Quote# 46056

Why do you believe in things without any evidence?
[apparently this question is an "adolescent taunt"]

Evidence, eh? You want evidence? I look at the Universe and I see an ironclad case for creation. This didn't happen by accident, it is the result of intelligent design. If you can't see that by just looking, then I don't like my chances of proving it to you by vaunting the miniscule knowledge that I have of the evidence. Try making a man from dirt and spit. No NO! FIRST, you have to make your own DIRT. That's GOD's dirt. Make your own, you copycat. Trying to make yourself out to be smarter than God? Make your own DIRT from NOTHING by just saying it's so.

This is so funny it deserves two.

@John: *snicker* Three minutes. I wouldn't advertize that.

I'm trying to see how evolution is more degrading to humanity than the idea that we're cobbled together out of "dirt and spit."

"This didn't happen by accident"
Yeah, ask your parents. They didn't want an idiot.

So the fact I can't make my own dirt proves Creationism?

Bridging The Gap, you should receive a life sentence without the possibility of parole and be interned at your local elementary school for re-education and de-programming from your cult.

Try making a man from dirt and spit.

Why would I used dirt and spit? I can make a man with a woman and three minutes.

"I look at the Universe and I see an ironclad case for creation."

I look at the Universe and see that your argument is essentially a gut-level impression and not evidence.

"Evidence, eh? You want evidence?"

Yes, please.


"I look at the Universe and I see an ironclad case for creation."

Run any tests to get that result?


"This didn't happen by accident, it is the result of intelligent design."

Specifically, what experiments did you do to prove that?


"If you can't see that by just looking, then I don't like my chances of proving it to you by vaunting the miniscule knowledge that I have of the evidence."

I the conclusion is that obvious, why can't any of you present some credible evidence supporting it?

I AM impressed that you admit have almost no knowledge of the evidence. There IS no evidence, but I DO enjoy your admitting your lack of knowledge.



"Try making a man from dirt and spit."

I can't, no one can. People aren't made from dirt and spit. Don't you even realize you Bible says "dirt and breath?


"No NO! FIRST, you have to make your own DIRT. That's GOD's dirt. Make your own, you copycat."

Why not start by your proving that God exists, then we can decide if he made and/or owns the dirt.


"Trying to make yourself out to be smarter than God? Make your own DIRT from NOTHING by just saying it's so."

No, sir, I make myself out to be more REAL than God. God is your imaginary friend. I am not imaginary... nor your friend.

That's GOD's dirt. Make your own, you copycat.

Wow, that's impressive. Most people take 9 months to do that. Even longer if they're unlucky ;)

Whoa! He's totally right. I can definitely see the fnords.. er, I mean, design whenever I go looking for it.

ok, just created my very own dirt, ready to start life.
this is easy!

"God" didn't create dirt, you numbskull, earlier life forms created dirt!

Dirt is what you get when you let poop, dead leaves, etc. sit there and bi-degrade (under the action of bacteria) for a long enough time.

Before there was dirt, the dry land of Earth was basically rock and sand, kinda like the regolith of the Moon or Mars.

So, rationalist shit is the dirt that god used to make people like Bridging.

"Evidence, eh? You want evidence?"

It would certainly be nice.

"I look at the Universe and I see an ironclad case for creation. This didn't happen by accident, it is the result of intelligent design."

Arguments from personal incredulity aren't evidence for anything but lack of imagination.

"If you can't see that by just looking, then I don't like my chances of proving it to you by vaunting the miniscule knowledge that I have of the evidence."

So, you have "miniscule knowledge" of the evidence but you're certain it's both valid and supports your position. That's what's called standing on shaky ground.

"Try making a man from dirt and spit. No NO! FIRST, you have to make your own DIRT. That's GOD's dirt. Make your own, you copycat. Trying to make yourself out to be smarter than God? Make your own DIRT from NOTHING by just saying it's so."

Hovind probably isn't the best person to be paraphrasing as it sounds even stupider than when he said it the first time.

Really? Cause I look at the universe and see that this shit is seriously fucked up.

Intelligent design? 99% of all species that have walked/swum/flew on this planet have become extinct. Doesn't sound too intelligent to me, but more random, like evolution.

You want evidence? I have evidence! I can see the evidence! The evidence was created by what I think it was created by! And if you can't see it, then I'm not going to bother arguing with you, so I give up and win by default!

Try replicating my argument!

No, wait, don't, because I'm using name-calling now! Trying to use non-sequitur arguments or something?!? *totally random conclusion*

I saw the words intelligent design and just stopped.

But didn't you know life begins at conception? :D

Wow. I've never actually seem someone shoot themselves in the foot before. I always thought it was a figure of speech.

Since the guy can read 3.47 blog entries per second, it's a shame he never got round to:
