    If it's fables you want how about this one of Aesop's:
    The Fox, The Donkey, and The Lion Skin


    A donkey put on the skin of a lion and went around frightening all the animals. The donkey saw a fox and tried to frighten her too, but she had heard his voice first, so she said to the donkey, 'You can be sure that I too would have been afraid, if I had not already heard the sound of your bray.'
    Likewise, there are certain ignorant people whose outward affectations give them an air of importance, but their true identity comes out as soon as they open their big mouths.

    Sounds like The Fox, The Donkey, and the Ad Hom.

    Do you have any counter argument for the video?
    It was quite interesting.

    I almost never watch videos from links posted on this website. Young earth creationism is too stupid an idea for it even to be describable as wrong. There simply is no point in entering into detailed debate about the contents of a video which promotes this rubbish. Were it possible to defend it then the mainstream churches would retain it as part of their theologies. The only groups that do are microscopic sects whose aim is to retain their membership by convincing them the rest of the world is in error.

    Since RJ's predominant debating strategy is argumentum ad nauseam I'm entirely justified in poking a little fun.

    Thanks. That's really all I need to know.
    Dismissing everything as rubbish is too generalized for me.

    I think even in videos by skeptics of my faith there may be something there worth contemplation. I am not a Young Earther. But I would listen for some things which might be worth consideration

    DeepThought is one of those that the apostle Peter refers to as "willingly ignorant" or in other words ignorant on purpose. 😏

    Only parts of it before my computer crashed and I had to reinstall windows. That might be a sign from God. Who knows?

    Yep, it's a sign you should use Linux.
