I love how they also immediately go into how we all know God exists, and any atheists or agnostics are only such out of pride.

I don't understand it, therefore it can't be true.
I don't understand it, therefore God must have done it.

Great arguments....

Okay Im about 40 seconds into it right now, and my main issue with the video so far is that apparently the government decided there wasnt a better use of time and money than counting the number of grains of sand on the earth :S lol

I face-palmed when Eric said that an animal with half a wing and half a leg would be the mid-point in dinosaur-bird evolution.
I rarely face-palm in real-life as a response to Internet videos, but this so stupid, the FP reflex just kicked in.

Yea, they made that bit up as well. The number they're throwing around comes from a simple equation filled in with rough estimates. You could get the number in about 10 minutes, and there wasn't ever a study.

The fact that there are more stars than grains of sand is a pretty irrelevant fact, but if anything its evidence against a personal creator. If the universe was created for us, and earth is the dominion that God rules over, why would God create those extra trillions of stars that have nothing to do with us.

Ok, what the **** is wrong with people.

Start watching it there. Why the **** do people talk about evolution without having the slightest idea of what it is? It's sickening. What's worse is that it's not just him that's crazy- the audience was in favor of his ridiculous statements.

A popular thing nowadays is to say "lol, no evidence of half bird half dinosaur lol!" when in fact there is overwhelming evidence of common ancestry and intermediary species. It's the equivalent of someone showing you pictures of North Dakota and then saying "Nah, I just don't feel like North Dakota is real, ya know?"
