Intelligent Design DEATHMATCH vs. Archeology

This is about four minutes of me talking about intelligent design and archeology, with some UFO stuff thrown in. Interestingly, I posted this both on YouTube and GodTube last night. On YouTube, four people have bothered to watch it. On GodTube, over 100 have watched it, already.

Oh, dear, the Christians like me. I suspect this is because the people on GodTube are more, ah, purpose oriented. And I have long said that Simon Peter is directed at a Christian audience.

I am reasonably pleased with this. In the future, I want to have a title sequence, and I need to plug my website, and I definitely need to talk a little slower, but all in all I'm pleased.

I suspect I'll be doing a vlog on issues that a Christian might be interested in hearing an atheist sound off on, like "do I hate God?" and my feelings on the basis of morality without religion. Something like "Confessions of an Atheist". I figure the GodTube crowd will eat it up. ;)

I enjoyed the video.

My conclusion; Proponents of "Intelligent design" don't want to see things in a scientific way, they just want to prove "God".
That is why they do idiot things like try to find Noahs Ark. Now there is some interesting Archeological research for ya.
What blows my mind is, they talk about faith so much, then make asses of themselves trying to prove it.

Well, to be honest, at least when they try to find Noah's ark they're TRYING to engage in science. Of course, their utter failure to find it also suggest something, too.

And, for what it is worth, Bible archeology -- they have a whole FIELD for it -- is massively corrupt. For instance, archaeologists refuse to say that there is a strong connection between Roman Mithraism and Christianity. Despite the birth and death stories of Jesus bearing, shall we say, striking similarities with Mithras' birth and death stories -- and, get this, St. Paul having been born in the very town where Roman Mithraism came from. But, nooooo, they won't say there's a strong connection between the Roman Mithras and Christianity. So it isn't like archaeologists are wholly free of this, ahem, taint. ;)

But, yeah, for people who rattle on about faith they sure do want there to be scientific proof! Which is, I think, ultimately going to be the end for religions. The more a religion looks for scientific proof, and the more frustrated they get when they don't find it, the more they'll overcome their frustration by abandoning religion. After all, there's nothing that a person gets from religion that they can't get from a secular source.

Satan is altogether thinner, better looking and richer than I am. ;)
