"'Intelligent Design versus Evolution' is a new board game that was designed by actor Kirk Cameron and best-selling author Ray Comfort, to help fight against the what they maintain is the brainwashing of an entire generation."
Or, rather, to brainwash a generation with their unsupported, non-scientific creation myth.
"Cameron said, 'We are very excited about this game because it presents both sides of the creation evolution argument, and in doing so, shows that the contemporary theory of evolution is perhaps the greatest hoax of modern times.'"
Kirk Cameron, noted evolutionary biologist.
Uh huh, the game presents both sides but is loaded such that it shows the ToE to be the "greatest hoax of modern times." Yeah, because if you present them fairly, side by side, creationism looks just like the ridiculous fairy tale it is.
"Comfort explains, 'Intelligent Design Versus Evolution' is unique in that the playing pieces are small rubber brains."
Woohoo! Little rubber brains? That means everything in the game has just got to be true.
"We used the brains because want players to use their brains."
As what, doorstops? Paperweights?
"The incentive is to play for 'brain' cards, and the team or individual with the most brains wins. There are brains all over the game, because we want to make people think deeply about what they believe.'"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, but how does one win "brain cards," by accepting, unsupported, creationist assertions?
"'This is because the average person doesn’t know that the evolutionist lives by a blind faith in an unscientific theory (a theory that one scientist called a 'fairy-tale for grown-ups’)."
Uh, NO. The ToE is well-supported by good, solid evidence. It is religions which thrive on blind faith.
Just because you can cite one scientist somewhere at some time (whose name I notice you leave out) who said the ToE is a fairy tale does not make that scientist correct. Compared to the number of scientist who do understand and accept the ToE, those scientist who accept creationism are an insignificant number.
"Through the game we show the irrational nature of evolution, using their own beliefs and quotes."
As you are Christians and creationists,I don't think you are in a position to be a judge of what is rational.
"This explains why evolutionists have a special language, something we call the language of speculation,’ where they use words like We believe, perhaps, probably, maybe, could have . . . ’ They can’t speak of their theory without it.”
As science is always open to new, better evidence, scientist tend to make their declarations very carefully. Your idea of speculation seems imply guessing, but in science speculation is based on the best available evidence. Such speculation guides the direction of further research.
And, your substitute for the scientific method, with all it's nasty speculation, is to rely upon the unsupported, ridiculous assertion of ancient desert tribesmen. Good choice, huh?
"Cameron adds, 'To believe in evolutionary "transitional forms" is to hold to the belief that one species evolved into another. However, there is no scientific evidence of any species evolving into anothernot in creation, nor in the "fossil record."'"
Evidence of transitional forms is plentiful and solid. Whales with legs, reptiles with feathers come to mind.
"Most people don’t know that."
Indeed, many people know better than that.
