50 completely "logical" reasons why creationists reject evolution...

Posted by Cervi_Messias on Aug 20th, 2012

<!-- start content -->50 reasons why I (a creationist) reject evolution
 

1.) Because I don’t like the idea that we came from apes… despite that humans are categorically defined and classified as apes.

2.) Because I’m too stupid and/or lazy to open a fucking book or turn on the Discovery Science Channel.

3.) Because if I can’t immediately understand how something works, then it must be bullshit.

4.) Because I don’t care that literally 99.9% of all biologists accept evolution as the unifying theory of biology.

5.) Because I prefer the idea that a (insert god of choice) went ALLA-KADABRA-ZAM MOTHAH-FUCKAHS!!!

6.) Because I can’t get it through my thick logic-proof skull that evolution refers ONLY to the process of speciation, not to abiogenesis, or planet formation, or big bang cosmology, or whether God exists, or where they buried Jimmy Hoffa, or why the sky is blue, or how many licks it takes to get to the center of a fucking Tootsie Pop.

7.) Because the fossil record doesn’t comprise the remains of every single living thing that ever existed on this 4.5 billion year old planet, even though fossilization is a rare process that only occurs under very specific circumstances.

8.) Because science has yet to produce any transitional species… except for the magnitudinous numbers of them found in the fossil record which don’t count because… I uh, OOH LOOK! A SHINY OBJECT!!! *runs away*

9.) Because I know nothing about Darwin except that he had a funny beard.

10.) Because the theory of evolution (which, according to scientists, perfectly explains the richness and diversity of life on Earth) contradicts biblical literalism… ya know, flat Earth with a firmament that keeps out the water, talking snakes, people rising from the dead, bats are birds, flamey talking bushes, virgin births, food appearing out of nowhere, massive bodies of water turning into blood… etc etc.

11.) Because I think the word “theory” actually means: “random stabs in the dark” when it really means: "an explanation of certain phenomena that is well-supported by a large body of facts and often unifies other similarly well-supported hypotheses" i.e. atomic theory, gravitational theory, germ theory, cell theory, some-people-are-dumb-motherfuckers-theory, etc.

12.) Because the fact that science is self-correcting annoys me. Most of my other beliefs are rigidly fixed and uncorrectable.

13.) Because I am under the severely mistaken impression that evolution implies someone in my very recent ancestry was a chimp.

14.) Because everything appears designed to my mind which was expertly tuned by nature to perceive design, probably as a survival mechanism.

15.) Because some secretly fabulous closet-dwelling televangelist (who unironically preaches hate towards gays) told me that evolution is Satan’s way of leading me away from God.

16.) Because that same guy (who was also caught snorting blow off a male hooker’s shiny naked ass) told me that God planted those fossils to test my faith.

17.) Because I’m 100% correct about everything 100% of the time and there is 0% chance that some snooty Oxford educated scientist with numerous honorary doctorates could possibly know something that I don’t.

18.) Because I don’t know that fossils are found in sedimentary strata corresponding to their age as one would expect if evolution were true.

19.) Because I don’t understand why, if we share common ancestry with chimps, there are still chimps. And when someone with more than three brain cells in their head inevitably replies: “for the same reason Americans share common ancestry with Brits but there are still Brits, I can’t follow the logic. It’s just too big a leap. Who am I, Evil Knievel?

20.) Because my mom dropped me on my head when I was a baby.

21.) Multiple times.

22.) On purpose.

23.) Because the idea that life evolved naturally over billions of years is infinitely less believable than the idea that an 800 year old man crammed two of every species into a giant wooden boat when the entire planet flooded, an event for which there is absolutely no geological evidence whatsoever and also makes no fucking sense at all.

24.) Because Jesus totally rode around on a fucking t-rex. He’s just that badassed. And also, did you know that t-rexes were vegetarians? Ken Ham says so and I believe it.

25.) Because I don’t realize that saying “microevolution is possible but macroevolution isn’t” is as stupid as saying “I can pick my nose for one second but I cannot pick it for 10 seconds.”

26.) Because the education system failed me miserably.

