Top 10 Reasons the Young-Earth Creationist Did Not Cross the Road to the “Other Side”

Inspired by Parchment and Pen‘s recent spate of Top 10 lists, I decided to create my own Top 10 reasons the young-earth creationist did not cross the road to the “other side.” Feel free to add your own to the list!

10. Bishop Ussher’s The Annals of the World never makes mention of God creating the other side before Sunday, 23 October 4004 BC.

9. The creation of an “other side” is just an inferior ancient Near Eastern myth.

8. A literal interpretation of Genesis does not support crossing to the other side.

7. He did not want to disturb what looked like human tracks crossing dinosaur tracks in the asphalt until representatives from ICR arrived to confirm the find.

6. Richard Dawkins and PZ Myers were on the other side.

5. Ben Stein’s money was on his side.

4. He did not want to be a monkey’s uncle.

3. He transferred from Calvin College before he could take one of Stephen Matheson‘s biology courses.

2. The street only has the appearance of an “other side.”

And (drum roll, please) …

1. Because an intelligent agency appeared to have designed the road, the other side did not warrant further scientific investigation.

  1. LOL … very nice Mike. Except for one small problem. On the seventh day God rested so I believe you should really have a top-6 rather than a top-10 … having 4 extra is clearly on the slippery slope to evolutionism.

  2. RBH

    And those slippery slopes can be killer — just ask any native of Minnesota along about February. 🙂

    Funny stuff!

  3. Thanks for the laugh! This issue can use a little levity now and then.

  4. Theories about “other-sidedness” only reduce the road to asphalt and concrete. Why even entertain such a godless construct?

  5. There is no evidence that anyone or anything ever moved to the other side. Organisms can be seen on both sides, but after several consecutive seconds of observation, none were seen to cross, and certainly none are found in the middle of the road. Therefore organisms are created ex nihilo on one side of the road or the other. Those who envision “crossing” are deceived but we love them.

    Also, I do occasionally award points in biology courses for sheer wit, although I don’t know what that has to do with crossing the road…

    Numbers 1 and 2 are my favorites, along with Gordon’s contribution. Thanks for the fun!


  6. The YEC heard someone suggest that our side of the road was modeled after the other side. The similarities we see between our side and the other side are actually a testimony to the fact that our side was here first: ours is the true record, and while the other side retains some similar features, the construction got modified by pagan engineers along the way.

  7. whoah this blog is wonderful i really like reading your articles. Keep up the great paintings! You realize, a lot of people are hunting round for this info, you could help them greatly.
