Evolution Denial


10/25/15

It takes a big, big man to admit when he's been wrong.

As you might guess from that intro ... I screwed up

Soren Kierkegaard wrote:

There are two ways to be fooled.
One is to believe what isn't true;
the other is to refuse to believe what is true.


Where does that leave evolution deniers?

They nailed foolishness ...

from both sides

Evolution-deniers jumped on the interpretation by some ENCODE scientists
that most of our DNA was functional.
But as always, their joy was short-lived
when other scientists pointed out that their hope was based
on a vague interpretation of the word "functional."

Now scientists clarify DNA functionality ...

and it didn't go too well for the evolution-deniers

Attention Young Earth Creationists ...

Scientists discover that they have been wrong about the age of the Earth!

It's actually 60 million years older than previously thought

Function found, for some of the human genome's "dark matter"

Creationists will go nuts.

They have been fighting the existence of junk DNA for many decades.
If the non-coding sections of the human genome do have other functions,
this discovery will help free them from the burden of trying to explain
why their God would create beings with useless genomic material.

While this will add nothing to their evidence for the existence of their God,
even relief from one powerful argument will allow them some breathing room,
and force their adversaries to concentrate on other arguments.

However, if the entire genome does have purpose,
then this discovery also brings up some other familiar and difficult questions,
like "Why did your God use this genomic material to create diseases?"
and "If this is part of God's curse,
why didn't He remove it after Jesus paid for our sins?"

But the crucial part of the article is
"However, they are difficult to detect
and no one knows exactly what they all are doing or why they are there.
Now at least we know that they are real, and not just 'noise' or 'junk.'
Of course, the next step is to answer the question,
'what, in fact, do they do?'  
"

So function has NOT yet been found.
Do you think Creationists will notice that part?

Creationists try to convince people that T-Rexes were gentle plant-eaters.
They do this because they can't have any killing before "The Fall."
As always, the scientific facts NEVER fall ... on their side of the debate.

Proof that T-Rex was a hunter not a scavenger

The Universe has been fine-tuned for life by God?



In order for carbon-based life to exist,
a star must produce a sufficient amount of carbon and oxygen.
This can only happen inside of giant red stars.
If quark parameters varied more than 2-3% from what they are,
the amount of carbon and oxygen produced would be too low.

There is no evidence that the weight of quarks was assigned to them
by an invisible ghost with magical powers.
We only know that this is what they weigh, and as a result,
carbon-based life could have arisen in such star systems.

According to the Bible:

"In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth."

According to Stanley Miller (1930-2007):

"In the beginning were simple chemicals;
these chemicals combined into chains of amino acids
which eventually evolved into lifeforms.
"

Okay ... I'm going to have to go with Miller on this one.

Creationist excitement hits fever pitch as researchers discover evidence
that the age of the Grand Canyon may be drastically different than previously thought.

Age of the Grand Canyon

I know. That was pretty mean.
But the schadenfreude I derived from watching
the further demolition of Creationist hope was almost ...
sexual

Creationists demand, "Show us evolution happening right now."

Note to Creationists: "Be careful what you ask for - you just may get it."

Creationists can't stand the fact that humans evolved from monkey-like creatures.
After reading this story, one could argue that ... we still are monkey-like creatures.

Now I see why it is so important to Creationists that evolution be false ...

Evolution Denial Abroad

Canada

In Canada, politicians get ridiculed for rejecting evolution (as they should be)

Compare this to America where anti-evolution lunacy
is a requirement for membership in the Republican party.
(that would be the party that is currently in control
of all branches of the American government)

Kenyan evangelicals demand museum remove Turkana Boy fossils



If their God is real ... why do they have to hide evidence to the contrary?

It doesn't sound like Kenya is all that big on "Teaching the Controversy."

South Korea

I understand that you South Koreans are grateful to America
for defending you against that family of thugs who run North Korea;
but importing our religion isn't the way to show gratitude.

Evolution Meets Christianity: Christianity Wins

Christianity is like a spreading cancer
that will suck your money and dilute your education,
as this story just demonstrated.
Even Scientology would be less destructive.
Plus you would be entitled to free visits from Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
Compare that to what the Christians are offering you ...
Kirk Cameron and Pat Robertson

Not to mention, that with Scientology,
you don't have to worry about that whole "Eternal Torture" thing.
Seriously Korean dudes, if you are going to screw up your country ...

at least pick the lesser of two evils

A talking elephant ... big deal.

That elephant isn't anything special.
I'll be impressed when he can speak as well as Balaam's donkey did in the Bible:

"What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?"
(Numbers 22:28)
"Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden
ever since I was thine unto this day?
Was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.
"
(Numbers 22:30)

And don't forget about the talking snake.

Animals don't feel pain?

(30:43)



If you don't believe animals feel pain,
start twisting your dog's paw and see what happens.
It's hard to imagine how anyone could be that stupid.
But you have to remember - we are talking about William Lane Craig here;
a man who regularly takes the meaning of the word "stupid" to a whole new level.

This desperate attempt shows how wacky and insane, some Christians are willing to be
in order to provide excuses for their invisible monster.

Rational people can only shake their heads in disbelief.

This is what happens when you jump the gun
because you desperately want your fantasies to be true

Vox Day and Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos

Remember Teddy Roosevelt's famous admonition?
"Speak softly, but carry a big stick"

Apparently, Vox Day got that one backwards, too:
"Brag incessantly, then back down when confronted"

Christian Conservatives look at scientific discoveries
in the opposite way that rational people look at them:
they see every achievement as proof that science had been "wrong."

Well technically speaking, science is always wrong ...
but not in the same way that the Ghost Worshipers mean wrong.

When science makes a discovery, it's like adding another digit to pi:
sure the previous number for pi was wrong, and so is the new number;
it will always be wrong, but ...

Every discovery science makes, like every digit that gets added to pi,
brings humanity closer to the truth.
