Megan Fox....No, not that one.
After watching all the way through this 30 minute video of this creationist ranting throughout the Field Museum (a wonderful museum, by the way), I felt two things. First, that I would never regain the brain cells that had purposefully killed themselves to stop listening to her complaining. Secondly, I feel absolutely sorry for this woman's children as they are most assuredly going to be behind other children their age because of the terrible education they are receiving from their mother.
She went to the Field Museum, and from the fact that she did not once ask a docent for clarification on claims made on plaques, you can tell that there was no interest in actually learning the science, just ranting about scientific biases. Let's have her explain what her video was about.
Dan Arel quoting description of Fox's Video on YouTube writes:
In November 2014, Megan Fox toured the Field Museum’s ‘Evolving Earth’ exhibit to audit it for bias. She found many examples of inconsistencies and the Field Museum’s insistence that people support opinion as fact without proof. The Field Museum pushes certain theories as if they are absolute proven law when that is not how the scientific method works.
My favorite is that the video opens up with her not even being able to pronounce the word "Eukaryotes". Seriously, you are going to critique the information that has been gathered over hundreds of years by scientists and laypersons, yet you can't be bothered to learn the most basic terminology from the field. Utter hubris shown right from the start.
Dan Arel writes:
Perhaps if you cannot pronounce eukaryotes you have no business critiquing biological sciences. She also claims that dragons exist, but that scientists are covering up the evidence because, it would throw off their whole time line of what they want you to believe.
So, here is my nomination for loony of the week. If you can stomach the absolute horrendous ranting about "why are there still monkeys", "was there a video camera there", or "telling my kids that dinosaurs aren't dragons will destroy their imagination" then sit down and prepare yourself for a half an hour of stupid.

The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity. - Richard Dawkins
Creationists make it sound as though a 'theory' is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night. - Issac Asimov
If you removed all the arteries, veins, & capillaries from a person’s body, and tied them end-to-endthe person will die. - Neil Degrasse Tyson
What would Buddha do? Nothing! What does the Buddhist terrorist do? Goes into the middle of the street, takes the gas, *pfft*, Self-Barbecue. The Christian and the Muslim on either side are yelling, "What the Fuck are you doing?" The Buddhist says, "Making you deal with your shit. - Robin Williams
