Holy cow, someone posted a link to this video in a comment and you just have to see it. It’s Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort “debunking” evolution in the most hilariously ridiculous thing you may have ever seen. Funniest of all is that they start it out by saying that they’re going to be interviewing people about evolution and you’re supposed to notice how they use words like “possibly” and “we think” and then finally “I’m not an expert”. Why is that funny? Because the people they’re interviewing aren’t experts, they’re just random people they found somewhere, most of whom are as ignorant of evolution as the hosts. But apparently it’s suspicious that random people who know nothing about evolution don’t speak with the certainty of experts or claim to be experts. Well that proves it, I’m convinced. This is a bit like going to an art school and asking them how the internal combustion engine works, edit it down to all the responses where people say things about it based on ignorance, and then saying, “See, it should be obvious that the internal combustion engine is impossible.” 100% pure idiocy.
There are lots of outright lies in the video as well. For instance, they say of Lucy that “nearly all experts agree that Lucy was just the skeleton of a 3 foot tall chimpanzee.” Really? I’d love for them to find just one expert – by which I mean an actual paleo-anthropologist – who claims that Lucy was just a 3 foot tall chimpanzee. They say Neanderthal man was a creature “whose famous skeleton found in France over 50 years ago was that of an old man who suffered from arthritis.” Yes, these people are in fact clueless enough to believe that there is only one fossil of Homo neanderthalensis; in fact, there are dozens of them. I’ll give this video 850 milli-Hovinds on the creationist stupidity scale.
