Right. As we keep pointing out, you don't even have a first-grade level understanding of evolution. And you make that blindingly obvious with every post, but are not even smart enough to realize it.

Almost painful to watch, really, even if it is someone I don't like. It's the equivalent of watching a drunk stumble around a room full of sober people, telling disgusting jokes and humping the sofa, thinking everyone is amazed at how clever he is. Difference is, the drunk at least wakes up sober the next morning.

That's the thing. If creationists want to try to argue against evolution, they should at least know what evolution actually is and how it works. Instead, they throw out punchlines that anybody with a basic elementary school science education could debunk like "If humans came from monkeys why are there still monkeys?" and expect it to be convincing.

The irony is, there really are good arguments to be made in challenging evolution, but evolution-deniers rarely make them. Because to understand those arguments, you must first have a basic understanding of evolution itself, and most of them are quite frankly too stupid to understand it.

No species has ever had a "partially formed wing". Where would you even get an idea like that??? Here's a hint: do some research on the relationship between theropod dinosaurs and modern birds.

Like I said you obviously don't understand how evolution works making statements like that. I'm not going to give a science lesson in evolution to someone who doesn't even understand the basic concepts and rejects it so completely as you do.

can you throw out one of these good arguments against, just so we'll have something semi-worthwhile to discuss?

Dammit, can't find it now. There was a great quote about how every new theory has to survive all the sticks and stones thrown at it from the scientific establishment before it gains acceptance, and that's fine - but now we have the creationists arriving late, throwing marshmallows and yet they still expect to be taken seriously.

Yes, this has become pathetic. I was entertained with all of these moronic postings but think putting it on ignore is the best coarse of action. Let me leave something actually entertaining.

Even my 8-yr-old nephew is smart enough to understand that is not the logic.

You must have started skipping school at a very young age. Most of what the theory said requires only a basic elementary or junior high level of schooling to understand.

You are only reinforcing the sad conservative stereotypes with this type of threads.

Man, I really wish this were a fake photo, but it isn't:




Yes, we literally have people in this thread that believe stuff like what is shown in that photo from the creationist museum in KY (yes it actually exists) telling scientists on the ins and outs of evolution.
