In this episode, a creationist stinks REALLY to a low bar, as he resorts to "teaching" children about bat wing development using his "textbook." Ironically, he never gives us the source in the description of his video. Being a creationist is one thing, but having kids in your video to make you feel superior (even though, as I will explain in this video, the user knows NOTHING about bat wing development) is a BIG low for you.
