Creationist video debunking evolution

http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=30505

 

I watched this video and it came up with some arguments that were interesting. I would like to see what atheists think about this and if they can debunk this. BTW I am not a theist, just don't have all the answers to these questions, though I can tell the video is most likely pseudo-scientific and holding back/cherry-picking facts.

Evolution vs Creation

Creation has no verifiable proof whatsoever. None. Nada. Zilch. Evolution, while perhaps still lacking in some areas, provides so much proof in others. Evolution does not say how life got here. Let me say that again. Evolution does not say how life got here. What it does say is how it has changed since getting here. Regardless of whether a sky daddy put life here, it is evolving, changing, and adapting to its surroundings. Much like religion changes and adapts to public perceptions (do the research).

Dude, I'm a layman. I know

Dude, I'm a layman. I know dick shit about biology or evolutionary biology.

 

I do know, however, that it has yielded practical applications. That is, it works, which is more than can be said for Intelligent Design pseudo-science. Irreductible Complexity has been debunked over and over again... I don't see how people can continue clinging to it. I'm not of the expertise to comment on the variety of other claims, other than to say that no compelling evidence for a creator exists.

 

Perhaps DeludedGod could shed some light on this topic, if he feels it's worth his time.

I finally got around to

I finally got around to watching this last night, and I don't know why I was expecting anything other than, "I don't know what science is, so my religion must be right."

"I've yet to witness circumstance successfully manipulated through the babbling of ritualistic nonsense to an imaginary deity." -- me (josh)

If god can do anything, can he make a hot dog so big even he can't eat all of it?
