Let’s play a game and see how far you can get in this quiz for “Skeptics” written by a rather bitter creationist before your brain literally explodes into tiny meaty bits. Feel free to leave specific comments about each fallacious question below, but be sure to be extra grumpy just like the quiz creator expects! Here’s a hint: the “right” answer for each question is “D,” so looking at questions 36 and 37 it appears as though to prove that Jesus rose from the dead we only need to take the word of the Bible, but to prove evolution we need to provide a videotape of Australopithecus turning into the quizmaster’s neighbor (do we even get to know what the neighbor looks like? I mean really, help us out).
I’ll get you started by taking an easy one: building a strawman by beginning with the assumption that anyone described as a “skeptic” automatically believes all Christians are as stupid as the guy ranting about doomsday on the street corner (question #29). Thankfully that’s not true, or after reading this screed I’d assume every Christian is as ignorant and bitter as this guy, and what a scary, scary world that would be.
