Barbara Forrest was on Larry King Live tonight in one of the most absurd discussions of evolution and intelligent design imaginable. For some reason, they had a huge list of guests – a young earth creationist, Jay Richards of the Discovery Institute, Barbara, two senators (one on each side) and – bizarrely – Deepok Chopra. What the hell Chopra was doing there is beyond me. And just to give you a perfect example of why the media is the last place to look for accurate information on this subject, Larry King introduced Barbara with the question, “How can you reject creationism completely because if evolution is true, why are there still monkeys?” Holy crap, Larry, here’s a quarter. Go buy a clue. The young earther declared that the earth was no older than 10,000 years, Deepok Chopra said it was 3.8 billion years old – both are wrong. The young earther also said that before we discovered DNA, there was a lot of belief in evolution but DNA is the “silver bullet” that kills evolution. Wow. Chopra babbled incoherently about “consciousness”, as usual, along with his usual blather about quantum indeterminacy. It was like Crossfire meets a Fellini film.
