The Bible’s Greatest Hits – Week 27: John 4:32

Hello all and welcome to this post-War on Christmas edition of The Bible’s Greatest Hits. I hope you all survived the gluttony, in-laws, and other such terrors. Speaking of terrors, it appears that Creation Today, Eric Hovind’s  webcam diary, has joined up with some other reality denialists to create a 3D film of the book of Genesis using the same techniques as James Cameron’s Avatar.

That makes the Transformers series a compelling parable for ID, and I expect several of this year’s Republican presidential candidates to recommend the movies on that basis alone.

Obviously, Ken Ham is going to be jealous that he didn’t think of it first.
