Creationist Wisdom — Example Seven

TODAY’S EXAMPLE of creationist wisdom is from North Carolina’s Wilmington Star-News, which carries this in its Letters to the Editor section: Micro Not Macro.

[We’d like to give you some excerpts from the news story, but that paper is being acquired by Stephens Media, and they’re suing bloggers who excerpt their content without permission. So you’ll have to click over there to read it for yourself.]

Have we seen this micro-macro argument before? Yes, thousands of times, and it never fails to amuse us. More:


Jeepers, he’s right! There’s no half-bird, half-virus fossil. How could we have missed that?

  1. Memo to the Top Secret Fossil Fabrication Unit of the International Darwintern Conspiracy

    Quick! Knock up some half-bird half-virus transitional fossils, the Godly Ones have exposed a glaring flaw in our ‘evidence’!

  2. I thought that half-toad, half-possum fossil we slapped together last year would do the trick, but they want more! I’m so stressed out.

    Well, there’s always the megalonyx fossil. Drill a couple of holes in it and glue on a 2×4 and they’ll never know it.

  4. I am often amazed by people who knock science because they say science can’t explain [fill in the blank]. Uh, isn’t that really the point of science, to fill in the blanks? We don’t know how or why something occurs. Science says, lets look and see if we can figure it out. If you go with an intelligent designer, no need to figure anything out. The designer did it, he/she/it must have had a reason, we don’t need to question it. Oh for the good old days when we knew that illness was a punishment from god. You know, before science says they found invisible germs that do it.
