Just a quite note. I will be back soon with a long, ponderous, super thoughtie think piece about the nature of Christinaity, but I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this. There's a site that challenges wackie ideas, like ufo's and stuff. They are attacking Wikepieida for allowing all knids of people to play with the edit button, as well thy should. But get a load of their list of things they opposse:
A good example of "politically correctness" and brainwashing is the Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia. Wikipedia prides itself in allowing visitors to revise the web page in most cases. However, they do not allow a reference and link to this website because we refute UFOs, Aliens, Bigfoot, Loch Ness, Roswell, Area 51, Crop Circles, Antigravity, Bermuda Triangle, evolution, Big Bang Theory and Red Shift Light Theory. They are a good example of the media perpetuating myths.
So evolution and Big Bang are in the same category with Bigfoot and UFO's? I can handle that, but the doppoer shift? That's just bread and butter science.If the doppler shift is not scientific how do they expalin the doppler effect in sound? Angels?
What's even funnier, they indict a well worne tacic of husxters:
One very effective marketing method is the personal testimony. We see this tactic used every day in advertising because it works. Buyers fall for the scam more readily when personal testimonies are presented even though the statements can easily be shown to be false. Humans are prolific liars, and many listeners cannot discern truth from lies. History has shown that highly credentialed people can be liars. Many prolific liars have been in high political office and in high religious positions. The number of witnesses adds nothing. Truth is not a popularity contest. Having lots of personal testimonies means nothing when judging the truth. Law enforcement officers have found that eye witnesses are not reliable sources for facts.
Guys! let's get our heads screwed on now. Personal testimony? We christians invented perosnal testimony. Don't you know that? That's our stock in trade. That's our bread and butter. Witnessing? Every heard of it? Come on guys, it call all be bad.
