Hitler Believed in Evolution,

Rusty Carter has a degree in biblical studies from Colorado Christian University. His bling job is doing floor maintenance but his true passion is educating children by leading creationism tours at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science for a Christian school. Neither I nor the museum have any problem with that. They are being exposed to the exhibits at least so maybe some of them will develop an interest in science that will take them beyond Rusty's views. Anytime they spend outside the Truth Christian Academy is probably in their best interests. (Is floor maintenance like a euphemism for cleaning? You would think that if a floor was put in correctly it should pretty much sit there until it needed repair. Maybe they have Rusty spread out on it to keep it from curling up. I am sure there is a real job behind the term "floor maintenance" but it defiantly needs a more descriptive title if floor maintenance workers are to be taken seriously. They should also not make Rusty their spokesman if they want to be taken seriously as the following extraction of this article shows.

Carter goes for the drama. Hitler believed in evolution, he tells the students, but Carter is careful to emphasize he does not mean people who believe in evolution are racists.

How careful of him. He just mentions it because it is educational. Not racist - just evil.

For a little hometown shock he calls Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, two Colorado teenagers who killed 13 people at Columbine High School before killing themselves, evolutionists.

I understand that they were gay, feminist, abortion doctors who were filing for divorce too. I am surprised to hear them described as evolutionists; I must have missed the science papers they published in the peer reviewed journal CRAZY-ASSED! The Journal of Darwinian Slaughtering. I am actually very pleased that they are learning creationism from Rusty. Even if they get fooled now, as the years progress and they hear the same tactics repeated over and over again, and watch how people in the wider world tear them to shreds logically speaking. They will think back on how the school they went to had a floor maintenance worker teach them science while using strawmen and sophistries to do it. In my opinion, Rusty is the best person to teach creationism.

In other news Georgia is getting an ice storm. Sources close to God say that he was aiming for Dover PA but with his new bifocals, Pat Robertson might have to hold his I-told-you-so's for a couple months.

Well you know, Jeffrey Dahmer's father on Larry King Live said that Jeff was an evolutionist while he was on his murdering spree, but luckily Lionel converted him to Creationism in the joint.

L. DAHMER: Jeff -- he -- at first it was extremely hard, but then he -- he sent away for 13 books. It's down in Alcahone (ph), California, Institute for Creation Research. I told him about the place. And he bought 13 books that turned him from a -- an evolutionist into a creationist and from there into a Christian.


So there is precident.

He he.

Who would have thought that such a genius evolutionist as Jeffrey Dahmer would have been so easily convinced. Maybe I'm all turned around on the subject.

Since this was Larry King Live, I wonder if they mentioned Jeff becoming a professional pet psychic while he was in the big house.

It is true, there is a precedent for people finding some vile person among one's opponents and linking that person to the belief you oppose. Sure the fun one is Hitler because everyone gets a swing at the pinata. People who are opposed to Christianity mention his Roman Catholic background, Christians mention his new-age wackiness, or alleged belief in (if complete misunderstanding of) evolution. Dahmer also had his parents divorce so that shows that kids from divorced marriages become evil. We must overlook certain inconvenient facts like:

a) He may have "believed" in something similar to evolution but he knew nothing about it apparently. "He felt that he was up -- up from the slime, as he put it. You know, molecules to amoebas to Larry type of a thing, evolution." This is what creationists believe the theory of evolution is. This is interesting because his father was, and still is as far as we know, a fundamentalist Christian. Maybe he got his lessons about evolution from him.

b) His birth mother had a difficult pregnancy including convulsions. He had symptoms of neuro-biological disorders and mental pathologies early in life. Also, he was molested by a neighbor kid.

c) He was a homosexual who hated homosexuality which was probably because of having a fundamentalist father plus his molestation.

Still it is fun for creationists to blame his evil on evolution.

BTW - The BTK killer was a Lutheran.

Hitler was an opportunist who said whatever he had to say to sway the audience at the time. Clearly he believed in some sort of theism (even if he wasn't a Christian), as he often made reference to "Providence". Given his constant refernces to the Jews as "bacterium" I've always thought missused microbiology more than evolution per se.

As for Larry, in his last foray on evolution he introduced Barbara Forrest with the moronic, "How can you reject creationism completely because if evolution is true, why are there still monkeys?"

For some "evolutionist" isn't so much a scientific distinction, its simply another way of saying "atheist".

Great blog...from a fellow Maritimer.

Oh mercy, Larry is the living end. I hope Barbara Forrest informed him that their were still niches open to monkeys such as that of talk show host. (If creationists can use the words money and ape to slander people so can I damn it. Two wrongs make a right, after all)

Glad you like the blog. I have been trying to keep it tightly focused around a central theme (that being whatever strikes my fancy).

PS. I just looked up Larry on Wikipedia. His bio must have been vandalized because his list of marriages and companions looks like someone's resume. I have nothing against divorce (though I think many of them could be prevented with some marriage counseling and better pre-marriage counseling) but if even half of the list is for real I have got to wonder how hard this guy is to live with (or else how he can manage to find so many Mrs Wrongs and only recognize it after the fact I do's).

Barbara hardly had a chance to say much of anything. Also on the show were two senators, a young earth creationist, a ID goober from the Discovery Institute, and for some bizarre reason Deepak Chopra, who babbled on as he usually does about "quantum consiousness".

I always find it creepy when Larry has his kids on his show (usually to see Jack Hanna and his animals, to which the kids are rather indifferent). He looks like he should be their grandfather if not their great-grandfather.

Keep on blogging dude!

Well, two senators were allowed to speak. I bet that threw all kinds of light onto the issue. The kind of light that is smelly and hard to wash out of clothing, that is. And who needs to here from a scientist when the had Deepak Chopra. I wonder if quantum consciousness is like sleep because that is the altered state that I often attain when listening to him.
