Denying evolution is like denying the laws of physics, it is a refusal to accept reality.

    So far we have one candidate in the entire GOP field that has taken the rational position of accepting the physical world for what it is.

    Evolution, as it was taught when I was in grade school, is a pile of warm excrement based upon half truth and half religion, just as the current AGW theories are.

    BTW, I am an agnostic on all three issues, and just as smart as any of you.

    If you/GPS-flex are an "agnostic" on all 3 issues, including evolution, and inject "God" into a reply to SWM, then you might want to question your "smart" Claim.
    Especially after that Incred!ble/Laughable statement about 'when monkeys stopped evolving into men', and 'where are all the cross species'.

    Not really a surprise to see your position here is even weirder/more outrageous than your climate one.

    And for the most part, people only do this with respect to global warming, and they do it not because we have millions of brilliant climatologists in this country, but because we have a lot of dimwits who listen to other dimwits who are paid to take a political stance on a scientific question. I mean really, why aren't all of these geniuses challenging the scientists on subatomic physics? Gluons? What a load of crap! Those physicists are just in it for the money!! Yeah, you REALLY expect me to believe that quantum mechanics HOAX?!

    Get real.
    In all honesty, denial propaganda is sophisticated and complex. Expensive. Pervasive.

    I would expect it to influence people well above the level of dimwits.

    Many people don't have the time, energy or ability to arrive at their own conclusions. PR designers know this and take advantage of it.

    Its a little harsh to label all skeptics dimwits. Some are simply deceived.

    I have seen nothing to convince me that God exists.
    I have seen nothing to convince me that evolution proves God doesn’t exist.
    I have seen nothing that proves AGW exists.

    If you can prove any of the above, feel free to make yourself look smart. If you know my position on climate and think it is weird, feel free to explain why.

    If you think monkeys have never evolved into men, say so. If you think monkeys are still evolving into men say so as well. Don’t pretend to be more intelligent than me with your sharp criticisms and run away without facing the reaper.

    Your position on climate is what the liberal blogs tell you it is and your position on evolution remains unknown to me.
    Bring you’re "A game" mbig, you have always been easy to handle and I even feel sorry for you sometimes.

    Only fools ignore the best information on subjects which have been neither proven nor disproven

    Humans did not evolve from monkeys. Science has proven that all life evolved from a common source.

    And even The Reaper palms his face at the morons who don't believe in Global Warming.

    Obviously this could never be the case with the AGW alarmism so prevalent today. Only conservatives would believe such propaganda.

    Give me time and a few more beers and I think I can prove all of the above.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Point #2. - There is nothing inherent in the issue of evolution which demands that one accept that god doesn't exist. You're setting up a battle where a battle need not take place.

    "prove" .. of course not
    Even My 'C' game notes this is a cheap strawman.
    No one here is trying to prove God doesn't exist-- but that evolution Does exist and there is PLENTY of evidence for this.

    I have seen nothing that proves AGW exists.
    Another Red Herring.
    There is plenty of "evidence".
    But 100% 'proof' is a strawman.

    If you can prove any of the above, feel free to make yourself look smart. If you know my position on climate and think it is weird, feel free to explain why.
    I have just shown who's even reasonably smart by Exposing your Fallacious challenge. (Never having to even push to my 'A' game)

    If you think monkeys have never evolved into men, say so. If you think monkeys are still evolving into men say so as well. Don’t pretend to be more intelligent than me with your sharp criticisms and run away without facing the reaper.
    YOU thought so!
    That's NOT the way evolution works.
    As SWM said to you.. your goofy claim showed you don't even have the Basics.

    Your position on climate is what the liberal blogs tell you it is and your position on evolution remains unknown to me.
    Bring you’re "A game" mbig, you have always been easy to handle and I even feel sorry for you sometimes.
    I HATE PC and in this very string have taken highly UNliberal/Un-PC line.
    Brilliant read GPS-flex!
    You really show NO comprehension ability or minor discernment even in this short span of posts.

    And you could have easily (with minor IQ or initiative) searched for my evolution position.

    Have you ever looked at a genealogical tree? Think of descent from a common ancestor in the same way. There are branches which start and dead end, there are branches which grow and branch again. "Monkey" and Man come from an earlier ancestor - just like you and your 20th cousin, 18 times removed, both come from a common ancestor. That's how both George Bush and Barack Obama can trace their ancestors to a common ancestor.
