Things you learn…

One of my favorite Jack Chick tracts. (For those of you not familiar with these, they’re… shall we say… very Christian little pamphlets that evangelists hand out on street corners. This one in particular is about evolution, and why it’s obviously incorrect and against all religious law)

According to this tract, quantum chromodynamics is a lie, gluons do not exist, and strongly interacting particles are held together by the direct force of divine intervention. (Which is, apparently, somehow distinguishable from gluons. Maybe it has different scattering properties or something.)

That’s going to be a very busy personal divinity. There are a lot of baryons in this universe.

I think I’m going to have to start using the phrase “As busy as the Holy Ghost during baryogenesis.”

  1. Shouldn’t you be able to calculate the cross-section of divine intervention?

  2. >>> Which is, apparently, somehow distinguishable from gluons. <<<
    That’s exactly what I was thinking as I was reading this. 🙂
    >>> “As busy as the Holy Ghost during baryogenesis.” <<<
    Bwahahaha! I like it!

  3. I thought that was what string theorists did…?

  4. I’m conjecturing based on this that SU(3) color symmetry actually rotates the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost into one another.

  5. YOU are the probelm!
    People like you are the reason God doesn’t come around anymore! He is always busy working!
    The more Scientists continue to examine reality,the more work the King of Kings (Elvis) has to do. God slaves over hot Baryons all day and no longer has time to heal the sick or burn any bushes.
    THAT is the real reason so many Good Christians&trade are trying to get science out of the schools – they want to give Him some time off!! Can’t the Lord of all Creation have a holiday?!? Why won’t you stop your selfish ways and just not THINK for a minute!

    Preach it brother! Keep the Holy Day Holy for our LORD!