27.) …and then took a big wet dump on my face.

28.) Because I think that knowing how nature works magically obliterates all of its beauty.

29.) Because I didn’t know that evolution has been tested and observed in laboratories.

30.) Because when confronted with that, I refuse to believe it. It’s obviously a scientific conspiracy aimed at turning everyone on the planet into atheists... even though evolution says nothing about god's nature nor whether he, she, it, or they exist.

31.) Because I’m too stupid to realize that Social Darwinism has nothing to do with evolution and is actually a pseudo-scientific bastardization that real science largely rejects.

32.) Because the planet and all the life on it was designed for humans… kinda like how the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY was designed specifically for the dust-bunnies that may accumulate on the floors.

33.) Because I don’t realize that if we actually found croco-ducks in the fossil record, it would falsify evolution.

34.) Because plenty of respectable people like Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee (who are not scientists) don’t accept evolution, and that somehow validates my opinion.

35.) Because my mother didn’t know not to drink while she was pregnant. She also didn’t know not to repeatedly throw herself down a flight of stairs in an attempt to undo the accident of screwing someone who voted for Bush both times.

36.) Because I don’t know that “irreducible complexity” has been debunked a frazillion times by a frazillion different people and is no more credible an argument than “NEEN-er NEEN-er NEEN-er, I’m right and you’re wrong.”

37.) Because I have never seen a duck evolve into a cat over night, despite the fact that such a thing would be contrary to all known scientific disciplines.

38.) Because I have no imagination, learning is too much effort, I don’t like proven facts, change scares me, and I think deoxyribonucleic acid is something I’m supposed to clean my bathroom floors with.

39.) Because evolution means that I absolutely MUST reject everything else I know, abandon all my beliefs, and start aping around my house like a fucking monkey. OOOh-ooohh-ooohohh -OOOOOOHHHHHH!!!!!

40.) Because I haven’t put my cave on the market and moved into the 21st century yet. I’m waiting for the cave market to rebound from the recent financial meltdown.

41.) Because I don’t know what an atavism is and if you told me, I still wouldn't believe it. Too weird.

42.) Because I don’t know that evolution explains methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and also provides the answer in preventing it from turning into a superbug and killing massive numbers of people.

43.) Because I don’t know that evolution is routinely used in medicine to diagnose and treat certain illnesses such as genetic ailments, bacterial infections, and viral infections.

44.) Because I believe there is a strong comparison between designed inanimate objects such as buildings, paintings, and watches (which we know were pieced together from identifiable components by human beings) and living organisms (which reproduce with genetic variation under the effects of environmental attrition).

45.) Because I see no significant similarities between humans and apes. *scratches my ass-crack then smells my fingers*

46.) Because I think I’m too special to have been crafted by any natural process and the entire planet, solar system, galaxy, and universe were created with me especially in mind.

47.) Because I unquestioningly swallow the ignorant anti-science bullshit spewed directly from the fraudulent stupid asses of people like Ken Ham, Ted Haggard, Fred Phelps, and Kent Hovind.

48.) Because I’m a freethinker and freethinking really means ignoring anything that contradicts what I already believe.

49.) Because I don’t know what confirmation bias is.

50.) Because despite the fact that in all my years of life, I have never seen any magic, I still believe magic is the answer to anything I don’t immediately comprehend.

Ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case. Quod erat demonstrandum, I fucking win. Take that you EVILutionists!

thats a lot of reading....i'll read it all, just im forced to go outside:( oh well i'll have to get my sketch book:) anyways i read point four and just because a bunch of people say its right doesnt make it right, a lot of people were against the idea of God in the days of Noah, and the flood came and took them all away. also a lot of people though a big rock fell faster then a small rock, but they fall at the same speed. a lot of people though bleeding someone to death would heal them, but the bible clearly pointed out that the life of the flesh is in the blood. a lot of people though the earth was flat, but its not. you see majority isnt always right, Hitler was elected by the majority.

The only credible thing you brought up was that the majority isn't always right. Religious people are the majority...and the majority of them believe in some form of creationism and reject evolution.

Other than that, you just completely managed to ignore virtually every point he made.

