I'm back, folks. What did I miss? More bloviation, posterior pontification, and number stretching from Alfalfa Henry? So nothing, really. What a shock... But since Alfalfa Chew Toy brought up the claim of Stalin being an atheist, let's clear up that little piece of theistic propaganda bullshit: To claim that Stain was an atheist is overly simplistic. As the de facto ruler of the USSR, he initiated many purges. Many clergy were killed and this is often cited as Stalin's anti-christian mark. However, like Henry VIII he did not simply remove clergy; he replaced them. He established a new national church of Russia, which of course answered to him. He considered the church very important to extending control from Moscow to the satellite nations. Stalin's church was called the Russian Orthodox Church or The Moscow Patriarchate; and the suppressed church was called the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. They have a bitter history. Stalin was many things: a former theologian, the head of the national church, and one of the most brutal dictators in history. His own views on religion are difficult to guess since he didn't keep any journals, nor did he openly speak about his beliefs (or lack thereof). History scholars conclude that Stalin was most likely a ruler who envisioned himself as a god of sorts. Furthermore, there is the concurrent claim that the USSR was an atheist nation. While the Communist Party suppressed religious fervor, it did so only out of jealously of loyalties. The Communist Party demanded loyalty to itself above all others, even above the Christian god. Russia has always been an intensely religious nation. They consider the leader of the Eastern Orthodox Church to be equal to the Vatican's Pope, perhaps even above the Pope. Bottom Line: To claim that Russia became atheistic overnight in 1917 only to emerge deeply religious in 1989 is to show an unbelievable ignorance of Russia's history. But what Alfie Chew Toy left out was the fact that almost all of the leaders of the USSR, from Lenin to Gorbachev, except for Malenkov, were atheist or non-religious or did not have their religion documented. Yet only Stalin committed such historic atrocities. Gorbachev explicitly affirmed his atheism, but he nonetheless campaigned for religious freedom and was very friendly toward believers. But no. He only wants to cite Stalin while trying to distract you from the atheists who have done wonderful things for humanity, because in Alfie's little fantasy world, being an atheist automatically makes you a mass murderer.  Consider your bubble burst. P.S. Stalin also had a mustache. Does having a mustache make you a mass murderer, Alfie? No? Didn't think so.

+mikecucuk   Nice summary Mike. Stalin also murdered the heads of the Armed Forces and not because he hated armies, just like he didn't hate religion, like you said it was about total control of the populace through an iron fist.  I've been through this with Jerrod several times already but his circular argumentation always regularly revisits.

+Transtlan Tico "These gaps might be due to failure in fossilization, or to mistakes in the genealogy, or to wrongly identified fossils; or they could be (and have been) taken to show that the theory of evolution is wrong."   -    Colin Patterson  (1933 – 1998)  Senior Palaeontologist at British Museum of Natural History,   Evolution  (1978) p.133 "Just as pre-Darwinian biology was carried out by people whose faith was in the Creator and His plan, post-Darwinian biology is being carried out by people whose faith is in, almost, the deity of Darwin. They've seen their task as to elaborate his theory and to fill the gaps in it, to fill the trunk and twigs of the tree. But it seems to me that the theoretical framework has very little impact on the actual progress of the work in biological research. In a way some aspects of Darwinism and of neo-Darwinism seem to me to have held back the progress of science."    -   Colin Patterson  (1933 – 1998)  Senior Palaeontologist at British Museum of Natural History,   The Listener  October 8, 1981  p.392 "One of the reasons I started taking this anti-evolutionary view, or let's call it a non- evolutionary view, was last year I had a sudden realization for over twenty years I had thought I was working on evolution in some way. One morning I woke up and something had happened in the night and it struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it. That's quite a shock to learn that one can be so misled so long. Either there was something wrong with me or there was something wrong with evolutionary theory. Naturally, I know there is nothing wrong with me, so for the last few weeks I've tried putting a simple question to various people and groups of people. Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing, that is true? I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of evolutionists, and all I got there was silence for a long time and eventually one person said, "I do know one thing - it ought not to be taught in high school.""   -    Colin Patterson  (1933 – 1998)  Senior Palaeontologist at British Museum of Natural History,     "Evolutionism and Creationism"  November 5, 1981  p.1     1  2  3 Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Density sorting of substrate is what happens under water, not what we see in the earth's crust, and not even related to your weird strawman about fossils therein. How long before we crack the abiogenesis problem champ? In the 19th century it was believed as a firm fact, not to be doubted, that man couldn't inhale if he was propelled at 60 mph. We thought man could never fly. Man would definitely never set foot on the moon. Try to tell someone from 1915 about transport, communications, entertainment, medicine etc in 2015 - he'd call you a loony. Your fear of abiogenesis is religious-based, nothing more. I bet you didn't protest about the impossibility of bionic ears or artificial hearts.

