Quote# 2709

...Darwin said that if evolution were true, there would be an amazing amount of transitional fossils found. We have 0. Every major scientist has admitted this. They just wont let it be taught because they know that to admit evolution is false is to admit there is a creator, and that is something they dont want to face.

Here's something that makes just as much sense: Scientists know there aren't any transitional fossils, but if they admit evolution is false, then they admit that gumby is a real, living being.

Riiiiiiight ... now if only we could clearly define \"transitional\" (you see, every species is a \"transition\" of sorts).

Carolinus Linnaeus made this silly thing called a \"taxonomy system.\" The comparisons are very interesting.

I'd even go as far as to say \"sensible\", but I bought into the Evo Mafia.

How can creationists say we have no examples of fish-to-ape transitionals, when we quite clearly have DesiderioDomini9?

Every major scientist has admitted it, but they won't admit it?

Even if we find more transitional fossils, you fundies wouldn't be satisfied.

Here's why. Say we have fossils of creature A, and related, more-evolved creature B. So the fossil line goes like this:

One gap between the two creatures. Now, let's say we find creature C, which shows a transition between A and B. Now the fossil line looks like this:

Now we have TWO gaps, and you fundies will now demand transitional fossils for A and C, as well as C and B. Now say we find creature D, which fits in there. Now we have:

Now you'll demand transitional fossils for A and C, C and D, and D and B.

No matter what we find, you're going to demand more transitional fossils. It's impossible to come up with that many, especially since not every creature is fossilized.

Re: Transitional fossils
New Scientist, in December 2008 reported that a transitional fossil had been discovered...
Said fossil, apparently represents a intermediate stage of the evolution of flatfish...

You guys really like lying. Don't you?

Ouch, My Head

Please visit your nearest natural history museum at your earliest convenience. Should that be too far to travel, I suggest a walk around the nearest college anthropology, biology, and paleontology departments.

Every major scientist? Only a Sith talks in absolutes.

There are a million "transitional" fossils but even that is a made up contrivance. Every species that ever existed was transitional in some respect.

God you people are fucking stupid.

Every species, every individual creature, is a transitional form. Twit.

Go to your local natural history museum and look at them for yourself. It's as simple as that.

Your argument holds as much strength as saying cars don't exist - if they did there would be roads everywhere. All you would have to do is go and look.

False dicotomy. It's not either creator or evolution, it can be both as a creator could have jumpstarted the evolution.
And, if there is a creator, who's to say it's your particular creator and not the creator of the Incas?

Plus, every single fossil found is a transitional fossil, stupid.

I am so fucking tired of this fucked up fucking bullshit.

Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron are not "every major scientist."

They are not even two major scientists.

They are not even scientists at all.

The "lalalala-there-is-no-transitional-fossils-lalalalaa..."-case for creationism!

11/16/2012 6:24:00 AM


But there are an amazing amount of transitional fossils found. So many in fact Darwin would be flabergasted by the varied species found since his day. That's a lot more then zero and NO major scientist has ever claimed this, even Behe won't go there.

11/18/2012 9:28:25 AM


Uh...I'm a transitional form (not yet fossilized) between my children and my parents. If you have children and you have parents, so are you. It's that simple, really.
