Don’t Know Much Biology
Oh look, it’s an ignorant-ass Christian mouthing off about shit he doesn’t understand…somehow, evolution got dragged into the Duggar debate:
Eric Hovind — son of imprisoned creationist theme park operator Kent Hovind – said Duggar was the victim of a double standard by the media, which he said praised sins such as lust, abortion, and homosexuality but condemned “confession, judgment, and forgiveness.”
Naturally, he blamed evolution.
“If evolution is true, then there is no absolute right and wrong,” Hovind said. “If evolution is true Josh should not have admitted his faults over a decade ago because what one evolved bag of molecules does to another bag of molecules just doesn’t really matter. If evolution is true there is no ultimate Judge on the bench who will hold every man, woman, and child responsible for their actions. And if evolution is true you will not give an account for every idle word you speak.”
You stupid, stupid sad motherfucker. How depressing it must be to need an angry God to get you to behave correctly. I know right from wrong. I follow the laws and customs of my surroundings. I also have empathy in my heart for my fellow human beings, because I would ask them to have the same for me. That is just common sense, you don’t need a fucking bible to suss this.
Furthermore, is he really insinuating that we aren’t made of molecules because evolution isn’t true? Those are two different things. Not believing we are made of them is a deeper level of dumb that I can’t fathom. This brand of Christianity is a blight. One fervently hopes that someday, social evolution will weed these mindless cretins out.
