Hey, Snopes! “Fact check ”this:
Where do we come from? Why are we here? These are questions a lot of people agonize over, though we’re usually too busy doing more expedient stuff like watching Netflix. But, because y’all insisted, we got our lazy behinds off the couch and started researching the whole creationism vs. evolution thing. We watched YouTube videos, visited the Ark Encounter, and binged every episode of Bill Nye Saves the World. Several interns died to bring us this information, so please cherish it.
Creationism: Man looked around at creation and was like, “Yep, this was definitely designed. Only an idiot would think otherwise.”
Evolution: It all began when a guy sailed to an island and saw a bunch of birds with different sizes of beaks which of course can only mean God is dead.“The Bee Explains: Creationism Vs. Evolution” at Babylon Bee
Background re Snopes: For whatever reason, the once-useful rumour-squelching site, Snopes, took to “fact-checking” the Bee. The result was funny if you weren’t involved: “In 2018, after Snopes fact-checked a Bee article titled “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine to Spin News Before Publication” (no, really), Facebook warned the Bee that it could be penalized with reduced distribution and demonetization. Facebook later apologized for its warning.”
That’s emblematic of what’s wrong when media services like Snopes experience a need to suck up to the progressive elite.
You can donate/subscribe to the Bee and tell Facebook where the bus stop is. The way things are going, we will all need to seek out indie news—truth or satire. You really don’t want to live in a place where it is dangerous or illegal to be funny.
