I-35 Was Created By God?
You can't make this crap up: Robertson and his Holy Rollers believe that Interstate and Isaiah are the same. And that in our modern North-South highway numbering system (multiples of five, anyone?), the number 35 refers to chapter 35 of the book of Isaiah.
Hey, the virgin in the taco people got nothin' on Pat & Company.
My favorite part: the "back-slidden youth pastor" (no longer gay) crap, complete with "Fire!"
How do these "Purity Siege" types explain the "forked" splits of I-35 at Hillsboro and Denton, TX, and at Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN?
So, where did these freaks get their I-35 crap?
1The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Obviously, these people have no idea how pig ignorant they are. One of them noticed that I-35 is a highway, and Isaiah 35 has the multi-translated word highway in it: Et voilà! An idiotic idea is born.
By the way, the word highway first appeared in 1649 CE.
Pssst! The average speed clocked in speeding violations on I-35 near Georgetown, TX, is 83 mph.
Hm. There is no Isaiah 83. The last chapter is 66.
Check this out:
17They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
This obviously means that God will fry you if you eat pork BBQ on Route 66.
Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19-- And she made him (Samson) sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head.