It should be noted that these are Biologists you are talking about as well. These aren't some uneducated slobs like you, they actually went to school for a long period of time to study this (not to mention they worked in the field). It's safe to say that they are informed on their opinion... If they're informed on the subject then their opinions matter, equating science to democracy is incorrect because science is independent of what people WANT.

It isn't just opinions Admiral, it's outright supported by the evidence. All they do is follow and record the evidence gathered to support a theory. The theories they throw up get demolished by other scientists if a problem is found, and then the theory must be modified.

Evolution has been modified to fit the evidence and so has Abiogenesis and the BBT. I think it's safe to say many years from now we will have learned much more in all those fields (especially Abiogenesis).

Abiogenesis? Just another word for the unscientific theory of spontaneous generation which was debunked centuries ago. That in itself presents a major flaw for evolution because abiogenesis/spontaneous generation happens to be the precursor to evolution.

Technically abiogenesis is an updated model of spontaneous generation but the concept is still the same: Life from dead things which has never been observed and has no empirical evidence.

Now it may sound simple but all evidences, observations and experiments state that you can only get life from life and sometimes the simple answer is the correct one.

What does this mean for evolution? Well you either arrive at the idea of a god guiding it (which would be ridiculous unless this god is rather weak, or the creator of this universe or the deistic god) or a god simply creating all life.

Considering the actual evidences against evolution (flawed models, incomplete models, lack of transitional fossil evidences showing a complete species evolving) I think I'll go with creationism or as I call it, Intelligent Design.

Not according to the dictionary definition:

http://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/abiogenesis

Definition of ABIOGENESIS

"The supposed spontaneous origination of living organisms directly from lifeless matter—called also spontaneous generation."

Supposed because it's an assumption made without evidence.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/abiogenesis

abiogenesis [ˌeɪbaɪəʊˈdʒɛnɪsɪs]
n
"1. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Biology) Also called autogenesis the hypothetical process by which living organisms first arose on earth from nonliving matter
2. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Biology) another name for spontaneous generation Compare biogenesis"

Nice try Helge but it's clear you're ignoring the truth or you really don't know what spontaneous generation is. It's not "life appearing out of nowhere" actually. Spontaneous generation is the fairy tale theory that life can arise from non-life.

http://www.accessexcellence.org/RC/AB/BC/Spontaneous_Generation.php

But I'm finished with this. Deer_Hunter is free to believe what he wants but I'm happy believing God formed us from dust rather than what atheism teaches in that we spontaneously formed from poo, food and mud.

Lol. Amusing to read, and I agree on your overall point that Religious people useally ignore anything that contradicts their beliefs.

However, maybe you could present it more... Nicely? xD.

I'm sure most people would see this as very offensive. I understand your frustration at the arrogance and ignorance of Religion, and understand that sometimes being polite is very annoying when you just want to shout at people (I've done the same myself... xD) however presenting it more politley may avoid the imminent rage war that shall happen any moment now...

Yeah I agree with ten. I really don't like being around religious nutties (like Osama was, who even made a YouTube video after 9-11 admitting he did it, only a real lunatic would do that). I especially dislike those Christians that are too self-righteous (ya know, like the ones that say say you're going to hell for wearing a shirt with things like skulls on them (which actually happened to me before)). Now I do not deny the fact that evolution could exist, but like the article was mentioned it was not about whether not god exists, its about how organisms change gradually over a long period of time.

I guess the truth is I'm just a wanderer in the universe.

Elf: The majority of people on planet Earth believe in a form of deity or something supernatural.

Indeed, everyone "believed", or was forced to believe, that Religion and God were real.

And you are completly and utterly right. Just because the majority believes in something, doesn't mean it exsists. Many young children, for example, believe in Santa. And the Tooth Fairy. And the Easter Bunny. No real proof of their exsistance, nothing to suggest they exsist. But hey! You were told they exsist by your mum and dad, and read about Santa and the rest of the gang in books! Ha! They *must* be real then. Right?

Great my work's half done!! (more like mostly done)

Anyways:
16. Ever considered the flood?

