Has anyone watched any Aron Ra videos?
I haven't watched him and hadn't heard of him before MrID posted about him. I googled him and he just appears to be an atheist trying to get publicity and money from atheism. I assume he's a science nerd too.

Re: Has anyone watched any Aron Ra videos?
Yes, I have heard of Aron Ra, though I don't think I have watched any of his videos. He has been opposing creationism for some time.

Well, if he knows the subject, good for him and more power to him!

Creationists seem to have lost their stuff over the last 5-10 years. There don't seem to be any creationists with big fan bases anymore and all the arguments are stale, reheated, moldy stew.

Goes with the territory.
Aron Ra is a well known strongly anti-creationist YouTube personality. His videos on creation and ID rebuttals are strong science with full measures of sarcasm and derision. Very strong science, well taught in paleontology and cladistics. Also, very strong atheist/anti-theist credentials. And he makes a lot of videos kicking religionists, creationists, IDiots in the ass, the teeth, the balls, etc.

My kinda stuff.

If your education, your entire intellectual experience, were YouTube, then Aron Ra is the very incarnation of the devil for a creationist. Especially one who's wet dreams involve killing evolution. I am not surprised by this rant Mr.ID has to battle Aron Ra. It's in keeping with his education level.

What I am surprised about is this guy has no argument to present. He insists he has destroyed evolution with his newly homogenized, pasteurized, neo-ID v 2.0 and yet he presents nothing to substantiate his claims. Most crazies with these delusions are only too happy to show their syllogisms (sillygisms) and conjecture-as-fact, can't-you-see-the-unicorns, logic.

This guy points to, but doesn't cite any evidence from, his own labored non-scientific prose. His majik paper is a revelation that only he understands and he has/can/will not tell us.

He's so crazy lost in his delusions he can't tell us what these new weapons are and he just won't play the crazy parts right. It's like he really hates evolution and really wants to kill it but, damn, he just can't see how so until he figures it out he's gonna flash shadow puppets and gloat.

Re: Goes with the territory.
I am going to have to check his videos out. Youtube seems like a pretty good platform for this sort of presentation of arguments. And the guys with a following start bringing in money to create professional programs.

I edited about 30 minutes of video from last summer down to 40 seconds to be embedded as a link in a paper. It took me a freaking week! Once you know what you're doing it's probably goes a lot faster.

What I am surprised about is this guy has no argument to present. He insists he has destroyed evolution with his newly homogenized, pasteurized, neo-ID v 2.0 and yet he presents nothing to substantiate his claims.

It's truly baffling and he doesn't act like he even realizes how lame he looks. How can he not know?

It is Dunning Kruger on steroids.

However, I do not find it baffling. I'm well aware that such people exist.

Hmm, Marjorie Taylor Greene is another example, and she even manage to get elected to Congress.

No you don't. You do not have even one science book on ZENODO and you do not have even one science article on ZENODO.

That's what the Duke of Wellington said, wasn't it? "I will choose the battleground to defeat Napoleon. I will go to Korea."

Or he could have gone to where Napoleon was.

It's easy to "defeat" your enemy if you don't actually confront him.

The problem is that you don't even know what the battlefields are.
