#918: Ray Martinez

Ray Martinez is a notorious internet kook who describes himself as an “Old Earth Young Biosphere Protestant Evangelical Paulinist,” and has been known to infest discussions e.g. at and various creationist webpages. He is also an erstwhile Conservapedia editor, but apparently ran into some problems with the other editors there.

Martinez main things are the idea that the Bible is innerrant, that the Great Pyramid is a physical representation of the Bible, and that Atlantis exists in the Atlantic Ocean since its existence is proven by the fact that eels return to the Atlantic to spawn. To critics of his views on evolution, his common response is that he is on the verge of publishing a paper that will demolish Darwinism. The verge has lasted for the main part of a decade by now, but at least it will, according to Martnez, answer all their doubts.

Since Martinez’s can sometimes come across as dubiously coherent somewhat hard to understand, a superb Ray Martinez Dictionary has been made available for our benefit.

Diagnosis: Internet kook. Probably harmless.

  1. Aww. You overlooked what I consider his most endearing feature. He also calls himself a "species immutablist", which means that he rejects even the "micro-evolution" that most other creationists are forced to admit happen. As a result, he spends almost as much time attacking other creationists as "evolutionists" as he does those who actually support modern evolutionary theory.

    In other words, Ray M. has a really good thing going. Having decided that he is the only True Christian™ out there, he doesn't have to share the spotlight with anyone.
