Re: creationism too
The fact things evolve is not particularly good evidence for "evolution"
This is perhaps the funniest statement I've read all week.
"The fact that X happens is not particularly good evidence for X!"
which is the theory of universal common descent, the microbe to man story (myth?).
And this is simply wrong. It's like saying that the theory that describes the formation of our solar system is the same as the theory describing galaxy formation. Are the two related? Kind of. In a way. But just like evolution and universal common descent, they are two independant theories. If one is struck down, it does not necessarily mean that the other is false.
You, randman, are the one being intellectually dishonest, by equating two seperate, independant theories as if they are one and the same.

Every time a fundy breaks the laws of thermodynamics, Schroedinger probably kills his cat.
