I think I heard that Darwin renounced the theory of evolution on his death bed. Of course people would rather discount that than believe in God.

And I think you're an idiot.

Fundies sure love them urban legends.

1. That was a lie, perpetrated by a Christian trying to discredit evolutionary theory. Didn't God (or somebody like that) supposedly say something about lying being a bad thing?
2. Even if Darwin had done this, any such dementia would not have any bearing on the validity of his perfectly cogent theory of evolution by natural selection, which has only been supported by additional evidence ever since then.

\"Of course people would rather discount that than believe in God.\"
Yes. They would. Because Occam's razor is hard to avoid.
This quote should get a retro-active

Discount an obvious lie rather than believe in two!
Ok, put me in the sane pile please.

Funny how people like to discount crap, isn't it?

Once again... sloooooowly.
It... does... not... matter.

First, you heard a lie.
Second, even if he did, it's been proven time and again by scientists. Remember, back in the Dark Ages, many people renounced heathen theories such as geocentricism and round earth theories in light of religious persecution.

Believing in God means you have to buy every lie a Christian comes up with? That explains a lot. Bush supporters for example

Yes, that's a lie. But even if it were true, Darwin wasn't some kind of prophet who can recount his words. Anyone (in theory) can think up evolution themselves, since it is very logical.

"I think I heard..."
...the Lady Hope bullshit.
Doesn't matter anyway. The man's dead, but the Theory is stronger than ever.

Well, ever since Copernicus recanted, the sun has started orbiting the Earth. Don't you guys know? A recantation is more powerful than the very laws of the universe themselves.

You heard wrong. Even AiG admits this is bullshit, and a bad argument even if it was true.

I heard Darwin did a perfect triple backflip on his deathbed. So much easier to believe than your God.
