Don't waste years studying, order our free booklet!

Saw an ad for this doozy while browsing at the Two Percent Company. Apparently, if you want to argue with evolution, you don't need to spend eight years earning a doctorate plus a few more in post-doctoral studies. All that knowledge is false, anyways, and evidence? What evidence? Just plug your ears and sing "I'm not listening, I'm not listening!" and the evidence all mysteriously vanishes.

Now, you might think that you'd then need to study the truths that the Bible teaches. Maybe go get ordained, study in a monastery for a few years so you can be an expert in those subjects. But nope, that's not necessary either. All you have to do is order this free* booklet, and you can argue against evolution with the best of them. Your arguments will be just as cogent as the best creationists out there.

In fact, this booklet is so good, they apparently have no qualms about tagging it with the line, "Is evolution just a theory? You can prove creation." [link added by Satan]

*Free with respect to monetary investment. Your critical thinking abilities may be forfeit.

(I thought briefly about going and debunking all of what they said, but it's like shooting fish in a a barrel. Not minnows, mind you, but great white sharks (those are fish too, you know!), in a teeny-tiny barrel. With the barrel of the gun glued to the shark. And the trigger stuck on automatic, so all you really have to do is take credit for when the bullets hit the shark. Don't know why creationists find that so hard...)

Heh. Yeah, that's one of the reasons that we ended up leaving Google Ads alone to put up whatever ads it chose rather than instructing it to skip the idiotic stuff - the entertainment value.
