A glimpse into ignorance

I was researching sources on evolution for a paper I am writing when I stumbled upon a site; "Proof that evolution is a hoax." Now of course this piqued my interest. How could there be "PROOF"? I let my curiosity take over and checked it out. What a crock. This Christian fool is using If-Then statements to disprove evolution and prove creation. If there is no _______ then there has to be creation. If evolution is ________ then why doesn't it today. Etc, etc, etc. My problem is that this guy isn't just a complete fool, but he is spreading his poison to impressionable people and indoctrinating them with ignorance. I am writing this article to encourage all of you to go to this site, read his material, chuckle a little, and then rebut the ridiculous things he says. If we sit in silence then we are just as guilty. And though it isn't our way to push or beliefs on others, it is our charge to promote intelligent thought and critical reasoning to others so as to stop the foolishness in the world.
P.S. Side note, I am currently in a Philosophy of Religion course online rounding out my B.S. degree and I don't think anyone expected to run into such a challenge in the course. They are all Christian/Catholic. They all have no intelligent comment to answer my questions with. It is hilarious. But they still cling to their beliefs when backed into an intellectual corner.
Check the site out.
