Take a look at this thread that I commented on
I am Gary White.
What do you think?
Isn't it true that the genetic mutations upon which natural selection depends are, in fact, random. So random mutation does play a pretty crucial part in natural selection, doesn't it? It doesn't seem surprising to me that people who haven't studies the process would pick up on the word "random".
Even with a basic understanding of how evolution by natural selection works, it's pretty mind-blowing. A major problem, I believe, is that people quite naturally find it difficult to grasp the "incomprehensible" time scales both necessary and available for the process. People tend (again, naturally) to think of "a long time ago" as being when they were a kid.
It is, of course, off-pissing that people who DO understand the process choose to propagate the random aspect at the expense of the natural selection aspect.
It is ignorance at home I am told that I am the only one that comes from an ape, and then they have this laught that goes with it when they make this statement. And that I have to know they were created by god, almost stiking the tongue out like a child, "now who is the better one?" And then the ape jokes will follow this. You can not educate a person if they are not open to education, you can not expect an uneducated person to make an educated choise. So the cat will always be chasing it's tail!
I have been trying to communicate reasonably with them and giving them links and sources to learn more. I don't care if they ever become atheists but I do care that they are so stubbornly opposed to science and reality.
I have to live with some people that think like these people, it is not pleasant to talk about religion or really any subject with them since they are full of so much misinformation, stubbornness and vitriol toward science and logical thinking. I have learned to just laugh and not talk much about it with them anymore.
I think I'm done debating (insulting) with them for now. They love to declare that they won the debate, it is so damn funny. Clueless people don't realize how clueless they are. I do hope they wake up and figure it out some day.
The same intelligint designer made, cancer, colour blindnes,ect but then from a religious point of view they would call this Satans work or a test for your faith, and then spend time on their knees praying for god to heal people from the flaws he created. How can you not laugh at their ignorance!
