Quote# 59583

That’s why the Temple of Darwinian Materialism needs to be exposed for the religion it is, and forced to compete against rival theories of origins in the free market of scientific ideas. Let’s face it, the HMS Beagle is already in the process of sinking. Even the Evos are starting to call for the funeral of Darwin’s fanciful creation myth so that “evolution might live.” However, if the unconstitutional government and court supports are knocked out from underneath the Temple of Darwin, the HMS Beagle will sink faster than the lead weights the Mob uses to send their victims to watery graves.

Show me the other scientific theories!

For the last time, science is NOT a free market. And oh, did i mention about our new fleet of Fermi-class aircraft carriers?

Theory of Evolution did compete against other theories and bitch-slapped all of them. That is why Evolution is used.

GodGunsGuts you ball less wonder are and will remain ignorant.

Darwin's fanciful creation myth ...

Darwin said nothing about creation. Make your targets astronomy and physics.

What a dork!

Buddy, the reason you lost is that Natural Selection did compete against Creationism, Lamarckism and Intelligent Design in the "free market of ideas." The punters looked at the alternatives and decided they were dodgy. You lost, your product was faulty, get over it and go back to church.

The Theory of Evolution did compete against rival theories in the free market of scientific ideas and kicked their asses.

Evolution has nothing to do with the beginning of life, only how existing life changed. Why is that so hard?

Blah blah blah I'm making shit up as I go blah blah blah

See Peloza v. Capistrano School District. Peloza tried to argue that he shouldn't have to teach "evolutionism" because it was a religion. The 9th circuit court agreed with the lower court that "evolutionism" was not a religion within the meaning of the First Amendment (or anyone's common-sense use of the word "religion"). Peloza appealed to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear the case.

Perhaps the most frightening thing about your rant is your username. "GodGunsGuts": Mmmm, that sounds like a near-perfect expression of the Fundy understanding of Christian love. You should have put "KillRagheads" on the end of it.

How come I don't see any churches dedicated to Darwin?

2/24/2009 9:50:30 PM


If I were religious, having people of this level of intellect be the public face of my belief system would be humiliating. Glad I don't have that problem

There aren't any other "rival theories of origins in the free market of scientific ideas".

This reminds me of the time my 10th grade biology teacher decided he'd be open minded and let the class have a free for all discussion on creation. The class smartass kept telling the fundie students that Odin would strike them down.

Want to compete? I point this out to you. You literally have no idea what you are getting into.

Its like me challenging Mike Tyson to a boxing match/ear eating contest/rape.

Going to end with me getting hurt. Likewise you are attempting to take on something far more powerful than you can ever imagine.

Tell you what. You provide one peer reviewed piece of research. I mean actual peer review. As in an experiment done to see how something "evolutionary works" and provide us with a creationist experiment. Then we will talk. Remember rules of peer review apply and "bible" = "source" since you cannot replicate magic.

And the mob uses concrete.

So...what if the HMS Beagle is a hollow rectangular prism?! (see previous gem)

2/25/2009 4:30:17 AM


"and forced to compete against rival theories of origins in the free market of scientific ideas."

By this he probably means peer review, in which case evolution has been one of the most doggedly reviewed theories ever. Suffering even more scrutiny than the theory of gravity.

You lost. Get over it, stop pretending you're winning. There is no conspiracy to promote evolution over ID (creationism), its just that evolution was a genuinely better theory. This is just like the flat earth vs round earth debate and the geocentric vs heliocentric debate, no matter how much you religious nuts don't want to believe it, we're right, you're wrong, we researched objectively, you didn't, we subjected ideas to criticism and review, you ignored it.

3G at least get your terminology consistent
Which is it the 'Temple of Darwinian Materialism ' or 'Temple of Darwinistic Materialism ' or are these two different 'Temples'?
Also your use of metaphors is appalling.

This is news to me.

Pedantic Speaker

What Orwell said regarding the implication of mixed metaphors is exaggerated at best, insofar as "The Fascist octopus has sung its swan song" is a mixed metaphor. The fascist octopus metaphor merely indicates that he pictures every fascist movement, from the Ku Klux Klan in the former Southern Confederacy to the Greyshirts in Iceland and the New Guard in New South Wales, as appendages of some central organisation just as the tentacles of an octopus or, for that matter, the wings of a swan (a similar statement now about any other ideology might end up on CTSTDT); the swan song metaphor merely analogises whatever the original writer saw that he believed were the dying acts and words of fascism with the death throes and cries of an animal. Essentially, because the metaphors are compatible, all the sentence shows is that the writer thinks of ideologies as individual animal-like beings that control their adherents for the good of the ideology and can be killed somehow; therefore, although his thinking is comprehensively wrong (all fascist groups, by definition ultranationalist, cooperating irrespective of nationality? Is it therefore not fascism when jews do it? How can an ideology have vital organs?), he is, technically, "really thinking".

That F in biology must have really hurt, Ann.
