Evolution for Dummies :

Feel free to use this as an educational tool to attempt to educate those, you know, who will still deny what Evolution is:

Apart from the cringe factor of hearing a (rather nice) English voice pronouncing the word Americano-stylee (ever-looshun) instead of the proper way (eevo-looshun), that's a smashing little video   One of the better ones of the great many I've seen, and like all such materials, will never be seen by those who need to see, learn and inwardly digest it most. So it goes.

You pedant you, or does that make you a pedantic?

LOL

I thought the video was concise and even understandable to the those who profess a misunderstanding!!

Yes. That

It was! Beautifully so, IMHO.

Ah well, the operative word there is "profess." Some people just don't seem to get evolution - really, really, really just don't catch on. Undoubtedly others profess such a misunderstanding, for their own ideological reasons. It's not always an intellectual reason: it's true that if you really want to understand exactly how evolution works you need a fairly firm grasp of some basic genetics, which requires a bit of reading up and application. Nothing massive: just some easily-available popular-level books, a few YouTube videos, some good websites, that's about it, really. No doctorates needed. You need to want to know, in other words, which is exactly what the truly intractable foes of evolution don't want.

Shame you and I will be the only ones on this forum to watch it, and form an opinion about it..

God bothers tend to faint away under a puff of logic when involved in such Truth....

No, I don't think so: there are (currently) no die-hard literalist 6-day young-earth creationists posting on the board. AFAIK every staunch Christian-theist posting here at the moment is on board with evolution by natural selection. How they square the circle and reconcile that with theism is their own concern.

I may be wrong, and am always open to further evidence of course.

Can I wait for the dummies to respond?

I'm afraid that for me the video was far too fast-moving and lacking in detail, and anybody who doesn't understand evolution would quickly lose interest on it.

That is inevitable, of course, when you try to explain the process in such a short time, but I don't think it will convince many "dummies".

I am a God botherer. I watched it. I formed an opinion on it. I am not an antievolutionist.

Maybe ... or maybe the movie should have been made clearer!
