They're clearly all experts in their relevant fields and have proved evolution, indeed virtually all the science that is taught in universities, colleges, and schools everywhere, and which is practiced in all industries across the world wrong.

Who am I, a mere pleb, to argue with people like this.

No, the revisionism is Noah Webster's treatment of American spelling. So what it means is "Darwin Was Rong, Matey". :)

Speaking of the Edinburgh Creation Group (as we were), the folk over on RatSkep are groaning in horror at a video from them. It's by one of the Suffolk performers, Paul James-Griffiths. I haven't looked at it yet so I can't spoil the delight you will all have watching it over the Bank Holiday. Here are just a few quotes to whet your appetites:
An entire hour of creotard lies? How can you hate yourself this much?
Good grief. I made it to 7 minutes
Just playing it now.....I sense the fail already (3 minutes in)
I estimate that I've lost 10% of my IQ thus far. Must.... switch... off...
The thread is here http://www.rationalskepticism.org/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=38855&view=unread#unread The video can be seen there or at this link:http://edinburghcreationgroup.org/video/31

I watched it end to end and it is, indeed, very tedious and with no substance. He is basically trying to claim that the theory of evolution by natural selection is an ancient Hindu religious philosophy and therefore not science. Everyone has been duped! The Freemasons, apparently, are a major historical part of the duplicity. The presentation rambles incoherently between evolution, the old age of the universe and its origins.

The underlying "theme" of the presentation appears to be that "evolution" is not a "Christian" idea but pagan and therefore bogus.

Maybe I sent the wrong link and it wasn't Griffiths and the Edinburgh Creation Group but Oktar and the Ankara Creation Group. :twisted:

From the ECG link:
"Did the theory of evolution start with Charles Darwin? If not, whose work was he building on, and from where did they get their influences?" Alfred Russell Wallace perchance?
(Or was it some dastardly Greek philosophers who had no evidence, Paul?)

It's basically the same old tired names from a decade or more back preaching to the choir.

If it's anything like the imminent one by Andy McInstosh about biomimetics, it'll just be a cloud of steam and hot air. :D

Fire and brimstone more like!

I recently saw a video of him presenting his creationism to a group of creationists (SDA) at Loma Londa university. He is an unyielding and extreme fundamentalist who thinks everyone he disagrees with is, somehow, dangerous. I found the man to be deeply authoritarian.

These first two talks may interest science fiction fans based in England and Wales (I doubt I will now attempt to get to the first one as I still have pressure sores and need not to be in the wheelchair for excessive periods):
