However creationists yet to see the full picture. It seems me and about half the other atheists in the blogoshpere have forgotten HOW to blog. Howeve I just came across this site right before heading to bed and just couldn’t help but sharing!
The spiritually(mentally) handicapped people at Creation Ministries International offer a full dvd called…
(drum roll please)…
This is an amazing step forward to their credit! The most ignorant people to grace this earth actually produce a video; to try to cover up some of their own ignorance! It’s great! It’s wonderful! Just check it out for yourself to check out all the laughs the video promotion itself can produce. I might even order a copy for myself.
This has to be one of the smartest creations of any religion since the idea of hell. The way creationists keep spitting out fallacies and ignorance this is business pursuit is a win. There’s no end to material in sight! However, if I were to create a video for things creationists should not say it would be rather short. I’d tell them simply to just not say anything at all =)
So anyhow on to the laugh parade…
You get succinct explanations and warnings regarding:
- Archaeopteryx—neither fake nor the transitional bird
- Darwin’s deathbed recantation
- New Zealand ‘plesiosaur’
- Solar neutrinos
- Archaeological claims of the late Ron Wyatt
- Moon dust
- NASA’s alleged finding of Joshua’s long day
- Hezekiah’s sun dial
- How NOT to use the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics
- Wingless beetles
Discover how to avoid or overcome:
- Scientific fallacies
- Outdated arguments
- Overstated universal statements
This information should NOT be treated as Top Secret!
HAAAAAA! Lets first look at that last bit. Top Secret? Who’s been hiding it? Certainly not Atheists as we seem nothing but eager to share this with our theistic aquantences. Its my observation the only attempt to hide from these (mostly) hard hitting punches is from the cowering religious. Throughout the site several times the word “outdated” arguements is presented. To me this is just another way of saying “Those arguements that somebody took, and with scientific evidence crashed and burnt down deep into the ground.” Like I said, they clearly got a series of these coming.
But wait, there’s more!
‘Evolution is just a theory.’ What people usually mean when they say this is ‘Evolution is not proven fact, so it should not be promoted dogmatically.’ Therefore people should say that. The problem with using the word ‘theory’ in this case is that scientists use it to mean a well-substantiated explanation of data. This includes well-known ones such as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and Newton’s Theory of Gravity, and lesser-known ones such as the Debye–Hückel Theory of electrolyte solutions and the Deryagin–Landau/Verwey–Overbeek (DLVO) theory of the stability of lyophobic sols, etc. It would be better to say that particles-to-people evolution is an unsubstantiated hypothesis or conjecture.
So use the same poor argument, but word it a little differnt so that you’re not completely an arogant ass.
Now reading over this you’ll start thinking a few counter arguments to their claims that you think they may have overlooked. In fact; they had addressed two of mine just in my quick overview!
I noticed that a lot of the arguments supported microevolution but not macro. Of course the principles are mostly the same with the exception of the length of time. Their defense:
That is, particles-to-people evolution requires changes that increase genetic information, but all we observe is sorting and loss of information. We have yet to see even a ‘micro’ increase in information, although such changes should be frequent if evolution were true.
Howeve the theory of evolution isn’t directed towards the origin of life, but rather to explan the variation and abundance of species. How things have changed over time to create more complex organisms. However “Abiogenesis” does attempt at the beginnings of life. Abiogenesis is a much more debatable subject with more competetancy in theories than evolution, which is hardly a debatable subject. However creationists so ignorantly and foolishly target.
Take a gander, I’ll post more later.
