Thank you for the second time proving the point that the conservative mantra is :

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

If you had any knowledge of the Third Reich you would know better.

Since you refuse to address the majority of my posts, especially the parts that point out your own shortcomings, I'll simply post this for you and have done with it. I'm certain you'll dismiss it, regardless.




The Evolution of Flight

No, you did not say so, but if you believe that life on earth has been evolving for hundreds of millions of years, then you should not be discounting the fact that creatures (insects, bats, mammals, fish, what have you) developed wings over the eons.

I of course cannot explain the origin of wings, since I am not a scientist or study that field. However, I do accept the general theory of evolution of the species. It is all essentially 'theory', since we, in our brief time on Earth, cannot witness such evolution first hand. However, I tend to believe those that make such study their life work.

Much like I have not studied the Greenhouse Effect, now called Global Warming. Yet, I generally accept the basic science underlying such (developed in the 1820s). Yet, you have frequently claimed that you do not believe in that branch of science.

People that dismiss science tend to believe things like the Earth being 6,000 years old. It is curious, but there it is.

Regarding #2... You would think so, right?

But liberals forget all about the process of natural selection's role in functional evolution when it comes to certain issues.

Natural selection is the process by which species adapt to their environment. Natural selection results in evolutionary change when species members with certain characteristics have a greater survival or reproductive rate than other individuals in a species population and pass on those characteristics to their offspring.

Think about the birth statistics in the US. Women on public assistance have a birth rate 3 times higher than those who aren't on public assistance. By funding and subsidizing such, we're enabling survival of the least fit, and enabling their selection over everyone else.

Poor : Non-poor = 3 : 1

We're interfering with the process of natural selection, and thereby diverting human evolution to devolution.

The satire film Idiocracy explores the exact same issue.

Could you believe that the Holy Bible merely wrote itself? If you can't believe that, then how do you suppose extremely complex life-dependent DNA coding wrote itself. The coding must be exactly perfect or no life. There's no intellect, nor critical thinking, at all in the belief of evolution.

Itís possible that wings developed first as an aid to gliding out of trees away from predators. Individuals that could glide the furthest survived and bred offspring that could glide even better. Eventually, they realized that flapping their wings could increase glide length. Finally, wings became large enough to create enough lift to counteract weight and birds were able to lift-off off the ground.

As a Christian, I see no conflict between the existence of God and the theory of evolution. A God that created the Earth 4.5 billion years ago instead of 6000 years ago is in no way diminished. Biblical creation writers couldnít possibly know, or explain in writing, the detailed process of creation.
