The most relevant Chick tract to this newsgroup is "Big Daddy?", an
incredibly obnoxious young earth creationist comic which repeats the
standard anti-evolutionary arguments and concludes with the observation
that Jesus is the strong nuclear force:
"I have a question for you sir! -- What is the binding force of the
atom? -- We *know* that the electrons of the atom whirl around the
nucleus billions of times every millionth of a second. Also that
the nucleus of the atom consists of particles called neutrons and
protons. -- The neutrons have no electrical charge and are therefore
neutral -- BUT -- the protons have positive charges. One law of
electricity is that -- *LIKE CHARGES REPEL EACH OTHER!* Being that
all of the protons in the nucleus are positively charged -- they
should repel each other and scatter into space.
"WHAT HOLDS THEM TOGETHER?"
(very tiny letters): "I don't know!"
"I'm sorry sir, but I can't hear you."
"I said-- I don't know, you tell me!"
"Sir, may I quote from the Bible?"
"YES, YES, YES!!"
"It says that Christ, the creator, 'is before all things, and
_by him all things consist_ (are held together).' Col. 1:17
-- Also it says, 'All things were made by him (Christ); and
without him was not anything made that was made.' John 1:3"
