Slapping Down Christians and Creationists

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Todd Friel of Wretched Radio had a couple of segments that I wanted to use, so I contacted him for permission. I could have gone the Fair Use route, preferred the direct approach. He gave me the go-ahead, and I'll give you the link to the full episode after the video-style excerpt. On July 16, 2018, Mr. Friel posted on that Twitter thing that Christians should pray for Ken Ham because he is attacked so much: Atheopaths, old earthers, and other owlhoots did the usual piranha thing and swarmed it. Notice the reply just below his message for one example. I was on the prod and challenged the writer: "He deserves it. All of it." Who are YOU to decide that he deserves it? By what standard? Is it because you hate him, and hate God? "Let's try your "reasoning": I lack belief that atheists can use reason, so they deserve lots of ridicule. Howzat work for ya, Skippy? Instead of attempting to explain himself according to his

Legal Hypocrisy from the Darwinists

Do you ever watch "The People's Court" or similar television programs? (They are popular on American television, airing during business hours on weekdays. People have the small claims court cases settled before television judges who tend to be quirky or even abusive.) Afterward, the parties of the case talk to the interviewer. The winner says, "Yes, I am happy with the decision. The judge is intelligent and justice was served". Well, of course! "Justice was served" because things went your way. Naturally, the loser of the case tends to disagree with the decision. There is a problem when court cases are settled and then misquoted. One fellow kept badgering me, insisting, "How many more times must the courts rule that ID isn't science before it sinks in?" (His claim was based on a ruling about a school district in Dover .) And yet, when I point out how the high courts have ruled that atheism and secular humanism are religions, I&#

Wrecking the "God of the Gaps" Nonsense

A common claim of atheists and evolutionists is that Christians use a policeman's exit (cop-out) by referring to God as the Creator, and as an explanation for the unknown. What they fail to realize (and, I suspect, they do this willfully) is that when Christians, creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design refer to the Creator, they are doing so because that is where the evidence leads . This is not a first resort, it is a logical conclusion based on the evidence. Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries has a radio program and podcast cal led " The Dividing Line ". He occasionally takes various calls, and is willing to discuss matters with Christians, atheists and others. I caught the podcast of July 14 ( the entire podcast is here ), and heard him discussing the "God of the Gaps". Dr. White shows just how absurd the accusation really is. The relevant excerpt is here: In addition, I'll steer you to something I posted at "Stormbri
