Creationists insist that the amazing world of the Bear Hunt sprung up ex nihilo for the purpose of telling a beautiful story.

But we know better. By Scientific observation and inductive reasoning we can prove the existence of enormous negative page numbers. We know that inductive reasoning functions as incontestable proof, because we are the keepers and guardians of the sacred truth that all worlds are impersonal machines and not stories. Worlds have no plots, and are filled only with particles, not characters. Creationists are stupid. So are all authors, artists, composers and poets — they are all conspiring in a tremendous lie about worlds and Science (all rise!).

  5. Everything is meaningless, pointless and hopeless. Therefore, I must tear away your blindfold that keeps you dangerously convinced of purpose, beauty, and heaven. You are the ones we should lock up to prevent future generations from being corrupted.

  6. Peter Leithart comments that “unbelief ends up sacrificing economics and literature as well as religion.”

  9. […] that the universe is roughly 6000 years old. Of course the universe has the appearance of age; doesn’t any work of art? It is true that not all genealogies capture every generation for theological reasons, but it seems […]
