A Fun(damentalist) Read

I had this site pointed out to me today. Fundies Say The Darndest Things. It's a collection of quotes from Christian fundamentalists presented in a bash.org format. To whet your appetite I'll quote one of the quotes that created the most violent reaction.

One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn't possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.

To which I want to say: It's the fucking Sun you retard. What do you think that giant ball of light up in the sky is doing?

So if you like to laugh and be outraged, check it out

I say a reply to this which said something like:

I stayed up all night trying to think what this outside source could be and then it dawned on me.
