Well, I was on YouTube, and I came across an absolute gem. It is another clip from the show where the bigot/sexist/homophobe/racist, Pat Robertson was on – The 700 club (it’s called that because it only has 700 viewers). Here, he is talking about Charles Darwin! Well, I came across that, and I knew that this was going to be worth checking out. So, with that in mind, here is what Pat Robertson had to say about Darwin.
The founder of the theory of whate is called “evolution,” Charles Darwin, was born 200 years ago today.
That’s cool! Happy Darwin day! May you all enjoy the fruits of what a brilliant scientific mind has given us. Okay Pat, you’ve made me happy. Continue.
That means everything, from birthday parties to concerts are taking place worldwide. Sponsored mostly by atheists.
Well, maybe I was wrong! Maybe he is going to be talking about how this is a good thing. I gotta say, I was expecting him to open up with a bunch of anger and bigotry. But here he is being civil. That makes me happy. I might just take back some of the mean things I’ve said about him.
Reporter Gailon Totheroh brings us this look at Darwin Day.
If you open the link above, you’ll see that this guy can’t pronounce names. Nice work. Sorry Pat, what does he have to say?
The bicenntenial events highlight the work done by Darwin. You’ll find Darwin in a party hat, Darwin T-Shirts, even clocks with his face.
This is so pleasant! I really think Pat Robertson may have come back around.
Now it’s a worldwide celebration.
What? It’s cool, yeah, but not something I hear much about. The different speakers will have different color text. That is John West, the author of Darwin Day in America.
For some people now it’s like Christmas for atheists. That they sing holiday songs. Sometimes mocking Christmas songs.
Again, what? Yeah, because nothing shows respect to Darwin like mocking Christmas carols. Okay, this is very strange. The reporter goes on to talk about how there is all this “speculation” about the Theory of Evolution, with no evidence to back it up. Really?! No evidence at all?! Yeah, because the theory of “Intelligent Design” (if only it was) has so much evidence to back it up too, right?
Wells rejects Darwinism, with its randomness and unguided processes, in favor of “Intelligent Design.”
Uh, what? Randomness and unguided processes? Where the hell did that come into the picture? And better question, why should that matter? And Wells (biologist) talked about how there is no proof for evolution (except all the mountains of evidence that we have). So, Intelligent Design has more, right?
Fact: There is absolutely NO evidence that shows that the universe was created by a supreme being. One big theory that was recently debunked was “irreducible complexity.” The idea that something is so complicated that it could not have evolved. To date, there have been NO proven examples of irreducible complexity.
Scientist Stephen Meyer says plenty of that evidence in the detailed complexity of all life.
Oh, go figure! I get to debunk a theory of irreducible complexity! Alright, Meyer, hit me with your best shot.
And what we know from experience, from our uniform and repeated experience, which is the basis for all scientific reasoning.
Stop! Dumbass alert! The basis for all scientific reasoning is the Scientific Method. The idea that you create a hypothesis, test it, and then arrive at conclusions based on the tests. So, this isn’t a good way to open one’s case.
Is that those forms of technology, information technology, informational coding, invariably arise from one and one only type of cause. And that cause is intelligence.
Sigh…here I was hoping that I was going to get a good argument. This man said nothing. Absolutely nothing. For real, not one cogent argument was made in that whole diatripe of bullshit.
Still, scientific documentaries persist in speculations portrayed as evidence.
Yeah, because that Bible thing of yours has so much proof, right? Never mind, it’s NOT SPECULATION, Dumbass! We have plenty of empirical evidence. It’s religion that has no proof. Now, I am not going to post what Pat (The bigot) Robertson’s response was, because he agreed with this idiot reporter who clearly only looked for one side of the story.
I get tired sometimes of having to listen to religious people try and justify their stupidity. This little report was just one of a million documents that try and prove that evolution is a lie. It’s pathetic, really pathetic. The fact is that it is proven, absolutely proven. It is still called a theory because, as all good scientists do, they are willing to be proven wrong. There can be laws of physics, but there cannot be laws of biology. Therefore, we only call evolution a “Theory” because we are open, every single day, to being proven wrong.
Richard Dawkins recently talked about his new book, and he said, flat-out, that it would be so easy to disprove evolution, but it hasn’t been. The geographic distribution hasn’t been disproven. Fossil evidence hasn’t been disproven. The universal genetic code has also never been disproven.
Now, I will say that there are plenty of Christians who believe in the theory of evolution, and I am not making this post attacking you. Who I am attacking is the people who NEED for it to be false. They will argue, tooth and claw, that it is false, because if it is true, then their entire belief system is called into question, and if that happens, then they have to actually do something that so few Christians like to do – think.
That’s the real crime – ignorance. God is a force of ignorance in this world. He is a force that says that you have to do what he says. To hell with asking why, you just have to do. No need for that excessive thinking. That’s just wrong.
I have said it before, I’ll say it again – atheism is the perspective of cosmic humility. People like me are more humble than you Christians could ever hope to be. We accept that we can be proven wrong. Christians, you won’t accept it. Science is disproving your beliefs, all the time, but you will stand like a child in the mall, stamping your foot because you didn’t get your way.
Grow the fuck up!
Happy Darwin Day, everybody.
