    When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity.

    The "Kid" in that video is VFX, VenomFangX or PCS or YouTube fame. He has since been banned as part of an agreement for making liable, fraudulent claims, and filing false DMCA claims.

    He is an over-the-top dishonest creationist.

    These videos were made by a scientist, Thunderf00t in response to VFX channel post which had a subscription of over 300,000 (i believe). VFX made it his purpose to post misinformation as fact.

    This series is really well done. It addresses almost every point of creationist objections by exposing their flaws and providing the actually information that supports the scientific explanation.

    Plus, the SNARK is outstanding.

    Oh, his is also 23 years old....not a kid.

    See the 4 part series titled: 'A Boy Named Shawn'.



    Its a pretty bizarre tale and as I understand it he is getting counseling.

    Wait till you get to the bits later on in the series when VFX gets up to some pretty despicable shit. I know him reasonably well, and I used to be a member of his forum before it was closed down. It's also worth checking out the channel of my mate dprjones about VFX.

    To add to logicallyyours explination. Shawns arguments were the same as any other creationists. He was not picking apart shawn personally on the arguments but rather.

    Unlike other creationists shawn had taken the time to create some well formatted videos and he had a larger fallowing of subscribers. In short he was one of the bigger players on youtube and had good content. Easier to quote good content than bad content.

    a further factor was that shawn didn't actually allow people to respond to his videos and he actively censored any negative comments. Leaving full video's as the ONLY way anyone could respond to him.

    To make matters worse shawn than proceeded to invite more challanges by attacking the rebuttle videos, demanding a debate with thunderfoot, and lying about what was in thunderfoots videos and personal communications.

    More responses. In short he took part in the conflict and encouraged it.


    In short. Shawn was little more than an effective foil. One that continued to ask to take part.
