    You've won a Nobel Prize?

    You want evidence that evolution is bogus? OK here's a start. About 90 billion neurons in the human brain, all hooked up in a specific intricate pattern. There are about 45 miles of nerves in the human body, all wired up in a specific intricate pattern.

    I could go on. Complexity, at the end of the day, is why I don't believe in evolution.

    If you knew what evolution was that complexity wouldn't be a problem for you. But of course that would require Wikipedia and ten minutes of your time, and well, ****, who has time for that?

And did so very, very wrong. But we have a group of people unable to see that their assumptions aren't based on divine truth, but rather a flawed human perception. It doesn't occur to them that there's a possibility of their belief being wrong.

    Thing is, your dad is wrong too. And isn't curious. It is possible to know the age of the earth within a pretty decent margin. Assuming there is no answer to a question is just as bad as never asking the question in the first place. "We can't know the answer to this" is an inherently blind notion.

    Yes, public school is a mess in some places, but at least it's not teaching people information that is provably false. And really, the problem is mostly public schools in non-wealthy neighborhoods. The upper middle class suburb high schools do a lot better. Poor performance of schools doesn't make the influence of religious fundamentalists any less damaging,

    Actually "we can't know the answer to this" is quite a bit smarter than presuming to know and then being proved wrong when new data come in.

    I've won, like, lots of Nobel Prizes.

    You arguing against evolution would be like me debating the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and not being able to find the Middle East on a map. Seriously, that is precisely how embarrassing your position in this thread is.

    Are you absolutely certain you have that many?

    Man, what is with all the personal attacks on this thread? Are you guys really this afraid to actually debate the issue of evolution?

    Fair warning: I've been reporting each personal attack to the mods. You're welcome for letting you know.

    I'm sorry if you feel this is a personal attack, but that debate question is one of the funniest things I have read this month. How does anyone debate another person who says, "I believe" and then gives nothing . . . and I mean absolutely nothing, to back up the belief. Too funny.

    Why could that not have evolved? Is it just an assumption you're making that the aggregated "complexity" couldn't be naturally derived?
