GodTube Video of the Week: Evolution Cartoon

Can someone out there please explain this video? The only part I could understand is that this person that created this cartoon is saying that evolution would mean fish turns into frog turns into human. Are they really that simple minded? And the rest of it, the part about the frog dying, what the hell was the point of that? If anyone out there can explain it please do so!

Christian biologist fired for beliefs, suit says

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20071210/od_nm/evolution_lawsuit_dc;_ylt=ArMActa1dwEQECTPs9SL3cWs0NUE

According to this article, Nathaniel Abraham, an Indian national who describes himself as a “Bible-believing Christian,” is suing his former workplace, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, claiming he was fired beasue he  does not believe in Evolution.

However, since he is a zebra-fish specialist one would assume that belief in Evolution was an essential part of his education and knowledge.  I wonder how he  believes the zebra-fish came about.  Does he really believe that God designed the Zebra-fish and that it did not evolve over thousands of years?  On that basis alone he should have been fired. 

He claimed that he was willing to use evolutionary concepts  for his job but would not accept using the Darwin theory and was fired because he refused.   One may ask why he was even willing to compromise his beliefs that far considering  he said he didn’t believe in evolution at all. 

Guess where he is working now?   He is now a so called biology professor at Liberty University,  a Baptist school in Virginia founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, a Christian pastor and televangelist.  It seems to me he should be thanking his former workplace for firing him as he is now at the place best suited for his non talents.  Pity that he will be further brainwashing  christian students.
