Willful, Arrogant Ignorance

This is the kind of willful, arrogant ignorance that exists in much of the religious community. This particular guy is a Muslim, but it seems to be even more prevalent among Christians.  Remember the stupid story about the Boeing 747 a lot of Christians like to talk about that was supposed to have been created by a tornado in a  junkyard?

Fortunately, not all religious people are so arrogant about being ignorant. Some have educated themselves enough to understand that evolution is real, and that it is NOT RANDOM. Nevertheless, this kind of arrogant, willful ignorance is still far too common among “believers”.

Another mistake this ridiculous video makes is to equate atheism with evolution. It claims to be about atheism, but it is obviously a parody of evolution by somebody who completely misunderstands both atheism and evolution. If you’re going to make fun of something, you ought to be sure you understand that thing first. Otherwise, it just makes you look as stupid and asinine as this idiot.

More than 150 years since Darwin published his great book On the Origin of Species — and especially now that we have Jerry Coyne’s Why Evolution Is True and Richard Dawkins’ The Greatest Show on Earth —  there’s no excuse for any educated person in the free world to believe, claim, or imply that evolution is just based on chance. Natural selection, which mainly drives evolution, is not random in any sense. And there’s overwhelming evidence that it’s real.
