The 'Creationist Concept of Evolution' Award

Quote# 79995

If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys and why aren't they transforming into humans?

The very fact that Neandertals, Homo-Erectuces are not mentioned in The Bible proves they are made up. I mean you would think God would have mentioned them 6,000 years ago when He wrote The Bible. duh.

Evolutionists were not there "millions" of years ago. They recast reality to explain anything they have no ready explanation for and glom onto any theory they find that makes them feel comfortable about the world and their place in it.

They just make this stuff up as they go along. Whereas Christians such as I always have the rock of ages, Jesus, to rely upon as a constant, consistent, force in my life.

You sound Poe-ish.
Maybe I'm just jaded.

If we've explained it to you once, we've explained it to you a hundred thousand fucking times. EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY. IT TAKES MILLIONS OF YEARS. (Something for which you have no capacity to think about, seeing as how most of you Evolution-deniers think the world is a mere 6,000 years old).

Argh. Just do us all a favor and drop dead already.

"If humans evolved from monkeys"

If people are made of dirt why is there still dirt?

"The very fact that Neandertals, Homo-Erectuces are not mentioned in The Bible proves they are made up."

We have the fossils. We win. You have the Sumerian creation myth. You lose.

And what about folks like you?

Beware of the magpies, they tend to go for shiny things - like that mirror you've got there.

The very fact that China isn't mentioned in the Bible proves that it's made up. And hopefully telling yourself that will bring you comfort as they become a world superpower while the US falls way behind because of stupid religious fucks like you.

Electrical engineering isn't mentioned in the Bible either so, by this logic, it doesn't exist. Strange how I'm making a comfortable living into the six figures on such an imaginary thing.

Christians such as I...

...are the only True Christians(tm). Everyone else is mired in false religions.

Or, the Bible is made-up, by people who didn't know about pre-historic history.

So, relying upon Jesus is making you feel comfortable about the world and your place in it? Shiny mirror...

funny how the bible doesn't mention a lot of useful stuff, you know like electricity, nuclear power, newtons laws, relativity, etc... almost like when it was written the concepts weren't known

Kangaroos aren't mentioned in the Bible. Nor, for that matter, are koalas, squirrels, pandas, Sabretoothed Tigers, raccoons, peacocks, potatoes, pineapples, poo, wee, platypi, the planet Mars, possums, polar bears, walruses or the computer. Does that mean that none of these exist?

If most Americans are descended from Europeans, then why are there still Europeans?! If you can answer that question, then you understand why you are talking nonsense. Since Native Americans exist without being mentioned in the Bible, that proves your second argument bogus. (Not to mention that, you know, we have the fossils of Neanderthals and Homo erectus, and they don't really look like any variety of modern human. Don't make arguments that can be so easily disproved.) Finally, you creationists were not there when you claim creation happened either. You weren't there for anything that happened before you were born, not to mention that you weren't there at crime scenes when crimes were committed, so how do you know that the crimes occurred? If you can answer that, then you understand why this is a bogus argument which you should stop using immediately.

I just love the "you didn't see it happen, so it's false" argument. Almost 18 years ago, I had a baby. However, my kid looks a whole lot different than the baby I know came out of my body. How do I know it's the same person? She could have been replaced with another baby or child at night while I was sleeping!

Is it possible to be more cliché? Poe is definitely a possibility here.

...Seriously?

SERIOUSLY?

The idiocy...too much...I can't...*HEADSPLOSION*

This whole post is hardly worth replying to in terms of stupidity and in terms of how many times it's been debunked already. But in terms of just how wrong it is, it is URGENTLY AND DESPERATELY WORTH RESPONDING TO. So here I go.

1) Humans did not evolve from monkeys. Humans, monkeys, and apes ALL evolved from a common ancestor which is now extinct. Monkeys and apes will not evolve into humans anymore than hummingbirds will evolve into blue jays.

2) There are lots of things not mentioned in the Bible that weren't made up. Conversely, there are lots of things that ARE mentioned in the Bible ARE made up. Like pi being 3 and insects having four legs. Your argument falls flat on its face and its butt AT THE SAME TIME.

3) YOU weren't there "millions of years ago" either. But fossils were, and THEY suggest evolution.

4) Oh yeah, Jesus/God is SO constant and consistent. "Hey, first I'm gonna create the first two humans but not give them any morals, then I'm gonna lie to them about a forbidden apple, then punish them when a serpent tells them the truth about it and they eat it. Then I'm gonna punish all their descendants for it. Then I'm gonna make a huge flood but then forbid murder. Then I'm gonna wait several hundred years to free my Chosen People, then I'm gonna punish them for complaining about their food and making a golden calf. Then I'm gonna send down my Son, who is really Me, and have him directly contradict some things I've said before. Then I'm gonna kill him to save you all from the sin I burdened you with in the first place." Sounds constant and consistent to me. Doesn't sound at all like an authoritarian, capricious, childish, sadistic, psychopathic, pathologically lying, spoiled God at all.
Oh yeah — and the Bible does not constitute evidence, any more than "Harry Potter" or "The Secret of NIMH" do.

In short, grow a brain and use the Wikipedia.

@Pikachukid

Your post is great, but as a grammar Nazi I'd like to point out that the plural of "platypus" is not "platypi", it is "platypuses".

If man was created from dirt, why is there still dirt?

I love the idea that anything not mentioned in the bible must have been made up. Way to try to keep us in the dark ages, honey.

It's also funny how evolutionists weren't there millions of years ago so they can't know that evolution is true, but creationists weren't there either, yet they know their belief is valid. Must be the "it's in the bible so it must be true" argument.

"If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys and why aren't they transforming into humans?"

Even Answers in Genesis says you shouldn't be using this argument.

"The very fact that Neandertals, Homo-Erectuces are not mentioned in The Bible proves they are made up. I mean you would think God would have mentioned them 6,000 years ago when He wrote The Bible. duh."

Your god did not write the Bible. People wrote your Bible. People supposedly "inspired" by your god, granted, but people none the less.

"Evolutionists were not there "millions" of years ago."

Yes, yes. And forensics teams were not there when the crime was committed, yet they often can tell you almost exactly what took place based on the evidence they have.

"They recast reality to explain anything they have no ready explanation for and glom onto any theory they find that makes them feel comfortable about the world and their place in it."

I see you've not had a science class ever. That is not how science works. Not even close.

"They just make this stuff up as they go along."

That would be creationists.

"Whereas Christians such as I always have the rock of ages, Jesus, to rely upon as a constant, consistent, force in my life."

Even Jesus would tell you that you're a fucking moron for not examining the evidence and following it to its only logical conclusion.

Aaaahahahahahahaha ... Ow, my ribs. Oh, fer the love o' humanity, someone make her stop before I have a seizure from laughing too hard ...

BTW - AV1611(? Is that right? I can't look at his posts for too long without getting violent on the poor inanimate objects around me) chimed in to "help" her as she got soundly spanked by a cadre of science-savy "evil-utionists" ... With much amusement to many.

LoL's o' plenty on the whole thread!

Oh my yes, because things aren't mentioned in your bible that we know is full of lies, inaccuracies and distortions, all the hard existing evidence we have must all be made up.
