"You keep using that word, Joe -- I do not think it means what you think it means..."
You enjoy a singular wit...
"Closed minded", eh? You guys are precious.... Pretending for the sake of argument that "evolutionist" was actually even a word, then riddle me this, -- what would it take to convince you that your Bible was nothing more than a myth and that you and your fellow Christians had been bamboozled all this time? I'm guessing your answer is "nothing", but most people who understand and accept evolution can tell you exactly what it would take to convince them they'd been mistaken regarding evolution -- fossilized rabbits in pre-Cambrian rock strata, for example. Tell me *again* who the close-minded ones are...?
Funny thing -- that "chess with pigeons" line was first used to describe trying to debate creationists on the subject of evolution...
Does this story remind anyone else of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s short story "Harrison Bergeron"? http://www.wordfight.org/bnw/bnw-unit_packet.pdf
Seriously -- go read "Climbing Mount Improbable", and delete this post before you embarrass yourself further.
Which is why Bill Nye was there -- bringing the light of education to the benighted masses...
Scare many crows with those straw men? No reputable scientist is suggesting that "random chance" resulted in the diversity of life we see today. And that's because natural selection -- the second half of the process, combined with mutation, that we call "evolution" -- is the exact OPPOSITE of "random chance". In your ignorance, you and your brethren keep assuming that evolution is an all-or-nothing, single-step process -- like trying to guess the numbers on a combination lock in a single try. But in point of fact, it's more like a game of "Hunt The Slipper", with tiny, changes incrementally improving a population's chances at survival and reproduction over successive generations. If you really want to start understanding just how profoundly mistaken you are about evolution, I'd recommend reading "Climbing Mount Improbable" by Richard Dawkins as a basic primer.
Source, or GTFO.
To even try to make that statement is to entirely miss the point: 1.) EVERY fossil is "transitional" -- life is a continuum, with allele frequency constantly in flux within populations of a species. 2.) We have literally MILLIONS of fossils documenting speciation over the history of life on Earth. 3.) Even if there wasn't a single fossil left in existence, the evidence for evolution by natural selection would STILL be overwhelming and unequivocal, by way of species distribution, comparative anatomy, genetic sequencing, vestigial structures, etc. Sorry, but denial of the evidence doesn't make it go away. Best if you get yourself an education on the subject before attempting to comment again -- you'll save yourself a lot of future embarrassment and humiliation...
