Kevin Miller gets really Expelled

Kevin Miller was the real script writer for the execrable creationist propaganda film "Expelled" (the link actually goes to "Expelled Exposed"). He has had his sorry lying (see "Expelled Exposed") ass fired from a Christian "university" called Trinity Western University. They have a "Statement of Faith" (Link to a PDF) that all faculty must sign.

Here is the "money quote,"
10 God's gospel requires a response that has eternal consequences.

We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.

All of us that try to explain to creationists the reality of the universe have at one point or another been promised "eternal damnation in the fiery lakes of Hell!!!111!ELEVENSONE!!!! DIE YOU ANTI-CHRIST!!!!!1111 Bwahaahahhaahawahaahhah etc..." This is apparently what happens if you do evil godless things like invent new medical treatments, or improve crops, or anything that isn't the Trinity Western list such as telling the truth about science. The added ugly hate filled touch popular- in fact demanded- by this Christian university is, "eternal conscious punishment." The Trinity Western University Christians are aware that humans hideously tortured will lose consciousness. These Christians won't want anyone to miss a even moment of the eternal agony they envision in their self righteous wet-dreams.

This is of considerable historical interest, as I have discussed elsewhere. Charles Darwin's autobiography was not intended for publication. But following his death, his son Frank apparently was considering it. In one section regarding C. R. Darwin's religious beliefs, Darwin wrote, "I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished.

And this is a damnable doctrine.

Six months after her husband's death Mrs. Darwin annotated the passage above in her own handwriting. She wrote, "I should dislike the passage in brackets to be published (from "and have never since doubted" to "damnable doctrine" GH). It seems to me raw. Nothing can be said too severe upon the doctrine of everlasting punishment for disbelief, but very few now wd. call that 'Christianity,' "

In 1882, Mrs. Emma Darwin held, that "very few now wd. call that 'Christianity'." Too bad we still have sick sadists like the faculty, and ministration, and students of Trinity Western.

The "Statement" must be signed, but a minor option exists: you could check, "I agree with the above Statement of Faith and agree to support that position at all times before the students and friends of Trinity Western University. However, I wish to clarify my understanding of an article(s) on a separate, attached sheet."

When Kevin "shit stain" Miller tried to slightly distance himself from the evil sadistic bastards he associates with, They fired him.

So sorry Kevie, I must admit that I find this very amusing.
