I was watching some Youtube clips from people similar to Kirk Cameron and his buddy Ray Comfort (who I’ll be blogging on shortly), and I found one of my favorite Creationist loons: Lee Strobel!
As you can see, he knows nothing of evolution. He was never an atheist, he was just igorant to both sides and only fairly searched one side. He had assumed he knew it all on the no-god side and used that to justify his “sinful” ways, then he searched creationism and found the opposite.
Problem is, he only really learned about creationism.
How can I say this? He used the concept of Micro- vs. Macroevolution, which are both non-scientific terms. Enough microevolution (like small variation in dogs, which he talks about) leads to macroevolution (such as other types of animals). It does happen. The concept of microevolution is proof enough for macroevolution.
If you walk a foot per minute, you’ll still reach a mile eventually.
Not only that, but he points out the “millions” of transitional fossils which are missing, despite the fact that just one would prove his assertion wrong. This is a foot-in-mouth moment because there are thousands of transitional fossils.
Not only this, but fossils are a rare happening. Fossils take very specific requirements to form, this is compounded by the fact that after fossils form they can still be damaged, corroded or likewise… Then there’s the problem of finding them. They’re not easy to find.
Welcome, victim #3:
- Kirk Cameron
- Dr. Jason Lisle
- Lee Strobel
Congrats on making it this far, hope to hear a lot more creatonist garbage from you in the future!
