If We Came From Apes, Then Come And Answer This Question, Smartypants!

The Seneca Bible Baptist Church, outside of Seneca Falls in upstate New York, has issued a challenge to all the secular eggheads in the area, their neighbors who actually believe in the theory of biological evolution through natural selection as proposed by the original Darwinist, Charles Darwin. The church has posted the sign you see [...]

Earth Is A Hot Young Thing To Many Republicans

Republican politics demands that its followers accept scientifically untenable ideas, and most Republicans are willing to give in to that demand. [...]

Maine State Representative: Clay Proves Christian God was Right, but there’s No Scientific Evidence for Evolution

There are times when no comment is necessary. This is one of those times. Shared via screen capture to preserve the beauty for the future.

Twitter is not forever: read the exchange for yourself right here, as long as it lasts.

Darwinian Legislation

The Darwin Day resolution withered and died without ever having the opportunity to conduct the equivalent of a mating ritual. [...]

If God Works, How Come Mothers Only Have Two Hands?

I saw this sign yesterday while travelling through South Somerville, Maine. If this were a valid ding against the scientific theory of evolution — which doesn’t claim that evolutionary pressures create absolutely optimal biological design — then wouldn’t it also be a criticism of the religious theory of God — which does claim that its [...]

Tirade By Congressman Paul Broun On Evolution Steps Beyond Arena Of A Religious Test

That’s why, whether they’re Christian or not, the residents of Paul Broun’s congressional district in Georgia would do well to vote him out of office on Election Day next month. [...]

One Million Year Fires And Hot Shit

Apparently, piles of decomposing bat guano can become so hot that they light on fire all by themselves. [...]

Krampus Knows How Old The Earth Is

Krampus responded, “Let’s not pussyfoot around the problem. Voting is over-rated. We’re talking about the truth here, not opinion. Jesus told me the truth, and I don’t see any reason to vote about that. I’m best buddies with Jesus, and that ought to be more than enough to reassure everybody.” [...]

118th Way to Exasperate a Liberal: Rely on Conservapedia as your Source of Truth

James Delingpole’s 152nd way to Drive a Liberal Crazy:

#152. Announce you’ve been boycotting Wikipedia ever since you discovered that its supposedly neutral entries have been hijacked by leftists and eco-fascists. From now on you’ll rely on the only online encyclopedia that tells it straight: Conservapedia.

Conservapedia tells it straight? Read this Conservapedia entry for [...]

Bump and Wind? Watching the Watchmaker Argument

Lots of Watches breaks down the analogy until it falls into little bitty pieces:

If I came upon a watch, i would assume it had a maker.

Unless I saw lots and lots of watches. All different types of watches. And these watches were all running around, doing lots of interesting things.

And if 2 [...]

Transitional Forms: Que Sediba, Sediba

How can evolution be taught over creationism in the public schools when there are no transitional forms?

We should be clear about this: If Darwin’s Theory is correct, we should be able to find a well defined trail of fossils that clearly show the gradual, very slow change of distant ancestors to man. Simply put, [...]
