Okay you know what?
THE ONES THAT DON'T SUCK LIVE. EVERYTHING ELSE DIES.
That's the gist of it. Any questions?

I like Scott's explanation.

\"Argumentum ad illiteracy\"?

And yet, if it was in plain language that even they could understand, they'd argue that it wasn't official sounding or whatever... go figure.

So you're saying that evolution is false because you don't understand the scientific documentation supporting it? How incredulous of you. I think that instead of evolution, you should concentrate on your vocabulary first.

In other words:
\"Dumb it down for me, ya buncha highbrows\".

I am about 6 years younger than you and I can read that artical just fine. If you are unable to comprehend large words, go back to school dumbass! I don't believe that everything should be restrained by the average reading level of an American or a 12 year old child.

I'm a humanities major who hasn't taken a science class since 11th grade, yet, reading carefully, I have very little trouble understanding what is written about evolution. Don't blame science for your own failings.

IF it was proof of evolution they would speak in plain terms so everyone could know they are right.
Like the bible?
The difference is, 'complex' words are just words you haven't learned yet. You can, and then the article WILL make sense.
But even though I understand the words printed in the bible, unlike science it is written in, parables, allegory, dreams, and contrast to known physical laws. Kinda makes a diff there, Mikey.

They use words to explain something that you, apparently, don´t get but works, not to look intelligent, which you ALWAYS try.

Here's a good idea: BUY A FUCKING DICTIONARY!

Mike. Please, sit down here and read this with me:-
Once upon a time there was a buch of little daddy animals and a buch of little mummy animals. Like most mummies and daddies, they had little baby animals.
After a while, some of the babies were able to grow up and be mummies and daddies of their own because they lived long enough to have babies. But the sad little ones who had something wrong with them went to heaven because they were too slow to run away from the tigers.
After a long time because only the bestest and fastest animals lived long enough to have babies their babies got faster and faster with each new bunch of kids, the tigers were too slow to catch any of the little animals and because the tigers did not have enough to eat the baby tigers started going to heaven before they could grow up and have babies of their own!
But - and here is the really smart bit! - some of the baby tigers were fast enough to catch the little animals and they all grew up to be mummies and daddies. So the tigers and the little animals all got to be very fast runners.
Now these tigers lived a long way away from all the other tigers in the Jungle in India and because they got to be faster runners, every time they had a new gen-er-ation (remember that word Mike? - it means each new batch of babies born; like you and your brother is one gen-er-ation, your Mum and Dad is another and your Gran and Grandad is another one again), each new gen-er-ation looked a bit different until after a lot of new gen-er-ations we had big strong tigers in India ('cos they did not have to chase little fast animals but big strong ones) and fast tigers in Africa.
Because they looked different we call the African ones Leopards.
If a leopard and a tiger were to meet and get married and want to have babies, because they are so different now it would be very very hard and probably the baby would not grow in the mummy's tummy like when your little brother was born.
It would be like on Star Trek if Deanna and Worf got married and wanted to have babies, it would probably not happen.
That is how e-vo-lu-tion works Mike.

Paraphrased: If I don't understand it, it ain't real.

I hate to break it to you Mikey but science IS complex. If you don't understand a word look it up.
However sometimes people do use complex sounding words to make their bullshit ideas sound plausable, ID advocates for instance.
10/31/2006 10:32:06 AM
You would understand the terminology if you took the time to look up the words you didn't understand. That's called learning, Mike.

Oh, dearie me. So what, Mr. Jones? Because you can't be bothered to look up the words, it's wrong? How's about you read the Bible, huh? Plenty of stuff there that's even more ambiguous.
10/31/2006 11:32:46 AM
It's just no fun when they make it this easy.
10/31/2006 11:35:22 AM
Afraid of cracking open a dictionary once in a while?

We need to push to have this quote put on public display wherever fundies try to post the ten commandments....
