Creationists get funnier!

4 Apr

Further to my previous post, parts 4 & 5 of the Magic Sandwich Show are now online [EDIT – Part 6 is up now, too]:

Part 4:

Part 5:

Part 6:

It never ceases to amaze me just how far some people will twist the facts of reality merely to paper over the gaping plot holes in their holy books. When Star Wars or Star Trek fans do it, we laugh and maybe urge them to get out of the house more. Here, Shawn believes the Earth is little more than six thousand years old (because that’s the figure you get when you add up all the ‘begat’s in the bible – which must never be questioned); thus he is forced to distort, corrupt and otherwise ignore all data that contradicts that belief.

To quote the good Doctor, “The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views… which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.”

    Why on earth do people put so much trust in to the writings of unknown clerics from the bronze age?

      I only wish I knew. The same people who cling to these dusty old stories written by fallible and primitive men just guessing about the mysteries of the world tend to be the ones who deride modern scientific findings made by learned experts using technologies that would appear as magic to those ancient clerics.

      Plus they spout their ravings using computers and the internet (and all the scientific knowledge that went into producing them) but are completely oblivious to the irony.

      In any event, it makes for good – if painful – comedy.
