Bill Nye's Pro-Abortion Anti-Science

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Bill Nye, the tiresome leftist guy, seems to be the go-to spokesman for anything pseudo-science. "Science Guy?" He has a BS in mechanical engineering (the consensus is that engineers are not scientists) and worked as a mechanical engineer for Boeing, was rejected by NASA, got his "science guy" start in the "Almost Live" comedy show, went on to do a science show for kids (mainly run on the liberal PBS-TV), and so on.
Bill Nye is getting increased adoration from leftists. Now he's using bad science and bad logic to support abortion.

By my cognating, he was just another unimportant celebrity that wandered away from the corral. But since it's cool for leftists to mock Christians (and especially creationists), Nye got attention by attacking biblical creationists in a video. Answers in Genesis responded with two reply videos, and when the attacks on AiG escalated, they issued a public challenge for Nye to debate one of their PhD scientists. The "science guy" didn't have the nerve to do that, so he had to settle for Ken Ham (who still has more earned academic credentials than Nye). The Ham-Nye debate had many responses from creationists. Nye not only ignored scientific evidence for creation, but used outdated material that had been dealt with by creationists long ago, and used logical fallacies. (That was fine with atheists, he could have made rude noises and they would have applauded.)

This poster boy for evolutionism has been sought for his "scientific" expertise on various topics, including global warming, the NFL under-inflated football scandal, shipbuilding (in the debate), and more. He's annoying, and the liberal media should stop consulting him.

What is much worse is that he's using his lack of science knowledge to support leftist pro-abortion propaganda. I find this troubling, and others are finding him mighty irritating nowadays. Bill Nye the Abortion Propaganda Non-Science Guy was taken to task in two strong articles that are worth reading: "Back to Science Class for the Science Guy", and "Abortion Fans Are Bad at Science and Even Worse at Making Rational Arguments".

When Bill Nye was a mite less known, The Onion posted a piece on how Nye was killed in an experiment. There was also a hoax in 2014 that was quickly discredited about his untimely demise. The man himself is not yet pushing up the daisies, but his integrity and credibility have rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. There's still time for him to repent and come to terms with the Creator that he is pretending does not exist (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, John 1:12, 2 Corinthians 5:17). Until then, intelligent people need to refute his pronouncements.

Kim Davis, Homosexual "Marriage", and Religious Freedom

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Since the US Supreme Court legalized homosexual "marriage" (no one can actually redefine marriage because God is the one who defined it), religious persecution has been on the rise, as was predicted by Franklin Graham and others; say that homosexuality is a sin and not something to be celebrated, risk getting in trouble. The court has been wrong in the past (abortion, the Dred Scott decision, and others), and is wrong now. Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, refused to issue marriage licenses that would violate her religious convictions. She went to jail, which was a violation of both the United States Constitution and the Kentucky Constitution. Indeed, the tinhorn activist judge who sent her to jail also required reeducation of students who opposed homosexuality.

Naturally, the Gaystapo, unintelligent atheists, and other leftists are thrilled with all this, not caring about the implications that state and federal laws are being violated. No, it's more important to advance the gay agenda and hog tie "religious" folks. These are the kind of people who would kick a fresh cow patty on a hot day.

One of the hate remarks is summarized in the picture above, that Kim Davis is on her fourth marriage, so she has no right to complain or stand up for her convictions. Sanctity of marriage? She's a hypocrite since she's had so many herself, so why complain about homosexuals wanting marriage? Narf! Nice superficial straw man there, Poindexter. The fact is, she made her religious commitment after her divorces and fourth marriage. Take a look at "Top 10 liberal lies about Kentucky clerk Kim Davis".

Follow me as we ride along this here side trail now.

Many Christians are uniting to support this "sister in Christ". But is she, really? She's a member of the Rock Solid Apostolic Church, which holds to a heretical modalist view like the United Pentecostal Church, which denies the true nature of God as revealed in Scripture. Her church's site is down (no surprise), but in the archived "About Us" section, it says in part,
We believe, as explicitly stated in the scriptures, that there is only one God (Deut 6:4). He is the Father of all creation (Malachi 2:10). He was manifested as the Son for our redemption (Isaiah 9:6, Matt. 1:21-23) and is dwelling in the lives of the believers as the Holy Ghost (Colossians 1:27). We preach the Bible as our roadmap to heaven. The plan of salvation that the apostles preached is the same plan that we preach (hence the name “Apostolic”), which is repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48, 19:5, 22:16, Col. 3:17, Eph. 4:5).  
Although they list several Bible verses, they are twisted and taken out of context. This church is listed in the Apostolic Churches directory, which has several major flaws in its beliefs section.

