It Is Just a Theory

Evolution is both a theory and a fact. Contrary to the lies Christians love to tell, evolution is not a theory in the everyday sense of a hunch or a best guess, e. g. I have a theory about where the water on the kitchen floor is coming from. Scientists call those hypotheses. Evolution is a theory in the same sense as music theory, cell theory, germ theory, theory of relativity or the theory of gravity. There is no doubt about which notes make up a C chord. There is no doubt that halving the length of a string bumps the plucked note up exactly one octave. Similarly there is no doubt that creatures evolved and continue to evolve. Theory, in this sense, means a mathematical model that describes and predicts observed facts. Evolution is also a fact because we have watched it happen in the fossil record, in our DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid), in artificial selection that we use to create domestic plants and animals and in the way diseases and pests evolve resistance to our measures to eradicate them. There is no evidence for any competing explanation, including creationism. Even Pope Jean Paul conceded evolution was the best scientific explanation. Even when you explain this to a creationist and you are sure he understands, you will catch him a day later trolling his same old evolution is just a theory bit of dissembling. The problem is more dishonesty that ignorance.

Saintly Magic

If you pray to St. Bartholomew of Cleves, the patron saint of fools and write three letters about it, one to your mother, one to your best friend and one to a high school teacher, your shampoo bottle will always have one more serving in it, even if you don’t buy any more. This also works for mayonnaise.
