How many of them were named, Jesus?

I'm sure in your mind that was a clever riposte!

I read as much of the rest of that thread as I could stand. I had to stop when my retinas began to feel as if they might bleed.

As the plural of El (god) is Elohim, may I speculate the plural of Jesus could be Yeshuhim?

AV is still in action, being a bonehead to end all boneheads.

How many of them were named, Jesus?
Among scientists who support evolution there were about 1,150 named "Steve" - I don't think they ever counted those named "Jesus". There may be some in Spanish-speaking countries. "Jesus" wasn't Jesus of Nazareth's real name. It's an modern translation of a Latin translation of a Greek translation of the Hebrew name "Jeshua" or "Jehoshu". I'm sure there are evolutionary biologists named "Joshua", which is yet another translation of the same name.

Bad grammar aside, I decided to look into this.
After searching the Web of Science, I found sixteen peer-reviewed articles that at least mentioned evolution and had at least one author with the surname Jesus (apparently, there is a Portuguese biologist named Jose Jesus). Unfortunately, the Web of Science does not allow searches by author's first name, but I can only imagine that Jesus is far more common as a first name than a last name, so the number would presumably increase substantially.
Why did he want to know?

And did Jesus tell you how many were named? i presume all of them but you never know.

This AV1611vet-guy is really fucking retarded! This is nowhere near the dumbest thing he has said... :-(

I don't know. Probably a few.

@Brett - I loved the one where he claimed the water from Noah's Flood was sent to Neptune.

One of them might be called Jesus, my supervisor is called Jesus. There are a lot of mexicans called Jesus. Was Jesus Christ mexican? I think that would be kind of awesomely hilarious.

That's it. He must be trolling. Absolutely nobody, not even a creationist, could possibly be that stupid. That is my opinion, and I am sticking to it.
3/18/2011 10:04:47 AM
Well, Jesus? The class is waiting for your answer!
3/18/2011 10:05:16 AM
Statistically speaking, there have to be at least one.
But that's not what you mean, is it AV1611vet?

How many papers, in general, are given names?(WTF)?

"How many of them were named, Jesus?"
According to the Law of Probability, considering
number of peer-reviewed papers on the subject,
there has to be quite a few experts/academics/scholars/professors of Biology in Central/South America (or at least of Latino descent, in universities/facilities in other parts of the world) who are/were named Jesus.
I love the smell of destroyed arguments in the morning. Smells like... victory.
Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen): 'Can you fly this plane, and land it?'
Ted Striker (Robert Hays): 'Surely, you can't be serious?'
Dr. Rumack: 'I am serious...
and don't call me Shirley.

There aren't any books in the Bible called Jesus either you idiot.

When Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and Agatha Heterodyne start peer-reviewing science papers, I suppose Jesus of Nazareth can join in. Though perhaps only as the coffee-bitch of the team; The rest of them are at least scientifically qualified fictional characters.

Thank you for telling us the backdoor to shut you idiots up: we just have to start adding Jesus to the author list.
3/18/2011 11:43:17 AM
Where did Jesus get his Ph.D. from?

Fundies Make Me Sick
That statement makes no sense. Learn logic, dumbass. And besides, Jesus doesn't disprove evolution.
3/18/2011 12:18:47 PM
I don't know. How many people named Jesus went into biology? >.>
3/18/2011 12:33:46 PM
I give up. How many?
3/18/2011 12:40:03 PM
Just the type of retarded comment I've come to expect from AV1611VET. The man's mind is wrapped in a King James Version of the Bible and is impervious to reality.
