CNN Contributor Erick Erickson’s Right Wing Manifesto of Magical Thinking

Welcome to the Dark Ages

You know how I said yesterday was Right Wing Anti-Science Day? Well, I was wrong, because every day is right wing anti-science day! And today we have a real howler of an anti-rational manifesto, courtesy of CNN contributor Erick Erickson.

I have to give credit where it’s due: Erickson does not try to dodge the issue, like Marco Rubio did. He’s anti-science and extremely proud of it, and he wants the world to know.

I reject evolution for the sake of evolution and reject that life on this planet, let alone the existence of this universe, is some random act. I reject that we are little better than the animals we evolved from because I reject that we evolved from anything other than God’s own mind. We were created in his image. We did not evolve into it. The only people certain in their belief on this matter are those who accept theory as fact and Truth as mythology.

[…Bible quote…]

The difference between the atheist and secular set on the left and even the right is that while they and I can think the Earth is billions of years old and they and I can think there was a big bang starting it all, we really do not know for sure and they absolutely do not know what came before the big bang. But I do.

[…Bible quote…]

But let’s not stop there. Because once every Christian politician in the country has answered that question, the secular set will just move on. Let me move on first.

Yes, I believe there was an Adam and I believe there was an Eve.

Yes, I believe there were two cities named Sodom and Gomorrah and yes I do believe they were destroyed for rampant sin including deviating from God’s intentions sexually.

Yes, I believe there was a man named Noah who spent 100 years building a giant boat and I do believe there was a great flood and the survivors of which were all on that boat.

And yes, I do believe there was a man named Jonah who was swallowed up by a great big fish and survived.

Above all those things, I do believe God came down to Earth in the form of Jesus

[…Bible quote…]

I absolutely believe it. I absolutely believe if by that time a person has not chosen Christ, he will end up in a very bad place. I believe in Heaven and Hell and the battle that rages between the two on a higher plane than we can often see.

Meanwhile, these secularists and atheists cannot even be honest about when life begins.

If you don’t follow Erickson’s brand of Biblical literalism, you’re simply not a Christian:

If you do not believe in the miraculous, you are not a Christian; it is as simple as that.

And if you’re not a Christian by his definition, and you don’t subscribe to his medieval magical thinking, you are doomed to burn in the eternal fires of hell, you filthy secularist hypocrite.

Many of the things I believe are miracles. Many of the things I believe have come to pass. Christ told us that those who were with him would be opposed by this world. The secularists of this world, I believe, can embrace fully contradictory things like support for gay rights and the advance of Islam into the Western World, because those things come from this world, not from Christ. The left is perfectly capable of contradiction and hypocrisy because they believe in nothing so much as themselves and the things of this world. Therefore, to them, there can be no contradiction and no hypocrisy in their world unless it comes from those who fail to meet the standards set by the faith of so many Christians.

He concludes with:

Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Holiday.

Unless you’re burning in the eternal fires of hell, that is.
