This isn't another one of those videos where they say that evolution is random chance, are they?
And the ones where they say that because something is a theory means that it's wrong because the other way (which is 100% faith based) says that it knows solid answers?
And the ones where they say that evolution can't exist with creation theory?
[watches a little]
Okay. Evolution theory ≠ Big bang theory
[watches some more]
Oh wow. People on the streets [some of which I'd be surprised if they have a high school diploma] are not experts. Amazing discovery you guys!
Also, why is it always man evolving from apes? What about dogs evolving from wolves or something like that?FUN THING ABOUT EVOLUTIONARY THEORY:
The theory of evolution says that biological beings on earth evolve at some rate. It does not say that man evolved from ape, it does not suggest how the earth was formed, and it most certainly doesn't say any higher power could not of existed because evolution is true. It's not like from just fossil records we can say, "this is your exact family record going from unicellular organism to your current human form."
"The big problem evolutionists have is that they're finding a huge gap in the fossil record."
It's not like everything turns into the fossil. The conditions need to be just perfect for that to happen. Not to mention that 3/4 of all fossils that they do find are entirely incomplete.
"There's nothing to link apes to human."
Cro-Magnon? Neanderthal? Lucy?
[A bunch of BS on how the fossils of these species were all humans or chimps.]
Alright, for those things I'd need to see their sources because I looked it up and I couldn't find anything saying that Lucy was a 3 foot tall chimp, I couldn't find anything saying that they confused one of the many Neanderthal fossils with an old man that had arthritis.
(comparing two models of planes) "does this mean that the jet evolved from the little biplane?"
No, but they both evolved from a common ancestor (the first working airplane) which is the same thing they say about us and chimps. Not that we evolved from chimps because that would be impossible. It's similar to this argument: "So you and your cousin are related?" "Yes." "Did you give birth to your cousin?" "No." "Well then you're not related."
[Science damnit why am I still watching this]
OMG!!!1 AIRLINES WON'T LET NON-HUMANS ON BOARD THE AIRLINE? EVOLUTION IS A LIE! Next.
"There are some scientists that would have us believe that primeapes are just about as intelligent as human beings."
I mean... relatively speaking... but...
"So Kirk and I took an orangutan to lunch to see if it was true."
[a couple minutes of that, ignoring the reference to the 10 comandments]
Somebody teach this orangutan some table manners!
"You don't get Orangutans forming themselves into an orchestra [...] this isn't because he's a prehistoric man that is less evolved than us."
So let me get this straight what their view of Evolution is: things evolve so that they can play double bass?
[something about Darwin being sexist]
How does that support your theory again?
"Charles Darwin wants us to believe that black people are less evolved than whites"
Nonsense, I see black people in orchestras all the time.
There's one right the-
[Trying to disprove evolution with an evolution proponent saying that it's an unprovable theory]
Well, yeah, that's the whole point of theories - that they're not laws. And it's not like you can expect humans to know everything about everything. We are human, after all.
"A wise man said, 'man will believe anything as long as it's not in The Bible.' Unfortunately, that is so true."
Ha. Like your arguments?
Wait. Woah woah woah. I thought the whole point of ID was to avoid mentioning The Bible.
What was your product again?
"The parrot that's on your arm God created, how could science make a parrot?"
Well, when one male parrot loves a female parrot of the same species...
Oh gee this is going to be hard.
Also, that's a very bold assumption to say that that parrot was born of immaculate conception. Most creationists fall flat at, "God created parrots."
[by not talking about evolution] It also means I don't have to learn words like Rhinoracathactasarus
I'm sure people talk to you about that one all the time.
[Metaphor involving a plane and a parachute - plane representing the earth which is apparently going to crash, the parachute being faith in God]
Reasons to put on parachute:
1) The maker of the plane has his name written all over it.
2) It's a new plane.
[Starts asking a people if they're a good person based on the 10 commandments]
But let's have fun with this argument anyways.
[Says that you won't go to hell if you sin if you believe in Jesus]
Note: This is how some people justify murders.Conclusion:
First off, get your message straight. Are you selling Creationist theory? Intelligent Design? Catholicism?
Based off of what they were saying, there's no way that creation theory can disprove evolutionary theory. Creation theory says that a higher power (in their case, God) created everything. Why couldn't those things of gone on and evolved via natural and artificial selection? Why is it impossible to believe even something as simple as all species of horse evolved from the same base species? Why is it so hard to believe that all domesticated animals didn't exist until humans started artificially selecting them? Why is it so hard to believe that dramatic changes in the earth's climate wouldn't influence any kind of change in its inhabitants?
Two problems with chicken vs. the egg: 1) Things do not evolve separately from their group. They would evolve as a group and very very slowly over periods of millions of years and generations upon generations of unmeasurable changes. 2) These changes are so small and happening so readily that it'd be hard to pinpoint exactly when something became a species. That is to say that every species is an intermediate species. Grizzly bears are different species than they were 2 generations ago - even if the change is undetectable and they seem to be the same godless killing machines that they are there's still slightly different than the other generations of grizzlies because of whatever reason - climate changes, changes in food supply - whatever.
Lastly, Evolutionary Theory has empirical evidence. Even if you do have to stretch the imagination to believe some of the things that Evolutionists have come up with, it's still more than creationists have for their 100% faith based ideas.Appendix:
Evolution: A change in the genetic composition of a population during successive generations, as a result of natural selection acting on the genetic variation among individuals, and resulting in the development of new species.
a theory, but that doesn't mean that it is wrong. Theories are a mechanism for finding new facts, theories, and hypothesis.
