Do we have a new contender for the title of 'Most ill-informed Question About Evolution?

Sorry,people I may do this a lot. If you have left Y/A R&S never to return because you couldn't take it anymore, you may wish to skim past my blogs!


I think this one has a real chance. Do feel free to rate it on spelling and grammar, incorrect terminology, willfull ignorance, genuine ignorance and gratuitous abuse of atheists. 

Did you know not all science is true?

Equations made after human understanding predict two silly things

broken cups reassemble themselves

waterfalls flow upwards after falling downwards to conserve their energy

nothingness decays into matter and antimatter constantly, filling the Universe with more stars

None of these is true. Scientists themselves observed this

Additional Details

One more thing, animals can't give birth to humans even if their womb is injected with human baby cell

35 minutes ago

Monkeys and humans can't have children together, even if they are the same evolutionary branch

Not to mention the paradoxes in physics and the unsolved puzzles in mathematics

34 minutes ago.

Equations do say all that stuff is true. But humans are more intelligent than their own equations



If I were to give this a rating out of 50 it would go like this:

Spelling and Grammar - 0/10 (makes a nice change)

incorrect terminology- 10/10

Willful ignorance- 9/10

Genuine ignorance - 8/10

Gratuitous insults - 0/10


Hmm - 27/50, not as high as I thought. I think the 'DNA can't exist because acid would make us all melt' question is still in the lead because of his grammar issues and abuse of atheists. I give him a 33/50. If anyone else cares to give a score I may inform the lucky winner when I have five contenders.

Hi everyone - just got up! Sunday morning here. They were on Answers . Sorry - so many people seem to be on answers as well from here I assumed all knew that Y/A R&S means  Yahoo Answers, Religion and Spirituality. I warn you tho - if you are not familiar with it, you may well lose several months of your life arguing pointlessly with fundamentalists who never look at any of your links and deliberately misunderstand you. I will link it  -Here we are:;_ylt=Aj0Ti4_jrAlhgSi3o4uMPQ...

I can't link you the other one because he blocked me.

Ah, Holland you are taking issue with my criticisng the grammar and spelling of fundamentalists - perhaps you have not seen the illiterate, incomprehensible questions asking why 'athiests' 'athists' or 'athesists' are so dumb? The ones I have linked scored 0/10 from me because they were unusually literate. The highest grades are for the worst in each category. You should see the 10/10s - no-one has a clue what they are talking about. I will link you the next one that comes up - it looks something like this. 'Why duz athists are think thay so smart when they say we is munkeys?'

I am not one of those who criticise the spelling and grammar of others just to be superior partly because my own does not bear close inspection but mainly cos its rude and unnecessary and not really the point of sharing opinions.

Holland - Re dinosaur bones - that's interesting! I'm looking up the R Bakker team now.

"The bible is true, therefore Christianity is true"


Wow. They still come up with this lame circular reasoning? Appallingly ludicrous.


I wonder how many of these folks on Yahoo are teenagers? Oh well ...

We all say that and yet we go back! So many times have I deleted my account to stop my addiction and yet I go back. I am also to be found in the gender studies section answering such questions as 'Are all women prostitutes?' and 'Why are women so inferior to men.' :-(
