"You're expecting the fossils to do something?"

Well if the fossils don't 'do something' how can I observe the 'fact' of evolution?

With you mind. Yeah, incredible, I know.

Dead animals don't tend to do a lot.

D Laurier.

The very act that fossils exist as predicted by the theory of evolution.... is not enough.

They must also perform a song and dance skit.

Dude. They're fossils. Remains of long-dead animals. They're not going to "do" anything.

8/28/2009 4:01:59 PM


You compare the fossil to other fossils and living creatures, dumbass.

8/28/2009 4:25:26 PM


It's called "going outside".

Oh hell no!

Someone has to post the video of that scene from the grim adventures of billy and mandy. ASAP!

Considering that the fossils and your brain occupy the same quantum state, you could just shut up and listen to their voices.

Very blatant Poe, this one.

This guy is a classic troll - not interested in convincing anyone, discussing anything, or learning anything, just wants to make a ruckus and draw attention to himself. Feels powerful when it works. With Pharyngulites' weakness for troll-feeding and notorious combativeness, he came to the right place.

8/28/2009 8:53:51 PM


So this is a troll? Next target please, no sense wasting ammo!

8/28/2009 9:00:10 PM


The fact that the fossils exist is proof, you moron.

8/28/2009 10:22:38 PM


But the fossils are doing something. Something very important.

They're existing, you see. If you look really close, you'll observe how they are real. Amazing, isn't it?

8/28/2009 10:44:57 PM


Face shall palm.

8/29/2009 1:53:12 AM


Ouch. Just... ouch. Biologists, my hat goes of for you.

8/29/2009 2:11:43 AM


A single fossil won't do it, but get a whole bunch of them, and you'll see the chain.

Fossils are active. They'rev just a bit slow.

MASSIVE facepalm-

What the- how- huh- OW! Brain freeze!

And if god and/or Jesus don't do something, like show up, -- ever --, then how are we supposed to observe their existence?

8/29/2009 5:41:26 PM


@ Philbert McAdamia

You have said it all
