While surfing the my favorite blogs this morning, via a post over at Dispatches from the Creation Wars, I discovered, Bryan Fischer: Defeating Darwin in four steps – so easy a caveman could do it.
After reading the post I am convinced it was, in fact, written by a cavemen. I’ve heard some ignorant drivel from the mouths of creationists in their misguided attempts to disprove evolution, but if there were a Nobel Prize for stupidity this guy would win, hands down. Not only is he ignorant and misguided, but his post is so pathetic in its own way it’s rather hilarious.
I would urge you to read the post, if just for shits and giggles. In addition to numerous quotes of scientific facts and theories that disprove evolution here are just a few highlights that made me laugh. Seriously, who needs drugs or booze to have a good time when there are troglodytes, like Fischer roaming the six thousand-year old earth, to offer boundless entertainment.
Here are a few of my favorite highlights.
When you see a turtle on a fence post, what’s the one thing you know? Somebody put him there. When you see a world hanging in space, what’s the one thing you know? Someone hung it there.
The turtle theory, that’s almost better than the peanut butter theory as proof of a creator.
it began when a ball of incredibly dense matter exploded and flung the universe into existence. Okay, fine. Now: where did that incredibly dense ball of matter come from?
This one was almost too tempting…incredibly dense ball of matter = brain of Bryan Fischer.
Fossils. Realize that the fossil record is the only tangible, physical evidence for the theory of evolution that exists. The fossil record is it. There is absolutely nothing else Darwinians have they can show you.
Sadly evolution lacks the same proof that creationist have…a turtle.
The problem: naturally occurring genetic mutations are invariably harmful if not fatal to the organism. Rather than improve an organism’s capacity to survive, they invariably weaken it. That’s why the phrase we most often use to refer to genetic mutations is “birth defects.”
Bryan has watched too many science fiction movies, he thinks all mutations are bad. I bet his turtle is a teenage mutant ninja.
