I guess it would take too much personal insight for minister/broadcaster Bob Enyart to name his show "Anti Science Friday."

There is no point in trying to reason with people like this at all.

I would like to remind people of the Klan/Neo-Nazi rally recently where there was a counter-protest by clowns. That's what we need here too: just a big-ass point-and-laugh session whenever anyone like this starts talking.

I like that in their tagline, Real Science Friday declares that it's Science Friday that is the parody. Way to destroy your only possible line of defense.

They hate the implications of actual science, but always strive to emulate it in order to steal its authenticity.

That because to these whack jobs it is a scientific fact that the planet (if not the whole universe) is 6,000 years old. They'll throw any old bollocks out to support their misguided thinking as well up to and including ignoring the PR statements put out by the head of their religion: the pope.

Of course suing him in to oblivion equally gives this bozo the upper hand as he can now play the 'repressed minority' card and call all his derpy friends in to defend him.

We're done here. Post ponies.

I felt like I was being too derptastic bringing this sort of thing up in another thread, but here we are.

Ahh the "No you!" defence. It's their "go to" argument.

Next time that happens, the clowns also need to have bullhorns to loudly point this out:

Professional creationists steal stuff because they are dishonest, criminal scum. It's certainly not news to anyone who has been paying attention to them.

they're both equally full of bullshiat anyway...

I'm no fan of the RCC either but these people have hated and mistrusted the pope since ....well, since at least the 19th century.....

They didn't like Catholics in the 1800's...
Not that big on them today either... 

Not to mention, Catholics have been ok with evoloution since the 1950's...
Aliens are welcome in the Catholic Church.....

They may be a bit crazy, but I'll take the Catholic brand of crazy over fundamentalist christian crazy any day of the week....

These guys never seem to have a problem with using their cell phones or radios or medicines or cars or televisions. When science produces those things it's okay.

Real Ultimate Power Science!

Facts:

1. Scientists are mammals.
2. Scientists experiment ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the scientist is to flip out and inform people.

That is because the scientific fields that produced those are not giant hundred year old, atheist conspiracies designed to undermine God.

There is a lot of secret stuff that goes on when a person enters the world of evolutionary study, (or related fields). For the last 100 years or so, anyone who has studied in the following fields(to name a few) has had to take a vow of silence in case they find out about the "big lie" :

-Biology (cell biology, population biology, theoretical biology, developmental biology, microbiology, etc)
-Paleontology
-Zoology
-Ornithology
-Herpetology
-Genetics
-Epidemiology

There are also similar fields of study that have a vow not to let certain things "out of the bag" like geology and earth science, so as to appear to be in agreement on important points. You know, all the stuff academics are keeping from you.

Oh, PLEASE DO enlighten us mere mortals about this massive conspiracy that all the elite scientists in the world are keeping secret from the masses.

Or, alternatively, you can admit that you are just a giant fruitbat who is talking out of his ass.

Don't even bother. It's like arguing history with one of the "secret societies/hollow earth/aliens invented everything" conspiracy nuts. Ran into one living in my building during the blackout from Hurricane Sandy. Had a hard time keeping my brain from coming out of my ears and running away from the stupid.

I did as well. Poe's Law does does come into creationist threads a lot but that one had some well crafted humor.

That's real science, though! Plus you're wrong about medicine. People believe some retarded shiat about medicine and implicitly distrust doctors and hospitals.
