If DRS is correctly representing his grade 10 teacher, then his teacher should be fired. Evolution explains the development of life not the formation of the Earth. Maybe he should have tried geology.

I bet there's more to it than this person says... Who knows though?
5/10/2006 8:00:05 PM
He apparently dropped out of the class before he learned what the theory of evolution even meant…
5/10/2006 8:29:28 PM
I'm guessing you got half credit too much!
Nothing like shaping your 'facts' as a result of your beliefs instead of your beliefs as a result of your facts.
Dumb as dogshit - and proud of it!
5/10/2006 8:33:43 PM
makes sense, considering his ability to reason hasn't evolved since kindergarten
5/10/2006 8:54:13 PM
You shouldn't have gotten even half credit, then.
5/10/2006 9:05:55 PM
Education is supposed to give you the facts. You don't have a choice about what those facts are. Don't want to believe that the Earth is round, that it's billions of years old, that a global flood never happened, that evolution is real? Too bad; those are facts, and your rejection of them doesn't change them. In rejecting those facts, you rejected an education that might have prevented you from making such a proudly asinine statement today.
Oh, and I agree with Pike and Julian; you obviously still have no idea what the theory of evolution entails, and you should have gotten NO credit for the entire course on account of your mule-headed determination to remain ignorant. I hope your seat in that class went to someone who could accept, if perhaps not get excited about, the information necessary to an informed life.

Blame Hovind. He's the retard who insists on bundling up the ToE with geology, astronomy, physics, etc.
Is it surprising when you find easily manipulated dimwits falling for his lies?
5/10/2006 9:41:37 PM
Now lets be fair, berny. There are probably a million other idiots that influenced this kid besides Hovind.
5/10/2006 9:55:37 PM
The ToE isn't about the forming of the earth. Maybe you should have stayed in class long enough to find out what they were talking about.
Why should someone be given half credit for refusing to learn the material?
David D.G. -- Exactly. The facts aren't options.

The fact that it was posted on the Sean Hannity site speaks volumes about this person's intelligence level.
5/10/2006 11:32:26 PM
Well, if his teacher was saying that planets reproduce and are naturally selected I could understand that. But something tells me that wasn't the case...
5/11/2006 12:41:30 AM
Um, you guys, don't be so hard on DRS. I agree. After all, if my teacher started professing that the means of explaining the formation of the Earth is evolution I would transfer out too.
5/11/2006 1:20:14 AM
Maybe he should've stuck round long enough to find out that the ToE has nothing to do with the Earth forming or is that heresy against his straw stick figure!
5/11/2006 1:24:35 AM
Wow! I wish I knew that I could have graduated high school by signing up for a class, refusing to learn the material, dropping the class, and then repeating the process one time over to gain full credit! It would have taken me 8 years to graduate like that instead of 4, but I would have had 8 years to goof off and/or get my writings published, rather than 4 years of actual, whatchacallit, work. (Of course, I probably wouldn't have gotten into college that way, so never mind.)
5/11/2006 3:58:48 AM
That's bullcrap Maronan, there'd be Christian Colleges and degree mills falling over each other to sign you up!
Mind you - no real job prospects upon purchase of your degree!
5/11/2006 4:23:48 AM
What about televangelist jobs, Julian?
5/11/2006 4:56:34 AM
I auditioned, but I couldn't stop laughing everytime I mentioned divine intervention.
They weren't too impressed with me adding the F word between 'Jesus' and 'Christ' either by all accounts.
5/11/2006 6:52:36 AM
This explains so much.
5/11/2006 8:33:19 AM
Well, that sounds like a reasonable consequence for your willful ignorance.
5/11/2006 1:37:00 PM
Maronan - you mean you didn't multitask? I found that if I glanced up at the blackboard from time to time, I could keep writing and so long as I was quiet, the teacher had no idea that I hadn't done a stitch of work in weeks.
5/11/2006 3:53:06 PM
Given that DRS doesn't even realize that the theory of evolution has zilch to do with planet formation, I'd say they were being kind giving him that 1/2 credit.
5/11/2006 5:22:43 PM
Manibeaux - I think it was actually just to shut him up, because they'd patiently explain why he shouldn't get credit and he'd just retort with things like \"Then how is it that there are PYGMIES and DWARFS?\"
5/11/2006 7:23:52 PM
chuckles at fools
you mean the earth <i>DIDN'T</i> evolve from a monkey?!
