Sherri Shepherd: I Don’t Believe In Evolution, I Believe in the Literal Translation of the Bible.Author: Jon Martin | Thursday, September 23rd, 2010 |
On Wednesday’s episode of ‘The View‘, the panel discussed recent comments from The National Center For Atmospheric Research(NCAR). NCAR reported that Moses’s fabled parting of the Red Sea might have happened due to wind conditions. You can actually see a look of amusement in Barbara’s eyes as she glances over and see’s Sherri Shepherd angrily shaking her head about this discovery.
“This upsets you” Barbara says after concluding the story. “Yes it does” Sherri replies. Strange how facts have a way of bothering religious people. In many ways, it feels like American society is approaching a wall. There will be a day in the near future where the country will either have to embrace logic, real things, facts, and science… or turn into a theocracy.
After a commercial break, both Joy and Sherri were allowed to make closing statements. Sherri’s was unintellectual and filled with false arguments (because every religious argument is) but I have to say Joy let me down big time. Although she did mention Christopher Hitchens and his battle with cancer, she neglected to take either Sherri or Elizabeth to task for their stupid comments. If I was given a platform like Joy to discuss, what I think, are important beliefs, I wouldn’t just make some lame Sarah Palin joke. You’re on notice Ms. Behar!
This isn’t the first time the View panel has debated religion. Sherri Shepard became infamous for telling Barbara and Whoopi that she didn’t know if the earth was flat or round, she had never really thought of it. Oh that Sherri, so cunning against the seculars. Last year, Bill Maher stopped by to discuss Religulous, his documentary questioning religion. It turned into a depressing affair when Sherri told Maher that he should “talk to god”, to which he just looked at her and then the cheering audience in confusion.
I think that religion was needed in times when we couldn’t explain how things happened. Now that we know how things work, there are no more ways for myths like Moses’ crossing of the red sea to be created.. because it can’t happen, it would be in the news, then a scientist would find the explanation. The bible is second-hand information created in a time when most people couldn’t write their own name.
