Creationist: If Evolution is True, Is Rape Wrong?

atheistassessment:

In a Creation Today clip posted online yesterday, Creationist Derek Isaacs explained that if evolution was true, then rape must not be such a bad thing:

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, and this kind of ignorance is very terrifying for many reasons.
Statements like this show a huge misunderstanding not only about evolution and animals, but human behavior itself.
If anyone actually thinks that evolution means rape is okay then they need to do a lot more research and I suggest they research birds. On top of that they should realize that it takes more than just the MALES DNA to reproduce. Life isn’t just because of MALES.
A ducks reproductive system is just one of many examples of why this isn’t true. Female duck vaginas have become very complex. They make corkscrews and sharp terms which makes the vagina look like the hardest maze on earth. This is to counteract many male duck from technically raping a female duck. If evolution created a system where reproduction should happen at all costs then there is no reason for female ducks to adapt in a way that can help them avoid egg fertilization.
Another interesting thing about birds is that many are monogamous, meaning they will only have one partner at a time, some will keep that partner for life. Unless there is a special bird god that gives bird god laws, then its irrational to say that evolution changes marriage or basic relationship rules.
Evolution is a fact, but that fact that it exists doesn’t mean the behaviors and relationship patterns that humans have grown to have are now disposable. We evolved and adapted into these emotions as a way of survival. Survival of the fittest doesn’t always mean being the strongest. You don’t need to rape to reproduce. Creating family bonds and working together is often the best way to create strong and healthy offspring that can continue a legacy.

I’m super fucking depressed because my stupid body can’t function like a normal body.
I sprain my back, and when it finally heals I get super sick which causes me to have tendonitis. I’m on a million fucking pain killers which sucks cause 1) they make my head foggy and im a tired asshole all the time who wants to throw up, so I try to not take them and I feel terrible and 2) im terrified of relapsing and doing shit again even though I controlled myself when I sprained my back.
Alex learned to braid today so that he could do my hair, but I can’t even fully enjoy doing shit. Like being touched in unmanageable which is dumb because I really want a hug. I have no appetite nothing tastes good AND I CAN NOT GET COMFORTABLE AND FALL ASLEEP WHILE ON MY BACK.
This summer will kill me.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

And to counter the surgeon argument, do you really think surgeries never change? Of course they do. I mean, they don’t change in the operating room, but a surgeon in a pressed situation might suggest “what if we try ____.” because all patients are different. They might also change things because they see a negative trend.
If the medical field never changed the way they did things, we’d be still getting leaches and sending gays to mental hospitals.
Every field in the world must be ready for adaption and change.

Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman.  From Time Magazine:

TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?

Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
