The abominable snowman must be running around dumping hallucinogens in the Toronto drinking water, because we just found another article for our collection in that city’s esteemed news source, Canada Free Press, which has definitely become the Canadian equivalent of WorldNetDaily.
For the second day in a row, that website has published a column that is worthy of our sophisticated audience. We’re talking about this thing, titled Creation versus Evolution. The author is Bob Burdick, of whom we hadn’t heard before, so we Googled around. Although there are a few people with that name, we found his website — which isn’t very informative. But all we need to know about Burdick is that his work has been deemed acceptable for publication in Canada Free Press. We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Okay, here we go:
How did life begin? This question is as old as life itself; however, answers usually fall to one of two camps: believers of God’s Creation who anchor their faith in the concise description found in the Bible and evolutionists who support their position with bones, fossils, and intricate theories. Both sides, of course, believe the other side is wrong. A fly on the wall might well ask, “Who’s right?”
If, like that fly on the wall, you too are seeking the answer to that question, you’ve come to the right place. Burdick has the answer — and he has rock-solid arguments too. Get this:
One observation supporting Creation is the intricate life forms around us.
Aaaargh!! We’re in for a bumpy ride. Burdick leads off with that old clunker, William Paley’s watchmaker analogy. Well, why not? It’s the cornerstone of the Discoveroids’ “theory” of intelligent design, and it goes like this: If an ignorant dullard stumbles into something that is beyond his ability to understand, his primitive instinct is to assume that it’s the work of the gods. End of analysis. Game over.
But today’s author doesn’t stop there. He goes on to give us some powerfully persuasive examples, which in his opinion are sufficient to cause even the most stubborn skeptic to sink to his knees in wonderment. Here’s the first:
Bats are one example as even the oldest bat fossil ever discovered is identical in design and function as a bat flying today. Evolutionists cannot explain away this chink in their evolutionary theory. On the other hand, Creationists happily accept the bat as just another example of God’s Intelligent Design in all living creatures.
Wowie — bats show no changes at all! But even if that were true, that’s one unchanging species. What about the millions of others that do show rather obvious changes over time? Alas for our intrepid author, although bat fossils are few, there actually has been some change going on. For example, see Onychonycteris, and also Icaronycteris. This is his second example:
The little lightning bug is another good example supporting Creation. How could anything so insignificant in size and purpose have evolved to possess such precision in its characteristics?
Forgive us, dear reader, but we’re going to skip two paragraphs of the author’s gushing over the lightning bug. Click over there to read about it if you like. Perhaps that little insect will lead you to to creationism. Here’s his next argument
Evolutionists dismiss Creation and Intelligent Design and remain unwavering in their theories despite the many gaps. Ironically, these same non-believers of Creation and Intelligent Design are at this time monitoring the mismatch of radio energy spilling from the cosmos, hoping to discover a decipherable radio signal among the jumble. Hmmm. Wouldn’t the discovery of such a signal also point to a source of Intelligent Design?
That’s another worthless argument. See this by Seth Shostak of the SETI Institute: SETI and Intelligent Design. And now we come to the final argument presented by today’s author. You don’t need our help in judging its persuasiveness:
The story of Creation in the Bible has never wavered. The theory of evolution, however, has changed with each discovery of a new fossil or bone. If steadfast reliability counts, and such fabric should count above all else when in search of the truth, our fly on the wall will see the Bible and its account of Creation as the hands-down winner.
Yes, it’s true — creationism never wavers. If indomitable bullheadedness is what you seek, your long quest is over.
Are you overwhelmed, dear reader? Yes, of course you are. We understand. It’s quite an experience to be suddenly hit with The Truth™ after a lifetime of listening to evolutionist lies. Take a little time to recover your equilibrium, and then go forth a wiser person. Your Curmudgeon is pleased to have been of assistance.
