Quote# 15484

It is ridiculous to me that intelligent human beings actually believe we come from apes. On the other hand, I do not mean to insult their intelligence. Evolution is more a religion than a belief. I think those who believe in it should be very careful and pray that they are doing the right thing. I could never believe in it unless God Himself told me it was so.

WE DO NOT COME FROM APES!!! We share a common ancestor in the very distant past. (Probably all mammals share a common ancestory)!

I say we really start pissing fundies off and pick another animal to claim relation too. I vote for the beaver or pygmy marmoset :)

Its amazing to me that some humans believe that we came from dust and some creature kissed us to give us life.

Prove what?, so far, he hasn´t prove that there is a tree of science, or that snakes speak or that two people can have children being the first created beings in the earth and one of the kids marry somebody else they have not begotten. Please, who is lying?, who is the one who holds a belief?

\"Evolution is more a religion than a belief\"

How do the two differ, and what do they have to do with evolution?

What is a religion if not a belief?
Disregarding the rest of the stupid that fills the post, of course.

SO you wouldn't believe you were sick unless God told you so? OK, whatever floats your boat.

EVOLUTION IS NOT A RELIGION!

Get that through your heads. PLEASE!

Er, My Brain Hurts, we do come from an earlier species of Ape (the common ancestor which you refer to was, indeed, an ape). We are apes, albeit a very highly-evolved species of ape. Though looking at Jesuslover1968's post and others like it makes me question that.

And if my anthropology heard him refer to evolution in terms of \"belief\" and \"religion,\" he would have a fit. YOU DON'T *BELIEVE* IN SCIENCE, YOU JUST ACCEPT IT!

Here we go again with the \"Argument From Personal Incredulity\" approach. Look, I will explain this for the last time: just because you, personally, have a problem accepting something as true, that doesn't automatically mean that it isn't true. For example, every time I see Brittney Spears on TV, I can't believe people actually pay money to buy her shitty music. But they do. My personal beliefs do not define reality, and neither do yours.

I'm God. Evolution is true. Fucking believe it.

Ooookay, then.

Er, Windfoxie - yes I know, which is why I say human and apes share a common ancestor. jesuslover's argument just sounded like to old fundie standby that apes can not give birth to human spontaneously, blah, blah, blah. This is what I was trying to refute - not that we are not a species of apes).

Apologies if my post was unclear.

\"I could never believe in it unless God Himself told me it was so.\"

In other words, you surrender your intelligence and wish to become an automaton. Good for you.

I could never believe in it unless God Himself told me it was so.

That reasoning should make you either the most skeptical or the most schizophrenic person on the entire planet.

\"It is ridiculous to me that intelligent human beings actually believe we come from apes.\"

Whomever believes that is wrong.

\"On the other hand, I do not mean to insult their intelligence.\"

Maybe you should since they are so wrong.

\"Evolution is more a religion than a belief.\"

It is no religion nor a belief, it is a fact.

\"I think those who believe in it should be very careful and pray that they are doing the right thing.\"

Believing fact does not worry me that i'm doing the right thing. Belief in something not proven is the wrong thing.

\"I could never believe in it unless God Himself told me it was so.\"

So you chose to stay in the dark forever? Good luck with that. *rolls eyes*

You heard Tiny. He's God, and He says so. Prove Him wrong.

Evolution is a fact, you dunce! Do you really think I made you out of dirt and kissed you to life? Seriously, I don't like you that much!

How simple life could be if the skydaddy would just send his instructions straight to you...

Bible doesn't count.

Perhaps you didn't get the memo: We are apes.

"It is ridiculous to me that intelligent human beings actually believe we come from apes."

Well of course, but that's precisely because they are intelligent, and you're not.

"On the other hand, I do not mean to insult their intelligence."

Fine. Except...

"Evolution is more a religion than a belief."

Now you're insulting they're intelligence. They are intelligent enough to know that evolution is not a religion and doesn't resemble one in any way whatsoever.

"I think those who believe in it should be very careful and pray that they are doing the right thing."

Do you also think those who believe in gravity should be very careful and pray that they are doing the right thing?

"I could never believe in it unless God Himself told me it was so."

Yeah, well since 'God himself' has never catually told you or anybody else who's ever lived anything at all, I guess you're going to have to remain an ignoramus for the rest of your life.

Ooops. Don't appear to be able to edit my post to correct the appalling fundie-style lapses in grammar. Please forgive.
