Worst Propaganda Ever

For some reason, this piece of crap popped up on Facebook. I live in San Antonio, I’m used to stupid creationist bull, but this is the most comical variety. Look, speculations about the genesis of the Universe are a dime a dozen and there are plenty of physicists working on those questions, so this ridiculous clap-trap is pure comedy gold. Observe and be amazed:

So here’s the question: if originally–bazillions of years ago–there was Absolutely Nothing, wouldn’t there be Absolutely Nothing now?

Yes. For something–no matter how small–cannot come from Absolutely Nothing. We would still have Absolutely Nothing.

It can burn down the whole house and kill everyone inside. Sex is like that fire. ”

    Now go back and it read it in a Barry White voice, and it just sounds like they’re boasting about their technique.

    I also find it amusing that it’s a cookie-cutter website by Campus Crusade for Christ. Just fill in the second half of the domain name with another collegiate mascot (e.g. and you’ll go to a similar website, just with different school colors. They even own

    Quantum mechanic theories have shown and experiments have validated that something can indeed come from nothing, and does so constantly.
