Now now, let's not team up on somebody because of their beliefs.

Even if they're bullshit.

It's true. Thoughts we can debate and argue.

Beliefs? Those are sacred. We get to have those unchallenged.

Iron Horse is Iron Horse.

I think we all know his MO. It's amazing how we keep prodding him to do something different.

That said, it does a feel a little ugly in here tonight. . .

Well more importantly because 'debating' beliefs always ends up in a pissing match.

There's no amount of internet chat that can change the way somebody thinks.

I apologize if that's what you understood that to be, but my post was directed at nobody and was still serious. In fact, I never really even picked a side. I'm not picking fun at people or mocking anyone... but look around.

Does this mean you have to believe the old testament was written by Moses?

Seriously.

As for the topic at hand, gotta agree with Nye on this one. I too agree that it is possible to believe both in God and the concept of evolution. That said, if you want to learn the story of Creation, that's what churches and religious schools/classes are for. It is not a type of science, it is a religious worldview, so it doesn't belong in a discussion of scientific topics. I don't get why that's so hard for people to understand.

And the idea that people out there actually reject the notion of evolution altogether just floors me. Let's take a most basic example-what the hell do people think caterpillars turning into butterflies or tadpoles turning into frogs is, if not a type of evolution?

That's metamorphosis, not evolution. It's a completely different mechanism

The more in-your-face example is, how do people think dogs got so wildly varied in size and appearance in less than 10,000 years. Sure, humans were directing that process. but still.

BUT STILL, GUYS.
