Cute. It's good to have the links to check out the whole story.
A 1 in 10,590 chance isn't all that small. This guy should have checked out the chances for winning the lottery jackpot.
Seriously, how many people think that the 'fact' that the earth is 6000 years old is more important than the message the Bible was supposed to be conveying?

There are plenty of transitional fossils. Whale ancestors who walked on land and a bird ancestor with teeth, a reptile-like tail and feathers come immediately to mind. You Fundies really ought to stop discounting transitional form fossils. It just makes you seem that you're so desperate and weak.
Any chance that can be expressed as odds is not impossible.

Anti-evolutionary dogma has just been given three serious setbacks in a row: the devastating Dover decision, the creationism class removal in California, and the backdown in Ohio from criticizing evolution in education standards -- and all that is just in the public area *outside* of scientific circles themselves, where creationism-based assertions never even established so much as a toehold on credibility or acceptance.
So, what's all this about \"Darwinism\" being \"on the retreat\"? Retreating from what -- victory?

Ummm those chances are good actually

vichycyclIn the middle latitudes, North America receives the most lightning due to its unique geography conducive to thunderstorms. Lightning detectors show an average of about 20 million cloud-to-ground flashes per year across the United States.Lightning: FAQ
So, in an area the size of just the USA alone (regardless of 'belief' in tectonics) that's 20 million multiplied by let's say the first half-billion years of earth's existence with water on its surface. That = 10 trillion trillion opportunities for it to hit the right spot with the negatively charged valences of these primordial-soup atoms lined up in tide pools of positive clays, etc. If only one in every trillion hits lands on those lined up atoms, that's 10 trillion spontaneous generations.the chances of which themselves coming into existence by chance are 1 in 10950
*pulls out calculator, just a head-in-the-clouds evolutionist after all*
10 trillion divided by 10950 is 91 million to 1 that it happened.

DARWINISM IS ON THE RETREAT, AND IS NO LONGER IN A POSITION TO DECEIVE THE WORLD!
Um, I really, honestly, hate to break this to ya, but, uh...
YER FUCKIN' WRONG! WRONG ASSHOLE!! YER FUCKIN' WROOOOOOOONG!!!

Transitional fossils exist. You lose.

He's a Muslim creationist, he's not lying for Jesus, he's lying for Muhammad.

ALL FOSSILS ARE TRANSITIONAL
Sorry for the all-caps, but I'm sick of pointing this blatantly obvious fact out all the time.

What Vichycycl said, assuming he is correct.
Wow. You failed spectacularly.

(sigh) EVOLUTION DOES NOT oh fuck it, it's like talking to a wall.

You can not be anymore wrong. And the chances of a deck of cards in any particular order is 1: 6x10^64. By your definition of impossible, a deck of cards can not be in any order whatsoever. But for that to be true, there cant be deck of cards. OMG!!! Cards do not exist!!!

Just too ridiculous!

I doubt the chances of life spontaneously arising are nearly that good. Yet it did and here we are.
Also I’m pretty sure Darwinism is here to stay on account of it working so well, sorry if that breaks your heart.
P.S. there are plenty of transitional fossils actually; in fact all fossils are technically transitional (unless they’re extinct.)

Just to put things in perspective, the chances of this happening according to him (1 in 10950) is 30 times more likely than taking 4 random cards out of a pack of cards and them all being the same number. The second one has been done, so why not the first one?
6/11/2008 8:46:18 PM
I've actually argued with someone like this and for some odd reason, they refuse to believe that if someone has a chance of happening on its own and it happens, it happened on its own.

the kettle is calling the irony shiny.
am I doing that right?
