Who would have guessed that all the evil in the world stems from the theory of evolution?

That`s an exaggeration...ancient Greek philosophers argued about it but didn`t prove heliocentrism, which was a minority view. Most of them thought that the Earth was the centre of the solar system, which was not a silly idea given the observations that can be made by eye, and most people in the world in those days weren`t familiar with the work of Greek philosophers.

Lets not be so hard on religion. Sometimes it takes time for facts of reality to sink in on the ignorant and the slow. After all they just recently accepted the fact the Sun is the center of our Planetary system and the Earth is not the center of the Universe while the rest of the world knew this from the time of Eratosthenes

[i]Most mainstream Christian denomonations accept evolution as a fact but suggest that it is the mechanism chosen by god to populate his creation. Which, given that god could by definition have chosen any method including just poofing creatures into being and having them flourish on a diet of moonbeams,implies an utterly callous deity.[/i]

Yeah, but he recently realised that problem. Get ready for the discovery of the moonbeam toad in the next few years.

I find TRUTH to be a strange name for a group that promotes lies. Even the Catholic Church has acknowledged the validity of evolution. Jesus would not be pleased with this group.

Well, not really. An organism`s size is restricted only by its environment, and the square-cube law which posits a hypothetical "maximum" size somewhere between 100,000-1,000,000 kg. Any animal this size or above would be literally crushed by its own weight. The most important factor in growth size for any organism is oxygen. Back in Jurassic periods the Earth had a very high oxygen content, which is why you see very large insects and other animals in the fossil record.

"Maybe the tailbone isn`t a throwback to ancestors. Maybe it`s something we are evolving into. I think a tail would be cool. Wag when you`re happy ... swat flies ... very useful."

Ever been to a furry convention? :)

Looks to me as if they are admitting Evolution exists, just attributing to it all sorts of immoral idiocy.

Mutations are the rule, not the abnormality. Consider that extremophiles live in 120C at the base of volcanic sea vents.

5Cats: The implied meaning of the word "mutation" is different in biology and in commmon usage. In common usage, it implies major physiological changes, almost always with adverse effects. In biology, it doesn`t. It`s a change, even a tiny change in one gene that has little or no physiological effect. So in the context of biology the natural variations you refer to are mutations.

Surely this is an atheist trolling christians? Christians aren`t this stupid.


...

No wait, they take all their instructions from an omnipotent imaginary friend`s voices in their head. They really are that stupid.

You need to be more specific as to whom you`re "huhing" at @Gerry1.

@Verenthi: It`s not mutations, but rather normal variation mixed with natural selection that is the driving force behind evolution.

Not that mutations don`t happen: they do!

But far more common is: a tiny difference, multiplied by a small percentage of advantage OR disadvantage, carried out over many generations.

Those finches (Darwin`s) didn`t just `hatch one year` with longer or shorter beaks: it took many decades of adaptation, correct?

@Gerry1of1, about that tailbone thing
In the absence of environmental stress, useless or inefficient body parts won`t simply disappear or correct themselves.

The recurrent laryngeal nerve (warning: video of a dissection) is another good example of such inefficiency.
Since its length and path play no role in survival, at least none that I`m aware of, no other design that could arise from a mutation will get selected over the current one.

Which brings me to another point: evolution isn`t some intelligent force with a specific objective in mind. Mutations happen by chance, non-fatal mistakes when replicating DNA segments or changes in the expression of genes already present.

@LordJim: It`s true: Everything dies (except, presumably, God). So evolution takes that into account: death IS going to happen, it`s survival of the SPECIES (DNA) which counts!

There`s a nifty theory that dinosaur-age creatures lived VERY long lives! This would make them far less able to adapt quickly, which helps explain extinctions... and how they got so gosh-darn BIG...

OK: Evolution Theory says that non-essential parts are discarded, right? So why do we still have tailbones? And appendixes and stuff?
Answer: because they are in the process of being "discarded" = duh! It doesn`t happen overnight. And perhaps those two things DO have some benefits we just don`t know about. Or DID until very recently...

Yes, humans, apes, chimps and such all trace back to a common ancestor VERY long ago which probably looked like a lemur (and for sure had a tail)...

...or @Gerry1 could be correct and we are now evolving a tail... :-)

madduck,
Humans didn`t split from apes. Humans and apes split from a common ancestor. (Shhhh! Don`t tell the Creationists!) Presumably, the common ancestor had a tail.

Evolution is actually horrible. it is wasteful, ugly and depends on most organisms dying in pain, with 99% of all known species being now extinct. It really is ghastly. Prior to the development of pain-killing drugs the best end any organism could hope for was a sudden accident or an efficient and quick predator. That way the agony might only last a few seconds. Otherwise evolution is plain nasty. It`s also true.

Which is the problem I have with theistic evolution. Most mainstream Christian denomonations accept evolution as a fact but suggest that it is the mechanism chosen by god to populate his creation. Which, given that god could by definition have chosen any method including just poofing creatures into being and having them flourish on a diet of moonbeams,implies an utterly callous deity.

Gerry- it does make sense... as far as I know the tailbone is just that. We do not have a tail, not sure if our direct ancestors ever did, but I am sure someone will enlighten me. Hominids split from apes a very long time ago, apes have no tails. How is makes natural selection nonsensical is beyond me.

evolution is not a person or thing and has no mass thus can not create a cause or effect.

Gerry,
The explanation for that poster is that the people who made it *EVOLVED* into idiots who are incapable of recognizing their own self contradictions!

@Canoas,
Yes. You are, of course, correct since there are no gods and, therefore, no god could have caused anything, much less these issues.

The tailbone makes sense to me in an evolutionary sense but maybe I get it wrong...I can be quite daft at times.

Ya know what, I change my mind. This is actually correct.

Evolution has lead to all of those things listed because evolution is real. Without evolution we wouldn`t exist to commit stupid acts like writing up that flyer.

Evolution can`t cause anything unless evolution actually exists. Therefore, these morons must actually accept evolution, they just don`t like it! Also, they are obviously objective since it says so in their stupid group`s title. *If* there is a God, save us from the insanely stupid people of the world (like these folks!) and just leave us with the routinely stupid since the insanely stupid are dangers to themselves and everyone around them, while the routinely stupid are, at least, entertaining!
