Talk Show Host Attacks Christians For Not Believing

Former writer and producer of CNN,  radio talk show host since 1987, Mike Malloy made a derogatory comment in light of the storms which ravaged the South where he suggests that those storms were God’s way of punishing Christians for not believing in science. In reality, it is not “science” in which he alludes to but rather “evolution.” All too often, many liberals interchange the wording which tries to create an illusion of a riff between Christianity and science.

The real riff lies with Christianity and Evolution! Science is merely a tool to expand knowledge, it a defined method which includes carefully controlled experiments with provisional conclusions that are discussed and debated. Studying DNA for example would be hardly anti-biblical but to say it evolved into man over many millions of years, then it becomes anti-biblical.  So this is hardly being “anti-science” rather it’s “anti-evolution.”

In light of his comment going viral over the internet, Mike Malloy made this comment

“During my program last Friday night, I commented on the potential for destruction caused by the tornadoes that were moving through the south with historic fury. First and foremost, I sincerely apologize for the inflammatory language that I used, and for the anger and pain that came as a result of my comments. “

“Those comments, as published on various blog sites, were lifted out of context from a larger point I was making about the hypocrisy of many political leaders and commentators who refuse to acknowledge science, logic and fact in assessing disasters such as this one. That said, my language was unnecessarily harsh in light of the lives that would be lost later that evening.” 

“I have nothing but the most heartfelt sympathy for those families who were devastated by those tragic storms. I will say again I am sincerely sorry for the pain and anger my comments evoked. I made a mistake, I was wrong, and I will not let it happen again.”

Despite his own mistake on his little known talk-show, he tried blaming blogs who carried his story to the mainstream before taking his own responsibility.  No Mike Mallory, we refuse to worship evolution which takes more faith but embrace science as a great tool which confirms the Bible, science which improves the standard of living such as medicine, technology in general and so on.

  1. Quoth Michael—

    Former writer and producer of CNN, radio talk show host since 1987, Mike Malloy made a derogatory comment in light of the storms which ravaged the South where he suggests that those storms were God’s way of punishing Christians for not believing in science.

    Quoth Chuck Colson (“Breakpoint,” Sept. 12, 2005)—

    “Did God have anything to do with Katrina?,” people ask. My answer is, he allowed it and perhaps he allowed it to get our attention so that we don’t delude ourselves into thinking that all we have to do is put things back the way they were and life will be normal again.

    The only difference between those two statements is that Malloy was joking, while Colson was serious.

  2. The real riff [0] lies with Christianity and Evolution! Science is merely a tool to expand knowledge, it a defined method which includes carefully controlled experiments with provisional conclusions that are discussed and debated.

    So how is evolution not scientific under your definition? It is supported by field work, experiments, and logical inferences. Variation, natural selection, and new species have been observed countless times.

    Creationism, on the other hand, has never conducted any experiments, has no “provisional” conclusions, and is never debated among its proponents. No acts of new creation have ever been observed.

    Umder your own definition, evolution is science, and creationism is not.

    Studying DNA for example would be hardly anti-biblical but to say it evolved into man over many millions of years, then it becomes anti-biblical. So this is hardly being “anti-science” rather it’s “anti-evolution.”

    So what Michael is really saying is not that evolution is not scientuific, but that it is not biblical. These are two entirely different matters, as everyone esle knows. In Michael’s eyes, however, they seem to be the same.

    All too often, many liberals interchange the wording which tries to create an illusion of a riff [1] between Christianity and science.

    Wrong. Evolution is a problem only for a small but vocal tribe of people who wrapt themselves in the blanket of a theology that has been refuted again and again over two thousand years

    Michael opposes science, because he picks and chooses which aspects to accept based upon a preconceived religious doctrine. Quantum theory, chemical bondoing, electromagnetism, nuclear fusion—OK. Evolution, cosmology, climate change, atomic decay, complex systems theory—Not OK. Sorry, Michael, science doesn’t work tht way.; it’s all part of one big whole.[2]

    ================

    [0] Michael, we’re a little puzzled as to how either evolution or science has anything to do with a short, repeated musical phrase.

    [1] So it was not a typo. It was pure ignorance of the English language.

    [2] For example, if atomic decay rates changed over time, then nuclear fusion wouldn’t work, and the Sun would stop shining. But, so far . . .
