Quotes - You're Doing It Wrong
Er... JBR...
Your quote is bullshit.
There is a general tendency for a quote to end where the quotation marks end. Your quotation marks end in the middle of the "quote". That is a clue.
Twain said the first bit, but the second sentence is not his. You're just quoting the fool whose site you got the quote off.
If you would like a real Twain quote about evolution though, you are welcome to this one;
quote:
Adam is fading out. It is on account of Darwin and that crowd. I can see that he is not going to last much longer. - Mark Twain
Mutate and Survive

On two occasions I have been asked, — "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question. - Charles Babbage

Re: The Scopes trial
JBR, why do you keep posting things that aren't true?
Osborn did not testify at Scopes. Nebraska Man was not mentioned at the the Scopes trial. The image of Nebraska Man was not published all over the world. It was not presented in textbooks, only in a single magazine.
When Modulous said that this thread was a place for you to "be funny", I don't think this is quite what he had in mind. Your posts here today are the wrong kind of funny. We are after funny-on-purpose, AKA wit. Your posts are certainly laughable, but that's not quite the same thing.
Fortunately, there is a thread just for you. Scientific vs Creationist Frauds and Hoaxes is exactly the place for you to create hoaxes and propagate bizarre falsehoods. Why not take your nonsense there, so that it can be demolished in an on-topic fashion? Thank you.