As I said, Rock Solid believes modalism, but also insist that water baptism is necessary for salvation, which is false. The Apostolic Churches also believe in the unbiblical doctrine that you must speak in tongues to prove you're saved. Both of these are adding works to faith-based salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9). In addition, the "apostolic" churches are unbiblical, divisive, and cultic. To learn more, I suggest checking out Holly Pivec's "Spirit of Error" and these two interviews with her. Also the articles, "What is the New Apostolic Reformation?" and "The Apostles Who Don't Do Anything".

This brings me to something that will irritate some folks. That is, Kim Davis is deeply religious, but if she's accepting the false teachings of this group, then the Jesus she believes in and her religious convictions are not based on a proper understanding of the Bible. She would then need to repent and believe in the real Jesus of the Bible, and accept the biblical understanding of the nature of God.

Now let's rejoin the main trail we were riding and reach our destination.

Do I support Kim Davis because she's a sister in Christ? No, because I do not believe that she is. Should I join with others in supporting her for upholding her religious convictions? You betcha! Listen up, cow-patty-on-a-hot-day-kickers as well as decent people. Myopic atheists and leftists should be supporting her as well because of the blatant governmental violations of free speech, religion — and thought. Just because someone doesn't agree with the views of someone else doesn't mean they can't uphold the bigger principles at stake.

Update: She has been released from jail. Let's find out what happens.

This popular version of a quote by Martin Niemöller applies here:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
Do you savvy?

Does Free Speech Apply to Employers and Social Media?

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Most of us know that employers in The Big Company monitor someone's social media activities. As is often the case, when someone expresses a personal view that is not politically correct, they can be screened out and barred from employment, and people have even lost their jobs for expressing themselves on social media.

I disremember when I read this, but someone said that it was good and right for The Big Company to monitor someone's activities. Really? We may cry "censorship" or "freedom of speech", but those do not apply so much here. That is, try to fight it in court on "free speech" grounds, and you'll probably lose. Your speech is regulated while on the company clock, vocal or written, and what you write can be monitored even though it's on your own time, on your own media accounts.

People misunderstand "free speech", then get surprised when they're fired for getting mouthy on social media. Sometimes employees are protected, but often, the employer may have a right to fire you. Worse, persecution is increasing, and Christians are being fired for expressing biblical views.

There are companies that don't really care what the typical employee does in his or her spare time as long as they do not claim to be representing The Big Company. That seems fair. My personal policy on social media is that people don't need to know where I work. This was brought home to me when a furious atheist on Twitter took exception to what I was saying, found out where I was working (my Linked In account was visible to the public back then), and said he was going to call the boss at The Big Company where I worked back then (and I mean big, a mult-million dollar corporation), and get me fired. Although they wouldn't care, they didn't need the nuisance, even if he did make contact.

An upset employee was badmouthing the customers ("*** idiots") of the company where she worked. Someone reported it, she was confronted, and fired. There have been times where people would post pictures and comments about co-workers, and lost their jobs. Freedom of speech? Not hardly! In addition, ridiculing The Company and its products, leaking proprietary information, and more are likely to get you terminated. In such cases, I agree with companies, big or small, who remove employees who embarrass them in that way, and who harass co-workers. People can get fired for being stupid with their Weblogs.

Getting fired for attempts to unionize, whistleblowing, and similar things are embarrassing to companies, but (as Remo says), "That's the biz, sweetheart!". Termination for such activities is illegal, and companies are setting themselves up for not only legal action, but potential lawsuits, since whistleblowing is not only legal, but in the public interest. Also, interfering with forming a union is illegal. Of course it is, unions are primarily outposts for the leftists in America these days!

People set up sites, Weblogs, and other things separate from The Big Company for their personal views. Sometimes, being fired for blogging is illegal, but there many factors to consider. People have been fired for expressing themselves on social media, on their own time, with their own equipment. This is one reason to consider using aliases, since the laws on being fired for your social media activities are muddled, and often difficult to enforce in the individual's favor. Many times, I have come across Weblogs that have a disclaimer that resembles, "The views expressed here are my own, and do not necessarily express the views of my employer". Sometimes, the employer is named ("...the views of my employer, Pernicious Whatzit Widgits" or so), which I'm not sure is such a good idea.

