The Drool-o-tron™ was laughing. We never heard it do that before. Then its sirens and flashing lights kicked in.
The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND). Our computer was locked onto WND’s presentation of the latest video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries.
WND’s headline is Simple mousetrap blows holes in evolution, and it has a sub-title: “David Rives explains scientific concept of irreducible complexity.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Wikipedia has an article on Irreducible complexity, which they call “a pseudoscientific theory promoted by advocates of intelligent design.” It has a specific section on The mousetrap example.
We groaned in anticipation of the idiocy we would encounter, but the Drool-o-tron™ forced us to look. The rev has his own title for the video, which is Irreducible Complexity.
He doesn’t tell us anything new. It’s the same story that Michael Behe invented years ago, which has no value whatsoever. Most creationists don’t bother with the mousetrap argument any more, but the rev’s audience is more backward than most, so they’re likely to regard it as something new and powerful.
The rev isn’t wearing a necktie, but he’s still the cutest rev you’ve ever seen! The video is his usual 90-second presentation — before the commercial. Go ahead, click over to WND and watch it.
As we always do with the rev’s videos, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Okay, the comments are open. Go for it!
Addendum: We’ve been slimed! WND is recycling an oldie. We posted about it last July — see Rev. David Rives: Mousetrap Proves Creationism. Ah well, we still have the Free Fire Zone.
