National Character Cop
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of the Spiritual Interior Bill Gothard hailed a new study that discovered risky sex habits lead to death and disability.

"If people would harness their sexual drives, their creative energy would increase," said Secretary Gothard. "We could stop spending taxpayers' money to subsidize the National Endowment for the Arts."

Secretary Gothard also pointed out the absurdity of modern science. "God's Word has warned against the dangers of illicit sex for thousands of years. Rather than relying upon humanistic principles, scientists should attend my Basic Seminar to discover how Scripture offers precise truths about science."

Hey, Xer, would you consider adding to your list of censored words "universal" and "non-optional" ?
Respectfully submitted,

Billy G's disgusting lack of understanding of science or even the inability to have people around him who understand it is really a disturbing thing. As a Bio-Chemist in training it's almost revolting how little I learned from the 'Tute and how much I picked up with some simple reading outside the Bible and other "approved" sources.

Anonymous #2: Could you give specific examples of what you're referring to, please? Not trying to contradict you - goodness knows the wisdom booklets left great holes in the math arena - but my recollection of the science resources is that they were pretty interesting and, as far as I know, fairly accurate, if overly simplified at times. I probably wouldn't even know about my reticular activating system otherwise.

For a quick example I'll go with his "Your Body needs only fresh fruits and vegetables cause they are basic and that's what your blood is"

Blood "is" slightly basic.. 7.0-7.5 pH roughly with 7.0 pH being neutral. Most (haven't found one yet that's not) fruit is acidic, at least mildly so. (All my reference stuff is at school right now. Book I got most of my data from is the "CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics" in their Biochemistry Section under the label "Typical pH Values of Biological Material and Foods" if you want to go check it out at a local university.) Vegetables are close to the same range.

Also, all listed human fluids besides blood, (tears, sweat, urine, etc) are acidic. Especially your gastric juices which run between 1.5-2.5 depending upon how much hydrochloric acid your body has produced that day. Yeah, you read that right.. Your body produces Hydrochloric Acid, one of the most acidic acids commonly available, to break down the food you eat.

Eating a lot of "Basic" or "Alkaline" foods will cause: water, a salt of some kind (depends upon what makes the food alkaline, and possibly gas (again depending upon what you've eaten).

So, Cliff's Notes here... Most Fresh Food = pH<7.0 = Acidic. Alkaline = Basic = pH > 7.0. Most Human fluids = pH <7.0 Blood = Exception = pH ~7.0-7.5. === Once again the Gothard FUD machine grabs whatever "science" fits it's pre-conceived ideas and spouts it out as fact.

Another one would be their wonderous musical loving plants thing. Never heard of it again after the first year did you? Nope.. Like his many other hair-brained ideas, it silently passed on to die a quiet death when it was realized it wouldn't work.

I'll agree that Scripture offers basic precise truths (accuracy, weights, a few ideas on ocean currents etc) but not to the "extents" that G was willing to take it to for the sake of the next "Big Thing" that of course couldn't make it anywere else. Cause other institutions use something called "Peer Review" that is actually check out that something works before spewing it all over the place.

I'm sorry this was so long, but it's one of the many things that turned me off to G and his cult.

Silly Bio-Chemist in training, don’t you know by now that a confirming testimony trumps objective, independent peer review.

note to self: never, ever eat a cookie while reading this site. you will probably choke to death. thus receiving the just punishment prescribed in ancient jewish custom for those who mock the traditions of the pharisees
