I read something like this:
At PragerU, we have released about 400 videos on virtually every subject outside of the natural sciences and math. Along with 2 billion views, the videos have gotten tens of thousands of comments. So we have a pretty good handle on what people most love and most hate. For example, any video defending America or Israel inevitably receives many negative responses. But no videos elicit the amount of contempt and mockery that videos defending religion, explaining the Bible, or arguing for God do.
Why is that?
There is a good reason. The Bible and the Left (not liberalism, leftism) are as opposed as any two worldviews can be. While there are people who claim to hold both a Bible-based worldview and left-wing views, these people are few in number. Moreover, what they do is take left-wing positions and wrap them in a few Bible verses. But on virtually every important value in life, the Left and the Bible are diametrically opposed. […]
• The biblical view is that nature was created for man. The left-wing view is that man is just another part of nature.
The biblical view holds that wisdom begins with acknowledging God. The secular view is that God is unnecessary for wisdom, and the left-wing view is that God is destructive to wisdom. But if you want to know which view is more accurate, look at the most godless and Bible-less institution in our society: the universities. They are, without competition, the most foolish institutions in our society.
So, they wonder why they are mocked?
1. That nature (and the universe) is created for the benefit for our species flies in the face of modern science. Evolution is directionless and our planet is just one of billions orbiting one of billions of stars in one of billions of galaxies. Yes, sophisticated believers might argue that the laws of nature would make it likely that sentient beings would evolve somewhere but that is hardly a biblical world view.
2. Wisdom: actually, it might begin by casting off ancient superstitions.
Now, yes, there is quite a bit of nonsense put out my the modern academic academy. But the science is what enables me to, say, type this on a computer and send it out via a network. The idea that we ought to be somehow ruled by selected passages of a collection of ancient books is madness.
And so…as disgusted as I get with the regressive left…this is also out there.

Old man: yes, I did walk to school; 1.6 miles each way.
But that was something I GOT to do..not something I had to do. I feel bad for kids who don’t get to do this.
