I have all my wisdom teeth

And I will keep them all until the day I die as long as I keep them clean and healthy. I guess I disprove evolution. Hey, if having one's wisdom teeth removed supposedly proves evolution, then the opposite is just as true.

I'm with Sasha as an evolved being. I had all four pulled at once (two impacted).

I see. I will be sure to thank god for the appendix that tried to poison and kill my mother as well as the 4 wisdom teeth that introduced me to Orajel. Tasted like orange ass, damn you!

As much as I hate to say it, I think I can follow his, er, logic.

Somewhere he heard that one example of human evolution-in-progress is the disappearance of wisdom teeth. (I've also heard that we're losing our pinky toes and, possibly, our pinkies). He must have heard that some people are losing their wisdom teeth. From there, he conflated "losing" as in "not being born with" with "losing" as in "choosing to get rid of." Keep going down this line and the conclusion he comes to is that if he doesn't lose his teeth, then evolution isn't true.

And now my head hurts.

The FBI is controlling your thoughts via your toaster

So you admit God is a terrible designer. One should reasonably expect that a supreme being could get everyone's teeth to grow in properly.

And no, having wisdom teeth removed only proves the existence of dentistry.

"I have all my wisdom teeth"

But not all your marbles.

11/24/2009 11:34:53 PM


Oh, I have an extra tooth as well. So, SOMETHING. So there.

I have all my wisdom teeth

Too bad you don't have any wisdom.

I guess I disprove evolution.

No, the fact that you have your wisdom teeth is evidence for evolution. Why would your god create a body part that you don't use?

A short bit of background on this: One of Conservapedia's "proofs" of creationism was that humans have the exact number of teeth to fit in their jaws.

Somebody pointed out that wisdom teeth exist and can cause serious problems, and got banned for that.

... Which doesn't change the fact that Jinx (hi Jinx!) is crazy.

@atheist crusader

Well I was born without wisdom teeth on the left side of my mouth, but did have them on the right (since had one of those removed).

I suppose that makes me a transitional form.

Oh for fucks sake. You fail biology forever.

11/25/2009 12:24:21 AM


I never had wisdom teeth - but I did get a whole series of uncomfortable xrays as they tried to make sure I didn't have an buds growing in the wrong place.

Does that make me the missing link?!?!?!?!

11/25/2009 12:41:29 AM


I had mine taken out... all 3 of them. Guess I'm more highly evolved than you Jim!

A friend of mine had none so I suppose she leaves me in the dust.

11/25/2009 12:46:44 AM


Your teeth may be clean and healthy, but your brain sure is rotten.

11/25/2009 1:35:36 AM


I also have all my wisdom teeth, although I do bite myself very often due to less room in my mouth than there should be.

11/25/2009 2:38:26 AM


Wtf is he talking about?

11/25/2009 2:41:18 AM


Do you still have your milk teeth? Now, that would be impressive.

11/25/2009 2:44:26 AM


I have my wisdom teeth and I'm going to live longer than you because I don't reject science, so my vote cancels out your vote.

The L

No, it doesn't. Evolution is proved by the fact that the vast majority of people have to have their wisdom teeth removed. A handful of people who don't have to have oral surgery are simply proof that the change in human jaw structure and the number of teeth is a gradual process, which is what you'd expect. An entire species doesn't just suddenly evolve to not have wisdom teeth anymore.

11/25/2009 4:39:48 AM


I had all four wisdom teeth too. Until I got them removed, because the upper ones were totally useless (pointing towards my cheeks) and the lower ones were impacted and would have likely resulted in the loss of my main molars as well if left in place.

So... yeah. More proof that we have useless body parts that evolution is in the process of gradually getting rid of. What's your point?

And, using your viewpoint, why would God deliberately give us useless teeth? Or maybe that was another of Satan's tricksy ideas...

11/25/2009 5:34:00 AM


is this kind of like saying if you loose your arm in a car accident your child will still be born with two arms thus disproving evolution?

One of Conservapedia's "proofs" of creationism was that humans have the exact number of teeth to fit in their jaws.

Amazingly, our legs are just long enough to reach the ground, too. Praise Jebus!

Mister Spak

But you've proven evolution by losing your intelligence.

11/25/2009 6:31:15 AM

Table Rock

I know a guy who had two sets of wisdom teeth and had them all removed. Is he less or more evolved than you? Or did God make a mistake?