The Web is replete with examples of people who were fired for expressing their views — especially Christians. For example, newspaper editor Bob Eschliman was fired for writing Christian views against the Gaystapo and the Queen James Bible. I've seen similar examples where people expressing their views and not mentioning their employers lost their jobs.

We all know that companies are in business to make money. Some businesses care excessively about their image, so they slap leather with employees who express politically incorrect views. Atlanta Fire Chief Kevin Cochran wrote a book for a men's Bible study in his church. It had a short section about how homosexuality is in opposition to the Bible, and the Gay-K-K found out about it and had him fired. "Tolerance", my joyfully bouncing buttocks! I took a big risk by posting my article about homosexual "marriage" and the Bible on Weblogs, and my current or prospective future employers may not cotton to it. But it has no bearing on how I perform my job as a venomous snake wrangler at Pernicious Whatzit Widgits. 

Even so, laws or not, relevance to job performance or not, persecution of Christians is increasing. Saying that homosexuality is a sin and needs to be repented of just like all other sins (1 Cor. 6:9-11), saying that observable scientific evidence refutes evolutionism and supports biblical creation models, saying that Islam is a false and violent religion, saying that Jesus is the only way to salvation (John 14:6, Acts 4:12) — those can get me, and others, fired. In my case, it's unlikely, but possible. For other people, it is very possible, and I hope they check the links above for resources and information that may provide legal recourse.

People in high-profile positions may do well to use pseudonyms for their personal Weblogs, social media, and so forth. Greed is eternal, and persecution is increasing. But Jesus is still enthroned in Heaven, is coming back in the final Judgement, and wins in the end.

Evolution and Other False Salvation Efforts

At first, I didn't have any ideas for something to write for the 8th anniversary of Stormbringer's Thunder. A spam comment at The Question Evolution Project, some podcasts that I heard while working, and ideas came through my mind like stampeding cattle spooked by lightning. —Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Have you ever watched the TV show Restaurant Impossible? Chef Robert Irvine revamps failing restaurants and gives the owners new hope for success. He often has to not only deal with bad management (and frequently, bad food), but attempts to fix relationships as well. Many of the restaurants succeed, but there are quite a few that still fail or get sold. When I watch the show, I get to pondering on how the agreements and plans are akin to New Year's resolutions. The root problem still remains.

People get involved in "12 Steps" recovery programs that have a pretense at Christianity, but actually give a false gospel. We have bad feelings, so a shrink gives us medication to make us feel better. Various cults form so people can have a god that they can cotton to instead of the real God of the Bible. Same with the "seeker driven", Word of Faith "prosperity" heresies, hyper-charismatic excessive emphasis on tongues and use of false prophesies, liberal "Christianity", some seek salvation in religion without the Bible, and other tap dancing on the Bible movements. People even make a religion out of politics. The root problem still remains.

Evolutionists get burrs under their saddles when you mention this, but evolution has a religious nature to it. Just consider this for a spell. Evolution is originally a pagan religion (see discussion and documentation in "Evolution and the New Atheo-Fascism") and a cornerstone for the religion of atheism (and Secular Humanism, which is atheism in its Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes). But evolution can stand on its own as a religion. It has its creation mythology (usually the failed Big Bang hypothesis) and salvation (increasing order and complexity).

There are evolutionists who are evangelistic, seeking to destroy biblical creationism. (Also, many atheists want to destroy the faith of Christians while also justifying their own excuses for rebelling against God. Evolution is their primary shootin' iron.) Indeed, many are on a secularist jihad and ornerier than a burlap bag full of sidewinders. It's almost funny how some of these Darwinistas will call us "liars", "science deniers" (based on the sneaky bait-n-switch fallacy of equivocation, making "evolution" into "science"),  and even "compromisers", even though they have no grasp of the Bible that they disbelieve anyway! Worse for them, creationists often have to correct them on science and their own evolutionism beliefs. The most obstreperous atheopaths prefer to attack people with emotive language and accusations rather than intelligently discuss content, and become furious when their logical, theological, and scientific failings are pointed out.

