If a group of people at a public meeting reverently mash up bananas and pack them into their ears and nostrils, am I obligated to pretend to take this seriously out of respect for these loons’ beliefs? I think not. Similarly I don’t see why I have to feign respect when Christians with pained expressions of reverence and lowered eyes petition the sky god to bend the laws of causality with a magic incantation. Christianity is just as silly as the banana mashers and far more malevolent.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)

How Could Evolution Be Wrong?
- Populations don’t really change. But we watch them change every day.
- All creatures have equal chance at survival and reproduction. We have seen that is not true.
- Over time creatures with the characteristics of the best reproducer do not spread. We have seen this is not true.
So how could evolution be false? It is too obvious to be wrong. We have seen it working. Creationists claim it is false. What about it is false?~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
