[In reply to: "Why did you believe in evolution, before? Did that sit well with you, theologically?"]

it did at first, then i realized it was weaking my faith and it seemed absurd to believe in so i changed my views.

Sounds like it's your faith that can't cut the mustard there, fuzzy.

Fundie to English translation: \"My religion and reality were at conflict, so I cut reality out.\"

The facts versus the fairy tales, and this guy picked the fairy tales. How sad.

And using the damn language properly was \"weaking\" your faith.

I believed that 2+2=4, then i realized it was weaking my faith and it seemed absurd to believe in so i changed my views

Funny, I did the same thing ... by changing my views about religion.

I can't give a serious answer to anyone who asks me if I believe in evolution.

5/15/2006 1:28:09 AM


Translation: I once understood evolution, but then it got in the way of me believing religion.

Translation: I wanna feel special and can't handle the thought I'm not!

Dear fuzion,
I am saddened that you have chosen ignorance over knowledge. I will never understand how someone could wilfully throw away the truth in favour of a myth.

\"Ignorance is faith\" award?

5/15/2006 12:25:46 PM


on the right hand, we have mythology and magic

On the other hand, science and reason.

It would appear Fuzy is jerking off with his right hand these days...

That's about the most straightforward confession of willful ignorance one can make. This is profoundly depressing.

Fuzy -- That \"weaking\" of your faith was your brain trying to wake up. Next time, let it.

This is like saying:

I didn't steal your hat, and it's a crappy hat anyway.

\"My faith was weakening, so I got rid of the facts...\"

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story!

- Although to be fair, that would fit those 'Lying for Jesus' awards better.

This guy needs a mushroom award - happiest when kept in the dark and fed shit!

\"This guy needs a mushroom award - happiest when kept in the dark and fed shit!\"

This made me laugh.

Mushroom award seconded! So many of the comments above me were funny, and I can't top them. (At least not after 3:00 AM.) Thus, I will refrain from making amazing jokes that people will laugh at, and put this quote under intelligent critical analysis. [/full of self]

[Freud voice] Fuzzy, it seems clear that you never knew anything about evolution. You speak of \"believing in\" evolution, and consider it \"absurd to believe.\" You obviously consider it to be a subjective or vague matter, and you \"believed in\" evolution solely because the experts agreed that it happened.

Now, you describe how evolution came into conflict with your existing religious beliefs, and were forced to address the resulting cognitive dissonance. You considered evolution \"absurd to believe,\" which is understandable, if you don't know anything about it. Yet, you didn't consider your religion to be equally absurd to believe. You were quick to embrace one, and reject the other, rather than learning about the details of both, and you seem to have made this decision only subconsciously. Now, Fuzzy, tell me about your childhood. [/Freud voice.]

Oh, I agree, the Mushroom Award concept is perfect for this post.

[Austrian accent] You be careful fuzzy one. Stupid theists get hurt in science labs.

5/21/2006 9:07:57 PM


I can only assume that you accepted evolution only because somebody told you that you had to learn it in school. You wouldn't ever turn your back on it if you had UNDERSTOOD it.
