    Way to try to change what I said into something you could use to call me stupid, and I should file a complaint about it.

    Well brainiac if you could comprehend the written word you would know I never said I believe that what I said was:
    "Evolution is a myth to many people who think that God made everything as it is, and it will never change. They never consider that God may have included evolution in his plans."

    The paper you cited (the toast of wingnut websites) has been roundly panned by the scientific community. It's author has falsely claimed to have discovered the silver bullet that kills global warming time and time again.
    You are part of the group that promotes the HOAX I see. You are just plain wrong and want to continue the HOAX.

    Google: New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming and you will find 10 pages or more of places you can read about the NASA report. The only people who panned it have a vested interest.

    Hell Al Gores movie can't be shown in schools in the UK with the students being told it contains false and missleading information.

    So how else to explain the diversity of life on Earth? Why all of the coincidences, such as the fact that EVERY LIVING CELL:

    1. Uses the same chemicals to store and process information
    2. Performs the same anaerobic metabolic processes as a part of respiration (glycolysis)
    3. Use the same energy currency molecule (ATP)

    While your at it, please explain:

    1. The current biogeographical distributions of species on Earth (e.g. marsupials in Australia, Lemurs in Madagascar, etc.)
    2. The similarities of comparative embryology shown among all members of the animal kingdom (ex. parazoa)
    3. Why only the levarotary stereoisomers of amino acids are used by all life, with the exception of prokaryotic peptidoglycan.
    4. The distribution of cell membrane lipids among the three domains of life, including the ester linkages of the archaeans.

    remember, to be valid, your explaination has to be more parsimonious that evolution by natural selection from a common ancestor.

    People, like Mr. Perry, that don't "believe" in science, really just don't know science.

    I have already contributed to his campaign once, and this makes me want to send the guy another check. However, since reason and sanity are not virtues Republican Primary Voters want in a candidate this year, I don't think this will help him out any.
    So you're a one issue voter, and evolution is it. Shows how very little you care about our country.

    No, I don't think that is it. But how do you trust some one to make reasonable decisions when they discount science.

That's the equivalent of being a little bit pregnant..
    Race is a social construct. You see, there are certainly distinct ethnographic groups within the human population, but there are so many of them as to be useless. For example, there are hundreds of distinct genetic populations of humans (as indicated both by allele frequencies and unique microsatellite DNA sequences) in Africa alone. E.g. "North Cameroonian" is a distinct genetic population.

    So you see, the modern racist has a problem presented by evolutionary biology: there is no real genetic basis for "race" other than a few very visible, yet rather biologically inconsequential gene variants, such as those for MC1R, which is largely responsible for melanin production.

    The genetics are clear: either there are hundreds of races, or there is just one. The rest is sociology, something I can't add to a discussion about. To categorize into the groups black, white, Asian, etc... is a vast oversimplification of the matter - nevermind the fact that just a few generations of interbreeding can make a new population entirely!

    Obviously, you have confused evolution theory with abiogenesis theory. Don't you feel silly?

    The more I read about Huntsman, the more I like him. Unfortunately, he won't appeal the the "base" because far too many people in "the base" are under the asinine belief that one has to denounce science in order to be conservative.

    "Now I, for one, think evolution is a bunch of *bullcrap*! But I've been told I have to teach it to you anyway. It was thought up by Charles Darwin and it goes something like this... "


    1012_teaching_evolution.jpg

    in the beginning, we were all fish. Okay? Swimming around in the water. And then one day a couple of fish had a retard baby, and the retard baby was different, so it got to live. So Retard Fish goes on to make more retard babies, and then one day, a retard baby fish crawled out of the ocean with its... mutant fish hands... and it had butt sex with a squirrel or something and made this. Retard frog-sqirrel, and then *that* had a retard baby which was a... monkey-fish-frog... And then this monkey-fish-frog had butt sex with that monkey, and that monkey had a mutant retard baby that screwed another monkey... and that made you!

    So there you go! You're the retarded offspring of five monkeys having butt sex with a fish-squirrel! Congratulations!"

    Everything. When people feel that they can choose to "believe" things that are demonstrably untrue, that threatens the entire basis of rational governance. I may not "believe" in gravity, but s*** still falls, just like even if you don't "believe" in evolution, the flu virus (and every living organism) is still doing it.

    It's about understanding science, and what science can tell us. It's about rationality, and the triumph of reason and objectivity over a demon-haunted world.
