[Response to "Evolution means that we're all distant cousins: humans and oak trees, hummingbirds and whales" at http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/0_0_0/evo_02 ]

Where would such smart people come up with utter balderdash? What time wasted on idiocy....

What was that? Athiests calling me a fool? or a religeous nut?

Well atleast I don't waste my time digging up rocks and making profound statements that people and trees come from a common ancestor. Sheer lunacy. Do you evolutionists even hear yourself talk?

If you want to be related to trees, well you go ahead.. But what I fear most is that you are actually related to the squirrels, and your relatives are calling you from the top of the tree.

Says the one that thinks the sky fairy made us from mud.

Someone doesn't understand genetic evidence.

to use your analogy with families:
Imagine the sister of your grand(^80)father, who lived around 2500 years ago. While the family of your grand(^80)father stayed at home in a region that would later become france, his sister married a travelling merchant and (unknown to your part of the family) settled down in saxonia and later emigrated to the island that would later become england.
So, if you would one day meet a member of the fammily tree established by the sister of your grand(^80)father, would you recognize him/her as a member of your family, would you invite him to meetings of your family and would you think that he should be able to claim any inheritances that are made within your part of the family?

Well, your degree of relationship with a tree is much weaker, with the family of plants and animals having split several billion years ago.
But of course you prefer to believe in a collection of books from 2000-3000 years ago and in th calculations of a monk from a few hundred years ago which claim that earth is just 6000 years old, despite all evidence that earth is much much older.
Hm, if you choose to stay in the medieval ages with your knowledge so be it. But please don´t use any medicines then that were created with the help of modern medicine and biology, but stay true to the medicines that are prescribed in your bible ;)

I remember reading somewhere that we are 50% genetically identical to a house fly.

12/21/2008 3:42:20 AM


Wait though, wouldn't Creationism say all living things are related too, since God made them all?

12/21/2008 3:42:55 AM


I'd rather be related to squirrels then mud.

12/21/2008 3:50:11 AM

I'd rather be related to trees and squirrels than your stupid ignorant ass.

A Friend

Instead you waste your time on your knees begging for some nice warm jesus "forgiveness". Also, evolution does not work that way! By speaking out of your ass in your attacks of the theory of evolution you make your side look much worse.

You Christianists obviously know absolutely nothing about the subject. Why do you persist in demonstrating this fact?

12/21/2008 4:04:06 AM


Right, because being made out of clay and god-breath is much more believable.

12/21/2008 4:11:35 AM


I hear those ka-razy scientists even say we're made from the same stuff as trees and hummingbirds and whales: carbon, iron, etc. Silly - we're obviously unique creatures made entirely of Jehovah's farts.

12/21/2008 4:18:34 AM


I've heard of some weird fears, but yours takes the cake.

12/21/2008 4:24:57 AM

a mind far far away

Wit, it does not work that way.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

-Cecil Frances Alexander

Well, Starbuck? I'll see your pittance and raise ya a cold dose of irony.

12/21/2008 5:36:03 AM


Human evolutionary history: learn you some. (One of my favorite books, BTW.)

12/21/2008 5:37:45 AM


Now, now, just because your trunk isn't very big is no reason to get testy.

We at FSTDT are indeed squirrels. Thanks to you, we have gathered enough nuts to survive the winter.

"Berkley Brainwashing?"

Oh Ray Comfort, I love you.

Balderdash! Poppycock! I say, I smell shenanigans, old bean! *monocle pops off*

12/21/2008 6:55:35 AM


To me, it looks like they allowed primates to type this shit.

12/21/2008 9:50:47 AM

Pule Thamex

A most jocular chappie.

Some facts for Starbuck:-

Ray Comfort is an exceptionally stupid clod.

There is no God.

Belief is a stupid thing.

The bible is inconsistent.

Fundies enjoy being hateful and bigoted and worship stupidity.

Fundies are not afraid to show their stupidity.

12/21/2008 10:00:43 AM


Oh bloody hell, I really hope that "starbuck" doesn't watch BSG and just made up his/her name without realising it....

@ werewolf:

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.

Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom,
He made their horrid wings.

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid.
Who made the spikey urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did.

All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small.
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.

12/21/2008 11:02:56 AM


If you want to be dumb as a rock, well go- oh, you anticipated me.
