Fundamentalists have been very upset about the Neil DeGrasse Tyson show Cosmos, as it offends them by daring to teach actual science to unwitting viewers who might be led down a path of critical thinking and knowledge. Indeed, some of them want the show to offer the “alternative viewpoint” of Creationism, as if that is somehow considered science. Because science is so anathema to their worldview, some, like radio host Janet Mefferd, are under the mistaken impression that vast numbers of scientists don’t “believe in evolution”:
“Boy, but when you have so many scientists who simply do not accept Darwinian evolution, it seems to me that that might be something to throw in there, you know, the old, ‘some scientists say this, others disagree and think this,’ but that’s not even allowed,” she said.
Yes, that is a thing that Janet Mefferd said.
The good folks at Funny Or Die decided to respond to the fundamentalists’ call, with an episode of Creationist Cosmos, which explains that God created everything — except gay people:
In “Creationist Cosmos,” Jared from the Baptist Church of Alabama explains to viewers that God created the stars, the moon, ants, dogs, trees, cars, sandwiches — in short, everything — except for gay people, “they chose that for themselves.”
Creationist Cosmos also addresses the fossil record, explaining that the fossilized remains of ancient creatures were actually buried in the ground by Satan to trick foolish humans into doubting God’s word.
Perhaps now they will be happy with this representation of their worldview. Enjoy:
