Erickson Preaches Against Evolution

Erick Erickson knows his audience. If you’re speaking at the Values Voters Summit, you can be sure the crowd is full of creationists, so why not “disprove” a ridiculous caricature of evolution (one that they already believe, of course) and throw in a little preaching at the end.

These days, Erickson lamented, people “worship science” and “believe we were an accident of a primordial goo, particles bumping into each other after the Big Bang that created bacteria that created amoeba that created something that led to something that led to something, a missing link, and then men, somewhere in there there’s a monkey apparently.”

After mocking evolution as dumb and incompatible with the religious faith, even cracking a joke about the Fox series “Cosmos,” Erickson said “I see a world that is opposed to us in this room because we’re headed home to eternity, we’re just passing through.”

“There is a last day, pick a side and the right side wins,” he said, adding: “You have got to love someone enough that you don’t want them to go to Hell.”

Erickson doesn’t make a very convincing man of God, I’m afraid. He apparently thinks you go to heaven by pushing financial scams on your readers and calling a Supreme Court justice a “goat-fucking child molester.” You know, just like Jesus would do.

    I wish.

    He is a typical stupid, misogynistic bigot from Georgia.

    Of course, that makes him a perfect man of god, for some values of “man of god”.

    Ed,

    I apologize for going off-topic here, but your “Tech Issues” page appears to be broken. I’ve tried to use it to report autoplay ads several times in the past few days, and every time I click “submit” the browser becomes unresponsive and has to be killed.

    I’m getting autoplay ads on almost every page I load (including this one), all of them for Verizon Wireless. They don’t have pause or mute buttons, and they even play on tabs I’m not currently viewing. A sample URL:

    http://www.verizonwireless.com/wcms/consumer/4g-lte.html?cmp=BAC-VI-8171427_1650330_109815590_id!

    (Note: these aren’t “mouse-over” ads; my mouse has never come anywhere near any of them before they play. But let me point out that even such ads can be a problem, since they will start to play if your mouse happens to be in the wrong place when you – to a tab containing one. My ISP’s mail client has them and it’s a real annoyance.)

    I for one will be spending much less time at FTB (and thus seeing many fewer of your ads) until this is fixed.

    Sounds like he heard Ms Garrison teaching evolution to the South Park kids:

    “In the beginning, we were all fish. Okay? Swimming around in the water. And then one day a couple of fish had a retard baby, and the retard baby was different, so it got to live. So Retard Fish goes on to make more retard babies, and then one day, a retard baby fish crawled out of the ocean with its …mutant fish hands… and it had butt sex with a squirrel or something and made this…

    “Retard frog-squirrel, and then *that* had a retard baby which was a… monkey-fish-frog… And then this monkey-fish-frog had butt sex with that monkey, and that monkey had a mutant retard baby that screwed another monkey… and that made you!

    “So there you go! You’re the retarded offspring of five monkeys having butt sex with a fish-squirrel! Congratulations!”

    “I see a world that is opposed to us in this room because we’re headed home to eternity, we’re just passing through.”

    And the hotel staff all shout “Amen!”

    “You have got to love someone enough that you don’t want them to go to Hell.”

    Evidently with God, he stops there. The loving someone enough to take them out of hell when they don’t worship you is a bit too much to ask.

    Don’t let us hold you up.

    Why go to Hell when you can make living here & now just as bad? Thanks theists.

    people “worship science” and “believe we were an accident of a primordial goo, particles bumping into each other after the Big Bang that created bacteria that created amoeba that created something that led to something that led to something, a missing link, and then men, somewhere in there there’s a monkey apparently.”

    This he says while calling those who accept ET “Dumb”. Makes one wonder about the ‘goat-fucking child molester” thing.

    … we’re just passing through.

    Yeah, I have something in my colon that’s doing that. I think it might be Eric Erickson too.

    Hell doesn’t exist. But the fundies are trying real hard to make one on earth.

    “… we’re headed home to eternity, we’re just passing through.”(Eric Erickson)

    I think we Christians should look at this world as being a filthy restroom at a roadside gas station. Fate has brought us here, we try to touch as little of it as possible while doing our business, we hope to leave quickly, and we don’t ever plan on coming here again until it’s under better management. (Rapture Ready website)

    Ummm… doesn’t this attitude make them seem like the kind of people who should NOT be interested in going into politics?

    Just another right wing radio gasbag that needs to be deflated

    we’re just passing through

    You know what else is just passing through?

  • chris69

    I just wish they would pass through faster than the average kidney stone.
