The Two Hundredth Anniversity of the Birth of Charles Darwin

By neilb@uk ·
Tags: Off Topic
I think Darwin?s ideas are among the most important in the history of science. He's up there with Copernicus and Gallileo in teaching us that man isn't the centre of the universe and that he has humble beginnings. Personally, I have to say that one of the great contributions of "Origin of Species" has been to curb theocratic thought and promote secularism.

What is incredible is that so many people still actually believe in the mumbo-jumbo of creationism and intelligent design in the 21st Century.

It's Friday! Any religious nutters out there want to get it on?

Ah, meaning lost in translation

by neilb@uk In reply to :0 You only get it on

To "Get it on" in MY country means to engage in fisticuffs (with maybe a bit of kicking involved).

Might have guessed that SOMEONE would put a bit of spin on a perfectly simple request for an argument. AND it would be one of the Usual Suspects.

One of my favorite questions.

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Well Neil :)

How'd that very first 'thing' come about? Religious nutters answer it (not necessarily believably), evolutionists don't.

Another shot at having some fun with the ID/Creationism vs. Evolution debate.

(but not because it's Friday the 13th)

would be the first thing to enter the nothingness, bringing something to 'get it on'. Since there was only nothingness to stop it, it replicated quickly.

How did things start?
How did ALL life come from one organism, yet not retain similar DNA?
Where is the leap from monkey to man proven at?

Ah, the religion of science. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Darwin and Lincoln

Were born only a few days apart.

Learned that from a PBS program "Looking for Lincoln" a rather provocative documentary which tries to assess the real Lincoln. One Author that was interviewed parrallelled their journies.
