The Flintstones is NOT a Documentary

I stumbled across this YouTube video of Lewis Black, which I found to be pretty funny, so I thought I'd share.

Quotes of the Day:

"The only way we can determine the true age of the earth is for God to tell us what it is. And since He has told us, very plainly, in the Holy Scriptures that it is several thousand years in age, and no more, that ought to settle all basic questions of terrestrial chronology."

--Henry M. Morris

"In retrospect, this magazine's converage of so-called evolution has been hideously one-sided... Why were we so unwilling to suggest that dinosaurs lived 6,000 years ago or that a cataclysmic flood carved the Grand Canyon?... As editors, we had no business being persuaded by mountains of evidence...Nor should we succumb to the easy mistake of thinking that scientists understand their fields better than, say, U.S. senators or best-selling novelists do. Indeed, if politicians or special-interest groups say things that seem untrue or misleading, our duty as journalists is to quote them without comment or contradiction. To do otherwise would be elitist and therefore wrong."

--Scientific American, Editorial, April 2005
