At the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog, there’s a brief post promoting … well, see for yourself. It’s titled Stephen Meyer Gets Animated in New PragerU Video.
The thing was written by Andrew McDiarmid. We have no idea who he is, but he hosts a bunch of the Discoveroids’ podcasts. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection has, with some modifications, been embraced as unassailable by the science community over the last century. So much so that evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins has famously stated that “If you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane.” But is that right?
Good question! Is Dawkins right? We once tried our hand at it and came up with the Curmudgeon’s manifesto: A creationist is either an ignoramus, a simpleton, a fanatic, a charlatan, or some combination thereof. That’s in Creationists: Ignorant, Stupid, Insane, or Wicked. But we can’t improve on Dawkins, so let’s get back to the Discoveroids. McDiarmid says:
In a new PragerU video [whatever that is], Stephen Meyer answers the question by presenting two big reasons to doubt the evolutionary account of life’s origins — the Cambrian explosion and the DNA enigma.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Big reasons indeed! After that, McDiarmid tells us:
The animated video [Animated? Wowie!] is a nice summary of Meyer’s book-length treatments of those two problems. And at under six minutes in length, the video makes a great conversation starter!
Conversation starter? Sure. Just walk up to a pretty girl and say: “Hey, how’d you like to see a creationist video?” Works every time!
Here’s McDiarmid’s final paragraph:
Watch it now, and be sure to share it with your friends and family. [Oh yeah!] Also note that a study guide is available, as well as a transcript of Meyer’s commentary. You can even take a five-question quiz after watching it to make sure you were paying attention. Enjoy!
The video is available at the Discoveroid post, so get on over there and take a look. If you do, let us know what it’s all about.
