Quote# 461

Dinosaurs and U.F.O.s are in there if you know where to look. DOn't ask me cause I don't study the bible and don't have the patience to look up stuff in the Hard cover, My digital Bible is at Church, and My PC bible is on the other computer. All things being equal I rather read Playboy."

"Evolution...Hmpph. Darrwin was trying to say that an Evolution of a species was that a "fitter" species always develop in any given environment. How his bigited statement that White men were beter than other men got turned into a theory that a species can turn into a new species is beyond me.

Ignoring the stupidity of his comment, this reminds me of that one time I heard from a religious person that it says in The Bible that T. Rex's lived like 3,000 years ago and ate watermelons, not other dinosaurs.

LMAO.

More libel against Darwin, repeated by someone who obviously hasn't read Darwin's writings, and blanket, baseless, false assertions about what's in the Bible, repeated by someone who admits he hasn't even read the Bible much (he might read it more if someone tells him about the Song of Solomon).

This twit has no knowledge of science, and his faith isn't even in God or the Bible, but in some preacher type who's lying to him about what is in it (and about what is in Darwin's writings).

Too bad Darwin didn't include racy pictures of naked women in On The Origin Of Species; this guy might have been an evolution expert by now.

Damn Yankee

National Geographic has pictures of naked women sometimes, and information on evolution is frequently featured. It's not much, but it should be a start.

That is not what Darwin said. "Race" in this context very clearly has no social connotation.

He believed very strongly that slavery and racism were wrong. Although he was quite sexist by current standards, he was pretty Fair For His Day. I refer you to Wikipedia.

Translation: Dinosaurs and UFOs are in the Bible, which I haven't read.

"Evolution...Hmpph. Darrwin was trying to say that an Evolution of a species was that a "fitter" species always develop in any given environment.
How his theory that a species can turn into a new species could be associated with the bigited statement that White men were beter than other men is beyond me.

As you're making the assertion, of course we are asking you where.

"Fitter" means "more adapted to", not "bigger and tougher". There are many former bad-ass species who have evolved into small, rather insignificant species. (I read a Cracked.com page about this a few weeks ago, I looked for it but can't find it. Yeah, I know, I'm not much better than Angel here, but at least I tried...)
There is nothing "bigited" with something being more adapted to a certain niche, than something else. In a very wet climate, species who tolerate humidity are more prosperous than those who like arid climates, and vice versa.

Who said anything about White men being better? There are still people of all skin-tones, right? We're all the same species. Around the equator it's good to have dark skin to protect from the sun. Around the arctic circles it's good to have light skin; as there is so little sunlight one needs to absorb as much as possible.

Edit. Eureka! I found the page on Cracked.com, I do have the patience, apparently.
