This is absolutely identical to every conversation I’ve ever had with a creationist on the subject of evolution — it’s seriously like they’ve dug through my chat logs or e-mails or something. (The more likely reason, of course, is that creationists’ arguments are unchanging and eternal.)
The burden is always on the evolution-supporter to not only understand the religion of the person making ridiculous claims, but also to discredit the same ignorant claims about what evolution supposedly posits to begin with. Why can’t creationists learn about the theory of evolution first, then try to debunk what it ACTUALLY implies about the natural biological processes that led to the diversification of life on Earth?
Kirk and Ray. Gee. I wonder who he means by that.
