This is a truly amazing series of Youtube videos debunking creationist’s beliefs propaganda. You don’t know who creationists are? Consider yourself lucky (unless you unknowingly happen to be one). There are various degree of this mental disorder, and in its toughest form it leads people to believe that the Earth is 6,000 years old, men used to live up to 900 years and roamed the earth along with dinosaurs. Evolution never happened, all body of scientific knowledge is complete junk or falsification.
The author, Thunderf00t, has broad scientific erudition, and humorously, but very factually, debunks creationists’ myths and “arguments” they use to succumb scientifically illiterate to their blind faith. Everybody gets their fair treatment:
- VenomFangX, the famous YouTube creationism preacher, aka “posterboy for creationist stupidity”
- Kent Hovind, a self-proclaimed PhD and a criminal, founder of Creation Science Evangelism (sic)
- Ben Stein, a TV celebrity, who produced one of the most obnoxious documentaries ever, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, in which he links evolution to Nazy Germany, claiming that “science leads you to killing people” (sic!!!, see part 24)
It’s hard for me to believe so much stupidity can exists in this world. I’m glad I’m not alone:
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
— Albert Einstein
But aside from genuine stupidity, what really strikes me is the arrogance of creationists as it has become obvious long time ago that most (if not all) of them has very little grasp of the ideas they’re trying to dispute. The sad part of it is that these people really aim to influence politics, science and education. Please watch. It’s 26 parts, but it’s worth it!
Part 22 – this one is about Ben Stein’s Expelled!
Part 23 – also about Ben Stein
Part 24 – wow, science leads you to killing people!
Part 26 – this one is about Sarah Palin
