Bastardising Reality

It was a long time coming but here it is, bloody creationists! Most people who know me have experienced the agenda that I have against these people, but I suppose I really should make it clear my thoughts on the subject.

The vast majority of creationists are just the misguided public; I really don’t have any problem with these people, in fact I will take the time to explain concepts on science and in particular evolution to them if they so wish. I think the scientific community does have fault in this problem as well. Most of them haven’t taken the time to explain to the public what, how and even why they do this weird thing call science, some have even looked down on people who popularise it as “not real” scientists (there is a parody of something like that in the series Big Bang Theory).

However, the people I do have a real fucking problem with are the bastards trying to promote this shit aand get away with it. These people are going out there to actively confuse and undermine society for their own personal insecurities and all the money that comes with it.

I guess people who know me wonder why I got into all of this in the first place so I might as well tell this epic tale here. I guess it was a fair few years ago before I started collage and at home I had just started appreciating the wonders that broadband brings, especially YouTube. It was at this point that after searching about dinosaurs (naturally) that I came across this man called Kent Hovind. His well styled hair and car salesman charms shot through my meagre defences as I had never even heard what a creationist was before. I was taken back by a lot of what he had said and made me think (it feels absurd as I type it now but I’m trying to be honest). Later on after watching a few of his videos I came across another channel called ExtantDodo, they completely blew him out of the water and systematically tore apart and shredded every lie that he so smoothly said and at this point I saw him for what he was, a fucking con artist. It wasn’t even that he was confused of miss representing facts. He was out right lying through his damn teeth and smiling about it. It really hit me that there are people out there that will abuse the trust of fellow human beings for their own personal gain. Thus I began my obsession of blowing these frauds and con artists out of the water.

Throughout my years of learning about science I have discovered many wondrous things about the universe which I really am grateful for and I think it is tremendously sad that people will close their eyes to the world because it’s not what a book says it is. Far be it from me to tell other people what to believe, the fact is I do love the imagery and the stories that religion provides the world and I happen to think that parts of faith really can be an asset to this weird manifestation of atoms we all humanity, but when the facts are smacking you in the face and you are curled up in a corner rocking back and forth saying that everything is how I say it is I really do think you should grow the fuck up.

Possibly my favourite quote ever is from Carl Sagan, “We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our answers.”

Yeah! Kick them in the jimmy!

The unwashed masses believe what they are told... but the con artists at the top of the religious scam know that they are lying.
