Quote# 35679

it would take alot more faith to believe in evolution then in Creation. 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.

Blue Lithium

Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker et al.
Steven Pinker's How The Mind Works
Darwin's Origin of Species
Matt Ridley's Genome and [/i]The Red Queen[/i]
John Maynard Smith's The Theory Of Evolution

That's more that just a couple, isn't it?

Doctor Whom

Let's assume arguendo that a popularity contest determines scientific truth. If we go by the number of people who have actually read a book, then the Bible is a dismal failure.

I'm so glad that you're basing your faith off of which books are bestsellers. That really makes me think that you're an authority on creationism.

Actually no, there is only one evolution with minor variations in theory, with fossil, geological, and biological proofs. There are over 200 different creation stories associated with different various religions and cultures, each requiring a different leap of faith without a single shred of scientific proof. Yours is simply one of the many out there.

Sorry, but little can be learned from books that are purposely left lying in the nightstands of motels.

3/2/2008 5:51:44 PM


Yes, but those books have evidence. And authors using modern scinetific technology. With Phds. And peer reviewed articles.

3/2/2008 6:01:05 PM


Strange, I don't see the bible listed on any of the recorded bestseller lists. How about that?

3/2/2008 6:05:39 PM


and truth is obviously decided by the number of books published on that subject ...

3/2/2008 6:18:25 PM


Actually the Bible is the best selling book of all times.

That fact alone doesn't make it right.

3/2/2008 6:19:27 PM


Even if I agreed with this guy, his comment wouldn't make sense. I'm pretty sure "only a couple of books" is still more in the way of evidence than a single best-seller.

3/2/2008 6:38:13 PM


We have one book! You only have a couple!

Fundie maths.

jesus-face tortilla

Dianetics is a best-seller, too. AND it's been translated into a jillion languages. And it has celebrity shills!

This kind of logic enturbulates my Thetan.

1. We have a bunch of books.
2. We have fossils that somewhat prove our claims.

3/2/2008 6:55:10 PM


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

We actually have those. They are called pastors.

3/2/2008 7:08:13 PM


Only a couple? Which planet are you on again?!

3/2/2008 7:08:14 PM

Um... wow


3/2/2008 7:32:01 PM


Apply directly to the forehead.


3/2/2008 7:32:31 PM


Oh, I see. I think I'll base my life around The Firm, then. I mean, I'm not a lawyer, but there must be some mafia I can steal from anyway, right? And hopefully expose them in the process, so that when I lay in Cayman Brac drinking ruhm I don't have to fear about random people jumping out of the trees and blowing my brains off.

3/2/2008 8:00:39 PM


Yes, we do outnumber you.


Not to mention Francis Collin's The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief which states that the universe was definitely created and God does take a hand in our daily life, but refuting evolution in the face of the evidence is simply insane.

3/2/2008 8:12:05 PM

Broken Egg

By your logic, we still have more books than you do.

So, yeah, we still win.

3/2/2008 8:30:28 PM


hahahahaha. Tard.

Edwardo, the patron saint of douche-baggery

I have to call poe on this one, because otherwise it would mean that the human race has entered a new level of stupidity that I previously thought unattainable. I'm talking "Idiocracy" stupid, folks.

I never thought of it that way. Cross my hert and hope to die, I never thought of it that way.
