Quote# 52958

Why do we all grow old and die instead of getting better and better as secular evolutionists suggest has taken place for millions of years?

Our lives are only extended by a precious few years because of so-called scientific breakthroughs...

Yet the very essence of evolution theory is contradicted by our certain mortality...

This makes the promise of heaven and salvation all the more real and attractive...

That's it. It's fucken useless to even try and talk to you people.

We aren't necessarily getting better BUT we are adapting more to our enviroments.

FFS...read a book.

Moron. Evolution only favours things which lead to a greater chance of reproduction. Getting older and older does not do that. There is some evidence that we have evolved to exist past our useful reproductive life as that means greater chances of our offspring surviving to reproduce and their offspring have a better chance of survival with two generations to look after them.

Why do you insist on thinking that evolution is some sort of conscious decision rather than an outcome of perfectly natural occurrences?

we die to ake way for the following generation, and the micro-changes that may improve the species.

Sometime in the past mortality was found to either have an advantage, or be intrinsically tied a trait that did.

A few years? Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't science and technology at least doubled our expected lifespan?

Just when you think that some people's "understanding" of evolution couldn't get any further from reality, along comes another Christard that lowers the bar even more.

When people were nomadic, and lived in wandering tribes, people were lucky if they made it to 30 yrs of age.

With the advent of cities, and clean water, 35 to 40.

Industrial age, 55

Now, with better nutrition and medical discoveries, average life span is 80.

FAIL FAIL FAIL!

Do fundies think the whole point of our existence is dying, instead of living? Sure seems that way.

11/26/2008 11:44:17 AM



another example of why fundies should stay the fuck away from science

Son you got it ass-backwards, evolution is dependent on certain mortality. So is religion! Who cares about an afterlife if you are immortal?

What the hell...?

These people don't actually want to grasp the ToE, do they? Or basic hygeine, medicine, education and reality it seems.

You guys really can't face the fact that you eventually die.

Your opinion liscence has been revoked and will not be reinstated until your stupidity levels return to within tolerable boundries.

"Why do we all grow old and die instead of getting better and better as secular evolutionists suggest has taken place for millions of years? "

Why do fundie creationists make shit up and claim it's science?

"This makes the promise of heaven and salvation all the more real and attractive... "

No, this makes your myth even more obviously mythical.

Because we are not Doomsday.

Also, evolution doesn't work that way, stupid.

I'm OK with those guys not believibg in evolution.
I really am.
But is it too much to ask them to actually know what the fuck they are blabbering about?

Why do we all grow old and die instead of getting better and better as secular evolutionists suggest has taken place for millions of years?

They don't suggest that. If you had bothered to research that rather than to just repeat what your pastor/parents/sunday school teacher/Kent Hovind told you then you would know that evolutionary theory does not describe itself as change in a single generation, but rather slight changes over thousands of generation.

But if you would rather stick your foot in your mouth like a fool then I'll not stop you.

Our lives are only extended by a precious few years because of so-called scientific breakthroughs...

Thanks to the scientific breakthrough in producing insulin via specially grown molds/fungi, my father was able to add around 40 years to his life in spite of his diabetic condition. 40 years of life doesn't exactly fall into the category of "precious few". And what in the theory of evolution would ever cause you to think that creatures wouldn't grow old and die?

Yes, why aren't we immortal?

I'm adding that to my list of questions to ask God on the offchance that I really do meet him when I die.
