This one will be especially difficult, dear reader, because it requires that you think like a creationist. We’ve posted many times about various things creationists imagine to be evidence for their beliefs. They’ve raved about every creature and every feature of reality, claiming that only their divine designer — blessed be he! — could have done such a thing.
It’s difficult to out-perform creationists in this area. Absurd arguments come naturally to them. We tried once — see The Ultimate Proof of Intelligent Design — but we know that if you make the effort, you can do better.
Imagine that you’re a creationist. You know with absolute certainty that science is evil and logical thought is the devil’s trap to lure you into the Lake of Fire. Okay, now let your mind wander, as you seek the most powerful argument you can think of to support your belief in creationism. This isn’t easy, so take you time. Don’t play until you’re ready.
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!
