “Do you believe in Evolution?” And the usual answer will be something like, “Oh, yes! Why, Evolution’s scientific!” We might then ask, “How do you know it to be true?” Pick one:

“I saw it on TV.”

“That’s what they tell me.”

“I read about it somewhere.”

Or, best of all, “Whaddya mean, how do I know it’s true? It’s science! That’s how I know! Science is always true! Always! Yhaaaaah!” [Falls backward, flops uncontrollably; pink foam issues from ears]

They won’t believe something is true because the Bible says so. But something must be true because “Science” says so.

Churches please take note.

  1. Answer truthfully,sir. Do you believe in God? Of course not. NO!. All right,you are free to leave.

    Oh, one more question, Sorry. Do you believe in AGW, or man caused climate change?.

    NO!!! Course not. Send that man to the stake, along with his wife and kids, and burn them all!!!

  2. Malcolm Muggeridge on evolution: “I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially to the extent to which it has been applied, will be one of the greatest jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity it has.”

  3. The ‘theory of evolution’ is aptly named. They call it a ‘theory’ because it’s impossible to prove. Of course, the ‘scientific’ community has begun to exchange truth for possibility, thereby making all their theories fact – like climate change.

    1. Why study nature, with all its unruly complications, when you can just study a computer model that you made yourself and will give you the answers that you want?

    2. Now you sound like me. Whenever anyone asks me if I’m talking to myself, I reply: “Of course. That’s how I guarantee I’ll get the answer I want.” 🙂
