Henry M. Morris On Videotape


I have in my library the book The Revelation Record: A Scientific and Devotional Commentary on the Prophetic Book of the End of Times[i] by Henry M. Morris – a commentary on the final book of the bible and a sort of bookend companion piece to his similarly named commentary on Genesis.  And it is a howler, ridiculousness on nearly every page, far too many to share them all...

In his commentary on Revelation 20:12 Morris wrote this wonderful bit of malarkey:  “God has books in heaven, so that no deed or word of any man or woman who ever lived has been lost.  These books may be in the form of scrolls as used in John’s day; or bound pages as in our day, or some other type of book about which we know nothing.  Possibly they will consist of something analogous to modern videotapes.  If man can use electronics to preserve sights and sounds, there is no question that God, who created all forms of electromagnetic energy in the first place, can certainly do it, and far more efficiently at that.”[ii]

Sounds as if God’s a fan of Radiohead’s song, Videotape.

When I'm at the pearly gates
This will be on my videotape, my videotape
Mephistopheles is just beneath
And he's reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
And I have it all here in red, blue, green
In red, blue, green
