THE FOLLOWING IS FROM A DEVOUT EVOLUTIONIST AND A HATER OF GOD AND THE BIBLE:
“But I am also a deeply rational person. And so as I began to read studies…volumes and volumes of studies…I realized that the scientists who published these findings were not on an anti-God rampage, they were simply publishing their observations. I then realized it would be irrational to reject their findings. Why? Because if they were, indeed, falsified…an anti-God conspiracy of unheard of, global, proportions would be going on. I don’t consider it rational to hold such an opinion.
And there is no dogma in science. The best thing for a scientist to hear is that they’re wrong. Why? It means new curiosity, new answers, new searching. Just look at last summer. Scientists had predicted, for decades, the existence of the Higgs Boson particle…the field that gives the universe mass. Scientists were almost disappointed that their prediction was right! It would have been much more exciting to have to go back to the physics drawing board. Instead, the Standard Model was confirmed. Again.
So I was convinced by testable data. Not dogma. Again, that is falsifiable evidence.
So, no, I am not going to spend an hour listening to a nutjob like Hovind. I spend the first 20 years of my life “studying” that kind of drivel. I’ve got better, more exciting, and real things to learn now.”
