Tabloids are big business. You find them in supermarkets, newsstands, beautyshops and just about everywhere else. The king of the slander sheets, these publications are so exaggerated that they can make roawing lions and tigers out of sweet puring pussy cats.
How can they have any creditability when they publish articles like, "UFO Attacks Texas Air Show", "Garden Of Eden Found" and Hillary Clinton Adopts Allien Baby", not to mention the best one of all, "Ten Year Old Girl Hits Home Run, And Then Has Baby"? Wow !
These exaggerations, distortions and outright lies also extend into talk radio and even the legitmate press.
I was riding in a taxi the other day, and the driver had a "Christian" station on the car radio. The narrator was peaching a long serman on how homosexual were planning to burn the Bible.
Burn the Bible ! Now, I do not doubt that there are homosexuals who would like to do that very thing. After all, every movement has its lunatic fringe. But I can guarantee you that if such a movement were underway, you wouldn't need that preacher to tell you about it. It would be all over television and in every newspaper of any size. It would be a bigger story than the "Monkey Trial" in Tennessee. [ For more on the MonkeyTrial search the internet under The Scopes Trial and also the movie, "Inhert The Wind". Fundamentalists still flasely claim victory. ]
The Bible is a very valuable book, if for no other reason that is the only acient book that is widely read in the English speaking world. It gives us great insight into what acient people believed and how they lived. However, it is not a modern scientific book. This is where the trouble is.
This is a fact that many people will not accept,. no matter how much evidence there is to the contary, a great deal of tablod like distoration,lies and deceit are involved in this, which go beyond honest debate.
Please go down farther, text did not transfer as it ahould have.
The University Of Calf. will no longer accept as credit for admission ,biology courses that use a textbook published by Bob Jones University Press , that expound creationism. I have debated evolution vs creationism over the internet. and have seen all kinds of highly questionable evidence presented by creationest.s.
For example, They denied that dinosaurs never existed as long as they could. and now that they can no longer do this, they are trying to claim that dinosaurs and human once lived together as late as the flood mentioned in the Bible. For proof of this they present cave drawing of dragons that bare no resemblance to any known dinosaurs. Dragons are mentioned in the Bible and were a common belief among acient people.
They often try to gain creditability by quoting some Harvard professor who is a creationist. What they dare not tell you is how many of his colleague agreed with him.
While I regard Harvard with the highest regards, not too many years ago, one of their professors wrote a book trying to prove that black people were less intelligent than white ones, because black people had sightly smaller brains. If this were true then elephants and whales would be more intelligent than humans.
Now that the presidental election is only about two months away, anti obama books are riding high. The most important of these is "Obama Nation", which tries to falsely protray Obama as a closet muslim and black activist drug user, using tabloid like rhetoric. It has already made "The New York Times" best seller list.
