16. And yet these same "creationists....."
Edited on Mon Jan-18-10 01:15 AM by DeSwiss
...will immediately launch themselves into the hospitals and doctor's offices at the first sign of serious injury or illness. The same institutions and individuals whose very livelihoods are based upon the understanding and acknowledgment of the truth and reality that living material mutates and evolves. And thus, a constant vigil of analysis of the evolution of germs, cancers and viruses must be undertaken by scientists in order to monitor this evolution of disease in order for new curative approaches and drugs to be discovered and created to insure the efficacy of their treatment and whose understanding of this "evolution theory" will result in a favorable outcome. As in: they're still alive to tell the tale.

Then, after the principles of science and the scientific method has saved their "god believing asses," they give credit not the EMT's, not the hard-working nurses, nor the lab techs, not the CRT, PET scan and/or MRI techs. And sometimes not even the doctor who intervened while their personal savior was nowhere to be found. While their god (the same all-knowing and all-powerful god who could have prevented their calamity in the first place) stood idly by and watched them writhed in pain. Until the nurse came with her science and gave you a shot (the unappreciative bastards). No, it was their personal savior what done it. Their prayers and their personal savior -- not any of those others with their silly science and evolution. They were just doing his will. He let these scientists use his magic and do all the hard work because he was busy washing his hair, I suppose.

As with most of the directives and standards that are to be found in bibles and religious doctrines, once again like clockwork these "so-called believers" totally ignore their beliefs when it is their asses on the line. When pain and death looms over them and they see that the end of their lives is within reach, they choose the scientist. They choose the ones that they don't believe. The ones whom they say don't know what the fuck they're talking about with all their goddamned evolution. But apparently they're good for something after all. Yep. Saving their pitiful lives when they know their god would have left them to slip away with another one of his "mysterious ways" cop-outs. So why didn't they depend upon their personal all-powerful god that they genuflect to under pleasanter circumstances, this time? Why? Why? Why?

Because deep within they know that they prefer living. And they also know from experience they had better take action themselves. Because they know that the god of the gaps won't come to the their rescue -- no matter how much lip-service they pay, because that god is imaginary.

And yet, as if stuck in a badly produced B-movie, we are looped in time with these believers of nonsense. And forced to watch and listen to their inanities as they ignore their own words and beliefs. People who claim to believe one thing and yet openly practice another. Which is technically called LIVING A LIE. And the god of the gaps once again fills the largest gaps that there is -- the ones' in believer's heads.

- And of course god still won't cure amputees.....

Mark 16:15-18 (KJV) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
