Why Evolution is correct (and how the religious are fighting it!)
Well worth the view. Ever known that evolution was correct but couldn't cite examples of transitional forms? This video gives gobs of samples, including how reptiles evolved into birds and how whales evolved from deer like ancestors.

Probably the best quote:

"Scientific fact is defined as a scientific theory in which the proponderence of the evidence is so great, that it would be perverse to deny it."




"IN THRUST WE TRUST"

"We were conservative Jews and that meant we obeyed God's Commandments until His rules became a royal pain in the ass."

RE: Why Evolution is correct (and how the religious are fighting it!)
I was just watching this last night on youtube, and I completely agree. Great video and a must watch. The truly amazing thing is how people do, and will continue to deny evolution despite mountains upon mountains of tried, tested, and concrete evidence.

Good video!

Anyway:
Variation.
Selection.
Propagation.

Life exhibits those three phenomena. Therefore evolution. It's that simple.

Most theists, when pressed, will acknowledge that these three things occur. Anyone without rocks for brains will acknowledge that.

There's a portion of America that doesn't know about heliocentricism. There's a huge portion that believes in a literal and imminent apocalypse. There's a portion that would be laughed out of any competent university of two hundred years ago.

That's what happens when a religiously-inspired revelry in ignorance becomes endemic.

There's idiots everywhere, of course, but the good ol' USA seems to be unique in that it's composed of an incredible global academic elite grafted to a huge mass of proud know-nothings.

Re: Why Evolution is correct (and how the religious are fighting it!)
As I've stated, in a recent study it showed the more religious a society is the more dysfunctional it is. America is now proof of this since it is one of the most religious 1st world nations and usually ranks at, or near, the bottom of many important things. i.e. Education from k-12, health care even though they spend more on it (Cuba and the USA are ranked close in health care. Cuba is a poor 3rd world nation. What's America's excuse? The irony is that Cuba's is better, it is ranked low because they don't have the latest high tech equipment.), etc, etc.

It's a good thing that they don't burn heretics at the stake anymore and it't not from a lack of trying either. It seems, though that a growing number of these elite are immigrants..... It also seems that the best studends in your fineest universities are foreigners as well. Most Americans don't go into the sciences. They usually go into business or law. Professions they feel will make them the most money the fastests. America has around 5% of the World's population but a 3rd of it's lawyers......

Sad but true. The largest number of new cases who are HIV positive are in rural counties of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. One reason this is such is that many people there believe it is a curse from God, like the Bible talks about leprosy, rather than a disease caused by a virus, which can be prevented.

Yeah, it's a disease for them there homos. What they may not realize is that they are right, but not for the reason they may believe. It's a disease for 'homo'sapiens. Big Grin
