"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

I wrote something at the Wall Street Journal about evolution for a bible thumping retard.
"The Bible does not say that the earth is 6,000 years old. It does say that mankind is 6,000 - 10,000 years old."
Scientists know our ancient ape ancestors started to look like modern humans between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago. So your bible is totally wrong.
"Creatures do evolve, but there is no substantial evidence, let alone proof, that species evolved into something different."
Actually sir, if you ever bother to look things up you will notice the evidence for the evolution of new species is overwhelming. If you want you can get started here: necsi evolution Have fun with it sir. You will find out evolution is the most interesting fact of science, a lot more interesting than the magical creation fantasy. Evolution also has the advantage of being real.
