This past Sunday, I took time to read the comic strip, Doonesbury. Garry Trudeau has kept the strip going for over 40 years, which says something about its popularity. Some papers post it on their editorial page, as Trudeau keeps it to a predictable liberal viewpoint.
Guess which groups Sunday’s issue ridiculed: a) Christians, b) creationists, c) the State of Louisiana, d) God, e) the Bible, f) all of the above.
If you guessed f), move to the head of the class. Yep, Trudeau takes full advantage of his cartoonist’s role to disrespect anyone he chooses and get away with it. The first frame shows high school science teacher Stiller telling his class: “So all the evidence massively supports a theory of evolution that knits together everything we know about biology.”
In the second frame, the teacher continues, “However, as high school science students in the State of Louisiana, you are entitled to learn an alternative theory supported by no scientific evidence whatsoever.” Succeeding panels have Mr. Stiller tossing out half-truths which are supposed to represent the Biblical view of creation. They are stated in terms designed to make Christians to be—take your pick: 1) anti-science, 2) non-thinking boobs, 3) bad people, 4) hypocritical, and 5) followers of a capricious, evil, and uncaring God. Yes, if you’re a Christian who accepts the Bible as inerrant, Trudeau caricatures you as fitting all those categories.
You can read the September 16 strip at: http://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/2012/09/16 . Actually, you could have read the exact same strip in The Sunday Oregonian on July 10, 2011. Evidently Mr. Trudeau was so pleased with his effort that he re-cycled it. Who knows how many times he used it before? Of course, that’s consistent with previous attempts by evolutionists to fool an unsuspecting public.
You have to admit, Mr. Trudeau is talented, smart, and hip. In this case, though, he’s the hypocrite. He posits evolution as supported by “all the evidence,” but speaking through Mr. Stiller, he offers not a shred of evidence. The reason? There is none.
No transitional forms. Evolution is not science; it is if anything, the religion of atheism so its adherents can have an alternative to the God of the Universe. It shouldn’t be forgotten that the Christian church is the home of the scientific method.
Evolutionists don’t want alternative viewpoints presented in the classroom; otherwise, they would be expected to defend their theory. For that is all it is—a theory that you and I came from pond slime in the randomness of natural selection.
Now that is anti-science.
