Incredible Creatures - A Review

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RofGpGwPfX8

Never in my life have I ever seen a more illogical, unscientific and flat out wrong explanation for the existence of animals. Dr. Jobe Martin D.D.S. couples his examination of animal that defy evolution with bad science, omission, a defeatist attitude and animals with anthropomorphic characteristics who seem to use logic to determine when a evolutionary upgrade is needed.

Where to start... AH YES... He's a dentist turned creationist who served "The President" and uses his medical background to explain why fish have teeth due to the migration of fish scales into the mouth. Anyone who has seen a skeleton, any skeleton, knows that teeth are a product of bone not skin, hair, scale, hide, horn or dermis of any kind. However he did refer to the egg tooth of a chick a an actual tooth when it is a dermal mound not unlike a callous. Who is this President he worked for and if this guy was so good why does he not still work for the president.

Big problems arise when the diagram of the circulatory system of the giraffe was backwards. Blue, un-oxygenated blood leaves the heart and goes to the brain and leaves through bright red veins packed with oxygen back to the heart. And this guy is a doctor? That is 6th grade science! There is no excuse for that mistakes.

The European Green Woodpecker has an interesting retractable spear-like tongue that makes miracle adhesives. It's his favorite bird because of its odd tongue. According to the good doctor has a tongue that starts in the back of the throat, around the back of the head, over the top and front, enters the beak's right nostril and exits the mouth. And no other bird has a tongue like this. WRONG!! While the tongue is unusual, the muscles actually start in the right nostril, over and around to the back of the head and out the beak. What he fails to mention is that most woodpeckers have tongues like this. He also states that no other bird has a physiology resembling the woodpecker tongue. When a similar structure of the hyoid bones are found in chickens. Chickens don't have spear tongues but the action of tongue protrusion is similar.

The anthropomorphic characteristics he bestows on animals is nothing less than retarded. He attributes the engineering skills of beavers so advanced, that human dam builders study their techniques for dam building ideas. WRONG. If a creationist wanted to see a transitional animal the beaver is prime. A highly specialized rodent, and adapted for the water it could easily move from semi-aqutic to fully aquatic fresh water mammal like the manatee.

There's a lot more to bash but I'll end it on this. The doctor who is so strong in faith states "Jesus is the Creator". I have read the Bible many times and I don't recall Jesus doing anything until the New Testament... and although mentioned as "the first in all creation" that only puts him higher than animal, man or angle in God's eye's, not the creator himself. Yet to the good doctor, Jesus was in Genesis and created plant and animal.

I did little refuting simply because the moronic dialogue, bad science and ill-reasearched examples, trumps the need for a fact by fact rebuttal. In other words, regardless of the claims of truth, if the man is found to be a fraud, his claims become moot.

If you would like to find the truth of evolution you need to devote a good eight years of your life to the effort and understand and the reference material covering evolution compared to creations is 350,000 to 1 since the Bible is the only book any true Christian should ever reference.

Well... when we get into the discussion of elf creation we will look to you for elvolution. But I digress... This guy claims to be a doctor and didn't get the circulatory system right or where teeth come from correct.

Bad doctor, bad science = invalid point of view.

Except you don't understand evolution or biology so you can't really discuss the subject intelligently.