In the area of origins, there are many compromisers. One of the first names many people think of is Hugh Ross, who uses bad theology and apologetics to deny the recent six-day creation, and he also advocates a local flood. His disciples try desperately to find excuses to avoid scientific evidence that refutes an old-earth view (see the short video, "Dr Mark H Armitage Responds To Dr Hugh Ross on Soft Tissue in Dinosaur Bones" for one example). Atheists are fond theistic evolutionists, and then old-earthers, since they're closer to atheism and willing to compromise on Scripture. They often work together to ridicule biblical creationists. Hugh Ross is being measured for a big millstone as we speak for denying scriptural authority and helping others do the same.

The spam link mentioned in the first paragraph really takes the rag off the bush. It takes you to a fundamentalist evolutionist site where evolutionism supposed is to stamp out all gods, lead us into an enlightened age, and usher in world peace. For those who want to see this train wreck and maybe count the logical fallacies, see "Evolutions Law". Even so, the root problem remains.

New Age religions offer buffet-style worldviews. It doesn't matter what you believe. A bit of Christianity, add some Hinduism, a heapin' helpin' of opinions (do not add reasoned epistemology, it wrecks the flavor) — and especially evolution. That's mandatory, old son. New Age is "do what you want" and "gay is okay", indulge in your pleasures and still be "spiritual". But the root problem remains.

That root problem is sin, and these things are false salvation efforts — other "gospels", if you will (Galatians 1:8). Any of them can help you feel good about who you are; you don't have to humble yourself before the real God, repent, and believe in Jesus for salvation for your sins. With these false salvation things, make all the decisions you want, have a wagon-load of good intentions, make promises, saddle up your own religion — you're still the same sinful you (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23). 

There are many man-made efforts for salvation. Evolution is one of the biggest, and is a cornerstone for many forms of rebellions against the authority of God's Word.

Back in Eden, the serpent threw aspersions on God's integrity by twisting God's words when asking, "Did God really say...?" (Genesis 3:1), calling God a liar (Genesis 3:4), and lying himself (Genesis 3:5). Man has wanted to be his own god from the beginning of creation, and even tries to pretend that God doesn't exist (Romans 1:20, Psalm 53:1). The religion of evolution helps foolish men build that faulty tower.

When atheists and evolutionists attack God's people for believing and standing on his Word, they are not exactly attacking the Christians, but God himself. Sure, they hate us, but they hate us more because God is in us (2 Timothy 1:14, 1 Corinthians 3:16). They attack us, they attack our Creator. Some call themselves "freethinkers", but they are Satan's hand puppets, under his control (John 8:44) and their eyes are blinded (2 Corinthians 4:4). Their mocking, deceived, blind selves seek to destroy the gospel (especially the message of biblical creation, which is the foundation of the gospel). They want to destroy the truth. God doesn't take kindly to people interfering with his people's understanding of the Bible (Mark 9:42, Revelation 22:18-19, 1 Corinthians 4:6, Proverbs 30:6). Hear that, Dr. Ross, Clinton Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye, Laurence Krauss, and others?

There is only one true salvation, and that is found in Jesus Christ, God the Son, the creator of the universe. To learn more about this, click on "Good news".

Brilliant Atheists, Agnostics Saving the World

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

This article is primarily about arrogant atheists, but there are also arrogant agnostics who side with them when maligning Christians. (Yes, I know that there are subdivisions of atheist and agnostic beliefs, but those strike me as arbitrary and inconsistent. The kind of agnostic that says, "I don't know if there is a God, but I'm open to the possibility" seems to be harder to find.) Some can't make up their minds if they're atheist or agnostic, flip-flopping between the two positions, but still delight in attacking Christians — especially biblical creationists.

When you wander into territory on the Web controlled by atheists, you'll invariably find posts by tinhorns who think they're geniuses because they are raising things about the Bible that they consider contradictions (which have been answered time and again for centuries), items that they reckon to be unfair (based on taking things out of context and subjecting them to their personal, uninformed biases), hasty generalizations (finding a religious person that is crazy as a loon or a Mohammedan murder, and using that to demonize "religion" as a whole), vilifying creationists in forums and Weblog comments, and so on.

Watch for how so many act like they're heroes, saving the world from Christians and creationists. Then they have a festival of self-congratulations with others who are stupidified by hate.

