ok glad we have that settled...

now if everyone is finished with the character defamation, Christian bashing, and Theism denial maybe we could get back to discussing the topic of Evolution and Sociobiology.

I am reading page #2 at the moment, so please be just a little patient and I will respond in accord with the topic and any logical/serious responses.

Hitler was an occultist who began to doubt his religion mattered as much as everyone claimed it did. Ergo, he decided to drop it like its hot.

also the way you try to disassemble everyone and each single sentence they write serves no purpose... It shows much of your character... there is no use in speaking with someone such as this.

when some people learn to write paragraphs maybe other will read and respond to you also...

you seriously think I am the only one not reading that long-winded garbage ?


It shows that he's actually willing to DISCUSS and talk about facts. You on the other hand blatantly ignore every single point people make against you if you can't come up with some lame 1-liner answer.

maybe you should mention that to MIMS ?

some people are apperently the master of the one-liners and post about fifty of them as a response...

yes that is a 'fact'

topic is Evolution and its Dark Face fellas

There is no such thing as Darwinism, it is a word made up by Creationists.

Next. Evolution is a known fact, it has been proven over and over again, and we have mapped so many genomes now, that there is absolutely no doubt whether or not evolution happens.
Why it happens, and exactly how it happens, that is the theory!

Only ignorants can agree with the OP, and unfortunately there are really allot of ignorants in the world.
Believe what you want, but don't make up stuff about Evolution! It has been proven over and over again!

Evolution isn't evil/good/funny/etc....it's a natural process that is happening FOR A FACT!! We've have hard scientific evidence, using the findings in modern medicine, and have a ridiculously expansive fossil record. You acting as if evolution poured sand into your vagina is laughable...about as laughable as if you were angry at gravity for pinning you to the earth


Also, you attacking Madness for not giving proper long answers is even more laughable. I know no other guy on these forums who so consistently answers to every single point others raise. Just look at the length of most of his posts, he really discusses every single point...unlike you do.

Whatever Darwin said, evolution and the proof of evolution is not standing still:

www.newscientist.com...

It is a fact and has various scientist working on its basis - trimming the edges and trying to understand what quantify [and hence be able top predict] evolution. As the previous chappie says, they have mapped the genome, they know that the eye has evolved on 4 separate occasions. Even on a smaller scale, we have seen over the last 200 years survivals of species hanging by a thread due to various changes.

Even if Darwin put babies in the oven [which I don't think he did], this does not change what the discovery means and how much it has been tested and how much it has been ratified by so many great and noble scientists after.

Quite ironically is was a monk - Mendelev - who did a lot of scientific ground work in the genetics field, which provided the mechanism for evolution to work

I'm glad this topic was made! It brings comedy to an otherwise serious board.

Let's start off with this. Atheism and Evolution have absolutely no connection to each other WHAT SO EVER!

Atheism is merely the lack of believe in a god. It has nothing to do with how life came to earth, what happened to this life once it was on earth, or anything to do with biology or even science as a whole. Believe it or not, but I know A LOT of atheists that don't accept Evolution. Doesn't that just blow your mind!?!?!? well it shouldn't, because if you knew anything about Atheism and Evolution, this is perfectly reasonable and obvious.

Evolution has nothing to do with proving or disproving a god. It has nothing to do with any gods or theistic beliefs or anything. Evolution is a SCIENTIFIC THEORY. the only thing it deals with is SCIENCE. Because it is based on SCIENCE ONLY anyone can accept it or reject it. I know just as many theists that accept Evolution than I do Atheists. Also, not very surprising if you could just grasp both topics.

Now, I understand why Evolution is a big threat to you. It's very easy to understand the basics of it. Unfortunately you were still unable to grasp the entirety of the processes of it however. All you see is that Evolution is a threat to your religious beliefs (if you take your religious beliefs as 100% fact, rather than more-so of a guide book/metaphorical texts [to a degree]). Because you take your religious beliefs as absolute truth, rather than rationally, it makes it much easier for you to manipulate actual facts as something they are not because you believe something that is a metaphorical story/intensely hyperbolic as fact. All of a sudden something (fact) doesn't fit with your beliefs (metaphorical/hyperbolic to a degree). so it must automatically make that something (fact) incorrect.

What you don't seem to realize, however, is that ALL OF BIOLOGY renders the your religious beliefs as false. and what you don't seem to realize is that Gravity is a much more powerful threat to your religious beliefs (because of the time line they [your beliefs] suggest) than Evolution could ever do. But the reason you don't attack Gravity is because you don't fully understand it. it's a bit more difficult to grasp than evolution in it's grand theory. The formation of galaxies and planets and the light stars produce attack your religious belief at it's very beginning, rather than just one minuscule point (How life came to be).

Your so misinformed about evolution that I'm guessing you think it's about how life started on earth. In which case you'd be very incorrect. you see, we have Scientific theories about Abiogenesis (technically, creation, according to the bible, is one of those theories... just not a scientific one) that attempt to explain how life started on this planet. If you did know that then, then tell me, why aren't you attacking those theories? they are just as big a threat as Evolution is?

Yes it does, it shows that I can address individual points because that's how arguments are made. And you use improper punctuation, how am I supposed to know where one point ends and another begins? Hell, I can simlpy



It shows much of your character... there is no use in speaking with someone such as this.


