This Is Not An April Fool's Day Joke

This is an actual video on YouTube. I'm not kidding.

So basically, this particular creationist is making a case that evolution is false because spontaneous life doesn't ever erupt in a jar of peanut butter. Apparently, the lesson here is that primordial earth was made of peanut butter. Yup. Makes perfect sense.

What makes even more sense is that a magical man in the sky snapped his fingers and made a great big world for us to play on, then got mad at us for violating his rules (which he must surely have anticipated, since it was all part of his plan after all), and gave us the rest of the universe basically as a nighttime light show.

And then a few thousand years later, our mysterious creator blessed us with factories that mass produce lifeless plastic jars of peanut butter, just to prove he was behind everything in the first place. How did I not see the logic before?

I'm pretty sure the peanut butter isn't the only thing around here that's made from nuts. God, do I wish this was a joke.
