I watched a program on the Science Channel on Tuesday night on the Hubble Telescope- the instrument that has opened our eyes on the vastness and the structures of our universe. Then, I went online and saw a news article on CNN titled, “Promiscuous women cause earthquakes, Iran cleric says.” On a blog I read this from a fundamentalist Christian, “Re: the Icelandic volcano, earthquakes, and Tsunamis, hurricanes –other natural disasters, my husband says I should’ve posted some prophecy.”
The End Times draw near. Time to fear. Only ‘faith’ will save you- repent of your sins!
Then it came to me- these religious nuts have no idea about science, nature and the universe. And they don’t want to know because, with each new discovery, their Holy Books inch ever closer to the comic book rack.
Here is a Hubble photo showing thousands of distant galaxies whirling in space- space so deep that the ‘edge’ is 13.7 billion years away from its inception. And these phony religious nuts are worried about an earthquake or a volcano spelling doom for the earth.
Their stupidity is beyond description. Enjoy the photo.
