Went to church today - Weapons Grade Evolution Fail
Our pastor today said " I don't believe in evolution because we have all these fully developed bodily systems. And how could mankind slowly and eventually develop those? How can you walk around with half a digestive system!!???? Did they ever think of that?"

I looked around and people were nodding in agreement.

I about fell out if my chair.

There's a reason that studies show that the more educated portions of society are markedly less inclined to be religious.

Confirmation bias leading ignorance is the number one enemy of progress.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

... yes. Evolution works from the bottom up. Human toes evolved alongside dinosaurs. Once the ankle arrived, we could kind of flop around a bit, stepping on stuff. The half-digestive system was a challenging stage, with just open bits of intestine above the groin, waiting for rain and berries to fall in the right hole. It wasn't as bad as the mid-chest era, the "Cardiacian" in archaeological terms. That's when we began continually spurting blood from below what would some day be our armpits.

The process is not complete, of course. Male pattern baldness is actually incomplete evolution. In our final stage, we'll all have thick Afros until we turn 969 years old.

Yes, the idea among the creationists seems to be that if they are ignorant of something then it doesn't exist. It's beyond obnoxious.

Stop going to church, suggestion of easing that pain.

If you can't get out of it, run a set of earbuds up your sleeve and fasten to your wrist (under your shirt) with a watch or tape. Insert audio book or metal music of choice...sit there and pretend to be bored like everyone else.

You guys crack me up. I agree to go to church for family harmony. And there are some inspiring messages. But today's was an exercise in reverse peristalsis control.

I'd loudly do the cliche facepalm and then laugh at the punchlines like I was at a comedy show.


Not even funny though. Dodgy
