To 'destroy' evolution is just to easy. It is like shooting fish in a barrel.

[Responding to jr7's later comments in the thread about thousands/millions of biologists...]

At least you can get a consensus among them. When was the last time fundies could agree with anybody on anything rational?

To be fair, shooting fish in a barrel can vary immensely in difficulty. Try shooting an anchovy in a silo sometime. With a musket.

Until somebody asks you how the fish came to be and asks you for evidence to prove it.

this is "to" easy as well...

Your English Teacher

Destroying the English language is easy as well.

Really? Go ahead then...

Are you planning to shoot the fish best adapted and getting the remaining weaker ones to breed?

10/23/2007 10:18:08 AM


If it's so easy, why haven't you destroyed it yet?

Another John classic from that thread:
Nope, things could have evolved, without using the evolutionary process. Evolve means to develop or achieve gradually.

Well, maybe it would be, if you had any ammunition. All Creationism has is blanks -- lots of noise, but no substance.

On the other hand, destroying Creationism is definitely too easy -- it's like shooting fish in the gun barrel (with lots and lots of fossil ammunition).

it WOULD be easy to falsify evolution with the right evidence. but Creationists don't *understand* evolution, so don't even know what that evidence would look like

Mocking this is way too easy, it's like shooting a blue whale in a barrel.

that thread is hilarious, It reminds me Church of the SubGenius.

Strange that someone hasn't done it then isn't it?

I'm seeing this guy shooting fish in a barrel:


"Dang, missed!"


"Dang, missed again!"


"Dang, shot myself in the foot!"

10/23/2007 6:12:39 PM


But the fish are reptiles...

Refuting creationism is like shooting a fish in a pile of fishes.

To 'destroy' creationism is just to easy. It is like shooting fish in a barrel with nuclear bombs.

Not really fundie so much as cliche.

11/19/2008 5:03:09 AM

a mind far far away

I lol'd. If it's so easy to 'destroy', then why don't you try to do it. Then, we'll show you, using observable reality, why evolution is true and creationism is a fairy tale. Come get some, bitch.

Then do it already. Submit an evolution-destroying thesis to a prestigious college and get an honorary doctorate in biology. Become world famous. Unless you are bluffing, that is.

The reason he makes such a bald assertion without making good on it is that he thinks he already has.

In his mind, he has so thoroughly and soundly refuted evolution and left it in ruin, that it's obvious to everyone except a few hangers-on that are desperate to cling to their faith.

When asked to cite this, he will link to an argument which he clearly lost, and will interpret corrections as praise of his deductive skills.

This has been the mind of a fundie.
