Creationism IV

You can read the introductory post to this series here.

 

The Crocoduck.

 

 I feel beyond embarrassed that I am the same species as Kirk Cameron. 

Yes, Kirk Cameron, you are correct that no evolutionist has ever found a fossil of such a thing. But that is because we know they don’t exist. So, no, no one is looking for them you stupid, stupid asshole.

Kirk shows willfull ignorance, and I have no toleration for it. I understand if one does not know because one has not had the opportunity to learn. But, I do not understand having the opportunity to learn and refusing to do so, all the while, vomiting such stupid fucking ignorance.

No one is looking for a god damn crocoduck. And if you took the time to learn anything about evolution, you’d fucking know that. 

No evolutionist anywhere suggests that the top half of a species changes into a different species while the bottom half remains the same. Does this fucking idiot think that evolutionists claim that the change happens from the top of the animal and slowly moves its way down? 

God fucking damn. 

Species evolve very slowly over time, and the changes certainly don’t go in the order of “head first, then, neck, then chest…” and so forth. And the changes do not occur nearly so dramatically as a duck changing directly into a crocodile. It doesn’t work that way. And no one claims that it does. 

It is important to remember that evolution is not a linear process. It branches. You can better understand why by reading this.

Kirk claims scientists have discovered no transitional fossils because he doesn’t understand what the term transitional fossil means. But, people that do not know any better hear his outrageous claims and cheer him on like a giant orgasm of idiocy. A transitional fossil does not mean a fossil with the head of one species and the body of a different, very distantly related species. And anyone that thinks so is a fucking idiot.

Real transitional fossils do indeed exist in spite of the absence of Kirk’s imaginary fairy land fossils. 

You can see real transitional fossils that Kirk claims do not exist hereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehere, and here. Of course, there are MANY more you could read about, but I don’t have the time nor the desire to sit here for the next 7 days doing nothing but hyperlinking web pages. But, you get the point.

In fact, transitional fossils provide a means of testing various aspects of evolutionary theory. For example, if scientists develop a branch of the evolutionary tree and want to test whether they have constructed it correctly, one way to do so is to predict an area and time period that a transitional fossil would lie if the branch is correct. They can then use that prediction to form a hypothesis and then, try to find the fossil in the area they predicted. If they find it, which has happened, the hypothesis is supported. They can combine this with other ways of testing an evolutionary branch to determine if the branch is likely correct or if it requires alterations.

I cannot think of any excuse for this kind of willful, moronic understanding of the world. I am quite sure that Kirk Cameron has the finances available to have a computer and internet access right in his very own home. With so much information available at his fingertips, he has no excuse for running around making ridiculous, outrageously idiotic claims about a scientific theory he does not know shit about. 

If you refuse to take the time to learn about an idea, you have not earned the right to have your refutations of that idea taken seriously. Go hang that picture of your fucking crocoduck on your living room wall at home, Kirk, so you can make daily announcements about both your laziness and your unwillingness to learn about something before adding your own idiotic commentary on the matter. Way to be anti-education and to use your fame to lead others down the path of non-education.

  1. The Bible will always trump anything science has to offer. Being an ex-Fundie, I’m surprised you don’t know that! Some of the most ridiculous stories come out of the Bible – creationism and the Noah’s Ark and earth created in just seven days among them – but Christians are told they have to believe it 100% or 0%. So they go by their blind faith and believe it completely.

    Then, when you challenge them on it, it’s like you are personally insulting them. So its a no win.

      1. It is ridiculous. But it’s hard to break out of that mindset of being spoon fed, especially when it may be all you’ve ever known, and not have been taught to think for yourself. Trying to change your entire world and spiritual view takes a lot of time, but it does indeed start with them wanting to learn and educate themselves. And most aren’t willing to do that because they will stick with what works for them.
