I know I end up saying much on the subject regarding every supposed ex-atheist I can find, but it’s a subject that just keeps on giving. Just once I would like to find a now-Creationist and ex-atheist who actually understands evolution.

But it’s not this guy.

Since Darwin put forth his original theory, scientists have sought fossil evidence indicating past organic transitions. Nearly 150 years later, there has been no evidence of evolutionary transition found thus far in the fossil record. In Darwin’s own words, if his theory of “macro-evolution” were true, we would see a vast number of fossils at intermediate stages of biological development. In fact, based on standard mathematical models, we would see far more transitional forms in the fossil record than complete specimens. However, we see none — not one true transitional specimen has ever been found.

Either he’s intentionally ignorant or just lying.

On FSTDT, we have our own saying that we took from futurama. When a fundie explains evolution or the big bang wrong, as not a single one of them has gotten it right, we say that or a variation thereof. For instance: the big bang does not work that way!

Evolution explains something observed in nature: species are not fixed. Through different environments in nature, species adapt over time into completely new types of animal. Or just die out, but the ones we care about are the ones that adapted.

Anyway, evolution seems to be a pretty simple concept, yes? Well, groups like Answers in Gensis have been fighting it since like the 1980s and still don’t have a firm grasp on it.

So Bill Donohue, bumbling idiot, decides to go after my favorite blogger, all-around nice guy (except to religion!), and professor PZ Myers…

…For a cracker. Read up on PZ’s blog here first, then check this link. These guys are fast, PZ posted about this just yesterday. Some kid decides to go to Catholic Mass and steal the Body of Christ. Bill Donohue, moron supreme, goes crazy and says it’s a hate crime.

PZ contends that it is, in fact, a god damn cracker. Then he tells us to steal one of said goddamn crackers and send them to him to see some real sacrilege. This, apparently, starts Bill’s cycle. So now he’s going to bleed for a week, presumably without dying, sadly, and bitch about evil PZ Myers.

Here’s one for you, Donohue: late last year I went to Catholic Mass (despite being openly atheist), stole not one but TWO holy crackers, flushed one down the toilet on Jan. 1st of this year, and now keep the other one in my guitar hero hide-shit-from-people box. I think that one’s going to PZ.

So, PZ, if you find a cracker in your mail suddenly, know that it’s to you from… heh heh… Bill Donohue!

Aside from Bill being on his period and one kid about to lose an education over a cracker, they’re going to directly go for PZ’s job. That’s right. For asking someone to smuggle a cracker out of a Catholic Church, fighting off all of the ninjas, just so PZ can amicably commit some incomprehensible act of blasphemy, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil (wtf?) rights wants to take away PZ’s hard earned job at the Uni where he works.

Let’s take a second to grasp this: over a goddamn cracker.

Michelle Malkin calls us libruls crazy motherfuckers, but we’ve never sent out death threats, other threats, and actually tried to take away a person’s hard earned job or education over a goddamn cracker.

It gets me. Every time. On the plus side, we do have a new inductee!

  2. Dr. Jason Lisle (Reading Answers in Genesis: Probably easier when high.)
  3. Lee Strobel (Lee Strobel: Ex-Atheist or just ignorant?)

  6. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (DO SOMETHING IN LOUISIANA! QUICK!, Now the Candle Burns at both Ends)
  7. Rush Limbaugh (Rush Limbaugh)
  8. Bill Donohue

What do I win?

I’m a regular visitor to my good friend Ray Comfort’s blog. He’s a very smart guy who believes in young Earth Creationism and has actually said you can’t be a Christian if you are one for an extended period of time and still ‘believe’ in evolution.

OK, in his defense, I’m not sure whether or not he used the micro- vs. macro- evolution save. If the opportunity presents itself, I’m sure he did. After all, he knows viruses evolve and wants to use our medicine to extend his very valuable life, but doesn’t believe in that heathen part where humans evolved from monkeys.

God damn it man, I’m almost at nerves end reading this guy’s blog. Before someone decides to defend him, let me just say that I’m sure he’s a completely normal and cool guy if you know him, sinner or not. No, really. But for all intents and purposes, Ray Comfort is a douche like no other, with the possible exception of his partner in anti-crime, Kirk “Dumbass” Cameron.

