Go back to sleep, Pat.

Wow.

Ultra-right-wing Conservative and former Baptist minister Pat Robertson, the raddled Kermit the Frog of Christian Broadcasting Network, has still got it. Though whether anyone would want it is very doubtful. Continue reading

“It’s symbolic of his struggle against reality.”

5 Apr

With that in mind, here’s the final serving of Magic Sandwiches to chew over:

Part 10:

Part 11:

(The webpage referred to, exposing the ‘Cretaceous human hand bones’, can be found at the end of this link. Note that even Answers in Genesis, that fount of creationist bullshit, doesn’t agree with PCS on the subject of Cretaceous human fossils. When an organisation founded by the repellant Ken Ham which runs the ridiculous Flintstones Creation ‘Museum’ in Kentucky thinks you’re talking shit, you ought to be hearing alarm bells.)

Part 12:

Part 13:

In summary:

It’s clear that dialogue with someone as fossilised in their dogma as Shawn/VFX/PCS is for all practical purposes impossible. To us it’s a debate; to him it’s an opportunity to preach (he would call it witnessing). And to what end? Thunderf00t, Don, DPRJones and the rest try to educate. If the knowledge they share with us can get just one person to think, to perhaps question the misleading or inaccurate things they may have been told about our world, then they will have added to the sum total of human advancement. All the Shawns of this world want to do is to tell us we’re going to hell. They are just little people with little minds desperate to feel important.

Notice that when asked directly, PCS stated categorically that he rejects evolution outright and nothing can ever change his closed and locked mind. Even if he could be convinced of the reality of evolution and similar physical realities, he would see it simply as confirmation of the power and glory of his pet god. Contrast that with Don’s stating that he would be convinced that evolution would be false if he was presented with poodles from the Permian Era or comparable evidence. Which of the two is the open-minded one?

The icing on the cake was the ‘human handbones in Cretaceous rock’ myth thrown up in response to Don’s request. That illustrates why creationism is nothing but a shell game. Quite why anyone can possibly find such bullshit in the least convincing is one of those mysteries that we may never solve. If we could, we’d be able to inoculate against Time-Share holidays and kindred bottom-feeding parasites. Just remember: only lies require lies to support them. If creationists truly had anything of substance to offer, don’t you think they’d be doing more than posting videos on the internet, or building fake museums and Noah’s Ark amusement parks just so they can line their pockets by exploiting the gullible?

Now it’s just getting sad

The third Magic Sandwich trilogy is now online and I’m starting to think that Shawn, that odious Hovind-larva, is taking the piss. Nobody can be this pig ignorant…

Part 7:

Part 8:

Part 9:

By this point even the non-Shawns on the panel are losing patience. Not for nothing was he christened Posterboy for Creationist Stupidity (PCS) by Thunderf00t in his acclaimed and highly recommended “Why do people laugh at creationists?” series.

Here’s a piece of free advice for you Shawn. Countering any point that shows up the plot holes in your silly story book with “Well I don’t believe that’s true” but never actually backing that statement up doesn’t make you look clever or intelligent, nor does it win the argument for you. It just makes people want to hit you.

Until next time, Shawn: here’s a compass and a map. Reality’s over that way.

Creationists get funnier!

Further to my previous post, parts 4 & 5 of the Magic Sandwich Show are now online [EDIT – Part 6 is up now, too]:

Part 4:

Part 5:

Part 6:

It never ceases to amaze me just how far some people will twist the facts of reality merely to paper over the gaping plot holes in their holy books. When Star Wars or Star Trek fans do it, we laugh and maybe urge them to get out of the house more. Here, Shawn believes the Earth is little more than six thousand years old (because that’s the figure you get when you add up all the ‘begat’s in the bible – which must never be questioned); thus he is forced to distort, corrupt and otherwise ignore all data that contradicts that belief.

To quote the good Doctor, “The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views… which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.”

Creationists are funny!

Yesterday popular BlogTV channel “The Magic Sandwich Show”, perhaps in an attempt to one-up The Atheist Experience last week, hosted the infamous YouTube creationist VenomFangX. The RationalWiki article at the end of that link will give readers unfamiliar with Shawn, as he is also known, a fairly detailed summary of his personality – such as it is – and qualifications. However I can boil it down to one revealing sentence: RW lists the page under the heading “List of internet kooks”.

Anyway, Magic Sandwich has begun uploading the show onto YouTube for those of us who missed the live version. As I write this, the first three parts are available and without wanting to give too much away, Shawn is as knowledgable and as intelligent as he ever wasn’t. Enjoy the show as my YT friend [2012 Edit: and now fellow WordPress blogger] Thunderf00t – upper left corner, named Xavier Lumens for reasons best known to himself – toys with Shawn as a cat does with a mouse.

Evil Golden Globe heretic unrepentant

21 Jan

Ricky Gervais on CNN defends his ‘offensive’ remarks at the recent Golden Globe Awards ceremony in Hollywood (warning – this video contains unhealthy amounts of Piers Morgan):

Apparently the video ends as it does because Moron cuts our hero off at that point and goes to a non-controversial break, returning with a different topic; the YouTuber who uploaded it didn’t think it was relevant to include all that.
