The problem is, evolution is GARBAGE essentially. Dead pre-historic bones are garbage and any knowledge derived from them is garbage according to the GIGO principle

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is an rare authentic example of the fallacy of equivocation. The word garbage has a literal and a metaphorical meaning: detritus and falsehood, respectively. In the GIGO principle, both uses of the word "garbage" are metaphorical. This principle would fail if it was taken literally: for example, it would in a literal sense be contradicted by the operation of a recycling facility.
