Peanut Butter – The Atheist’s Other Nightmare

I’m sure all or most of you have seen the ridiculous ’The Atheist’s Nightmare‘ clip, wherein Kirk Cameron and a his Aussie pal try to demonstrate that the banana proves intelligent design (ignoring the fact that the modern banana is the result of a lot of genetic engineering on our part), but this companion piece may be the single most ridiculous argument against evolution I’ve ever seen.  Behold: Peanut Butter: The Atheist’s Nightmare. 

Here you’ll see Chuck Missler attempt to disprove evolution with nothing more than a jar of peanut butter and a specious grasp of the concept of evolution. 

How do these people manage to be taken seriously?

In related news, did you know there’s a GodTube?  That’s mind boggling to me.

    It makes no sense. it truly doesn’t make any sense.

    as far as i can tell the logic goes thus. the wristwatch is made of matter and was created using a vast amount of energy. peanut butter is made of matter that was subjected to vast amount of energy. but be sure as bleach is toxic to humans when i go to the supermarket and pick up a jar of peanut butter i won’t find a clock in there….

    (though wouldn’t it be nice if we could pick up new wristwatches from random jars of peanut butter)

    anyway from what i remember the formation of life on earth occurred with amino acids. these amino acids were extra terrestrial (from mars oddly enough) and mirror the terrestrial variety. and thus we have life.

    remember folks, gravity is just a theory….

    You see, I’m all for freedom of religion, and I believe people can think whatever makes them happy. But close-minded, blinding idiocy such as this really pushes my buttons.

    One, evolution has absolutely nothing to do with ‘new life’ forming on peanut butter. Two, mold is ‘new life’, how do you get people to listen to you?

    You can believe what you want, but when you start out a segment with ‘everything else is just fairy tales’, well you’re already been put on my ‘idiot’ list.

    Fucking ridiculous, and it deeply bothers me that people like this have ‘followings’.

    That may have been the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

    In fact, I think I’m dumber having heard it. Thus, proving de-evolution.

    My favorite bit?  The fact that the safety cover on the peanut butter jar has already been loosened/removed.

    Makes you wonder if Missler checked before they filmed, just in case.

    I found new life in a peanut butter jar once.

    I named it Bob.

    The only thing I fear is that because the level of “truthiness” of this video shoots out the fcking roof, that people are actually going to believe it.

    “Life from non-life, apart from God’s intervention, is a fairytale.  But despite that obvious truth…”

    Line of the year.  Absolutely bewildering.  I just can’t fathom how any human beings can be so completely blind and stupid as expressed in this video.  It’s enough to induce intense misanthropy.

    I’m annoyed beyond words at this. My girlfriend is Christian, and even she thinks these people are idiots.

  • BADD

    Yeah I think it is important to point out that these folks do NOT represent the majority of Christians.

    If they did, we would truly be up the shit creek without a paddle.
