I beat topics into the ground. I know it. I can't help myself. Attacks on science by the ignorant is a common theme. I do my best not to over indulge.
But... I have no choice. You see.. so people are so stupid they literally kill off brain cells when they speak. They don't even have the good sense to only kill their own cells. Everyone that hears them ends up... a little dumber for having heard the words.
For example... David Klinghoffer. He has an idea that evolution is false. That instead of that well founded theory, we must accept that God designed us. Not uncommon. Not a danger to the brains of the nearby.
But then he goes a little further. He says that if there was no God behind it all, than evolution would have produced hideous things. Ok, first off, it has produced some pretty grotesque things, but I'll let that slide. You see, then he goes further. He gives an EXAMPLE.
He said that without God directing evolution, nature would have evolved... CTHULHU.
Take your time to process that but not too long. I seriously believe thinking about that for too long could cause aneurysms.
Better? Good. Now you probably have questions. So do I. Klinghoffer offers no answers. I don't know what Cthulhu would have evolved from. I don't know why nature would have evolved a Great Old One if left to its own devices. I don't know how removal of the Christian God leads to an Lovecraftian nightmare.
I just don't know. But I'm fairly sure that regardless of your side of the evolution debate... this guy is 2 scoops short of a box of Raisin Bran.
