Re: Misrepresent
Kent Hovind has the same sort of crap on his website ... it's one of the purest forms of the straw-man argument. They decide the complexity should be measured by counting chromosomes. Then they sneer: "So, I suppose that means that chimps are more complex than humans". Then instead of concluding: "Hey, wait a minute, I've just proved that I'm a blithering idiot", they say ... "... and, uh, this has something to do with evolution being wrong ... uh ... which I left in my other pants."
