cool cats

A "creation science" textbook maybe.

Try reading something based on real science sometime, something that's peer reiewed perhaps.

"All lies and jest.
Still a man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest."

The fundie theme song.

Big bang: Astrophysics.
Natural selection: Biology.

The only connection between the two is that life as we know it needs a planet to live on.

Are you sure you know how to read? Are you trying to tell me that sheep can read now? Are you making an inadvertent point for evolution?

Change. You say that like it's a bad thing...

Sheep of El is:

(A) referring to creationist propaganda 'textbooks.'
(B) misunderstanding what he has read in science books, probably due to poor reading comprehension.
(C) lying.

For extra credit: What will Sheep of El's response be to the fact that most of our technological advances - including his computer - have come through changes in scientific knowledge?

(D) All of the above. He's read and absorbed AiG, misunderstood every iota of science that contracdicts his misconceptions, and is pretending that's not how it happened.

I challenge 'Sheep of El' to provide the title of just one 'textbook' that claims 'the big bang was the starting cause of natural selection'.

Good science and bad science.

"That's technology, not science. They have nothing to do with each other!"

Sheep of El has the average fundie understanding of anything scientific. Zero.
If it isn't in the Bible, it doesn't exist. Never mind the fact that virtually everything that makes our lives more comfortable and safe has been achieved because of scientific development of the past several centuries.
Face facts, fundie idiots, if we relied exclusively on your holy books for our development we wouldn't be having these discussions, at least not electronically over the Internet.
Science changes over time because new discoveries are made all the time.
Religion is the same old bullshit now as it was two thousand years ago.

Strictly speaking, the Big Bang was the starting cause of everying; humanity, natural selection and religion alike.

anti-nonsense

maybe you should read a real textbook next time and not a creationist book of bullshit?

No real text book has ever made such a claim.

Lying for Jesus!

By "textbook" you mean a Jack Chick tract don't you?

I guess it's too late to get a refund on those textbooks?

Hey, look. Baaaaaaahhd science.

*is bricked*

Well then, you should have found some better textbooks. The Big Bang has nothing to do with the ToE, other than the fact that most of the best and brightest among us seem to accept both theories.

""The textbooks I studied from proclaimed that the big bang was the starting cause of natural selection.

Really? Can you remember the name of one of those textbooks?

Was the name of one of them "101 Facts I Yanked Out of My Ass" by any chance?

You're either a liar or a complete idiot.

Or perhaps both. Who knows.

And The Sheep is probably still wondering why he got a D in that course ...

Yawn! Gee another fundie flunking science because they didn't read the textbook and then lied on the test.

9/10/2007 5:23:20 PM

The big bang was the start/beginning of the universe, twit.

I think you read a fundie misinformation book, because no scientific book equates the big bang with the start of natural selection, as a circuitous argument to gainsay natural selection.
