And..?

In an uncharacteristic article that makes today’s DpSU, Brian Thomas of the ICR appears to faithfully report on a study, and then makes no explicit Creationist claim about it at all! Is he ill, or are we to expect flying bacon at any moment?

He does say, however, that “God made humans in His image—a image that includes the capacity for reason”, the study having been about the capacity for reason in preverbal (not yet talking) infants, but he doesn’t go any further, merely using it as a set up for the traditional Biblical quote, which is here buried in the footnotes:

God appeals to mankind’s reasoning in Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

An odd quote, it looks to me to be more of a threat than an offer for reason, continuing:

19If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

What say ye?

In other news, what’s the bets we see a DpSU sometime in the future based on this? I wouldn’t be surprised, considering that Mr Thomas has covered this kind of thing before…
