RE: Science against evolution
Poe's law again - no emoticons in your post so no way to distinguish whether you were making a joke or missing the boat.

Pro tip; go with the emoticons. Wink

Humor existed in written form and spoken form before emoticons. I wouldn't want to see a standup comedian hold up an emoticon to tell me when he's telling a joke, but that's just me.

RE: Science against evolution
With the spoken form of humour, exists subtle tones in the voice of the speaker which, unless they are supremely skilled, give away that they are telling a joke.

In written form, authors usually show a character is joking by adding a descriptor; He said jokingly, he grinned as he, she smiled at her own wit, I hid a smile, etc.

On the internet however, you cannot use either means unless through voice or video chat, or role playing.

So when I read America The Book or Earth, A Visitors Guide, where does it say "Stephen Colbert said jokingly" or "Jon Stewart said with a wry grin"

RE: Science against evolution
To OP.

I think I will just skip all these 13 pages of your answers and try to figure out only one thing. Who in their right mind would go to a web site that looks like this one and then actually believe anything it is written there? Science against evolution? First of all, that is an oxymoron, it is the very definition of that word. You don't know what it means? It means exactly that.

Can someone tell me, how is it that one can know so much about biology, science, physics, evolution, beginning of life, yet they are unable to make a web site that looks like a web site? Why is it that this site looks like it came out from the early 90's, it is completely unreadable, with bright strange colors and ads... So much ads and shit...

Next time when someone want to point out their sources and claims, please, use something that will actually benefit your cause, not something that will discredit you in the first half of a second.

This site can go to the "Worst websites in the world" page.

Or in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the book is written in a very serious tone even tho ridiculous things are constantly happening.

My point is I shouldn't have to rely on emoticons ( something I rarely use in the first place either due to laziness on my part or forgetfulness.) My original statement that Pokemon would be a boring game without evolution itself was clearly a joke. How is it my fault that someone wanted to be a knowitall and say "actually evolution in Pokemon is really bla bla bla".

I said "usually", often the language itself implies humour or irony. However, your "jokes" did not carry any implication of humour. And, if they did, they were likely skipped over due to the mind boggling amount of stupid that has been here recently.

It's a fundamentalist conspiracy to cause infighting among the atheists in this thread. Yep. Totally.
