2016 Fundie of the Year Nominations
A human has 23 chromosomes. One of the vegetables has 11...does that make the vegetable half a human (or there abouts)? It must, considering your logic.

What in the name of ... ?
Oh, it's Supersport.

I'd like a little more context on this submission, personally. It's hard to tell what's going on. The phrase "considering your logic" at the end makes it clear that Supersport is being sarcastic here, but I can't tell (without the link) what he's trying to rebut.

Ok, when we say you have the brain of a cabbage, that's not what we mean.
7/31/2009 3:53:06 PM
Whether a vegetable is half a human depends a lot on the particular human.
7/31/2009 3:58:02 PM
What response can I possibly provide in response to such stupidity?
7/31/2009 4:03:24 PM
All people are cabbages until proven human
7/31/2009 4:10:06 PM
No, but, (and this is a Fundie-stunning fact) each human share about 1/2 his/her DNA with the nearest tree. In that sense, trees are half human and humans are half tree.

Oh. Supersport. No, that does not follow from the logic of the poster this is in reply to. S/he just said we have all the same things in one chromosome that those two do in the other apes, including telomeric sequences -in the middle of the chromosome-. Since other signs point to common descent but the chromosome counts don't match this is what we would expect might have happened (btw, this is a prediction of evolutionary theory). By -your- logic some strawberry strains or those treated with colchicine are superhuman.

My brain broke....
7/31/2009 4:27:23 PM
I'd start out by saying that humans don't have 23 chromosomes, we have 23
of chromosomes ...
... but this is the same Supersport who believes that because Pluto is no longer classed as a Planet, it must therefore be classed as a Star.

I thought that was Carico... Or was it this idiot as well? I lose track. There are times they vie with each other for the 'Most Stupid Person Breathing' award...

Organic chemistry class needed for this idiot.
7/31/2009 4:52:34 PM
I wonder, is there an invisible sign at CARM that only fundies can see that says-
"Logic not allowed"?
7/31/2009 5:05:10 PM
Considering how little Supersport knows about science, I can understand how this would make sense to him/her. However, in reality SCIENCE! (human genetic patterns) is just a
more complicated than that.

Come to think of it, Superstupid even makes VenomFangX look smart and smart is normally the last thing I would call VenomFangX...
7/31/2009 5:35:32 PM
someone doesn't know what a chromosome is.

My phone book has more pages and more words than the Bible. Does that make the phone book more of a Bible than the Bible? It must, considering you logic.
7/31/2009 5:48:47 PM
Watersport must have a capacious arse, he keeps pulling things like this out of it.
7/31/2009 6:09:44 PM
LOTR has twice the words that the Baa-Bull has. Complete your logical sequence here, if you will.

"A human has 23 chromosomes. One of the vegetables has 11...does that make the vegetable half a human (or there abouts)?"
No. But speaking of vegetables I'm sure I could have a more meaningful conversation with a radish than with you.
"It must, considering your logic."
Check the vegetable's DNA. Then check a human's. You'll find a surprising number of similarities.
Please explain this if we're some sort of "special creation". Evolution explains this because all life on this planet is in some way related. You, on the other hand, you're just fucked as far as your claims go.
7/31/2009 7:46:04 PM
Um...those chromosomes are vastly different.
7/31/2009 9:33:37 PM
If it wasn't Supersport, I would be wondering what the hell was the matter with this person. But since it is, I know exactly what the matter is with him: he's mind-numbingly ignorant about anything even remotely related to science, and probably reality.
7/31/2009 10:28:02 PM
To start, it's 23 Chromosome Pairs.
