How Evolutionists Deal with Contrary Evidence

How Evolutionists Deal with Contrary Evidence

Edited 10-09-2011
  • Deny that contrary evidence even exists
  • Refuse to see it
  • Refuse to discuss it
  • Refuse to listen to it
  • Malign people who disbelieve at all costs, ignore basic reasoning skills
  • Lie about people and organizations who disbelieve in evolution
  • Use uninformed, undereducated thuggish disciples to patrol and attack people who disbelieve
  • Use the media, especially social media
  • Never allow the playing field to be level
  • Keep insisting that evolution is a "fact", even though it is assumed through faith, not evidence (that's our little secret, Skippy)
  • Pretend to be totally objective and unbiased, despite the fact that this goes against human nature
  • Demand that disbelievers have all knowledge of all sciences
  • Appeal to the "might makes right" fallacy of "most scientists believe in evolution" to establish "truth"
  • Commit tu quoque fallacy, "Yeah, but you do it, too!" (Not true, but do it anyway)
  • Get angry, deliberately misunderstand, put words in the mouths of those who disbelieve
  • Ridicule the straw man that you just constructed (see above)
  • Ridicule some more — whatever strikes your fancy
