Part of a superb series of videos exposing the funny stupidity of creationists and why they deserve to be laughed at. In each case the creationist statements are shown to be outrageously stupid by even the most rudimentary knowledge of science.

In this episode it is shown how venomfangx is revisited to demonstrate to creationists that just because you can read something off the web, that doesn't make it true, or make a good substitute for an education. What is even more surprising is that anyone could find the materials of venomfangx convincing. It's a shocking example of how vulnerable the uneducated are to the wiles of a confident adolescent who they wish to be telling them the truth.
The abysmal understanding of venomfangx of radiometric dating is highlighted (Ive left 14C out of this). Some of his statements are appallingly poorly thought through. Notably his statement that decay rates of nuclear isotopes are not constant and can be accelerated by a factor of a billion. If this were true, there would be no problem with long term radioactive waste storage as we could 'de- radioactify' it in seconds to weeks. The willingness of venomfangx to use his lack of understanding of radioisotope dating to 'prove' its wrong is also highlighted. For instance his idea that radiometric dating doesn't work on open systems is as stupid as saying watches cant be used to keep time, unless they have batteries in them.
