Quote# 67739

I believe in God, the Creator. I don’t think man came from apes, or that man and ape evolved from the same species. I believe there are indications of intelligent design in the way life is organized and reproduces itself.

I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design, even though some of them say that they don’t believe in God. These people are coming to their conclusions based on evidence, not on religious belief. Sure, I wish everyone could have the comfort and joy of a relationship with God, but if that isn’t possible, I am encouraged at least that a stake is being driven through the heart of Darwinism.

Darwinism is responsible for a great darkness in the world, and the deaths of many millions of innocent people. I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when scientists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many scientists could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Darwin’s theory.

"Christianity is responsible for a great darkness in the world, and the deaths of many millions of innocent people. I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when fundamentalists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many fundies could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Intelligent Design."

There. Fixed.

...goody. Another one trying to connect Darwinism and genocide.

It's not "Survival of the fittest," it's "survival of the best suited to survive in a certain climate that does not necessarily have to be strength!"

I'll ignore your lying bullshit and ask the obvious question: exactly how are evolutionary biology and the existence of God mutually exclusive?

I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design, even though some of them say that they don’t believe in God.

From dictionary.com

ox·y·mo·ron[ok-si-mawr-on, -mohr-]–noun,

a figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.”

Could you introduce me to some of the scientists backing the concept of intelligent design? Which ones have had an article supporting it in a peer-reviewed journal?

What "intelligent design" advocate will tell us what the intelligently designed difference is between a human and a chimp?

11/23/2009 7:21:50 PM



What evidence? You say there's evidence but you never provide it.

I'll bet that this 'Rocky' person never read any books by Darwin.

Evolution, what retards like you call Darwinism, is the proven theory with the evidence behind it. Not intelligent design.
So, like most idiots on FreeRepublic, you know fuck all.

Humans are apes. Great apes. It's a taxonomic classification. It's a taxonomic classification based on a system that was invented by creationist (Carolus Linnaeus). Which defining characteristic(s) of the great apes, do humans not share?

"deaths of many millions of innocent people"

Okay but see...

1) Your religion claims no one is innocent. Not even newborn babies.

2) Even if some or all ARE innocent, that means that they must be True Christians (TM), meaning that upon death, they went straight to heaven - which must be a much better place than earth, right?

3) And further, your religion claims that all things are under God's control, including Darwinism and the deaths of millions of people, and that either a) it's already part of God's ultimate plan or b) God can and will find a greater purpose for Darwinism and those deaths.

So explain why it is you feel so strongly that you must fight Darwinism, when ultimately it's just doing God's work of sending True Christians (TM) to their ultimate destination anyway.

Good for you.

I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design, even though some of them say that they don’t believe in God.

So, your taking credit for what someone else said again?

Darwinism is responsible for a great darkness in the world, and the deaths of many millions of innocent people.

Don't you mean religion?

I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when scientists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many scientists could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Darwin’s theory.


Wow.

A) 99.98% of scientists accept evolutionary theory and naturalistic explanations for the origin of the universe, the origin of life, and the diversity of life.
B) Intelligent design is creationism in a cheap tuxedo.
C) Intelligent design and/or creationism are very strong in Muslim countries. Among Muslims. Not every enemy of your enemy is your friend.

"I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design"

Only the jacka** ones.

"I am encouraged at least that a stake is being driven through the heart of Darwinism."

Uh, guess again, bonehead. No wishful thinking this time.

"I don’t think man came from apes, or that man and ape evolved from the same species."

And your opinion counts for very little. Facts are facts, whether you believe them or not.

"These people are coming to their conclusions based on evidence, not on religious belief."

There is *no* evidence for "intelligent design". None.

"Sure, I wish everyone could have the comfort and joy of a relationship with God..."

How can someone have a relationship with something that doesn't exist?

"...but if that isn’t possible, I am encouraged at least that a stake is being driven through the heart of Darwinism."

There's no such thing as "Darwinism". You're either ignorant or a liar. Which is it?

"Darwinism is responsible for a great darkness in the world, and the deaths of many millions of innocent people."

No. That would be religion. Religion is worthless, religion is dangerous, religion kills.

"I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when scientists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many scientists could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Darwin’s theory."

That will never happen, as facts remain facts no matter how much your mental illness wishes they wouldn't.

"I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design, even though some of them say that they don’t believe in God. These people are coming to their conclusions based on evidence, not on religious belief."

Can you show me a scientist (or anyone at all, really) who supports ID but doesn't believe in God? No, Christian ID evangelists claiming 'but the designer COULD be aliens' don't count.
No? Thought not.

The propaganda that saturates your life is certainly never going to hint that you're losing...

"I believe in God, the Creator."

Good for you.

"I don’t think man came from apes, or that man and ape evolved from the same species."

Humans are apes you dolt.

"I believe there are indications of intelligent design in the way life is organized and reproduces itself."

Examples? I can show you many that directly contradict the idea of any designer, or at least any designer worthy of the title.

"I am pleased to see scientists and philosophers backing the concept of intelligent design, even though some of them say that they don’t believe in God."

And these people are who, exactly?

"These people are coming to their conclusions based on evidence, not on religious belief."

There is no evidence for your supposed designer.

"Sure, I wish everyone could have the comfort and joy of a relationship with God, but if that isn’t possible, I am encouraged at least that a stake is being driven through the heart of Darwinism."

"Darwinism" hasn't existed for over a hundred years.

"Darwinism is responsible for a great darkness in the world, and the deaths of many millions of innocent people."

I doubt it. In fact, it's saved many times that many through its applications in modern medicine, pharmacology and farming techniques.

"I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when scientists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many scientists could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Darwin’s theory."

One word: evidence.

I don’t think man came from apes, or that man and ape evolved from the same species.

That's nice. The scientific community, however, is not interested in what you find most comforting.

"I believe there are indications of intelligent design in the way life is organized and reproduces itself."

Please enlighten me. Maybe your body and mind work pretty well for what they are, but a great many of us see how easily they can go wrong.

"I long for the day, which I believe is coming in the future, when scientists will wonder and shake their heads, mystified as to how so many scientists could have tricked themselves into believing in and proclaiming Darwin’s theory."

That will never happen, so you may as well give it up now. People for ID claim to have knowledge I don't have (and they've done so for years), but they refuse to share it. If you want to influence me, if you want me to see how deceived I am, you -have- to give me something that actually shows that.

11/23/2009 10:11:57 PM



No, you don't think. That much you've made obvious.

I love it. I can make the same argument about blind faith in an invisible diety and that it leads to the righteous slaughter of the non-believers. And when you're dealing with whole cultures or nations of non-believers, that becomes Genocide.

Bitch, please. You aren't impressing anyone with this crap.

So deluded. And you know which scientific theory killed more people than Theory of Evolution? Theory of Gravity.

Let's see. All the people falling from high places, all avalanches, all those lava flows and, yes, all those that got killed by gillotine.
