Lightbulb VOA physics article draws Christian ire, my rebuttal
http://blogs.voanews.com/science-world/2...nt-in-time

Oh my stars, ROTFLOL! Voice of America has an article about a recent experiment with bending light, that draws the ire of a religious nut saying the physicists “are playing God.” I had to respond to the alleged “love of physics” this chowderhead claimed in my response to this fellow’s comment on Science World’s blog, starting with “Put down the holy book and back away from the science table slowly. . . .”

The author writes: I have reached the pinnacle of my cartooning career if I could get a koala and a goat making love on CNN.

Because dem sciency people larnin' things ain't whut God wanted for us peoples. Loogit da story of Adam & Eve, eatin' from dat dere tree o' knowledge. Dey got punished fer it and we did too 'cuz God in his infinite wisdom wants us to be as stoopid as we is. Now if y'all 'scuze me I got to go pick boogers from my nose and drool on m'self.
Christian apologetics is the art of rolling a dog turd in sugar and selling it as a donut.

"Don't play God" Ladies and gentleman, this is the reason why religion had dramatically slow down the progress of science and should only belong in the middle age.
