A poker game has hands. A watch has hands. A person has hands. Therefore all must share a common ancestor, right? That's inductive reasoning.

You can't be serious.

that post just made my day. That wins the all time cutest post ever award.

To be fair they all do have a common ancestor. Humans created both poker and wathces, so even though this is an idiotic post there is some truth in it.
The new format seems kind of weird to me. I suppose I'll get used to it soon.

I stand corrected. Nevertheless, I got it wrong anyway. They could be construed as homographs, not homonyms. But that blows my whole Dr. Evil thing.
Just to clarify, this is actually something explained by \"convergent evolution\". Just like how birds and mammals both have 4 chamber hearts, but the most recent common ancestor they have actually had a 3 chamber heart.
I have a brian, a monkey has a brain, and a fish has a brain. So they must all share a common ancestor.
But you don't have a brain. So where the hell did you come from?
Wow.. So by the same logic you, a colostomy bag, and a toilet share a common ancestor as you are both full of...
I would imagine linguistics would be beyond someone of this reasoning capacity. And I'm right!

Brilliant? This person's either got a great sense of sarcasm or is profoundly clueless...
Yeah, real brilliant

The first two things where made by people with their hands.

Is this some kind of joke?
That actually is kind of cute.
Not morphologically, similar, though.

THEY'RE NOT THE SAME! NOTHING YOU SAY WILL EVER CHANGE THAT!!

How adorable. Like a child thinking cows can jump over the moon because they heard it in a rhyme.

I hope brilliantLiberal is an active forum member. He shows lots of potential.

A poker game has hands. A watch has hands. A person has hands. Therefore all of them must have been made by a watchmaker, right ??

This new learning amazes me... Explain again how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.

Argumentum ad semantics? Or is there a proper name for it?

Etymology != biology.

"A poker game has hands. A watch has hands. A person has hands. Therefore all must share a common ancestor, right? That's inductive reasoning."
No, that's ignorance and stupidity.
