CreationWiki, another of the attempts to replicate the success of Wikipedia, but with a certain spin. In this case we are talking about Creationism. So, as I wrote, High Fantasy. You do remember the giants and maiar in the bible right?
Well, this is a place for all sorts of wondrous ideas like those. The trouble is like the handful of Tolkien fans who take hobbits and elves too seriously, these people take their myths too seriously.
Creation vs. Evolution:
Evolutionism is the belief in the theory that life on Earth is simply the result of random, natural processes, and ultimately attempts to explain the existence of humans by means other than divine creation. The theory of evolution (or general theory of evolution) is a philosophical perspective that stems from an atheistic worldview. In contrast, creationism is the belief that the universe and life on Earth were created through a supernatural act of God. The creation is described by cultures all over the world where one central theme is found to emerge - order from chaos.
Wow! There is so much wrong with their understanding of evolution. And they try to claim all the creation myths, from across the globe and through time. I am sure these people would love to have believers in the ancient Greek pantheon say Genesis is an attempt to come to terms with the tales of Zeus and Cronus. I think it would set them off.
Creationists agree that organisms evolve through time, and in fact, would take few exceptions to the basic mechanisms of biological evolution as put forth by Charles Darwin. Creationists would also agree that the processes of genetic recombination and natural selection can result in the formation of new species. In fact, creationists believe that extremely rapid evolution occurred after the Flood to create the species that we see today from the smaller number of species that were on the ark.
Really? Creationist believe in EVOLUTION? Rapid evolution since THE ARK? Uh...
When was the Great Flood?:
According to the Biblical chronology the global flood occurred approximately 4500 years ago.
4, 500 years ago...2493 BC? Yeah, that would be RAPID Evolution. Man, if only their was any actual support for any of this. Could be an interesting argument. But, no. It is just all unicorns and balrogs.
Mount St. Helen:
The eruption at Mt. St. Helens on May 18, 1980 was an important geological event because we observed and documented large-scale catastrophic processes, which are extremely rare occurences. For creation science, the event was most notable because of the rapid deposition and erosion that provided a sizable model of the type of activity likely to have taken place during the great Biblical global flood of Noah. The work done at the volcano during its eruption by geologist, Steven Austin, et. al. to document this event is a highly recommended study.
Uh...What? With this kind of discovery, why haven't we heard about this? Why are they keeping it to themselves?
Another fountain of knowledge is Conservapædia:
Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian "C.E." instead of "A.D.", which Conservapedia uses. Christianity eceives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.
Conservapedia is an online resource and meeting place where we favor Christianity and America.
It is such a delicious site. Right off the start they make the stand we are going to be blindly Christian centric and American centric. Then they complain about the bias of others.
God, is there nothing sweeter than conservative egos.
We are going to blatantly pick and support one and only one view...You can come to us for an unbiased view.
The type of mind who edits these thoughts together and finds them coherent...these people are treated as authorities on any topic?
Here's a dozy.
Oliver Cromwell :
Excuse...have to have a dry spit take...
Although there were many bad sides to Oliver Cromwell's rule, he did a few good things. He gave the people more rights and brought about educational reforms. Cromwell is perhaps the person other than Jesus who declined enormous worldly power, in Cromwell's case by voluntarily refusing the crown of England.
Wow! Christlike? Why haven't we canonized him yet?
His works: vicious strike at Ireland, his dismantling of the British government by force and blood, and became Protector for life (i.e. DICTATOR).
So, YEAH, he refused the crown, after 6 weeks of mulling over it. Then became more powerful than the old kings. He didn't have a coronation, he just used all the trappings. He didn't have hereditary rule, but he could choose a successor (who happen to be his son). And, after he died and the king returned (Like the Tolkein reference?), he was executed and torn apart and his head was placed above Westminster Abby for for around 25 years.
Just like Christ.
Man, What Would Christ Do? Based on this represention of conservative thinking, DON'T ASK THEM! You don't want to know.
