I'm trying to figure out if this guy is being deliberatly obtuse or if he really thinks that scientists present evolution as a concious decision to "suck in" legs and sprout fins?

I'm voting for deliberatly obtuse, myself.

Because the alternative frightens me.

 

I love how he's so indignant about the evilutionists saying that the waters brought forth life...and then reads the Bible verse about how the waters brought forth life.  And then talks about how the scientists are contradicting the Bible.

Is it bad to think that's funny?

 

Scientist:  "And the waters brought forth life..."

Bible-basher"  "And GOD SAID "let the waters bring forth life..."

Scientist:  "Uh...the waters brought forth life and..."

Bible-basher:  "GOD SAID let the waters bring forth life!"

Scientist:  "Um...sorry, but I see the waters, and I've got a lot of information about waters and how they work, and I see life, and I've got a lot of information about how life works but the whole God thing is lacking concrete data so..."

Bible Basher (bashing Bible):  "It's all in HERE!"

Scientist:  "Oh I see."  (takes Bible, opens it)  put your face in the book..."

Babylon Five fans can guess what comes next.  :)

Am I the only one who finds a certain irony in this ol boys use of the word ginormous? Or the way he tosses out the word "magically" to slam a scientific theory while in the same breath saying "The invisible man in the sky made it all happen." ?

Not slamming Christianity. Most of the best people I know are Christians (coughcoughLhotkascough) but I just have this image in my head of Jesus showing up on this guys door saying "My son, I need you to do me a favor." "Anything Lord! I'm your servant!" (out comes a lovingly crafted clue-by-four. Remember kids, before he got into the messiah business Jesus was a carpenter. Hmmm kinda like Harrison Ford that way if you think about it.) B O N G!!! "Shut up already! I've got enough credibility problems these days as it is without the likes of you screwing it up for me ya jerk!"

So...

"We're supposed to believe the Bible's fallible, but these scientists here, they're they're not fallible..."

I'm trying to remember when it was that scientists claimed to not be fallible.

I don't get people who insist on not "evolving" in any way, be it changing theories or not "staying the course". If you've got a good thing going but realize that you've moved off towards a dead-end, then it only makes sense to change your approach. If you find your excellent steak to be poisoned, then you don't need to stop eating steak, but I would hope that you would stop eating that particular poisoned steak!
