Quote# 33007

Here is a reproducible experiment for all you evolutionist.
Take all the raw material down to the atomic level that would be found in a mechanical pocket watch. Put it into a box, apply heat and pressure and shake it up all the time you are doing it. How long till a pocket watch will appear?

I don't even know what kind of weird point this person is trying to make.

EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!

Here's a fun fact: Metals are NOT organic molecules.

What brand of pocket watch? What if the original watch was a Rolex and the molecules somehow assembled into a Timex? What if the hands on the watch were reversed? What if... hehehe, this is fun.

Furthermore, you can take your strawman and shove it up your ass.

that's magic or Godly powers.

Evolutionists don't do stupid research. They know this will never happen. A Being that created and controls the universe? Absolutely ridiculous.

You gotta get really close to their ear before you try yelling that again. It's okay, I got your back.

Let me know when wrist watches start reproducing, and then we'll resume this conversation.

"How long till a pocket watch will appear?"

Same as before.
Long enough for watchmakers to evolve.

Next stupid question.

I'll wait until replicators are invented. There's more likelihood of that happening, btw.

You know, if watches could reproduce with variation (mutation) and were selected on for their timekeeping ability, I'd bet it wouldn't take long at all.

And I'd be right.

apples are not cars.

"How long till a pocket watch will appear?"

The current thinking is, I believe, around 14.5 billion years, give or take a couple hun. Like Quantum Mechanic said.

As long as you keep the bag with the atoms well closed in the pocket you can use it as "pocket watch". You just need a mass spectrometer to read the time.

As soon as watches start fucking, like living things do.

What do pocket watches have to do with biology?

Here is a reproducible experiment for all you creationists.

Make two watches, one men's, one women's, and put them in a beautiful tropical garden. Next tell them there is one tree in the garden they are not to eat from, taking extra special care to point it out so there's no confusion.

Q1. How long until one or other watch eats the forbidden fruit and precipitates the fall?

Q2. How long before creationists recognise that you can't just substitute in a watch for any complicated thing and expect the same processes to occur?

whatever

It depends how you shake it.

And here's an experiment for you, wankerscout:

Find the shard of the Allspark, go to the National Air and Space Museum (the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Centre; part of the Smithsonian Institute), find the Lockheed SR-71 there (it's the big, black plane; you can't miss it) and touch it with said shard.

How long till that SR-71 transforms into the ex-Decepticon Jetfire? [/nerd] [/smartarse]

'Bollocks!'

"Here's a fun fact: Metals are NOT organic molecules."

What about the eponymous submarine in the TV series "SeaQuest DSV"? ~_^ [/nerd II] [/smartarse II]

About as long as we'll wait for this idiotic argument to disappear.
