Have you ever looked at someone, and found yourself in awe at their ability to figure out how to breathe, let alone form a sentence? Well, folks, meet Megan Fox, a home school mom on a mission to protect her kids from the anti-Christian mechanism known as “science.” Fox is one of those people who is too stupid to know she is stupid, like Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Joni Ernst, or pretty much any Tea Partier anywhere, ever.
Fox recently went on a mission to the Field Museum’s “Evolving Earth” exhibit to audit it for bias, she says in the description of the video on YouTube. “She found many examples of inconsistencies and the Field Museum’s insistence that people support opinion as fact without proof. The Field Museum pushes certain theories as if they are absolute proven law when that is not how the scientific method works,” the description reads. “She found enough bias to show that the people who put this exhibit together at the Field Museum pushed an agenda with quasi-religious overtones: the cult of ‘science’ where the ‘scientists’ are more like high priests pushing a religion instead of using the correct scientific method. Aside from having time machines, there is no way these people can be this certain about things they speculate happened millions of years ago before recorded history.”
Well, if facts and peer-reviewed evidence is “bias,” perhaps she has them there. After all, she does have her Bible and a stunningly asinine belief in dragons (This is not a joke. More on that later).
Fox’s video begins with a bit of confusion over 7th grade science. After someone tells her how to pronounce a term she has somehow never heard before, “eukaryotes,” Fox takes issue with basic scientific knowledge surrounding cellular evolution. “None of this makes any sense. It doesn’t make sense to a fifth grader, it doesn’t make sense to a third grader, it doesn’t make sense to a thirty year old, none of this makes any sense,” Fox said. “This is muddled thinking. This is thinking from like, Darwin’s thinking from 100 years ago and we should know better by now.”
Yes, Megan, you should.
Megan moved on to another exhibit on fossils, which is where she says “facts” are introduced because she can see them. “This is where there’s actual science that we have,” Fox says. “See? Fossils. That’s science. Don’t tell me how they got into existence because you don’t have a clue. I don’t want to hear about your theories and your stupid theories about how these creatures came from one cell when you can’t prove it to me. No one can prove it.”
Fox says that she doesn’t want her children told that we have any evidence that extends past what she can see with her own eyes because that makes her angry. She would prefer that her kids be told “it’s OK not to know.” While she was impressed by the fossils, it was not long until Fox found something she did not like: an explanation of how some life evolved on earth. Fox complained that peer-reviewed, accepted scientific theory was offered instead of multiple idiotic conjectures like “aliens.”
Fox took issue with the idea that animals transitioned from living in water to land because God created water creatures to live in water and land creatures to live on land.
Fox contends that we can not possibly know what happened millions of years ago because we did not have a “video camera” there. “Where’s the tape,” she asks. “I want to see the evidence.”
“This is all just guessing,” she said of a display that talks of the evolution of plants. “There isn’t one bit of evidence here because guess why?” Fox said. She explained that nothing can be true because “there’s missing links.”
“It’s not like their fins fell off and they grew feet,” she explains. “That’s what they want you to believe, that their fins fell off and then they grew some feet and started walking on the land. This is the dumbest theory I’ve ever heard in my whole life. It’s not good, it’s really not good. It’s bad. It’s very bad. Do you know how complex feet are?”
Fox may not be a ‘scientician,’ and she may lack the most basic scientific knowledge, but she sure knows how complex feet are!
“Feet are so complex,” she says, “that people who make robots have not been able to replicate feet. They can’t make a robot with the same dimensions feet as a human being because it won’t stand up…Why?” She explained that “technically, when you try to make a human foot you can’t do it. No one can do it.”
Later in the video, Fox explained that she and her children saw dinosaurs at an Indianapolis museum that has a good amount of real dinosaur bones. She explained that one of her children exclaimed, “Mom! It’s a dragon.” Then, using her ‘observational science’ methods, she noticed that it did, indeed, resemble the mythical creatures.
“If skin was stretched over this thing, it clearly looks like drawings” of dragons. “I look at it, I say ‘My God! It is a dragon! I’ve never seen anything like that. It looks just like a dragon. It is. It’s a dragon. And my mom says ‘It’s a dragon. Look at that!'” Fox explained. The technician working on the bones actually had to tell grown adults they were not looking at a dragon, which horribly offended Fox.
“Yeah, you’re gonna dash the hopes of my children because their imagination, they just they can’t have that,” Fox said. The dinosaur in question was named after a Harry Potter dragon, Dracorex Hogwartsia, which she feels is proof it’s a dragon because it looks like a dragon. “And yet there’s this woman in a lab coat saying to me ‘That is not a dragon, no, no, no. That’s a dinosaur’.”
“I maintain that that’s a dragon,” she said. Her proof? The person who named it was a fan of Harry Potter. Let that sink in.
Watch this cavalcade of stupidity for yourself, below. It’s hilarious.
