Every time I put this video up, You Tube eliminates it. So look quick before it goes away again.
LOL!!! and the tardz shall inherit!!!!
“…Strongest, smartest, fastest…” Frankly, the creationists don’t need this kind of help building strawmen. And I can’t say I’m thrilled with the offensive stereotypes.
Yes, I know it is intended to be funny.
It’s true – I DO live in a sea of idiots!
Why is it eliminated?
They never say why, they just do it.
Let me try commenting a second time, and maybe this one will get through.
The video does not present an accurate view of the Theory of Evolution, to begin with–it claims that natural selection insures that “the strongest, the smartest, the fastest” will out-reproduce others. This, of course, is simply not true, and it is a strawman that anti-evolutionists have latched onto to claim eugenic motives behind those godless Darwinists. Reproductive fitness is not [necessarily] about strength, intelligence, or speed–just ask bacteria. So from that perspective, this is not a helpful video for anyone concerned about teaching Evolution.
Secondly, of course, its use of offensive stereotypes does not do us any favors. Yes, of course, it was meant to be funny. But making fun of lower-IQ individuals does not exactly win friends and influence people. My question would not be “why do they keep taking it down?”, but rather, “why have you been posting it?”
I hope that my first comment was merely lost in your junk bin, and that you did not actively choose to suppress it.
They probably take it down b/c it’s from a movie, Idiocracy. Copyright rules and all that jazz…
