Expelled: Creationist’s Wacky Web Site for ID

If you want some real fun check this post out and link from my fundamentalist friend Tom. This Creationist site is off the wall and really, I get my best material from the fundamentalists in the audience:
I just prayed for you.

Check this out if you want to win $10,000.00

http://www.intelligentdesignversusevolution.com/

Some excerpts from this site:

  • God Doesn’t Believe in Atheists
  • Contrary to popular opinion, the existence of God can be proven
  • Scientific Facts from the Bible: Shows the scientific facts that existed in the Bible long before “science” became aware of them. (Nothing like going to a two thousand year old book to get the latest scientific information, huh?)
  • And the classic “Win $10,000 for the proof of evolution”. Thank god the entry is free. Read such classic arguments as “Just as a building is absolute proof there was a builder (no building ever built itself), creation is absolute proof there is a Creator.” Ouch, you got me there! I surrender.
  • And the ever popular, “The more scientists have searched for the transitional forms that lie between species, the more they have been frustrated.” Newsweek, November 3, 1980. I guess the two legged snake doesn’t cut the mustard for the creationists anymore. Incredible Fossil Two-Legged Snake Link

Come on Tom, tell me this as a joke, right? This Creationist site has so much going on it reminds of Homer’s web site on an old Simpson’s episode where all he did was to steal other site’s clip art and place them on his own site. $10 grand to prove evolution; what is this the Price is Right? A truly craptacular site and like they say you can’t make this stuff up! Not to be missed by any aficionado of camp.

    The $10,000 Offer:
    A transitional form (or missing link) is an example of one species “evolving” into another species. Excited scientists thought they had found one when they discovered “Archaeopteryx.” The fossil led to the theory that the dinosaurs did not become extinct, but rather all turned into birds. The Field Museum in Chicago displayed what was believed to be an archaeopteryx fossil on October 4-19, 1997. It was hailed as “Archaeopteryx: The Bird That Rocked the World.” However, Dr. Alan Feduccia (evolutionary biologist at the University of North Carolina), said, “Paleontologists have tried to turn Archaeopteryx into an earth-bound, feathered dinosaur. But it’s not. It is a bird, a perching bird. And no amount of ‘paleo-babble’ is going to change that.” [Science, February 5, 1993]. So here’s my challenge: I will give $10,000 to the first person who can prove to me that they have found a genuine living transitional form (a lizard that produced a bird, or a dog that produced kittens, or a sheep that produced a chicken, or even as Archaeopteryx—a dinosaur that produced a bird). Species do not cross, no matter how long you leave them. The whole of creation is proof that evolution is truly “a fairytale for grownups.”

    Wow, Ray Comfort’s understanding is waaaaaaaaay off base. But then again, I shouldn’t expect much from creationists.

    You know I was about to give up on this blog and concentrate on finishing off my novel but then something this blatantly stupid and outrageous comes along to reinvigorate the fight in me. I don’t know where to begin but you know I will. Unbelievable, that is all I have to say about the ignorance regarding basic biology that is displayed in this argument. Come to think of it, I would love to hear a fundamentalist describe how a present ecological community works without using the mechanisms of evolution and survival of the fittest as the driving forces. That would be an amusing exercise. SO this is the crap you want to teach your kids?
