Evidence? Who needs evidence to believe in evolution!

Darwin, nit wit, absolutely believed the fossils were necessary for his theory to be valid and bemoaned the lack of them to back his theory.

Evolutionists can't even agree WHY the missing links are missing by the millions and why the first of all animal phylum appear fully-formed the first time they appear in the Cambrian. That has how half-baked, cult-like the theory is.

Evolution is intellectually indefensible. It takes a spiritual blindness to accept it.

If God created species in their present form, it is proof there is a God one is accountable. Avoiding that reality is the sole reason to hang onto the theory.

Even without the fossil record, there would still be plenty of lines of evidence for Darwinian evolution, such as the patterns of similarity on the genotypical as well as the phaenotypical level,-

The denial of transitional fossils reveals either an astounding inability or a complete unwillingness to connect dots no matter how obvious the line is.

Just to cover that last point. If we could somehow prove that all of the species were created in their present form ex nihilo (which we can't…because they weren't), it would not prove that we were accountable to who or whatever created them. Even if we call that being "God", you still have to show that we are accountable to "God" or that "God" cares about our actions. Personally, I would expect a being capable of that kind of power to barely notice, let alone care, about the actions of us individual mortals.

The whole argument is nonsense, even if you do happen to believe in a God or gods, but that last line stuck out to me.

First of, what Pharaoh and thatotherguy said. Secondly: Your own intellectual dishonesty makes your point about how "indefensible" evolution is as a theory moot. You are regurgitating the same old strawman arguments creationists have used for decades, with less and less success fortunately, cite nothing to back your statements up and then you dare tell us that we scientists are all part of a giant conspiracy against god and have no evidence for our views? You are an anti-intellectual imbecile. Come back once you actually know what you are talking about. Oh and by the way, say what you want about the catholic church, but it was at least able to see how impossible it is to deny evolution as a natural mechanism.

We need evidence, as it's not a belief but a scientific fact.

He had the fossils, and now we have even more of them. Most of his hypotheses have been confirmed.

Yes, we do. Fossilization is very rare and most life-forms that have existed have probably NOT been fossilized. Do you think you'll be fossilized?

The half-baked cult-like ones are the science-deniers, dolt.

It's the existence of gods that take spiritual blindness, and is intellectually indefensible.

Adhering to the actual reality is the main reason to adhere to actual science, like the TOE.

That's a shining example of circular reasoning you've got there, dearie.

If God created species in their present form, it is proof there is a God


And if Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster had a baby, it's proof that Bigfoot exists. But it's a pretty big "if."

Who needs evidence to believe in evolution? Uh you realize that pretty much everyone who accepts evolution will raise their hands.

We have the evidence. We win.

Did someone really tell you that? And you actually BELIEVED it? Hahahahah, what an imbecile! Darwin knew there should be more in-between-species fossils ....and just as he predicted all those years ago, we now have found them, millions and millions of them. Since it takes special lucky conditions for fossils to form and be found in situ, millions of fossils imply billions of creatures.

It's pretty hard to fossilize a soft-bodied creature, so we mostly find ones that have already evolved a hard shell or an internal skeleton. Nobody but the dumbest of creationists thinks we will find something with one end fish and the other end monkey.

First off, every fossil is transitional, nit wit.

Secondly, even if we didn't have one single fossil the validity of evolutionary theory would still be undeniable through other disciplines. The problem is that no matter what evidence you would be presented you would still no accept it. That is intellectually dishonest. If you showed me actual evidence that a supernatural being created species in their present for and it was compelling and withstood the scrutiny of peer review I would abandon my current beliefs in a second. Why cling to a theory that is demonstrably false.

What is sad is that the truth of evolution is a much more elegant, and yes, beautiful, explanation of what we see than "God blew into the dirt".

One last thing, you are a fucking moron.

Do you suppose we should tell him that phylum is five levels above species and that the Cretaceous lasted for 80 million years?

Evidence? Who needs evidence to believe in evolution!


Oh, I dunno...:



...you tell me.

The Church of England would like to know why they've buried & memorialised Charles Darwin - and one of only five non-royalty people - in their central place of worship, Westminster Abbey.

Can't be anything to do with the fact that they accept Evolution as scientific fact - and can reconcile such with their Christian beliefs - can it? Naaaah! [/Doug Piranha-levels of sarcasm]

"Evidence? Who needs evidence to believe in evolution! "


People trying to find cures for diseases and conditions
People working the medical field



Seriously organisms adapt to their environment. To doubt this is to be stupid. And that adaptation is evolution

The links are missing by the millions because EVERY GENERATION OF LIFE ON EARTH IS A LINK. The conditions for forming fossils are pretty rare, and we can only find the fossils that are close to the Earth's land surface, so only a tiny fraction of the creatures that have lived on Earth are ever discovered.

No,what you can`t get is that just because some fucker with inflated power level demands absolute obedience does not mean he has a right to it nor that we are accountable in any way or form to his wishes. If your jahve wants to have a species of obedient golems, he can create them for himself with no sentience, now can he not?

We are accountable only to the greater universe, us and other sentient animals so far.
