Joe the Plumber: Them Fancy Scienticians Is The REAL Idiots!

Not sure how the heck I missed this gem. The other day, our ole buddy Joe the Plumber gave an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, discussing the life changing event that led him to accepting Jesus Christ as his savoir. Before I proceed, let me just say that, as a religious person myself, I understand that different people find all kinds of reasons to become religious. Unfortunately, Mr. The Plumber here, provides one of the most vapid, inane and idiotic rationales I've ever, EVER witnessed:


For those of you that can't watch videos from work or whatever, Joe says that as a child, his youth pastor invited him to a restaurant and told him to "bring his science book" (which, according to the interviewer, was a subject Joe allegedly "loves"). The pastor told Joe to place the book side by side with a Bible, and asked him what the science book's revision number was (7, in this case), then asked him what the revision number was on the Bible (no revisions at all). In other words, science makes lots of mistakes, hence the need for multiple revisions. The Bible, alternatively, is and has always been correct about everything and thus has no need for revisions.

Seriously. That's his argument.

It was from that moment that Joe seemed to have suddenly realized that science was the work of the Devil, and presumably burned every book in his house that didn't contain any words like "thou" and "smite".

Now, Joe's running in a highly democratic district in Ohio, so he will in all likeliness get curb stomped by his opponent, Democrat, Marcy Kaptur. But we shouldn't forget this very inconvenient fact: there are hundreds of Republican in congress who are just as dimwitted as Joe is. And that is an utterly terrifying thing to acknowledge.

  1. It's fascinating to me just how often the principle advantage of scientific method is mistaken for some kind of failure.

  2. Thanks for this post. I knew a group of plumbers in Calgary who contested this fact. Apparently their training curriculum is very different from ours.
