Took me a little bit to understand here--it appears he's saying that if things are supposed to get bigger and smarter, then evolution is false because humans used to be giants and lived hundreds of years.
So, fail because his "proof for Creation" is founded on already accepting Creation as truth in the first place.

Massive fail. Not only is he assuming his fairytales are true anyway, but evolution says things become MORE ADAPTED TO THEIR SITUATION.

According to evolution things get BIGGER and SMARTER
The theory of evolution says no such thing, moron.
Actually, it's not uncommon that a species has progressively smaller decendants. It's just a matter o adaptation.

The guinea pig is just fine. You're confusing him with the capybara.

[insert picture of Morbo saying 'Evolution does not work that way']
Ok, evolution doesn't mean things get bigger or even smarter. It means they become better suited to their environment. If a predator is introduced into your habitat, being bigger and slower gives you a better chance of being eaten.
As for the shortened lifespans, that's because their tiny hearts need to beat more frequently due to their fast metabolisms. The more the heart beats, the more likely it is to break down.
Simple as that.

Xenoturbella. Neither bigger nor smarter than its ancestors, in fact, doesn't even remotely resemble its ancestors to begin with.

So, according to his own logic, creationism makes everything worse.

Evolution says nothing of the sort.
It just says that the fittest animals will flourish in a particular environment, while the unfit will die. Thus, the surviving animals can pass on their genes.

Explains why American Fundies are getting so fat.. Bigger is better they say
The smarter thing,,,well they didn't realize (Cause they're stupid) fatter is not better

EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY.
Whoops, I left my CAPSLOCK button on.

Another student of Hovind. When will they ever learn?

According to evolution they get better suited to the context, where that means having a bigger chance of having many healthy offspring and caring for them until they do the same.

No, "things" adapt to the environment. Sometimes they get bigger, sometimes smaller.
Neanderthals had slightly larger brain mass than we have, but we survived and they became extinct.
Like the old saying goes: "It's not the size, it's what you do with it, that counts".
There was no world-wide flood.
There is no goal in evolution, just survival.

It would have made Noah's task much easier if all animals had been minituarised before the flood, not afterwards.
Of course, there was no flood and evolution isn't a synonym for physical expansion, but what the hell. Why must anything make sense to these clowns?

I think TruthTraveler might actually believe that guinea pigs are the descendants of pigs from Guinea.
