Posted on 05/03/2014 5:12:40 AM PDT by Gamecock
STORRS, Conn. A University of Connecticut professor asserted that he came from an ape on Tuesday as he went wild during a campus gospel presentation that included discussion on evolution.
James Boster, Professor of Anthropology at University of Connecticut, spent over two hours attempting to draw students away from several evangelists that were open-air preaching and distributing gospel literature on campus.
Evangelist Don Karns of Hampton, Virginia told Christian News Network that Boster approached him as he was holding a sign about evolution and became condescending and confrontational.
He asked me if I had accepted Darwin as my lord and savior, Karns stated. He was very agitated, very demonstrative. It was very unbecoming of a professor.
Minutes later, Boster also began to heckle campus tour coordinator Scott Smith of Schoolmaster Ministries of Raleigh, North Carolina as he preached.
As I was pointing to ChristI was talking about the sin natureI said, Theres probably some people out theremaybe even professorswho think they descended from monkeys, Smith recalled. [Boster] jumped off the ground and came running over and basically started screaming, I did not come from a monkey! I came from an ape!
He got about two inches from my nose, he noted. You could tell he was going to pop.
Karns states that Boster then confronted him a second time, using profanity and likewise coming closely to his face. Andrew Rappaport of Striving for Eternity Ministries in Jackson, New Jersey witnessed Boster as he began presenting a speech in an attempt to stir up the students.
He started to address the students as My brothers and sisters of Darwin, he recalled.
I want you to join me in saying, Praise Darwin! Boster declared, as the students echoed his refrain. Amen! he proclaimed.
Boster then instructed the students to feel your spiritual kinship not just with other humans, but also with your fellow mammals.
We are all bonded together in that great spiritual web, he stated. The divine saturates nature the way that gravy saturates cornbread.
As Rappaport began preaching, Boster again became agitated, and at one point began shouting in Polish.
He literally got two inches from my face and started yelling at me that I was ignorant, Rappaport said. I start trying to transition to the gospel and he then tried to get the crowd to tell me to shut up.
He was being rude. He was talking over me, he remembered. He was yelling at me, and I tried to say, Can we have a reasonable discussion? But he asked a question and then talked right over me.
Rappaport said that although Boster claimed that he was now going to conduct open-air Darwinism on campus as a result of the preaching, he remained open to further discussion and was willing to exchange emails.
Smith, a former prep school teacher and headmaster, expressed a concern for Bosters soul and eternal salvation.
We obviously care about this professor and the students at UConn, and we long for them to find the liberty and freedom from sin in serving Jesus, he stated.
Boster could not be reached for comment.
Sounds like a pass-the-popcorn fun event, actually.
Wow, he must really hate his mother.....
For some reason this snippet of Scripture came to mind: ... He was driven from among men and ate grass like an ox, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair grew as long as eagles' feathers, and his nails were like birds' claws. (Daniel 4:33 ESV)
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Why don’t these enlightened professors of knowledge ever challenge Islamic beliefs at campus Muslim outreach centers or Black Christians and their belief in Creationism?
Somehow ONLY white Christians are attacked.
He asked me if I had accepted Darwin as my lord... “
Answer: “Is saying I believe the socialist faculty are Satan’s minions, OK?”
The Duke blue or the Carolina blue? ;-)
If a Christian had behaved this way six cops would have tazed him, thrown him into a paddy wagon, then gone to his house and shot his dogs.
But liberals can act anyway they want, and get as belligerent as they want. That’s all ok. Equal justice under the law.
I was gonna say.. both look blue ;)
I bet it’s the blue on the left doing the yelling..
Tenure was designed to protect people from academic persecution, like Warmists getting a real scientist fired, not to protect academics from having to answer for being A-holes and kooks.
That's specist! Damn elitist thinks he's too good for birds and reptiles.
I DID NOT COME FROM A MONKEY! I CAME FROM AN AAAAAPE!!!!
As far as I’m concerned, the immaculation/deification/sainthood of one Ba-rack Hussein Obama, is the Kodak moment, proving:
‘D’at d’ere ain’t no sumbitch born on d’is here Oit’, d’at done gonna be dah poison to git y’all on dah right track! D’at’s fer YOU an’ dah man upstairs tuh do, no body but YOU. D’at d’ere pro-fessor, jus’ might wanna talk to dah lady d’at had dah chimp bite her face off. She jus’ might have sumptin’ to say to him.’
Isn’t it interesting how Libs are given a free pass to insult and harass Christians on campus. Imagine what would have happened to this prof if he had harassed a Muslim student group.
Another liberal showing their childishness and immaturity. Ridicule is all they have because their ideas and core beliefs are bankrupt.
Standard procedure when they are losing an argument or can’t present a coherent, logical opinion.
The professor had to put on a show for the skulls full of mush on campus.
Doesn’t getting that close to a person constitute an assault?
“Officer,I was afraid of bodily harm or worse so I put him on the ground.”
Conservatives believe we were created by God, Leftists believe they were descended from apes. As a squishy Moderate, I believe both may be correct.
Ironically, this ideologue has a paper entitled, “The Value of Cognitive Diversity”.
