Quote# 44077

Ok then let me use another scenario. A computer when it was first created was not so great. Then over the years they got better till now and will probably get even better. Without useing any quantum physics I can figure that many people had to use thier thought and energy to create it and make it better. I think God used his thought and energy to make all creatures including the apes and I think he created us uniquely. All the cool creatures out there prove God is very smart and powerful. I feel I would be insulting God by believing that I evolved rather that came about by his unique design skills. That is my opinion and I didn't have to insult you to get it across. And you don't need to respond because all your knowledge will never convince me otherwise. Especially how your coming off like that, I just don't want to hear it.

"All the cool creatures out there prove God is very smart and powerful."

So what do tapeworms prove? What does mold prove? What does my appendix prove? What do roaches prove? What does poison ivy prove?

Poor English, horrid ideas, avoidance of logic.

Yep, it's fundie.

@agentCDE: Those (along with ticks and mosquitoes) prove that God is a douchebag.

"I feel I would be insulting God by believing that I evolved rather that came about by his unique design skills."

You feel it would be an insult to your all-knowing God to believe that he didn't get it right the first time and instead had to tweak and meddle repeatedly to force some desired outcome?

From my point of view, Darwinian evolution is a very elegant system. There's no meddling required. It doesn't even need anything special for it to happen! It's a simple result of inherited characteristics and competition between organisms. If I did believe in an omniscient sky-daddy that created the universe, I'd give him full credit for coming up with such an elegant system.

Your idea of a meddling god is clearly a very human concept.

I love arguments like this. Type out a bunch of bullshit, then say 'knowledge won't convince' her.

You do insult us, but your claim of proof or knowledge is irrelavent. That and your overweening sense of self-righteousness, that YOU are right, and everyone who disagrees with you, or had proof to the contrary is wrong.

BTW, a closed mind gathers no intelligence.

You know, if I was god and I designed a species that populated a small planet, I'd be proud to see them thinking for themselves rather than wasting time bowing down to me. The way you present your god makes him/her sound like a capricious 5-year-old douchebag.

Regarding God's "cool creatures", what was he thinking when he created Naegleria fowleri, known as the brain eating amoeba that attaches itself to the inside of your nose and quickly burrows through your brain.

It proves nearly always fatal in infected humans.

I feel I would be insulting God by believing that I evolved rather that came about by his unique design skills.

(a) It takes a lot more skills to design a self-evolving system that automatically adjusts to conditions than to build a unique product. Why couldn't God have designed evolution?

(b) If we came about by God's unique design skills, how come our retina is backwards? Why do animals without color vision have damaged genes for color vision?

(c) If God is such a great designer, why are the great majority of His designs now extinct?

Too bad you have neither.

"Ok then let me use another scenario. A computer when it was first created was not so great."

They were "great" compared to doing long, boring and reasonably complex calculations on your fingers.

"Then over the years they got better till now and will probably get even better. Without useing any quantum physics I can figure that many people had to use thier thought and energy to create it and make it better."

What the hell does quantum physics have to do with the realization that the development of computer systems takes many people to accomplish?

"I think God used his thought and energy to make all creatures including the apes and I think he created us uniquely."

I'm fond of telling people like you that you can believe any damned fool thing you like, just don't expect the rest of us to go along with it. Or not to point and laugh at you.

"All the cool creatures out there prove God is very smart and powerful."

Dude! Exactly! Like, all those really awesome parasites!

"I feel I would be insulting God by believing that I evolved rather that came about by his unique design skills."

According to your religion, your god has existed since before the universe, created everything known to exist and would be so far beyond our pitiful human understanding that I really can't believe such a being either gives a flying fuck what you think or would be insulted by it if he did actually care what you thought.

Stop projecting your feelings onto your supposedly omnimax deity. I really doubt, should it exist, that it would be insulted by anything you could do, say or think.

"That is my opinion and I didn't have to insult you to get it across. And you don't need to respond because all your knowledge will never convince me otherwise."

Closed minds are wonderfully handy to have, aren't they?

"A computer when it was first created was not so great. Then over the years they got better till now and will probably get even better."

This is actually better arguement for evolution than creationism. At first computers were basic and primitive. Then, as people learned, developed their scientific knowledge, and adapted their thinking to new technologies, the computers advanced and became better. Just like the development of all tool use by humans and other primates.

Observations of objective reality are unaffected by your personal feelings.

I am glad that Gabby realizes that his/her god is just as smart as the scientists who created and developed the computer.

There are other scientists who were as smart or smarter, if he/she cares to look. Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Heisenberg or
Hawking come to mind.

Doesn't seem like a fundie. Even if you know they are wrong, they aren't threatening or insulting someone, just saying what they think and asking someone to be nice.

Computers can't reproduce. Computers aren't alive. Computers aren't in a natural arms race between predator and prey which drives 90% of all evolution.

It's a good thing we evolved with amazing dexterous fingers that fit so comfortably into the ear canals. Otherwise, Gabby would have to go around with a banana sticking out of each side of her head.

"All the cool creatures out there prove God is very smart and powerful."

Yeah, making the shins so vulnerable to pain was ingenious. As was putting the male's vulnerable testicles on the outside of the body. And making certain body parts prone to infection.

Sigh.
