The first of a series?[edit]

Should this article be the springboard to a series on especially inept creationists? I'm thinking of John Pendleton and Carl Baugh in particular. The latter is so appallingly bad that his presentations were memorably described this way by YouTuber Gary Edwards:

"Hmmm, it seems that even geologically-confused 'yabba-daba-doo' merchants have jumped on the anti-naturalist bandwagon. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the low hanging fruit. In case you don't recognize this chap, his name is Carl Baugh; or to give him his formal academic title, Carl Baugh. He is infamous in creationist circles for being so incompetent that even other nut-cases who aren't worth listening to -- such as 'Answers in Genesis', 'Creation Ministries International' and Ken Ham -- have expressed concerns that he might blow the whole gig."

(from the video entitled Fake Fossil Philosophy )

Yes, you heard it right: Baugh is such a bad creationist that Ken Ham's outfit is lambasting him... Edwards also hilariously described Baugh's convoluted and oddly "starts-and-fits" speaking style:

"Also Carl, what's happening with the grammar here? It sounds like its been translated from Chinese by someone with with Broca's aphasia."

John Pendleton is the lab coat-wearing auto mechanic automotive technician with a BS B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison who claims to have "worked in cancer research for 1 1/2 years". Pendleton was the focus of the 17-episode "Hello, I'm a Scientist"-series by YouTuber logicked.

It appears that both Juby and Pendleton have been guests in Baugh's creationist show, making him sort of the hub of this bottom-of-the-barrel creationist posse.
