His name is Joshua Feuerstein. Joshua must believe he’s an absolute genius because it took just three minutes for him to destroy hundreds of years of work by biological scientists.
That three minutes of assumed genius is contained in this video posted on his Facebook page.
The reality off course is that Joshua is a monumental ass. He preaches a very dangerous ideology that will wreck the future lives of potentially tens of thousands of children by tainting their education with pure unadulterated bullshit. Joshua wants science to be kept out of our classrooms. Here’s his starting point:
Evolution is not a science. Never has and never will be. Why? Because it cannot fit within the parameters and parentheses of science for one simple reason: It was never observed. That’s why it’s not science. That’s why it’s called the theory of evolution. One man’s theory.
By embracing such a fundamental misunderstanding of what a scientific theory is, its little wonder the rest of his blasé rant goes pear-shaped. A scientific theory is not something that a scientist just simply asserts. A scientific theory is “a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena.” [one variation].
There’s really no point in debunking the rest of his bullshit, but it’s done fairly well here on Patheos.
If you value honesty and collecting just the facts, I advise that you steer well clear of this guy. And if your kids are going to any school that heeds the demented advice of such corrupters of the truth, get them the hell out.
The future is in science, not fairy tales.
People like that belong in psychiatric hospitals. That goes for politicians whose names start with ‘Z’ too… 🙂

I just reblogged an intro on They say it’s in the Genes: http://avgenes.wordpress.com/2014/06/10/the-evolution-destroyer/ I added a little.
Thank you, Lenny. I am guessing that this article was for me, though you probably would have posted it anyway. I certainly have a lot of questions, so I will be back here soon. 🙂
Actually not for you specifically, but I look forward to your questions.
I haven’t forgotten. I am just finishing my editing. It’s a bit longer than I expected.
No rush. Thanks for keeping in touch.
Please! Not again – my guess is that this nonsense will never stop. Maybe we should log a complaint at Hello Peter
But that would spoil all the giggles…
