Quote# 65799

[In all fairness, he claims that he has no religion but I don't believe it]

Tell me exactly how you prove that a fish came out of water? How did it "know" it needed legs? How did it change its entire genetic structures and break all? the laws of genetics? How did it grow lungs. This is an utter logical fallacy. The only way for a fish to be able to breath air is if it was born that way.
What you have: a religion of Evodelusionism.
You can't even find a way to test any of this, yet you believe?

"This is an utter logical fallacy."

I whole-heartedly agree - you're committing the fallacy of argument from personal incredulity.

Fish breath air. They get it from the water.

H2O it's called. O is oxygen.

I hope you feel a little stupider now.

YouTube. Vote meh and move on.

Yeah, it's not like there are extant animals that might provide clues as to how fish transitioned to breathing air and moving on land...
Like the mudskipper...
No, none whatsoever. We're just making this shit up! You've caught us out. You're actually smarter than any scientist in the world. I am being completely serious - this is not sarcasm.

You fail biology forever.

Oh, and why do so many creationists seem to have the diction of ditzy valley girls? Even the adult males?

Lamark was wrong, boy.

. . .

My mom said something similar to me about ameobas knowing how to contain stomach acid in a bubble. . . . I wish people would learn you can't effectively argue against something until you at least remotely understand it.

Uhm. . . Godbuster. . . they use dissolved oxygen in the water, not the oxygen from the actual water molecule.

Reality fail. Move along, it's from Youtube.

Here's the thing:

If you don't have an alternate belief then evolution should pose no issue with you. It's the best scientific (studied, restudied, documented, tested, reliable) evidence we have.

I'm an atheist. I have no stake in evoltion theory, it wouldn't change my life if there was prove against it.

I think it's correct because so many people with no affiliation except science agree with it. They have proof and predictions that do prove out. Predictions are scientific assumptions based on facts that will vindicate of destroy a theory.

No ones come close to destroying the theory of evolution to this day. Biblical Prophicies have failed since the beginning

To paraphrase Pulp Fiction: Fossils motherfucker, have you heard of them?!?

9/20/2009 8:51:20 AM


The lifeform doesn't know it "needs" a trait. Traits develop randomly and if they prove to be useful, or at least not detrimental, they may persist.

9/20/2009 9:46:59 AM


There is the lungfish. It comes out of water. Eels travel across land... I'm sure that there are other examples, but I don't see why I should do this kind of work for lazy, ignorant gits.

9/20/2009 9:52:24 AM


There are many air breathing fish alive today. In a million years or so they may evolve into a new order of terrestrial life. One doesn't even have to look at the startlingly complete fossil record.

By the process of evolution over very long time spans. Try reading up on it a bit.


Actually, evolution being false would change the life of everyone.

At least everyone who uses antibiotics, or has an immune system.

9/20/2009 11:37:14 AM

There are fish that breathe air. Quite a few of them, in fact, scattered throughout the group. It's quite possible that having lungs was the default early in the group's history.

Also, evolution, not working that way, etc.

9/20/2009 11:56:32 AM


Imroy: How about bettas, and anything else with a labyrinth organ? Breathing gaseous air at times without ever touching land...That seems like a good segue point.

9/20/2009 1:08:22 PM


The only way for a fish to be able to breath air is if it was born that way.

Yes, that is absolutely correct. Thank you for demonstrating your complete and utter lack of understanding of evolution.

Old Viking

It's hard to believe that all of these things happened in an instant, isn't it?

9/20/2009 1:44:53 PM


The only way for a fish to be able to breath air is if it was born that way.

Yes. Useful mutation, that.

9/20/2009 2:26:47 PM


Asian Snakehead also comes to mind

9/20/2009 2:48:00 PM


What the hell?

Just... yeah, no, WHAT THE FUCK?

Oh, and lungfish.

9/20/2009 2:58:16 PM

Not gonna lie, "evodelusionism" has got a nice ring to it. XD

9/20/2009 3:12:35 PM


Why don't you just read a good textbook on the subject, you'll find all the answers to your questions in there. Or you could just give that strawman a few more good kicks. Up to you.

9/20/2009 3:52:52 PM


It makes so much more sense that man was created of mud and dirt, woman from a rib. Makes as much sense as this post. *sigh*
