This is why I hate the NFL

During the Cowboys game on Thanksgiving, a cheerleader got bowled over by a player on his way out-of-bounds. She popped up with a surprised look and a smile on her face, then enjoyed a small bit of fame from the moment. Later she took to Twitter and said these things:

Not hurtin’ today like some of y’all thought I would be! Our TE isn’t as tough as he looks… That or I’m WAY tougher than I look. ;)

I’m not the best at Jason Whitten trust falls. ;)

I see absolutely nothing wrong with any of this. She pretty much nailed how to ‘handle’ the situation: with humility, grace, and humor. Great. Let’s move on, right? Nope:

CNBC’s Darren Rovell reported that Kellerman was forced to delete her Twitter account after posting two messages on Friday morning about the incident.

That’s right. The Dallas Cowboys told this cheerleader to shut the hell up. If she isn’t participating on some shitty show on CMT, then she just shouldn’t be heard at all, I guess? It’s ridiculous. This shit is why I hate the NFL. It’s such a nancy-soccer league at this point that I would think they should be psyched that their players – and cheerleaders – aren’t taking dives. I’m just surprised a ref didn’t throw a flag for roughing the passer when Kellerman stopped cheering for those few seconds.

Did you know evolution leads to autocracies?

Yes, that’s right. The more states improve their school systems, the more scientists become effective at conveying their fields, the more the facts of evolution are known, the more and more we will head to an autocracy. At least that’s what crazy ol’ Rev. Dallas E. Henry thinks.

Secular humanists cling to the theory of evolution as truth. If mankind is nothing more than a highly adapted animal with this life being all there is, then there is no higher moral law with which to concern ourselves. With only human laws, people will risk the odds in getting caught to engage in abhorrent behavior. If this life is all there is, people can do whatever they feel like and the only authority they have to answer to is other people. If enough people live by this philosophy, either anarchy or an autocracy (government by a single individual ruler) will be the result.

So in other words, if a nation becomes too secular it will fall into utter chaos. Or it will fall in line under the strict control of a single individual. Yes, that’s right. Rev. Dallas Cowboys believes that the more people come to understand science, the more government will become one particular way. Or the more it will become exactly the opposite way. Whatever. Let’s not parse words. It’s just important that we all realize that evilution will lead to something bad, even if Rev. Cowboys is incapable of putting forth a coherent argument toward that point.

Oh, and it isn’t just evolution. It’s all of science.

Paul wrote to the Romans, “although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God…” Secular Humanists and atheists rely totally on science to explain everything. In reality, natural law has become their God. Natural law is a description of what has been observed to happen when certain conditions occur i.e. the law of gravity states that if something falls from the sky it will eventually hit the ground. Anything contrary to that defies natural law and therefore cannot be true. Science is anti – God; it is a gift from God. But when man’s knowledge begins to take precedence over God’s eternal power, “they became futile in their thoughts and their foolish hearts were darkened.” These people refuse to allow room for anything supernatural to exist. If it cannot be explained logically, it can’t be true.

Carl Sagan put it best when he said, “You can’t break the laws of Nature; there are no penalties for doing so. The real world…is merely so arranged that transgressions can’t happen.” It does not matter if Rev. Cowboys thinks something contrary to gravity or the speed of light can occur through the magic of his particular god. I return to Sagan here, “The Universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.” And that’s exactly what Rev. Cowboys is espousing – his ambition. Sure, he has it all gussied in this whole god-guise. But it’s still his ambition, likely instilled in him since birth, or perhaps through some personal experience which he incorrectly attributed to the predominant god of his culture. His ambitions and anti-science spewing vitriol will always pale, however, in comparison to the work of scientists, just as the ugliness of his horribly evil teachings based upon his horribly ugly god contrasts so starkly with the beauty that is revealed through science.
