Over at the “ID is nothing but science, we really mean it” Uncommon Dissent blog, there’s an interesting little biblical discussion going on right now. In this case, DaveScot’s remarkable response to a comment on the After the Bar Closes discussion board does an amazing job at evoking that Ghostbusters kind of feel.
Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes…
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria.
That’s right. Presented with a proposed experiment where baby mice and snakes would be raised together (a suggestion that was actually taken directly from The Twin Cities Creation Science Association), DaveScot shows us a picture of one of his cats laying on a carpet with one of his dogs. And he says this:
Not exactly a wolf and a lamb but not that much different either.
There’s really nothing that I can add to that. DaveScot has once again managed to demonstrate the amazing level of understanding of biology that has made him such a legend – in his own mind.
