"...I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me..." [Deuteronomy 5:8-10]

While randomly surfing, I wondered what creationists had to say about trilobites.
Here's Dr. Kurt Wise, professor of science and theology at Southern Theological Seminary, at AnswersInGenesis (my emphasis):
"Such a worldwide pattern of fossil layers suggests that a global catastrophe, such as the Bible describes, once struck the world. What if, when the “fountains of the great deep were broken up” (Genesis 7:11), the spreading waters surprised the trilobites living on the ocean bottom? As the water became muddy, trilobites scurried about in terror, leaving their tracks behind them. Then as a layer of mud covered their tracks, they climbed through the mud and left tracks on the next layer—repeating this process until they finally succumbed in exhaustion and were themselves buried and preserved."
If you listen carefully, you can still hear Dr. Wise fapping furiously with delight at the thought of God purposefully killing millions of terrified animals. Praise Jebus! ...

Internet Christians commonly claim that without "God" there is no morality.
OgreMkV demolishes this nonsense beautifully:
If God commanded people to start eating babies, what would you do?
There are three possible answers:
1) "No, it would still be immoral." That one's easy, and the best answer, and of course it demolishes the idea that God dictates what is moral.
2) "God would never do that, because God is moral." In order for this statement to have any meaning, morality must exist independent of God -- otherwise we could not decide whether God would do a particular thing based on whether or not that thing was moral, because that would be synonymous to asking ourselves whether God would do a particular thing based on whether God would do a particular thing.
3) "Knives out and start the rotesserie!" This, and only this, preserves the idea that morality comes from God, and only from God.
POTW for sure...
