Guys, I think this evolution thing may have a touch of truth. Hot dogs have evolved to having a thick corn-like hide and a wooden stick protruding from their nether region!

When we're all replaced by robots one day I wonder if the robots will dig up a guy with an artificial hip and assume the corpse was a 'transitional form'.

I wonder if there are some confused souls who actually think evolutionary theory dictates that someone in a wheelchair is a intermediate between a human and an auto.

We did have someone here awhile back who thought that evolutionists thought starfish were the result of fish breeding with stars. He even furnished an illustration of that and another of his odd ideas

THE SAD TALE OF A MOTOR FAN
by
H. A. Field

Young Ethelred was only three
Or somewhere thereabouts when he
Began to show in diverse ways
The early stages of the craze
For learning the particulars
Of motor bikes and motor cars.
It started with a little book
To enter numbers which he took,
And 'though his mother often said
"Now do be careful Ethelred.
Oh dear, oh dear what should I do
If anything ran over you?"
Which Ethelred could hardly know
And sometimes crossly told her so...
It didn't check his zeal a bit
But rather seemed to foster it.
Indeed it would astonish you
To hear of all the things he knew
He'd guess the make and get it right
Of every car that came in sight.
He knew as well it's MPG
It's MPH and LSD,
What gears it had, what brakes and what;
In short he knew an awful lot.
Now when a boy thinks day and night
Of motor cars with all his might
He gets affected in the head
And so it was with Ethelred.
He took long drinks from mug and cup
To fill his radiator up.
And went about upon all fours
And usually, to get indoors
He pressed a button then reversed
And went in slowly back most first.
He called himself a Packford Eight
And wore a little number plate
Attached behind with bits of string
He looked just like the real thing.
He drove himself to school and tried
To park himself (all day) outside.
At which the head became irate
And caned him on his number plate.
And then one day an oily smell
Hung around him and he wasn't well.
"That's odd," he said, "I wonder what
Has caused this rumbling pain I've got?
No car should get an aching tum
From taking in petroleum."
At that he cranked himself but no...
He couldn't get himself to go.
He merely whirred a bit inside
And gave a faint chug-chug, and died.
Now since his petrol tank was full,
They labelled him inflammable
And wisely saw to it that he
Was buried safely out at sea.
So if at any time your fish
Should taste a trifle oilyish
You'll know that fish has lately fed
On what remains of Ethelred.

Or as an EVILutionist, should I have said plotted on that?

No need to plan.

Two ways to take that response:


1. Which train wreck are you taking responsibility for?

b) Would you take credit for it then?

I should add that the Turkish Holocaust denying creationist Harun Yahya (real name Adnan Oktar)[1] has his own "interesting" version of this. From his website:




...Evolutionists say that fish, for example, have come from a creature that resembles a starfish. This means that one day, due to mutation, a starfish lost one of its arms, and during the next millions of years it lost all of its arms except for some that started by themselves to develop into fins.


Source (http://m.harunyahya.com/tr/Books/1023/Wonders-Of-Allah%E2%80%99s-Creation/chapter/938/Fossils-That-Evolutionists-Just-cant-Seem-to-Find-)


Folks, this is just the sort of thing you just cannot make up. Here is an image from that webpage illustrating what he is babbling on about:

And here from his gloriously inept book Atlas of Creation is this including the caption:


21079
For example, evolutionists claim that starfish evolved into real fish over millions of years.
According to that claim, there must exist many transitional forms between the two species.
However, not one fossil belonging to any such transitional form has ever been found.
There are starfish and fish in the fossil record, but no forms between the two.










1. Yahya and his group which are widely known for his use of blackmail, extortion and threats of violence against opposition, use of cocaine, and encouraging a theocratic revolution, were enthusiastically embraced by the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), the YEC group founded by the "Father of the modern creationist movement" Henry Morris who then lied through their teeth about their association after news leaked out to non-YECs: http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/showthread.php?9891-Can-YEC-sources-be-trusted&p=296919&viewfull=1#post296919

For a second there YECs almost sounded cool.

Alas, it only lasted one second.
