I love how Creationist “logic” works when faced with someone armed with the facts…
First, a Christian website posted this ridiculous cartoon:
Of course, we know the two situations are completely different.
Snakes don’t talk. Neither do amoebas. We do, now, after billions of years of evolutionary progress. You’re crazy if you think a snake actually existed and actually spoke to an actual Adam and an actual Eve.
Several commenters point this out to the author of the post, C Michael Patton. Let me direct you to one commenter in particular, Sean R Reid:
Then, Patton responds to Reid (and others) and Reid writes back:
But Patton continues…
… and then puts it to a stop.
Got it? You can’t make this about evolution and creation because that’s *so* not what the comic was about. Even though the reason it makes no sense has everything to do with how evolution works.
So, to summarize:
- A Creationist posts a comic that makes no sense.
- Someone who understands evolution points out that the comic makes no sense.
- The Creationist puts his fingers in his ears and goes, “LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!” and then shuts down all discussion because it’s making him look bad.
It’s easy to believe in nonsense when you refuse to listen to voices of reason.
