Yeah, uhh, that's called a strawman.

"You can see the world around you and think it just happened, you accept the hysterical lie of religion that says, thousands of years ago, there was a 'God' who made everything, and a few thousand years later, poof here you are? And you call science a "lie", are you for real?"

Big Bang =\= Evolution. Period. Do not pass go.
11/12/2007 1:58:47 PM
The big bang was not an explosion. Evolution is biology not cosmology. Natural selection is not random. Evolution happened a lot slower than poof.
11/12/2007 2:25:12 PM
This does sound like a fairy tale, it's nothing like the theory of evolution.
11/12/2007 2:37:09 PM
Yes, fairy tale, because EVOLUTION DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.
11/12/2007 2:49:11 PM
Only the fundy version of evolution says those things. You might try to find out what evolution actually says, but I guess that's asking a lot.
11/12/2007 2:50:25 PM
The old "I personally don't see how it could be true, therefore it's false" argument, a.k.a., the "argument from personal incredulity".
11/12/2007 3:07:28 PM
Oh little Fundy, you try so hard don't you. You even got the "Tale" part of Fairy Tale wrong. That's okay though. Sit down. have some coacoa and we'll look for your parents.

Well, it is Yahoo Answers.
11/12/2007 3:55:19 PM
This isn't even close to fundie. This is logical reasoning. Why is this posted here???
11/12/2007 3:59:11 PM
Dammit, where's that EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY graphic when you need it?
11/12/2007 4:24:19 PM
So the real story is: Some people were made out of dirt, ran into a talking snake who convinced them to break a rule that they didn't know existed because the perfect being that created them in his image included evil that supposedly didn't exist in him within those beings. Yeah, that makes real sense!!!!

Fundtards can't grasp the simple fact that evolution and astrophysics are different branches of science.
11/12/2007 5:00:54 PM
"poof here you are?" no no that how you all think life got started not us ..
11/12/2007 5:14:20 PM
The ToE says nothing about the Big Bang. nor does it say or imply that "sludge grew legs, climbed a tree, and poof here you are." The fact that you are against the ToE without even understanding what it says shows that you are an ignorant asshat.
I don't call faith a "fairy tail," I call the Bible stories fairy TALES.
11/12/2007 5:15:10 PM
If that's what evolution actually said, I'd agree with you.
As that's most assuredly untrue, I must call you a dumbass...
11/12/2007 6:15:40 PM
And the bible is completely factual?
11/12/2007 6:37:51 PM
No. Are you?
11/12/2007 7:53:30 PM
Evolution =/= Big Bang and it =/= abiogensis, and it does not work that way!
11/12/2007 8:01:37 PM
I honestly have never heard evolution say anything even remotely like
"billions of years ago, there was an explosion, and billions of years later, chemicals just happened to work together, and billions of years later, they crawled out of the sludge grew legs climbed a tree, and poof here you are"
Funny thing that, For it to be a lie of evolution, Evolution would have to say it... Guess you fail.
11/12/2007 8:47:05 PM
*sigh* I wonder if the scientist who came up with the name "Big Bang" knows what horrible misunderstandings he's engendered. It wasn't an explosion. It was the expansion of space-time. I don't think humans will ever be able to fully understand it beyond the more concrete equations on a chalkboard and the measurements from telescopes that tell us it's true.
As for who here has the true fairy tale... "some random, all powerful being starts talking and POOF, everything's here" sounds an awful lot like a fairy tale to me.
11/12/2007 10:06:50 PM
I like how s/he rolls over "billions of years" so casually, as if s/he is even capable of comprehending it, let alone able to make an educated statement about what's possible in that amount of time.
11/12/2007 11:28:16 PM
EVOLUTION DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!
