Re: The Atheist Pig
Reminds me of a Canadian creationist who described himself as being a scientist and he was adamant about it. So I started asking the questions, starting with which field of science. It turned out that he had attended a science class once, so in his mind he was a scientist. I don't remember, but I'm sure that in that class he disagreed with everything the teacher said.

" ... , why are there still monkeys?"

That question is so incredibly stupid that when I mentioned it to a creationist he denounced me very strongly for thinking that any creationist would be so stupid as to say that. Yet I have seen creationists use it at least three times in the wild, the first one being a call-in to a radio-show where Duane Gish was the guest (he tried to correct her). Plus in 2002 it made it to Answers in Genesis' list of claims that they wish creationists would stop using (another claim on that list was that men have one fewer ribs than women do).

Two other incredibly stupid creationist claims that immediately demonstrate they have no idea what they're talking about:

  1. "Evolution is just a theory!"

Why do people always forget that the world is fallen and nothing now is as it was at the Creation.

Fred Flintstone wore glasses in one episode.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo

Edited by Phat, : No reason given.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul
