I love the interwebz.
Youre just playing Google Goonies, searching for treasure in the internetz sewer tubes, and you find the neatest stuff. Like yesterday, I was Googling ‘Paul Wesselhoft’, cause he was one of the twats behind OKs ‘Academic Freedom’ bill, and he hates puppies, and I found this neat blog post by PastorDude:
Oklahoma University is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of OUR tax money celebrating Darwin Day and forcing godless evolution onto the students. For example, they are paying Richard Dawkins, the world’s leading atheist, $30,000 for a one hour lecture!
LOL! God these people are IDiots! I know how much Dawkins got paid, and it wasnt $30,000, but lets pretend it was. Lets see, the state of Oklahoma only contributes, what, about 14-15%% of OUs budget (the rest comes from sports, insurance companies/clinics, tuition, research grants, private funds/endowments/stocks/land, etc)? If Dawkins ‘got paid’ $30,000, 15% of that is $4,500. So the taxpayers ‘spent’ $4,500. But Dawkins gave $5,000 to the state of Oklahoma via OESE. So technically, the taxpayers of Oklahoma *made* $500, if Dawkins got paid $30,000. And he didnt. So the taxpayers actually made… almost $5,000 from Dawkins visiting, and thats ignoring the money we made from sales tax from all the people who drove in from TX, KS, and AR, and ignoring that OU didnt pay for Dawkins visit.
LOL! Creationists no gud at teh mathz. But you keep reaching for that rainbow, Norbert!
The Arguments Regarding Design flow from this post like manna from the heavens:
Some of these events will have eternal consequences. As a former biology professor, I saw countless young Christian students lose their faith and stop attending church and reading the Bible as they became indoctrinated with godless evolution dogma. For lost science students it is even worse. Evolution erects barriers blocking ALL roads to the Cross…barriers that can ONLY be dismantled by careful reason.
Let me add that we already know OU will be a VERY hostile environment. Last year we had the world’s leading Intelligent Design advocate, Bill Dembski attend and lecture. He said he has been to hundreds of university campuses around the world and he had never been treated so harshly as he was at OU.
I will also attach a report from Oklahoma University in response to the bill we helped write to protect teachers in our public schools in Oklahoma who want to discuss controversial issues in class. The bill does NOT mention creation or intelligent design, but Vic seemed not to understand…if he actually read the proposed bill. Oh, Tuesday night I met the Oklahoma Senator that introduced the bill…he is a good Christian man and said, “We must be doing something right to get so much response from the evolutionists.” I agree. Judy is Representative Paul Wesselhoft’s wife and a dear friend of mine. Yes, she has heard my Scientific Evidence of Creation lecture. She is also a member of our OBSE board of directors.
So, the guys who keep introducing the Academic Freedom bills in Oklahoma are Paul Wesselhoft and Randy Brogdon. They, evidently, not only regularly consults with pastors like Norbert here, who think evilution is a road to eternal damnation, when writing bills on ‘Academic Freedom’, but actively let them ‘help write’ these bills (huh, I figured they were just copy/pastes of Discovery Institute memos). Norbert just Twittered “Holy Cow! 1st time I’ve been called by a Senator who was on the Senate Floor just now! Calling about my blog. Can’t wait to preach tonight!”. Neato. Randy Brogdon thinks going against the entire scientific community is ‘doing something right’. Wesselhofts wife is on the board of Oklahomans for More Gooder Science, and finds Creationist Claims about evilution persuasive. All they need to do now is to take a little field-trip to Turkey to figure out how they can finally turn their religious fascism into science.
Remember folks, its all about leading people to The Cross.
All science so far!!
“It befuddles me,” Senator Brogdon says. “It’s amazing that people who believe in human secularism don’t want to have an open discussion…. My gosh, what kind of system do we have if we only teach one set of information, one piece of the puzzle?”
My gosh, Senator! My gosh!!!!
