Here’s the video. I apologize ahead of time for the stress and ulcers:
The peckerwood you see in above video is none other than Kirk Cameron, a shit-actor from the 80’s who has transitioned quite nicely into a has-been shit-actor in the 00’s. Unfortunately, unlike other talentless hacks from his era, Kirk is under the ill-informed impression that he has something to contribute to anybody.
Kirk has become perhaps more famous in recent years by his exploits with his band of Creationist goons. Using arguments that a sixteen-year-old from the Enlightenment could derail, Kirk and his squad depend heavily on the fact that the religious zealots buying his shit don’t read. They don’t read the Bible, and they sure as hell don’t read anything else. How else do you push arguments that David fucking Hume blew holes in hundreds of years ago?
At any rate, this time they added a new foreword to On the Origin of Species, chock full of ridiculous claims and equivocations. These idiots can’t even separate the big bang theory from evolution in their muddled, half-sentient heads, even after beating them against the topic for well over a decade.
I don’t have the time or energy to step into all of the things wrong with this video. If you feel the need to fly into a rage today, then watch it.
The thing that bothers me the most about shit like this isn’t even how absurd it is. It’s that people like Cameron are the intellectual pinnacle of a large swath of the American public. These shitty, invalid, factually inaccurate, straw-man, non-sequitur arguments are so obviously wrong that even watery chunks of my shit know they’ve met their match. Like Glenn Beck, Cameron is the voice of a generation: a generation of bottom-feeding, toothless red-necks who don’t know their asses from a hole in the ground.
