It's All Right for YOU to Say It

Then the LORD God said to the serpent:
    Because you have done this,
    you are cursed more than any livestock
    and more than any wild animal.
    You will move on your belly
    and eat dust all the days of your life.
Genesis 3.14 (HCSB)



Buona sera. It's rather amusing when orthodox evolutionists go into damage control and put their "spin" on embarrassing discoveries. After all, we know that evolution is true, that it's an established fact (never mind that it's still called a "theory"), that the Bible is full of hooey.

What happens when discoveries make monkeys out of evolutionists? They put on a proud face and change their stories, of course. God cursed the serpent in Genesis 3.14, which is a strong implication that snakes had legs. Guess what, Grover? Fossils of snakes with legs have been found! That fits in well with the view of Creationists, that species devolve and become less complex.

"But it also says that snakes eat dust, Cowboy Azriel!"

It's a bit of a dramatic effect, don't you think? Anyone with some sense can see this. In the Old West, there would be no fatalities if "slap leather" was literal and not an invitation to a gunfight. Or if the sun really "rose" like the newspaper said. Figures of speech and bits of drama happen. Cut me some slack, willya? (See? I just did it, too!)

How many of you remember the news about the coelacanth?

"What's a coelacanth, Cowboy Bob?"

It was a kind of armored fish, found in fossils with dinosaurs and declared to be extinct for 65 million years. Except that it was found alive and well in modern times. Ken Ham makes it worse for evolutionists:
Now here’s the point. No fossils of coelacanths have ever been found in the same layers as human fossils, but they have been found in the same layers as dinosaur fossils—yet we know coelacanths and humans do live together, because they do so in the present world.
In other words, just because we don’t find fossils of certain creatures (or plants) together with humans in the fossil record, it doesn’t mean they didn’t live together.
I'm glad I can trust the Bible (Isaiah 40.8) and not have to get my "facts" changed every time that the philosophers of "science" get their wires crossed. "Wires crossed"...it's a figure of speech. You betcha.
