Cherry-picked what?

Evolution is a natural process - humans aren't 'using' it.

Maybe you are talking about just biological evolution. There is more than just biological evolution you know.

There are people on this forum I always make it point to try to respond to them. I don't always respond to them but I do try. You're not on that list. I thought you had potential but for now I have given up on you. I'm going to put you on my ignore list so that I don't have to keep forgiving you.

Actually the first person you need to forgive is your mom, for not using better birth control... Drinking Beverage


Big fucking whoop, I already assumed that I was on your ignore list. You hadn't bothered to respond to anything for the last few days across multiple thread, so no change there. If all you're going to do is close yourself off from criticism, why not leave the forums? As much as I disagree with you, and SleazyJesus, and Egor, and whatever sock-puppet Blasphemous is using; I'd never put you on the ignore list. That's seems both cowardly and intellectually flaccid. So there will now be a string of rebuttals you'll never respond to, which will make your arguments look all the weaker because of it (not that you needed any help there to begin with).

You don't say. Have you already forgotten what this topic is about?

When we say evolution, we assume it to mean biological evolution. We don't use the term evolution in place of 'change over time' in other fields to prevent confusion, didn't you get the memo?

If you must use evolution, be more specific instead of assuming we know what your talking about. Using precise language is a must to get your point across.

If it helps, when I think of intelligent agents (humans) using what they have learned about evolution to direct outcomes in certain species development, I tend to use the word "breeding". Is that what you're talking about, HJ?

Heylook Yahwehblowsme assumes quite a lot.
Maybe he also believes people have some kind of telepathy and we should be able to read his mind and just know what he's talking about. He also seems to think species can see into the future to see how they're supposed to evolve.

He's trying to convince everyone that all the marbles in the bin are white in this thread, as well. Drinking Beverage

I never claimed that just because you draw white marbles out of a bin it means all the marbles in the bin are white. I claimed that the more white marbles you draw from the bin which are white while not drawing a marble of another color, the more likely it becomes that all the marbles in the bin are white. It could be that thru happenstance the last marble you draw is black...outliers happen.

Kim, people would find you more credible if you were actually truthful.

If I desire to be around light colored moths, is it breeding if I plant light colored trees?

I stated nothing untrue; if one marble were any other color than white, then all the marbles in the bin would not be white. You've not managed to convince anyone otherwise. Drinking Beverage

Is there something about "blind to the future" that you don't get or is it that you just don't like it?
