Creationist Explains to Eighth Grader How Humans Came Into Existence: “POOF! God Made ‘Em”

Regular readers of this site are undoubtedly familiar with Chad by now. He’s the young atheist who has flummoxed a number of Christian debaters over the years.

Looks like he’s still at the top of his game when it comes to asking questions that trip up Creationists. In a recent debate between atheists Bernie Dehler and Marco Balogh and Christians Ron Kincaid and Dr. Bart Rask, Chad asked Rask what alternative he had in mind if he denied evolution:


Rask’s initial response, to nobody’s surprise, is “God”:

I know that evolution is definitely out because there’s no evidence for it… There are no human observations of anything increasing in complexity through random forces… So my conclusion is based on observations and empirical evidence. We know that it takes a hand or some kind of Designer to make things that are complex

Besides the fact that he’s just plain wrong, it was the follow-up that caught my attention:

Chad: How do you think humans came to be, then?

Rask: Came to be? God just — POOF! — He made ’em!

[Laughter from audience]

Chad: So you take “Poof, God made them” rather than some scientific proof?

Rask: It’s not scientific. It’s based on historical record…

POOF! — He made ’em!”

That’s the full extent of Creationist thinking on this one, isn’t it?

How did we get here? Magic!

Chad wasn’t buying it, and you can tell much of the audience wasn’t either.

I’ve never heard a Christian mispronounce “I surrender” like that, but I’ll take it.

The full debate, which took place in Oregon this past April, is available online.
