Ray Comfort Hates Science and the Bible Equally

I am pretty certain at this stage that Ray Comfort is someone who is intentionally trying to make Christianity look bad. Just look at this Facebook post of his, which P. Z. Myers shared on his blog: Ancient people often thought that the dry earth is situated above the chaotic waters from which they were [Read More...]

You Weren’t There

Donald Prothero has written a useful article about radiometric dating and young-earth creationist lies and distortions about the subject. The article includes this meme image:     [Read more...]

Unreasonable Demand of Antievolutionists

The above image comes from EvolutionEvidence.org, which has a whole page dedicated to intermediate fossils and the evidence they provide for biological evolution. [Read more...]

Flood Geology on Mars

When people ask why you make fun of young-earth creationists, there is no better place to point them to than the article on the Answers in Genesis website about Mars. It concludes: While data from both Spirit and Opportunity support a catastrophic model of Martian geology, Opportunity has shown that Meridiani Planum was catastrophically flooded [Read More...]

Selective Rejection of Evidence

Young-earth creationists say that housecats, tigers, and all felines descended from one pair of cat “kind” after the flood, positing ultra-fast evolution in order to do so. They also say that humans could not have descended from a common ancestor with chimpanzees and other primates even over millions of years. The hypocrisy is astounding, as [Read More...]

Teach the Doublethink Controversy

On my post about the Orwellian character of young-earth creationism, a commenter pointed out that a popular t-shirt series which deals with young-earth creationism also has one for doublethink:     [Read more...]
