RUSH: I'm just going to tell you why I don't believe this stuff.

CALLER: Okay.

RUSH: I believe in Creation.

CALLER: Mmm-hmm.

RUSH: I believe in God.

We can't even explain the existence of the earth, scientifically. We've got to go back to something called the Big Bang, and then we've got to try to make guesses as to we were all spermazoid, promozoics. We came out of the ocean. We walked four legs and two legs, but nobody really knows for sure. We have these theories. There were the other day some theory was just debunked big time and I don't remember off the top of my head what it is, but the idea if you look at this planet and you look at all the changes this planet has undergone that we can document historical for thousands of years, the forces that cause change on this planet dwarf the combined efforts of all human beings today.

Excellent notes about creation/evolution from Professor Limbaugh. This was the show used as Labor Day's Best-of. I'm very thankful I was able to hear it.

(((Creationist Ping)))



You have been pinged because of your interest in matters of Creation vs. Evolution, Creation trumping evolution, and evolutionary fraud. Freep-mail me if you want on/off this list.

Colossians 1:16 "For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him."



I've pointed out before that in the new Blogospheric age, we do not have to accept everything that scientists tell us as concrete fact. The science elites have told us evolution is true for a long time, and they tell us global warming is true. Healthy skepticm in both cases (at least!) should be exercised.

What's Rush doing? Doesn't he read FreeRepublic? According to the evolutionists on this forum he's now officially an uneducated idiot.

I think this entire issue is funny. I took a class at Ohio State a few years ago which covered environmental laws and such. In the class we talked about how the US has a policy to halt all forest fires in Yellowstone to protect the trees and the forest. After we did this, we started watching the forests die off, because nothing was being replaced. They realized that the problem was being caused by the act of putting out the fire itself. When they put out a fire, it prevented the forest from destroying the older trees and repalcing them with newer trees. So if man interefered, the forest dies off, because they weren't being replaced. This of course applies to natural fires only (caused by lightning, droughts, etc.) any man-made fire is put out, or so I was told. At any rate, even more interesting being taught in this class is that the concepts of "nature" are flawed. The concepts of nature used to create the national park system was based on the fact that these areas were absent the prescence of man, yet they keep finding indian artifacts and such there. Doesn't seem to hold the effort in its proper light. And keep in mind that in order to protect nature, we open it up to the public for parks and recreation.

Rush really needs to avoid lecturing on the topic of technology and particularly science. It does not matter if the topic is controversial or not, he routinely touts science that is as bad as the left-wing nutjobs he debates with. In the end, the whole thing is an embarrassment and certainly does not reflect favorably on the human race that both sides of an issue can be talking nonsense AND disagreeing. When he waxes "scientific", it is the only time I change the channel because it is unbearably bad. The left-wing pseudo-science is bad, but Rush is just contributing more noise rather than signal. Rush is not a scientist or even science educated, so I don't expect him to be knowledgeable; politics is his expertise, and he should stick with it.

Incidentally, the ozone hole is a very different thing from global warming, and unlike global warming which is genuinely debateable, the ozone hole issue is much clearer.

Well, my reaction to that is, if there's nothing we can do to stop it, then there's no way we could have caused it.

Desertification from overfarming and land clearance is a real phenomenon. You can't stop desertification. Once you've effed it up, it's effed up.

This reminds me of an old story about one of Ronald Reagan's advisors. According to the liberal press, he once said we didn't need to worry about the environment because God was coming back soon, and this would happen before we destroyed the environment.

I don't know if the story is true or not, but Rush's dialog here is really scary. It's like a kid with matches and gasoline who has no fear because mommy always protects him.

By the way, does the word "dominion" mean anything to anyone? Does it imply any responsibility at all?

Thou hast given him dominion over the works of Thy hands;
Thou hast put all things under his feet.

The Great Rushbo has spoken. And we all know how impressive his academic and scientific credentials, especially those in the fields of biology and climatology, truly are.

I guess we just need to pack up our marbles and go home.

Rush's recent extended conversations with callers who are able to have extended conservations and have vastly different points of view than Rush are interesting. Some of the callers are representative of widely-held erroneous opinions, so if Rush can at least converse with them it is good work. Maybe some Rushbots don't like it, but converting or actually trying to convert mindless Libs to thoughtful Conservatives or to at least thoughtful Libs is a move in the right direction.

Rush is a straight-up honest guy who's willing to look at the evidence and determine what the most likely conclusions to be drawn from the evidence are, and there's no other answer. The basic evidence you get looking at our living world is that it was created.

The same enviro-wackos and left wing scientists that STRONGLY object to any mention of a creator ARE THE SAME people who insist on teach "Gaea Principle" to their science clases. "Gaea Principle" is that the Earth is a LIVING, Breathing organism. (some say intelligent orthers just a living individual organism) Humans are just an microbe on the body like som man bacteria in the intestine.

It is worth noting the double standard.

Obviously, Rush is an embarrassment to conservatism and he should slink away into obscurity.(at least according to the evos on this site)

(((GLOBAL WARMING PING)))



You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming. Freep-mail me to get on or off.



This was replayed as the best-of show yesterday, and I thought I'd give it a bump with the global warming ping list.

They mention things like the Ozone Hole® here, which compells me to post a few links to read up on the Ozone Hole®.

Measurements indicate the ozone hole® is natural

New window into ancient ozone holes® (Ozone Hole® is nothing new)

NASA's AURA satellite peers into Earth's ozone hole® (Smaller than in previous years)

The last article above also points out that we have only been measuring the Ozone Hole® for 26 years. (First measurements taken in 1979)

Do we HONESTLY expect to have little to no flunctuations in a hole that big by measuring data for 26 years?? If you believe evolutionists (which Rush doesn't, by the way, judging from this transcript and the quote I highlight in the first comment) then this is scarcely a tiny drop of moisture in the vat of time they call billions of years.

Ya can't be right about everything, all of the time. As much as I like Rush, I agree with him maybe 85% of the time.
