Of course it does, its a windmill for fundtards like you to attempt to tilt.
6/11/2008 10:24:57 PM
Except for a lot of medicine, you know...
6/11/2008 10:25:15 PM
Yeah, how's it gonna help me drive a fork lift at the warehouse in Bumblefuck, Alabama? Huh?
6/11/2008 10:27:02 PM
That's it. No vaccinations for you.

[the theory of evolution has no impact on my daily life, it doesn't produce anything useful for humanity]
This statement is absolutely true in nearly every aspect--except for the words.

@Darn: You crack'd me up.

How the heck could anyone ... ?
Oh. It's Yahoo Answers. Then never mind.

Allegory for Jesus
You realize that your first premise does not support your second, right?
Things can be useful for humanity without directly affecting our everday lives (e.g. cures for cancer). Hell, it could be of incredible importance and we may not even notice that it is helping us and a factor in our everday life (e.g. water purification).
Just because we are unknowledgable, well-to-do ingrates does not mean that things we do not appreciate are not helping us.

Then again, neither do you. Neither does, say, wasps. Just because it isn't useful for humanity, doesn't mean it isn't useful.

I'd hate to see how you live.

Never had antibiotics, vaccines or insulin (if you're a diabetic)?
You must be incredibly healthy or just an ignorant liar.
6/11/2008 11:36:19 PM
It's done little or nothing for me my whole life (52) either, directly. My middle son's a Diabetic and would have been dead at twelve if not for studies and science closely linked to evolutionary theory.
Some people reach 100 without need of medical science, most don't
6/11/2008 11:41:40 PM
Medicine and vaccines are of the devil.

Wait till you see the new movie that's coming out. It's called "Darwin Dances!" and it will knock your socks off.

In addition to this being so very wrong, what does he have against pure science?

"the theory of evolution has no impact on my daily life, it doesn't produce anything useful for humanity"
Except for vaccines, antibiotics, higher crop yields, pretty much all of genetics, public health policies, gene function prediction which aids in new drug discoveries, epidemiology to track the spread of diseases, Ribotyping to find previously unknown infectious agents in humans (notice how most of these are medically related and thus directly impact you in some way or other?), "engineered" bacteria to dispose of harmful chemical waste, genetic algorithms to design components cheaper and faster, and on and on and on...

watchtower guys "we don't take transfusion" and their kids hapilly die in hospital.
@fmko in this case answer is life
6/12/2008 6:20:19 AM
Of course it does, it promotes atheism! [obnoxious smiley-face]
6/12/2008 6:51:44 AM
@Old Viking: Are tickets still available?
6/12/2008 8:52:42 AM
Except vaccines, epidemiology, understanding of genetic diseases, not to mention optimised, more efficient tools and machinery. (genetic algorithms, anyone?)
6/12/2008 11:39:01 AM
Just the study of genetics and everything related...

(*swipes some material from Horsefeathers -- thanks for doing the research! -- and combines it with another bit appropriate for the occasion*)
Right! After all, apart from vaccines, antibiotics, higher crop yields, pretty much all of genetics, public health policies, gene function prediction which aids in new drug discoveries, epidemiology to track the spread of diseases, Ribotyping to find previously unknown infectious agents in humans, "engineered" bacteria to dispose of harmful chemical waste, genetic fingerprinting to help catch the guilty and exonerate the innocent, and genetic algorithms to design components cheaper and faster,
have the Romans --- I mean,
has evolution ever done for us?
BEST. "FIXED." EVER.
