Poor C. David Parsons.
After "much fasting, prayer, and seeking wisdom from God" he's pissed away what one imagines was a serious chunk of his kids' inheritance vanity publishing creationist text books.
Despite God's guidance and grace, the world of science has been completely unmoved by this publishing sensation. The Intelligent Design Creationists have just ignored him. Presumably they think he's batshit crazy too.
Parsons has acheived some noteriety, by spamming dozens of blogs and newgroups in a pitiful cry for publicity. He's even visited Ptet. He claims:
The Quest for Right... represents the ultimate marriage between an in-depth knowledge of biblical phenomena and natural and physical sciences.O RLY? James Moore of No Answers In Genesis actually bought a copy:
"A revealing aspect of Quest for Right is that it contains not one reference. It is as though [the author]... sat at the computer and made it up as he went along."Hallelujah!
All this got me thinking. There are many millionaires who credit God's inspiration and support for their success... But where are the folks who've blown everything in crazy schemes - like "The Quest For Right" - which come to them in religious visions and amount to shit? Does God never give bad advice? Or is it more likely, do you think, that there's dozens of losers for every winner in the lottery of God's grace, and we just count the hits and forget the misses?
But hey. Let's not fret too much for Mr Parsons. Like Job, he knows God's fucking him over is just a test of his faith.
