It’s kind of amazing in a way to see creationism articulated *even more superficially * than it is by professional creationist outlets like ICR. Evidently this article’s the first in a series; I hope Pat is able to maintain the level of ironclad rhetoric that he demonstrates with the potato chip analogy.
Honestly, it’s probably a good thing Pat’s on the side of creationism, because I hate to imagine him trying to defend evolution.
The ads on WorldNetDaily are like a slideshow of my uncle’s mind, except with less profanity.
Poor Pat. I will have forgotten his legacy as a mediocre crooner of inconsequential pablum. His new legacy is creationist fucktard who can’t properly regurgitate antiscientific babble. He’s old though. Looking back I guess Terrifel said the same thing.
Wasn’t his daughter sort of hot about 30 years ago?
I’ve despised him ever since I heard him (try to) sing Hearts of Stone back in the 1950s. I think his daughter had a hit with You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings although that might have been the refrain and not the actual title.
How could anyone ook at the fossil record and say this?
Well, it’s obvious. That person did not, in fact, look at the fossil record. There are dozens and dozens of “intermediate” species in the fossil record. Hell, the human lineage is one of the best examples out there.
“Apes have always been apes” is an absurd statement on the face of it. An ape is whatever we define it to be. Many of the extinct species that we call “apes” would not look much like an ape to anyone alive today. We put them in that category because they fit there by some definition, not because they are obviously in that category instead of being in the category we call “monkey”.