23. One there was one of each KIND not species! Second, Noah took slightly less mature creatures, instead of the biggest he could find. Lastly, Noah's measurements COULD have been slightly larger.

24. Job 41 (I think) discribes dinosaurs, and from reading genesis 1, and 6(i think) I came to the conclusion that animals were not afraid of humans before the flood, that everyone and everything ate plants before the flood. Otherwise feeding all the animals would have been extremely difficult.

29. Claiming anything without some sort of sorce is...MEANINGLESS!!

38. I learned what DNA stands for in grade 6. You could have altered it enough to make it a bit kinder you know;)

50.Yeah keep trying to answer things that are IMPOSSIBLE to be explained by random chance. I have had many instances where I litterly, see God performing miracles. I am evidence of a miracle, I would have died had it not been for God's power. Oh well you probably don't want to hear my life's story. Also how can you explain the fact that the cures God gave to the Israelites, actually work? (random chance?)

*cough* That's not our belief, that's yours. A magical being poofing into existence, creates everything we know from nothing, and then turns around to create humans from dirt, women from man's rib, etc.

Not to mention in the next scene a serpent convinces the women to eat the fruit and destroy humanity's chances of a perfect life. There was no setup plan. You must wonder what God would've done if they didn't eat from the tree.

It's a fairy tale, and like I said, you can convince yourself to believe it. Just like how you can deny scientific fact that disproves **** like that from happening!

Our stance is that we don't know if a God exists or how the universe came to be. All we know are the facts of our given reality and try to use them to decipher the secrets of the universe. That's it.

It's like dismissing all ancient text about a group of people yet wondering what the artifacts are. I like both God and science. Science was created by God.

Again, you slip around the basic concept. A God coming from nothing has the same goddamn chance as the universe coming from nothing. Secondly, a lot of Christians like to fill the Bible with all their ******** on what they think it means. "God planned the downfall of humanity all along" even though it says nowhere in the Bible about it being planned from the beginning or even hinted.

They try to make sense to something that cannot be made sense of. Another example of this would be an evolutionist Christian who believes in everything past the OT accounts but ultimately ignores the OT accounts. The NT follows the OT; if the OT is not perceived to be true, ultimately the NT isn't true either.

There is no fall of man, so what are they being saved from when Jesus comes around? Nothing. Therefore the only real options are creationism or evolution without the 'book Gods'. Creationism is magical thinking, while evolution is restricted to the bounds of what we can prove exists.

At this point, evolution remains dominant because it is the only side that can prove itself.

Christianity can prove itself just as much as evolution. Both are worldveiws, and both take faith. If the fall of man didn't happen then we would all be living happily, ignorant of good and evil, and constantly in the presence of God. Also the story could NOT be made up, because if it was made up I am sure for more believable purposes, the writers/story tellers would have kept the part where Adam and Eve knew no right and wrong, out of the story.

It's kinda like how you dismissed the actual scientific sites I put up long ago concerning The Big Bang and how scientists have no idea what caused it or ultimately what created the universe which was contrary to your claim of scientists saying nothing caused it because the universe arose from nothing which is a theory supported by no evidence.

The simple answer to the BBT for now is: we don't know what caused it. It could've been anything. Our reality could be a realistic illusion for all we know. Hell, there's a possibility the universe had no beginning, that it always existed in it's 'non-existence'.

I visited the sites since I didn't have much time but from just looking at it, they are a huge source of one-sided propaganda. "If it's not this thing...GOD DUN IT".

Sorry, but magical thinking is not the answer when we cannot find a natural explanation at the time. Natural explanations have arisen the more we investigate a certain subject.

8) Another creationist website... Irregardless the author seems like a smart man (PhD in chemistry). However chemistry is distinctly NOT biology or archeology. I'm not well versed enough in biology to explain everything he talks about, but he is also not well versed enough to say them in the first place. Keep in mind also that evolution is (for lack of a better word) evolving all the time. New evidence comes up and is added to the list, thats how science makes progress. If we had all the answers now then there would be no need for evolutionary biologists anymore (the same is true for every field of science as well, they are always changing)

9)Haha this is funny because it has no bearing to his theories at all. Just a thought but is Darwin was insane (implying his theories are wrong?) I'm pretty sure someone would've pointed it out over the last 170 years or so (Creationists don't count because they have no credentials).

