Quote# 3800

What exactly do I have now [to falsify evolution with].... I have an interest, 5 pages of a paper done, 2 DVDs, 6 books, about 100 websites, and a 1" binder loaded with evolutionary comebacks. I'm getting more all the time. Do you want to know why I am confident? It's called faith, faith in God.

It's sad when people collect all this material, not to learn, but to argue. Seems like a waste of time to me.

Go take that material, present it to a real, experienced biologist, and watch him refute all of it.

My bet is it'd take him about three hours tops. And that only because of the sheer volume of material.

If he actually believes that is enough evidence to truly refute the theory of evolution, he has absolutely no idea how much work goes into the formation of a proper scientific theory.

Totally. It's not like he or she is learning about evolution or seeking to understand it - just looking for "comebacks" to defend her preconceived conclusions. I bet half of that binder is filled with strawmen, i.e., "evolution says that an elephant mates with a mouse and out pops a penguin!"

And if he or she was really "confident" in their "faith, faith in God," why would they need a 1" (ooh) binder loaded with comebacks? Why would they feel the need to "prove" everyone else wrong?

Also, "I have an interest" WTH?

Wow, that much eh? That must take up quite an impressive space. probably, ooh... a whole corner of your desk, maybe a foot or so high? Ok compare that to... let's see... what have we got handy... ah yes, this'll do... The entire Smithsonian Museum in Washington,DC. Or the Natural History Museum in London, England. Or any major university in the world. Or any major bookshop in the world. Or a collection of scientists all called Steve. Or...or... Ah what's the use ?

Seeing as he's made up his mind that goddidit, why does he even bother? The old "I've made up my mind, don't confude me with the facts" maxim comes to mind.

Well, we have literally millions of pages of paper, written by some of the most brilliant experts in the field, several hundreds of DVD's, thousands of books, tens of thousands of sites, and binders that, if stacked, would rise many times higher than the Empire Estate, AND all of it is growing at a comparatively exponential rate. But even if none of that was available, still the ToE would seem more rational than the KJV. It's called common sense. *ding* Next.

That F in 2nd grade biology must really hurt.

That's nice. Get back to use when you have a paper published in a peer reviewed journal.

It's called lack of self-awareness.
