When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school
It’s a wonder I can think at all
I’ll tell you one thing I did NOT learn in high school - I did not learn the correct way to make Evolution Pie. It wasn’t until I was no longer a captive of the public school system and took responsibility for my own education that I learned the really important stuffs. Like how to make a great Evolution Pie.
And now with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I’m going to share this recipe with you:
Combine in one bowl, 6 pounds of Theory, 6 ounces of authoritative-sounding liquified Lies, and 6 tablespoons of powdered Bat Wings.
Mix on high until this has a whipped, loose-stool consistency.
Pour this mixture into a Conjecture Crust and bake at 666 degrees for 151 years.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool, then sprinkle with sugar ‘n’ cinnamon and serve. For a really fancy presentation, you can top the pie with eye of newt.
[Serving suggestion: Evolution Pie goes great with a Cambrian Explosion cocktail – shaken, not stirred, of course!]
The video I’m posting below is something that, under normal circumstances, I would post on my OTHER blog, ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends'. But right now I have something posted near the top of that blog titled “Test Your Voter I.Q.” which I don’t want to see buried under a bunch of other posts too soon.
So, for the moment, “STUFFS” is going to take a slightly different (although not altogether unprecedented) turn.
First, I want to publicly thank my brother Mr. VizFact for making me aware of this video by posting it on his own blog. Although Viz and I might not exactly look like we’re related, the fact that his Father and my Father is one and the same Father (capital "F") means we are indeed “brothers”.
So, when Mr. VizFact’s most recent video posting - “100 Reasons Why Evolution is Stupid” by Kent Hovind - showed up on my Blogger dashboard I checked it out and, dang, was I entertained!
Hovind’s dry wit and rapid-fire ridiculing of Evolution’s pseudo-scientists made me GOL (Guffaw Out Loud) more times than I can count. God knows I loves me a smart smart-aleck . . . as Kent Hovind is. Oh, yeah, Hovind is a man after my own
I have only one negative remark to make about this presentation:
Mr. Hovind – to steal a question asked by Cheech Marin in the comedy sketch ‘Sergeant Stadanko’ - "Who cut your hair?”
Yeah, I’m afraid Dr. Hovind has "Christian Hair", more commonly known as “Helmet Hair”. I don’t know if there’s anything more damaging to the reputation of Born Again Christians than their hairstyles.
But . . . I’d be afraid to say anything like this directly to Mr. Hovind because, if this presentation is any indication, he’d probably kick my arse and take my nickel for milk in a knock-down, drag-out, roll-around-in-the-gutter contest of schoolyard insults. In other words, despite cutting my taunting teeth and honing my ad hominem debating tactics while fighting for years against Commies and other loony Leftists over the Senator Joseph McCarthy issue, I’d be a-skeered of trying to mix it up with Mr. Hovind. That ‘Christian Hair’ Cat’s got game!
I’ve done quite a bit of reading on the Evolution/Intelligent Design debate, and I gotta tell ya, when Kent Hovind calls Evolutionary Theory “stupid” he’s being “Christian-y kind” because, truth is, it’s even dumber’n that – it’s retarded!
For sure, ‘Evolutionary Theory’ is nothing more than a cockamamie fairy tale for adults intent on fooling themselves into beLIEving they have no Creator that they’ll ultimately have to answer to. It’s NOT “science” and it’s NOT for intellectually honest objective thinkers!
Two books on this subject that I particularly enjoyed were . . .
THE CASE FOR A CREATOR: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God
By Lee Strobel
TORNADO IN A JUNKYARD: The Relentless Myth Of Darwinism
By James Perloff
Another one I certainly found informative was . . .
THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO DARWINISM AND INTELLIGENT DESIGN
By Jonathan Wells, Ph.D.
And if you want to really get on down with yer bad self and investigate some serious science - deep, technical, nitty-gritty stuffs - then don’t miss reading this 600-page tome:
SIGNATURE IN THE CELL: DNA And The Evidence For Intelligent Design
By Dr. Stephen C. Meyer
Obviously there’s a whole lot more to know than what is presented in Kent Hovind’s nearly two-hour video program. Nevertheless, there were a couple of points made in the video that I don’t even recall having encountered in all my book ‘n’ article readings on the subject.
And Kent Hovind’s humorous, fast-talking, “nicely smart-alecky” demeanor alone makes this worth watching. What could be better than laughing while you’re learning? (Although Hovind and I do not see eye-to-eye on all of our Biblical interpretations, I still enjoyed his little bit of Christian proselytizing at the very end of the video presentation; even THAT was funny!)
Here it is – laugh 'n' learn:

Incidentally, Mr. VizFact posts some good stuffs and sometimes adds some humorous, smart-alecky commentary of his own, so you really should sign up to “Follow” his blog too. Here’s a link . . .
YE OLDE COMMENT POLICY: All comments, pro and con, are welcome. However, ad hominem attacks and disrespectful epithets will not be tolerated (read: "posted"). After all, this isn’t Amazon.com, so I don’t have to put up with that kind of bovine excrement.
