Enjoy!

Note: Apparently Amazon linked the wrong book to the Charles Darwin book. The cover is correct, you are "buying" Charles Darwin but they have linked the wrong book. I have alerted Amazon who should hopefully correct the mistake. Thanks to barryquinn for the alert!

      That is the power of religion.
      Sometime around the 80's or 90's there was a shift from church being the main religion to the gaia/earth mother/climate gods. Where once it was de facto to believe in God or be labelled a heretic, now you must believe in the earth mother mythos or risk being burned at the stake.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same…

        Do you mean the change from multi god beliefs (sun god, wind, etc) to monotheism? I thought this happened many many centuries ago and not when Michael Jackson was getting popular? :-)

            @1st-Amendment: Well can you point to someone who is actually at risk of being burnt at the stake for not believing in the ”earth mother mythos" or are you just referring to melodramatic snowflakes? Is the irony in my post that I am burning you at the stake right now? Because you're a snowflake? You're right it must be lost on me.

My first question still stands, too. Who has been threatened to be burnt at the stake? Tony Abbott? Jordan Petersen? Lel

Your obvious attempts at avoiding my questions are really only proving my initial assumption. I'll ask one more time. Who has been threatened to be burnt at the stake? What are you even suggesting to be staying the same? Sounds like a "deepity" if I've ever heard one.

                            @1st-Amendment: Ahhh so finally you got it! It took a while but you finally dragged yourself back around to admit that your reference to stake burning was a metaphor! So while you have the dictionary out, read your definition again, and then tell me how you aren't likening modern persecution to historical executions. This then also begs the question which burnings at the stake are you referring to? Is it ones perpetrated in the name of religion as the "more things stay the same" comment seems to suggest? Is it just horrible writing? Since you got so excited about pointing out what a figure of speech is, my money is on the latter. Haha

        Can you not differentiate between religion, where people are encouraged (and/or forced) to believe blindly in a story made up by someone (who may call themselves God or messiah or prophet) and science, where you need solid evidence to support whatever you are saying?

        •  

          there is no solid evidence for any macroevolution
          And the fossils backup Creation, not disprove it ;)

          • +3 votes

            @DarthPyro: The evidence for evolution is robust and can be easily verified.
            Fossils are evidence that organisms existed in the past and that they evolved over time. It has nothing to do with backing up Creation nor disproving it.

            •  

              @MrBin: Fossils prove sudden not gradual existence

              And we can always discuss the dating methods for human fossils if you'd like.

              • +1 vote

                @DarthPyro: Evolution suggests that between the earliest known human ancestors millions of years ago and the current modern human (hundreds of thousands of years ago) there should be “in between” species with features progressively more humanlike and less apelike. This prediction was confirmed with fossils record.
                If you have a better method of dating fossils, please go ahead and publish it, you may earn a Nobel prize along the way. That’s how science works.

                •  

                  @MrBin: Yes that is one of the many things evolution assumes

                  but even your feathered reptilian bird doesn't prove anything.

                  And these 'in between' species exclude other (and more likely) options

          @MrBin Actually we know for certain this book was written and made up by someone who was qualified in theology.

          Then look at your other comments saying the evidence is robust and can be easily verified?

          What is your best evidence of a transitional fossil? Is it Lucy, whose mere fragments are literally filled in with bronze which we know for certain was fabricated by a human sculptor after the fragments were discovered?

          I feel sorry for people blindly following this religion with literally fabricated evidence.

      "Mad" is an oversimplification, though plenty certainly were. But it caused problems for him at every level, including tension in his marriage. You really need to understand the society and culture of the time and place before you can step out of your own thinking to appreciate people's beliefs and attitudes. Good biographies are out there if you really are interested.

      I'd have been annoyed if I was Alfred Wallace, the guy that was (at the very least) prepared to present the theory first, only for Charles, who was asked to review Alfred's work, to then cobble together a paper to present alongside his.

    "Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system—with all these exalted powers—Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin."

      I'm not sure. This is still steeped in the notion that we are special /higher / more evolved, which we are, but only to ourselves and in our own minds. I'm pretty sure Darwin was onto something but I think, as a philosophical matter, our utter unimportance was much better developed by others, both before and especially after him.

    People can believe that a cat and a tigers are related but a chimp and human are not.
    House cats and tigers share 95.6 percent of DNA,
    Humans and chimps share 98.8 percent of DNA but you always hear some religiot argue the fact that they have nothing in common with chimps.

    •  

      Maybe that's because there is a common designer, God and not that you were once a monkey and suddenly became a human.
      In most cases, you don't evolve, you adapt.

      • +1 vote

        It goes deeper than that though. It's not just "common parts", but common sequencing, that makes no sense if evolution didn't happen. If it was directly done by God, God would be reproducing inefficiently sequencing in multiple animals.

        If you're a Christian, a good book to read is The Language of God by Francis Collins. Collins is a Christian who was the head of the Human Genome Project. The book is about the evidence for evolution and how the integrates that with the biblical texts and his Christianity.

        it's almost like DNA is mostly used to determine the structure, mass, internal contents, orientation and purpose of a lifeform, and the last 10% is how it all looks.

    Lucky Charles didn’t live in the 21st century. He’d be stuck on classifying a person who identifies as a toaster with a knife fork and spoon for genitalia.

    There was an interesting doco I watched that our features do come from monkeys but our DNA was changed by aliens.
    It happened around Iraq and that’s were the garden of eden was supposed to be.
    It said that they gave us the gift of speech and be able to think. Something evolution could not have done in the short time it took.
    Also that once we understand more about our DNA then we would know more about them.
    I have a feeling the doco was Ancient Aliens.

    So at which point did humans stop having genders and gender became a social construct?

    •  

      So much around us is a social construct. Most fail to realise that.

      An example of a social construct is money or the concept of currency, as people in society have agreed to give it importance/value…
      And Currencies are quite fluid, changing in value by the second, & occasionally their name changes (Pound to Dollar here in 1966)!

      German travellers have told me Australians are wrong for driving on the left…

      So many people hold strong opinions & are offended when they are confronted by a different social construct to the one they hold!
      (Hence negs here for any view different to people's strongly held social constructs from a different belief!!)

      Realising that makes us think, rather than accept what we like to assume.
