OUR regular readers know that WorldNetDaily (WND) was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s coveted Buffoon Award, and in honor of that achievement announced in July of last year we’ve adorned this post with the jolly symbol they’ve earned.
Recently, WND has been breaking new records for buffoonery by promoting the creationism of Ray Comfort. We’ve written a few articles about this peculiar relationship. See: WorldNetDaily, Ray Comfort, and Brain Death; then see Flat Earth, Uranus, & WorldNetDaily; and if you want more, see Ray Comfort: New Standard of Stupid.
But WND keeps on amazing us with the extent to which they’re willing to go in convincing the world of their foolishness. Now they’ve got a new article at their website: Putting Darwin to the test. This one is especially buffoonish because it’s written by Joseph Farah, editor-in-chief of WND. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
My friend Ray Comfort has some great ideas for commemorating Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday, earlier this year, and the upcoming 150th anniversary of the publication of “Origin of the Species.”
First, he wrote a great book, “Nothing Created Everything.” Just the title alone is sheer genius. The subtitle is “The scientific impossibility of atheistic evolution.” Comfort looks at the pseudo-scientific silliness Darwin’s ideas popularized 150 years ago.
Okay, Farah’s friend has written that “great book.” What else has he done? We’re kept in suspense for a bit, because Farah wants to tell us what he himself thinks about Darwin. You’re just dying to know, aren’t you? Let’s find out:
Today, it is virtually impossible to escape being indoctrinated with evolutionary theory. I don’t mean that evolution is taught as a theory. Just the opposite. It is taught as scientific doctrine, despite the fact that it is non-observable, non-testable and, frankly, nonsensical.
There, I said it. This should give those intellectuals at MSNBC, Media Matters and the Huffington Puffington Post some good fodder for their next round of smears and name-calling. Nevertheless, that’s what I believe.
True bravery! What else does Farah believe? We continue:
I don’t believe the Earth is billions of years old. I don’t believe animals have transitioned from one species to another. And I certainly don’t believe that nothing created everything. I once believed it. I don’t anymore.
Why? Because I looked at the so-called “evidence.” And found none. Ray Comfort did, too.
Most impressive! Two great minds, Comfort and Farah, have looked for the evidence and found none. There’s not much else to be said, except we were promised more great ideas from Comfort. Let’s read on:
But he [Comfort] didn’t just write another great book. He also re-published Darwin’s “Origin of the Species” so people could actually read it for themselves – something, I suspect, most people who believe his theory have never bothered to do. And he priced it so that no one would have any excuse – at just $4.99.
We’re doomed! If people actually read Darwin’s book, they’ll discover that it’s just a collection of bawdy limericks. The secret will be out! But wait, there’s more!
But Ray Comfort didn’t stop there. He and his buddy, actor Kirk Cameron, are also giving away 120,000 copies of Darwin’s book on 100 university campuses this year.
Now, ask yourself this question: Why are people who think Darwin’s nuts evangelistically distributing more copies of “Origin of the Species” than his evolutionary disciples?
Uh, we’ll take a guess — because they’re idiots? Let’s see what Farah says:
The answer, of course, is because actually reading Darwin’s ideas today is laughable – even though they form the very foundation of evolutionary theory.
Oh. Jeepers! On with the article:
But even Darwin admitted that unless the fossil record could validate his theories, they would deserve to be scrapped. Here we are 150 years later and we’re still searching for the transitional fossil record.
Golly! No transitional fossils. Our teachers lied to us! Here’s one more excerpt:
Instead, what we find is an amazing fossil record that suggests fossilized animals fall into one of two categories – still living today or extinct. We find familiar fossilized mammals buried right near extinct dinosaurs. The dirty little secret is we even find fossilized evidence of man right next to dinosaurs deemed by evolutionists to have been extinct for tens of millions of years.
We’re devastated. In one brilliant article, Farah has destroyed everything we’ve believed in. All is lost!
Your Curmudgeon is weeping. Until Farah and Comfort actually took the time to look behind the curtain, we had the world fooled into thinking we had evidence for evolution. But now the world’s longest running conspiracy is over. We’re going to lose all the money, the power, and the women that evolution brought us. It’s all over!
Farah and Comfort have brought down the evil house of Darwin.
