Quote# 5770

One reason that it [evolution] continues to be used is because people, as scientists, are thinking backwards. Instead of looking at the facts and creating a hypothesis from their experiments, they go looking for evidence that can support their preconceived thesis.

Creation scientists: "Here is the conclusion. What facts can we find to support it?"

Irony? Nobody comes up with the idea that god made earth in 6 days 6000 years ago by looking at the facts, they get it from looking in the bible.

Another irony meter bites the dust.

My irony meter tried to shot itself but fortunately missed because it was blinded by the shiniest of mirrors.
