Kirk Cameron and the Crocoduck

Kirk Cameron's crocoduck

Kirk Cameron's crocoduck

YOU all remember Kirk Cameron. He’s the former child star who grew up to be a creationist, about whom we’ve written a time or two. For example: Flat Earth, Uranus, & WorldNetDaily.

Cameron has embarked on a campaign with Ray Comfort to give away 100,000 copies of a “special edition” of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species on 100 university campuses. It’s a special edition because it includes a 50-page introduction by Comfort that — allegedly — disproves evolution.

But that’s not all! It appears that Cameron’s creationist accomplishments are far more impressive than his coupling with Comfort. He’s also known for his appearance on the Bill O’Reilly show. Check out this YouTube video: Kirk Cameron and the crocoduck. To experience the thrill of actually seeing the boy wonder mention the crocoduck, scoot to the 2 minute point on the tape and then … behold!

As expected, the sinister evolution conspiracy isn’t taking this kind of pressure without fighting back. At Richard Dawkins’ website, they’re offering — yes! — a Crocoduck T-Shirt. That page says, with bold added by us:

After Kirk Cameron used the non-existence of the ‘crocoduck’ (half crocodile, half duck) as an argument against evolution, crocoduck-mania took to the web like wildfire. But instead of becoming the silver-bullet argument Kirk Cameron had hoped for, it became the icon of evolution-denying stupidity at which we can all laugh.

To celebrate this epic failure by the anti-evolution crowd, RichardDawkins.net has created the “University of Intelligent Design Crocoducks” team t-shirt!

We don’t plan to buy one, but it just might be what you’re looking for. Check it out.

    Excuse me while I go find bleach or lye to inject into my brain to efface this image.

    Oh dear, perhaps I worded that clumsily.

  3. Cracked.com had a thing on Kirk Cameron in an article they did a few weeks ago. Apparently this isn’t a recent thing. He’s been a complete tool for a very long time, making everyone’s life on the set of whatever show he was on miserable with his seriously over the top religiosity, something I define as wanting everyone to be at your standards of religion….

  6. Though I continue to doubt the Crocoduck, I am entirely persuaded that the Cretards possess a Crock o’ something….

  7. We have many famous examples of living things which have been intelligently designed: the flying horse, the roc, the centaur. Species which result from evolution, whatever their shortcomings, do have the one distinguishing characteristic that they have all existed.

  8. One of the ironies, I suppose, is that we do have fossil remains of lots and lots of animals that are transitional between crocodiles and ducks.* But as a Young-Earth Creationist, Cameron and Co. are utterly incapable of seeing them as such.

    * well, not technically right — dinosaurs and crocodiles have basal archosaurs in common, but dinosaurs didn’t evolve from crocodiles.

  9. I think it was best put for Cameron as “not even wrong…”

  10. Albanaeon: “I think it was best put for Cameron as ‘not even wrong…’.”

    Gotta put the various “kinds” of creationist in perspective, though. If Cameron is asked whether humans and dinosaurs coexisted, whether they share common ancestors, and how many years ago dinosaurs went extinct, chances are some of his answers would be demonstrably wrong. Meanwhile the “kinds” that evade such questions make sure to be “not even wrong.”

    Is it properly called a “crocoduck”, or is it a “duckodile”?

  12. Unfortunately, I fear that this “Young Earth” and “Intellegent Design” made up science will ultimately hurt America by religating us to that of a third world nation when it comes to the basic sciences. They are not promoting scientific discussion but simply preaching the dogma. It’s sad and it will hurt the country by confusing young, impressionable children into believing in magic instead of solid scientific investigation and peer review of theories and evidence. They will set science back 500 years.
