Two Scientists Walk into a Field
So two scientists walk into a field. One of them is named Jethro, and the other Jimbob. While they are walking, they come across a wide open area where the grass is smashed down. They look at each other inquisitively, and Jethro says, "This is interesting, we need to study this."
Jimbob says, "Yes, you're absolutely right. It's a good thing we were able to stuff our white lab coats into our fanny packs."
"Good indeed," says Jethro.
So they unwrinkle their white coats as best they can, and they get to work. They notice how the grass appears to be smashed down intermittently, which leaves some grass still standing as if it hadn't been touched. They look at each other and simultaneously say, "Interesting."
Then they see foot prints that lead into a nearby corn field, and this really gets the wheels turning in their minds. This time they look at each other and say, "Very Interesting," both with smiles ear to ear.
Jimbob is very excited and says, "Can you believe what we have found?!"
"No!" Says Jethro thoughtfully, "What have we found?"
Jimbob says, "Clearly an alien spaceship landed, they got out, had a party, went to the corn field, came back, and left."
Jethro replies, "You got all that from this grass having been moved around?"
Jimbob says, "Of course. Can't you see the spots of grass that aren't touched, that shows it was an alien spaceship. You see, an alien spaceship would have rings along the bottom which would make parts of the ship touch the ground, but leave other parts of the ground untouched."
"You've seen an alien spaceship?" Says Jethro, doubtingly.
"No Jethro, you don't need to see it, there is overwhelming evidence that if aliens existed and had spaceships, that is how they would make it." Said Jimbob, not understanding all of Jethro's questions.
"Really? Where is that evidence? Can I see it? That sounds cool!" Jethro was excited.
Jimbob said, "Sure no problem." So he reached into his back pocket and pulled out a drawing of a spaceship.
Jethro, disappointed said, "Jimbob, this is one of your drawings, this isn't proof."
Jimbob replied, "Jethro, what does my white lab coat say?"
"It says that you are the head of the science department at Darwin University", replied Jethro.
"That's correct, and what does your white lab coat say?" Jimbob was very smug.
"It says that I'm a lowly scientist who works in the science department at Darwin University who loves his job, and would like to keep it, so I better agree with everything you say." Jethro knew where this was going.
"Correct again. So let me ask you again, is this picture proof of what an alien spaceship would look like if aliens existed and had spaceships?" Jimbob crossed his arms waiting for Jethro's reply.
Jethro replied, "Absolutely, this is clearly undeniable, indisputable evidence that an alien spaceship landed, they had a party, went into the corn field, came back, and left."
"I knew it!" Said Jimbob, thrilled. "And since you've already agreed, I can publish these findings because I've been peer-reviewed! What a find!"
It was just then that Graham Wellington, the owner of the farm where the scientists were "testing" pulled up in his truck and said, "Hey Fellas, you guys checkin' out where the cows slept last night?"
Jimbob, enraged said, "Liar! You're a liar! No cows slept here, this was clearly, undeniably, indisputably an alien landing spot. And people like you who don't see the evidence are dangerous."
Graham was taken back and said, "Hold on now buddy, I'm not sure I follow you. This is where the cows always sleep, don't you see the "gifts" they left behind over there?"
Jethro, needing to chime in said, "The cows did that because they got scared when they saw the alien ship coming down! This can't be questioned! Aliens landed here!"
Graham just laughed and said, "Okay boys, whatever you say, I'm just a farmer. Just make sure you guys are gone when my cows come back." He hopped back into his truck and left.
"What an idiot!" said Jimbob.
"Yea," said Jethro, "What an absolute moron he is. It's uneducated fools like this who are destroying the world. They are just so stupid and dumb, and stupid, and uneducated. And I bet they're. . .hillbillies! And. . .jerks! And. . .liars!
"It's true," said Jimbob, "Now let's go and publish our factual findings."
"Let's," said Jethro.
In case any of you ever forget, scientists are just people. People who can lie, fabricate evidence, and then lie some more. They're also people who have a profound ability to group think, and then believe that because they agree, they must be right.
Christians can't fall into the "evidence" and "proof" trap, because scientists HAVE NO EVIDENCE of their claims. No evidence of the big bang, primordial soup, or single-celled organisms that magically grew into human beings.
Think for a moment. Has an explosion ever resulted in order? Have you ever seen primordial soup? Has anyone? No, it was someone's imagination. Has anyone seen a dog become a cat or vice versa? No, again, it's just someone's imagination.
And don't let them tell you that you need to prove God. it's pure nonsense to claim that God needs to be proven. If I were to tell you that the computer I'm typing on right now magically appeared out of thin air, what would you think of me? Well, you need to feel the same way when someone suggests that everything in the entire universe magically appeared. Again, it's nonsense, and it's okay to act accordingly.
Christians, come out of the shadows and let your voices be heard. This shouldn't be all that hard when we consider that the voices trying to shout us down are spewing nothing more than poorly constructed fairy tales.
