Quote# 52610

In yet another debate about the validity of Evolution...

There is more than a mountain of evidence to support Creation; It's called the Universe and all that is within it. That it is created, is self evident.
.
Just because you can't understand it doesn't make it any less true. Perhaps your not as smart as you'd like to think.


He is then asked:Examples of this evidence, please.

1.Open your eyes.
2.Look around you.
3.Choose something.
.
There is your evidence.

Oh God. That wanker. I have conversed with him at length. The best he's got is what I like to call the Once More Theory of No It Isn't. He claims there's no evidence for evolution, then when you tell him about genetics, nested hierarchy, ring species, observed speciation etc, he simply repeats that there's no evidence for evolution.

'Self evident' doesn't mean what you think it means. Or 'Evidence' for that matter.

1) Eyes open
2) Looked around
3) Chose my own retinas.

No intelligent designer would cobble that together.
This is evidence that once_more created the universe.

So his argument is basically: GODDIDIT!!!

@Quasarsphere
"he simply repeats that there's no evidence for evolution."
You say that like he's the only one who does this. This tactic is Evolution Denial 101, deny any and all evidence presented even if it makes sense.

Also, like how once_more never actually points out how the evidence supports his conclusion.

a mind far far away

In other words: "We believe everything is created by god. The fact that these things exist is all the proof we need. We don't need any science or real evidence, because that things exist is all evidence. You're an idiot for not understanding this."

I don't know about you guys, but my universe is a tad bigger than a mountain.

The universe may appear to be created but appearances can be deceiving. The evidence overwhelmingly supports evolution but it is pointless to argue with such an ignorant fuck as this guy. God himself could come down from the heavens and state unequivocally that evolution is a fact of life on this planet and this numbnuts wouldn't even believe god. So fuck him.

Saying that it's self evident does not make it so.

UNDERPANTS GNOME LOGIC!!

Proof of God:
1. The existence of something.
2. ???
3. PROOF!

[There is more than a mountain of evidence to support Creation; It's called the Universe and all that is within it.]

The existence of the Universe is not proof that it was created.

[That it is created, is self evident.]

You're begging the question, and no, it isn't self-evident.

[Just because you can't understand it doesn't make it any less true.]

The same is true for you and evolution.

[Perhaps your not as smart as you'd like to think.]

You're redirecting. The problem is not our intelligence or our understanding of your evidence. The problem is that you don't have any evidence.

Just as self evident as the earth being flat. And just as wrong.

OK, I see a white sandy beach. Why is the beach covered with white sand? Because God put it there? No. It evolved. The ocean beats against rocks until one by one, they dissolve (mutation). Quartz is one of the hardest common minerals. It's white or golden colored. Eventually, quartz is almost the only thing left (survival of the fittest, or in this case, the hardest).

Harlequin Baby Syndrome is evidence for your creator? I'm not so sure you thought out this whole line of reasoning.

Recite the bible verses that says God created the universe.
He only created the heaven and the earth, but not the other planets or the black holes or anything else in the universe.

The universe itself creates a hole in the bible.

I choose origin of species,Wait that's full of quite a bit of proof FOR evolution isn't it?

If you only have proof "i feel" or "i just know", you actually have no proof at all...
