Conservababes Pix #2: Literacy Fail

[I’m on vacation right now, so here is a quick post I wrote in advance. Feel free to discuss it among yourselves.]

This week we’re looking at the laughably-bad anti-science gallery at Conservababes. I found a couple of images that scream “stupid” louder than most. What is one of the most common characteristics of creationists (at least the ones who post on the internet)? That’s right. They’re illiterate.

Take a look at these examples. They’re both trying to make fun of the predominant abiogenesis hypothesis among scientists. First is the Miller–Urey experiment:

Walla Walla

(Isn’t that in Washington state?)

The second is, I guess, the Miller-Campbell experiment:

Soup for brains, you mean

If you ask me, too much lightening was applied to the image.

How do you make pictures this bad? It’s easy! Just take some fundie science denialism, sprinkle in some total ignorance, add one banana and some “lightening”, and voilà: you’re a retard!

[Come back tomorrow for some more great images from Conservababes!]

    “Walla?” I’ve seen voila mispelled numerous times (usually viola), but never phonetically with a “W.” That’s excellent!

  2. Robert Madewell Says:

    I think it’s funny that they depict a stork carrying a baby as the beginnings of life. Another fail?

    The voila fail is really funny.

  3. Ron Britton Says:

    I think the stork with baby is symbolic of a magical beginning, which is what they’re trying to imply.

    I went over there and took a quick look through their forum. One of these brain trusts, who describes himself as a “Super Patriot” but gives his location as North Mexico (how does that work?), and lists his belief as “Liberals don’t have a clue!”, includes this in his signature:

    What’s the difference between Sarah Palin naked and Michelle O’Bama naked? Playboy and National Geographic!

    There are simply no words to describe how utterly execrable these miserable excuses for human beings are. You know my solution.

    What disappoints me is that in my brief perusal of the site was that I didn’t see any pictures of actual babes. 🙁

    Of course nit-picking about spelling is exactly the kind of thing elite ivy league liberals would do in trying to steal god given freedoms from real Americans.

  7. Syldoran Says:

    I certainly hope you’re kidding, Thomas.

    While normally light typos don’t bother me that much, you would think they’d be a little more careful with what they’re spelling when they’re trying to make the scientist guys look bad. Kinda backfires when you can’t even be literate.

    The only thing I can even begin to remotely connect “walla” with would be Walla Walla of my Washington. We have a maximum-security prison there and a song written about it. Aside from the song, think there is a connection, or one should be made, between the prison and fundies?

    So, pointing out stupidity = taking away your God-given (of course) freedom. Ergo, we are “fake” Americans.

    Just checking.

    Well if he’s from North Mexico, your solution doesn’t help. 😉

    Good point!

    @Jeff: calm down. If you took a look at Thomas’s website, you’d see his comment is sarcastic.

    I thought about saying something myself, but checked him out first. Didn’t see a need to respond after that.

    Of course, an appropriate emoticon would have gone a long way to saving both of us the trouble. 😉

    I was and am perfectly calm.

    Except when fundies vote.
