This link is a picture of the tree of life and proves why evolution kicks the living shit out of your fairytales and is much, much cooler.

Yeah, evolution is cool. BUT is it as cool as God turning the enemies of his people into cannibals??

Took me a minute to realize the 'fuzz' on the outer edge are actually words! Interesting.

I more or less believe in evolution, but it has a lot of flaws.

If ignorance is bliss, then HeavyCola, you must be one happy atheist.

That's really good that, especially after I read Andy Dufresne's comment and I understood it a bit better... But I think the following is somewhat optimistic:

Why be so ambiguous and not explain how he is ignorant?

yeah man! And what's also cool is that on the circle our nearest neighbour is the brown rat, which i guess gives some kind of scale as to how many species there really are (based on how many they left out). It boggles the mind.


happysadfun - i'ma very happy atheist. Not sure what that has to do with this thread though.

Yeah, and why do you have to be an atheist to accept evolution?

I can't say I've read the whole thing through, because it waffles on a bit - although I liked the sex bits, though the bit where the daughters have sex with their dad, Lot, went a bit far - but anyway, I suspect that even as a Jew you'd be aware that even the Catholic Church these days accepts the idea of evolution, sooooo.... what's your point?

In the bible, it says god created everything. In 6 days. And on day 7 he took a nap.

Evolution is takes millions of years and has nothing to do with an omnipotent and all powerful being.

Indeed, the Church does accept evolution (though I'm not sure to what degree- my stance is that it quite clearly happened with other organisms, whether humans were a part of it or not depends on the existence/nonexistence of the "missing link"). Which is one of the many reasons i wholeheartedly agree with the following statement:

I'm getting really sick of both sides posting these pointless, quippy posts which do nothing but insult the other side and bring them farther APART, which i hope is not either side's intention.
