Scientists can no more keep their ignorant hands off the Bible than a dog can rid itself of fleas or New York its bedbug infestation.
Mother Earth could have parted the Red Sea, hatching the great escape described in the biblical book of Exodus, a new study finds. A strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have swept water off a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon along the Mediterranean Sea, said study team member Carl Drews of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. While archaeologists and Egyptologists have found little evidence that any events described in Exodus actually happened, the study outlines a perfect storm that could have led to the 3,000-year-old escape.
Scientists, hear me, the Bible doesn’t need your explanations. Try curing the common cold and leave the Bible to people who understand it. Bloody gits. Naturalistic explanations have been around since the enlightenment. And do you know what they prove? Nothing. People of faith don’t need them and people without faith don’t need them either. Apologetics as an enterprise in its entirety is a vapid and pointless exercise in futility and- quite frankly, God doesn’t need you to defend Him, you arrogant prat. On that point Barth was 100% right.
I’m so tired of science dabbling where it doesn’t belong. I think I’ll find a scientist and do a bit of brain surgery on him. Let’s see how he likes it then when people with no training dabble.
