How Far Can YOU Get?   5 comments

Read this, and tell me how far you get before you feel like this:

I didn’t get past, “Since World War II a majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the evolutionary position which employs methodological naturalism have been atheists“, the third sentence.  I did read the whole thing, though… although I might have to medicate myself to recover from this section.

  1. Look, Pat, if conservatives can’t attack empiricism without the likes of you calling them on it, the terrorists have already won.

    Alternately: the conservatives are the real terrorists.

  2. fun fact: research into the ill effects of alcohol on the fetus featured heavily in the early eugenics movement. (it was thought that the alcohol actually caused mutations that could be passed on. the entire resultant line would be “degenerates and idiots”: something to be stamped out.) so, if [(leads some to eugenics)–>evil] is true, then claiming that alcohol can harm the developing fetus is likewise EEEEvil! just so’s you know. fetus and i are gonna go knock one back for jesus.

  3. In answer to your question, I got this far:
    “The theory of evolution posits a process of transformation from simple life forms to more complex life forms, which has never been observed or duplicated in a laboratory.”

    Then… kaboom. Though, frankly, I kind of enjoy the idea of some poor slob of a grad student being instructed to observe a flask of amino acids for an eon or two, then report back on his findings.)

    PS> Thanks for the link in your other post!

  4. Whole article seems to have been written, added to and edited by the same person. I didn’t try to create an account, but I’ll bet the sucker is locked too.

    Also, if you really want to see a fine ‘example’ of neutral point of view, cruise on over to the article on Barack Obama. They love him to bits.

    • Most of the articles on that entire wiki site were made with the same account. The revision history is hilarious; you can almost track the changing of “far right talking points” in the media as the changes were made to the article.
