Tower-of-Babel
How could I forget to honor the fantastically fallacious Fundies? Check out these snippets from what I consider an award-winning representation of monumentally stupid anti-evolution hogwash.

If, as evolutionists claim, all of mankind evolved from the SAME primitive life-source, then how did we end up with 7,000 different languages? The Bible teaches that God created all the different languages at Babel… “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech … Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth” [see Genesis 11:1-9]. It is far more reasonable to accept the Biblical claim that God created all of mankind’s different languages; than it is to believe that some space-dust from a massive chaotic explosion somehow became life, and then took on intelligence, and then from the same evolutionary process ended up with 7,000 different languages. That makes no sense at all.

Oh stop it! You’re making my sides hurt! Please tell me again how reasonable it is that every human being on earth had a powwow in a valley somewhere, decided to build a really tall brick building so they could go up to heaven,  be famous, and to stay neighbors.

Explain to me how sensible it is that a spirit-man in the sky literally visited to check on their work and got really pissed off that they showed some bricklaying skills. He then decided to keep them from being successful and unified, so he used telekinesis to lift them up, plop them down in other parts of the earth, and then magically changed their languages so they wouldn’t be able to understand one another (or themselves, I imagine). Talk about anti-progress, a bitchy boss, and a serious case of “go sit in the corner and be quiet”.

Oh yeah, that makes a whole lot more sense than gradual change over time.

The most ridiculous thing about this is that Genesis 10 says, in three different places (10,20,31), that different groups of people spoke different languages. Then, two lines later 11:1 says “the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech”. Reasonable as hell.

“If evolution were true, then the process by which mankind has obtained 7,000 languages would be continuing today.”
As a signer I had to laugh at this. New languages are arising all the time, such as ABSL and Nicaraguan Sign Language, so evidently that proves evolution is true. Foot, meet bullet.

*ps. I read that entire article; I should get some kind of medal.

Thanks for that link, you've just made my day! It's really funny how fundamentalists can be so sure of things they don't even know one iota about.