Logic is a fantastic tool for guiding one's investigations through reality. However, sometimes people don't understand logic's application to the practicalities of reality, nor do they understand its limitations. A synthetic statement (a fact about reality that is supported by observation and evidence) cannot be proven by analytic statements alone (i.e. justified by pure reason, which makes them uninformative tautologies at best). Without inductive support, logical syllogisms alone cannot prove that a god exists. It is simply proof by logic. By this standard, any god could be "logicked" into existence and no one could disprove the existence of any god, which makes the standard meaningless. Not only is this inevitable, there are thousands of precedents for it from world religions. It's the very backbone of apologetics in the absence of testable evidence, which reeks of desperation.

I think I've found out which paragraph is getting him so worked up in his Social Darwinism spun rant against Darwin's Seminal Opus ! "Nevertheless, as our varieties certainly do occasionally revert in some of their characters to ancestral forms, it seems to me not improbable, that if we could succeed in naturalising, or were to cultivate, during many generations, the several races, for instance, of the cabbage, in very poor soil (in which case, however, some effect would have to be attributed to the direct action of the poor soil), that they would to a large extent, or even wholly, revert to the wild aboriginal stock."

+Zaki Aminu WHAT is the "common sense of "nothing""? People tend to give the vaccuum of space as an example of nothing for example So, are you pretending not to know that "NOTHINGNESS" is "NON-EXISTENCE"? Nothing and non-existence are distinct, saying existence comes from non-existence, as you're trying to imply, is not something people talk about as it's logically flawed and incoherent. They do not refer to nothing as non-existence because non-existence is meaningless in this discussion as existence is all that affects anything. SO WHY REFER TO YOURSELF AS "EMPEROR" then? It's called fun, you know, fun? * ARE YOU REJECTING THE DICTIONARY DEFINITION THAT SAYS IT IS A "THEORY"?* Yes because I reject the colloquial concept of theory outright and use "idea" instead and reserve theory to where it belongs, science. f you believe that ONLY YOU REALLY EXISTS - AND YOU DON'T BELIEVE YOU'RE ALWAYS RIGHT - THEN WHO DO YOU BELIEVE IS RIGHT, as a SOLIPSIST? WHO ELSE COULD POSSIBLY BE RIGHT? Solipsism doens't say only you exist, only that you can only know you exist for starters. Secondly solipsism desn't exclude the possibility of you being wrong and many hard solipsist even acknowledges that what you think is right/reality might be false, some even go as far as saying it IS false. ARE YOU SAYING THAT SCIENCE CLAIMS THAT NON-EXISTENCE CAN PRODUCE THINGS? We weren't talking about non-existence, we were talking about nothing. They are not equivalent. In many ways nothing includes the emptiness of space. YOU DON'T REALISE ALL THOSE THINGS ARE INSEPARABLY LINKED THEN, eh? You don't get that atheism has nothing to do with any of it and makes no claims. No. The Bible says that God Created the universe from of His Word - NOT NOTHINGNESS! Where did the matter come from? Is it from god? Then the universe is god and we're made out of god and you're more of a pantheist. If the matter didn't exist before it's creatio ex nihilo. Wether you said a magical phrase, used a wand or farted it doesn't matter. ONLY IF YOU'RE USING A WRONG DEFINITION OF CREATIONISM! Not at all, it does. This is the "evidence" of SOMETHING COMING OUT OF NOTHINGNESS, eh? Say non-existence if you mean non-existence because nothing carries other meanings beyond it.

