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.

Oh nevermind the evidence we have a book written by bronze age goat herders that tells us everything we need to know.

Right a couple of HUNDRED.

And argument from popularity ftl.

3/2/2008 10:08:47 PM


Popularity does not veto reality.

3/2/2008 10:16:14 PM


One book claims creation to be true. Several hundred books, essays, a papers make the same statement about evolution.

3/2/2008 11:11:29 PM


Yeah its not about the logic of whats in the book. Its about how much money you make when you sell it.

3/3/2008 12:01:48 AM


so there are MORE books proving evolution than there are creationism?

3/3/2008 1:48:02 AM


But...you have one...and from what you are saying, we have more than that. The word 'only' does not mean what you seem to think it does.

This poster had better be 12 or younger, or a poe. There's no valid explanation otherwise.

But we have millions of facts that say evolution is true, but only a book of fairy tales that say creation is true, so you lose.

I don't know how many more of these I can read without my brains liquifying.

One, the books on evolution, which are more than two, are best sellers in universities and academic environment. And following your logic, we should believe Jesus was married(Da Vinci Code is a best-seller)

Septic Sceptic

Essentially every book on biology, zoology or paleontology written since 1859 has been a book on evolution, since the theory is at the core of all of these fields.

The username "MochaJunkie" sounds an awful lot like Camp Mojache, a Horde outpost in World of Warcraft.

3/4/2008 2:11:16 AM


So you're basically saying you have one book, we have 2?
That makes sense to you? Really?

3/4/2008 12:31:24 PM


When somebody says they 'believe' in evolution, they are not using the word in the same sense that you do.
They mean that on the basis of the evidence they have formed the judgement that the theory is a true description of reality. You will note that in fact there is NO 'Faith' there.
It takes NO faith to 'believe' in Evolution.
To suggest that the truth of a story should be judged on the number of books about it is propose a way to be absolutely wrong on every issue.

There is some interesting evidence concerning the evolution of "this bestseller book" into what it is today.

MochaJunkie's logic is ironclad.

Which is why I worship James Frey.

I've got 7 books on my book case that sold REALLY well, but I still don't think Hogwarts is a real place.

Whoever has LESS books wins?

The Teapot is right, I knew it!!!

Popular does not equal correct.

4/8/2008 3:43:09 AM


We have hundreds if not thousands of books that give evidence for evolution - many of them best sellers. And the big difference between OUR books and your book is that ours are willing to change when new evidence is presented, while yours is static and outdated.

4/8/2008 4:12:47 AM


and only a couple of books that claim evolution is true.
Last time I checked a couple was more than one.

Also, evolution has an overwhelming amount of evidence to back it up, the bible dosen't.

4/14/2008 5:06:55 AM


Creationism requires faith, evolution uses facts.

The bible has supposedly sold up to a total of 6 billion copies (all versions combined, and there are lots of them). Harry Potter books have sold about 400 million copies (all versions and there are lots of them).

Harry potter books have only been around for 10 years. The Bible has been around for about a hundred times that long.

Pretty shit statistics for the bible eh!

4/5/2009 6:28:55 AM


Should also mention that I have 3 Bibles that have been gifts! So me, an atheist owns 3 copies of the Bible!

The gift thing dilutes the significance of the sales quite a bit I imagine!
