Quote# 84989


I was taught evolution in school but one thing they don't teach is that human DNA is coiled in a helix in a CLOCKWISE manner
and all other species of plants/animals have their DNA coiled in a helix in an ANTI-CLOCKWISE manner.

If evolution exists then all of our DNA, human AND animal AND plant DNA would be coiled in an identical direction. It isn't. My sister was studying biochemistry at University at the time told me of this anomaly.

I have never been able to accept evolution since, but I still had to repeat what I'd been taught in biology class to pass my exam.

Bullshit.

Um... If you look at anything coiled from one side (top or bottom) it'll be clockwise. From the other side, it'll be counterclockwise.

Um, no it won't.

And certain species of ferns have far more chromosomes than we humans. So I guess that means we're actually inferior to plants, amirite?!

Now go breed some goats near some coloured/spotted poles, as your Holy Writ says that the offspring of this breeding near such will result in them being identical to said poles, colour/patterning-wise. That Nobel Prize awaits! [/hyper-sarcasm]

Moral: I suspect that you'll get to see Charles Darwin in heaven.

...oh yes, that's right, you won't. Via a little something called the 9th Commandment, coupled with Revelation 21:8, means that - in the words of Hudson (in "Aliens"): 'You're on an express elevator to Hell: going DOWN!' >:D

Blah blah blah, full of shit, now explain me how we can breed OGM organism with humanized genome to produce humanized ARN / hormones / full organs ?

Such organisms are not speculations. It's facts.

Good grief but not surprising, the theory of evolution is shunned in the US school system like the plague thanks to retarded religious morons and the average American is too stupid to object!

You see this is the kind of evidence that would prove humans aren't related to or evolved from any animal on Earth. A fundamental difference in our biology that can't be explained by current evolutionary biology. Except that no such thing exists. I don't know if you were lied to and you accepted it or if you're lying yourself, but human DNA is no different in structure from the DNA of every organism on the planet.

You and/or your sister are lying. You're also an idiot for not thinking to reseach this a little bit deeper before posting.

Psst. If your parents are paying for your sister's education, she might be stabbing you in the back to keep the money coming. I say foil her plans and open a book.

Okay, this is just ridiculously stupid.

Either you just made that up, or your sister is fucking with you.

Or he's fucking his sister.

ALL DNA is both CLOCKWISE and ANTI-CLOCKWISE. Notice shit inverts depending on which angle you look at it? And DNA doesn't have a proper up and down.


Fucking idiots.

@Agahnim - Appears to be a Brit - also said "studying bichemistry at University" - here in the states, we call at school or college....

Auratwilight just made the same mistake as Mudak

ALL DNA is both CLOCKWISE and ANTI-CLOCKWISE. Notice shit inverts depending on which angle you look at it?

Helices don't change handedness because you look at them from different ends! Go and have a look at the nearest telephone handset cable...

Alternatively, think about it this way. If you have a right-hand threaded nut and a right-hand threaded bolt of the same size the nut will screw onto the bolt whichever way round you hold it. Rotating the nut 180 degrees doesn't give it a left-handed thread.

Well at least they're admitting the existence of DNA. I remember a quote from one of them saying something to the effect of, "DNA is dexoyribonucleic acid. If our bodies were filled with acid, we'd just dissolve."

That's so silly that even on RR one of the Ultra Fundies called him on it.

Of course one of the others just accepted it as a fact.

Shut the fuck up. I'm an American, and I teach biology at a natural history museum/zoo. It is a matter of PERSONAL pride to me that I neither avoid nor pussy-foot around the subject of evolution, as it is the founding tenet on which all of biology rests. You bet your ass I object when a tiny minority tries to purge our textbooks! Your blithe bigotry towards all Americans, a vast and diverse group of people, shows just how arrogant and small-minded you are. You're no better than a racist that takes credit for the accomplishments of others in their race.

My public education in the subject of evolution was more 'politically correct' than I would have liked, but nonetheless it was thorough. While it's true that 60% of Americans do not believe in evolution, you would do well to remember the 40% of us that do. Don't you dare try to bully Americans just to make yourself feel smarter, you nationalist prick. I won't have it.

@J. James

To be fair Headache said "average", which generally means over 50%. So if 60% don't believe in it then that would be average.

That said as much as I don't like living in the american south I have to say not ALL of us are stupid. The stupider the louder is generally the rule, the smart ones of us just hide in shame at the association with them.

Though Headache is still an ass for the way he said it, no matter if it is true or not.

@ J.James: Kudos to you. I attended a public Southern school in the early '70's. We studied evolution. My parents studied evolution. My daughter studied evolution at a private school. If one wants to believe the Genesis story be my guest. Just do it in Sunday school. I've yet to hear of any public school around these parts (N.C.) not teaching evolution. Many children have been removed from school because it's not taught from a biblical perspective. That's their choice. I would protest if 'biblical reasoning'(oxymoron) was required in our public schools.

Sometimes hate trumps reason when it comes to us Americans. Like I give a rat's ass what somebody such as Headache thinks about my country. I have my plate full arguing with the nit-wit Americans that try and trample the rights of the rest of us.

@StickBoy Could be from Canada, we call it University as well. Also I know for a fact (unfortunately) there are a few Canadian RRers but not that there are any Brits.

@elphada

That's interesting, where I'm from the more common response is to homeschool(read: brainwash) your kids rather than send them to Jesus School. Homeschooling is the absolute worst, in my opinion. The kids that are indoctrinated in private religious schools are, in my experience, way more capable of adjusting to society than homeschooled kids. They have a sort of practiced ignorance and disintrest about evolution, biology, the sciences, and even just socializing.

The bar needs to be seriously raised for homeschooling, or it needs to be gotten rid of altogether.
