Quote# 6351

So adaption means evolution. If we as humans lived in the water long enough we would grow gills to adapt. Or those living in high rise buildings would grow wings.

"If we as humans lived in the water long enough we wold grow gills to adapt".

Finally, something true out of a fundie! I never thought the day would come.

"Or those living in high rise buildings would grow wings".

I knew it was too good to last.

This is the product of a brilliant scientific mind.

Well, people who are christian fundies for long enough DO grow stupidity and irrationality to adapt, don't they?

It was more like the other way around.

There are other marine adaptations than gills, you moron.

"Or those living in high rise buildings would grow wings."
Yes, all animals living in high altitudes grow wings.

If, 'we as humans' means as a species, then yes, no doubt*. If 'we as humans' means as individuals, then not so much.

*Assuming there were survival pressures around the lack of those things. If we had things like, oh, say, aqualungs and staircases, it mightn't be as pressing.

At last, he's actually grasping how evolution works, although the process takes many generations.

Close, but no cigar.

We would adapt to aquatic life, one way or the other. Thats exactly how whales evolved: Some cow-like animals returned to the water a long time ago, slowly re-adapting to life in water by the evolutionary mechanism.

While those living on the ground floor would lose the ability to climb steps or push elevator buttons.

Such a pity. Your first sentence was so full of promise - but then your post starting doing a very good Titanic imitation.

You couldn't grow a fungus.

If women began to find aquatic based men sexually attractive, yes! ( As a dive instructor, my fingers are firmly crossed for this one )

I like how guys like this think 'I know how evolution works!', and then proceed to get it depressingly wrong, whilst strutting about going 'TAKE THAT! YOUR THEORY OF EVOLUTION IS WRONG!'
