Quote# 71062

It's funny how when people bring up this debate that the topic is always brought back to Darwin. Darwin was a great man who came up with a theory that actually has nothing to do with modern Biology. But it is what has come since Darwin's theory was realized that has virtually proven that evolution did not and could not occur and is still continuing to do so. Genetics, the field of science established by Christian Creationist Gregor Mendel, the human genome project, which was headed by an Evolutionist who describes his work as 'seeing the very language of God' along with the many other mappings of other species DNA, better technology in finding and categorizing fossils that plainly show stasis and that a fossil, in itself does not become 'transitional' just because it is 'declared and named such' and many more fields of excellent biological research all lead to the conclusion that Evolution is scientifically impossible

It's only now the uneducated few who still cling onto the 19th century ideas.

Nineteenth century ideas like Mendelian genetics? How about nineteenth century BC ideas? Are those okay, too?

Let's not forget Svante Arhenius's greenhouse effect theory!

Now explain HERVs and why birds have genes for teeth and humans and chimps have identical defective genes for making vitamin C.

I find this last sentence interesting because it is this exact idea that Richard Dawkins addressed in TGSOE. The 19th century is the last time that it was "ok" to believe in ideas such as the virgin birth, the flood, Adam and Eve in a literal sense. Or was it TGD, I forget. It was one of those two though.

You owe me a new irony meter.

"It's only now the uneducated few who still cling onto the 19th century ideas."

Please be a poe, otherwise I may have just lost faith in humanity.

...Well, okay, I would if I hadn't already lost my faith in humanity a long time ago.

"It's only now the uneducated few who still cling onto the 19th century ideas."

Uh, no, the uneducated few are the ones rejecting the fossil record and evolution in favor of bronze-age ideas about science.

How can fundies claim with a straight face that genetics somehow disproved the theory of evolution?

I literally do not even know where to start with this one.

The theory of evolution has nothing to do with modern Biology?!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

2/23/2010 8:29:14 PM



Nothing to do with it? It has everything to do with biology.

Seriously, show us some findings from peer-reviewed scientific journals and we might take your idea into consideration.

Damn! Four years of my young life wasted on a biology degree and I'm still unedumacated.

It was in a great university, too.

It is a telling fact that ElProximo basically took a previous poster's positive (and correct) comment about Darwin and evolution and rewrote it in his own retarded and incorrect way.
Get an education ElProximo. Our work with the genetic record has only strengthened the case for evolution.

"uneducated few" = scientific majority.

Modern evolution IS Mendelian genetics, in addition to Darwinian natural selection. That's like saying "Capitalism is dead. Long live the socio-monetary theories of Adam Smith!"

Methinks you aren't judging the science so much as placing every scientist you hear about into the categories "Christian" and "enemies."

Edit @JohnTheAtheist: No, that's sexual selection. Darwin's theory of natural selection is the ordinary, non-fucking foundation. [wink]

Actually Darwin's theory is the fucking foundation of modern biology.

Where the fuck do they get these idiotic notions from? Are they all fucking home schooled?

The Modern Theory of Evolution = Synthesis of Genetics and Evolution.

I have a degree in English and I can't parse this sentence. Time to put down the bong.

Genetics defeated evolution? Someone needs to tell him about ERVs, human chromosome 2, and the vitamin C gene.

Many many many things are continuing not to occur. The Rapture springs to mind.

"Darwin was a great man who came up with a theory that actually has nothing to do with modern Biology."

Because natural selection is so very inconsequential.

"Genetics, the field of science established by Christian Creationist Gregor Mendel"

That a field was founded by a creationist doesn't make creationism true; it just means his science was well-supported.

"better technology in finding and categorizing fossils that plainly show stasis"

What now? Maybe in some cases, but not in all.

"many more fields of excellent biological research all lead to the conclusion that Evolution is scientifically impossible"

So. . . why, if evolution is scientifically impossible, are animal behavior, population biology, ecology, genetics, taxonomy, anatomy, molecular biology, cell biology, [insert biology field here] all taught with lots of evolutionary theory in the mix in universities around the world?

"uneducated few"

Like the entire field of evolutionary biology?

The quote is wrongly attributed. It is DrPepper12 that wrote this, not ElProximo.

ETA: I'm mistaken. It is ElProximo. Something weird about that site though. DrPepper said the same thing but seems to be disagreeing with it thought he wrote it first?