As the genetic ‘junk’ pile shrinks, and the treasure chest grows, it's worth considering what has been happening to so-called "jumping genes."  These were considered part of ‘junk’ DNA by geneticists disinclined to look for function in something they didn't fully understand. Consisting of repetitive elements, called "Alu" sequences, jumping genes can move freely around the genome, but code for no proteins. What could they possibly be doing?

+Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children YET ANOTHER Spammer Sock Account In my experience most theists picture of god is extremely limited in power and scope. I just don't picture such an omnipotent omniscient being as not having at least as much intelligence & know how as the world's greatest teachers, marketers/salespersons, councilors, diplomats & whatever else you what to throw in there in terms of powers of persuasion that do nothing to take away a person's free will. Next to what I expect, your biblical god seems like a barbaric low-brow thug...unforgiving too.... when payment is demanded in full there is no true forgiveness. Setting the game so you can't afford the payment is debt bondage... a sneaky form of slavery. Atheism is the belief that a "nothing" doesn't deserve acknowledgment as a "something". Nothing more, nothing less. I guess you could say our allegiance is to sanity, rationality and integrity. Since this is the opposite of the biblical god, we must be satanists.

+brandy nicole You appear to have a very weak grasp of science. The results of research are published in thousands of journals aimed at specialists, and for that reason not accessible to a general audience. However, on topics of general interest – evolution is an example – books are available that pull together the main ideas and their basis for the lay reader. I recommend that you start there. If you wish to dig more deeply, that is of course possible because most such books include numerous literature citations for that purpose. Once again, your difficulty is not lack of access. It is your resistance to becoming informed.

Gosh Bill Nye I used to like you but I really don't vlike you right now. XD It's something how I clicked on this video and we were actually talking about this at bible study last night, and the thing is it's so wrong to believe in fully the bible and not take in some science and it's so wrong to believe fullybin science but not the bible, it all is supposed to go together. And my pastor gave us a report to work on he wanted us to find the anatomy of the knee and if we studied enough to find out we would understand the anatomy of the body of Christ. And right after we got off that subject he talked about the big boom and the evolution and whatever, well he said something that pretty much amazed me and I'd never thought of it but he said you know what there could've been a big boom and after that God created the world xD I was like yea there could've been but he wasn't actually confirming it but he was just stating his opinion on what could've happened. And guess what God created it all and people should know that God is like a mystery, and the Bible isn't literal or word for word which goes for science. Science is like a mystery so sometimes people get things wrong and misinterpret. And that's why there's conflict it's just the fact that you have to he spiritual and scientific if you want to crack the hardest codes, no one has gotten there yet and God isn't going to tell you his mysteries if you don't have a relationship with him.

Denial of intelligent design is unique to the united states, when a group of atheists don't believe in it, it holds everyone back, when you don't believe in it your world is just going to be a mystery where you don't know how anything works, some people claim they don't believe in god, why? The world becomes INSANELY complicated when you don't believe in god, there are these stars with life that if they were just a little closer to other stars they wouldn't exist, believing in god explains so much and if you try to ignore that then your world just becomes a little bubble of denial that you want to hide in!

