Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

The good lord made 'em stupid

Pharyngula has a hilarious selection of quotes from fundie evolution doubters. This, however, is my favorite. The sensible side of me thinks "No, it must be a hoax." But it is so perfect in its stupidity, I just have to share...

Believe it or not, you were perfect when you were born. You were obviously healthy if you are posting here today, you hadn't sinned, and were making choices and using your free will, though they were small choices. Unfortunately, later in your life you made some bad choices and now you are a sinner, but remember, God MADE you perfect.

One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn't possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.
