Permission to act like a monkey!

Nasir Sadeghi shares this video with the class.



here is a video for some laughs. this person uses obscene and irrational arguments to rationalize intelligent design, and thus blaming everything on SATAN. He decides to mock evolution by comparing it to "the evolution of a knife into a fork". this is a prime example of taking things out of context, and later using them in a matter to one's own advantage (in this case, it didn't really work, but it does give people all over the world something to point and laugh at). either way, hope you all enjoy this as much as i did!

I wish I could be as amused by this as you Nasir. This, to me, is so sad. It is sad because he is neglecting his cat pictured at time 1:38, and his room is really dirty. He needs to spend less time constructing conspiracy theories, and more time feeding his dying cat, and cleaning up his shanty. I am so tired of hearing people say, evolutionary biologists claim that humans came from monkeys. What 'evolutionist,' as this kid likes to say, has said that? I am so glad that people like this are being weeded out of our population. I would love for this guy to move to Sweden where the atheist population is somewhere over 80%. He'd probably get depressed, kill himself, then say in a suicide note that is was actually Satan that influenced his personal decision to die prematurely.

I am not exactly sure if I should be laughing or crying.

By the way, he got the evolution of the utensils all wrong.

Knife- Paleolithic
Spoon- Paleolithic
Chopsticks- Chinese 3000 BCE
Fork- ~1000 BCE
Spork- ~1900 CE

I completely agree with you "black lotus!" It is just baffling to know that some people think this way. It's even worse to think about how some people, who know nothing about evolution, might watch this and actually believe some of it! I would love to see this guy defend his beliefs and ideas to a room full of evolutionary biologists. Oh, and who gave him permission to call Charles Darwin "Charlie?!"

I believe that the history channel is doing a series on evolution.
