You're right. We didn't come from fish. We came from another creature that, came from another, so on and so on, until the fish comes along.

Don't try to misrepresent evolution. It makes more sense than some floating old bastard.

\"Americans just aren't gullible enough to believe that they came from a fish,\" \"

I don't know, a lot of Americans have believed the nonsense you're spouting for decades.

No, they're just gullible enough to believe they came from a handful of dirt.

Creation research.... Now just how does anybody go about doing that?

Gullible enough to believe a work of fiction created by a bunch of primitives thousands of years ago though.

so i guess there must be another reason why we look like fish in the earliest stages of our development.

kkkron -- Yeah, Fundies are generally offended by any suggestion that they had non-human ancestors, but they are just elated to believe they were made of dirt and breath. Go figure.

I think a lot of people or various nationalities are offended that you think gullibility comes into it.

And you're too gullible to realize that we did come from something resembling a fish.

I love this quotation. It's a classic demonstration not only of ignorance, but of PROUD ignorance -- classic hubris.

Is it just me, or does it seem like none of these people have ever read a biology textbook of any kind?

Hey John, have you ever seen a sperm? Looks pretty fishy to me.

It's really easy to make science sound stupid if you leave out huge chunks of information: \"I can't believe there are people who think that Americans came from Mesopotamia!\"

@Dr. Major,

As I Lay Dying. Darl, was it? I believe it even constituted an entire chapter.

Edit: Oops, I spoke before reading your first hint.

In 10,000 years humans will go onto some intergalactic network in fully functional 3d chatrooms (with force feedback for the fundie ones) and make claims about them not coming from Earth but having evolved on their own planet.

@Randola: You don't need prrof for creation, you just need FAITH IN THE LORD ALMIGHTY HAY-ZOOS!!! PRAISE THE LORD! amen.

And it's people like you that lie about evolution and make it seem like it makes such a claim.

Americans? Not gullible?

I stopped reading right there.

Gullibility doesn't even enter into it. A substantial number of Americans are dumber than a bag of hair, just look at all the ones who voted Bush in the last election.
Fact is, they're too fucking dumb to understand the basic biological concepts behind evolution. Genesis makes sense to them because it reads like a fairy tale.

All I ask is that these cretins have the courtesy to bash evolution for what it *does* say instead of making shit up. (Okay, that and keep their religion out of science class.) But they can't even do that.

Creation Research = oxymoron.
