So, what you're saying is that because there is no life anywhere else in the universe, evolution is false? That doesn't really follow, but I'm feeling generous today, so we'll look past that. Now, just run along and check the entire rest of the universe for signs of life. We'll wait.

The moon and the earth are the sum total of the universe, are they?
2/28/2013 5:08:48 AM
Isn't it actually just the other way round?
Evolution happens because the universe isn't optimized for sustaining life, so all life has to compete for resources. And because the universe isn't optimized for sustaining life, you'd expect there to be locations where no life can exist at all, so a lifeless moon (and by extension, most of the universe) is entirely consistent with science.
On the other hand, creationists like ~TW~ believe that God made the universe for humans and uninhabitable places in outer space simply don't fit into that world view because they indicate bad design, so either God's design is flawed or the assumed purpose (sustaining mankind) is wrong.
Of course Creationists will try to manoeuvre around this by claiming that "Original Sin" corrupted the world, which I guess means that the Moon, the rest of the solar system, the Milky Way Galaxy and all the rest simply popped into existence when Eve took a bite out of that apple.

Further on in the thread TW admits that he won't accept anything, presumably including Jesus Himself stopping by and giving him a slideshow, as evidence of evolution. the poor thing sounds like he swallowed Ken Ham.

Um, so how exactly is life supposed to evolve in a vacuum, when all life as we know it needs oxygen to survive?
Actually, the fact there is no life on the moon supports evolution a lot more than creation.

There's no life in his brain and he's simple
2/28/2013 6:22:47 AM
You are simple when will you see it.
2/28/2013 6:54:42 AM
@DoubtingThomas: far less than half of the organisms on this planet require oxygen to survive. (See for instance: plants and anaerobic bacteria).
TW is still an idiot. I'm embarrassed because those are my initials, too.

The Moon? Well, considering that the likes of Neil Armstrong & Dr. Buzz Aldrin have been up there already, and seen for themselves the 'Beautiful
' of our nearest celestial body, why are you so short-sighted TL;DR? How about looking a bit
? Just ask Dennis Tito.
He's looking for people to go to Mars; and as there is ice - and therefore
- there, then...!
...oh, and as fossilised bacteria have been found on a meteorite that landed on Earth, which has been
to have originated on Mars,
then we Atheists already are already one step ahead of you Creationists, before the argument on life
Earth has already started.

Yes, because there's no life on the moon, evolution isn't true. I can buy that.
Also, because there's no life on the moon, Bible God isn't true. I can buy that as well.
If there was a Bible God, don't you think He would've populated the moon with potential Hell fodder? You know it makes sense. Why create a heavenly body and let it be lifeless when it could just as easily be full of people and their sin (whatever that is)?
Isn't Bible God lazy? Isn't He guilty of a wonderful opportunity for enacting everlasting tortures?
I think He is. What a waster.
2/28/2013 7:40:53 AM
And if there was life on the moon, what would you say? There's no life on the sun, so evolution must not have happened?

My toaster isn't red, thus it can be inferred tacos taste terrible.

Also because my waffles are soggy, God is a nematode.

That's a whole lot of stupid in so few words.
Let me point out that there is no religion on the moon either. Does that make religion untrue?
2/28/2013 8:19:35 AM
Yes its simple when will you see it.
Er...no, I don't know how I will actually.
It just explains why there is no evolution on the moon.
Only living things evolve and they need water and air, two things the moon doesn't have. Earth on the other hand has plenty of both, see how that works?
2/28/2013 8:22:51 AM
There are no clouds on the Moon so rain doesn't exist either.
2/28/2013 9:25:10 AM
Given that evolution has been observed and documented as it happens... TW is full of shit.
2/28/2013 10:22:44 AM
So what you're really saying is you don't understand evolution.
2/28/2013 11:31:46 AM
there isn't water on the moon ergo the water cycle is a atheist plot to deny god's eternal water fountain that he placed in the garden of eden.
2/28/2013 1:10:50 PM
There's no life in vodka, a blast furnace or a nuclear reactor, either, but that doesn't disprove evolution.
2/28/2013 1:30:08 PM
There's no life in Sioux City after 9 PM, but that doesn't disprove evolution.
2/28/2013 2:17:00 PM
Oh, so all of a sudden.......seeing is believing when it comes to topics on religion....thats a first
