Quote# 9271

"Who am I?"
"Where did I come from?"
"Why am I here?"
"Where do I go when I die?"

If you were to ask an evolutionist , the answers to these questions are obvious. When people teach these to students , and if these students believe it , many of them would obviously think of suicide , mass killings , become like Hitler , etc...

Teaching evolution turns children into suicidal genocidal Nazis? Where in the hell do these people get their logic from?

RichardT obviously doesn't know many actual people who accept evolutionary theory, if this is how he thinks we think. This is sheer fantasy, and highly implausible fantasy at that.

Amusingly, it's Christianity that teaches you that you must hate yourself and everything in this life in order to get into Heaven.

Also, \"evolutionists\" as a group of people DON'T have a unified set of answers to these. \"Evolutionism\" isn't a dogma. \"Evolutionism\" does not have scriptures. \"Evolutionism\" does not deal with the metaphysical.

\"Aesmael\"
\"That room over there\"
\"To laugh at you RichardT\"
&
\"Nowhere\"

Somehow I don't think those answers are obvious to all 'evolutionists' and I seriously doubt the mundane details of my life would drive students to suicide.

Godwin's Law has been invoked. You lose.

only if the answers are\"

* \"A genocidal maniac\"
* \"Austria\"
* \"And so I believe to-day that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator. In standing guard against the Jew I am defending the handiwork of the Lord\"
* \"A bunker in Berlin\"

Anyone who had a high school education and is not an idiot, is an \"evolutionist.\" Or at least accept it as a prevailing scientific theory.

I believe that \"Mein Kampf\" should be required reading in every high school, so that students will learn that Hitler was a devout Catholic who believed he was doing God's will by exterminating the Jews. He considered them to be the murderers of Christ and saw himself as a warrior of Jesus.

I also think students need to learn of the witch hunts and Inquisitions, as these were carried on for hundreds of years by Christians and resulted in untold misery for thousands. Oh, and let's not forget abortion clinic bombings and the murder of gays, the KKK burning crosses in people's yards, and Dubya Bush bombing the crap out of whatever country opposes him while proclaiming that God is on our side. So many atrocities committed by Christians in the name of their god, yet evolutionists are supposedly the bad guys!

man, I now look at this and laugh, It's hilarious lol...

Wow, that sounds encouraging. I guess you have had a change of mind then? Although I guess it is unlikely you will see this and answer, and that I will see it too.

But for now I shall hope your comment, RichardT, is a demonstration of the ability of people who have been misinformed to correct their information when it is shown to be in error.

No, if you were to ask an evolutionist, s/he'd tell you science does not concern itself with such things; these are questions for a priest or philosopher. Say it with me: SCIENCE IS NOT RELIGION.

\"become like Hitler\"

A christian?

Hilter was a Christian!

I think these may actually be common questions in evangelical thinking -- the preacher whose show I direct on the local access channel was babbling on at great length about the first three of those questions last time I worked with him.

To me it just sounds like a less-profound riff on Babylon 5.

Hitler was actually a Nazi. Let's leave it at that.

1) You are you.
2) Your parents had sex.
3) See 2).
4) You stay there.

Being knowledgeable about science does not mean that a person is ignorant of or antagonistic towards ethics. As for your questions:

"Who am I?" I am, primarily, the product of my genetics, my upbringing and my choices. The same as you are the product of yours.

"Where did I come from?" My parents had sex.

"Why am I here?" See the above and include, "Because I haven't died yet."

"Where do I go when I die?" I expect that my body will be buried somewhere in a dignified but inexpensive arrangement. Anything beyond that is pure speculative.

Well, yes, the answers are quite obvious:

"Who am I?" - A member of the species "homo sapiens".
"Where did I come from?" - From a sperm cell and an ovum cell.
"Why am I here?" - Because your father and mother combined their DNA.
"Where do I go when I die?" - Into eternal nothingness.

Can anybody find here any mention of suicide, mass killings, Hitler, etc...? I can't, regardless how hard I try.

1.) I am me. More than that, I'm still searching, but frankly, I'm the only one that can find that answer, not you, not God.
2.) Calgary. Or from the Gittens and Maynard bloodlines.
3.) Who cares? Why do we need some deep, profound purpose? We're here, that's what matters.
4.) Who knows? You claim certainty yourself, but even you don't know for a fact. All you have is rumor and hearsay.

a) I am me. I don't always understand myself, but I know who I fucking am.
b) A maternity hospital, nine months after mom and dad, well, you know.
c) From a philosphical viewpoint, I don't know and don't care. From a practical viewpoint, because mum and dad, well, you know.
d) Back to where I was before I was born. My remains will most likely go either into a hole in the ground or into a crematorium, but there are other possibilities. I won't be around to give a shit about any of them.

Oh, and what the fuck has Hitler got to do with anything?

" ... would obviously think of suicide , mass killings , become like Hitler , etc..."

WHAT? How on Earth is this "obvious"?

The only thing obvious to me is that you need to have a great big note saying "Warning: MORON!" stapled to your forehead.
