If Barack Obama is, as some now say, the imperial President, he may want to be on the lookout for a liberal-leaning court jester. Who better than the late night master of malediction, Bill Maher?
Not satisfied just to blaspheme God, Maher decided on a recent show to insult 60 million Americans for believing in the Bible, and specifically for their belief in the story of Noah’s Ark. In a video provided by The Blaze, Maher is seen surrounded by his usual sycophants, all adoringly beaming at their guru of garbage.
Maher got big laughs by poking fun at the notion that all the animals of the earth were indigenous to a five-mile area around the ark. In fact, the Bible teaches no such thing. It teaches that the animals came to Noah. God brought animals from around the earth to the ark, and apparently He sent some of them on their way months or years earlier.
Maher thought it was sporting to call God a “psychotic mass murderer” because He decided to destroy all of the ancients in a flood. Maher said He destroyed both the good and the bad, but that isn’t what the record says. According to the Bible, He destroyed them all because there were no good men among them.
Maher’s math leaves much to be desired. If God is nonexistent, the ark is a child’s story, and the flood is a myth, then exactly how many people did God kill? Yes, you can do this math with only a fourth grade education. The answer is zero. If no one was killed at all, why is Maher maligning a mythical killer? Could it be that Maher may have a doubt?
In fact, if Bill has a doubt, who would he confess it to? Would he look up the nearest scientist and let it be known that he is slipping toward — belief?
Before we charge God with being a killer, let’s look closer to home. Since 1973 more than 56 million babies have met with death at the hands of people full of pride about scientific discoveries, but way too dumb, or evil, to answer the question of when life begins in the womb.
The entire population of the earth in Noah’s time was less than 7 million. It seems we are ahead of God in killings by 49 million in America alone, and 143 million worldwide. What’s our excuse except that we don’t want them (the precious babies) around to clutter up our personal goals and dreams? Unlike the reprobates of old, our victims are perfectly innocent.
Maher drew the biggest laugh of the evening when he said that unlike the religious people, scientists were not satisfied merely to ask, “Where does the sun go at night?” The Bible was not written to answer such a silly question. God gave men enough savvy to find that out for themselves.
The question the Bible answers is: “Where the soul of man go after death?”
Would you trust Bill Maher to answer that question for you?
Maher flatters himself with an inflated view of his own intelligence, while surrounding himself with a gaggle of giggling goofballs. I pray he doesn’t fall afoul of Christ’s proclamation, found in Luke’s gospel:
“Woe unto you that laugh now! For ye shall mourn and weep.” (Luke 6: 25)
Maher needs to internalize a telling observation by David:
“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” (Psalm 14: 1)
