Mmm. Raw meat. Delicious.

Not really very religious at all. Just stupid.

"If science was worth a cotton-picking penny they'd be doing all kinds of these types of experiments on animals like rodents or cats or whatever to validate or invalidate the findings of Dr. Pottenger..."
They do experiment like that. Like, all the time. What rock do you live under?

I don't get how StuporSport links nutrition experiments to evolution. wut?

"Cats need a particular kind of food."
Seriously, you think THAT would be a revolutionary new idea?
You're wild and goofy. Ahawhawhaw- look at that, I can string two adjectives together. Cute.

The way Stuporsport talks, you'd swear scientists sit around all day, drinking Chardonnay, plotting new ways to undermine reality as we know it.

Ok where to even begin with this? So much crap, so little time.
First, the site this guy gives makes no such claim that the problems were genetic. In fact the site says, "only the tendency or potential of a disease is passed on from parents to offspring."
Second, atthe bottom of the web page is this, "Statements regarding the nutritional information or products presented on this website have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Any product or information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."
Third, we have epigenetics which scientists have known causes the diet of the grand parent to affect the health of the offspring
and last, none of this has anything to do with evolution as no mutation or new traits were caused by the poor diet. IF the poorly fed cats had developed adaptations to deal with the poor diet, that would have been a blow to evolution. But that didn't happen.
In short, massive fail. And yes I have learned to doubt supersport.

what's a "heritable" disease?
also, "....they don't know how to do any experiment that might contradict their dingbat, non-intellectual theory that says everything we see around us just happened to form because it popped up by dumb chance in the right place, at the right time and in the right conditions..", who's "they"?

How do cat diets relate to evolution?
And you DO relize that cats are not humans...right?

What is he talking about?
10/23/2008 5:15:46 PM
So eating steak makes cats gay?
This is why they always say to repeat your thesis 3 or 4 times... I don't even know what you're arguing about here.

"Increasingly abnormal activities occurred between the same sexes"
So, homosexuality is caused by bad nutrition now? But, but, I thought it was a matter of choice, or demonic possession, or the result of being abused as a child, or...(insert any other half-baked, bigoted, superstitious, pseudoscientific claptrap).
10/23/2008 5:20:04 PM
StuporSpurt dishonestly using out-of-context quotes from outdated studies to attempt to prop up the strawman of evolution he's created because he's apparently too goddamn stupid to understand the real science behind it?! You don't say!
This fucker's a broken record.
10/23/2008 5:23:35 PM
Think I'm gonna read all that blat? When you grow up, kid, some adult will be interested in talking to you. Not before.
10/23/2008 5:55:24 PM
Ay yi yi.
Please, I beg you, read The Selfish Gene and then tell me if you think evolution is wild and goofy.
10/23/2008 6:06:09 PM
Supersport is calling other people dingbat?
And claiming homosexuality is caused by bad nutrition seems to say liberal welfare programs can prevent it. Maybe the reason we have so many homosexuals is because Ronald Reagan cut off money to WIC and food stamps?
10/23/2008 6:16:29 PM
Wait..you say science isnt worth a cotton picking penny in one sentence, yet the NEXT sentence (im not sure, it may be the same sentence, your grammar sucks) has you saying that all of the science you support is also supported by other scientists.
10/23/2008 6:24:24 PM
REAL science, you know, the sort without control groups or peer review.
When will I learn not to doubt you: when you stop making shit up.
10/23/2008 6:26:30 PM
This guy is way off his rocker.
Oh wait, it's Supersport. Nevermind.
10/23/2008 6:31:07 PM
The irony of SuperSport posting on TalkRational was almost enough to blow my meter to bits. Fortunately, the new Irony Fault Interrupter I installed tripped and saved it.
10/23/2008 6:34:36 PM
Uh... yeah. What does cat diet have to do with evolution?
10/23/2008 6:42:30 PM
Bad food is bad. Good food is good. This science stuff isn't as tough as people think.
10/23/2008 7:20:21 PM
I'm familiar with the Pottenger cat studies, from years of listening to "alternative" health wackos on the radio. But how the hell is this connected to evolution or atheism?
10/23/2008 7:30:00 PM
This is a classic case of "get the hell off of my side, you're making it look bad". On the behalf of sane raw dog and cat diet proponents everywhere, I disown this guy.
10/23/2008 7:36:45 PM
'Increasingly abnormal activities occurred between the same sexes '
Well, that could be anything.
