These are the times that trouble a Curmudgeon’s soul. From our secret underground headquarters, we diligently scan the news to learn about the latest developments in The Controversy between evolution and creationism, but for days at a stretch there’s nothing to see except mindless fluff about that new video from Ray Comfort, the banana man.
You think that‘s news? Okay, here’s another press release about it: Movie that Debunks Evolution to Premiere in Tenn. Near Anniversary of Scopes ‘Monkey Trial’. It says:
According to Comfort, the film is essentially a second Scopes trial, putting evolutionary scientists from UCLA and USC on the witness stand and challenging them to present evidence for the theory.
Is that the best the creationists can do these days? Is that what we’re supposed to blog about — a former street preacher who interviews and then edits and quote-mines his subjects’ responses? We can quote-mine too, if we were so inclined. Hey — how about this, from Genesis 19, verse 36, cobbled together with a few words from Exodus 22, verse 30:
Did you like that? We’ve got a million of ’em — and we don’t even need to stitch together disassociated passages. How about these:
See? Nothing to it. We don’t need Darwin to promote a lifestyle of brutality and licentiousness. The Good Book is sufficient. But that’s silly stuff, included here merely to show the intellectual bankruptcy of the creationists’ methods.
Where are the great creationist of yesteryear? We long for the old days, when there were statewide legislative battles being reported several times a day, led by what then seemed to be an army of tireless lady warriors — not only strong in their faith, but lovely to look at.
To remind you of those glory days, take a look at something we posted back in September of ’09 — A Gallery of Creationist Hotties. The graphic above today’s post is only one of the pictorial delights that await you there.
So we’re doing what Curmudgeons do — we’re complaining. Come on, creationists — give us something to work with! If Ray Comfort is the best you’ve got, then why don’t you just retire from the field with what little remains of your honor, and find something else to do?
