    A new creationist movie is coming out on evolution. The trailer is one face palming PRATT after another.

    Should we break down the claims one at time?

    Good grief! Stupid beyond belief. Yet people fall for these asinine remarks and bogus claims because they don't know any better, and often don't care to. I loved the off-the-wall pot shot at Charles Darwin that he was a racist, which what; makes his work untrustworthy? OF COURSE IT DOES. And if Darwin is untrustworthy because he's a racist (which he wasn't) then how can evolution be true? Answer me that mister smart guy. :mad:

    And how do we know that he was a racist? By the full title of his seminal work:

    " On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life"

    Check mate atheists!!:rolleyes:

    I always SMH when these types pooh-pooh any science while staring into a high tech digital camera capable of broadcasting their spiel to every corner of the globe. I guess some science is better than others.

    Yeah! Wasn't that a great piece of creationist reasoning for you. Not that he necessarily believes it, but there's always the chance the rubes will buy it, and that's what's important. Lying for the Lord's greater glory is always justified. (you heard it first here on RF at 5:35 EDT, 9/5/18).

    Right. No god is worthy of Godship unless he's willing to conform to one's beliefs.

    If man created God in man's own image then man would be living by the Golden Rule.
    Since man does Not live by the Golden Rule (otherwise there would be No wars) then God is Not created in man's image.

    Sorry, your logic is faulty. Your conclusion is not justified by your premise.

    As one who has read and been part of all sort of refutations of creationism and anti-evolution speech, watching the video almost felt like it was a big joke on creationists - I kept waiting for that moment when it turned around.

    Interesting how they feel this works for their argument when it leaves them sounding so ignorant and blatantly biased against the material for completely non-scientific reasons (e.g. "Darwin was a racist" and "... not wanting to believe the creator to keep up with their hedonistic lifestyles). That Matt Powell that made an appearance is a particularly nasty character I've seen in other material. Very vitriolic and completely ignorant.

    I am amazed that Kent Hovind, convicted tax cheat and liar has any credibility with other creationists.

    If creationists believed in predestination they'd have a formidable position, but they can't. :)

    I'm not going to watch the video. I just finished eating and I want to keep my food down.

    The first quote is very good at least.
    "Spontaneous generation MUST BE TRUE. Not because it had been proven in the laboratory: but because otherwise it would be necessary to believe in a creation (Ernst Haeckel)

    Because to believe in Creation, you need a Creator. The Creator is not created. So that must be "spontaneous generation", ergo "spontaneous generation" is true.

    Think of it as a sit-com. With B-actors. You would not be very wrong if you took that approach.
