Young Jessa Duggar, who is just about ready now to maximize her breeding for the furtherance of Christ’s dominion on Earth, has become dumber from visiting Ken Ham’s Creation Museum — and has decided to inflict her ignorance on all of us.

If there really was a worldwide flood (as the Bible speaks of), what would the evidence be? Billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth. And that’s exactly what we find. Billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth. An Evolutionist and a Creationist will look at the same thing, but come to different conclusions because of their different starting points.

By ‘different starting points,’ Jessa means that she began with a Bronze Age fairy tale and has selected errant or misleading data points to reinforce it in her mind. Her “proof” here is absolute nonsense: floods produce mixed and mashed detritus, as anyone who has ever seen one knows perfectly well. They do not produce perfectly-segmented, globally-uniform layers of sediment. As the lady in the insurance commercial says, that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works. 

I’ve never really understood why the so-called ‘liberal media’ gives a pass to the Duggar family’s sick ideology. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are members of the Quiverfull movement, an overtly-political form of Dominionist Christianity which sees the human uterus as the ultimate voter registration drive. Underneath all the warm, fuzzy family bonding, the purpose of their extreme patriarchy is to outnumber the less-faithful, less-Christian Americans who espouse ‘liberal’ ideas — like, say, empirical science, or a minimum wage — with a horde of idiots tutored in imaginary science and history.

Like, say, Jessa’s poor understanding of Nazi ideology:

I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today…very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights–their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed ‘less than human.’ Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are ‘more evolved’ and others ‘less evolved.’ A denying that our Creator–GOD–made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are ‘not fit to live.

Jessa doesn’t mention homosexuals for some reason, even though thousands of them died in the Holocaust. Maybe that’s because her family doesn’t accept ‘alternative lifestyles’ as genetically-predisposed behaviors. In fact, they are intimately linked to a hate group which constantly dehumanizes LGBT Americans in the name of their god. And as we all know, genocide excused in the name of a god is completely different than genocide excused with pseudoscience.

There’s actually nothing about evolution or biology or genetics that excuses racism. Plenty of people have developed unscientific racial theories since Darwin first noticed that species seem to have evolved over time, but none of those studies have passed the rigors of peer review and reproducibility. Whereas evolution itself is one of the most proven theories in science, with tens of millions of fossils collected from those uniform layers that were laid down by time and geology instead of a global flood, there is exactly zero evidence that skin color or ethnic difference determines intelligence or confers special human potential on anyone.

Known by the corrupt term ‘social Darwinism,’ this pseudoscience was not Darwin’s idea, nor was it initially identified with the Nazi Party. Indeed, the first genocide of the 20th Century took place in Africa, not Europe, under Kaiser Wilhelm’s imperial rule, and it too was inspired by the abuses of the Belgian Congo a generation beforehand.

What unites these early genocides is that they were explicitly racial, and that perfectly Christian people thought they were fulfilling their god’s intentions. When the lessons that Germans learned by slaughtering Namibian tribes were later applied to Polish Catholics, it was because they convinced themselves that their Protestant god wanted them to. Maybe Jessa would say this wasn’t ‘correct’ Christianity, but what does she think when she reads about the genocide of the Canaanites? Does she think they must have deserved it, and that her god approves of ethnic cleansing as long as the victims are ‘sinners’?

The Duggars have added eighteen other people to the world, and if they have their way each of those kids will be a ‘success story’ like Jessa.

  • OooShiny

    She visits the Creation Museum instead of the Smithsonian to explore science?

    Just because it’s legal to intellectually handicap your children, that doesn’t make it right.

  • ORAXX

    I can’t imagine a scenario where a divine being, capable of willing the universe into existence, would require human help with anything. Religious fanatics who would set themselves up as masters of us all, sicken me. There is no horror that cannot be, and hasn’t been, justified in the name of god, religion, and morality.

  • AltheaLRosa

    I’m already not a fan of the Duggars or the life they live. Every time I see news of them, I become even more against them. I just feel so bad for those kids. Their views are going to be so skewed as they grow up.

    • NATHAN AMAL

      and they are neglected-no woman has time for 19 kids…that loose vagina makes me crine

      • Versinel

        I don’t really see it as either parent having enough time more than both parents just thinking the more kids they have, the more help they will have with the younger kids. Kids should not be raising kids.

    • freakycatlady

      I don’t understand these people at all. It seems like there is a breeding hobby going on and people are really getting into the idea that the more kids you have, somehow, you win from it. I shake my head at the thought of what all of these kids will grow up thinking and then pass to their own kids once their breeding festivities start.

  • Dodie Peterson

    Calling her intellectually handicapped just because you don’t happen to agree with her religious philosophy is ridiculous, OooShiny. There are millions of people worldwide who believe in some sort of higher being who created the world. That belief does not make them stupid.

    • NATHAN AMAL

      Wrong. She IS intellectually idiotic-the Creation Museum is a joke per everyone except a few thousand people. Its ok to believe in a higher being (its silly to just mindlessly accept what your parents brainwash you with in the western wolrd nowadays, but if you need the crutch…), but to believe the world is only thosuands of years old-thats insane and imbecilic

    • SandyLee

      I’m not a fan of the Duggars, but I respect their right to follow their beliefs. We have much bigger problems in this world to be worried about than non-violent Christians. We may see their beliefs as skewed, but at least they aren’t going around beheading people in the name of their Higher Power.

  • NATHAN AMAL

    I shudder to think that her vagina will soon be spouting out cockroaches like her mother. Vaginas are NOT clown cars, people!!

  • nobodyforpresident

    Another home schooled genius.

  • Ratcraft

    Maybe she should behead non believers, then she gets a pass!

  • C. Adkins

    – I like her.

  • Cuppycake

    I think people should be able to believe in whatever they want to believe in without getting ridiculed. It is true that she doesn’t seem all that bright, but I honestly do not think it is right to pick on her like this.

  • Stevojax

    If there was a world wide flood that covered all land, then where did the water go?

  • justphilip

    Not that her intellectual hollowness escapes me but describing her as ‘one of the 19 zealots inflicted on America by her Parents’ is perhaps going a bit too far.
    That said, by doing stories on her ignorance, the author is just helping spread her reach. Which is to say, just ignore her ignorance.

  • And we’re seriously listening to one of 19 clowns to emerge from the clown car of her mother’s vagina… why?

  • tpartynitwit

    Does Papa Feel Robertson want Biblical sex with Jessa?

  • SelenaJ25

    Everyone has different beliefs and everyone will raise their children differently. I do think that every person should have the opportunity to see the religious and the scientific side of evolution, and then be able to make their own conclusions as to what happened because when it comes down to it, we will truly never know how this place was created and why people do what they do.
