Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham Challenges Pat Robertson to Debate

creationism-4See, Bill Nye? This is what happens when you feed these trolls. At least they’re turning on each other. I wonder what Ham thinks of Robertson’s statements that Katrina destroyed New Orleans because of gays? That “science”, too?

Creation Museum founder Ken Ham is once again furious that Pat Robertson has mocked proponents of Young Earth Creationism, and now wants to appear on the “700 Club” to debate the televangelist.

Ham, who recently held a debate with Bill Nye, said in a blog post today that he is willing to debate Robertson either on the “700 Club” or at Regent University, the school founded by Robertson.

I wonder if Pat Robertson would be prepared to discuss these issues with me or one of our AiG scientists on the 700 Club? Or maybe in some sort of debate format at Regent University? We are certainly willing to do that—maybe all of you reading this could challenge CBN/Regent University to allow such a discussion, debate, or forum to occur publicly.

Three Oklahoma Men Arrested After Accidental Shooting During Bigfoot Hunt

6a00d8341c51c053ef00e54f1fdda88833-800wiSounds a little Squatchy to me.

Via HuffPo:

The Rogers County, Oklahoma Sheriff’s Department arrested three men after one of them was accidentally shot. Authorities are still searching for the gun used in the shooting.

According to Sheriff Scott Walton, the three men were hunting Bigfoot late Saturday night, when one of them was spooked by what he thought might be the legendary beast and fired his weapon, hitting his friend in the back.

“When you start off with an explanation like that, do you believe anything after that?” Sheriff Walton said.

The men immediately contacted 911 and met emergency responders on a nearby interstate. The wounded man is expected to survive.

Y’all Comin’ to the 9/11 Festival?

911funI saw this flyer on the way to jiu-jitsu class and had to share. Something about a 9/11 memorial event offering food, door prizes and a fun run turns my stomach, but apparently I’m in the minority here in the Deep South. A local athletic shoe company and church is sponsoring the event, along with the local utility company and fire department.

“Bring the whole family for a fun-filled day!”

Shudder.

PS: Be sure to get your tickets for the Pearl Harbor Ice Cream Social and Sack Race.

This is Why They Call it the Idiot Box: Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield Fake ‘Satellite’ Interview

grace-31-300x187While covering the Cleveland kidnapping story genuinely despicable despair-vampire and purveyor of prime time idiot bait  Nancy Grace conducted a “satellite” interview with CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield. The only problem is that the two “reporters” were in the same parking lot. The Atlantic Wire provides irrefutable proof through a series of animated GIFs. Go check them out.

Hilarious ‘Satirist’ Pushes the Envelope Too Far?

Satire is the art of pretending to adopt a position you wish to ridicule and then, with apparent sincerity, aping opinions you consider absurd. A good satirist never drops his mask in public and leaves not a single chink in his characterisation. The trick is to go as far as possible without it ever being too obvious you’re acting the fool. In other words, ‘credibility’ is the key. Could it be possible that this noble art is being enacted by the current Director of “Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy” at the American Family Association, Bryan Fischer?

If so his daring comedic style extends to the following breath-taking nonsense, according to him, the bastards who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001 were “agents of God’s wrath” because it is they who inspired “God Bless America” to be sung at Major League Baseball games. His topper to these edgy lines are that singing this song is “one of the reasons we haven’t been hit since 9/11.”

Now, Disinfo likes a laugh as much as anyone but even we’re a little unsure about all this.… Read the rest
