THIS is the latest in our “Stupid Driven” series, in which we offer disconnected observations we’ve made while reporting on The Controversy between evolution and creationism. These are sometimes taken from our earlier articles, but all of them were inspired by reading and analyzing the “work” of creationists.
When a creationist argues “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler; complexity, complexity, complexity,” it’s a waste of time to respond. But if you must, we suggest that a response like: “Incest, retardation, lunacy, brain death,” makes far more sense than the creationist’s accusation. But don’t do it. Just walk away.
If a creationist asks why apes don’t give birth to humans, and crocodiles don’t produce ducks, one can respond that it’s for the same reason your parents can only produce your siblings, not your distant cousins.
Ray Comfort’s “special edition” of Darwin’s Origin of Species is as ludicrous as a “special edition” of the Federalist Papers with Marx’s Manifesto as an introduction.
And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your Curmudgeon can do for you — ask what you can do for your Curmudgeon. (That makes no sense, but it sounds great!)
There’s only one week remaining to complete your arrangements for Kitzmas, the anniversary of the decision on 20 December 2005 by Judge John E. Jones III in the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.