There is no proof of the evolution religion anywhere on planet EARTH. If the big bang (tiny infinitesimal imaginary dot filled with nothing) was based on any science at all we should be able to add things up huh ? If something spinning breaks loose or free in a frictionless environment like a big bang, then according to physics it should be following the law of angular momentum and everything should be spinning or rotating in the same direction. Why does the sun have almost no angular momentum while the other 9 planets contain all of it ? Why is the mass not evenly distributed if it expanded ? Why does the sun have 98 % of the mass of the solar system? Why does Uranus roll pole over pole instead of rotating normally? Why are there moons spinning backwards? Why are there planets spinning backwards? Why are there rings around planets spinning backwards? Why are there galaxies that spin backwards? If anything in space expanded or exploded slowly then why are the planets on the outside of the solar system bigger ? Why are the planets composed totally different? If the universe (single spoken sentence) is billions of years old then how do you explain the moon moving away from the earth a lil every year? ???? By mathematics the moon would have been touching the earth 1 billion years ago!!!!! And why is there a perfect 6 sided hexagram on the north pole of Saturn that never moves or dissipates even through rotation? What came first the stars to make the elements or the elements to make the stars ? You can't very well have em both randomly going poof at different times now can we ?

+brandy nicole Part 3 of 4 "Just because some athority figure said well" Science has no "authority figures". It is an open source peer-reviewed and peer-invigilated process of deduction, observation measurement, analysis and refinement. ".....see kids it happened looooong ago and far far away" You're channelling Bent Bovine again. Stop it - you're embarrassing yourself with your blatant transparency. It's obvious you have no understanding of even the basic Physics, Chemistry and Astrophysics which kick all of Bent's supposed arguments into touch. You're simply parroting what he spoon fed the gullible in the 80's and 90's. "You cant prove a fossilized bone.....was the ancestor of anyone that lived.....to say so is lying." I'd agree. You can't prove that a particular specimen had any offspring. You can be certain it had parents that lived though. You can be certain it probably wasn't the only example of its contemporary species which may themselves have had offspring. Given that 99% of all species that have ever lived on Earth have gone extinct, it's highly probable that a fossil that is found represents an example of species that no longer exist in that form. They either passed on variations that allowed their descendants to survive and reproduce themselves in a given environment or they were not able to adapt to environmental conditions which eventually caused their extinction. "Let's put it this way, lets say for a second that you or someone really does have bones that you can prove we or anything evolved from......lets assume that you weren't lied too. Why is there only like 5 specimens that are transitional apparently found ?" Why would you need them? You've just said the ancestry had been proved and that nobody lied. Not all things that die make it to the fossil stage. Fossilization depends on tissue type and geological and environmental conditions and predation at the time of death. Can you show me where your great great.....great great great grandmother who lived in the 1100's is buried? Does that mean she never existed? Where would you look for her bones? America? Would you look for horse transitionals in America? "If evolution is true there should be millions of transitional bones everywhere!!!!!!!! Truck loads....but yet theres only a few" So first you guys say there are no transitionals. Then the goal posts get moved to not enough? You do realize that every confirmed transitional found creates another gap that you demand is filled? So you start with one gap between two fossil species A and B. That gets filled by fossil species C. You now have gap AC and gap CB to fill where you only started with one gap. Don't set up stupid expectations. The list of transitionals is extensive. For example The water‐to‐land transition is not a single event. It is a continuum ranging across nearly 50 My from the first tetrapods to the first amniotes.  The best and most ironic transitional fossil found was during the Dover vs Kitzmiller Trial during 2005 in transitional forms of the book "Of Pandas and People". One fossil species of the Book dated prior to 1987 used the word creationist several times. Another species of the book dated 1990 contains the phrase Design Proponent instead. But there was one manuscript which showed a paste error which said "cdesign proponentsists".  So I'd shut up about transitionals if I were you. The whole Intelligent Design movement pwnd itself hard on that one. It's the only transitional rebuttal non-creationists will ever need from now on ! "whats funny about ut is your so called most intelligent guru is a handicapped man, you cannot prove has ideas or even a voice to relay those opinions" How Christian of you! I assume you're talking about Prof. Stephen Hawking? Why do you consider him to be our most intelligent guru and why do you consider his condition funny? Science has no authority figures.

