There are a bunch of evolutionary biology PhDs who want to have a word with you.
3/2/2008 1:49:42 PM
...only a couple of books that claim evolution is true.
Wahhhhhh haaaaa haaaaaa haaaaaa.
3/2/2008 1:52:06 PM
So... Harry Potter is real?

I wish I was a monster that fed off stupidity, I'd be set for life.

I imagine there are more books on astrology than astronomy. That doesn't make them true. You don't get to vote on reality.
3/2/2008 1:55:30 PM
It there were only a couple of books about evolution, i suggest you actually read one.
3/2/2008 1:56:18 PM
No one special
This has to be someone trolling, right guys?
3/2/2008 2:18:54 PM
I don't consider the Bible a best seller because most people that buy one don't actually read it cover to cover. If they did, there would be fewer who followed it literally I think (or hope).
I don't think this is a troll. I personally made that same argument when I was a Christian and was quite serious about it.

"MochaJunkie, I agree with your reasoning.
Harry Potter is another best-seller, translated into over 50 languages and over 300 million copies sold world-wide.
This totally backs my unwavering belief in flying broomsticks, dragons, and magic spells."
"ty! someone understands what i was trying to say!
((i like harry potter but i dont believe in that stuff! its just an interesting book..))"

"it would take alot more faith to believe in evolution then in Creation."
Uh, yeah. I don't think so. See, there's this really cool stuff called "evidence" that people called "scientists" have that they can use to show evolution works just like they say it does. Not only that, evolution happens whether or not anyone believes in it.
"Cause I mean we have this best seller book that says creation is true. and only a couple of books that claim evolution is true."
Try a real bookstore, not your local Christian bookstore that only sells propaganda. Hell, even a library would have many books on the subject written by people well qualified to do so, unlike your Christian bookstore where they have economists, engineers and people with shady credentials writing about how evolution isn't possible.

Bestseller = more people cough up money for it
This does not make the contents of the book true
3/2/2008 2:38:53 PM
yeah... only a couple thousand.
3/2/2008 2:42:39 PM
Usually story books are more sold than science books...
3/2/2008 3:10:14 PM
I'm going to base my life solely off of best sellers.
The DaVinci Code seems to be the starting point, you see, there's a guy who died on a museum floor and he provided a clue to a secret message which provided another clue and so on. It book says so, so this code must be true, and it IS a best seller after all.

Someone has never been in the biology section of a proper library.
3/2/2008 4:12:20 PM
So the Da Vinci Code wins by vox populi?
Evolution requires less faith, because faith insists on what it hopes to be true no matter what challenges are set before it. Evolution incorporates those new impediments into a model that accomodates them.
3/2/2008 4:22:12 PM
Yes, Vox Populi (had to look it up) seems to be the argument for a Christian society in America today: "most people follow that faith so it must be true!"
That and scientists have no problem with being proven wrong, or challenges or real debate or criticism. Christians have a problem with all of that because being proven wrong means that they spent years or decades being wrong. Can't have that now can they? Science doesn't mind, Copernicus (Earth revolves around Sun) was crazy at first, but results ultimately prevailed.

Someone lives in a bubble.
3/2/2008 4:36:40 PM
He's actually right, it takes a Hell of a lot of faith to believe in Evolution then just suddenly believe in creation instead. I mean you've got all this evidence for evolution getting in the way for one thing.
3/2/2008 4:39:21 PM
Following your logic, we should throw ourselves into the arms of the first guy who is attractive to us, judging at the fact that romantic novels are bestsellers too. And anyway, what's "faith" then?, a matter of selling?. In that case, the rapture would be false. Only a crappy collection of books which glorify that nonsense.
3/2/2008 4:44:11 PM
So truth is based on best selling books?
OMG Harry Potter is real! It's a best selling book!
All the stuff Stephen King wrote about - real, he's a best seller!
Wasn't "A Brief History of Time" a best seller? Doesn't that make Stephen Hawkings right?
Science books don't tend to be best sellers because they are dry and not something your average commuter pulls out to read on the train.

To quote Orwell "sanity is not statistical"
Just because you have the numbers, doesn't mean you are any more true.
