"Argument from ignorance."
No, not really. Ignorance can be corrected.
What we have here is "Argument from stupidity."

They could not have developed from the elements, because elements rarely react with each other.
Cool. You won't mind if I take away your oxygen, do you? It's not like it's doing you any good.

Evolution doesn't have anything to do with those questions because evolution is a BIOLOGICAL theory and you're asking questions about CHEMISTRY. Or do you also go up to physicists and ask them how the theory of gravity can explain where babies come from?

And these questions relate to evolution how?
1/9/2012 5:34:52 PM
And chemistry has what to do with evolution by natural selection?

Aren't these all Chemistry and Physics questions? I'm not too sure; too much time around fundies, ya know.

OK, you got me . I thought adding one to each element to get the next element was pretty cool idea. I thought water falling through the air was also cool , and it took a lot of the chlorine gas out too.
Why do theese not bright people keep dissing my ideas ?
I favor soup with chicken bits, bacon and a few potatoes.
Bow down and worship BAAL ! pretty please ?

HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY

This is just willing ignorance. Mr Robert Congelliere could have learned all this if he'd just picked up a chemistry textbook. Or stayed awake in science class in high school. Or even learned how to fucking GOOGLE IT. This stuff is so basic that the only reason why he hasn't learned the answers is he doesn't really WANT to know.

Theory of evolution =/= Big Bang Theory. You must be confused because the Bible talks about the origins of the universe and the origins of Earthly life in the same book. Science doesn't work that way.

These are actually excellent questions, Robert (well, most of then are; evolution has nothing to do with origin of the elements or the synthesis of chemical compounds) but I would advise you trying to find the answers to them in the bible or religion would be a COMPLETE WASTE OF YOUR TIME as the bible is a complete cock-up when it comes to science and reality in general. So I suggest you pick up some good introductory books on astronomy and chemistry as the real story of stellar nucleosynthesis is far more interesting, compelling, and fascinating than any silly jibberish that any religion can come up with.

Uh, the elements regularly react with each other. They're rarely found on their own in nature.

Question 1. Nothing to do with evolution but here goes. Hydrogen gas forms stars which fuse hydrogen and turn it into helium. When the hydrogen runs out helium fuses to form oxygen. This process of fusing elements to make heavier ones continues until iron, when the process stops working in normal sized stars. Heavier elements are formed by supernovae.
Question 2. Don't know I'm afraid, my knowledge of physics is fairly limited. I think it's something to do with the electrical charge of protons and electrons but I'm not sure. Google it and I'm sure you'll find out.
Question 3. With the exception of a few noble gases, elements react quite easily. That's why apples go brown and why things burn. Your assumption that elements rarely react is just wrong. Oh, and that's chemistry not evolution.
Granted some of these answers are a bit vague, but I'm not a scientist and my knowledge comes from remembering what I learned in school and a few popular science books and tv programmes. Also, if you want to know about evolution, ask questions about evolution, not physics or chemistry.

What does this have to do with biology? Elements are chemistry, numbskull.
1/11/2012 5:41:13 PM
I retract my claim that there is no such thing as a stupid question.
1/12/2012 8:14:18 AM
I'm fairly certain that the elements have nothing to do with biology. Evolution is a biological process, and the elements are...I honestly don't know what they are (geology, chemistry?), but they're not biology.

Answer: NOTHING IN THAT PILE OF WORDS HAS TO DO WITH EVOLUTION, YOU NITWIT!
1/12/2012 11:03:34 PM
Now here is your problem, the word, "evolution" does not mean, "every single field of science."
1/12/2012 11:53:58 PM
What do the elements have to do with evolution. I always assumed the creationists actually knew what evolution was.
1/13/2012 5:15:58 PM
They would............if they had something to do with the theory of evolution.
1/14/2012 8:14:50 AM
If you can accept creationism at its core without questioning it, you should tolerate that not everyone who believes in evolution understands, and can repeat on demand, every aspect of the ToE as well as every scientific concept you spontaneously demand explained since middle school science onward.
Of course, even if such a person existed and had the patience/desire to indulge you, it wouldn't be enough to let their facts and evidence shake your TRUTH and FAITH, would it? No? Then kindly shut up.
