I voted this up just to see what the tags would be. I figured for sure his nasal voice would get some action in the tags.
On the whale:
I don't have the stomache to watch the rest, but it's interesting that people in his youtube comments called him out on it and he doesn't want to listen.
If he could be persuaded by reason he wouldn't have made the video.

Festinger infiltrated a doomsday cult who believed that on such and such day they'd be raptured by aliens. They weren't, and the next day, the once-secretive group began to proselytize, despite it being a bad time to do that.
They'd all sold off what they owned and disowned their families, and so they had nowhere to go. But the power of social proof is such that by having new converts they could begin to convince themselves, despite a clear fuckup on the part of their prophet, that the cult was worth believing in.

There's this guy and he's smart, see. He said that he doesn't think evolution is possible....CASE CLOSED!!!
Technically a two day goatee isn't a beardo, though you are dead on about the moron part.
I had no idea wtf this video was about from the title. The guy talks like a complete moron which is fitting for what he talks about.
Wait, whales did what!?
Normally I love hearing creationists stumble over themselves trying to prove evolution wrong, and this guy had potential. Rambling about fossil impossibilities, about science trying to cover up such obvious glaring problems for evolution, etc.
But his delivery is so rambling and his voice so bland... It's like a comedian with great material who can't tell a joke right. Such a waste.

What the hell is wrong with these people? Do they read a fucking book? Also thats no beard.
I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of Fundamentalist/Creationists have NOT read the Bible cover-to-cover more than once (if that). If they did they would clearly see that half of it is complete bullshit about incest, beating slaves and archaic Jewish laws and shit.
The only way, in my mind, that this kind of stuff makes even the slightest bit of sense is if you cherry-pick, just like regular Christians do (an act for which I can't fault them as the Bible can be hilariously dumb)