+brandy nicole Part 4 of 4:   "Heres some fun facts some really bored humans have actually sat and watched" Here comes the Gish Gallop, everyone....... "the earth is slowing down which means it actually has been meausured, if evolution is true a million years or so ago the earth would have been spinning preeeety fast......like with winds exceeding 1000mph....kinda hard for anything to live......much less move huh ?" What rate of change have you used to calculate that? Around 620 Million years ago the earth day was approx 22hours long. That represents only an 8% change in 620 million years where angular momentum has been transferred to the moon's orbit via tidal effects. So quite where you get your fanciful wind speeds from I don't know - your arse probably. In any case, what particular form of life would give a shit about winds, back then? "The sun is getting smaller also some bored idiot has sat and watched that apparently too....none the less that means it used to be bigger...okay." At what rate? The sun's radius oscillates. When the sun reaches the end of its life it will expand probably to the orbit of Venus/Earth but only then.  " If evolution is true the sun would have been touching the earth a billion years ago" Why? That will only happen when it reaches its red giant phase in around 4-5 billion years. You don't have a clue what you're talking about. The main sequence evolution of stars is well established. "......well hows that possible if evolution is true?" Stellar evolution is true. And it pisses all over your pathetic apologetics. Your extrapolations are simply wrong. "The moon is also moving away from the earth" At what rate? Is it a linear rate? "....which also means it was closer....." How much closer and when? Are you again assuming linear change? Because the accepted physics of Kepler, Newton and Einstein all disagree with you. "the angular momentum doesnt add up......." The angular momentum always adds up. It is conserved. Weren't you banging on about conservation before? Are you now throwing conservation of angular momentum out of the window? "So how about you either say there is no evidence or quit lying" False dichotomy, much? How about you stop speaking out of your arse about Physics and Cosmology you clearly have no understanding of.

Ask any rational person: Did everything come from nothing? Everyone will say no, but the irrational atheists will also say yes but pretend they don't think so And if all life came from water and the first life on this planet was really really really small and couldn't think, then how did they become bigger while the water is still not making them die because they can't breathe in it? Accident that they had that? Or did god did it? We don't mindlessly say "god did it" but atheists do mindlessly say "it must have been an accident" Oh there is this thing and it's so complicated and doing things it's like a machine... any atheist with commitment to honesty would HAVE TO say it was an accident, otherwise their atheism has been proven wrong because that means that they only don't believe in god because they have cancer of the soul which we already have evidence for but this would be the proof... so we already have the proof in this comment Believing that it's an accident takes MUCH more faith than believing in god, atheism takes MUCH more faith than believing in god, which makes it irrational and just for crazy people but they will still do it because atheism is cancer of the soul too, not just cancer of the mind It doesn't take faith to believe in intelligent design, it takes faith to believe that unitelligent beings were magically able to make their own bodies into something that can live under water without an intelligent designer setting that up Atheism: DISPROVED Atheists are deluded by their own bad souls and their hatred for god, more evidence for this is how atheists are always looking to express their hatred for god over and over again ASAP as much as possible but in their world view "god is not real" So if god is not real then why hate god... it does NOT make sense, no one can argue

Why do you assume that wealth causes poverty? Capitalism, let alone the U.S., isn't going to fail anytime soon. Poor people in America today, people who are officially in poverty, have a higher standard of living in terms of medical standards, in terms of the chances of going to college, in terms of the way people live, than middle-class people did 30 years ago. It's an extraordinary achievement of technology and of the profit sector, both of which you can attribute to the effectiveness of capitalism in our American economy.

