Evolution Disproved!
There are so many videos on Youtube claiming evolution has been disproved and that Intelligent Design (the 'fancy' way of saying Creationism) has been proved. The amount of misinformation is so sick. How are we suppose to educate a population when there are so many people holding them back from really understanding the science behind the current theories. They spread straw man theories with the same name as current theories such as the theory of evolution. They give the viewer a completely bat-shit-crazy version of the theory which is in my opinion why so many people laugh at evolution.

What can we do to shift peoples consciousness and get them to actually research what the fuck the theory is instead of believing the first straw man theory a creationist gives them?

RE: Evolution Disproved!
People in their homes, who have full control of what they will watch or won't watch, can only be expected to gradually stumble onto educational material and change their own views. You can't force anything on them.

So, how do you get people to gradually stumble onto material or to seek out minute pieces of material over time, slowly making them accept reality?

By putting out as much material as possible (easy to find), which is easy to read and understand, and which also links to other material that they can explore. At a point, you'd hope they'll think to themselves "okay, this makes sense. I don't see how anyone can think otherwise."

The problem is the people who watch and read about creationism have already made up their minds. They want to believe God created everything and will not listen to the contrary.

RE: Evolution Disproved!
Growing up I was always very curious about other religions. The church I went to did not support this curiosity. I've had Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and Christians all come to my door and I ask each one if they would like to take one of my books home and read. Just to see my side. I have yet to get a positive answer. Nobody wants to read what the other side believes. Its an attitude that is taught from the start and when you are told that this 'doubt' will lead to a eternity spent being tortured in hell.....no wonder people are afraid to look outside their box.

The only problem with that plan is that you could literally beat a creationist over the head with a 2-million-year-old fossil until blood is pouring down their face, and they'd blatantly deny that you were hitting them with anything at all.

Information is wonderful, but it's virtually useless if they refuse to accept it.

Thankfully the batshit crazy people who make those videos on youtube have no say in what gets adopted by mainstream, peer reviewed science.
