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!"
  2. "But THEY'RE STILL MOTHS!!!"

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

Re: This One Is For Coyote
Over the decades, I've casually collected a number of quotes. Here is one such from one John Rogers (as per my father-in-law: "En su propria casa se conoce" -- "In his own home they know who he is"):

quote:
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

So why does Job (or was it "Joe"?) have a New York Jewish accent?
