The vast majority of scientists are normal. A small minority of scientists are full of shit. They're Christians and they disgrace their profession.
This fake scientist for Jeebus was asked a good question and he couldn't answer it. All he could do was invoke his religious brainwashing.
Shermer followed up, asking Giberson, then why believe in God at all?
"It makes the world so much more interesting," Giberson said. "The mystery of God's existence is a more satisfying mystery than the mystery of how can all this arise out of a particle."
But what is your evidence, Shermer said, for belief in God?
"I was raised believing in God, so for me, the onus would be on someone to stop me from believing," Giberson said, adding that "there is a certain momentum that is already there."
A universe with a magical being is more interesting than reality? A real scientist would never say that.
The asshole for Jeebus said "He is sympathetic toward the motivations of creationists and scientists alike, though he is fed up with much of intelligent design as well as hard-core atheists."
He's sympathetic toward the motivations of creationist idiots who want to throw out all of science and who want to destroy science education to defend their death cult.
Fed up with much of magical intelligent design creationism? Does this fake scientist think some magic is OK?
Not believing in bullshit is hard-core? Not being a stupid asshole for Jeebus is hard-core?
These are the kind of idiots who say a magic god fairy and evolutionary biology can co-exist, but they never explain what their fairy is good for. If it didn't have anything to do with the development of life, then where do they stick their god of the gaps? What other branch of science do they pollute with supernatural magic?
The fake scientist is Karl W. Giberson, a physics professor at Eastern Nazarene College in Massachusetts. From their website: "Bridging the gap between the best in education and the best in the Christian Faith." That figures. This idiot for Jeebus couldn't get a job at a real university but a Bible Thumping college hired him.