Evolution has yet to stand up against the test of time.  However, how easily they forget that it was GOD's LAWS that pulled them out of the DARK AGES allowing them to become civilized so they could study science in the first place.  Now, NYE wants us to forget about HIM?   Okay, well let's take back all of GOD's LAWS!  Then watch us sink back into a society where we are pissing and drinking out of the same bowl; killing and stealing from each other, raping children and men and women, but there are no CONSEQUENCES...but wait, maybe this is what Evolutionist want. They want to free the prisoners and go back to the good ol'  Barbarian days where no Man was subjected to  God's Laws.   What arrogance!.  Then, why do they think they are more intelligent then past civilizations when they built this civilization on the Back Bones of Ancient Knowledge--minus Anthropology and Evolution, of course (pseudo-science)  That's just like cheating on a test, getting an A, and taking all the credit.  Basically, WE don't know shit. When you scratch the surface of Evolution, it is confusing and does not make any sense. Even Darwin said there were other forces working along with Evolution.  Sorry, Nye, I will ONLY allow my children to study science as it has always been studied in the past, and that is as GOD's CREATION.  I will allow them to be analytical and critically think about things, but in the end, they will know that SCIENCE was a gift to man from GOD- like the ANCIENTS have always taught us.

The Laws were at their beginning stages in the dark ages end the end, those laws allowed slowed down the evil that plagued Europe - allowing people to explore other things like science.  I'm not a twat.

+Benny Burkes 'The Laws were at their beginning stages in the dark ages-' No. Laws were not in 'beginning stages' during the dark ages. The laws introduced during the dark ages were directly influenced by biblical ideology. The churches were the ones calling the shots most of the time. The fact you think the dark ages was a time where 'science was explored' only serves to confirm my previous opinion that you were a twat that didn't know history. The dark ages are a period of scientific stagnation and regression (at points) due to the churches influence and calling essentially any and all scientific advancement 'heretical' with very few exceptions. This led to a period of about a thousand years where society in European territories failed to advance scientifically nor culturally. Complete stagnation coming at the hands of biblical influenced laws being enforced as ordered by the bible, that being threats or death. Now, the fact that this is the case brings a quite a few issues, mostly dealing with what it is that you said the dark ages were. You either have no idea what the dark ages are because you never studied it and decided to make crap up, or you were fed some idealized version of the dark ages from someone equally ill-informed/has an agenda. Neither of these work as both attempt to force a narrative that doesn't exist. The dark ages are not looked at as some sort of positive period of time. The dark ages are an example of what happens when you have religious zealotry in complete power. You have a period of time where science and culture do not advance and naysayers are put to death. That is the dark ages.

+Garish Belliferous do please carry on arguing for rapid evolution from Captain Noah's incestuous family From an evolutionary perspective, what is morally wrong with incest if the male & female have no defective genes as would have been the case with Adam & Eve. It would have taken several generations to accumulate a sufficient number of mutations before near kin marriages would present a problem. There was no prohibition on incest until about 2500 years after Creation (in the time of Moses). When the Mosaic law went into effect forbidding marrying near kin, this would have made sense because there were more accumulated defective genes increasing the chances of children with birth defects.

As biologist Austin Hughes cautions, they engage in “use of certain poorly conceived statistical methods to test for positive selection,” causing “the literature of evolutionary biology [to become] glutted with extravagant claims of positive selection” resulting in a “vast outpouring of pseudo-Darwinian hype [that] has been genuinely harmful to the credibility of evolutionary biology as a science.”

In 1973, origin of life theorist Leslie Orgel distinguished specified complexity as the hallmark of biological complexity: “Living organisms are distinguished by their specified complexity. Crystals are usually taken as the prototypes of simple, well-specified structures, because they consist of a very large number of identical molecules packed together in a uniform way."
Report spam or abuse
"Lumps of granite or random mixtures of polymers are examples of structures which are complex but not specified. The crystals fail to qualify as living because they lack complexity; the mixtures of polymers fail to qualify because they lack specificity.
Report spam or abuse
Orgel thus captures the fact that specified complexity, or CSI, requires both an unlikely sequence and a specific functional arrangement. Specified complexity is a much better measure of biological complexity than Shannon information, a point which the NCSE must resist because it’s much harder to generate specified complexity via Darwinian processes than mere Shannon complexity.

