Quote# 54607

The idea of people and trees being related is stupid because there is no scientific, empirical evidence that supports it. Are there fossils that bear aspects of human beings and non-living things, like rocks and trees? It's bad enough to say that humans evolved from other living creatures, but to say that living creatures and inanimate objects evolved from the same unicellular organism....? True evidence, please?

With Ray's knowledge of evolution I don't know how those atheists on his blog aren't instantly convinced.

He thinks trees aren't alive...wtf.

.................Wow , now I see the light......... praise jeebus!!!

Trees are quite alive, kid.

non-living things, like rocks and trees

The Ents would like a word with you.

Seriously though, trees are alive. Idiot.

12/21/2008 7:11:21 PM


Trees grow, asshole. Therefore, they are alive. I thought anyone with half a brain knows that.

...guess not.

Er, Ray's right on one level on this one, biblically speaking trees aren't alive.'The life is in the blood' as Leviticus says, not in the sap. If it doesn't bleed, it's not alive.

like rocks and trees?

Do you even know what a school is?

Yeah, Ray, you've almost grasped it. You're descended from a rock on your father's side and a Ford Edsel on your mother's. And yet you still insist on eating bananas, you crazy chimp!

If it's moving very very slowly, it doesn't mean it's inanimate object.

If you want a vision of the future, imagaine reality kicking a fundie in the face, forever.

Non living things... like trees.
Okay then.

Well considering all living things on earth are made up of the same genetic base pairs in their DNA (I'm no biologist but I think adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine are the base pairs...?) that's pretty strong evidence that we're all related to some degree.

Back when I was a boy -- it was a long time ago -- trees were alive.

Non-living things like trees? People like this make me want to just end the world because the human race isn't worth the effort.

12/21/2008 9:15:22 PM


Uh... whut?

12/21/2008 9:16:06 PM


I hear that men can get wood.....

I wonder if these people ever consider thinking before the post stuff on the Internet. It could prevent them from ending up here, you know.

We have carbon in us and so does rock... It easy to point out that we are probably made up of the same substances.

12/22/2008 12:32:34 AM


mmmm.... plants breathe, procreate, grow, and some of them even move and are carnivorous. yeah, I can totally see how you'd confuse them for inanimate objects

Holy fucking failure, Batman!

There's no oxygen getting to your brain at all, is there?

12/22/2008 4:07:23 AM


trees are not intimate. inanimate is not the same as unmoving.