In an article that dealt with a question from an "agnostic" at Creation Ministries International, someone said, "Your logic is great and this supreme creator logic indeed fits the bill on how universe was created. However, you are failing to see one point". Really? Somehow, you are the only one to point this out to a ministry that has provided thousands of articles on creation science and apologetics? Not hardly! In a subsequent letter, the "agnostic" showed his true colors. See "Answering agnostic arguments" for both questions and responses.

In my last article, I was attacked by Ashley Haworth-Roberts after I repeatedly showed his bigotry and incompetence in using logic. Replying further bad reasoning, he used abusive ad hominems, the appeal to motive fallacy, cherry-picking, and more. He furiously said, "Go to hell liar Sorensen." Later, he posted a link to his Forum of Futility and added, "Go to hell liar Sorensen. The link showed that you are LYING. And you will censor this because you are a LYING s**t." (Does his atheistic "morality" require him to curse with asterisks? Weird.) He complained that I refused to post a forum link that he furnished, but I had linked to that forum twice in that article alone (I've done so in other posts as well), and even suggested that people to search them, as documented in this video. Apparently, people aren't clever enough to check things out for themselves, so he has to lead them by the nose.

Militant atheists and agnostics act like they're doing the world a favor by attacking Christianity and creation science. They promote their version of "reason", which is thinly-disguised bigotry. These people get angry when we refute their bad logic.

The hypocritical Freedom From Religion Foundation is attacking Christianity at every turn. They put up billboards mocking Christianity, protest giving away Bibles in public schools, and many other affronts to Christian life and practice. Interesting, when schools have events where Islam is promoted, you won't hear nary a peep from them. Liberal "Christians" join forces with Americans United for Separation of Church and State to protest the "Ark Encounter" of Answers in Genesis. News flash, old son, there is no "Constitutional separation of church and state". Don't believe me? Read the First Amendment yourself. There are many other examples of atheistic bigotry that we read about in the news. Then they wonder why people don't like them.

When creationists present scientific and biblical arguments for creation and refuting evolution, evolutionists come along and demand "equal time". They claim that people cannot make intelligent decisions unless they get both sides of the story. I've got some bad news for you, Sunshine, we are "equal time". Evolutionists and atheistic naturalists dominate the discussions, and our sides is not given accurate representation. We don't have to give you a platform on our sites, Pages, groups, or whatever. 

These people appear to think that everyone else are mindless sheep, and secularists need to save us from ourselves. What they don't realize is that we are promoting critical thinking and logic, and many people do think for themselves. Atheism and evolutionism do not tolerate scrutiny. Although these sidewinders want to appear that they are fighting for fairness and justice, it is thinly-disguised bigotry and attempting to further persecute Christians and creationists. 

To quote Bill "I'm Not A Scientist But I Play One On Television" Nye, "I find this troubling".

National Day of Unreason

"Humanists" (generally atheists) are making a rude gesture to Christians by having their so-called "National Day of Reason", fallaciously pretending that being an atheist makes you "reasonable", and being a Christian makes you unable to reason, on the same day as the American "National Day of Prayer". Of course, they already have their holiday, it's April 1, but I reckon they chose that day simply to be obstreperous.

For the National Day of Prayer, atheists and "Humanists" want a "National Day of Reason". However, they show precious little ability to show reason, or tolerance.

Atheists are getting more obnoxious all the time. Matt Slick of CARM was going to be involved in the National Day of Prayer on the Utah Capitol steps, but the atheists had already reserved that space. On April 27, 2015, Matt issued a debate challenge to the Idaho Humanist Association

To demonstrate that Idaho Humanists are confident, respectful, and rational, he was answered with a stampede of logical fallacies and outright libel. Christians get that a lot, especially when we can point out how those who claim to embrace "reason" are so unskilled at using it, and are driven by emotion instead of logic; they hate it when we out-reason them. You can listen to Matt's commentary at the beginning of these radio shows (free MP3 downloads), April 29 and April 30. EDIT 1: May 4 has some comments from the 15:15 mark through 24:45.

