Thought this article might lend insight into my Ex, but then I saw the guy's from Sucks University.

Now I wonder how it got posted. So the admins don't read the articles, either?

I'm not sure this sits well with the bible.

"Do you think that the amoeba ever dreamed it would evolve into the frog? And when that first frog shimmied out of the water and employed it's vocal cords in order to attract a mate onto the turn of gravity, did that frog ever imagine that the insignificant call would evolve into all the languages of the world into all the literature of the world? And just as that froggie could never have conceived of Shakespeare so we can not possibly imagine our destiny. Look, if you take the whole of time and represent it by one year, were only in the first few moments of the first of January. There's a long way to go. Only now were not going to spout extra limbs and wings and fins because evolution itself is evolving. When it comes, the apocalypse itself will be part of the process of that leap of evolution. By the very definition of apocalypse, mankind must cease to exist, at least in a material form. We'll evolve into something that transcends matter, into a species of pure thought. Are you with me?"

Shut up Bevets - everyone knows that the idea of a loving, forgiving god was a trap set by the true master to tempt us away from him.

there's no such thing as birds. Stop this foolishness of yours. Back to work in the kitchen.

Wait a minute.... does this mean that Chomsky was correct?

Be patient, StevieB--farkers currently consumed with seeking photos of half-nekkid Canadiennes in the far frozen reaches of the 'net. You'll get your flamewar, eventually.

Not a very evolved species, eh?

Okay, the pics were found, and once again, reality does not quite keep up with anticipation.

That's life. Remember your first?

Expect flamewar to commence shortly.

Creationists, unfortunately, are still encumbered with the original bird brains.

I haven't posted in a few months, but I thought I'd jump in to say, "Bevets is dumb."

No flamewar? Hmmm...just maybe, the species is evolving?

And so, just maybe, you need some new material, Beve.
