If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

The stupid, it burns.

"If there's a paper in one of the big journals that discusses more evidence for evolution, there is a creationist hack somewhere who'll quickly write it up and lie about it." -- PZ Myers

A conversation with a fucking idiot at his anti-science bible website.

  1. "microbe-to-man evolution myth"

    You're a macroevolution denier. I wonder how you explain ERVs and Human Chromosome Two.

    I also wonder why you think you know more about biology than all the world's biologists.

    Please read these three posts. Please read to understand and to learn something instead of trying to figure out how to deny it.

    Human chromosome 2 and chimpanzee chromosomes 2p & 2q

    Endogenous Retroviruses make Jeebus cry.

    Why do many whales have legs and pelvic bones separated from the rest of their skeleton? These vestigial organs are powerful evidence for evolution.

    Many people think science deniers like yourself are incurable. I think they're right, but I'm willing to give you a chance to prove them wrong.

  2. @Human Ape - all of your talking points have been soundly refuted time and time again by real scientists doing real science... which is happily performed without invoking your evolution myth.

    The above links are from biologists who accept the surface evidence in nature and refuse the fairytale of evolution. You have nothing... provide something unique which has not been refuted please. And by the way there are many other refutations from other scientists I could quote.

  3. OK then what evidence do you have for magical creation out of nothing? Can you describe your fairy's magic wand? Its magic words?

    Your magical creation websites are not science websites. They are Bible websites. Any real biologist would think you're pathetic.

  4. Jerry Coyne is a famous biologist at the University of Chicago which is one of the top ten universities on this planet. They don't hire liars to work there. He wrote this paragraph. Maybe you should visit a museum and see it with your own eyes. By the way, still waiting for your description of your fairy's magic wand. You will notice real scientists don't invoke supernatural magic to explain the natural world. Perhaps they don't do that because they're not insane.

    Whales are treasure troves of vestigial organs. Many living species have a vestigial pelvis and leg bones, testifying, as we saw in the last chapter, to their descent from four-legged terrestrial ancestors. If you look at a complete whale skeleton in a museum, you'll often see the tiny hindlimb and pelvic bones hanging from the rest of the skeleton, suspended by wires. That's because in living whales they're not connected to the rest of the bones, but are simply imbedded in tissue. They once were part of the skeleton, but became disconnected and tiny when they were no longer needed. The list of vestigial organs in animals could fill a large catalog. Darwin himself, an avid beetle collector in his youth, pointed out that some flightless beetles still have vestiges of wings beneath their fused wing covers (the beetle's "shell").
