Guilt Trip 101

Creation Ministries International’s Question Evolution! contains some dodgy things, besides that the “15 questions evolutionist cannot answer” have in fact been answered. This leaves champion of the cause Ken DeMyer now having to preface it with “15 questions evolutionist can’t satisfactorily answer”, meaning that Ken is not going to accept their answers any way as they are not to his satisfaction.

However the lowest thing yet came from one of his blog in a piece by Jim Pappas, a not exactly svelte looking Christian, whose article The high price of NOT asking the 15 Questions for Evolutionists in your classroom contains the following wonderful advise for school aged children:

Bottom line: People are going to go to hell, and eventually, after the Judgment, the Lake of Fire to be eternally separated from God. This is the high price to be paid by people if we decide to keep our hands down and our questions to ourselves.

Look at your friends and classmates next time you go to school. Do you want to be responsible for their eternal damnation because you refused to ask a simple question in class when you had a burning in your heart to do so?

That is right kiddies, don’t ask these questions and you are responsible for sending your class mates to hell.He does go on:

The exceeding high price is the salvation and eternal future of your friends and classmates. Some of your friends will forever disbelieve God because of the spiritual blindness caused by the ultimate belief of evolution – there is no God!!! Other friends of yours are struggling with the conflict between what is taught as “science” (which evolution is not) and what is claimed to be religion. The creation of the universe by Almighty God is not religion! The creation of the universe by Almighty God is accurately recorded history! The creation of the universe as recorded in Holy Scripture is the ultimate eyewitness testimony of the most reliable Witness there could ever be: the Almighty God who was there and actually created the universe.

Do you want the highly infectious belief in evolution to continuously eat at the souls of your friends and classmates? Or, do you want to do what you can, raise your hand in class and ask a few simple questions? The choice is yours, and so is the reward. Will you choose the action whose reward is watching your peers slowly lose their faith to a false atheistic belief system, or will you choose the reward of helping your friends gain the crown of life?

I think I might go back to drinking now *sigh*.

    The worst is, most grade school science teachers may not be able to answer such questions on the fly. Not everybody can be PZ Myers.
    Hell, my seventh grade science teacher outright told us evolution didn’t make sense to her and that she was a creationist.

      Yeah, most teachers are not really equipped to handle a barrage of nonsense thrown at them quickly. I suspect that CMI know this and that is why they are trying to get children to proselytise for them.

    It’s people like this that deserve a special place in hell, if there is such a place. Playing on the fears of young, impressionable kids, in order to make a non-nonsensical point. Then again, that’s always been Christianity’s biggest selling point – God loves you so much that if you don’t worship him, he’s going to make you burn for ever! Lovely!

    Also, it’s a shame you can’t comment on their blog – cowards that they are. Well, you can comment, but they won’t publish it.

    It’s like a battlefield where the general is too stupid to see he’s gonna lose and so he sends his hapless troops to their doom. Why embarrass yourself and sully your name when young kids indoctrinated into the same belief can do it for you?

    Good thing students are more intelligent than we give credit for. Any instances of students questioning their teacher about evolution in front of the class, getting in trouble for preaching creation, or giving two shits of a fuck what Question Evolution! is even about? NOPE.AVI

    Speaking of guilt trips, you’ve been failing miserably in your reading WingnutDaily so I don’t have to duties. Hop to it! 😀

      Have you no heart, Sir? No mercy? Do you have any idea of the wailing and gnashing of teeth that accompanies each venture into WNDland? Or of how annoying the repetitive thud-thud-thud-thud sound of his head hitting the desk is?

      That said, I’ve also told him that the beatings will continue until morale improves…

    • Pi says:

      Unfortunately finishing my PhD has taken presidents over my blogging. Also the new WND is a bit bland and boring, lots of news aggregation and very little original crazy outside of the opinion columns. The old WND could be relied upon for some classic pointless articles written by the staff writers, now you just have dig through misleading headlines of articles on other websites to find any original content.

      • Pi says:

        Although that does get me thinking of a possible new feature to the round up when it does return, most misleading WND article spin.
