Quote# 62371

(commenting on an article about the synthesis of one of the components of RNA in a laboratory setting}

Nobeliefrequired: check the bible, God specifically said 120 years max.

Everyone is missing a very big detail: this experiment created a COMPONENT of RNA, not even a single molecule of RNA. You evolutionists need to realize you have your own religion: Evolution. How else you explain how this reaction would have to be repeated hundreds of times, creating hundreds of different proteins, and then they have to assemble themselves in perfect order (violating the law of entropy). All this has to happen JUST TO CREATE DNA, then of course you also have to form the DOZENS of other structures REQUIRED for a SINGLE CELL ORGANISM. Your have to throw your brains in the trash to believe that was plausible.

Amongst quadrillions of naturally evolved protein keystones across the goddamn planet over billions of years one WILL form something that is a DNA

Amongst quadrillions of naturally evolved proteins one WILL form something that is a RNA

Amongst limitless numbers of naturally evolved protein keystones one WILL form something that is a cell...

etc etc

God was wrong, then. A woman lived to be 122 in France.

Yeah, since we've only managed to partially explain an event that occured several billion years ago, *we cant even agree if shakespeare was one man afew hundred years ago* the only possible answer is god. Gotta love religious 'logic'.

Evolution is still no religion. A religion has rules to live by, often a deity to worship, rituals to follow. Evolution is a scientific theory on how life emerged and constantly develops on this planet. There are no rules, no deity, no rituals. Not even any hymns or songs, no holidays. Just a silent constant progress, regardless of any "beliefs" in it.

A couple of weeks ago, someone claiming to be 130 years old died. The actual age was in dispute but there's no denial that she was of an advanced age.

There's a whole heaping pile of science fail here, but the one that really gets me pissed off is the entropy.

These Entropy Fails are getting to be really tiresome. Basic thermodynamics, including the second law, should be a goddamn required subject at high school, not reserved exclusively for physics and engineering graduates - it's an essential concept in grasping how pretty much everything in the entire universe functions, from the heat death itself, through global warming and the inevitable fossil fuel crisis, right down to fucking domestic fridges and automobiles!

I thought the days of our years numbered threescore and ten.

Plus it's two components, and we already know that RNA assembles easily with all of them in the right situations.

Good thing DNA had a really long time to form, then.

I am so sick of people using stupidity to back up their faulty beliefs.

"...and then they have to assemble themselves in perfect order (violating the law of entropy).

Doesn't it just rip yer knitting when science-hating fundies try to use evidence and facts discovered by scientists to try to refute science?! "The scientific evidence is wrong!!!!1! (When it suits me or I'm too stupid and blinkered to understand what it means)".

Morons.

And you need to stop thinking that this shit happened over night.

Ah yes, I see. In order to sound more scientific the fundtard has pulled out the entropy card. Little do they know, since they never bother to do any research, that instead of making them sound smarter and making their argument more valid that it in fact has the opposite effect.
Summary: Fundatrd using second law of thermodymics in an argument= Automatic Fail.

Again with the entropy?

When are you guys gonna stop flogging that dead horse?

God. Damn. It.

Entropy can be subverted on Earth because we have a sun!

Haha, try this on:

"Everyone is missing a very big detail: this experiment created a COMPONENT of A CAR, not even a single CAR. You CARists need to realize you have your own religion: CARism. How else you explain how this "PROCESS" would have to be repeated hundreds of times, creating hundreds of different COMPONENTS, and then they have to assemble themselves in perfect order (violating the law of entropy). All this has to happen JUST TO CREATE A CAR, then of course you also have to form the DOZENS of other structures REQUIRED for a TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. Your have to throw your brains in the trash to believe that was plausible.

Over millions and or billions of years however, it is entirely plausible, nay likely, that someone as stupid as theMage would come to be.

Your dazzling exposition has crushed science for all time.

fundiesRtehlulz - Obviously, that was just a result of long-life demons influencing her poor poor soul, or some tripe like that.

I read somewhere a few years ago it was thought very unlikely someone could live past 130, so that old lady pegged out at just the point one might expect the oldest ever person would do. Apparently a 1946 passport gave her birth year as 1879, just 20 years after the publication of Origins of Species.

I thought the God botherers believed Biblical figures lived for centuries?

Only why it took million upon millions of years. Once it's began though, it's hard to hold life back

*sigh*

They don't understand the experiment.
They don't understand what a religion is.
They don't understand entropy.
They don't understand biology.
They don't understand probability.

Yet they want us to take them seriously?

I thought this was a site about fundamentalists, not journalists...

(also - ANOTHER entropy fail?!)
