The long holiday weekend is providing us with literally nothing to blog about. That’s no problem for us. Creationists may be in hibernation, but your Curmudgeon will use this lull in The Controversy between evolution and creationism to once again present a challenge to you, dear reader.
We’ve all been amused watching creationists as they fumble around in their ignorance and attempt to present what they imagine are scientific arguments against evolution and in favor of creationism. Their efforts are always laughable, not only because they don’t understand what they’re talking about, but also because they don’t know how to think logically.
But we’ve never had a good description of them — at least not one that uses respectable language. Oh sure, we jeeringly refer to them as “creation scientists” — and that says a lot — but we need a strong analogy that will be immediately understood — albeit probably not by creationists. The form of today’s challenge is that you must tell us, with reasonable brevity:
To get you started, here’s the sort of thing we’re looking for: A creationist arguing against evolution is like an E. coli bacterium in your large intestine attempting to describe the Solar System.
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!
