With apologies to Sam Cooke, Lou Adler and Herb Alpert.
Don't know squat about history.
Don't know any biology.
Don't remember any science I took.
In fact I only ever need one Book.
Half a wing? That's easy!
Instead I give you Chrysopelea, the flying snake. As bare-minimum wings go, this has to be about as minimum as minimum gets. These creatures don't have wings, wing-like protrusions or even, for obvious reasons, flaps of skin between limbs and body. Nope, they just have the ability to flatten their bodies out into a frisbee-like cross-section.
You could falsify the big bang,
You could prove past the slightest shadow of doubt
That evolution never occurs—
Drop Darwin and Einstein down the spout.
I'd laud you for your achievement.
I'd thank you for exposing those bad ideas,
But unless you provide me with evidence,
Your Designer's still wishful thinking, my dear.
If you think that proving me wrong
Means you win, then your logic is sadly at fault.
There's no limit on numbers of runners
And no race is ere won by default.
Kukulkán and Tepeu made man out of maize,
But that's just a story from the old Mayan days;
It's cobblers, rubbish—it's pure bovine faeces!
But mud and spare ribs, why that's worthy of praise;
Clay-made men, baked in the sun's rays
Are the obvious way to begin a new species!
When Zeus seduced Di, as a shower of gold
(How does that work? I've never been told.)
That's a myth, nothing more; just an old fable.
But when God laid Mary, as a ghost, so we're told,
Then all of a sudden, lo! and behold—
We're supposed to believe it's as real as this table.

Sorry 'bout all the video-posts lately. I've been a tad busy. Anyway, here's Non Stamp Collector's wonderful take on the story of Noah.
If the Smith family had an ancestor named Jones, why are there still Joneses?
Although it widens in range a bit in the last ten minutes or so, it's largely focussed on the subject of ACE schools, their slow but steady encroachment into the UK, and Ofsted’s rather astounding approval of such schools. (Somehow 'schools' doesn't seem the right word. Try 'houses of indoctrination.' )
