Darwin Creationist Award 2018 - Call For Candidates

I've recently looked in on Twitter again after a few years absence and discovered that there is a rich seam of candidates for the Darwin Creationist Award still. It would be a shame to waste this resource so I have decided to relaunch the popular Darwin Creationist Award contest.

Briefly, the award goes to the creationist who, in the opinion of the voters, has done most in a single Tweet, Facebook comment, YouTube video, etc, to remove creationism from the human meme-pool. Candidates must display at least one of:

  • Deep ignorance of science especially evolution
  • Blatant dishonesty
  • Dunning-Kruger idiocy of an exception quality
  • Cringe-making smug arrogance
  • Clear evidence of what Francis Collins described as scientific and theological bankruptcy
  • Any combination of the above

Please provide a link to the candidate post in comments below. Add any comment you wish. Entries will be accepted throughout the summer and the winner will be by popular vote.

As always, the winner will receive the much-coveted picture of the Ray Comfort Golden Banana to print off and frame together with a copy of their winning post.

I have provided a couple of candidates as examples.

1Rudie Van Der MerweCandidate clearly has no idea what evolution is yet considers himself a leading expert on the subject.
2'Cal'
There are no such theories in science. A classic straw man by someone who when asked can't define evolution or say how science explains how it happens.

And of course, it's all a conspiracy started by Charles Darwin, with millions of biomedical scientists all in on it and publishing papers with science based on it as part of the conspiracy. Obviously!
3Under The CarpetSuch brilliant insight into evolution and how it works!
4Marietta MupondaUm... in other words, creationism is true because Marietta Muponda says it is.
5mesaj girl (Adnan Aktar clone) Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!

Nice to get a candidate from the Turkish branch of Creationism Inc.

The Darwin Creationist Award is an equal opportunities contest.
6RockyWell, I guess that's it them. Millions of biologists and biomedical scientists are wrong because elephants didn't evolve from mosquitoes. No defence to that one.
7MikeThis 'expert' on science doesn't know what a scientific theory is and sees it all as a conspiracy.

Tinfoil hat territory.
8Sean ConwayUm...
8Pablo ManzanaIf Pablo doesn't know something then no-one knows it and that proves his magic invisible friend did it - and that's that!
9ApoloJediSo that's it then. All those biologists and biomedical scientists are mistaken. That bloke on Twitter who doesn't know what evolution is says so.
10Creation-EvolutionIf only he had thought to tell us why!
11Truth seeker,free yourself from the deceit Of lies
Apparently, Jesus recorded his opinion of Darwin's ideas! Great user name.

And how can we compete in debate against someone who 'wins' every time he post 💥

He is also a flat-earther (or is that flat-earthist). Go figure.
12TruthordieIt's just that none of the scientists have noticed, but Truthordie has!

I wonder what she would expect fossils to look like if science is right.
13EliJust feel that good Christian lurve!

So highly educated and knowledgeable too!
14Adkins Piano ServiceSo he doesn't know what evolution is or anything about the science.
15Selatole DIMODifficult to know where to start here. Would it even be worth trying?
16Dr David Menton (AiG)LOL! Don't forget to make peace with Darwin! He'll be so upset if you don't!
17Got that! We didn't evolve from Appts (sic)! Texan For Trump just knows these things!

Angry shouting obviously trumps science - which dates the age of Earth using carbon dating, apparently.
18Ted PerkinsThis is the reason scientists don't learn science from the pulpit...
19RodrigoDarwin disproved his own theory! I wonder if he noticed. No-one else seems to have.
20I don't like plastic donas for prasad. it's ahinduComplete ignorance of the science is no reason not to declare it all wrong!

Mind you, it's good to get a Hindu perspective even if it is identical to a Christian and Muslim fundamentalist view.
