ARE you a creationist?  Matt Stopera at Buzzfeed invited creationists at a debate between Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy‘ and Creation Museum founder Ken Ham to write questions for those who believe in evolution. They would then pose for the cameras behind their questions. Answers were soon on their way.

No-one changes their views in these debates. They are all about shoring up your own prejudices. With the fish in the barrel,  Beth Spencer of Lawyers, Guns, and Money aimed her harpoon:



Q: What mechanism has science discovered that evidences an increase of genetic information seen in any genetic mutation or evolutionary process?


fear 9

Spencer: What?



Q: If we come from monkeys then why are there still monkeys?

fear 12


Spencer: Because all this poo isn’t going to fling itself and creationists tire easily.



Q: Why do evolutionists/secularists/humanists/non-god-believing people reject the idea of their [sic] being a creator god but embrace the concept of intelligent design from aliens or other extra-terrestrial sources?

fear 13


Spencer: They don’t. Next question.



Q: How can you look at the world and not believe someone created/thought of it? It’s amazing!

fear 11

Spencer: No, perky lady, the word you’re looking for is “amazeballs.” Please re-write your sign.

Q: How do you explain the sunset if their [sic] is no god?

fear 3

Spencer: If you get to credit god with sunsets, can I finally get everybody to admit that Satan created the raisin? I look at raisins and I am certain THERE IS NO GOD.
Q: Are you scared of a Divine Creator?



Spencer: Yes. John Waters is terrifying.


And a few you missed. ANd  – no – they are not actors in parody nor agents booked by evolutionist to make creationist look mentally negligible:

  fear 7

fear 6    fear 1

Evolution under attack: Creationist angers Lord God Almighty

Doctor Monty White, a lead figure in the creationism and intelligent design movement in Britain, looks at a map inside his warehouse in Leicester, England, Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2008, which is marked in places where his group has spoken in churches across the country. The Doctor is the head of a UK group called 'Answers in Genesis', which has links to a prominent US group of the same name, and sells DVD's pamphlets and books promoting the movement.

THE phrase “creation scientist” is as oxymoronic as “athletic quadriplegic” or “Nazi racial-equality advocate”– if the first part applies to you then the second by definition cannot. And Ken Ham, who heads the Answers in Genesis foundation and Kentucky’s Creation Museum (thus making him one of America’s foremost “creation scientists”), basically admitted as much last week in a radio ad pointing out that godless concepts like logic and science cannot prove the alleged falsehood of evolution; only unquestioning religious faith does that.

“We have solid proof in our hands that evolution is a lie: the Bible,” Ham explained. “You see, we can’t depend solely on our reasoning ability to convince skeptics. We present the evidence and do the best we can to convince people the truth of God by always pointing them to the Bible.”

Why Early Christians Ate Dinosaurs explains why dinosaurs died out, and Christians did not:

When did animals begin to kill and eat other animals?

Animal Hunter After the Flood, God gave people official permission to kill animals for food and eat them. Man could now eat everything, green plants and animals (Genesis 9:2,3). This means that people from Noah’s family could have eaten dinosaurs, if they tasted good.

Madeleine McCann And The Dawn Of Creationism

MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

In the beginning was the word. And the word was “Maddie”…

THE INDEPENDENT: “Religion vs science: can the divide between God and rationality be reconciled?”

And on the eighth day the media was created and Our Maddie did come to the fore…

‘A clergyman in charge of education for the country’s leading scientific organisation – it’s a Monty Python sketch,” pronounced Britain’s top atheist, Richard Dawkins, recently. The problem was that Reiss, as well as being an evolutionary biologist and population geneticist, is a non-stipendiary priest in the Church of England.

Still dunno.
