Elizabeth Hasselbeck Uses Handbags to Prove God's Existence (Seriously)

'Really cool handbags and shoes have, like, designers, so really cool people must have a designer, too, even greater than Gucci and Prada.'
Cruel, cruel readers. Everyone is sending me links to this recent episode of The View, in which four women babble inanely about something or other. In this case, it's evolution. Do you people like to see me suffer? This was horrible.

OK, Whoopi Goldberg is wishy-washy, rather than stupid: she argues for some vague kind of deistic intervention at the big bang, then evolution is the mechanism for creating life. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, though … allow me to paraphrase. 'Really cool handbags and shoes have, like, designers, so really cool people must have a designer, too, even greater than Gucci and Prada.'

Oh, wait…that's not new. That's the same old argument the ID creationists have made all along.

Here. The rest of you can suffer and despair of humanity now, too.
