The Biblical Insight From a Writer at The New Yorker That Left Glenn Beck Stunned
Malcolm Gladwell, a staff writer at the New Yorker the author of David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, appeared on “The Glenn Beck Program” Monday to discuss the biblical story after which his book was named, and the profound impact it has on us today.

The author began with a discussion of how “disadvantages are often advantageous.”

Like the underdog David, Gladwell said an abnormally high percentage of wildly successful people struggled with ADD or dyslexia early in life, and many credit that disadvantage with spurring them to think and learn differently.

“But by the end of the book what I realized that what I really wanted to talk about was faith,” Gladwell told Beck, “the weapons of the spirit.”

Beck seemed stunned, and couldn’t believe that Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker, but Gladwell only laughed and said he would not have spoken the same way three years ago.

Want to piss off a libtard? Tell him the truth.

"Within the period of human history we do not know of a single instance of the transformation of one species into another one. It may be claimed that the theory of descent is lacking, therefore, in the most essential feature that it needs to place the theory on a scientific basis, this must be admitted."

(Dr. T.H Morgan)

"The facts of paleontology seem to support creation and the flood rather than evolution. For instance, all the major groups of invertebrates appear "suddenly" in the first fossil ferrous strata (Cambrian) of the earth with their distinct specializations indicating that they were all created almost at the same time."

(Professor Enoch, University of Madras)

"It remains true, as every paleontologist knows, that most new species, genera, and families, and that nearly all categories above the level of families, appear in the record suddenly and are not led up to by known, gradual completely continuous transitional sequences." (Dr. George Gaylord Simpson of Harvard)

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."

(Charles Darwin, "The Origin of Species")
