The Face on Mars?
I think that's a good example. Stupid people, much like IDers and Daniel here, leaped to the conclusion that it must be designed. When we look closely, of course, we can see its just or minds seeing patterns in shadows - it doesn't really look like a face when you see all of it, and looks quite natural, and exactly like what we would expect a wind worn mountain to look like. But UFO nuts, and IDers, don't operate at that 'pathetic level of detail.' Only the superficial matters - it looks kinda like a face if the lighting is right, therefore design.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
