Answers in genesis, atheists, evolution, and truth comes out of the barrel of a gun

Loon pond always has a special place reserved for Christian fundamentalists, especially those who love the book of Genesis as the explanation of everything, and hate evolutionists as bankrupt satanists.

It doesn't come any better than at 1:1

This apologetics ministry (as its lead writer dubs it) shows a firm hand when it comes to matters of science and the strange notion of millions of years old earth, and the even more preposterous idea of an even older universe.

AiG teaches that “facts” don’t speak for themselves, but must be interpreted. That is, there aren’t separate sets of “evidences” for evolution and creation—we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. The Bible—the “history book of the universe”—provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things, and can be trusted to tell the truth in all areas it touches on. Therefore, we are able to use it to help us make sense of this present world. When properly understood, the “evidence” confirms the biblical account.

When properly understood ... don't ya just love it.

But I'm afraid I can't come to a proper understanding of their current advertising campaign, which attracted the attention of Christine Garvin under the header Bizarre Christian Billboard Compares Atheism To Murder?

Only in Texas you might say but it surely beats the signs they put up on the church notice boards in my neck of the woods. You know, funny one liners like "There are some questions that can't be answered by google."

Even if their innocent advice to women isn't strictly feminist:

(If cornball humor at the expense of Christians is to your taste, google up funny church signs, and you'll find google does indeed provide the answer. No wonder the tubes are full to overflowing and Stephen Conroy needs to start banning things).

I guess the ad (see below) is trying to say that atheists, not understanding Genesis, similarly don't understand matters of morality, right or wrong, or life and the whole damn thing, and are inclined to point and cock a gun at the lens of true believers.

Or in a perverse way is it saying that, if you don't matter to god, you don't matter to anyone, and therefore the righteous Christian young can blow you away, like a troublesome abortion providing doctor? Yeah, it might introduce a bit of sharp thinking in the minds of heathens if they think they're staring down the barrel of a gun and about to meet their maker.

And what a knockdown scientific argument against evolution. See, Chairman Mao got it wrong with his political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. It's the truth about dinosaurs that comes from a six shooter.

What a funny old world it is. Onwards Christian soldiers.
