Wheee! Look at this slick new game. Doesn’t it look fun to play?

It’s even educational!

“Intelligent Design vs Evolution” is unique in that the playing pieces are small rubber brains and each team plays for “brain” cards. Each player uses his or her brains to get more brains, and the team with the most brains wins. It has been designed to make people think … and that’s exactly what it does.

Errm, until you look more closely at who puts it out: Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron. You know, the insane guys with the banana. And then you read the testimonial:

“Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron are doing much more than revealing the bankruptcy of molecules-to-man evolution. They have a greater purpose: proclaiming biblical authority and reaching the lost with the precious gospel message. Enjoy this wonderful family game as you also become better equipped to defend our precious Christian faith.” — Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis.

I don’t think this is one of those games designed to reward you for getting the right answer—it’s one you should be proud to lose.

    Right, I’ll rush right out and buy a copy to go with that nasty Left Behind kill people with Muslim sounding names games…

    Off topic, but I was just reading the introduction to “The God Delusion” and I was wondering if anyone else got as nitpicky as I did when I read the “no Taliban to blow up ancient statues”… I realize that Dawkins is talking in the present tense (what would happen if religion disappeared now), but if there was no religion or god(s) then those statues wouldn’t even exist in the first place. If there was no Hinduism, the Buddha would not have been able to reject Hinduism as a spiritual path and forge what became the religion/philosophy that gave us those statues in the first place.
