How many evolutionists does it take to change a light bulb?

In the decades I've spent discussing evolution and creation online, I've just about heard it all. When I say, “all,” I mean I've heard virtually everything evolutionists have to offer. At a certain point, it becomes the same things over and over. I often wonder if militant skeptics ever have an original thought.

On one hand, it becomes frustrating when I have to push through all the word games they play. On the other hand, I sometimes get a chuckle out of their arguments. They sometimes sound like how a 4th grader might sound when discussing things way over his head.

Let me give you an example of something funny. Have you ever explained to an evolutionist how ridiculous it sounds to think an ape turned into a man, only to hear him respond, “Individual animals don't change; populations change!”? They say things like that to make it seem like creationists don't understand evolution. In reality, it's a red herring intended to derail the conversation.

It occurred to me, responses like this could be answers to light bulb jokes. Think about it: Q: How many evolutionists does it take to change a light bulb? A: None, individual light bulbs don't change. Populations change! See what I mean? The joke practically writes itself. What are some other common, evolutionist arguments that could be the punchline to a light bulb joke? I've thought of a few:

How many evolutionists does it take to change a light bulb?

Two: one to change the light bulb and the other to call creationists “science deniers.”

One, but he doesn't know how the light bulb got there in the first place because that's not part of the theory.

One, but even though he doesn't know how the first light bulb got there, he knows it wasn't by design.

None. The kind of change we're talking about takes millions of years.

None. Under the right conditions, a light bulb could just appear without any intelligent input.

None. If the light bulb burned out, it obviously was unfit.

None. Creationists are just lying, ignorant, stupid liars and they only want the light bulb changed because they insist on a literal interpretation of Genesis.

I'm sure there are some others so if any reader can think of one, just leave a comment.  But as funny as these sound, the correct answer is rather sad. The truth is found right there is the Bible but unbelievers refuse to see it because they are lovers of darkness! Read the words of Jesus in John 3:19-20.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
