See that? The end of that spine ends in what is commonly referred to as the TAILBONE. It's an essentially useless bone except to serve as living proof that creationists are idiots.

Dear Fundamentalist Christians:

Why does your God want you to believe stupid things?

I was working onsite as a consultant for a certain SC government institution a few years ago. They didnt have a desk set up for me, so instead I had to hang out in the bosses office for like a week. He told me this long drawn out story about how he had to take his kids out of public school cuz they were trying to teach them that "evolution BS!" He was all, "can you believe that? As if the Bible weren't true??"

Since they were paying for me to be there, I just had to sit there and nod my head and pretend that he wasnt a tard. Brutal.

triptik: Can't we come to a compromise and just agree that God himself turned apes into humans?

Nobody and nothing turned apes into humans. They evolved from a common, non-ape ancestor.

bbcrackmonkey,

might as well bust out the finger-bone comparisons of different species of mammal. They aren't going to buy it anyway.

Fancyfeast - that's my point exactly.

The superstitous are all too willing to use the fruits of scientific methods (but fighting it all the way - think of gravity, the solar system, the concept of a vacumn, how lightning is generated, and the list goes on). Yet science is how we have airplanes, computers, modern medicine (I wish ALL the fundies would pray to get healed, cause then DARWIN would help weed them out).

Of course, when their favorite myth is challanged, they go apeshiat...

I love fundies... The source of so much amusement for me, but sadly the source of so much pain and suffering for others...

I don't have a problem with people choosing to believe in whatever they wish. What I do have a problem with is when these same people use their other, realated beliefs to make life difficult for the rest of us.

I was in medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the early 90s, and having a lot of issues with the whole system. Went to the Dean of Student Affairs and told him I was thinking about quitting. He whipped out a pad and paper, and drew two cliffs. Labeled one "Man" and the other "God." Then he drew a cross between them and labelled it "Jesus."

That was his answer to my issues.

I dropped out soon afterward.

And Christians whine that higher education is full of atheist liberals.

True enough, although Linnaeus would probably disagree with you. I don't have a phylogenic tree in front of me, and it's 2:20am.

Someone needs to create 'Fundie Reservations' much like the native American reservations. Then they can live in their fairy tale world without bothering anyone else, and they won't have to worry about the 'Evolution Propaganda Machines' or 'Science Nazis' or the 'Stormtrooper Biologists Peddling Evolution Pornography' or whatnot. And they can have casinos.

Just Ignorant, the lesson there is to never ever live in or visit Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, etc.

You know I've never ever met somebody on the internet who was from one of those 3 states. Guess why?
 
2005-03-23 02:22:34 AM
Ya know, this is a good thing, because if they were to show the film, the fundies would be forced to watch it and would have no choice in whether to see it or not


Hmmmm....weren't we missing a similar article when the Last Temptation of Christ was released about the Jews in New York being outraged and the theatres not showing it....yeah I'm pretty sure it still played.

Donald_McRonald, AHHHH!!! Scientologists!!!

Best way to respond to them is to tell them that you are an agent of Xenu, pharmacist, or psychologist. I like to tell them that Xenu was right and that thetans should be embraced as loving companions. I tell them that they need to get in touch with their inner thetans.

just make sure you get up, go to work, pay taxes, come home, drink beer, watch the tv, repeat until death. don't think.

a society kept ignorant is the easiest to control; so as a patriotic american it's your expected duty to not question humankind's origination.

that's for the people outside of america's protective and cozy walls to waste time on.

Linnaeus' taxonomy as it pertains to the great apes has been revised several times. A history of the taxonomic changes can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ape#History_of_hominoid_taxonomy

I know. I was attempting to be clever. Apparently it backfired... but then again, I've been up since 6:00 yesterday morning, so I'm a bit off right now.

Our society will always have a need for the uneducated, as our janitors, garbage collectors, ditch diggers and so on. If a certain region of the country persists in turning out such people, then we are forever ensured of having a domestic pool of step 'n fetchit types, rather than having to import them from overseas.

Problem is, each one gets the same number of votes as you: one, a fact of which they are quick to remind us all.

Hello. Did someone mention Xenu?

*calls lawyers*
 
2005-03-23 02:29:12 AM
I'll now illustrate the basic reason why creationism shouldn't be taught in public school (now with easy-to-follow steps so even fundies can play along).

1. Creationists claim that life was created out of nothing.

2. It is scientifically PROVEN that it is impossible to create something out of nothing.

3. Creationism therefore requires a belief in an intelligent higher power that isn't bound by the laws of the universe.

4. If a belief in an intelligent higher power is required, it's religion (by it's very definition), and doesn't belong in public school.

Thanks for playing along

As a priest in the Darwinian Atheistic Red Commie Bastard organization, I say we force them to SHOW the movie bundled with the Last Temptation of Christ as an antidote to the passion of Christ.
 
2005-03-23 02:31:11 AM
It is interesting, as Bevets view represents what most supporters of ID and creationism beleive. What Bevets and others cannot accept is that evolution is not limited to atheism at all. Most evolutionists are theists, because if God made the universe and world, and Bevets agrees we can learn about how the world works, and evolution is supported by that investigation, then is it not only wrong, but a sin to go against how God made the world. Of course, this would mean Bevets and his ignorant cult leader are wrong which he is unlikely to accept or even question. Creationism= close minded. (Flame on!)
 
2005-03-23 02:32:06 AM
bbcrackmonkey,

Ontogeny's Recapitulation of phylogeny was not the original theory of Darwin, nor is it the modern idea. In fact, the argument is that fetuses of different species are more similar to each other because they are developmental variants of each other.
 
2005-03-23 02:35:04 AM
Discover Magazine and National Geographic have both skated right up to the edge of calling evolution outright proven. I prefer to listen to men who don't believe anything that there isn't a huge supply of evidence for, rather than men who insist I believe something because some heavily-edited, badly translated, widely misunderstood book says so.
 
2005-03-23 02:35:27 AM
Does this mean that IMAX won't be doing any movies with flying invisible mermaids?

They don't just do that. They also cock a snook while voting for the most retarded candidate possible, simply out of spite.
 
2005-03-23 02:37:36 AM
Perhaps I should rephrase that. Darwin did not originally propose the principle that ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny. His argument was more expressly developmental in character.

Rephrased for Creationists: You go run along now and play with your toys. Grownups are confusing each other, and there's no need to confuse you any more.

/Yea, darwinian arrogance from the intellectual alpha males.

Northern:

In my experience, Creationists don't give a diddly squat about atheism vs. theism. All they are concerned about is their limited view about HOW God created the world, i.e., the story put forth in the Bible. They'd be just as quick to discard other versions of the creation myth as you or I would. And don't even think about referring to the creator as the "Goddess," because that seems to get them more upset than the most secular explanations out there.

This movie taught me all I need to know about life.
 
2005-03-23 02:40:38 AM
Just for the record, I'd like to point out that many brilliant scientists are very spiritual and often religious, which just goes to show the more you investigate the mysteries of the universe, the more in touch with the divine you can become. And that a lot of religious people know how to walk the line between faith and perception gracefully. Here's to that.

I think those who think Men and Women were created need to step back and objectively look at the human body and all the design flaws.

The only reason we aren't covered in fur is that several million years ago, our ancestors spent all their time at the beach and started to become aquatic mammals like sea lions.
