Pharyngula

I’d just like some reassurance that there are other targets out there, since
Korn is on the run.

An anti-evolutionary Christian extremist suspected of sending threatening letters to biology professors at the University of Colorado has gone on the lam, according to a staff member familiar with a police investigation into the matter.

Not that I’m panicky or anything, but I am more comfortable knowing he’s in Colorado than just somewhere.


OK, just to be on the safe side, I let the local police know that this guy is on the loose, and that he’d sent me some strange email yesterday. It’s highly unlikely he’d show up here … but if he did, there would be only one reason for him to be here.

    from the story posted by Brian:

    On Thursday, Jered Michael Ragon, 18, voluntarily went to the police station for questioning after Calaway and Plaisted implicated him, police Detective T. Catron said. Police called a MedStar ambulance because Ragon’s feet were burned, and a emergency medical crew treated him at the station.

    Ragon had gotten gasoline on his feet as he tried to destroy evidence from the church fire in the field, and his feet were burned, Catron said.

    *shakes head*

    too bad he didn’t finish the job on himself, then he could have been nominated for a Darwin award.

    Again Dave pulls out the apologist’s circular thinking:

    To have faith in God, you need to know He exists. We know He exists because the Bible says so. To understand the Bible, you must read it with an mind to understand. To have a mind to understand, you need to have faith in God. To have faith in God….

    If God truly wants us all to be saved, then why is it that skeptics are unmoved by Biblical quotes? How come you have to be ‘in the right mindset’ prior to reading it to understand. (And if you ‘were in the right mindset’ before reading the sutras, how is it you wouldn’t become a Buddhist automatically?)

    But please do go on about how we don’t know how to ‘think’ when confronted by Bible passages.
