Rick Warren Sullies Barack Obama With Stone Age Science
Remember how Barack Obama promised that he would bring a serious consideration of science back to the White House if he were elected President? Looks like he might not have been so serious about that after all.
Barack Obama has invited a Creationist, extremist preacher Rick Warren, to kick off his Inauguration with a religious ritual. Here’s what Rick Warren teaches about evolution:
“The Bible’s picture is that dinosaurs and man lived together on the earth, an earth that was filled with vegetation and beauty… Although it cannot be stated with certainty, it appears that dinosaurs may have actually been mentioned in the Bible. The Bible uses names like “behemoth” and “tannin.” Behemoth means kingly, gigantic beasts. Tannin is a term that includes dragon-like animals and the great sea creatures such as whales, giant squid,
and marine reptiles like the plesiosaurs that may have become extinct. The Bible’s best description of a dinosaur-like animal is in Job chapter 40. We don’t know for certain if these are actually dinosaurs or are some other large creatures that became extinct.
This should not sound so strange. After all, God tells us that he created all the land animals on the sixth day of creation, the same day that he created mankind. Man and dinosaurs lived at the same time. There was never a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. From the very beginning of creation, God gave man dominion over all that was made, even over the dinosaurs.”
After eight years of suffering under George W. Bush’s attacks on science, doesn’t America deserve better than this? A Creationist’s official religious ritual on Inauguration Day?
Is this change?
