Got any for grown ups
Should of tried this bloke
I dont understand your question. I'm going to need more details.
The earth must be flat because if it was round we would all slide around.
Now that we are on the subject of flat vs round i just had a great chat with my partner.
I showed her a new trick with the little girl kitten she brought home last month.
The trick consisted of me telling her to rub the cats ear, then her belly , then her testicles........................................
Moral of this?................................Do not send missus to pick up girl kitten.
That is also a valid point of view
Try watching the first 01:12.
I have wondered how religious fundamentalists would behave when confronted with undeniable proof that (at least part of) their belief system is based on falsehoods.
(Not trying to start a debate on Evolution vs. Intelligent Design.)
You really think so? Have you ever lived in a different hemisphere? If so, you would know that there are different stars in the sky and stars that are common are close to the equator, i.e. You are looking in a different direction in space.
NO...didn't you see the wink on the end?
And yes I have and yes your right.
You can lay in my back garden and see satellites orbiting that's how good it is here in W.A. where I am how about you?
I have had this discussion with someone who actually believes in flat earth theory and there is basically no getting through to them, I can easily prove to any flat earther who shows me their ridiculous map (think of the UN logo) that it's just not possible. With modern day air travel one can fly around the southern hemisphere across the three continents with direct flights simply proving their model just doesn't stack up, to which you get the reply that the flights are fake and you just can't fly them. Whenever they hear a valid argument they just think conspiracy I just leave them be now.
They'll deny it.
There already is undeniable proof that evolution is real.
It's evolution when man took the wolf and selectively bread it into all the breeds we have today.
It's evolution when we develop an anti-bacterial treatment that kills 99% of bacteria and the 1% that survive repopulate.
It's evolution when a mammal has a litter of babies and only the ones with fur matching their natural habitat survive because its better camouflage.
And if they don't deny it and accept the facts they'll probably just remain confused because it conflicts with a large portion of who they are as a person. Or they'll pick apart the different aspects of Evolution until you can't explain one of them to their liking/understanding and they'll use that as the basis for invalidating it all.
First I'm told the earth's roundish, now your telling there is no Gods
Sure know how to ruin a blokes Xmas
As long as you keep them in your heart you'll always have your Gods
They are safely locked away in a corner of me brain that I only use occasionally, you have to keep an eye on the shifty buggers tho
NATURAL SELECTION is NOT Evolution!
Were you not listening in high school? There is TONNES AND TONNES of evidence that NS is true. None. NONE. That Evolution is true.
Know the difference!
Evolution is TOTAL NEW, UNRELATED and DIFFERENT species. SPECIES!!!!! There is no "missing link" in the fossil record. There is no proof of evolution... hence "THEORY OF EVOLUTION."
Natural selection is part of evolution. And no evolution does not mean total new unrelated different species. Evolution simply means "change over time".
You're like that science teacher I dated who said the same thing. There's no proof of evolution. It's only a theory. You should watch this video appropriately named "Why saying evolution is "Just a theory" proves you are ignorant."
I find it ironic that you question my high school education when you clearly learned the wrong definition for the word evolution. You're also incorrect about the "missing link". In non laymen terms what you're actually referring to is a transitional species.
You can watch this multi-part NOVA series to learn about human evolution (YouTube, Hulu, Netflix)
You can even view the fossil record and look at all the "missing links" we have between past species.
But don't even say that natural selection is not evolution. You sound about as ignorant as someone claiming the Earth is the center of the universe.
African wild dog was not breed from wolves
Well I guess that proves all evolution wrong. Guess we were created with the snap of a finger. Must be. I can't fathom man being on different parts of the globe and training whatever wild beasts are indigenous to that region. That's too much of a leap for my brain to take.
