Quote# 59877

The Evo-atheists can’t stand the FACT that their big hero was a nobody who was an academic failure. He was a pathetic dabbler in a sea of professionals. He was simply out of his league. He was pontificating on botany and geology and natural history, but was studying theology, which he couldn’t even get right. The man with no scientific training whatsoever is the “scientist” we are supposed to worship? Sounds more like L Ron Hubbard than Isaac Newton. lol

Mrs. Antichrist

Yes, that crazy Newton, with his theory of gravity. Everyone knows that it's the weight of sin that keeps things on the planet.

I'm an evo-pagan. I know some evo-Christians and evo-agnostics. None of us worship Darwin. Where do we fit into this fascinating scenario?

P.S. I've been looking for months for the perfect username, thanks dude!!!

You are why the Republican Party is circling the drain.

Assuming that you're talking about Darwin here, I bet he was a hundred times smarter than you.

I presume he's talking about Darwin?

So atheist have a messiah now?

Darwin, Darwin!;
He's our man.
If he can't beat fundies;
Nobody can.

GOOoooo Darwin.

To Darwin Be the Glory

All of that fails before the fact that Charles Darwin came up with a better explanation for the origin of species than your God did.
Darwin ftw!

2/28/2009 6:17:14 AM


Er, well, it's more accurate to say that Charles Darwin came up with a better explanation for the origin of species than a tribe of bronze age desert nomads making up bedtime stories around a campfire did.

No. The Evo-atheists can't stand when fundies end their vomit with "I'll pray for you." which you thankfully didn't.

But you, ToGodBeTheGlory, are an idiot admiral nonetheless.

I only see a big ad hom.

2/28/2009 7:24:11 AM


What your defunct brain is not capable of understanding, is that we don't worship scientists. Also, how can one fail at theology? What is theology anyway, isn't it like the study of the fictional?

2/28/2009 7:38:35 AM


That Darwin, what a nobody! It's not like he's on money or anything.


Oh, oops!

2/28/2009 7:38:45 AM


"their big hero was a nobody who was an academic failure"

Linus Torvalds is not a nobody.


Wait, are you talking about Darwin?

2/28/2009 8:19:43 AM


You assume much grasshopper.

2/28/2009 9:59:03 AM


yeeeeah, sure... you go on and think that...

"The man with no scientific training whatsoever is the “scientist” we are supposed to worship?"

Atheists don't worship anyone. That's kind of the point. Oh, and you guys worship a carpenter, so I wouldn't talk.

One of the greatest evolutionary theorists was also a nazi. I don't worship him, I just find his work on things like the golden ratio useful. In the same way, it would be foolish to reject the work the nazis carried out on treatment of diabetes, even though I disagree with their politics. The muslims invented algebra. I think Islam is the world's most totalitarian religion, but algebra is great.

ergo, I do not worship anyone.

2/28/2009 10:28:08 AM


Isaac Newton did alchemy, was obsessed with revelations and predicted the world would end in 2050, people only remember him for his physics :(

2/28/2009 10:32:42 AM


Here's a pseudu-philosophical conundrum that might be just be relevant

The Nazis used huge amounts of X -ray radiation to shoot animated footage of the knee-joint in action from various angles. The radiation used killed the subjects

Does that mean we should reject their evidence of how the knee works?

Obviously not.

In the same way, whether Darwin was a Christian or not makes absolutely no difference as to what he discovered. It is a fact that evolution exists, and that a slightly modified version of Darwin's theory accounts for it. After all, no-one knew of DNA in Darwin's day.

I wonder why I preach to the converted here...

Atheist In A Foxhole

If this is about Evo-atheists, what about religious people who accept evolution?

Is ToGodBeTheSupidity trying for his own special site on FSTDT?

2/28/2009 11:53:01 AM

Mister Spak

The fundo-cretinists can't STAND the FACT that Darwin was an accomplished scientist for example he won an award for his work in geology just before On the Origin of Species was published, while all ToGodBeTheStory can do is potificate on goddidditt, and he even fails at that. He fails so hard I lol.

2/28/2009 12:16:37 PM


and despite all that, he still achieved more in his live then you and your whole church ever will.

2/28/2009 12:17:11 PM


You do know he invented the science of biology since prior to him there were no biologists...

And he was an entomologist. Specifically a Coleopterist since he was interested in beetles.

Before that there was no biology. There was natural history which basically catalogued animals. After him biology began to understand what it was doing. He is like Newton. Cause Newton invented Physics. Likewise like Lavoisier since Laviosier started the catalogue of chemistry prior to which there was only "alchemy".
