Our Evolutionary President

As I watched the State of the Union address I was struck by only one thing.  Well, actually, I was struck by a whole bunch of things, most of them bouncing back off the television after I threw them, but there was one theme that seemed to run through everything that was said.

I cannot believe how much the logic of the arguments for evolution has become a part of the mainstream thought process.  Stick with me here.  Evolutionary logic goes like this:

            “The rocks are four billion years old.”

            “How do you know their age?”

            “Well, there are dinosaur bones in the rocks and we know those bones are four billion years old—so the rocks have to be four billion years old.”

            “How do we know the age of the bones?”

            “The archeologists have told us how old they are.”

            Then we talk to the archeologists:

            “The bones of the dinosaurs are four billion years old.”

            “How do we know their age?”

            “Well, the bones are in the rocks and the rocks are four billion years old—so the bones have to be four billion years old.”

            “How do we know the age of the rocks?”

            “The geologists have told us how old they are.”

That is the circular logic that is used to prove at least part of the argument for evolution.  Remember, we have to believe in evolution if we are going to lay the proper foundation for the death of God, or His nonexistence.

By now you are wondering what this has to do with the State of the Union.  It is simple.  Obama used the same thought processes in his speech.

            “Everything I say is true.”

            “Do you have anything to back up your statements?”

            “I do not have to back them up, they are true.”

            “How do we know they are true?”

            “They are true because I said them and I tell the truth.”

            “How do we know these things are the truth?”

            “Because I said them, are you not listening?”

And thus, here we are with a scattering of information from a variety of topics that beg for us to ignore logic and simply believe.

The trouble is that evolutionary thinking is based on the fact that there is no God and if there is no God we are supposed to live by logic not faith.

Now we have an evolutionary thinker asking us to defy logic and live by faith.

That is twisted!

    Actually its not twisted.
    If you read a book would you believe everything in it according to your education, beliefs, trials and tribulations, and most of all experiences? Would you believe the author or writers?
    We have been taught to believe religion without proof. We go to church every Sunday, carelessly speed to work on Monday, have premarital sex on Tuesday, eat enough steak to feed a village on Wednesday, carelessly race home on Thursday. Get paid on Friday, have unprotected sex while married while drunk on Saturday all night and go to church Sunday.
    If God made our lives this easy to make as many mistakes purposely and just forgave you every time, would that be fair to the folks in the world who don’t live this way?
    We have to become better people as “Individuals”. Because we have Freedom of Speech doesn’t mean you have to complain every time something doesn’t go your way. We complain about the president but he was the man who ran for President. He went through all the proper channels and hoops to become president. He spent time away from his family to learn the things of the world in order to maintain his position.
    It has also been taught to the American people that politicians of any kind are crooked but an ordain minister that rapes young boys is ok because he preaches the word of God.
    He who is without sin should cast the first stone right? So the rocks should stop to work on our own sins.
    Let’s become better individuals by correcting our wrongs, becoming “Alot” more educated on life and less time speaking just to be speaking. Once this practice begins, I think we will find the truths we are looking for.

    To GENERAL P*H*L*!*N*T, what you meant to say was, “if he *ever* read a book.” Mr Thornton, I suggest it, reading a book some time. Books are full of all kinds of interesting things, and you can learn a lot about the world from them. It is clear you have never read a damn thing concerning evolutionary biology. I feel I can say this with some confidence as your straw man is so very very bad. If you are going to construct specious arguments, at least have the courtesy to put a little thought into them and construct them better.

    This article is terrible and displays a gross misunderstanding of science and the scientific process. For evolution evidence, try talkorigins . org. As far as science goes, look up a little thing called peer reviewed literature. You young earth guys are always good for a laugh 😉
