Yes, this video was done in 2011 in response to Bill O'Reilly's frankly hilarious response to a question about the tides "going in and going out." Would it hurt him to actually look this stuff up instead of shouting down his guests? I admit, at the time this video first came out, I could have done a better job making points against O'Reilly by going further on research regarding the origin of the Moon, but I'm surprised at the evolution of my video making process from three years ago to today. To this day, I wonder if O'Reilly will ever drop the whole "tide goes in, tide goes out" talking point.<br /> <br /> References:<br /> Belbruno, Edward and Gott III, J. Richard. 2005.

Seriously, has it really come down to this? Theists can't argue cohesively on the internet so they resort to petty tactics like this? I'm not a psychologist in any way (and neither is Christian the Christian), but it's funny how this guy acts like an armchair psychologist in a smug matter by slandering an entire group of people just because he has a disagreement with them on religion. In this video, I try to address his claims within the video as well as point out where he's cherry-picking.<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> Bering, Jesse M. (2002).

Granted, it does cover Darwin’s life pretty aptly, but it didn’t cover what scientists have found which completely go against the creationist account of Genesis in the Bible. Nevertheless, it was still amazingly humorous to watch some of these creationists blunder on so many things regarding Darwin and evolution (examples: 2 plus 2 equals 5 man and “I want to tell Darwin now” woman).<br /> <br /> References:<br /> American Museum of Natural History (2014). “DNA: Comparing Humans and Chimps.” Human Origins. <a href="http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/past-exhibitions/human-origins/understanding-our-past/dna-comparing-humans-and-chimps">http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/past-exhibitions/human-origins/understanding-our-past/dna-comparing-humans-and-chimps</a><br /> Carroll, Sean B.
