Evolution destroyed? (On YouTube.)

Postby a_haworthroberts » Fri Jun 13, 2014 7:13 pm

I have come across all these which I think will interest some of you:
http://freethoughtblogs.com/aronra/2014 ... ins-folly/ (detailed response to a recent viral video by US fundamentalist pastor Joshua Feuerstein by Aron Ra after Ra was approached for a response by 'BBC Trending')
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27679947 (brief BBC article at BBC News Magazine, and a three minute video link)
http://www.godofevolution.com/theory-of ... -facebook/ (tongue in cheek recent blog post by Tyler Francke, which I did not read at the time but have now read; he has a later post too)
http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/ ... -trending/ (a 12 June blog post on Feuerstein but which I have only just seen)
http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd/2014 ... 3-minutes/ (another, 'debunking', blog post - I have only skimmed it but it is very thorough indeed which will be anathema to people like Feuerstein)

I too had never previously heard of Joshua Feuerstein (a pastor in Arizona with a decidedly shouty approach to expressing his opinions). In May he posted an evolution 'destroying' video which went viral; I have not identified the particular video in question* though I see there are various rebuttal videos. I had heard of Jaclyn Glenn (whose face appears alongside Feuerstein's on that BBC video link).


* PS But I think it is almost certainly THIS one even though it is less than five minutes in length; my guess is that Feuerstein has never seriously studied science and it is plain to see (and hear) that he views everything in the black and white terms beloved of conservatives in middle America:

(he bangs on in an uninformed and unhelpful manner about thermodynamics among other things ie he's a person trying to sound clever and sensible about things he is probably pretty clueless about)
