Mr Garrison?

Is that you?

The way i understand evolution is that out of nothing some kind of single celled organisim sprang and then that evolved into a two celled organism then that eventually turned into a fish, the fish turned into a lizard the lizard branched off and turned into a bird and a mammal and then from that we get monkeys and they turned into people. If that is true wouldnt it be possible to take something that already functions such as a wristwatch and send it off to a distant planet that resembles the conditions here on earth and have some kind of mars rover put it in the dirt and over millions of years shouldnt it turn into something? No it will still be a wristwatch in the dirt.

Since you think a wristwatch, essentially a mechanical object, would have the potential to come to life and reproduce, I would say that your understanding of evolution is non-existent.
Typical for an idiot fundie.

The way i understand evolution

You started out bad and from there on it was all downhill.

Next time around don't forget to pick up a brain.

4/28/2012 12:56:41 PM


Well, yeah, a wristwatch won't evolve. It was intelligently designed by a watch company.

4/28/2012 2:00:14 PM


You're understanding is wrong.

4/28/2012 2:05:48 PM


No, because a watch is not a living thing, it is a created object. It also cannot spontaneously generate life from itself, because it lacks the proper chemical mix and the specific set of circumstances that brought about life.

As we can see, this man has yet to reach elementary. I think we should take pity on this mentally challenged man.

4/28/2012 2:42:46 PM


You are a fucking moron

4/28/2012 2:49:20 PM


Well, you understand wrong. Also, you are an idiot. That is all.

Not as much as Mr. Garrison as it is "I just heard some random stuff from some religious figure in the neighbourhood, and it must be true. Here's my jumbled recollection of what he said."

In short, so much fail that I'm surprised the guy's antics doesn't make the forum to get spontaneously renamed to "Athiest Forums" (sic). =)

"some kind of single celled organisim sprang and then that evolved"

Sorry, you got that completely wrong. The game in which you start with a single cell is Spore. A sim is always a simulation of a fully-fledged human.

They do have common ancestry, though, if you count Will Wright, ...

Good lord, the dumb, it hurts.

Wouldn't it only work if the wristwatch had Buttsex with a retarded fish-squirrel, Mr. Garrison.

Bingo! Finally a fundie gets it right. Congrats to deciple (sp?). But it doesn't just happen overnight, ya know, it takes weeks, sometimes years. Lots of years.
I remember back when I was a bird...I still have the flying dream at night...and sometimes I'm in deep water in my dreams. Yeah, a throwback to my Fish Days, for sure.
And my great grandpa, Adam MacAdam, can remember back to when he was an amoeba, and split off to form Grandma. Ahh, Grandma...she was only half the man he was.
Well! You do that stuff for, oh, say 6,000 years or so, we are. Out of the trees at last. Ooh ooh ooh.

The way you understand evolution is wrong. Here is how it works:

When a life-form reproduces, there is a chance that genetic transfer to the offspring may be altered in transmission. This is called a mutation. Mutations can be positive, negative or neutral. If they're positive, it means that the new life-form is more likely to survive and thrive. Thus over time positive mutations accumulate. This is evolution.

Of course there's more to it than that, but that's the basic idea. Please don't waste your time refuting something that has nothing to do with evolution in the first place.

Edit: @1397358

You are extremely awesome.

The wristwatch might well still be there, but there is a slight chance the bacteria on it would manage to come up with something. Or are we using a perfectly sterile wrist watch?

"If that is true ..."

"It isn't."

"...wouldn't it be possible..."


The way I understand your religion is that out of nothing a super-powerful super-intelligent timeless being appeared and since he was timeless he was always there and always male for some reason even though there was no Mrs. Claus to his Santa. He then got bored with thinking and playing with himself, so he made the whole known material universe out of more nothing by magic. Then he made people out of dirt and ribs (with no barbecue sauce!) and animals and trees out of Play Doh or something. That's when the devil taught the human woman how to steal fruit and got everyone kicked out, but eventually God turned himself into a man and sacrificed himself to himself so he wouldn't have to kill everyone but Noah a second time. If that is true, wouldn't it be possible for God to take something that already functions, like Tori Spelling's enormous head, and make a whole 'nother Universe to play with and leave us alone?

That about covers it, right?

does a watch have sex?

You don't understand evolution, time, or watches.

This video is a brilliant refutation of this concept.

"The way i understand evolution . . ."

Well there's your problem right there.

4/30/2012 5:24:56 AM


Well, no wonder you doubt the Theory of Evolution. You don't understand what it actually says!

4/30/2012 6:04:34 AM


Haven't you heard, they discoverd Cockoo-Clocks on Jupiter! What an exciting turn of events!

4/30/2012 2:14:08 PM


Did you stare at your closed textbooks in school all day, worried they would come to life and bite your hand off or something?

It sure sounds like it.

4/30/2012 3:38:05 PM


Wristwatches don't fuck. Your argument is invalid.

4/30/2012 7:29:21 PM


Abiogenesis and evolution aren't the same thing, so it's obvious that you don't understand evolution at all.
