Creationism by Lewis Black
Lewis Black talks about Creationism and Evolution
I was browsing around the Net, reading the news, researching, and exploring, when I ran across this old video of Lewis Black on The Daily Show. The comedian shows up once a while to do a bit called "Back in Black", a signature monologue in which he rants about something or other. As well as being hilarious, Mr. Black is an astute observer of life and his analysis of our foibles is very spot-on. Just what the heck do we put forward as the truth? What do we believe? I have no doubt the Lord is sitting on high laughing at us. After all, Lewis Black is pretty funny.

Back in Black with Lewis Black is a popular segment on the show, where "America's foremost commentator on everything" and comedian Lewis Black catches the stories that, according to his introduction, "fall through the cracks", and comments on them in a humorous rant. The segment starts with an opening riff in the style of the AC/DC song "Back in Black". The segment originated in 1996, when Craig Kilborn was still host of The Daily Show. As of 2013, it is the longest-running recurring segment that still airs on the show, aside from the Moment of Zen.
Wikipedia: Creation–evolution controversy
A 2012 Gallup survey reports, "Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God's guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process."

Kent E. Hovind (born January 15, 1953) is an American young Earth creationist. Hovind has spoken on creation science and has aimed to convince listeners to reject theories of evolution, geophysics, and cosmology in favor of his interpretation of the Genesis creation narrative from the Bible. Hovind's views are contradicted by scientific evidence and some of his ideas have also been criticized by young Earth creationist organizations such as Answers in Genesis.
