Jackson Wheat has a new video answering Creation Ministries International’s claims that multicellularity is a problem for evolution. CMI’s strategy seems to be
- Bring up a topic in evolutionary biology
- Pretend that there haven’t been thousands of scientific papers published on that topic
- Make an argument from incredulity as if the question they’re asking hasn’t already been answered
Jackson does a great job tearing down CMI’s assertions one by one.
Working with Jackson on “The Rocks Were There” book dismantling a quartet of AiG Answers books has been a delight, and needless to say this CMI/Doyle parasitism episode is alluded to in the book. What CMI did in their 2012 video is only a minor blip in a parade of stupid that runs bottom to top among them, including wholesale mangling of cited primary sources, and even instances of making up data or citing non-existent sources.