Annoying title aside, there’s something that is about to make Louisiana go down the drain, quick. The dubiously titled Louisiana Science Education Act is about anything but science. I’m sure you wouldn’t have to dig too deep to find out that it’s endorsed by the Disco ‘tute and many other batshit insane Christian fundamentalist groups.

It’s another “Academic Freedom” front, which, as I’ve stated before, is not about Academic Freedom at all. Again, these policies that allow teachers to confront controversial issues are solely about making evolution seem like a fairytale and pimping their imaginary friend as the cause for everything. You don’t believe me?

This bill would allow:

  • Teaching of “holes” and so-called “gaps” in evolutionary theory which are really unresearched parts of evolutionary theory that will be tackled by scientists at some point in time. There are no “gaps” or “holes” in evolutionary theory.
  • Teaching that evolution is imperfect, and thus qualifies as a belief, similar to Christianity. Evolution, like any scientific theory, runs on data gathered through true research such as geology, archaeology, and genetics.
  • Teaching that evolution is controversial, and that there are really two sides, one side being creationism. There are not two sides on the scientific spectrum, as creationism, and furthermore, Intelligent Design, are not science. 99.9% of all scientists in related fields agree in full with evolution.

And much, much more nonsensical bullshit that the far right have become very successful in. The art of “Lying for Jesus.”

For everyone that doesn’t think this is a real threat, the reason you can survive tiberculosis, bacterial infections, the flu, even the fucking common cold, is due to knowledge gained by evolutionary biology put in motion by other fields of biology that rely on evolutionary knowledge. In other words, without evolution, you would probably be very sick or very dead.

Which is why this type of thought is not only the opposite of good science education, but downright dangerous, as I’ve outlined many, many times prior.

Even worse is that Gov. Bobby Jindal, possible Vice President candidate for John McCain, is a creationist, exoricst, anti-science, pro-creation buffoon who supports this stuff. I can’t see him denying it, so this bill or act looks as if it will make it into state legislation. I wish someone would step up and challenge it, but since it is fundamentally against the constitution, it will take one of two things:

  1. Someone picks on Creationism and creationists go on the offensive, believing that it would promote evolution, the big bang, and science over their imagination and ‘beliefs’. This would be the most pleasing part, due to the tables being turned on this dubious piece of legislation.
  2. We see another Kitzmiller vs. Dover case in the making when some idiot decides to bring creationism into the classroom in any form and forces it on the unwilling children, and then some smart Louisianian decides that enough is enough. This would be the most destructive; supporters of the act as well as creationists could then use it to substantiate the claims made in Expelled about “Big Science” silencing opponents to evolutionary theory. This, as you can imagine, would be bad.

That’s our special bullshit alert of the day, but it’s not over yet. One last thing…

Newest Creationist Failure on our list.

Our #4 person on the list of Creationist failures has a blog setup on Blogspot.com, a blogging service owned by Google.

His blog you can find here.

Some of the logic used on the site is stunning at best. For example;

“So, a talking snake, a man living in a whale’s stomach for three days, a virgin pregnancy and a man walking on water, don’t contradict logic?”

So, a talking parrot, three hundred people flying through the sky in a big tin can called a 747, a human being growing inside another person, men walking on the moon, don’t contradict logic? Of course they do, if you are small-minded. However, science and technology have exploded the word. It has a completely different meaning than it had one hundred years ago.

OK, what? It continues.

First things first: YOU stole MY story, I’m stealing YOURS! (I know it wasn’t the same subject matter in Ray Comfort’s case, but I was actually going to write on basically everything he did ;-; )

Anyway Michelle Malkin got an ad pulled from Dunkin Donuts for… what else… the notion that by wearing a scarf, the main person portrayed in the commercial must be a Nazi, or something. (The correct something is a terrorist, Islamic terrorist)

This really made me wonder: what the hell, Dunkin?

I have never heard of something as irresponsible as an entire ad being removed from circulation because of a scarf. I’ve also not heard it claimed very often that certain types of scarves are only warn by Islamic terrorists. I guess that’s the liberal media, at it again, brainwashing me to hate America.
