Pokemon Prove Evolutionism Is False

The same folk responsible for the parody fundie article railing against the evils of Apple Computer have apparently struck gold again, although all the links now redirect to a page of unrelated advertising, so I'll just have to take the word of the blogosphere. OBJECTIVE: Christian Ministries have come up with an article detailing a Fellowship Baptist Creation Science Fair. Henry Farrell of Crooked Timber quotes some of his favourite bits:

My Uncle Is A Man Named Steve (Not A Monkey). Cassidy Turnbull presented her uncle, Steve. She also showed photographs of monkeys and invited fairgoers to note the differences between her uncle and the monkeys. She tried to feed her uncle bananas, but he declined to eat them. Cassidy has conclusively shown that her uncle is no monkey. (Elementary School level, first Prize).

He got it from Ezra Klein of Not Geniuses, who seemed to be taken in by it, but quoted this delightful piece:

Women Were Designed For Homemaking. Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.

The same fundy loons who think Apple is evil, seem to think Pokemon disproves evolution. How do these people come up with this crap? What drugs do they take or do they need drugs?... Read More


also, most of our strength is in our lower bodies, instead of upper bodies, like men- we're designed for serious buttkicking.

What absolute codswallop. Everyone knows that girlies swoon at the sight of dials and buttons, and therefore cannot be trusted to operate a microwave, let alone a washing machine. As for dealing with hot things, only men are capable of pushing burning irons around. Equally, vacuum cleaners are usually far too heavy for mere girls.

No, women need to do easy stuff like office work where they can use their pretty little heads to plan nice corporate takeovers. Bless them.

I keep trying to convince Charlie of this, but the only thing he will accept is my natural talent for blowing up the espresso machine.

I really wish i could see that pokemon report. i think they're evil to not make a link to that project. it must be frikkin hilarious

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
