Exactly what is he trying to say?

\"IF \"it doesn't matter how it came about,\" then WHY do \"EVOLUTIONISTS\" (it seems that some of your friends can't countenance being called \"Darwinists\" for some strange reason
Well, for one, evolution theory has changed a lot since Darwin's time. Though Darwin was the first to publish a major work on evolution, it is not his work purely, and in fact, many of the ideas set forth in his book have since been proven wrong.
The difference between Christianity and \"Darwinism\" is that we do not accept the ideas that Darwin put forth as truth. In fact, as soon as an overwhelming body of evidence proves otherwise, any common theory will be taken from textbooks, etc.
While it is a simple matter for \"EVOLUTIONISTS\" to mock and ridicule the abject stupidity of \"fundies,\" whether or not they even have a religion, it is inexcusable for practitioners of what is supposed to be PURE and OBJECTIVE \"SCIENCE\" to be so inconsistent.
I don't see an inconsistancy. Sorry.

Darth Wang: I think it was something along the lines of: \"I'm Mirabile, and I'm the biggest idiot ever!!!!!\"

When I glance over a paragraph and it has sporadically capitalized words, I twitch a little and move on.

our perjoratives are founded in truth. fundie is short for fundamentalist. Bible thumping is aggressively expounding the beliefs of the bible. And I have never heard of anyone call a fundie a flat-earther,perhaps it is because, they have since stopped promoting the flat earth idea. Darwinism isn't even creative, it was actually a term used to describe people who believed in darwins version of evolution, it really isn't derogatory, but, just wrong. Also, I think there is a fair number of scientists who believe in a god.
I am suprised, Mirabile almost comes off smart, what with the correct usage of all those 5-dollar words. The arbitrary capitalization, and not knowing the difference between darwinism and evolution really take away any possiblity of actual intelligence.

Okay I've got it. He's misinterpreting the common statement that TOE does not address biogenesis, then he's responding:
If it doesn't matter to you how life first appeared, why do you argue it happened naturally?
Scientists shouldn't be so inconsistent.
The question is fragmented, and suspended in a homogeneous flab of imagined oppression.
And darwinist isn't pejorative, it's just wrong. "Fundie" and "bible-thumper" are not only accurate, they're what fundies aspire to.
Same with "evolutionist". Except that word was created for a dumb reason.

Ah but you see it does matter how things came about. By studying evolution we have been able to make tremendous advancements in a variety of fields, including medicine, agriculture and aeronautics. Would you care to tell us what advances came about as a result of studying creationism?
How 'bout just one?
I rest my case.

"IF "it doesn't matter how it came about," then WHY do "EVOLUTIONISTS" (it seems that some of your friends can't countenance being called "Darwinists" for some strange reason"
Because it was happening way before we humans existed, and when we humands appeared on the scene, scientific fact proved
it was happening (and still is to this day. Two words: Usain Bolt), we simply gave it a name: Evolution.
PROTIP: The Church of England, the basis of modern Protestant Christianity as you know it, embrace Darwin's discoveries with open arms; I'm sure they wouldn't mind in the slightest being called Evolutionists, least ofg all Darwinists. After all...:
...they have him buried & memorialised in Westminster Abbey, the central place of worship of the Church of England.
"though many of them have no problem hatefully attacking others with pejoratives far worse, e.g. "fundies," and bible thumpers," and "flat earthers" to name but a few) almost universally argue pure naturalistim, devoid of "religious myths"? Are they wrong, or are you? While it is a simple matter for "EVOLUTIONISTS" to mock and ridicule the abject stupidity of "fundies," whether or not they even have a religion, it is inexcusable for practitioners of what is supposed to be PURE and OBJECTIVE "SCIENCE" to be so inconsistent."
Because we have the evidence. The facts
. We win. Therefore we have every right in the world to refer to you - who have absolutely no hard solid physical evidence to back up what your book of fairytales claims - fundies, 'Flat-Earthers', or bible-fuckers and inferior subhumans, precisely because of your continual refusal to realise that you've lost the argument before it started. And you still continue to be the inferior subhumans you are, post-Kitzmiller vs. Dover.
Objectivity doesn't enter into it. You refuse to deal with reality, and stick your heads under that security blankie you call 'belief', hoping that the nasty faith-annihilating bogeyman called 'Facts' might go away. So those insults you receive are, frankly, the least you deserve.
Because you refuse to acknowledge Reality
, you're asking to be pointed & laughed at: 'Look at the educationally inferior fundie cuntbags! What subhuman morons they are! Don't forget the magic words, fundies: 'Would you like fries with that?', as I pull up to your workplace in my car, paid for by the high-flying job with prospects, promotion & high salary that a proper reality-acknowledging & secular education brings. Now keep pointing & laughing at the stupid inferior fundie flat-earthers, and do a Nelson Muntz: HA-HA!

You mean scientists , or biologists rather than Lamorkites , Darwinophiles, or evilutionists.
Scientists are using methodologiacl naturalism when actually doing science. When not doing science they may attend Church, paint themselves yellow and hide in jars of jelly beans , or try wild sex with midgets. The activities dont cross over.
