On an episode of Creation Today, a creationist and author for noted right-wing, delusional news outlet World Net Daily named David Rives made the claim that science that does not line up with the Bible is just bad science.
And “good science” is the science that backs up what the Bible says – that in 6 days “God created everything.”
And, according to Rives:
Now, today we have a lot of atheistic scientists who are telling us, ‘You can’t believe the Bible,’ that everything is the result of an explosion 14 billion years ago, and I believe that is bad science. It doesn’t line up with the Bible, and it has a lot of problems that those scientists don’t want to tell you. You can study astronomy no problem at all, as long as you stick to the facts of astronomy. The scientific, empirical data that can be seen and demonstrated
Rives goes on to explain that since there are many unanswered questions about the Big Bang Theory, that it can’t be true. But the Bible has all the answers to how the world was created, so it is true.
So there you have it. Everything we need to know about science can be found in Genesis. So get rid of those science textbooks, take your kids out of science class, and just have them read the Bible. Maybe they’ll even be prompted to join the Flat Earth Society.
Watch the absurdity for yourself below.
