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!

  1. Kirk Cameron (Lying for Jesus: Kirk Cameron Edition)
  2. Dr. Jason Lisle (Reading Answers in Genesis: Probably easier when high.)
  3. Lee Strobel (Lee Strobel: Ex-Atheist or just ignorant?)
  4. Ray Comfort (Banana: Proof of creationism., Ray Comfort has a blog, Ray Comfort: What the fuck, man?)
  5. Rhonda Storms (Fuck Rhonda Storms)
  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?

Rush Limbaugh is an anti-intellectual fat snob who deserves nothing less than the constant shun of every community he claims to be a part of as well as the intellectuals whom he despises so. He shows an incredible misunderstanding of science and basically everything else in reality.

In an article of his, he talks about the Higgs boson and completely distorts what the Higgs boson actually is. It’s not a particle to prove god. It’s something that exists in the insane field of quantum physics. The physics of how things work at a sub-atomic level. Quantum physics is largely theoretical, so we’re still trying to directly prove something that we know exists via mathematics.

But what is it?
