Quote# 8783

Are you saying that the apes in the jungles are not apes? What are you calling them? Therefore, when you claim that humans can breed with apes, you are also including the beasts in the jungle unless you are saying they are not apes. Therefore, you cannot claim that humans can breed with apes unless you change the name of the beasts in the jungle to a different name which then defeats the whole point of evolution by saying that humans came from apes. But again, this kind of contradiction and irrationality is what happens when people try to make one species into another.

The context of this one may have been lost in the quotation, as I had no idea what this guy was trying to say.

I went to the forum linked, and let me tell you... wow. Never before have I encountered such a level of misunderstading. Most of the \"arguments\" are based on unfounded assumptions about the topic.

If you ask me, a certain quote from Charles Babbage seems to apply quite well:
\"On two occasions, I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.\"

But again, this kind of contradiction and irrationality is what happens when people who don't have a fucking brain make up shit about sciencific theories they don't understand and throttle strawmen to death with their own very hands.

This quote later in the thread is good too. It occurs after another poster explains that humans ARE apes, which is a larger classification of animals, and therefore when two humans breed, a human is breeding with an ape. Since, you know, THEY'RE BOTH APES. AND BOTH HUMAN.

He responds with:
\"Actually, to save you the trouble of either contradicting yourself or incriminating yourself, Nuggins, you have just proven that evolution is based on a lie. Your overt declaration that humans can breed with apes has said it all. It is not only again, pervserse, but a lie as well. It also shows the myriad of contradictions in the theory of evolution because when I've said that evolutionists suggest bestiality, I was severely chastized for it but now an evolutionist himself has verified that that's what evolutonists believe which is a false belief. So since I previously stated that I will not debate with an evolutionist if he contradicts himself, or takes back any staments,I have proven the theory of evolution a lie and this debate is over. But I must admit, it didn't take very long to prove evolution a lie, and by an evolutionist himself in a formal debate, no less.\"

The horror! Imagine Edmond and Dad somehow entered the equation as Godfathers, and you have one messed up critter.

That says it all.

Heidi/Carico needs to go take an eighth grade biology class over and over and over and over again until it finally pounds some sense past her wall of ignorance into her thick skull.

I don't even know where to begin. But I do like the Babbage quote, Acetv.

I like that comment; it sounds like an ABC After-School Special that didn't make the cut. . .

Ah, Carico trying to sound logical again. Can one ever tire of that? Yes, yes we can.

This is pretty tame by Carico's standards - it seems to just be the old problem of fundies not being able, or not bothering, to tell the difference between a specie and a superfamily.

The only ones confused about the close linking of Human to Apes are creationists.

We both come from similar animals, not from each other. That's made clear in every explanation I've ever seen until religion is added.

It's obvious the main tactic against evolution is to claim it states things it doesn't

Evolution and genetics fail? We may belong to the same animal family (primates) but that doesn't mean we can breed with monkeys.
