An award - "the golden crocoduck" - has been announced by youtuber potholer54 on his new youtube channel Potholer54debunks, to be awarded annually on october 28 to the most audacious lie told by a creationist.

The announcement and channel introduction can be found here

Since they all keep recycling their arguments, will he award the originator or the most strident proponent?

Can sockpuppets enter the competition?

Not that I'm suggesting anything, you know.

It’s time that kids like me stopped being treated like we’re idiots for trying to minister in class. Have you read about the Cambrian Explosion? How did that create galaxies so quickly?

that's a troll, I hope?

Unless I'm quite mistaken, that troll shimmies.


I think B(en) S(tein)'s "Darwinism can't explain what keeps the planets from falling down" should win. Hands, uh, down. :)

What keeps the planets from falling down? Heck, they are falling - they're throwing themselves at the sun constantly; they just keep missing! ;)

There's some great video material refuting YECism on Youtube nowadays. potholer54's in particular is very good, especially his "made easy" series.

Have a look at cdk007 and thunderfoot's material as well. Some great stuff on their channels also.

You're a mess alright, but not the messiah.  ;)

The minute I heard B.S. say that, I thought, "It's called viagra, Ben. Easy as eye drops!" ;)

("Planets." Ben no rocky anyone's world lately?) :D

The nominees have been presented

Billy Crone (some kind of "demonic possession/UFO" theorist),  Berlinski (with a good ol' argument from authority), Harun Yaya, Ray Comfort and a smattering of random youtube creationists.

Here's the playlist
