Bob Sorensen Passes Judgement, Apparently Without Reading What He’s Judged…
For some reason the Christian Post website seems to think that Creationist pip-squeak Bob Sorensen is the ‘go to guy’ when they want a quote from a Creatard, and have asked for his ‘opinion’ on the following story –
An atheist professor will soon be releasing the hardback version of a book chronicling his experiences attending creation science conferences and sites.
Already available on Kindle and Nook, Jason Rosenhouse‘s book, titled Among the Creationists: Dispatches from the Anti-Evolution Frontline, includes details about his visits, including to the Creation Museum.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Rosenhouse, who is an associate professor of mathematics at James Madison University in Virginia, explained his reasons for writing the book.
“In May 2000, having just finished my graduate studies in mathematics, I began a post-doc at Kansas State University. This was when the fracas over their science standards was still in full swing,” said Rosenhouse.
“I found out about a conference for religious homeschoolers to be held in Wichita…It turned out that all of the keynote speakers at the conference were from Answers in Genesis. This led me to become interested in learning more about the science of evolution and what my fellow conference attendees thought about it.”
Now, considering that Bob is only just boasting about having been contacted by the CP today, I can’t imagine he’s had much time to read Rosenhouse’s book, but that hasn’t stopped him from opining on it –
Bob Sorensen, who is part of the “Question Evolution Project,” told CP that he felt Rosenhouse’s account of Creation Science conferences is one that is harmed by Rosenhouse’s “own biases and presuppositions.”
“He complained about the lack of ‘scholarly literature in this area.’ Yet, there are many technical articles from a variety of scientific disciplines available online. Did he bother to check those, and the credentials of the creationist scientists?” said Sorensen.
“Frankly, most evolutionists that I have encountered online who attempt to discredit creation science are woefully uninformed as to what is really taught and believed by creationists.”
Is that so, Bob? Perhaps you didn’t read this?
He goes on to take a poorly aimed swipe at the recent Reason Rally –
Sorensen, however, said the Reason Rally was another example of “New Atheists” co-opting terms like “rational” and “realist” even when their arguments lack reason.
“I have stopped many atheists in their tracks who call themselves ‘rational’ and who love ‘reason,’ but utilize the most basic logical fallacies,” said Sorensen.
“Some of the greatest scientists, past and present, have been Bible-believing Christians. We need to reclaim the ground that has been surrendered to secularists, and realize that God gave us minds to use.”
Bob, I know you’re very very deeply deluded, but surely even you realise that you’ve never stopped a single non-believer ‘in their tracks’ with your complete failure to understand even the basics of logical reasoning.
The Christian Post would have got more sense out of a donkey.
