Found this in The Progressive (October 2012) in their No Comment section. This is the type of comments that leaves one dumb founded of how much preposterous idiocy there's around.
Heather, most of the stuff on the radio is nonsense. ;)
I agree with Teri. Perhaps they should stop calling it the "Theory" of Evolution, and start calling it the "Law" of evolution, which, for all practical purposes, it is. Living things EVOLVE; living things have ALWAYS evolved; living things always WILL evolve; living things MUST evolve; living things can not NOT evolve. If they did not evolve, the only living things on earth, if anything at all, would be bacteria.
Ubertalk helps. Theoretically. (ymmv)
Creationists must have a strange explanation of why, if god only made one man and one woman, we have so many different races, and so many different languages.(not to mention the very practical matter of early incest avoidance).
Evolution is so easily demonstrated, simply by looking at the many breeds of dog that we have bred from a single species - the change from a wolf to a poodle for example. Loads of breeds have been created by us over the last 50 years. And Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' conclusion is almost inevitable. Of course the strong will survive. The weak die first, as easier prey. So the breed consequently gets globally stronger. That's just common sense.
Nothing of Darwin's work disproves the existence of a god; it is only HOW god had to have created man that is being challenged. If I felt like believing in a god, I'd only have to point out that the garden of Eden story is a parable, or symbolic of god's eventual design for humans - he just started early, with the big bang, like playing pool, where you hit one ball to hit another into the pocket.
To just say "Oh no it isn't" to Darwin's results seems so pointless when evolution doesn't have to negate religious belief.
However, as it happens, I don't feel like believing in a god.
the problem with the ignorant and the stupid is that they can't imagine anyone more learned nor smarter than they. It's all just opinion!
Unseen, I guess I am a bit more charitable than you are.
Oftentimes it's rank ignorance.
Which is not to say that that ignorance isn't sometimes exploited by those who DO know better.
I believe Science deniers should stand up for what they believe in. If he doesn't believe in evolution he should be legally disqualified from ever being treated for any illness caused by an evolved breed of bacteria or virus or in any way benefit from any branch of science that has reached the ability to help him in any way if to reach that stage they had to use knowledge he believes is false.
Who wants to take a bet on whether he'd have that level of faith in his moronic hypothesis?
Too bad cultural evolution has allowed us to overcome natural selection... this guy would be the first to go and we'd be better for it.
