Professional creationist make a comfortable living by telling their drooling supporters that evolution is nonsense, and … well, you know the rest. But deep down, the scammers know that their racket is vulnerable. They’re always worried about what scientists may find that will totally destroy their sleazy livelihood — or at least diminish creationism to the status of the Flat Earth Society.
Today’s challenge is to identify the weakest link in creationism. We’ve previously discussed that they live in terror of the day when scientists will actually create life in the lab — but the creationists are ready for that one. They’ll claim that what happened in the lab didn’t happen naturally — it was accomplished by intelligent design.
We’ve also thought that the discovery of life elsewhere in the galaxy would sink the creationists’ ship, because they claim that Earth was uniquely created to be congenial to life. But creationists are gearing up for that one too, by claiming that the discovery of un-intelligent life wouldn’t prove anything. Even intelligent life could be dismissed as not created “in his image,” and their game would go on.
There has to be something that would totally demolish creationism. But what would it be? The form of today’s challenge is that you must tell us, with reasonable brevity:
You know the rules: You may enter the contest as many times as you wish, but you must avoid profanity, vulgarity, childish anatomical analogies, etc. Also, avoid slanderous statements about individuals. Feel free to comment on the entries submitted by others — with praise, criticism, or whatever — but you must do so tastefully.
There may not be a winner of this contest, but if there is, your Curmudgeon will decide, and whenever we get around to it we’ll announce who the winner is. There is no tangible prize — as always in life’s great challenges, the accomplishment is its own reward. We now throw open the comments section, dear reader. Go for it!
