[In response to a comment trying to explain that modern apes and humans are separate branches of the evolutionary tree}

So you believe that we were tree branches at one time.This took place millions of years after nothing exploded,and it made everything.

However wrong he is about the big bang and evolution, somehow everything being spoken into existence from nothing by a man in the sky that has been there forever makes perfec sense to him

Oh, metaphors. You're so tricky.

"So you believe that we were tree branches at one time."

If you go back far enough, all life evolved from simple one-celled organisms. No one has implied humans evolved from trees, except for you.

"This took place millions of years after nothing exploded,and it made everything."

First off, your understanding of the Big Bang Theory is wrong, and just laughable. Also it makes more sense than saying we were made from dust, clay, and magic from some imaginary sky daddy.

First, no one "believes" evolutionary theory, the accept it as the most plausible explanation.

Second, Which is it? Are you so stupid that you think thats is what evolution entails; or, are you so ignorant that you just accept whatever bullshit you have been feed as unassailible truth with fault or failure; or third, you are simply jkust lying for jesus??

.This took place millions of years

Billions, not millions.

after nothing exploded,and it made everything

Here we go again... Big Bang cosmology and evolutionary theory have nothing what so ever to do with each other. No one, Not. One. Single.Person. Those who know even the basics of Big Bang cosmology do not think for a second that it had any thing to do with "nothing exploding". BB theory describes an expansion rather than an explosion, nor does it describe anything that can be called "nothing", but rather a singularity which contained all the matter/energy found in the universe.

When you finish pre-school you'll see how silly your statement was.

only on yahoo answers would you get stuipid of THIS quality

What the hell? Are you really so dense to not understand the concept of metaphors or are you just acting stupid? Oh wait this was on Yahoo Answers so it's likely the former.

- But seriously, the question is very poorly formulated. We do come from apes. Just not any modern type of ape.

2/19/2010 1:48:54 AM


Why can't you dumbass fundies get it through your thick skulls!

Evolution and the The Big Bang theory are two separate things!

Word and science salad. FYI, we are not talking about the branches of a tree.

2/19/2010 2:14:05 AM


Don't do weed and try to understand actual science at the same time. You miss some really important bits.

2/19/2010 2:58:34 AM


You are fucking retarded.

Great, now I have coffee all over my keyboard.

Of course, this is even more wrong when you consider that humans and apes aren't even different "branches". The common ancestor of gorillas and chimpanzees is also the common ancestor of gorillas and humans; the split in the ancestry of humans and chimpanzees is more recent than the split between their shared ancestor and that of gorillas (which is more recent than the split between the above and the common ancestor of all of the above plus orangutans, and so on). We're pretty dramatically different from our closest relatives in some important ways, but in terms of evolutionary history we're a recent "bud" on a well-populated "branch".

Well seeing as you take the bible literally it only makes sense that you would take that literally as well.

I think I felt something really stupid just ricochet right off me before I had a chance to comprehend it.

2/19/2010 4:55:15 AM


For the last damn time big bang =/= evolution!

2/19/2010 7:16:59 AM


Of course. That's why you're so wooden-headed.

2/19/2010 7:31:33 AM



Are you sure that's right? That seems a little big for C.

2/19/2010 7:42:43 AM

Congrats, you've punched right through stupid and reached "becoming a parody of oneself" in just one sentence.

2/19/2010 7:47:15 AM


Fundies think that all they have to do is "prove" the existence of God and evolution crumbles. That's why they keep bringing up the Big Bang and abiogenesis. Their "logic" goes

> The Big Bang is impossible,
> so the universe must have been created by God
> therefore, God exists,
> therefore we aren't descended from nonhuman ancestors".

Actually, it's only the creationists who insist that everything came from nothing (by magic).
