While browsing this morning I found these excellent videos dealing with YEC claims on Youtube:

There's a series of around 20, some dealing with our friend venomfang X. However, there's some realy good material about Hovind, Wells, and Kirk Cameron/Ray Comfort further down .

I wonder who the author is ? His voice sounds vaguely familiar and I'm sure I've heard him before on an Open University video.

I recognise his voice too...from that black dude (John Tickle or something) from Brainiac, but I doubt that's helpfull. Too bad these video's are completly futile, they'll keep repeating themselfs like broken records anyway.

This might be the last in his current series, Number 17:


Number 17

He uses the phrase "antisocial intellectual vermin" to describe our favorite crew Dembski, Wells, Behe, etc.

Laughter is toxic to creationists as they desperately try to be taken seriously.  Just look at how they describe each other:

The most esteemed and highly published, respected and internationally known Dr. Dr. Dembski with more PhD's than Carter had liver pills.

Rubbish.

Dembski was eviscerated by art student laughter at OU; he was obviously rattled.

Laughter is the analgesic and education is the long-term cure.

No.17 is really good Doc. Bill.

I agree entirely with all his sentiments especially the bit about pupils being allowed to question the teaching of evolution in the classroom.

There really is loads of excellent material on Youtube now refuting YECism (surely a lot of this could be professionally produced and used as  teaching aids in schools ?). For example, here's another excellent one on SN 1987, the speed of light, and why the Universe can't be 6,000 years old:

He's up to 24 now and they are brilliant.
It makes me wonder if he does these himself or if he has a staff.

I've been really trying to resist posting in this thread because you are all talking about these utube things (which are entertaining) but an answer to the thread title:

Because they are funny. Really really funny.

Ugh, avoid watching Part 19 if you're one of those people like me who gets really really squeamish and panicky when presented with the idea of eternity.

Well, not so much panicky as I used to, but surely very squeamish.
