If you need a few laughs today, you should definitely check out this website. It purports to explain how refirgerators work!
The compressor compresses the refrigerant gas. This raises the refrigerant’s pressure and temperature (orange), so the heat-exchanging coils outside the refrigerator allow the refrigerant to dissipate the heat of pressurization.
As it cools, the refrigerant condenses into liquid form (purple) and flows through the expansion valve.
When it flows through the expansion valve, the liquid refrigerant is allowed to move from a high-pressure zone to a low-pressure zone, so it expands and evaporates (light blue). In evaporating, it absorbs heat, making it cold.
The coils inside the refrigerator allow the refrigerant to absorb heat, making the inside of the refrigerator cold. The cycle then repeats.
Ridiculous. Everyone knows that appliances work because God allows them to work. The article even admits it, winking at the audience and letting them know it’s all a joke instead of some whacked-out moonbat insanity, by stating at a different point,
The refrigerator is one of those miracles of modern living that totally changes life. Prior to refrigeration, the only way to preserve meat was to salt it, and iced beverages in the summer were a real luxury.
That’s exactly right. Refrigerators, like all appliances, are miracles. Their functioning and mechanics are a matter of divinely-inspired guesswork. Scientists and other know-it-all treefrog types can bluster and pretend to understand the processes involved, but the bottom line is, they’re miraculous. Only God can understand such a thing.
Don’t believe me? Go look up the word “miracle.”
A miracle is defined by Merriam-Webster (1997) as “an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.”
Though the term “miracle” can often be heard from Christians and non-Christians alike, the entire Bible only contains one genuine reference to “miracle” and that was a quote of a non-believer (the Pharaoh) in Exodus 7:9 (RSV): “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Prove yourselves by working a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.'”
Under Christianity and Judaism, God is truth and a miracle is nothing more than a “sign” of the truth. “Miracle” is the non-believer’s term for what believers properly describe as a “sign”, a term that does appear repeatedly in the Bible.
A purely scientific definition of a miracle is this: a net decrease in entropy. It follows from this definition that the greatest miracle would be the conversion of decaying matter to human life, as in the Resurrection.
There you have it. Your refrigerator is a miracle. God makes our modern appliances work in order to direct us to His truth. But, blinded as we are by Helioleftism, Darwinism, and the repairman industry, most of us refuse to turn our wills over to His direction. As such, He must periodically cause our appliances to fail, in order to test our faith. We are weighed in the balance, and sadly, all too often we are found lacking.
Now I’m getting down. Anyway, you should read that article. It’s a hilarious example of a conservative pretending to be an idiot moonbat trying to explain how things work that he can never hope to understand. I can’t stop cracking up every time I read it!
