I'll be real honest a moment.

This whole damn thing really depresses me, even though the law is very clearly on the side of science.

That we still have to debate this issue every freaking month it seems; when the evidence is so goddamn overwhelming regarding the fact that life evolved it may as well be the air you breath, the sun in the sky, and the ground beneath your feet.

I think I'll post funny pictures now

grumpfuff: hubiestubert: Actually, it's being taught similar to mathematics. Do you invoke a variety of deities when you teach quadratic equations? Do you cite Allah or Jehovah or Vishnu when you teach multiplication?

Pffft, everyone knows you can't do math or architecture without Thoth. He's god of those things, ya know.



You can do math without thoth.  But you can't do thpagetti without thoth, or it thuckth.   (In Thpanith, thoth ith called "thaltha" and it goeth good with tortilla chipth and cheethe.  Jutht don't eat too much of the thpithy thtuff or it hurth when you thit.)

While they're going on about creationism, they also need to explain how Anakin was considered to be too old to start Jedi training, when Luke wasn't.  They also need some sort of theory on how the Simpsons halloween episodes can happen when a lot of the repercussions that should happen from those events don't carry over into other episodes.  Like creationism, the answers to these things don't show up in science textbooks for some reason.  It's almost like they're intentionally leaving out fictional events.

Oh please. Show me the hard fact data on macroevolution of any species turning into a new species. Go on.

Macroevolution is a theory based on microevolution with no hard facts or evidence.

Based on that I guess we can't teach macroevolution (dumbed down to evolution in most highschools) as a creation theory either.

For the record I do believe in macroevolution as the most logically theory, but there is no empirical evidence supporting it.


This is brilliant satire, right?

Right?

We'd be better off letting australopithecus dictate our core curriculum. At least kids would learn some practical things about nuts and berries and shiat.


Nah, I hear that  australopithecus would have been sick of us. Debating how we're here, they're catching deer (we're catching viruses).

Fundies don't like evolution because, among other reasons, it does away with the Fall in the Garden of Eden, and therefore the need for redemption, thus making the sacrifice on the Cross completely unnecessary, and invalidating the entire Bible as worthless superstition. And it pretty much takes God out of the picture.

I readily concede this argument to them. In fact, that's where I say "I'm glad we agree on this crucial point. Cocktail?"