Speaking of libel, I had been advised to point out and refute blatant defamation by a furious bundle of incoherent apostate hatred, stalker troll tinhorn Ashley Haworth-Roberts. In other posts and articles, I have shown how "Haywire" is incoherent and illogical. Since a Christian Weblog was allowing misotheists to be recalcitrant and turn the thing into their own litterbox, personal attacks were left standing. I had to deal with something, and took screenshots of these things in case they are deleted from the Weblog in question (it had a good article), which would be smart because they are supporting libel and defamation by letting them stand. I added color to his remarks that does not appear in the originals.
ashleyhr said... I see that the fraud and coward Sorensen is falsely libelling me a 'bully' ('misotheist bully') behind my back on one of his blogs that he probably hoped I would not read: http://biblicalcreationandevangelism.blogspot.co.uk/ He loses the argument and exposes his anti-science bias and intellectual bankruptcy whenever we directly interact - so runs away, sulks, and then libels me on his blog where NO comments are permitted. May 4, 2015 at 1:27 PM (Comment now removed)
Below is my response to him (the first part is dealing with "Thomas Jefferson", a sidewinder who acted in a typical libelous atheopathic manner, and I did not bother to respond to his later defamation). Here is what I posted on May 5, 2015 (Comment now removedDespite claims that dark matter has been "found" in the universe, there is actually no direct observational evidence. In fact, dark matter is a conjecture based entirely on bad logic and naturalistic assumptions.):
I've thought long and hard about replying.

This is ridiculous. The Admin(s) tell people to act in a civil manner or their comments will be removed. What happens? Atheopaths turn it into a litter box, with no consequences. If you're going to be a party to allowing assertions, you could at least require evidence.

One resorts to logical fallacies, and when I point them out, he gets uppity and decides I'm not worthy of his attention, but cannot answer my challenges to his bad "reasoning".

The stalker attention whore (a bitter apostate who cannot string two logical thoughts together), meanwhile, continues to bring in irrelevant personal attacks, terrible logic, off-topic remarks, outside links, and more.

Since I've been called a liar by this liar, I'm going to address his latest attack. It would be fair to let this comment stand, since his multitudinous nonsense has been left untouched. Looks like he got kicked off that Forum of Futility and Hatred again (there was a complain that they're "bored rigid"), so he's bringing his garbage here.

"I see that the fraud and coward Sorensen"

Defamation. Look up ad hominem.

"is falsely libelling me a 'bully' ('misotheist bully') behind my back on one of his blogs that he probably hoped I would not read: http://biblicalcreationandevangelism.blogspot.co.uk/"

No, he's a stalker and reads my material almost every day. This is pretty much an appeal to motive fallacy, but he has no basis for his irrational claim that I "probably hoped" he would not read my Weblog. It is also further defamation, since there is no evidence provided that whatever remarks was made was about him. Everything is not about him, in case he did not know.

"He loses the argument"

Not true.

"and exposes his anti-science bias"

This is another defamatory lie, and a manipulation using conflation. He frequently pulls this stunt, and I have made it clear that I am in no wise anti-science (an amazingly vapid claim conflating "evolution" with "science", a sneaky bait 'n' switch from fundamentalist evolutionists).

"and intellectual bankruptcy"

Another ad hominem. How do I fallacy thee? Let me count the ways. But mostly personal attacks. I have repeatedly documented his failings in reasoning and morality.

"whenever we directly interact - so runs away, sulks, and then libels me on his blog where NO comments are permitted."

He does not even know what libel means. Whenever I show his failings, it's "Libel!" For that matter, biblical creationists are "liars", as you have seen here. Sweeping generalizations, and an apparent inability to understand the difference between expressing contrary interpretations of evidence and a demonstrated willingness to deceive.

As for the last lie, "on his blog where NO comments are permitted", first, he needs to demonstrate libel (I have shown repeatedly how he libels me, and he brags about his libels spamming.) No comments allowed? One time, he accused me of switching off the comments on Piltdown Superman because of him. Ego much? The truth is, that weblog never allowed comments for various reasons.

The one the liar was crying about, however, does allow comments. So does Stormbringer's Thunder, my original Weblog (see here).

Thanks for letting me set the record straight on a few things. If you want more documentation, go to Piltdown Superman and do a search for "haywire".

Unfortunately, since the inmates run the asylum here, I can no longer in good conscience promote this Weblog. I'm done here.
Harsh? Yes. Necessary? Absolutely, both legally and to show that Christians do not have to be Wimps for Jesus (look for Challenge-riposte paradigm here). I've dealt with harassment from this stalker for a long time. I won't show you the things he says about God, but it seems he can't make up his mind whether or not he's an atheist or agnostic.

So, what did I gain by proving that he is illogical and a liar?

ashleyhr said...

The fraud Sorensen is asking yet again for blatant censorship. 

The man is an evil hypocrite (or mentally challenged).

