Shouldn't this be in the episode 2: Creationism forum?

We were talking about a Libertarian Wiki, I do believe, not a creationist/evolution wiki.  That's all that I can recall.

OK, my bad. Besides, we've already got SkepticWiki for the creationist stuff anyway.

Back on topic:
"We're the product of random chance?"
"If you support evolution being taught in schools, you're supporting social darwinism/survival of the fittest!"
"Evolutionists believe everything came from nothing."

Oh, sorry, I forgot what the actual topic of the thread was. It isn’t as much a strawman as it is a plain falsehood, though.

"Evolutionists believe everything came from nothing."

Yeah, that one pisses me off, too. I once wrote to somebody on YouTube: „ATHEISTS DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING CAME OUT OF NOTHING, YOU IDIOT!!!”

That moron then quote-mined me as: „EVERYTHING CAME OUT OF NOTHING, YOU IDIOT!!!” — even though everyone could see what I actually wrote — and proceeded to mock the strawman he built.

Fucking idiots.
