2016 Fundie of the Year Nominations!
Gee, how will you feel, when your kid hears that there's a hypothesis to explain the origins of man, other than evolution? YOU'd probably have a stroke.

Yay, my second submission in a row to get on... (my first was Chimera's).

Why on Earth would my kid hearing that there's a hypothesis to explain the origins of man cause me to masturbate?
2/5/2006 6:48:37 PM
No, I would trust my kids enough that I wouldn't much care. For one, I'd teach them enough critical thinking skills (one area sorely lacking in our school system, as you make obvious) that they'd be reasonably bullshit-resistant.

):D Yeah, I didn't think that one would make the cut, since it's critical of you guys (& true, too!). Are y'all that desperate for new submissions?

No, I just thought your comment was cute and adorable :)
I've recieved 118 submissions in the last 5 days. I've approved 50 of them. This site is doing just dandy on submissions.

I don't think I'd care. I'd ask him if he knew anything about it and if he didn't beyond hearing, I'd look it up and find out it's validity.

I've mentioned before, the origins of man are pretty moot because there are plenty of loopholes in everyone's theory.
I'll let my kids decide whatever theory they want to believe. I will raise them to be critical of the theories and be aware of where their arguements are weak, and it won't be limited to religion and origins.
and Longhorn, be as critical as you want. It's a free forum. Besides, a secular fundie was banned from here for hampering the expression of ideas, so it's not like there's really any favorites.

And of the twenty or so main creation myths, I still like \"The Giant Rainbow Serpent\" and the \"Dreamtime\" the best...

Who was banned? Teenager?

Julian - the Dreamtime is interesting, isn't it?
as for this guy.... wow.... tool of the day...

No, Teenager is very much welcome to post here.

Oh yes, I'm so terrified my child will start to question and think for himself. God forbid (sorry, couldn't resist) he EVER disagree with me on anything! Damnit, my child will only ever think like I do and will only believe what I tell him is right or else I'll give him the strap! [/sarcasm]

OMG who am I?
I moo (in every comment)therefore I am stupid (Cuase lik im only 8 LOLOLOL).

So creationism is now a hypothesis? Better tell the theologians who refer to it as doctrine. And just what are the physical tests that can support or reject this creation \"hypothesis\"?
2/7/2006 5:41:09 PM
Nope. Flying Spaghetti monster made trees, mountains and a midget first, then everything else second. To not credit him is blasphemy and you will never experience the divine embrace of his noodly appendage. R-amen.

I'll just smile when that happens! Because I have heard almost all of them, and evolution's the only one that makes sense to me.

Is this chucklehead implying YEC, ID, etc., merit the word "hypotheses"? 'Cause that's funny. Even children, those who get any education at all, know it's funny.
8/20/2007 3:45:14 AM
There are many other hypothesies, as we are well aware. Good ting all the observations point toward the same one.
8/20/2007 4:00:12 AM
Hmm, I don't have no kid, but I tell you I don't know why I'd have a stroke? Please explain? It's not like it's around everywhere is it? And how is a stroke remotely related to religion? It has nothing to do with it.
8/20/2007 6:32:31 AM
You mean abiogenesis?
8/20/2007 7:40:24 AM
Nah, it ain't worth getting worked up over.
'Hypothesis' is the right word for your favorite shtick, since it's nothing more than an unproven fairy tale.
8/20/2007 7:55:58 AM
I'd say hypothesis are welcome. If that hypothesis can incorporate what's known and can offer predictions, I'd listen to it as well. Sciece isn't cast in iron, but an alternative idea needs to explain the evidence at least as well as the original theory does. None of this causes a stroke, btw.
8/20/2007 8:10:07 AM
Please don't dignify creationism by calling it a hypothesis.
8/20/2007 8:11:37 AM
umh...Magic Man Made it!