Sorensen - YOU are the liar. I have shown this many many times. Even in these threads - which you demand be censored

I am not and you CANNOT prove that I am.

His latest cowardly attack against me was not posted on his daily blog but an obscure one that few people know about. The link in question WAS about me Liar Bob.

If I commented at your propaganda page that I linked to you would INSTANTLY delete the comment. You are an extremist who wants anti-creationists silenced from the web. So you can pretend that you 'won' an argument. 

The rest of your reply is just pseudo-intellectual waffle. 

Are you still saying 'Lucy' will be 'shelved'? In your dreams. 

The Lake of Fire beckons Liar Bob.

Jason - I have more respect for you than for this arrogant dishonest bigot for Jesus who is utterly unteachable.
May 5, 2015 at 8:12 PM (Comment now removed)
Yep, further libel (this is supposed to be the comment link, but it's not working for me). (Professing atheists, agnostics, and evolutionists cannot account for morality). Not worth saddling up to deal with, he knows he's just blowing smoke. I believe he is not only insane, but is a demoniac. EDIT 2: I uploaded some screenshots documenting his misrepresentation, libel, disunderstanding of simple logic, hatred, and more, here. I really think he can't learn logic. Also, I said it looked like he had been kicked off that forum. Nope. Still playing the victim and continuing to libel. Here he is again, and most of Hitler's text are quotes from Haywire, and you can search here for the comments you'll see:

The example at the top with Matt Slick's dealings with a "Humanist", and my libelous harassment from a stalker (which is criminal activity, by the way, so he's in trouble for that as well as defamation) are typical examples of how "tolerant" and "rational" many atheists can be. 

These atheo-fascists are angry and bitter, and Their Father Down Below knows that time is running out, so he's pulling their strings even more. Also, they are upset because Christians are better equipped to use logic than they are, and the scientific evidence supports special Creation, refuting evolution. They need to repent while there's still time, else they're lost forever. Secularists will not have the final victory, that belongs to God.

Atheists and Anti-Creationists Ramp Up the Persecution

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

A quote that is misattributed to Voltaire reads, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." According to Evelyn Beatrice Hall, this was Voltaire's attitude toward material by Claude Adrien Helvétius. Voltaire is incorrectly called an atheist. He was actually a Deist who detested many religious dogmas, and believed in freedoms of religion and expression. The attitude of disapproving of what is said but defending the right to say it is sadly lacking in modern society; people screaming for "tolerance" are extremely intolerant.

Even a cursory search will show that there is intense persecution of Christians, especially in countries run by atheists and Mohammedans. And it's only beginning. Edit: Around the time that I published this article, "Stand Up for the Truth" had a segment on persecution. To hear that, click on "Is Christian Persecution Coming to America?" It's free to listen online or download. The segment that is relevant to this topic begins at the 22:15 mark. In addition, Doug McBurney's "The Weekly Worldview" podcast on the same day this was published had some material about how Christians are losing our freedoms. To hear Doug's uncompromising, direct, and sometimes humorous material (again, for free), click on "Criminal Christianity".

Persecution for Christians is not just something related to the Eastern world, but is increasing in the West. But here, we're not being dragged from our homes or churches and given public executions in organized murders. Not yet. Amazingly, some atheists claim that there is no persecution of Christians, and that they are the ones being persecuted! That ain't happening, old son, except in a few countries where (you guessed it) Mohammedans are in power. Good luck finding evidence of widespread persecution of atheists in Western countries, especially since secularism is favored.

I have said several times that atheists, leftists and anti-creationists want us silenced. Persecution of Christians and creationists in the West is currently relegated to leftist and atheistic activism, resulting in our rights to free speech and religious expression getting stripped away. Occasionally, the seething hatred and rage for Christ and his people boils over (see documentation in "Atheism's Faulty Moral Compass and Consequences"), but violence against us is not quite an organized effort yet.

Many atheists and anti-creationists want Christians and creationists silenced. Since active violence in persecution is rare so far in the Western world, how are they going about their efforts to silence us? This article has several links supporting claims that have been made.

"How do atheopaths and leftists try to silence you, Cowboy Bob?"

