ON THE ISSUE OF ORIGINS, YOU MIGHT BE A FUNDY ATHEIST IF…

31. You ignore “Time Magazine’s” poll, which states that only 28% of Americans believe in evolution. But of course, “Time Magazine” must be been run by creationists.

 32. You teach a belief only held by 28% of a nation, as truth beyond any shadow of a doubt because only educated people believe in evolution. Yet of course, you ignore that fully educated scientists in most other nations have proven against Darwinian theory. Like the Chinese paleontologist who reportedly says: “In China we can criticize Darwin but not the government. In America you can criticize the government but not Darwin.”

 33. You think man evolved from monkeys but get mad when somebody calls you one.

 34. You think that if schools teach the Intelligent Design theory of creation, they should also teach the “stork theory” of where babies come from. 

35. You demand that Christians study advanced evolutionary biology before making claims about natural selection. You then claim that their theological ideas, which you have never examined before, are pure nonsense.

  1. 31. Just because a majority of people believe something doesn’t mean it’s true.

    32. See 31

    33. People didn’t evolve from monkeys. Monkeys and humans (and all life) evolved from common ancestors. This is an old, tired, and wrong argument.

    34. Actually your logic is impeccable on this one. I can find no fault in your conclusions. However, your premise needs work.

    35. Really? There’s no difference in complexity and subtlety between advanced biochemistry and genetics and theology? Really?

  2. Thank you dezrah for your thoughtful comments.

    Dezrah also responded to a few other “Fundy” assumptions.Go to the previous selections to see her responses.

  3. To be honest, I don’t care what percentage of Americans “believe” in evolution. What’s important — since it’s a scientific theory — is what percentage of scientists consider it to be true and accurate. And that number (I’m rounding down here) is 99.9%.

    Intelligent Design is not science and proponents of such should stop pretending it is. If you want it taught in school — and you can truly do it in a means that does not promote a specific religious doctrine — then it belongs in philosophy class, not science class.
