Who are YOU to say I'm wrong about ANYTHING? Once again, evolution leads to STUPIDITY, because if your brain is just a bunch of evolved chemicals, then nothing has any meaning in the end.

Just because you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about does not mean you're right.

No, it's called mathematics. Mathematics is not a philosophy. You fail.

Chemicals don't evolve. The periodic table, while new elements could be added, they are not evolutions of old chemicals. Moving on...

/Oooh... I lost an electron, I evolved!

Mathematics is not dictated by how life evolved, dumbass. If anything, it's the other way around.

Reality Check

I always thought it was electrons that stored data... silly me.

You might be able to convince a factual relativist with that argument, but nobody with a brain, evolved or not.

4/18/2010 11:10:08 AM



Yep. This definitely falls under the category of "What is this I don't even". It might even be "WHARRGARBLE!" worthy.

None of that made sense. Leave you alone? Sure when you and your ilk do the same

John

Who are YOU to say I'm wrong about ANYTHING?

Wasn't that the extreme left's argument back in the seventies? See postmodernism and deconstructionism.

Are you trying to tell us that 2+2=5?

4/18/2010 11:41:56 AM



Uh, mathematics are not subjective.

4/18/2010 11:47:01 AM



Okay, let's test out your little theory, shall we?

You put two apples on the table. Then I'll put....Oh, never mind.

Education is what teaches you math, not your chemicals.
Big education failure, Bubba.

4/18/2010 12:01:28 PM

aaa

You are a dumbass. Get yourself an education before i get all philosophical on your ass.

4/18/2010 12:06:18 PM

Okay John, I'll explain this to you like you're a 4 year old (I hope it still doesn't go over you head).

If I have 2 apples and I'm given 2 more apples (presumably by someone other than you, as you're probably a selfish git who'd keep your apples for yourself) then I would have 4 apples. 1,2,3,4. I could physically count the apples. I would not have 5 apples, I would not have 3 apples. Mathematics is not open to interpretation.

If you thought 2+2=5 then you're an imbecile without a basic grasp of simple concepts.

TGRwulf

LOL, are you for real? Evolution does not change the rule of mathmatics.

As numbers are a label system invented by humans, that is impossible.

Even with colors, this doesn't quite work. We can use equipment to verify the differences.

So, you fail at science & I'm not sure where you get this "mind your own business" shit. Do people often try to educate you? That's probably it.

Let's suppose I say 2+2=5

That's creationism in a nutshell.

you say 2+2=4

Yup, that's what the sane people in the world accept.

Are you right, or am I right? You'll say that you're right, right?

In this case, yes.

But if evolution is true, suppose it's just that the chemicals that evolved into MY brain, did not evolve the same as the chemicals that evolved into YOUR brain, and we just understand the world differently. Who are YOU to say I'm wrong about ANYTHING?

Simple: we can validate it with other people and are able to apply what we know to do useful work. If NASA thought 2+2 was 5 they'd never be able to make a functional space shuttle.

Once again, evolution leads to STUPIDITY

Actually, in our case intelligence is a favored trait.

because if your brain is just a bunch of evolved chemicals, then nothing has any meaning in the end

And music is just a bunch of sound waves, but that doesn't mean it has no meaning. How does knowing how something is constructed take away its meaning?

It's just the way your chemicals happen to perceive things, and mine perceive things differently

Yeah, and natural selection prefers those that more accurately perceive reality. For example, an animal that can identify a predator is more successful than one that can't. Granted, our senses aren't perfect but they are reliable enough and when they're not, there's always reason and testing.

SO MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS and leave me alone!

How about taking your own damn advise?

Whoa dude...so like everything we know is based on like the chemicals in our brain...and like if the chemicals are different then....


Seriously dude, lay off the weed.

"Let's suppose I say 2+2=5 and you say 2+2=4. Are you right, or am I right? You'll say that you're right, right?"

Of course.

"But if evolution is true, suppose it's just that the chemicals that evolved into MY brain, did not evolve the same as the chemicals that evolved into YOUR brain, and we just understand the world differently."

Chemicals don't evolve, nimrod.

"Who are YOU to say I'm wrong about ANYTHING?"

Me? I'm nobody. Reality on the other hand may have a thing or three to say about it.

"Once again, evolution leads to STUPIDITY, because if your brain is just a bunch of evolved chemicals, then nothing has any meaning in the end."

Evolution leads to you being able to assault me with your ignorance without even being present.

Your brain is not a "bunch of evolved chemicals" either unless you really want to oversimplify things.

And no, nothing has any meaning in the end. I find it quite a bizarre idea that you think anything actually does.

"It's just the way your chemicals happen to perceive things, and mine perceive things differently."

Then you would appear to be chemically imbalanced. Perhaps you should see a neurologist.

"SO MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS and leave me alone!"

With great pleasure.

I'M WRONG AND I LIKE BEING WRONG AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT ME BEING WRONG SO I'M RIGHT AND I WIN.

END OF DEBATE!!!

GO HOME!!!