After reading the article though, it seems Darwin suffered from every single malady that existed... except for the the title of the article (insanity), or at least the type of insanity that would make people question his theory (which i again would point out is quote sound). As i read i found myself asking "and?" That's a sign of a very poorly written article. I don't know what point each paragraph was trying to make, pretty much "he suffered from this: <gives quote> <next paragraph>"

On top of all that the author of the article didn't even do proper research because it has been noted that Darwin was influenced by many who came before him. One of the things the article tries to discredit him on is 'sadism' (again, how does this affect anything?). If the author decided to do proper research he would know that Darwin took the idea from Thomas Malthus (an economist) who's ideas were about how humans will expand and use every resource in an area, then expand more. Darwin used this as the basic for natural selection. There are many other influences but Malthus was the main one...

25) "gene for long hair (H) and a gene for short hair (h)" okay i don't know everything about biology, but i do know that those are not genes, they are alleles. So the author doesn't know what they're talking about! Great... (he says gene multiple times BTW so this isn't just a typo, it is a large error) As for the quote from Dr. Lee Spetner, well... Maybe he's called a biophysicist because he came up with some theory of evolution but his education is BS in mechanical engineering and a PhD in Physics (again he has NO credentials).

On top of all that his quote is just plain out WRONG, mutation is not just the removal of information... Go read wikipedia: En.wikipedia.org

I don't even need to go farther because i just debunked that article, nothing they could say after that will make sense now... I just read it and yeah its all ********. :D

51) "First Law of Thermodynamics: Energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another. The First Law of Thermodynamics (Conservation) states that energy is always conserved, it cannot be created or destroyed. In essence, energy can be converted from one form into another."

Also the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution are two separate things (that website you linked were listing them together).

16) Well after staring at your 'sentence' for a couple mins i surmised that you're suggesting the flood killed the animals and then they fossilized on the surface of the Earth? (correct me if i'm wrong because it's hard to reply to something which is so poorly written, the point isn't even there...). My reply to that would just be: were there dinosaurs 6000 (or how ever many) years ago? and also: How did so much rock and debris get on top of them in 6000 years?

23) Firstly: care to explain? does that mean 'genus', 'family' or what? if he brought one of each 'kind' on the boat then that would actually support the theory of evolution lol. Secondly, ok so he brought a bunch of baby wolves on the boat or somthing? Or do you mean just smaller animals (not babies). Seriously explain what you're saying so i don't have to guess. Thirdly, oh ok that makes it all clear i guess. He must've been pretty far off in his measurements though? Animals i might be able to see (it would;ve been slave-boat-like conditions but maybe) but where did he keep all the food? (animals eat a lot!) and water (he couldn't drink the seas water because of the salt, or maybe the rain was enough for every animal to drink? But then the seas today would probably be pretty much fresh because of all that dilution from the rain. Your story doesn't work, sorry boy...)

24) Leviathan is referring to whales BTW not Dinosaurs lol. Unless before the flood everyone ate plants but they still went fishing for dinosaurs? WTF are you even talking about? I'm not even gonna respond to the rest of your comment because it's just too stupid.

29) Google it. That's what I have to do every time you say something without a source (every time you say somthin BTW)

38) Funny how you only took objection to that, the rest is true i'm guessing? Also if you really get your knickers in a knot over that then you need to get some thicker skin... jeez

50) I think you should join the debate team, personal anecdotes always make the best evidence for somthing. This one time i saw some preacher push some guy in a wheelchair over, then he got up and he could walk!!!! HOLY JEBUS IT MUST BE GOD!!!11!one I agree it is a miracle you're alive, i though you would've forgotten to breathe by now :)

As for bible cures... well:

Leviticus 14:

49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
50 And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water:
51 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:
52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:
53 But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields, and make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean.

I can't prove that works, but the MINUTE the walls of your house get leprosy just call me and ill try it out on your house...
