    The 2 fundimental laws of Biology are:

    1. All of the phenomena of biology, the entities and the processes, are ultimately obedient to the laws of physics and chemistry. Not immediately reducible to them, but ultimately consistent and in consilience with them, by a cause and effect explanation.

    2. All biological phenomena, these entities and processes that define life itself, have arisen by evolution through natural selection.

    Basically this means that there is nothing magical about you, no supernatural explanation for how we came into existence or how the earth came to be a planet that teams with an amazing diversity of life.



    Unfortunately, no one is shocked at the notion that in the 21st century there are still a decent number of people out there that are so ignorant of the life sciences to honestly believe that creation is an alternative theory to evolution.
    Which goes back to what I said, this thread is about nothing more/different/novel than bashing religious beliefs.

    Look, according to Genesis, God created Adam from dust and Eve from Adam's rib. You'd find anyone who believed that stupid/ignorant, right? I really just want you to say what you want to say. Just let the words fall out. Honestly, I want to see you be brave.

    All this chatter and the evolution v creation thing had nothing whatsoever to do with this idiot's suspension. He shamed an obviously more popular coworker on a public forum. He didn't need to, but he couldn't keep his lip buttoned, he had to let the entire world know he was right and crush his opponent beneath his heel. Gotta love the hyper educated moron.

    Science does not bash religion. Science is completely agnostic when it comes to religion. If you believe that you were created by God then that is a belief based in faith, not science. As such, it is a question for religion, not science. Science only deals with the natural world.

    That all said, personally I look at creationists like I do my Vizsla. Our Vizsla is quite smart. He is about as clever of a dog that you will ever find. However, just like creationists, he doesn't understand science very well at all.

    Don't you get it? After the water's receded from the Great Flood, Noah's Ark landed on Mount Ararat. At that point, kangaroos hopped all the way across Asia before making the swim to Australia. God then created 11 species a day, and hundreds of species of plants an hour, every day, from then until the advent of Darwin's satanic notion that life actually evolved through natural selection.

    And they get mad when we ridicule them. You know, when adults still believe in the tooth fairy they tend to be ridiculed as well. Its not just atheists that ridicule creationists either, its probably half the world's Christians that think they are ignorant as well.

    It's not bashing religion to point out scientific facts. Those scientific facts do not require God to exist, but they also do not contradict his existence.

    If you are bothered by this anyway, well, that's your problem. But hey, if you want to validate your victim complex by lashing out at anyone who doesn't like your beliefs, that's your prerogative. Lots of people don't like what I believe, but I really don't care what they think. You also don't see me going around and claiming "THIS WHOLE THREAD JUST EXISTS TO BASH LIBERALS" every single time some random-ass conservative bashes liberals.

    Of course they get mad, they can't have their beliefs, however illogical and non rational be questioned, because they need the security of their belief. If their beliefs are disproved, they think they can't function. But, guess what? It is easy to accept scientific fact and live in the real world, it gives you a clear mind!
