Quote# 2257

Yes we have similar genetics to animals..but you know what, our genes match rats more then they match apes..and we have similar genes to that of house plants. You call it ancestry. I had no idea my great, great, great, aunt was a cactus. meanwhile.. I have yet for you to find somthing irrational about creationism.

Liar. You are just making up every word of that. More like rats than apes, indeed!

I don't want to know which orifice that was pulled from. It's false, and if you have done even the tiniest bit of research you know it.

<<< and we have similar genes to that of house plants. >>>

Define \"similar\". Chromosomes made of DNA, yes. Some percentage of our DNA matching portions seen in plant DNA, yes. More similar than rats or apes, not even close - and again, if you had done any research you would know this.

<<< I have yet for you to find somthing irrational about creationism. >>>

God fucked up the design of our eyes but got it right on squid?
Putting the windpipe and esophagus so close together so we could get food down the wrong one and choke was a brilliant design ...
How about the fact that none of our data matches a young earth, and all of it points to the same old age of 4.6 billion years?

D.D.G. Probably a liar. But if not, and not deluded, let us examine the facts.

His great, great, great, aunt was a cactus and his animal genetics are only similar, and they match rats more then they match apes.

With the beloved adoration of Creationism, I can only assume it is one of the vegetative pod people that got so incensed about the treatment of kindred vegetables like Terri Schiavo.

His God is Groundskeeper Willie.

See, I was under the impression that man was more closley related (In the genetic sense) to apes than mice are to rats.

I created a single cell organism, and gave it the ability to reproduce and mutate. How hard is this to wrap your puny brains around?

And, the reason you genetically resemble house plants is because you are genetically related to every single life form on Earth. I would have thought that would have led you to figure out that you all came from the same place, which I made.

Creationism is magic. Isn't magic generally frowned upon in religious circles?

They actually do this a lot, I guess they think our close DNA relationship with Chimpanzees needs to be destroyed in their flocks view.

Here's two actual favorites of their bullshit, can't readily give you the source but I've heard both these from creationists.

: They've discovered that pig DNA is closer to human DNA than humans. (We only second closest to ourselves, Didntchaknow)
: They did blood tests on butter beans and found them closer to human than anything else. (Yes, a blood test)

And there's always the "We have 60% of our DNA in common with the banana."

These usually start with "Scientists have claimed" because what they're trying to do is either make scientists look like fools or liars.

We don't need to try to find something irrational about creationism. Kitzmiller vs. Dover did it for us.

How about magic? How about creationism's "if the evidence doesn't support our presupposed conclusion then it's the evidence that needs to be amended or thrown out" approach to science? How about the fact that you had to tell a bald-faced lie to protect it (which you bungled spectacularly)?