This is the way I see it. Disagree with me if you want, it's your choice just don't respond with hate cause there is no point. I believe there is a God. People can deny it if they want, that's your choice. But don't hate on me if my values arnt the same as yours. I don't hate bill bye because he isn't a Christian. I think it's annoying that he purposely attacks creationism, but that's besides the point. The problem isn't everybody having different beliefs. It's that we need to learn to accept people having different values other than our own. You teaching your kids Christianity doesn't mean they will become Christian, just like teaching kids evolution doesn't mean they will believe in it. You have to let people make their own choice. I for one believe in evolution to an extent. I can't deny it. But just because I don't believe we evolved from monkeys doesn't mean I disrespect you guys who believe in that any less than if you believed in Jesus. We are called to love one another. Instead of arguing over something silly (people will believe what they want to, don't try to force a change, let them figure it out), we can do some good if we just put out big egos aside. Honestly if you guys wanna hear about God I'll be more than happy to talk to you about him. I can't explain him completely but I'll tell you what/why I believe. And if you don't want to that's fine, I'm not gonna force it down your throat. In a way science and faith go together and I wish people would see that. There both GREAT. So let's just stop the arguing ok :)

+memhisrocks45 Believe what you wish. There is simply no basis for it. As to the existence of a generic god, that's a red herring. Irrelevant. What matters instead is the existence of the numerous mutually incompatible gods in which people actually believe. Those gods demonstrably don't exist because their claimed characteristics are inconsistent with empirical evidence. There is no symmetry between Christianity (belief without evidence) and evolution (a scientific theory based upon mountains of evidence). It isn't a matter of choice. No-one evolved from monkeys. We share a common ancestor with other primates. Not the same thing at all.
Report spam or abuse
+memhisrocks45 The argument between (on one hand) the correctness of an established science which has rock solid evidence supporting it and (on the other) the unsupported scribbles of primitive barbarians - is not a debate about god. It is about truth vs not truth. That the facts run counter to the claims of primitive barbarians presents many faithful with trepidation that their hopes that the promises of post mortum continuance are as fictional as the other claims. They are fearful with good reason. It is just about the hardest pill ever to swallow especially when there is apparently little to replace those empty promises. As a hedonist I faced the conundrum of whether people are better off with their delusions or with the real McCoy. In the end I sided with supporting the truth for the same reason I would help a narcotics abuser get free of his addiction.

Carcinogenesis. 2003 Jan;24(1):1-6. Cancer as an evolutionary process at the cell level: an epidemiological perspective. As in neo-Darwinian theory selection is chiefly represented by the elimination of the less fit, the selection of mutated cells would mainly consist in resistance to apoptosis or other types of 'bottlenecks' that hamper a cell's survival; an example of such a bottleneck is the autoimmunity that induces paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria in individuals with PIG-A mutations.

+shirley blair Once again, the theory of evolution has nothing to do with belief. And the facts do not depend on whether you are aware of their existence. Both the historical fact of evolution and the mechanisms by which it occurs are well established. To say that humans 'came from a single cell' is an oversimplification, no? You don't really think that that is what occurred. Why not 'believe in a creator'? How about because there is not one shred of evidence? The notion of creation is also a red herring. We now understand, through science, that the manner in which the universe, our planet, life, etc. developed over billions of years had nothing to do with divine intervention. There is therefore no basis for connecting any hypothetical creator with any contemporary theology.

If you are hungry, do you go out and get some food or do you sit on your ass and wait for the cooked food to evolve in front of you? You fucking retarded little idiot.
