War Hammer
THE PROPHET HAM (eggs over easy)
Before we get into this posting please note the War Hammer above. This is the sign that a major bashing is about to occur.

A few days ago I read where NASA is pretty positive that by the year 2026 they will have proof that we are not alone in the Universe. If this pans out it will be the greatest event in our History. Proof that we are not alone doesn’t necessary mean we will have contacted them just that we know someone is out there. For every important piece of information that is announced there are the naysayers and this time it comes from that horses hind end Ken Ham the CEO of the Creationist Museum in Kentucky. He stated that it doesn’t matter if there are aliens out there because they are not gods’ children and are all going to hell. I actually had to read the statement twice as I thought I had made a mistake the first time. It is incomprehensible that this Troglodyte in Homo Sapien disguise would not only say that but believe it. According to this idiot only man is the child of god and the earth was created especially for us and there are no other beings in the Universe. He is quoted in The Huffington Post article as saying
Jesus did not become the “GodKlingon” or the “GodMartian”! Only descendants of Adam can be saved. God’s Son remains the “Godman” as our Savior. In fact, the Bible makes it clear that we see the Father through the Son (and we see the Son through His Word). To suggest that aliens could respond to the gospel is just totally wrong.
This has to be one of the most idiotically bigoted pieces of tripe I have ever read. The hubris of this man is beyond the pale.
Ken Ham is an Australian but like every other whacko in the world was drawn to the U.S. by that giant nut bar magnet that lies in the middle of the country. How one nation could have so many moronic individuals both home grown and imported is really on for the books, Comic Books. He is also the founder of Answers in Genesis, and expounds such ridiculous ideas as the Earth is 6000 years old and that man and dinosaur roamed the earth together. I guess if you read a fairy tale a thousand times you could end up believing it. Ham has a Bachelors’ degree in Applied Science so you would think he would have a logical outlook on life but instead he took the wrong fork in the road and ended up a Creationists which is about as far from science as the Andromeda Galaxy is from Earth (2.5 million light years). It is somewhat sad that a person schooled in science ends up believing the fairy tales of the bible. If I did believe in god it would seem to me that if he would have created the universe and life then every living being in the universe would be his children. Well you read the quote above but let’s just say that in some very remote way he is right, I hope hell is a pretty big place to take the sudden surge in souls coming its’ way on judgement day.

I keep looking at the quote and for the life of me I can’t fathom someone being so narrow minded as to say that let alone believe it. In my youth I believed in god and went to mass every Sunday then one day when I was older I realized that what religion had taught me was all lies, with the only positive thing being a moral code. If there was a Garden of Eden it was in Africa as all human life arose there. If there was a great flood it possibly occurred when the Black Sea broke through to flow into the Mediterranean. The Tower of Babel was more than like a Ziggurat which became common in parts of Mesopotamia such as Ur. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was due to an earthquake as was the destruction of Jericho’s, walls. Of course when god caused the sun to turn black it was an eclipse. We are now in the 21st century and we know the logical reasons for all the so called miracles in the bible but there are still hundreds of millions who believe the Bible and the Quran to be the spoken word of god.

There is life out there in the Galaxy or the Universe beyond it stands to reason. Asimov once said “that if man is the only life in the Universe then we are freaks and Nature abhors freaks”. Seeing as we are still here I guess we are not freaks after all or Nature would have destroyed us by now.
Well mister Ken Ham I reject you as a prophet and refer you to your own Bible Mathew: 7 verse 15 to 20.

Grousing, My Opinion

IN THE BEGINNING

WAR CLUB

 

Are you ready for this, my first bashing under my War club symbol? The subject of this first in I hope many bashings is none other than “CREATIONISM”. This had got to be the stupidest idea that anyone has come up with.

The first line of Genesis in the Bible states “In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth.” Granted there was a beginning but being a firm believer in evolution something tells me that a God had absolutely nothing to do with it. Having tried in my youth to read the Bible I soon gave up on it as even then it smacked to me of being a fairy tale, a mythology. It could possibly be a great book (I am not a literary critic) but it is not the definitive word on the creation of this our world or of us the Human Species. As I have written previously I much prefer having evolved than being made from a handful of dirt that some old guy spat on and moulded. Very unsanitary.

Some 12 to 15 billion years ago there was a Big Bang (as it is called) and the Universe as we know it came into being. Admittedly it does seem weird that from nothing something exploded into being. I have trouble wrapping my brain around that but then what if there was something and that something was another larger Universe that gave birth to ours. What if time and space are infinite having no beginning and no end? They just are. To me this sounds infinitely more plausible than some bored lonely God creating us for his own amusement and desire to be loved.

Back in February of this year, Bill Nye (The Science Guy) agreed to debate Ken Ham (Creationist) which personally I think should not have taken place as it gives credence to the creationist point of view. Well then I’m not Bill Nye and it was a personal choice for him. On the other hand Ken Ham is merely another religious crackpot zealot looking for some time in the lime light. To me the Bible is merely a book of mythology with Historical references to people and times. There are those who say the Bible is fact because it is the word of God and there are others who say that the Bible should not be taken literally but metaphorically. If I were a literary critic I would put the Bible in the same category as Mother Goose. Or better yet the Brothers Grimm. Another note on the bible is that it should be kept out of reach of children as it is full of sex and violence. If the folks in the bible ain’t begetting they are annihilating.

The very idea that this planet is only 6000 years old and along with the Universe was created in 6 twenty-four hour days is so absurd that it borders on the criminal. Yet there are millions who believe just that. Here we are in the early years of the 21st century and in some areas our progress seems mired down in the 14th century when the world was considered flat and if one sailed to far from land you would fall off the edge and Dragons prowled this nether region. There are still those to-day who believe the world is flat, the space program is all a hoax, and the star are rips in the fabric that makes up the night.

Creationism is very strong in the South and South Central U.S. the region referred to as the Bible belt. If one looks on a map of this region it looks a lot like the old Confederacy and is the centre of American Evangelical Christianity. It is also the area where the so called Rednecks hale from and most of these are semi-literate rural inhabitants. The Bible, guns, and trucks are all that matters to most of them. Oh yeah they also like their moonshine. This is the land of the Billy Bobs, Bubbas, and Ellie Mays, where if you finished grade 5 you are well educated. I realize that what I am writing is somewhat bigoted but I am trying to show the type of individuals that believe in this Creationist crap. Admittedly there are also some highly educated who also believe but thankfully they are few and far between.

 

I try desperately in my life to live and let live and let people believe what they will but when it comes to Creationism I just can’t bite my tongue I have to let loose. Believe in your God and your religion but please don’t take it to the absurd and don’t try to shove it down my throat.
