  1. Just for what it’s worth, these are not “memes,” They are persistent creationist “tropes.” The difference is not trivial.

    A meme is “an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” The ancient “chicken or the egg” question is certainly a meme… but the assertion that evolutionists can’t answer it is not. That would be a creationist trope, “a common or overused theme or device.” Your own blog here shows that “evolutionists can’t explain” is perhaps the most single persistent argument you make in almost every essay. That single trope is central to at least two thirds of the “memes” you list above. In many cases it is not true, in others it is a straw man, but in every case it is a “trope” and not a meme.”

    PS. Evolutionists have no problem whatsoever answering the question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?”

    The oldest fossil eggs we have found are trilobite eggs from about 450 MYA. The oldest fossil “modern bird” Archaeornithura meemannae (let alone chickens) is from about 130 MYA.

    The egg came first, by at least 320 million years.
