Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Bryan Fischer Debunks Evolution

Of all the people lately taking a stab at disproving evolution, Bryan Fischer makes the most idiotic attempt. It’s so bad there’s little point in even answering it point by point. I’ll let the commenters have a go at it just for fun.

    Oldie but goodie regarding the second law:

    One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn’t possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.

    Here.

    The biggest problem with this is that fundies can’t recognize the distinction between ‘order in a system’ and ‘total energy in a system’.

    OK, while I’m at it:

    Point 1: Not an evolutionary question.
    Point 2: See above.
    Point 3: The fossil record is notoriously incomplete. It’s hard to get things to fossilize. That said, there are transitional fossils. This one, for instance.
    Point 4: A lie. Mutations are not invariably harmful. Here and here.
