Welcome to our “Stupid Driven” series, in which we offer disconnected observations we’ve made while reporting on The Controversy between evolution and creationism. These nuggets are usually taken from our earlier articles, but all of them were inspired by reading and analyzing the “work” of creationists. And yes, our title is a crude spoof on The Purpose Driven Life.
The last one of these was a year ago: Part XIV. It has a link to the previous episode, and so on. Everybody ready? Okay, here we go:
Discoveroids are always saying that because of all their blog posts, self-published books, podcasts, etc., the mere volume of what they’re cranking out is evidence of a genuine debate about their “science,” so it should be taught in the schools. It’s their Teach the Controversy campaign. However, if you add up all the stuff that’s been produced about astrology, the volume is probably even greater. But no one thinks there’s a scientific controversy about astrology that deserves to be taught in our schools.
You should always be on the alert for examples of what we call the Creationist Scientific Method:
Last year we posted Don’t Forget ’15 Answers’ from Scientific American. It’s still good advice. The full title of their article is 15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense. It was published eighteen years ago, and it still debunks most of what creationists are claiming.
And now, a little poem to announce what you’ve all been waiting for:
Mars is red, Uranus is blue,
This is a Free Fire Zone
Just for you.
You know the rules, dear reader. Have at it!
