Sad Comment On Those That Thought The World Would End On 12/21/12
To me, a kook is someone with a weird, fanatical or collectively objectionable confidence or mania which fogs their entire reality. I also like the words, half-baked and oddball which are often used interchangeably with the word, title or moniker of kook. Though these last stipulations have a stronger unconstructive stain than the word kook, but they all, in my mind, apply to any pseudo-scientist, such as, Zecharia Sitchin. He is only one of many types of kooks, which also include pious activists, unsophisticated philosophers and all mythology. Listen to this for an example of kook credentials, ever heard of Anglo-Israelism? It’s the very mistaken proposal that the Anglo-Saxons are true descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Not even possible. Then there are the multiple UFO faiths, like the Raelian Church and Unarius, with these positive and munificent Space Brothers who are looked upon as the rescuers of us lowly earth-dwellers. What about the stupid hollow earth beliefs? The list of kooks, oddities and eccentrics just goes on and on. Of course, once you’ve rejected the truth, you are open to believe anything that comes along in connection with human origins. “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,” 2 Timothy 4:3.
My pet kooky idea on human origins is the fantastical brainstorm that we humans are the end result of this incredible interbreeding program, where interfering aliens did some trialing on lower creatures. In some adaptations we are a fusion between primates and Martians. In other tales, we’ve been hereditarily fabricated, by these visitors from Jupiter who took a little piece of themselves and sewed it together with some toe-jam from some earthy chimpanzee. Why would they ever want to do such a thing, is just beyond me.
The thing that enthralls me about this is how these kooks always want to combine their insane scheme with the account of Creation from the Bible, integrating it with their pseudo-science. The kooky writers of these volumes always categorically state that they alone, at the end of the day, found the midpoint between creationism and evolution, or if you’d like, the halfway point between religion and science. They do this because they know that evolution doesn’t provide any real answers. So, they think up these yarns hoping against hope to provide a more sagacious, more toothsome way to explain the cosmos, the earth and how it is that man has arrived to dominate the scene on planet earth. Of course, by their doing this they make themselves preachers of anti-Darwinian notions.
I guess this one guy must have watched a movie or two on the SyFy Channel, but there’s this man, David Barclay, who believes that massive-brained and brilliantly-gifted dinosaurs actually produced humans, and played with us as if we were their house-pets. Can you believe that? Oh, I know that there are those out there that do. For goodness’ sake, what stupid, silly and dim-witted discharge won’t they come up with next?
“The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good,” Psalm 14:1.
“Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools,” Romans 1:22.
