Illustration for article titled Dr. Pepper Facebook Ad Sparks the Most Surreal Creationist Debate Youve Ever Seen

So this is a new one. Dr. Pepper made an aggressively silly ad about the "Evolution of Flavor." It shows an early-evolution man finding a can of Dr. Pepper, and BOOM, full-fledged homo sapiens. Funny! And again, willfully goofy. And then it started a culture war.


Here are some highlights from the flame fest:

Frank Suarez Trin, your punishment will be more severe because you use the lord's name to spew your hatered. You're the one thats going to hell.

Of course, there are a few reasonable folks in there among the trolls and crazies, too:

Galen Ray Richards I am a Christian and I do believe in evolution, I also believe that Dr.Pepper has free speech. This ad worked great. Also Robert I was talking about modern history. I know many people have killed in the name of religion. I would say that they are all in hell today. But you do not believe in hell so its a moot point lol
