I got to admit, I never been more amused and shocked at the boneheaded responses from creationists while watching “Questioning Darwin.” However, what was really disappointing was that for a documentary about the life and creationists not understanding Darwin’s initial findings during his life, this really didn’t cover enough evidence for evolution that was found AFTER Darwin’s death. Granted, it does cover Darwin’s life pretty aptly, but it didn’t cover what scientists have found which completely go against the creationist account of Genesis in the Bible. Nevertheless, it was still amazingly humorous to watch some of these creationists blunder on so many things regarding Darwin and evolution (examples: 2 plus 2 equals 5 man and “I want to tell Darwin now” woman).
