These things don't exist, and the ones that do exist were created by god

So the Nobel prize-winning scientist, Kirk Cameron, was explaining to the audience that science doesn't have any transitional fossils to support evolution of species by natural selection. A somewhat suspicious claim, but we'll take it on his great authority as a man of science who is an expert on the issue.

No more sarcasm.

This video, which joins the debate in progress, begins with Kirk showing some pictures of things that would qualify as transitional forms, according to his terrible misunderstanding of evolution. The problem for the purposes of this post is not his misunderstanding of evolution (which I'll tackle in another post another time), but the logical path he takes from there. He says that no animal is found in nature that crosses features specific to two distinct kinds of animals. But then there's something else..... See if you can spot the logical failure.

You only have to watch the first minute of the video, but he does continue.



Did you catch it?! Did you?! First he says that none of these forms actually exist in nature, but then immediately cites an example of one which does conform to his misunderstanding of evolution, the platypus. He then immediately and calmly dismisses that animal by saying that god made it that way, and it therefore proves nothing.

KIRK, YOU STUPID TWAT! THIS IS WHY NOBODY TAKES YOU OR YOUR CREATIONIST FUCKWIT CLAN SERIOUSLY! HOW CAN ANYBODY POSSIBLY ENGAGE YOU IN DEBATE IF YOU'RE GOING TO SAY THAT THINGS AREN'T THIS WAY, AND IF ANYBODY PROVIDES EVIDENCE THAT THEY ARE, YOU JUST ASSERT THAT GOD DID IT THAT WAY? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? DIDN'T THEY HAVE A FUCKING HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER ON THE SET OF GROWING PAINS TO PROVIDE AN EDUCATION FOR YOU AND TRACEY*? AS LONG AS YOU AND THE OTHER SHIT-FOR-BRAINS CREATIONISTS CONTINUE TO LIVE IN THIS FANTASY WORLD WITH BLINDERS ON TO ALL OF REALITY AND TO ALL EVIDENCE, SCIENCE CANNOT AND WILL NOT ENGAGE YOU IN SERIOUS DEBATE!

*No offense is meant to Tracey Gold, who I have no reason to believe is a creationist, and may actually have a high school education.

You would think the Kirk and Ray show would have learned their lesson from their banana debacle. They just don't know when to quit.

According to this, Kirk got at best a sketchy HS education before falling into the clutches of Ray Comfort.
