Meme Mistakes

UnMasking Mistakes behind the Memes for Evolution

aka Evolutionist Misconceptions



Items marked with an asterisk (*) are supposed “common creationist misconceptions.” So actually, they are valid objections to evolutionary theory. But evolutionists – wanting to believe evolution is true need to show these objections are wrong – which is what the evolutionist meme attempts (poorly) to do. These articles explain why the evolutionist meme is wrong – from a mistaken understanding about the objection itself, to false claims, to claims without evidence, these articles below explain why the evolutionist attempt to deflect the objection fails.

So without further ado, here are evolutionist misconceptions about creationist objections to evolution, and why the evolutionist(s) are wrong.

Update Jan, 2019:
I’ve done a response to an atheist meme, so naturally this section is expanded to include memes from atheists, not just evolutionists.

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… Read more »
