Fallacy Over Fact: The Creationist Museum and Dominionist Fundamentalism

It’s truly an embarrassment to my country. Anyone who lives in a country, like Norway for example, who believes largely that religion is pretty much a farce, has to sympathize with me on this one.

Near Petersburg, Kentucky lies the 70,000 square foot Creationist Museum. A building dedicated to preserving the ridiculous notion the Earth is 6,000 years old. Frightening, but it’s doing quite well. Over 1.3 million suckers have visited the museum since its opening four years ago.

Jesus Christ. I can only attribute the museum’s success to the rise of the seven mountains prophecy . It states Seven Mountains dominionism seeks to place Christians in control over the seven forces that shape and control our culture: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion. The reason for this, as Lance Wallnau, the leading advocate for Seven Mountains theology, explained is that Jesus “doesn’t come back until He’s accomplished the dominion of nations.” And the way “dominion of nations” is accomplished is by having Christians gain control of these “seven mountains” in order to install a “virtual theocracy” overseen by “true apostles” who will fight Satan and his Antichrist agenda

These psychotic zealots are working their way into the mainstream, not to be overshadowed by Willard Romney’s White Horse Prophecy

This is the assertion that Mormons expect the United States to eventually become a theocracy dominated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Joseph Smith prophesied this back in the mid nineteenth century.

Can’t we evolve a little and stop with the fantastical nonsense that is religion mixed with politics? Frankly, the whole thing frightens me to no end. Why must a president believe in the supernatural? I’m a little sick of this fallacious way of thinking dominating the political dialogue. Aren’t you?

    Surely you know that religion IS politics.