I'm glad you asked. In my experience and observations, they seek to negate what we have to say. This is going beyond simply disagreeing with what has been said and then giving a reasoned response as to why the disagreement. No, this kind of negation is rooted in hatred, and many logical fallacies such as ad hominem, appeal to ridicule, cherry picking the data (suppressed evidence), poisoning the well, straw man, equivocation, and others (see my "Logic Lessons" articles for more information). The point to such activities (in addition to expressing hate and rage) is to convince others to avoid even hearing what Christians and biblical creationists have to say. Why listen when we're "bad" and "stupid"? Unfortunately, people are not being taught to think for themselves, and "think" with their emotions, and atheopaths are very fond of manipulating emotions.

By the way, one tinhorn took the bait that I live in a trailer park, and used that for a point of mockery — as if someone's residence means that they have nothing to say.

If you visit forums, groups, and social media, you'll often find atheist material that is devoid of reason and heavy on the hate. Anyone with a grain of sense can see the blatant misrepresentations and Bible-bashing.

Also, they will misrepresent Christianity (indeed, all of "religion") by cherry-picking an article about dunderheads who happens to have a religious affiliation. Their "logic" is an attempt to manipulate emotions through ridicule, and it can be restated this way: "Here is a bad Christian. This indicates that the Bible is false. Therefore, there is no God and atheism is proven!" Not hardly! All these antics do is demonstrate how hatred interferes with actual thought. This is well in keeping with the rise of atheo-fascism. We get a lot of this at The Question Evolution Project.

It gets very bad on the cesspools of Twitter and YouTube, but I don't want to make this article too heavy on the graphics and slow down your browser. Three graphics are enough, wouldn't you say?

On a side note, Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Evolutionary Indoctrination — I mean, Science Education —  only wants the happy shining good face of Darwinism presented, and none of the controversy among evolutionists. That's not education, Eugene. People cannot think critically under deceptive conditions. See "Evolutionary Theory Evolves" for more.

To persecute creationists and Christians, personal attacks and caricatures are the beginning. Then we're vilified, and the intensity increases (I recommend that you read "The Rise of Anti-Christianity in the West"). Using straw man arguments and the claim that "Stupid beliefs make people do stupid things" (ironically used by militant atheists who have appallingly bad reasoning abilities and do very stupid things themselves), they appeal to the unreasonable fear that "religious" people will think that "God told me to kill people", or some such notion. If people bothered to examine the Bible instead of listening to what militant atheists tell them what it says, they would find no justification for the actions of isolated owlhoots who hear voices; the Bible teaches love for enemies and presenting the gospel message, not attacking them on the streets.

Now for the subject of trolling (no, I'm not heading off on a new trail, just ride with me a mite longer, we'll come back). Trolling has been around teh interwebs for decades. I reckon that many people have done a little bit of it in the past, and may so some now and then to provoke reactions. But serious trolls are often very disturbed indeed. It is interesting that militant atheists seem to be the ones doing most of the trolling, and they have exhibited many signs of being mentally unbalanced (see "It All Adds Up — Many Atheists Are Nuts" for more information and documentation). But I maintain that it's not just about intellect and some mental aberrations, it's a spiritual matter (Romans 1:18-24). This is called the "noetic effects of sin". These people are in rebellion against God and the authority of his Word.

A Texas-sized irony is that anti-creationists and atheists who go on the attack are claiming to have a moral obligation to abuse, ridicule, negate, and even silence their opposition. Where do they get their "moral obligation"? Imagination and hatred, mostly. Oh, and redefining reality to suit their presuppositions helps loads.

What do we learn from all of this? Active persecution of Christians is rampant in the East, but is currently more subdued in the West. Currently, persecution is in the realm of legislation, as well as attempts to manipulate emotions so that people will despise a false image of creationists and Christians; can't have people learning what we actually believe and teach, no sireee. Although trolling is occasionally done by people wanting to stir the pot, a great deal of it is done by atheists and anti-creationists who want to silence Christians and biblical creationists. (The atheists and evolutionists who do not engage in this kind of behavior are strangely silent. Indeed, they give tacit approval by not rebuking their own for acting up. Too bad people with Voltaire's truly tolerant attitudes are fading away.) It is not just a mental problem, but a spiritual problem because they are in rebellion against God and his Word.

We will suffer persecution, that's guaranteed (2 Timothy 3:12, John 15:20), and they are adding to our reward in heaven (Matthew 5:12). Even so, we must remain faithful and proclaim the truth. It helps to learn how some of these are manipulating others, show the errors, and encourage people to think for themselves. No matter what, we give glory to God!
