Some people, when I start ranting about the cr/evo debate, ask me, “Don’t worry, your Hierophant-ness. The situation isn’t that desperate.”
An example of just how bad it is can be found in crap like this:
The theory of evolution does not and cannot explain so much about the universe that we know. For instance, when and how did water evolve? How does it happen that gravity can hold us to the Earth, and at the same time allow us to step up without any trouble? How did it happen that the Earth is spinning at the exact rate that keeps us from feeling that movement?
This is a perfect example of what we might call Bad Waiter Syndrome. If you have a bad waiter, and he makes a small mistake, such as bringing the wrong kind of salad dressing, that’s easy to fix - you say “Yo, waiter-dude. Wrong salad dressing.”
However, if instead of bringing you a salad, he stuffs a rabid wolverine down your trousers and starts singing showtunes, it’s just overload time. There so much wrong here, you don’t even know where to start. This is what we’re up against.
