[UPDATE: Verge's TV TIP: Tonight, Mon. Feb.10, HBO is showing the documentary, Questioning Darwin. 9PM EST. One topic it covers is the rise of Creationism in the early 1960s as a backlash to the post-Sputnik emphasis in scientific education in Cold War U.S.]
In the wake of Bill Nye the Science Guy’s recent debate with young earth creationist Ken Ham, the online media giant BuzzFeed ran a piece entitled “22 Messages From Creationists To People Who Believe In Evolution.”
The premise of the piece was simple: ask 22 creationists to pose whatever question they wanted to evolutionists, write it down and hold their questions up on a piece of paper for the camera.
BuzzFeed was admirably quiet on the ideological fodder of the piece, leaving it open to the interpretations of viewers and commenters. But the folks over at The Science of Sarcasm took an opportunity too good to pass up, translating the questions into language they think might reveal a little bit of what could be behind the creationist train of thought.

Right after The Creation Museum Debate, the audience who hung around the lobby got to have their turn, and The Science of Sarcasm had their turn, too.
