Stupidest anti-evolution argument yet

Turkey: Creationist bampots are rather active in allegedly secular Turkey, and they have an Islamic flavour. Adnan Oktar, author of the notorious Atlas of Creation is apparently banged up for creating an illegal organisation for personal gain and making threats, so it's up to his cronies to fly the creationist flag. And they are even more lacking in basic science, even though one of them is a brain surgeon! A correspondent for soL, a Turkish left-wing news portal, watched the TV debate and reports:

During the TV show, Dr. Oktar Babuna and Cihat Gündoğdu tried to disprove arguments of the scientists...

They called in the question which evolution created angel and daemon, how felicities in the heaven evolved, how the snake came into existence out of the baton as well as the bird out of mud. The creationists tried to disprove evolution theory with these questions.

They did not address how other similar creatures, such as invisible pink unicorns, cast doubt on evolutionary theory.

"Well then, how did angels evolve?"soL, 16th August 2009.

The evolution of angels? Wow - this idea is so barking that it didn't even get a mention in 'The God Delusion', and that is saying something!

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.
