Quote# 50004

Darwin attacked the church with saying God was not the Creator and that man evolved from animals, specifically the monkey. Darwin and his father had no reason for the origin of the species except to disprove God. Fraud and lies upheld their view for many years until DNA came along and exposed them.

the same DNA that shows us 99.9% identical to chimps genetically?

So now Darwin's dad is getting blamed too? What did he do?

PROTIP: No, "I think differently from you" is not an attack.

One of Darwin's relatives (I believe it was his grandfather) came damn close to discovering evolutionary theory himself, iirc.

1 Evolution does not prove the existence or nonexistence of God

2 Humans did not evolve from monkeys, instead we have a common ancestor

3 DNA is the strongest evidence for evolution

Where the hell did he pull this from?

DNA evidence supports the theory of evolution.

Next!

Fraud and lies upheld their view for many years until DNA came along and exposed them.
Say what now?

"Fraud and lies upheld their view for many years until DNA came along and exposed them."

Oh yes. Genetics completely destroys Darwin's theory. Yup, yup.

Unless you're not a complete fucking idiot that is, in which case you can see how it does nothing but support Darwin's idea.

Darwin never said there was no God or that God wasn't the creator. He just said living things share a common ancestor. DNA has confirmed evolution, not destroyed it. DNA confirms humans' common ancestry with other apes by pretty much the same techniques used in paternity testing or the DNA tests on CSI.

We have the DNA. We win.

citation seriously fucking needed...

Uhhh...DNA only confirmed evolution. Methinks that you don't know what you're talking about.

False. It was the church's idea to antagonize evolution with the biblical creation. There should be no controversy between the two.

Fundy Christians have no reason for the KJV Bible except to prove they are batshit insane, deluded morons. Fraud and lies upheld their view for many years until DNA came along and exposed them.

Problem solved, dumbass!

No, the Church attacked Darwin for saying that creatures evolved to suit their environments.

Discovery of DNA supported Darwin's contention that species evolved from other species.

P.S. You're a fool.

Thats funny..last time I heard Darwin was a Christian when he wrote that book..he just wasnt a dumb ass Cretin like you are. It was the death of his daughter that (rightfully) caused him to become an agnostic.

You see, we atheists have many logical and rational arguments for not believing. But Christians arent the only ones allowed to use emotional arguments as well.. we are human after all and I am not above using the emotional and the rational to make my case.

DNA didn't exist in Darwin's time?

Well, shit...you learn something new every day.

[Darwin attacked the church with saying God was not the Creator...]

Care to provide a citation?

[...and that man evolved from animals, specifically the monkey.]

Apes.

[Darwin and his father had no reason for the origin of the species except to disprove God.]

Wrong, and wrong.

[Fraud and lies upheld their view for many years...]

What "fraud and lies", specifically?

[...until DNA came along and exposed them.]

By "exposed", you mean "supported", right?

a mind far far away

It's ironic, that the majority of the world's Christians accept the view of "theistic evolution", which is, that evolution happened, but that God was controlling the process. This is the official dogma of the Roman Catholic church, the majority view in the Eastern Orthodox church, and also held by mainstream and liberal Christians. It's actually only a small minority of Christians who think that the first two chapters of Genesis are to be understood literally, and this view didn't come about until AFTER Darwin put forth his ideas. This particular Christian idea, however, just happens to be the group with the loudest, most obnoxious voices. And they need to be put in their place. They need to understand that not even most CHRISTIANS take their distorted, irrational, idiotic point of view.

The DNA that completely supports evolution? WHUT.
