Lying makes baby jesus masturbate.

Lying in the name of the baby jesus is how riedhied masturbates.

2/27/2008 8:19:46 PM


Jesus said there is no God and riedhied admitted being a lying idiot.

I know, because I just made it up.

2/27/2008 8:20:38 PM


I think this is a wonderful insight into the mind of a fundie. The story is made up as you need regardless of what reality is.

2/27/2008 8:26:43 PM


Well, duh.

Old Viking

Well I'll be gosh-darned.

You have to understand Jesus religion. . . . was hijacked by others.

Jesus said his ideas were stolen and turned into an excuse to go on a rampage of killing torturing and looting.

Jesus just wanted to drink wine and get make out with his 12 buds.

Lying for Jesus?

"darwin was just thinking out loud at the wonder of life and the universe..."

He was? That's wierd. I wonder how his name got on my copy of Origin of Species.

2/27/2008 8:37:46 PM


Yeah. Thinking aloud and WRITING AN ENTIRE BOOK ON IT!

2/27/2008 8:39:40 PM


Isn't there some commandment about not bearing false witness?
Oh, and please learn how to use an apostrophe and capital letters.

Observable Reality

Yeah, that's why he spent decades researching and fine-tuning his theory before publishing it.

Although there is some truth in what you say. Social Darwinism did indeed hijack his theories and used them to justify colonialism, but I wouldn't call it a scientific religion.

2/27/2008 8:43:30 PM


Yeah, I mean it's a good thing it was just an off the cuff remark, and not A FREAKING BOOK WRITTEN ON THE SUBJECT.

For people who venerate reality as a creation of God, they spend a lot of time ignoring it.

2/27/2008 8:45:56 PM


This goes beyond revisionist history into the realm of revisionist mythology.

2/27/2008 8:51:05 PM


They just don't get it, do they?

Just because they believe things just because they believe Jesus said so, doesn't mean we believe what we believe because Darwin said so. We don't believe in evolution because Darwin said so, so fundie attempts to discredit him as racist, etc. don't have any effect whatsoever.

Septic Sceptic

Well you're kind of right Riedhied. What actually happened was this: Darwin was just thinking aloud about nature when some people overheard him say "Creatures who are best adapted to their enviroment will be the ones to pass on those traits to their offspring, and to only those offspring shall be given..."

The eavsdroppers were intrigued, and asked him what he had been about to say. Darwin, lost in thought, asked to be left alone to formulate his theory, but still they pestered him, asking, "Is it a secret?"
"Must be, otherwise he'd tell us."
"Is it the secret of eternal life?"
"Tell us master, we were here first!"

An ruckus then broke out, during which Darwin slipped aboard the Beagle to safety. When the dust cleared, somebody cried. "He's gone! He's been taken up!"

The rest, as they say, is history.

2/27/2008 8:57:13 PM


Where EXACTLY did Darwin say "his ideas were stolen and turned into a scientific religion."

Yeah, I thought so. You're a fucking liar riedhied.

2/27/2008 9:10:05 PM


But Darwin was just thinking aloud about amusing conspiracy theories...

2/27/2008 9:24:40 PM


Where and when did Darwin say that? What document did he write that says this? If this is from his bogus death bed repentance then you just lost all credibility.

Seriously, tough, it's bad enough they take his death, and fabricate stories about how he recanted his ideas, now they're trying to say he never came up with them in the first place?

2/27/2008 9:34:20 PM

He never said such a thing. And he never rebuked his own theory in his deathbed. What other nonsense will you concoct to support the unsupportable?

2/27/2008 9:36:40 PM


Yes, wondering aloud in MULTIPLE PUBLISHED BOOKS FORM.

2/27/2008 9:39:06 PM


Next you'll tell us he was a sleepwalker and wrote those heretic books while possessed by Satan. Guezz.

Tomby Stone

"Practically when naturalists are at work, they do not trouble themselves about the physiological value of the characters which they use in defining a group, or in allocating any particular species. If they find a character nearly uniform, and common to a great number of forms, and not common to others, they use it as one of high value; if common to some lesser number, they use it as of subordinate value. This principle has been broadly confessed by some naturalists to be the true one; and by none more clearly than by that excellent botanist, Aug. St. Hilaire. If certain characters are always found correlated with others, though no apparent bond of connexion can be discovered between them, especial value is set on them. As in most groups of animals, important organs, such as those for propelling the blood, or for aërating it, or those for propagating the race, are found nearly uniform, they are considered as highly serviceable in classification; but in some groups of animals all these, the most important vital organs, are found to offer characters of quite subordinate value."

"What was that Charlie darling ??"

"Oh nothing darling, just thinking aloud. You know how I get when standing beside you gazing at a beautiful sunset"

"Oh Charlie you old romantic"
