I Am No Expert

Here’s a new weaselly Christian thing going around when they realize that they have to grudgingly accept evolution as a fact. “Well, I believe that microevolution happens, but not this macro-evolution thing.”

Here’s how one yoyo puts it:

 I believe in evolution on a small scale. We see evolution from a maggot to a fly. However, to say that humans came from a single cell organism is a bit far fetched.

Is it really? Damn, you’ve killed your own assertion before you could even get your point across. What you are describing is growth, not evolution; and even if that were evolution, then why yes, a human life did come from a single cell. Not so far-fetched now, huh?

What these creationists always miss is the massive scale of time that changes happen across. Small wonder, because they think the Earth is 6000 years old. Look pal, I can’t even conceive the amount of time that life has had to bring us to our present state of nature. And you can’t either. But we can both learn by studying the clues that bring us to our facts. We share DNA with every living thing imaginable. We resemble other creatures, even. The signs are all there. But no, you think all your answers can be found in a bible. And that’s where you keep fucking up. You are trying to prove God exists by showing me a book that says God exists. My children’s Hardy Boys novels are not proof of the existence of the Hardys. I appreciate the fact that you’d like to turn that around on me and say that just because Darwin said it, it’s not necessarily true.

I give up. It’s gotten so bad that you want to deny the scientific method. I’m out of ideas.

Until y’all realize that that book is fiction, you’re never going to get it. Take an objective look. Step a bit back and read it. It’s pretty fucking weird, isn’t it? You really think that’s how shit happened? Isn’t evolution a bit less bewildering than Genesis, Leviticus or Revelations?


Oh, well. At least I can say I tried to help.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
