Quote# 364

One more thing: Evolutionists; Do you really believe Humans evolved from one celled or multi celled organisms, then to amphibians, then to birds, alligators, then monkeys etc?

Or do you only believe in the evolution that deals with Natural Selection and adaptation dictated by environment, therefore Humans bypassed many different species? Like passed the reptilian phase and straight from Amphibian to bird to monkey, etc.?

Do you really think the world is that old? It would take billions and billions of years to evolve to human, Don't forget some knowledgable scientists believe the world to be quite young and also have evidence to possibly support their claims.

\"some\"

two is some.

\"knowledgable scientists\"

Knowledgable in science I hope.

\"believe the world to be quite young\"

So what?

\"and also have evidence to possibly support their claims.\"

Possibly? WOW! That is some irrefutable evidence right there! I'm sold.

You know, for a fundie, this is almost sane. I mean, he actually seems to understand, at least on a basic level, what evolution means (unlike the \"if we came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?\" crowd).

However, there is no known evidence of a young earth, and any \"scientist\" who believes in a young earth despite this lack of evidence is not a particularly knowledgable one.

Right.....care to give me any names of scientists (not theologians mind, real scientists) that believe the earth is young?

In a word, yes. Yes I do. To all of it. Because I said so. And thus, circular and dreadfully idiotic logic ensues.

Iron Maiden...not exactly a humane way of torture, not that torture is humane.

And yet many Christians preach \"love\" and \"forgiveness\"... Despite the entirety of the Bible saying otherwise.

Evolution can't happen because it'd take billions of years, and the earth is only 6,000 years old! Haha, Creation: 1 Evolution: 0!

"some knowledgable scientists"

Whom you never name. So we have to take your word for it that the scientists you are referring to are knowledgeable. We don't even know what dicipline they're in.

"also have evidence to possibly support their claims."

I'm not even sure what you're trying to say here.

This says it all about the priorities in his argument. "Young Earth" is first and foremost 'supported' by faith and belief. Real evidence is secondary, and unneccesary. As long as a fundie has belief, it would be a nice thing if there is any (far-fetched and fabricated) 'evidence' to support his faith. But this is not mandatory. Faith alone is more than enough for a fundie.

Result of the indoctrination of countless centuries: "Faith is the most important thing!". Sorry to say that, but faith alone is completely worthless.

Kent Hovind, Ray Comfort and Ken Ham are neither knowledgeable nor scientists.

What else have you got?

I believe both. At least the gist of what your saying. Evoloution isn't preplanned, we didn't go through stages, we just happened to spring from an Ape species that made that one fateful mutation that was all that was left.
Also, one category of Animals did not live on the earth at a time, which you'd know if you just looked around you.
And yes, the world is billions and billions of years old. "Theology" is not a scientific degree, and there is no such evidence.
PS: Is she suggesting that all Animals are evolving into Humans? 'cause that's fucking stupid.

"It would take billions and billions of years to evolve to human'
It's starting to catch on...

"Don't forget some knowledgable scientists believe the world to be quite young and also have evidence to possibly support their claims."
...or not. By the way, creationist "scientists" don't count.

@ Lord Mu:
I think she is. I'm pretty sure she thinks evolution is a guided/directed/aiming progression through checkpoints like "bird" and "alligator", eventually reaching "human".
I'm giving Pokemon a dirty look right now. I like the games, just not the misconceptions they can spread about evolution.

Honey, you need to go back to fifth grade Biology and study evolution again, because it doesn't say anything like that.

The world is quite young, yes; only about 4.5 billion years old. The Universe is much older; about 13 billion years old. That is not what I think; that is the consensus of all creditable scientists in the field.

A scientist is not going to say that s/he can "possibly support" her/his claim; s/he'll be laughed out of the lab. You have to positively support it, and others have to be able to do the same tests and end up with the same result. Why don't these "knowledgeable scientists" present their evidence – finally - so that it can be checked with the scientific method, which is the only way to determine if the evidence does indeed support their claim. Or, was this what they tried to do in the Kitzmiller vs. Dover trial? “Possibly” went through the garbage chute, pretty fast, there...

Matbe the most irritating thing about Creationists is there this idea that those who don't even believe in evolution insist they're the ones who get to decide how long it would take.

Not the scientists, biologists, archeologists or historians working, sometimes crosschecking each other to get an idea of how the world was a thousand years ago, or ten thousand, or a million or more. Nope, only theologians, priests or little Joe Bible boy can determine these things.

Like the Irreducible Complexity strawman they threw in years ago, THEY get to decide what's TOO complex to have evolved. Behe invented the concept but he's been forced to admit his example has failed, of course, being a creationist he's dishonest enough to still push it.

"Do you really believe Humans evolved from one celled or multi celled organisms, then to amphibians, then to birds, alligators, then monkeys etc?"

I know we did. No 'Belief' required.

That's the beauty of Evidence, it proves things infinitely better than just taking bullshit fairy tales purely on spec, and saying 'Okay, that sounds credible because it requires no thinking, certainly of the critical sort.

'Theories': They have a rather nasty habit of becoming facts. After all...:



...just ask the Church of England; they openly admit that the Bible is mostly fable & metaphor. Question(s): if [/Spartan Laconic Wit] the Bible is supposed to be the literal 'Word of God', to be fully obeyed literally, word-for-word, letter-for letter, why did the defence in Kitzmiller vs. Dover have to cloak their 'literal' Bible under the facade of (un)'Intelligend Design' (worse-than) pseudoscience? Surely the 'Truth' of Genesis' literal 'facts' should shine through, destroying any possible critical thinking/cynicism-based questioning? And above all, if the Bible is 'fact' as you Cre(a)ti(o)nists say it is, why is Darwin buried in the C-of-E's Westminster Abbey? Someone who, post-discoveries, was an agnostic to his death, yet in his early years was in training to join the Church of England's clergy, no less.

'YEC'? 'Cre(a)ti(o)nism'? (un)'Intelligent Design'? The Professors of Theology in the C-of-E (and thus they know infinitely more about your beliefs than you do) disagree, don't bother them about it.
