Well that’s a very clever analogy, but also a very biased one.
aha, let me guess ....Because you say so or... ?
I have no idea why you think it's a baised analogy, care to tell me why ?
It uses COMMON sense, somehting that religious people seem to fear, cause' it makes them THINK about their beliefs, and see how ridiculous they are.
YES really ! Time after time i try to debate Fundamentalist christians, and the ONLY argument they ever give me is "IT's IN THE BIBLE !!!!! GOD SAID SO" They use this shady badly distorted and translated ancient book to explain SCIENTIFIC questions. the bible is the only tool they have, and it's a broken one.
It would be ironic if your analogy made ANY sense, but it doens't, at all...sorry to burst your bubble!
You see unlike creationism, Evolution has tons of evidence to support it, it uses logic to determine something, and needs proof to back it up
Creationism doens't need that, as long as you find some shady quote in the Bible (whichever translation/interpretation or version of it) about what's beeing discussed, it's enough to be "evidence".
Ya know what smart guy,, Quit talking about all the damn labor pains and SHOW ME THE BABY!

i bet you feel like a hero for calling me "smart guy",
i wonder does one get point from "god" for defending ignorance ?
Face it, you don't even want to see the "baby", period, even if the "baby" was shown to you you'dd still dismiss it with some delusional religious mumbo jumbo.
If you really would want to see the baby, you'dd have searched and found it y. ourself, I know I did...It's out there, Mountains of evidence before you to continiue to ignore
See, when evolutionary explanations/evidence are found (again and again, inform yourself, it's really not my duty to help you ignorance) the creationists shrug and move to the next currently unexplained system.
This is the sure sign of pseudoscience - the hypothesis is permanently exempted from refutation by experience.
"But what about all the other pieces I did get right? Can't you see by the rest of them it's obviously a bear?" replies Science.
"You just don't want to admit it's a unicorn! Your arrogance is getting in the way!" screams Dogma lividly.
Science just shrugs, and continues with the puzzle.
