Quote# 88309

Personally, I object to my children being taught the fairy tale that is evolution in school.

You really expect someone to sit down with a small child and teach them as such? "Son, in the beginning there was nothing. Then nothing happened to nothing and then nothing exploded into everything. Then there was goo, and that goo oozed onto a rock, that came out of the nothing, and contracted and extraordinary complex DNA programming which was just laying around minding it's own business. After this, the goo became something less gooey because it's DNA replicated itself, but actually 'oopsed' and replicated itself perfectly, but with millions of changes, into something with a fin, and the less gooey thing liked its fin, and gritted where it's teeth would be a billion years later, and chose it's offspring to have more fin-like DNA." etc, etc, etc

And that's more reasonable than "All that you see had an origin and a designer, and that designer is the all-powerful God, who created you in His image and likeness"? No, I don't have enough blind faith to be an evolutionist in any way.

"Faulty" indeed.

And who created the designer?

Finally, a fundie with a reasonable 'splanation of evolution that can be taught to very young children and babies; "Goo goo goo".
And the equally sensible creationist view, about on a par with it, and just as believable.

Well, luckily we don't need your permission.

That last sentence has so much irony that, if it were converted into mass it would create a new black hole.

I love it when fundies try to disparage evolution as a "fairytale".

"Evolution? A bunch of hooey! A talking snake, on the other hand... now that makes sense!"

"What surprises me is how extremist are foolish enough to attack science, and lose again and again, damaging their own reputation. Why not simply argue that faith is personal and is not an issue for science. That would be wiser and nothing would be lost"

"Christianity, by definition, is exclusively true. If I can say that is is "only true for me", then it is not true at all."

You even managed to fail Strawman Building 101.

You are well named, Mr. Faulty Computer Tower.

You stupid fuck. I'd say something more profound, but I've seen this comment a million times and I just don't care anymore.

And that's more reasonable than "All that you see had an origin and a designer, and that designer is the all-powerful God, who created you in His image and likeness"?

Yes. Yes, it is.

Please home-school your children. We need more burger flippers.

*sigh*

I suppose it's easy to object to something you don't have a clue about, so you make up some inane and incomprehensible bullshit nobody in their right mind would accept.

Then again, the process I just described above sounds a lot like how religions are founded, doesn't it?

If anyone would teach that to my (not existing) son, I would bash him in the head.
They should teach the ToE, not Strawman!ToE.

Personally, I object to my children being taught the fairy tale that the world is round in school.

You really expect someone to sit down with a small child and teach them as such? "Son, we have to believe that the people on the other side of this supposedly round world don't fall off like they should. No, everything falls towards the middle because of this imaginary, invisible force the atheists call gravity."

And that's more reasonable than "Just look around you, it's flat!"?

I am through with refuting their claims. Since America is little different from Iran, it is completely pointless. In Europe, nobody advocates creationism in public schools. Where did American history go wrong?

"Son, in the beginning there was nothing. Then nothing happened to nothing and then nothing exploded into everything"

I'm sure that strawman is still a hellova lot better than

Son in the beginning there was nothing, then nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically became an all-powerful God, who created you in His image and likeness

I propose that what you really object to is that your children would understand the concept far better than you've demonstrated in your ignorant rant and see you as the fucking moron you really are.

Well, at least the OP's screen name is accurate. Little else of that blargle is.

They just can't seem to get the hang of the equation OBSERVATION + OBSERVATION + ANALYSIS = HYPOTHESIS + PREDICTION = THEORY can they?

Sorry buddy, but repeat after me.... MAGIC... ISN'T... REAL. Repeat anytime you start thinking these delusional thoughts.

I'm under the "wrong" impression that I can be Christian and still believe in evolution, among other sciences. Amazing, huh?

Well, you were clearly never taught evolution, because that BEARS NO FUCKING RESEMBLANCE TO IT.

So yes. What you're saying is that we should teach them myths about a magical man that came from NOTHING that came and poofed the world into existence. Instead of teaching them what ACTUALLY FUCKING HAPPENED.

If I believed that evolution bore any similarity to your warped description of it, then I'd object to my children being taught it too.
