We’ve had a few of these leave comments around here in the last few weeks.

How to argue like a jackass.

    Hey, that looks familiar! I’m the guy who drew it.

    It’s cool, though. I’m not really proud of my early art, but if people want to pass these old comics around, that’s cool. Have a good day!

  2. Jeremy White Says:

    Hahahaha! That’s awesome.
    Mr. Neil, whether or not you’re proud of the art, it’s hilarious. Well done.

    I love it! Especially the bananas!

  4. Parrotlover77 Says:

    I second that! Was the banana chosen as a prop because of the fundie belief that the banana was “designed” to fit in our hand to be eaten, or was that just random?

    Mr. Neil, as “unproud” as you may be, this comic is hillarious and, I think, the drawing is great!

  5. Kevin Wirth Says:

    Yes, the illustration is well done.

    Too bad it fails to address the more serious issue, however, which is the common claim found in most biology textbooks that life just somehow suddenly jumpstarted on this planet and evolution took off from there. TWhile the origin of life IS a separate issue from evolution, there is no question that explaining it adequately IS a problem. And without that explanation, evolution IS left hanging by its own pitard. That’s because evolution requires the naturalistic origin of life as a prerequisite before it can even be considered valid.

    So, while your cartoon is somewhat humorous (I could easily re-create it using an evolutionist as the main character…) – it really does little to advance a discusison of the issue.

    Ahh, Mr. Wirth, you’ve returned to us offering more creationist gibberish. Since you reject outright the idea of life arising spontaneously without the aid of some outside agency, what, specifically, is the agency responsible for the origin of life and the changes that have occurred over time? Is it space aliens? Are we all just part of a fantastically complex computer program, and everything is only an illusion? Or, did God do it? Well, of course you think God did it. Like putting a pig in a tuxedo, you and your friends attempt to sneak your blatantly religious ideas into science classrooms by cloaking it with scientific jargon. Well, I’m calling “bullshit”. Unless you are willing to accept other possible explanations for how “design” occurs, besides God, you are a deluded fundie and whatever knowledge of science you possess is tertiary, at best.

    You make the common mistake of looking for gaps in the body of knowledge accumulated over the past 150 years, and wherever you find one you gleefully pounce on it, point your finger at it and stick out your tongue, claiming victory. My five year old son argues better than that. Now, if you can produce some bit of extraordinary contrarian evidence, like, in the words of J.B.S. Haldane, a fossil of “a bunny in the Precambrian”, then you’d be on to something. But you’re not, and you never will be. You have chosen to eschew reason in favor of irrational ignorance, and are therefore incapable of advancing anything resembling a cogent, coherent argument here or elsewhere. But, what the hell, at least you’re entertaining. Keep ’em coming.

    Kevin, if you feel the textbook is lacking, then that is where sunday school begins, right? So why try to take more stuff out of the textbook? Sounds like you have plenty of room for evolution + god-spark-of-life already. I just don’t get it. Don’t you want humanity to progress? Plenty of people believe in evolution AND god.

  8. Ron Britton Says:

    The crackpot has returned to spew more of his disinformationist vile! Yes, Kevin, tell us all how evolution must be a fantasy, because the entirely separate question of the origin of life is still being figured out.

    Your logic is appalling. Everything that has ever been learned about the world in the last eight millennia or so has proven to be naturalistic. No supernatural explanations have ever been shown to be in operation. That includes everything we know about evolution. So now, all of a sudden, you want us to believe that the Magic Man done it? And because the origin of life requires your Magic Man, that makes evolution bogus? The only thing bogus around here is your grasp of reality.

    BTW, I’m putting you on notice. If you ever post another comment around here that contains your famous quote mining, the entire comment will be deleted. Your quotes do not contribute anything to the debate. They’re just a noise technique to try to confuse the issue. If you are incapable of forming your own thoughts into sentences, then go play your creationist recordings elsewhere.

    BTW, I like how you ended your last post. At least you’re admitting your religious motivations.

  9. Jeremy White Says:

    Isn’t it funny how his retort to the cartoon actual validates it?

  10. Ron Britton Says:

    Fundie irony! Gotta love it!
