    The mathematical impossibility argument amazes me the most.
    It's a statement without any real argument.
    I'm no expert on statistics & probability, but until they actually employ it, I don't have to do any homework.

    What evolutions won't admit is that "Evolution" is their religion. They believe it on faith just like other religions believe what they do on faith. Neither side can show absolute undeniable proof. So let the evolutions have their religion and the creationists have theirs.

    This is a lie. Period. It is false. The Theory of Evolution is a scientific theory. It has nothing whatsoever to do with religion. Do you know what science is? Are you in favor of it, or opposed? Do you think that all of science is religion, or only Biology?

    MiniBoglin's posts are consistently ridiculous and PW already destroyed this one but quoting famous scientists out of context is annoying as hell and I'm familiar with these off the cuff quotes:
    I haven't seen the Bill Moyers interview where the Dawkins quote comes from but I'm sure it's quote mining scumbaggery.

    The full Stebbins quote is actually:

    At the outset we should realize that the great majority of biologists accept as demonstrated the fact that organisms have evolved. To be sure, no biologist has actually seen the origin by evolution of a major group of organisms. Nevertheless, races and species have been produced by duplicating in the laboratory and garden some of the evolutionary processes known to take place in nature. The reason that major steps in evolution have never been observed is that they require millions of years to be completed. The evolutionary processes which gave rise to major groups of organisms, such as genera and families, took place in the remote past, long before there were people to observe them. Nevertheless, the facts which we know about these origins, some of which will be discussed in Chapter 7, provide very strong circumstantial evidence to indicate that the processes which brought them about were very similar to those found in modern groups of animals and plants which are evolving all around us today.​

    The full Gould quote is actually:



    The rest are more lies and quote mining and pathetic attempts to link creationism to prominent scientists.

    Actually, my religion is Native American pantheism. Mostly Cherokee, but with influence from the First Nations of the New England area. :cool:

    I don't need or use faith when I do science. ;)

    I have to agree... misquoting people is among the lowest of the low in terms of creationist tactics.

    And they accuse scientists of lies, when they are perfectly happy to fill whole posts full of them. :slap:

    truly pathetic.

    Sure you do. And you know it.


    When you don't give credit to the author, letting the reader believe you wrote it, it is plagiarism, plagiarist.

    That would make it four words. :(

    Also, i love that reason #9 that evolution is not science is simply "evolution is not science".

    The funny part about it is that the theory of evolution does not depend on a requisite mathematical probability. It comes from examining nature.

    Currently the statistical probability of evolution indicates a probability of 1.

You have no experience in the real world. considering that i have seen many things face to face in nature which you will probably never see in your life...my viewpoint here is more reliable, i was in australia last year i spent 1 week observing life in a swamp ecosystem. have you done this? listen i respect you and your beliefs.. im just saying if you actually get out into the world like i have, i have to study over 40 plant species everyday.. you will see none are evolving...too much time behind a computer for you it has cut you off from reality..." OMG, one whole week in Australia observing life in a swamp ecosystem! What do we call you now? Professor Doctor of all that science has to offer? Or maybe just "self-appointed expert"? I hope you realise that most people here actually studied for a lot more than 1 week and did it at an actual universities?