With someone that doesn't take male bovine fecal matter such as baseless bigotry? I mean, honestly, you just resorted to a character attack. Granted, that's nothing new, you have referred to me as someone with an IQ below 85, addicted to heroin, an evildoer, etc.



when some people learn to write paragraphs maybe other will read and respond to you also...


Wow, you copy pasted a statement you made from when I first encountered you. Bravo. I'd like to point out that this post is not in paragraph form, contains improper punctuation, contains improper capitalization, and is generally a useless post.



you seriously think I am the only one not reading that long-winded garbage ?


Ah, so because the posts that demolish your points are long-winded you won't address them? I mean, I didn't do a point by point on the Einstein quotes, you ignored that. I didn't do a point-by-point on a lot of the posts you ignored. You're just being a childish person now. I'm not attacking your character, I'm simply labeling this behavior as childish.

Lots of people post in manners I'm unhappy with, yet I still respond. I respond to posts that are 2000 words that don't have any sort of paragraphing and are just massive walls of text.

Grow up, lrn2internet.

I didn't bail out of RFT, I've probably posted a dozen times there today. I was trying to get a lot of work done yesterday, considering that I'm actually an active student and have over a dozen assignments to complete soon. A day without posting isn't abandonment. Especially at this time of year.

Of course, you're the one who hasn't read the Bible with this ignorant statement. Christians are supposed to turn the other cheek, no?

Oh, and this isn't a new phenomenon, you've ignored me repeatedly in other threads for various ignorant reasons.

Um...you're defaming your own character. You've made numerous claims against a group of people and a historical figure that you cannot support with evidence and that I've outwardly refuted.



Christian bashing,


Please point out any Christian bashing. And yes, I'm taking apart this point in a 'long-winded' manner because it's a blatant lie.



and Theism denial


Wow, so atheism is now akin to bashing a religious group. Your bigotry keeps showing more and more. Oh yes, I'm going to independently address bigoted statements in my 'long-winded' manner.



maybe we could get back to discussing the topic of Evolution and Sociobiology.


Well, if you actually said anything meaningful on either of those subjects, or displayed any level of knowledge on them, or could even define either of them, we could have a discussion.



I am reading page #2 at the moment, so please be just a little patient and I will respond in accord with the topic and any logical/serious responses.


No, you'll respond to the responses you find easiest to respond to an ignore those that bring up evidence. You'll take two sentences out of a 1000 word post and respond to them. You won't actually respond properly.

Thank you for making that post, I was about to make one like it, but you got to it before me.

You make all the points that I wanted to make.

And I know evolution is a fact, and it fit just perfectly into my theist view of the world!

Ha! And I guess the teachings of Christ did not contribute to child crusade and overall killing in god's name beyond anything the pagan gods have seen (taking into account written history)?

Please... people will see only what they want. Each idea, good or bad, can be turned over to fit one's vision.

I wish peple would see that and stop with the endless propaganda.

It's getting tiring.

again circular-logic, where one is doing a very poor job at putting words in my mouth, I believe you have read my posts on Evolution and me accepting it as fact. though it still is not THE answer to everything... it is however an answer and a tool for those who wish to use it to do harm or belittlement. Darwins theory does something to people and there is evidence for this "Fact" in these videos.


Also, you attacking Madness for not giving proper long answers

I am not attacking anyone, I am simply pointing out another "Fact" about how some people think making a conversation based on all one-liners constitutes a discussion...

it does not.

But Darwin is stating a natural process, we are a part of it, of course we are somehow involved in it. Women have been growing shorter on average over the last 200 years, so clearly we're still evolving.

I really don't get your point. Are you blaming Darwin for a natural fact???


I mean, what's next? If you fall down, wanna blame Newton because of Newtonian physics??

Not only are women getting shorter, their pelvis isn't evolving fast enough, at least not as fast as our brain is growing. Which leads to more caesarian births!

those who wish to use it as a tool it would seem they have a certain twist to that which it is supposed to teach (see video at page 1) there is evidence of this even on this very site and by some proudly self-proclaimed Atheists.

Of course they are kids so we must respect that road too.

Evolution is getting a bad rap and it is also possibly some hint of why it is being attacked in school ? it would seem that even 'knowledge' of evolution, which in turn could be perceived as 'power' corrupts absolutely.

I accept evolution for what we are supposed to take from it as a learning tool.

these Kids have no real knowledge of Evolution nor have they even read any of Darwins books... there is evidence of that here on this site too.

if one had knowledge of both the theory of evolution and Creationism I think everyone would have a better understanding of all this power that is trying to be wielded.

You're absolutely correct, it only explains biodiversity. You offered to provide proof that people were claiming it was the answer to everything in another thread and failed to do so. Either provide that proof or please stop making such a ridiculous assertion. I have never heard anyone say that the theory of evolution explains everything. Ever.

Many things can do harm when misused. We can use nuclear fission to efficiently power the planet, or we can use it as a weapon of mass destruction. Ideas are no different. Religion has been used to commit atrocities, but that's not an indictment of religion. The use of those things to cause harm is an indictment of the user. If those people didn't have the theory of evolution to use to justify their ends, they'd find another tool to do the job. Ultimately, you're confusing cause for means.
