Quote# 67558

There is no fossil record for chimpanzee's, apart from that, similarities no way prove same kind or prove shared common ancestor.

The coccyx is not a tail bone, it is a part of the pelvis that anchors several muscles.

Thinking Allowed

Merriam-Webster says you're wrong.


Main Entry: tail·bone
Pronunciation: \-'bon, -?bon\
Function: noun
1 : a caudal vertebra
2 : coccyx

Future paleontologists will wonder why some human fossils skulls from the religious centuries have slack fitting jaw bones that seem to have been heavily eroded by excess drool.

Um, mammals' tails have muscles, too. Otherwise they wouldn't be able to move them, like dogs wagging their tails for instance.

The coccyx is, in fact, the remnant of a tail.

11/15/2009 6:25:32 PM


Um...we have chimpanzees right now. We don't need fossils of them, retard.

The coccyx isn't a tail bone, and your appendix is good for you.

"There is no fossil record for chimpanzee's..."

There is, however, a fossil record for the ancestors of chimpanzees (note the lack of apostrophe) and humans. They're one and the same.

"...similarities no way prove same kind or prove shared common ancestor."

Yes they do. Ever heard of the nested hierarchy of life? Thought not.

"The coccyx is not a tail bone..."

You're right it's not, it's a vestigial tail bone.

"...it is a part of the pelvis that anchors several muscles."

While also being the remnants of a tail.

Biology fail.

11/15/2009 9:41:05 PM


It's actually 3 to 5 tail bones all stuck together. It would do you good to get it through your head that vestigial does not necessarily mean useless.

11/15/2009 10:08:18 PM


And further more, MC2 =/= E!


Biology AND physics FAIL.

Get thee to a middle school!

11/15/2009 10:37:31 PM


And so are tails! They're part of the pelvis of creatures that possess them, and they anchor several muscles! Please, try not to get your biology from Jack Chick.

Who writes this crap?

Professor M

I wonder if "MC2 = E" could actually derive the formula for mass-energy from the basics of special relativity or if s/h/it just thinks that memorizing a short formula makes you smart. (I mean, dude, it's lower-division physics!)

11/15/2009 11:57:56 PM

The X-Rays showing the fractured coccyx I suffered as a child say otherwise.

Ignorant or lying or both

If the coccyx is not a tail bone, then how come

1. Other animals' tail bones are structured in exactly the same way as the coccyx

2. Some humans have been born with tails within the last century?

Take as long as you need, then get back to me.

E=MC2! Coccyx! Pelvis! Me so smrt!

It's always funny when people use big words to try and sound smart, and then fail massively because of some basic flaw :)

Isn't it about time for fundies to start mining a new layer of stupid?

anatomy fail.

Find a chimp. Kill it. Now its a fossil.

Wow that was easy!

11/16/2009 7:59:28 AM


But HERVs and shared pseudogenes prove common ancestors. The coccyx is part of the vertebral column, not the pelvis.

11/16/2009 8:01:27 AM


The funny thing is that even if there was not one single fossil we can still prove evolution you dim wit.

You should check out the work being done in evolutionary genetics, especially the part about viral RNA. Pretty cool.

11/16/2009 8:49:19 AM


Wrong, so wrong I could earn millions selling your failure to creationists.

11/16/2009 9:18:53 AM


Fail in science!
