#1497: Billy Crone


Billy Crone is the pastor of Get A Life Ministries (though we’ll refrain from making the obvious silly comments) and a serious fundie. Crone is a young earth creationist who believes, as expected, that dinosaurs and man coexisted on Earth some 6,000 years ago. Apart from that, he believes in UFOs, that secular music is dangerous and that the rapture is coming. The usual stuff.

Crone is known for his tendency to shout throughout his sermons, apparently unaware that volume is a poor substitute for evidence (though, of course, his audience may be under precisely that misconception). But then, Crone’s got little else, except some serious quote-mining and Bible verses that are magnificently irrelevant to the scientific topics he is denying (no, he doesn’t really have much of a clue about evolution), as well as some standard creationist talking points, such as the idea that human population growth shows that the Earth is young or that the Earth’s magnetic field disproves an old Earth (one gets the distinct feeling that he has no idea what he is talking about), or flat out denying that the geological column exists or that any type of dating method reveals anything but Satanic lies.

Diagnosis: Zealous fundie nutter. Probably pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

  3. I don't have enough faith to believe that everything we see was made out of nothing, and if you subscribe to the "Big Bang Theory," I believe that when God said "Let there be light," BANG it happened. Briana Pobiner, an anthropologist and educator at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., who specializes in the study of human origins said this, "Darwin didn't know anything about genetics, Pobiner said. "He observed the pattern of evolution, but he didn’t really know about the mechanism." You can go ahead and mock God, but in the end your "Willful Ignorance" will send you straight to Hell. A place created for satan and his bunch. Not created for man's souls.
