Godspell Follies

Refuting the illogic of "intelligent design" and creationism. An illustrated guide to fallacies of logic.

Purpose

The author of this site is an atheistic evolutionist.

However, the intent of this site is not an attack on religious beliefs. Religious beliefs are personal and provide much emotional comfort. Those who carry such beliefs to extremes often cause distress to others, but extremism reflects human failings and is not the fault of religious beliefs as such.

The intent of this site is to employ creationist and idist* arguments to illustrate fallacies of logic.

Most creationists who debate on the Internet (including proids) are not interested in learning science, rather they are typically interested only in attacking specific areas of science, presumably in the illogical belief that this could prove their cherished beliefs correct. Most proids* display very little knowledge of science and are merely following the fallacious arguments of other apologists. Creationists and idists typically misrepresent the facts of science, employing fallacious straw man arguments in an attempt to diminish the strength of scientific evidence.
